Our language skills may be a little rusty but we don’t need to be fluent in Italian to know that the Amarone restaurants could be described as ‘assolutamente fantastico’.

Great customer reviews
Amarone are some of the most popular restaurants on 5pm Dining. Here is what a couple of recent diners had to say about the Glasgow restaurant:
‘Not been to Amarone for a while… don’t know why… Got there at 5.30 and didn’t leave til 8.45! There was no pressure on us at all to leave. Food was fabulous… menu selections on 5pm menu were excellent… Definitely not going to leave it as long to go back!’
‘Staff very helpful and friendly. Food was lovely and choices good on the 5pm lunch menu. Not rushed and staff regularly checked on us to see we were happy with food etc.’
Give the gift of dining
A chic Italian dining experience is just the thing to brighten up the skint post-Christmas months.
Multiple purchases of up to eight are allowed, so this could be an excellent gift for a couple who’d enjoy a romantic night out.
