Our language skills may be a little rusty but we don’t need to be fluent in Italian to know that Glasgow’s Amarone restaurant 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. We liked this one for being short and sweet:
‘Excellent all round as always.’
This review comes to the same conclusion but goes into more detail:
‘Excellent. Visited with friends for pre-theatre on Saturday. The staff were friendly, helpful, attentive. The food was good with large portions. Would definitely recommend and will be returning.’
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.
