Best Italian meal I have had in the city - being gluten free is not your friend when you want a great Italian meal but they had GF pasta and had the truffle and mushroom sauce that was out of this world.

We made an open table reservation an hour before and arrived on time. We waited 25 minutes. Once seated, we had to ask twice to order. Salads came quickly but we waited 30 minutes for entrees. We had to remind them and they had forgotten. By this time the restaurant was almost empty. There was NEVER any apology for any of it. The worst service I have had in a long time. Will not be going back any time soon to a local favorite.

Everything we ordered was excellent. In particular the burrata app/ starter and the Osco Bucco were standouts. Service was prompt, professional and friendly. I also like the neighborhood feeling of the area vs the busy tourist areas. A caution- Osco Bucco is not available every night. Call ahead if that’s what you want.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in town. It is my neighborhood corner place, but even if it weren't that convenient, I would make my way here. The owner Paolo is effusively friendly and with his Italian accent, makes everything sound great. The selection on the menu is broad with old standards and unique dishes you can only find at Amarena. The pastas are homemade and fresh, the sauces are great and the wine selection is appropriate to the food.

The only concern is that it is a bit loud so don't come here if you are looking for that intimate romantic dinner. Make sure you bring your outdoor voice because you will need it. And that is because you will come here again and again so be prepared!

We absolutely LOVED Amarena! We have a French bistro go-to, and have been looking for an Italian go-to. This is it! The service was superb, from the owner/manager/host? right down to the bus staff. The food was equally superb, and the atmosphere was just what we wanted -- warm, intimate, cozy, neighborhood-y. Everything was reasonably priced and the portions were just right -- not small, but not huge (huge = tacky). Loved it, and can't wait to go back... which we will, often!

This neighborhood restaurant is low key and lovely. The owner is warm and welcoming. The menu is sufficiently diverse to satisfy almost everyone. The food is superb. Rich meaty lasagna with a lovely flavorful sauce was my choice. My wife chose the small plate eggplant for herself. The eggplant was perfectly cooked with a light flavorful marinara sauce complementing the dish. Our desert was Creme Brûlée which was very good but slightly less cooked than we typically expect. That did not detract from its delicate taste however. I had complimented the balsamic dipping sauce and the proprietress game us some to take home. It was our first visit and we liked Amarena so much we are bringing family there a week after that 1st visit.

Love this restaurant! Adorable neighborhood spot in Russian hill. The portobello appetizer with blue cheese crostini was amazing. Party all had pastas, all were happy with choices. I had the pasta with seafood, which I loved. Service was lovely, although there was another gentleman (manager?) who kept coming over to try to move us along. I don’t know why, as there was nobody else waiting for tables. Great wine list with lots of choices. I will definitely return!

Love everything about Amarena. Owner and staff are all super friendly and helpful. Food was delicious, we had a party of 5. Everyone loved their pastas and appetizers. Can't stress enough about their service though, you feel welcomed and the owner comes around and talks to everyone like they are friends.

Waited 30min before server/owner came to take our order. No apologies or offers to make up for the neglect. We were only given water in the meantime. Bread wasn't brought until after our order was placed. Food was good but service was horrible (even for a Wednesday 8:45pm reservation). Wont be back or recommend.

I ordered the meatballs and they were bland. I got the lamb shank, which was the special, and it was bland. The worst part though was how slow everything was. We were sat well after our reservation time. We got menus well after we sat. The appetizer took forever to come out. The entrees took forever to come out. The waitress was nice.

Six of us had a great meal. Appetizers of burrata and bruschetta were great. The entrees of assorted pasta, risotto and veal were great. The dessert choices of tiramisu and the chocolate salame were pretty good. Our server was very patient and attentive. Special request for a child was handled easily.
Red wine was stored at room temperature which is nice to look at but I’d prefer something out of a cooler. The bathroom curtain thing didn’t work for me.

Haven’t been back here in a few years and was pleasantly surprised that it has improved as to food quality and value. Nice wine by the glass choices. Great arugula salad we shared, and my salmon entre was great and generous. Except for our seat next to the toilet, all was great.
