Amarone Ristorante Near Avalon at Edgewater: Old World Italian Cuisine

Amarone Ristorante is Teaneck's answer to classic Italian food. The restaurant near Avalon at Edgewater dishes out home-style fare that closely adheres to Italian tradition, and the warm ambience reflects these Old World values.

Settle in for a meal with the fresh Caprese salad, and Italian classic, or a grilled Portobello mushroom dressed with balsamic, olive oil, and garlic. Then try the carpaccio, a dish of thin strips of beef with cheese and arugula, or the fried calamari. When it comes to pasta, you can opt for something decadent like the lobster ravioli tossed in a champagne cream sauce, or a slightly more understated plate of broccoli and sausage with tomato. However, the signature pasta is the fettuccine Amarone, dressed in a classic Bolognese. No matter what you order, get a bottle of Chianti or other wine from the extensive list to complement your meal.
