I came to Amano on a Friday night without a reservation. My bf and I were quickly seated by one of the friendly staff who worked there. We started off with a cocktail each. I got the kiwifruit and he got the pear. To be completely honest, I didn’t enjoy the kiwifruit as much as the pear cocktail, so I think it’s just my personal taste. I got the pappardelle lamb leg pasta and it was amazing! The pasta was cooked perfectly (al denté) and the dish was well seasoned, especially the olives helped it elevate the saltiness of the dish, making it more flavourful. My bf got the sirloin steak and it was the best medium rare steak I’ve seen, not under and not over. I love all Italian restaurants but I think Amano tops it, definitely a must try and I’ll be back!
Always a great experience dining here! The vibe is so cool, the decor is great and the food delicious! Had the mushroom and pancetta tagliatelle which was so yummy - wish it had been a bit creamier though. One of the best places in Auckland to eat!
The best restaurant in New Zealand. Every food is simply amazing and the word “disappointment” just cannot coexist with Amano. Beautiful coffee and cozy but vibrant atmosphere are just extra toppings to Amano. Definitely high-end in terms of price, but worth every cent.
