Amarone Kitchen & Wine

If the deep booths and complimentary prosecco aperitif don’t dazzle, then grilled calamari or halibut carpaccio with pink peppercorns will. Amarone’s handmade-pasta menu boasts classics such as rigatoni with sausage, or on select nights, ravioli revamped—lobster stuffed and tossed with shrimp ragù and zucchini. You might find European expats delving into the robust wine list, which includes a host of Sicilian reds. Tiny as a tack, this hideaway is one of the few culinary standouts on the Sunset Strip.
