Welcome to Amano Bistro and wine bar!

Enjoy gourmet pizza, fine Italian food, and seasonal daily specials with 25 wines by the glass to choose from.


Amano Bistro owners Eric and Kathy Bower have lived beneath the South Mountains for over thirty years. In the early years Baseline Road was a sleepy two lane road with only one traffic light for miles. During this time it was a tourist destination bordered by miles of citrus groves and over a thousand acres of flowers grown by the Japanese flower growers and shipped to all parts of the world.

Baseline fruit stands offered the best variety of sweet oranges anywhere and extras, such as fresh squeezed juices and date shakes. The Japanese flower stands were a perfume of fresh cut flowers and also had shelves full of seasonal vegetables, melon and fruit. No need to grow tomatoes as the Japanese gardeners offered a box of ripe beefsteak tomatoes for two dollars.

Amano Bistro was opened in 2004 with the concept taken from the early years of Baseline Road. Offer tasty, honest Italian food using the freshest and finest of ingredients and do whatever it takes to provide a comfortable and memorable dining experience. This is a neighborhood Bistro where you can relax over wine and order your favorite item or try something new and different from our daily changing specials menu. Whether you order fresh seafood, fine steaks, pasta specialties, or gourmet pizza, Amano will treat you like family under the shadow of the South Mountains.
