Cafe Arrivederci, San Rafael

I used to sell these lovely people their Italian wines and managed to eat a lunch there at least once a month. They have tried hard to maintain as much " italiano" as possible in food and atmosphere. My food selections have always been good and the service also pleasant and prompt. It is a great... read more

Really good restaurant! The gnocchi was the best I've had and the patio was quaint. Good specialty drinks, as well. If you're in the area - give this a try - you won't be disappointed!

Good, hearty food. A little out of the way, but worth a try. Staff eager to please and crowd looks like satisfied regulars.

Great local Italian restaurant! We loved the feel of this restaurant and because the diners were all greeted by name by the wait staff, we knew there were lots of returning customers. The service was excellent as was the salad we shared. Both our pasta dishes were tasty and cooked perfectly. My favorite part of the meal was the wonderful... More

Amazing dinner with friends. We found this place only by TripAdvisor. We had amazing service, appetizers, dinners, wine, and desserts. We were all so thrilled with everything! Can't wait to come back to eat there again.

My husband and I have been dining at Cafe Arrivederci for years and it still remains a favorite. I love the Veal or Salmon Piccata which is served with a delicious potato au gratin and fresh steamed veggies. The wait staff is attentive and impressive (no notes taken and every meal is correct). It feels like a real Italian cafe.... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. It's tucked back among some residences and has a very Italian decor but not the red velour. I had outstanding service from the bartender-some of the best I've had in months. Food was good-big portions-and served up quickly. The bread pudding made from croissants was incredible.

This is a local favorite of mine. The Sole Dore' (Soglio Alla Mugnaia?) is delicious. It has light batter and a delicious lemony sauce. Their Gnocci is delicious, I like it with Gorgonzola sauce. Their Bruschetta is also fresh and delicious. Calamari is also very nice.
