Long time favorite!

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).

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.

My wife has the special Ravioli with artichokes and spinach and I had the calamari steak. Both were delicious and abundant. The house Cabernet complemented a fine dinner experience

Excellent Italian cooking with very attentive service. Wine menu offers real bargains rarely found in upscale restaurants. Worth a drive out of the way. Easy parking lot.

Arrivederci is far enough off the freeway that only locals will find it. Good menu, creative specials, and good service. Never disappointed.

I have been to Cafe Arivideri several times. It is one of my favorite restaurants. The steak florentine is incredible, the fish and chicken dishes are great. You can't go wrong with the pasta dishes.

We've been enjoying Cafe Arrivederci for many years for both lunch and dinner, and it remains both an excellent restaurant and a solid value. Perfectly prepared pastas (including gluten free on request), and interesting and always flavorful fish, chicken, and veal entrees. Most entrees are under $20, and include pasta or potato and fresh vegetables. And to finish, if you... More

This is our reliable "go to" restaurant for a good meal in a friendly, warm environment. The food is good and portions are generous. The service is great and we feel like family when we return. Parking is easy. Go and enjoy!
