We stopped in on our way up to Napa. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We had the Cesar, Tomato Mozzarella and Linguini w Clams. Everything was excellent. I highly recommend this place.

Three of us dined here for lunch on a Saturday and were surprised to find the restaurant empty at noon. After being greeted and seated we were treated to an outstanding lunch served with confidence and fresh ingredients. I ordered zucchini fritti apertizer with the pollo sarda and was impressed. Absolutely delicious was the only way to describe my meal.... More

Spicy/mild marinara sauce that was wonderful. The filet of sole was delicious as were the chicken parm and the eggplant parm, mellanze. Overaall everyone enjoyed their... More

This restaurant has been in the neighborhood for many years, under various names. Cafe Arrivederci is by far the best. The food is delicious, the staff friendly and accommodating, the atmosphere lovely, both inside and out. This is the place for friends meeting, groups meeting, bridge playing, retirement parties...anything. They will do you proud. Parking is minimal.

This is not a location tourists would easily find, but it's a favorite of locals and Bay Area people who know it. Food is wonderful, service is great, ambiance a real upper, but not overdone. It's a place we go for special occasions and "let's not cook tonight" dinners too. Seafood Risotto is the best I've ever had. When we... More

Finally. A great Italian restaurant. Carpaccio. YES. Calamari. Bring that. Pasta choices that were tantalizing. Nice variety of salads. Even a burger for those who can't face up to really delicious food. Splendid service and reasonable prices. Loved sitting outside. I had a caprese salad; simple, fresh and perfect for me. Next time I will try the pasta.

The food is very good, no matter what we eat. I like their linguini and clams, my husband likes their veal marsala. The have good salads, nice... More

Excellent food and service. The Calamari Fritti was eccelent. The Crapaccio and the Capellini Al Pomodoro were also very good. However the Vitello Funghi (Sauteed with mushrooms and demi-glazed white) was not very good. I would prefer a Stroganoff type creamy mushroom sauce. But overall all my friends were very complementary and definitely will go back.

We had a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner at Cafe Arrivederci in San Rafael. We always enjoy dining there and it was great to go out on New Year's and not have to pay a high fixed price. The scallop dish was lovely and the service was great.

We've been going here for many years, and I thought it was time for me to acknowledge this fine restaurant. I can honestly say every meal I've had here has been good. Besides the regular menu offerings, which cover almost anything you might want, they have several specials every night. They have a couple of shrimp preparations which I love,... More
