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!

My wife have I have enjoyed dining at Cafe Arrivederci for many years. Pedro, the manager always accommodates the us with table and special food needs. We are in love with the butternut squash ravioli and escargot. Oman and Anita top the list as servers.

We ate out on the patio in warm weather with a group of 8. The food was quite good and everyone was happy with their choices. The service was good. It might depend on what night you go to dinner and when you go that makes a difference on service but it's usually good. The restaurant could do a better... More

My friend, husband and I went here today for lunch for my birthday. It is our favorite place--partly because of the outside patio and we can walk from our house. I think I reviewed Arrivaderci previously and said we have never had a poor meal here. There are always special specials; today was salmon with pasta and a bonus of... More

My daughters and I were a bit disappointed. Not really a family place on a Friday night - more of an older and less adventurous crowd. Service was staggered so we didn't get served all at the same time. Food was very average.

We tried to go to the Sol Restaurant in San Rafael but there was a line halfway down the block. Got on my phone a looked up restaurants in San Rafael on Trip Advisor and found that Cafe Arrivederci was rated second of all restaurants. We all were happy to find this place. Maybe second most popular but probably the... More

We chose this restaurant almost by accident after a long day travelling, and to our delight, it was just wonderful. Our server was delightful, very helpful and gave us excellent tips for dinner choices. The meal itself was outstanding, with a delicious wine to complement the flavors. Having travelled in Italy, I found it to be very reminiscent of meals... More

The staff is so friendly the food is amazing, you get what you pay for - not overpriced. But make sure to call to make reservations especially on the weekends because they get really busy. Oh And the hostess is pretty cute too ;)
