Enjoyable

Very good food and service but there were 8 of us and we felt that we were rushed at the end of the meal.

The food here was delicious the atmosphere was relaxing and we didn't have to wait very long to be seated. Don't be an earlybird if you don't want to wait. The majority of diners eat early around here

we went with friends to this restaurant and had a great time and meal. The staff were very helpful and attentive. The calamari was done just right, tender and lightly breaded. Not greasy at all. The pastas were done to perfection. My husband had the salmon and thought it was fantastic. The shrimp and pasta dish was to die for.... More

It's not too often you find a good Italian (?) restaurant in a mall location. We had made reservations for a larger party but 3 had to cancel. The staff immediately showed our remaining party of 3 to a nice table towards the back near a corner which was good for people and meal watching! My two friends had been... More

Was on the way home from golf and noticed the full parking lot. Had no reservation but was lucky to get 2 seats in the bar where Scott took care of us. He makes a great martini. Bread was served with butter not EVOO which I thought was odd. My partner had a parmese77an combo chicken, veal and shrimp special... More

After a hot day of golf we were head back to the rental condo at Sanibel. As if there was a magnetic pull to my vehicle, I quickly turned into a driveway off the main road . I saw the neon signs that was the restaurants name. We entered, still in golf attire- and I immediately sensed we were a... More

Dinner at Ariani last Friday night was another gastric pleasure. This time I went for the basic, Spaghetti with Italian sausage. I've used spaghetti as the acid test for Italian restaurants for the last 30 years and it continues to amaze me that some Italian restaurants can't get it right. That is not the case for Ariani, the spaghetti was... More

I guess from the title you already know I really liked this place. It is one of those restaurants where every meal, every time is super. We had not been in a while and when we went back one of our favorite waitresses came by to say hi. She (Yari) is the sweetest young lady ever. We had one of... More

Six friends and I had a reservation and upon arrival were immediately seated in a wonderful, semi-private room with views of the main dining area. Soon, the very animated chef/owner Dario stopped by our table and proceeded to explain the "northern Italian" menu and specials. Our orders were all over the menu, including pasta, steak, beef liver and lasagna. The... More
