Of all the meals we had, the Chilean Sea Bass for $27.00 was probably the best. The chicken Marsala for $21.00 and the Chicken and Veal Parmesean were both good. The beef Wellington for $27.00 was good. The shrimp, chicken, and sausage paella with risotto was okay. Drinks were excellent but pricey - $12.00 for a cosmo. Service was a... More

Had the Escargots as appetizers and liver as main course, my wife crab stuffed tilapia and our friends the veal special with the mussels as appetizer. All of... More

Our family reserved the larger room for a family gathering after a Life Celebration. The staff was very friendly and took good care of us. They had a prepared menu which had a good variety for all types of diners in the group. I had a family of four so we all chose a different item and tasted all the... More

My dad from Germany, my wife and I had a lovely evening at this lively restaurant. Hosts Alice and Dario are special with an extra friendly greeting every time. My half duck was awesome. Verena loved her veal riviera and my dad enjoyed his small beef Wellington immensely. We dined for over two hours and went home truly satisfied.

First visit was over 20 years ago, and we still keep going back. The quality of the food has stayed the same. The owners are the same, always happy to see you when you walk in the door. The Salmon Oscar as well as the Lamb Shank are two of our favorites. Great wine selection and they have a full... More

Our visit was a result of a news article I read...plus a keen interest in Italian foods. Our experience in this restaurant was awesome...totally unexpected! Starting with being greeted at the door & seated immediately with no reservation (don't recommend doing that!). My wife is a spaghetti officianado & says the spaghetti & meatballs was best she's ever had (other... More

our first visit to Ariani was to attend a surprise party with about 30 others. We were seated in a private room, and from the outset the service was attentive and timely. The restaurant was handling a full house as well and so we were quite pleased when the food ordering and serving was accomplished without any delays. In addition,... More

Love the quaint eating areas, and the food is always fresh and impressive. My favorite is the Eggplant Parmesan, and the spinach is incredible! You must get the Astrian salad. Great value for the money! Can't wait to go back!!!

The food is always outstanding here. Specials are so creative. The owner offered an appetizer special....combination caprese with liver pate toast point....delicious. As always, the calamari is so light, you would never know it was fried. The veal liver is melt-in-your-mouth wonderful. All of the menu is excellent. Service is impeccable.
