We went here for our anniversary. This restaurant does all the little upscale things that make it perfect. The snails (I do not remember the word in Italian) were excellent. Not the usual broiled with garlic butter. My veal saltimbocca was very tender. We saved room for flaming bananas foster for dessert. There was also a gentleman playing the piano... More

The food was prepared perfectly and served at the perfect temperature. Our waiter was very attentive. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

We had guests in from out of country and wanted to take them someplace special. Consulted Trip advisor and found this restaurant. Based on the reviews, we had high expectations. We were NOT disappointed. Normally I try to vary the menu to see how they react. Spaghetti and meatballs were not on it so, let's try that. Pasta was cooked... More

This may be the best Winter Haven has to offer and that means it is excellent. We usually eat there in Friday evenings when they have a very fine pianist who plays without sheet music. Ask him (or her) to play a favorite and more often than not he will have it in his memory bank. But, though the music... More

Arabella's is actually 3 connecting eateries: the fine dining restaurant, a homemade pizza etc kitchen, connected by their upscale bar (from witch you can order from either restaurant.) Veal Arabella's (or any veal dish) is great; their lamb is terrific; blackened shrimp on salad greens with strawberries and other goodies is a great lunch ... I've never had a disappointing... More
