Arugula Restaurant strives to surpass all of your expectations for an Italian restaurant. We have worked very hard over the past three years to give our guests exceptional service, the finest of local ingredients and a unique atmosphere to dine in. Despite being located in a quiet, secluded area of Washington Township, we can bet you will be amazed. Providing our guests with an exceptional experience at our restaurant is what we live for. With that said, we have taken all of your suggestions and comments over the past few years and have decided to put something new on the table. With a lower price point in mind as well as an opportunity to take a journey through our menu, we have designed an entirely new concept. Grab your favorite bottle of wine and see for yourself!

Excellent food.......if you have three hours for lunch.

As others have stated, the food is top notch. No complaints at all about the food (bread must be purchased and is worth it). I can't comment on dessert because after spending nearly three hours just having lunch, I certainly didn't have time for dessert! There was only one other table in use... read more

Every year for our family Christmas dinner Arugula will put together a tasting/wine pairing menu for us. We do seven courses and the food and wine are both fantastic! The wine is from Auburn Road Winery in Woodstown...our favorites were the Sole (white) and Rustica (red). They try to source everything locally which is great. You must try their antipasti... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Arugula last weekend. We ate here with another couple for the sole reason that it was at a half way point between our homes. We are glad that we decided to try it and hope that you will do the same. The food and service was great. The atmosphere is nice. It can get... More

I am glad they decided to open again for lunch. This is a BYOB, but they do sell full bottles of wine, in case you forget to bring one. This restaurant is beautifully decorated, very upscale. The wait staff is professional while being friendly. I went for lunch with my 90 year old Mother. We both had the Lobster Bisque... More

A bit pricey for its location (strip mall in South Jersey), but don't let either of those factors keep you away! A charming BYOB, the food is top notch, the servers are well trained and informed. We've never been disappointed!

My husband and I had an 8pm reservation, we were seated by 8:15. By 8:40 we still were not greeted by a waitress. We opened our own bottle of wine and waited for what seemed like forever for our appetizers which were very good. By the way, there is no bread for the table. If you would like bread, you... More

The menu has changed a few times over the last year, but it's still all delicious. We started with whipped ricotta cheese, roasted peppers & grilled breads, delish. Next, we had a cheese board with Grana Padana drizzled with white truffle honey, fresh prosciutto & marinated artichoke hearts, excellent. We had pasta next & it did not disappoint. Gnocchi over...

First, the outward appearance of this restaurant (small NJ strip mall) does not do the restaurant justice.They recently renovated the interior and it has helped improve the ambiance. The menu has also been updated and small plate options have been added. My wife and i were celebrating my birthday for this visit. For the labor day weekend, a special 3... More

We recently came here with a semi large party (about 12 people) and while there are nothing but great things to say about the food that we all had - my risotto was the best that I've ever had and many of my companions felt the same way - the service leaves a lot to be desired.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times over the last 2-3 years. The food is consistently very good. Last time was May 2014 and come to find out they now do small plates besides the regular entrees. This is a BYOB place. We had brought a couple of really good bottles of wine since we were celebrating our friend's... More
