Four of us ate here in August 2014. Cocktails were creative and flavorful. Wine suggestion reliable. Antipasto was well presented and had a good variety of meats, cheeses, terrines, etc. Our main dishes were all enjoyed greatly: Pork Arosto--pork belly coated with tuscan spices and rolled and roasted, with a spinach and potato roasted cake which was a good complement...

Attended a business meeting with a "private" dining area upstairs. The food was fantastic! I'm a huge Italian food fan and they really did a great job with very tasty food. I would definitely would eat here again the next time I return to Charlotte.

Dinner was very good and the scallops were huge. I was disappointed in the dessert especially the cheesecake. It was tiny and dense. Other than that the atmosphere, waitstaff, and entertainment were excellent.

Had dinner here with a business associate on a week night. This restaurant gets very busy with the business clients in town, so make reservations or show up early. The wait staff is friendly enough, but not that welcoming. I selected the 'Shaved Kale Salad' and 'Pizza Bianca'. The salad was certainly healthy and filling, but needed a little extra... More

We chose this restaurant to celebrate a birthday dinner, based on reviews. The food was not good and overpriced. The ribeye was overcooked ( ordered med rare) with only 5 thin slices on the dish; the white salmon was a tiny portion- very overpriced; the lamb shank was tough and tasteless; but the worst was the pork chop, which was...

I enjoy wine and not just California wines, but from different religions, this place gives you the opportunity to try all sorts of Italy wines, from whites, reds, Spumante, and ports. If you enjoy exploring your wine palette, this is the place and at reasonable prices. The food is also an exploration, we did the 3-course prize fare at $30.... More

First time dinner for two at Aria's was nice. The service was excellent and the spaghetti with meatballs was very good. Ravioli was tasty but a bit too much cheese to enjoy the taste of the pasta. The real treat was the pizza appetizer. Easily a meal by itself with extraordinary fresh ingredients. One is enough for two (we had... More

In the middle of summer, downtown Charlotte is a thriving spot--especially with Millennials. And Aria seems to be, justifiably, one of the reasons. Great location, ambiance, and cuisine--and an all menu 3-course prix fixe at $30. The food theme is Italian meets New American, which I quite enjoyed. I started with a Caprese, which was a jewel like portion, but... More

Close to the Blumenthal Theater, the food is great and at a variety of costs. The atmosphere is energetic where lots of friends come to share time and lives together. Loved it.
