How did I forget how much I love Aria? Ahhh...the caramelized gnocchi....the pork arrosto...the braised lamb shank ....the pasta tasting... Hello old friends! Contented sigh. Aria is perfect for a pre-theater dinner. You can valet park for the restaurant and then pick up your car after the show--after you've stopped back in for the excellent tiramisu and an expresso, of... More

Every once in awhile a restaurant experience is truly memorable! This is one of those! Bravo and standing ovation for an aria well done by these folks. Four of us with four different entrees and everyone of them outstanding! Very trendy modern Italian setting with a great waiter (Trevor) who made all the right suggestions from wine to dessert.

The atmosphere and service were great. However, we went for the food and it wasn't great. It was edible, but I've had better Italian at Olive Garden and was hoping for something amazing after reading reviews in here. I had chicken parm and my date had the lamb. The parm just didn't taste great and the lamb was dry. The... More

The staff was very cordial and friendly. Our table was ready shortly before our reservation time which allowed us to seat early and have drinks and discussions while we waited for our entire party. The menu had a good selection of various meals and drinks. The beer and wine list had a very good selection of different types and tastes... More

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...
