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.

Stumbled upon Aria after seeing a sign in Founder's Hall advertising the bar bites menu. We were looking for something to eat very quick. First-- the service. We tried to find a spot in the bar. A woman who was not dressed like the servers noticed us and said she would help us find space. There wasn't much she could... More

Fantastic Italian food. had home made pasta with peas, green beans and Sweet breads. Can't get any sweeter than that. Service was great; server was outstanding, and food was nearly to die... More

Server was friendly and attentive. Fresh baked bread with olive oil was amazing. Shaved kale salad was fantastic. Loved it so much, I went back again the next night.

We had dinner here last night. I loved the open kitchen, the prices and portions were perfect, and the service was fantastic. I had the rabbit which was seriously good. The kale salad was big enough to split. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I visited Charlotte a couple weekends ago. We decided to try Aria for dinner. We did not have a reservation but we were promptly seated because we arrived late in the evening. We ordered the eggplant appetizer and the mussels. Both were delicious. I mean, delicious. I've never witnessed my husband rave over the mussel broth before,... More

Excellent food and atmosphere. The drink menu is very impressive. We actually had some apps, salad and a margherita pizza which were all fabulous. The service was excellent and the location is top notch in downtown Charlotte. Pricing was very reasonable for a restaurant like this. We will definitely go back!

So good we went back a second time! Enough said. Try the meat and cheese try; to share between 2-4 people. Ask if your pasta entrée can be shared as the lasagna portion was HUGE; but tasty.

We went to Aria last night for the first time and probably won't be back any time soon. We were dining before BMG and celebrating a birthday. I had made reservations and when we arrived the hostess knew exactly what was going on, was very friendly and immediately took us to our table. The restaurant is one large space so... More

Aria was one of my favorite spots when I worked in Charlotte this summer; I'd come for lunch all the time and was always very pleased. Nice service with great management, and they have the BEST dip that comes with the bread; it's basically like a mix of white beans and olive oil - fantastic and something I've never seen... More
