The food was very good. I can recommend the salmon and vodka bowtie pasta and the lobster ravioli. The only downside was that it was an unseasonably warm evening and this restaurant does not appear to have air conditioning. And I'm sure 360 days of the year they don't need it. We just happened to pick the hottest weekend of... More

Very nice vibe. Food tasty. Only problem, is that it is very cramped and tight. Not much space between the tables. I am still a repeat visitor!

The night didn't begin well when we waited 30 minutes for our table despite having a reservation. It seemed like there was only one waiter - though plenty of staff to help out. It took forever to get an order placed - be it for wine or dinner. The salads arrived quickly and were very good. However, it was then... More

I have loved this restaurant for years. The food and staff have always been excellent... Except last night Sunday 6-15-14 6pm. As requested we got a outside table. Service was slow and awful all night. Two entrees came 5 minutes after the other two. Busboy was lacking and the waiter was nowhere most of the evening. I was Very Disappointed!

With two friends I had lunch outside. The penne puttanesca was just perfect with capers and black olives. Bread was warm. Service was great.

I was invited to Arrivederci for my friend's 39th birthday dinner. The restaurant is a tad bit hard to find. I circled the block several times before I found the parking lot. The parking lot is a paid lot. I did not have cash. Luckily, if you leave your car there once the attendant leaves you don't have to pay... More

Wow what fabulous food here. I came here with my family and we LOVED it. My friend raved about it for months but I never got a chance to come until last week. EVERY single dish we got was heavenly. I'd especially recommend the ravioli with mushrooms. It was amazing! My mother in law got the ravioli with salmon and... More
