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

We just got back from Italy a few weeks ago. This place is super good and very authentic. The wine specials were an excellent value. We ate the lamb special, lobster linguini, truffle oil risotto, and a shellfish handmade pasta. Each dish blew our minds!! The servers at very attentive.

We stumbled upon this gem after a long day at the zoo. Scrumptious calamari fritti and bruschetta followed by huge portions of pasta entrees! We tried the Arrabiate, the Cleopatra, the Mediterraneo, the black linguine ... Each one was better that the last. The Vitello Milanese comes with a huge portion of baby arugula salad and roasted farm vegetables. Combined... More
