We've been to various places in Italy and this definitely has an Italian feel to it. The quality of the food was tremendous Espresso was awesome! Our first time there and we will definitely be back!

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

We visited San Diego with friends from Cobourg, Ontario, Canada and wanted to share our dining experiences with them from last year's visit. We love the location,ambience and great service at Arrivederci. Our friends enjoyed their dining experience. My wife loved her meal, I enjoyed my meal but not as much as our first visit. It may have been my... More

This is a restaurant that I frequent often. It is so fabulous from the Italian speaking waiters to the fresh made pasta through to dessert! What an amazing restaurant for any one who loves Italian food. Having been to Italy, I can attest that it is very authentic in flavor and of good quality. Rigatoni Piccanti, Capellini Arrabbiata con pollo,... More

My husband and I traveled to San Diego in October 2013. The manager where we were staying suggested this restaurant, so we set our GPS and were ready for a great meal. Upon arrival (Halloween) we had a challenge to find a parking spot as the area was busy with those celebrating the night. After many trips around the block... More

My husband and I wanted to try a new Italian restaurant and so I googled best Italian restaurant in San Diego (Hillcrest area). Arrivederci was one of the top rated restaurants on Tripadvisor. I am glad I took the ratings into consideration. We decided to try their dinner menu. When we walked in, our waiter told us to sit anywhere... More
