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

I ordered 1 Pizza and 1 pasta. However every food which I ordered the day was too garic-ky. Does American love garic flavor??

We ate at Arrivederci because our B&B innkeeper highly recommended it. We were greeted ever so pleasantly (wished my dusty Italian had kicked in) and sincerely enjoyed our supper. Lots of sharing among the three of us -- we uttered many yumms and other guttural references reflective of food enjoyment. The wines, by the glass, are very good.

We got there around 7:00 PM right before the dinner rush on a Friday evening (about 30 mins later the line had build up). This is not the place for an intimate dinner (at least not on a Friday night). The tables are very close to each other that you can easily say "pass the salt" and not have to... More

Great Italian food! Service is very good. House wine is excellent. The specials menu is more extensive than their regular menu. Prices are very reasonable. There is a parking lot next to Arrivederci and they validate parking..

Sunday and Monday evenings are easy without a long wait. Mushroom Ravioli was one the best Italian dishes I've ever had. Decadent, rich and heavy with a cream sauce, so perhaps another sauce might also work well.
