“Authentic Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2014

Forget the decor, the food is fabulous. Authentic Italian. Generous servings that are full of flavour. Mama in the kitchen supervising all the food. Papa in the dining room supervising all that goes on. Family business that is worth going to.

“Its Authentic Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2014

I have been going to the Arrivederci for the past 35 years, it is one of my favourite restaurants. Its authentic, non pretentious, has a great atmosphere and is very affordable. If your some type of connoisseur who want to wants to be critical of how tender your spaghetti is, then go somewhere else.

You can also BYO wine, love the Derchi.

“Cheap meal, average at best ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2014

Recently attended for dinner. Atmosphere of restaurant is cheap and cheerful. Food pretty average but very affordable. Service was good. Not the best Italian in town but ok for a cheap feed.

“Poor effort”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2014

Ordered three pastas and one pizza takeaway, Husband had boscaiolla it was all cream and pasta, had to get the magnifying glass to find the two bits of mushrooms and there was no bacon. Son had veal pasta only two bits of veal mince. Also had works pizza and asked for no pineapple, the pizza had pineapple and had to pay extra for olives and anchovies on a works pizza! Obviously cannot be bothered to make an effort these days and also read the pizza order properly.

The only thing they do well is the garlic bread. Not worth the $75

Won't be returning.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

The service was terrible, the main waitress was quite rude. Ordered the gnocci and it was late and overcooked and over priced. The gnocci was rock hard and my boyfriend had pretty much finished his meal before I got mine. No apologies or anything. Pretty expensive for poor quality. A real shame.
