“Phenomenal Service and Food in a Large Group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2014

our first visit to Ariani was to attend a surprise party with about 30 others. We were seated in a private room, and from the outset the service was attentive and timely. The restaurant was handling a full house as well and so we were quite pleased when the food ordering and serving was accomplished without any delays. In addition, everyone in attendance raved about their food. I ordered the veal liver and it was superb. My husband's seafood over linguine dish was excellent as well. We cannot imagine how the kitchen handled the business! We were very impressed with the atmosphere and definitely will return. I don't know the waiter's name, but he was a top-drawer professional who handled our party with grace and good humor.

“Best Italian!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2014

Love the quaint eating areas, and the food is always fresh and impressive. My favorite is the Eggplant Parmesan, and the spinach is incredible! You must get the Astrian salad. Great value for the money! Can't wait to go back!!!

“Saturday Night with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2014

The food is always outstanding here. Specials are so creative. The owner offered an appetizer special....combination caprese with liver pate toast point....delicious. As always, the calamari is so light, you would never know it was fried. The veal liver is melt-in-your-mouth wonderful.
All of the menu is excellent. Service is impeccable.

“Real Italian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2014 via mobile

Look forward to going to Ariani's for their excellent Veal Parm. Everyone we have ever taken there has enjoyed their meals tremendously. Good food, good wine and good value.

“Lovely dinner with lots of extras”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2014 via mobile

had a wonderful birthday dinner at Ariani. The lamb chops were tender and very well prepared. Their flavor was so good just the right amount of Rosemary and smokiness. The Napoleons were to die for! Crispy crust and creamy custard drizzled with cherry and chocolate syrups. YUM!!!
