“Love it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Our lunch at Arrechissimo was great. Good food, excellent friendly service. I had the chicken arepas and passionfruit drink which were wonderful. Especially enjoyed the drink. My husband enjoyed his Venezuelan Typical Plate of rice, shredded beef, black beans and plantains. Can't wait to go back. It is a takeout restaurant, but does have a couple outdoor tables for the warmer months. I've never had Venezuelan food before, but as good as this was, it must be authentic.

“Some of the best arepas I have ever eaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I absolutely LOVE Arrechissimo! It is very unassuming, and if you aren't watching where you're going, you may miss it. Don't miss it though!! The food is amazing and Javier, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. You can tell that he is proud of what he is serving, and he should be proud! Even living in South America, I didn't eat arepas as delicious as the ones I have had here at Arrechissimo! Definitely try the sweet plantains, and the tequenos (a twist on mozzarella sticks) also!

“The only place in Cincinnati to get authentic Venezuelan food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Arepas, la reina pepeada, pabellon criollo, tequenos, tostones, quesillo, soon to have cachapas...this no frills joint is exactly of the best kind - great carefully prepared food that is authentic and delicious. There is no indoor seating area, just a few tables outside so the majority of people get it to go - which means you miss out on hanging out with the super friendly owner Javier. He's got a great story that once you hear will make you want to support arrechissimo. Try it out and you won't be disappointed!
