Excellent, every single time. I really like how different the menu is and the changing specials. Personally I dont have pizza here as there is so much more to be had! The lamb fillet with roasted garlic and spinach is truly tip top. My first visit really impressed, as I was not happy with the pasta - the owner tried... More

The caprese salad is devine and the salmon ravioli and gorgonzola gnocchi are some of our... More

I tried the special 'stretched' pizza. It was awesome! Service was great. There seemed to be quite a few satisfied customers when we were there.

The $48 weal was a premium spaghetti dish with seafood and an incredible jug of white wine. (If you prefer water this meal will be a lot cheaper : ) I also had the risotto and loved it.... More

We ate one evening at Aria. The pizzas were good but not outstanding as previously described. The staff was pushy and tried a number of times to sell us overpriced items e.g. glasses of Prosecco or fizzy water from Italy. The prices are generally expensive for what you get.

We stumbled into this gem literally by accident--got tired of walking and decided to eat here. What a pleasant surprise! The food was outstanding. I had homemade macaroni noodles that were just amazing, followed by an excellent chocolate mousse.
