We recently spent three nights in San Rafael and upon arrival in our hotel room we checked the hotel information for nearby restaurants. The name of Cafe Arrivederci attracted our attention (we love Italian) and as it was only ten minutes from our hotel we decided to try it out. What a great decision!!!! From the moment we arrived we... More

My family has been coming to Arrivederci for over 10 years. Not only is the food wonderful, but the service and the staff are great. Highly recommend.

Pappardelle Alla Salsiccia was perfect!! Gluten free pasta was not so good, unfortunately. Highly recommend it for family dinner.

Very friendly, some dishes were very good, portions were large, but some of the dishes were a bit disappointing.

The two most important things I look out for when I go to a restaurant: the quality of service and the quality of food. At this restaurant, they exceeded my expectations. Prompt and polite service. Hot delicious food. Our waiter and staff went the extra mile to please friends in my party who were on vacation from Europe. I recommend... More

We were too hungry to continue driving, so we stopped at the first decent rated restaurant on the way to Napa. Sat outside and ordered their wines. Both wines were inexpensive and very good. Do not have high expectations of this place. Its decent but not necessarily a 'detour'. Only ravioli were made in-house or so we were told. I... More

Consistent authentic and delicious food. I love being able to sit outside, by which I mean a beautiful outdoor courtyard/patio area surrounded by beautiful greenery as opposed to what others in San Rafael consider outdoor eating: On the sidewalk.

There is a pleasant atmosphere and outside dining is available when the weather is good. The pasta dishes are very good, but they are best known to me for their excellent lamb chops. Prices are reasonable and service is usually good.

Thank Joseph S
