We enjoy this restaurant as the food is consistently good and the prices reasonable. It has an outdoor eating patio which is nice in the summer. Off the beaten path. Parking can be hard on the weekends

I love the pollo sarda at Cafe Arrivederci. It is a savory combination of chicken, pasta, artichokes, olives, and tomatoes. Excellent! When the weather is mild, the patio is a delight.
