I have been here twice with groups (10 - 15 adults). The staff is friendly and accommodating. The outdoor area is beautiful in good weather. The food is tasty - all the classic dishes.

This is a fun and unpretentious Italian restaurant that serves consistently good old-school fare. Don't look for anything cutting edge or nouveau, "slow cook"; you won't find it because they don't serve it. Instead, try the Saltimbocca, Marsala, or pesce--Solgliola Alla Mugnaia (fresh Petrale Sole) is a favorite of mine. Also, a reasonably priced and reasonably extensive wine list. The... More

had the salmon pasta pomodoro. Oh my, so good (and, I'm a picky eater). That sauce was killer!! And, the price was reasonable. We went for lunch so it wasn't crowded but great & friendly service. Recommended to my sister who went and enjoyed very much!

Used TA to pick this restaurant. Nice ambiance with decent service. Outdoor seating was available but not in use. Reasonable Italian menu. We had spaghetti Bolognese and chicken parmesan with oil and garlic penne. Recommend, Hope this helps.

Cafe Arrivederci is one of my wife and my favorite restaurants in Marin. We keep going back for their butternut squash ravioli and escargot, but not always available. The alternative is the spinach salad. Always great service and super great food. Pedro, the manager, always makes sure we are well taken care of.

this is a nice Italian red sauce type of place. Sort of an old school throwback with friendly staff, attentive service and a nice atmosphere.

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
