If you are expecting fancy cuisine, you will be disappointed. But if you are looking for delicious Italian food and friendly service, this is a great place for you. We always go here when we're in town, and everything we've tried has been delicious. Also, extra points for their gluten-free options. Here's a tip: you can go see Nico in... More

We have been coming to Rehoboth/Dewey for 30 years with our family. We discovered Arena's a few years back....The sandwiches are huge, the death fries are a family hit....The service is perfect...We love eating on the patio....Great food

Went here again after 4 years. My experience was much better. Salade was good, perhaps a little too much dressing. Bread was very good as was Chicken Parmesean entre. I rated it 3 stars 4 years ago, and it is definitely better than that. Prices seem to have held, so it is a better value now.

Eventually they were turned down to a bearable level. I ordered Eggplant Parmesan from their Vegetarian portion of the menu. The rolls served were... More

The town of Dewey Beach charges $30.00 for parking anywhere on public property and fines are hefty. The parking hounding is not conducive to a pleasant vacation.

Still annoyed about what happened this past weekend. Stopped in to get two slices of pizza, and was charged $16. When I questioned the guy behind the counter, he smirked at me and insisted I handed him a $10, even though I handed him a $20 (I just came from the ATM, so that's all I had). After we argued...
