The service, food, and atmosphere at Arabellas is impeccable. It's a great place to have dinner with my husband or friends. The wait staff is both friendly and accommodating. It is one of our favorite places to eat in Winter Haven

The service and food does not get any better than this in Winter Haven and is among the best in Polk County, and if it's my vote alone, it's the absolute best!!! You cannot go wrong with you order! And the people are the nicest I have ever experienced. They treat you like family --- maybe even better some days!... More

Arabellas is a cut above the other Italian restaurants in town in both food quality and ambience. My wife and I have found it to be a relaxing and quiet place to enjoy delicious Italian fare. If you want to save some money, then check them out for lunch.

The food, simply put, is amazing. Everything is bursting with flavor and melts in your mouth. This is a fine dining restaurant with a wonderful pianist who is friendly and will play requested songs. The service is impeccable and you pay for all of the above. This is not a cheap restaurant but if you want quality and quiet, this... More

I had heard about Arabellas from a friend who spoke highly of it. They were right on point. The restaurant itself is very nice inside with high ceilings, old brick wall and large windows. The service was impeccable. The food was excellent from start to finish. We started with appetizers and ended with desert. I had a shrimp appetizer that... More
