Stumbled across this place. I am from Maryland. Best cheese ravioli in rosa sauce I have had in my life. Mom had the lasagna. Everything food service atmosphere was superb. Don't miss this gem

Recommended by our B&B owner. Seemed to be the busiest restaurant in Hillcrest, San Diego. Great atmosphere, great food, generous portions, friendly and efficient staff. Perfect end to a day's travelling from LA to San Diego.

Few Italian restaurants in US tastes like true Italian food and Arrivederci is certainly one of them. Food delicious, great service, nice neighborhood and place. No kids menu but they are flexible to prepare whatever we order for the kids. Really recommend! Arrivederci!
