Cafe Ariana is owned by the same people who own Favaloro's Big Night. This is the casual alternative. We stopped for dessert after dinner. They have a nice choice of tasty gelatos. They also have a nice selection of teas and the service was good

We decided to eat dinner here after a local resident recommended it. This was a good choice for pizza, salad, wine and gelato. The pizza had a very thin crust just like we like it with just the right combination of toppings, cheese and sauce to taste all the flavors. The arugula, pear, candied walnut salad was refreshing with just the right amount of dressing. Their wine selection was very good. The coffee toffee gelato was a perfect was to end our meal. We also enjoyed our conversation with the owner's son. Go enjoy a meal there, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Incredibly friendly staff and owners! We always look foward to visiting this restaurant and we love their pizza and gelato! Everytime we are their we encourage guests to come in off the street and enjoy the fabulous food here! You would think we owned the place (lol) but we don't. We just want people to know how great this quaint little restaurant is. They also own a fine dining restaurant next door that we still need to check out when we go back in August!

We were minutes away from this place and ordered two of their pizzas to go to eat in our room at the Inn we were staying. One pie was a Sicilian with mozzarella, prosciutto, tomato and arugula, another was a sausage and mushroom. As soon as we opened the boxes we knew we were going to be disappointed. What's with the under cooking of pizza anyway? Good grief. Besides that, none of the toppings had any flavor to them, so we decided to ditch the pizzas and get some fast food as the night was getting late and we didn't have many other options. Boo.

We picked this place from the review number. Definitely not disappointed! It is a small cozy cafe with lovey atmosphere. We got 2 of their sandwiches to go, which were both full of flavor and nice side of slaw...perfectly packaged for a seat at Lover's Point!
