Description: The DiCamillo family invites you for dinner Tuesday through Sunday. With our beautiful interior, linens, soft music, fresh flowers & candlelight, you'll feel like you are in Tuscany, yet we're here in the historic little town of Sherman, CT. Our two executive chefs create the classic Italian dishes and offer delectable specials as well, such as Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, Duck Breast, Scallops and more. You may dine in our two dining rooms or on our patio (seasonal).

Hard to believe this is the same restaurant as described by other reviews. The physical restaurant and bar have the possibilities of a fine dining trattoria, however the reality stops there! The staff is mixed, a sweet young lady seating and bussing. For the pricing, fine dining service is way over the heads of the wait staff, service is inattentive and dismissive. And, the food is of marginal quality and defiantly does not warrant the pricing. After dinner, we had to go to American Pie for dessert to cheer up the evening. Will not go back.

Terrible service. We have been going there for the past 9 years. The past 2 owners were great. Food and service were good. Tonight everything was terrible. We waited about an hour and half for just pasta. I looked around and everyone was waiting. I noticed our waitress, which may have been the new owner was fighting with the chef. The chef was cleaning glasses instead of cooking. They were looking around at all the tables like they were confused. I finally asked our waitress what was going on and instead of being apologetic had an attitude. She said they were swamped with the take out. They obviously care more about their take out business than the customers in the dining room.

When we where leaving they served the table next to us the wrong food. I saw the waitress/owner laughing with the chef. When they asked if they were going to get their food the rude waitress yelled "its coming". What is this Mel's dinner?

When we went to the car we looked at take out area and there was the waitress/owner and chef laughing smoking and she was fixing her hair in the reflection again.

Horrible. Will not be back until there is new ownership!

Such a treat! We were treated like kings by the staff. Friendly and helpful in answering questions about the menu and specials. Great choice for a nice dinner out. Food was delicious. Had the classic lasagna and special panseared salmon with black ink squid linguini. Such flavors in these dishes. A Must if your hungry in Sherman or in the area.

We frequently dine at Arrivederci and love the food. We went on Christmas Eve and had an excellent meal. From the appitizers (clams casino, salads) to the entrees (strip steak, chicken marsala, zuppa di pesce) the food was superior. I believe if the restaurant were located in lower Fairfield county it would receive more attention in Connecticut magazines. For the money, we find there are very few restaurants in the area where the cost is reasonable, the quality of food is high, and the wait staff is professional. We have found new ownership to be very accomodating, friendly, and pleasant. I would highly recommend the restaurant for anyone looking for an upper end meal at a reasonable price.

We went and ordered takeout and had two meals, one was pene with sausage and one was veal marsala. The meals cost $40 and they come with no salad at all, when asked the owner responded that it was alacarte...ala carte for salad? The one piece of bread was a roll not warmed up and sliced to pretend to be bread. The veal was so tough that I could not chew it enough to swallow it. The pene with sausage came with ground sausage mixed in their sauce that had so much garlic in it you could not eat it without having a heart attack. That was tossed in the garbage as well. We understood new owners have taken over this place a few months ago. They are not doing anything to impress new customers! Stay home and make pancakes, you will be full and be richer for it.
