“Always terrific”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

You do best when dealing with one of the owners to seat you. Showed up, admittedly with no reservation, for a 3 early into dinner. The hosting person at the podium dithered and fussed then disappeared. Many tables were empty upon examination and understanding there were reservations, we could have been seated easily. Our dinner guest is a semi-retired clergyman in his early 80's and known at the restaurant albeit appearing in "mufti". Deferring to his age was the obvious resolution if an unknown. Finally, someone intervened and seated us and tables were still available all the time we were there.

“Excellent Italian Food - Incredible Sea Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

The family dined here for our anniversary. The food was excellent, I enjoyed a Monk & fresh Tuna dish. Lovely light red sauce over linguini. We shared an excellent antipasto and the calamari was one of the best I have eaten in some time. All of the family, even the grand kids enjoy the meal. Oh yes, the Cannoli was wonderful. So with such a great chef why not and Excellent rating? First the service was lacking. Almost rushed, no explanation of the evening's specials a waiter who must have had a date as he couldn't wait to take an order. We ordered a bottle of wine, excellent Pino BTW Ladies of Venice. And he is taking orders while pouring. Oh yes, waiter training. After the gentleman tastes the wine, you pour for the ladies first. And then we come to coffee. Don't order any. The coffee at McDonalds is better. They must have run short of beans or grounds...dishwater at best. By all means try this restaurant, the light sauce was EXCELLENT... nicely spiced. The food rates 4 stars, the service...They need training.

“Excellent food, lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

This is a superb restaurant for a special occasion. We've dined there for several years and always had an exemplary experience. Food is consistently fresh and well prepared. Service is attentive without being overbearing. Our favorite restaurant in Rockland County.

“My All Time Favorite...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

It does not get any better than Del Arte. Hosts and owners John and Rosemarie Carollo make you feel at home. The staff is wonderful and welcoming and go out of their way to take care of you. The food is all wonderful- I could not give just one favorite (but the pasta primavera and John's bolognese sauce are staples on my list). Sunday night they have a Sunday to go package- a tray of pasta, a tray of a chicken dish, slad and their yummy garlic knots to go for $50. It easily feeds 6-8. The prices are very reasonable, the food outstanding- Del Arte is a homerun.
