“Awkward Layout, but awesome food & atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Especially great to sit where you can view the kitchen. It's almost like being a a live recording of a food show. They have tones of great things, but my favorite...the chicken & goat cheese flatbread pizza. I go out of my way just to get that pizza to go!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

My dinner at Aria Tuscan Grill was fabulous from beginning to end. I thought dining alone might be awkward, but my waitress was attentive and helpful without being solicitous. My glass of Rompicollo, a blend of red Italian wines, was delightful, as was the fresh, sizable ciabatta roll accompanied by flavorful white beans in olive oil as delicious as the ones I had in a small village outside of Florence, Italy. When I raved about the beans the waitress gave me the ingredients list! My Caesar salad was just right, delicious without being too rich. For my my main dish I chose the sauteed red fish on a bed of steamed fresh spinach and grits like none I'd ever had before in North Carolina--light, creamy, buttery, divine. I'd never had red fish and thoroughly enjoyed it. Because of the generous portions, I had no room for dessert. If I'm ever in Charlotte again I'll definitely return to Aria Tuscan Grill!

“Wonderful meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Great early week meal in uptown Charlotte. We had a wonderfully leisurely meal here. Great, attentive service without hovering over us. Our waiter appeared when needed, made great recommendations ( try the caramelized gnocchi appetizer!) and made the evening even nicer. Appetizers, main courses, drinks, dessert and coffee ran $220, including tip.

Its delicious. Period. Check it out. The bread they serve with the meal comes with beans. Never had it before but was definitely an interesting spread.

“Solid Choice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

I really enjoy this restaurant for lunch. The express lunch really hits the spot--three small (but delicious) courses at a really reasonable price and guaranteed to fit into a lunch hour. Just can't beat that. Also been here for business lunch, and the atmostphere works well for that purpose too.
