“One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

Consistently good food. Their mussels in marinara is our standard for other restaurants. It is also one of the rare places where you can get pizzas with the option of whole wheat crust and fat free cheese.

“Acceptable in a pinch”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Visited this place on the spur of the moment on a Saturday night and on the basis of the reviews read here expected a lot more. The menu is less than exciting, the wait to place and get the order long, the noise loud, and the food no better than average. Any self-respecting diner could do better.

Hi CJ, I am the owner of Arpeggio Restaurant. I first want to thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. Customer opinion is very important to us and we wanted to respond to you since your experience was unusual and not what we hope for, especially from a first time customer. Often times, we will see a new customer back the next night!
Occasionally, when we are crowded, it does get noisy and the wait is long; this was the case on that particular Saturday night. This is unfortunate, and we would humbly suggest that your overall opinion may have been influenced by these factors.
Arpeggio has been happily serving customers for 16+ years partly because we listen to our customers, and utilize feedback like yours to constantly improve our restaurant and make changes where necessary. We hope that you will visit us again and have a much more positive experience next time!
Mary

“Great variety of food, from pizza to steak and seafood”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

This is a great little restaurant. It is not very big so if you go at prime time you will probably have to wait. You can start our with some mediterranean style appetizers (Humus, Falafel, etc.) but their simple side house salad and soups are also great. They have a large selection of brick oven pizzas which are excellent. One of my favorite dinners is the mixed grill. It is a combination of filet mignon chunks, scallops, and shrimp together with a variety of grilled vegetables. It's BYOB so bring along your favorite bottle of wine and save some money on drinks. If you haven't been there you should definitely give this place a try!

“We go EVERY Friday, like clockwork”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

My wife and I have been routinely dining at Arpeggios on Friday evenings. We are always greeted nicely by the hostess Sherry, and the waitstaff are always on the ball, helpful and attentive. The food is outstanding. In particular we like the Pesto DelMare, the Strawberry Salad (seasonal) and the Warm Goat Cheese Salad. The pizzas are also great. The red lentil soup and creamy crab soup are also top notch. The crab soup has a lot of crab meat in it. The mixed grille is also nice dinner option. Yes, the wait can be over a half hour at times, but the wait is actually hilighted by the availability of warm oven baked garlic knots. For desert, get the banoffi pie!

“Fantastic Lunch!”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

Had a great lunch special and excellent service at Arpeggio's Saturday afternoon. It was busy, but not too busy as the space is small. Attention to detail is on the mark.
