Did not really plan on going to Arrivederci on Friday, but the place we wanted to go to was closed for lunch. It was a great experience from all of us. The Rigatoni was spiced just right, the Ravioli was creamy, my lamb chops were pretty good. The dessert, particularly the chocolate mousse was smooth and just the right sweetness. The calamari appetizer was quickly finished, crunchy coating. Portions were large enough for leftovers.

Good Italian fare in a pleasant atmosphere on a busy street in the Hillcrest area of San Diego. Black and white photos adorn the walls Seating is a little snug, but the service was excellent, even on a Sunday night. For appetizers, calamari and eggplant are very good. Gnocchi, ravioli, and risotto are light and tasty. Desserts ae exquisite, from tiramisu to sorbet, and creme brulee to cannoli. A well-stocked bar, with large wine list, and outdoor seating available.

Italian food is not my favorite... but I will give a tip that will change your life: Order the Lobster Ravioli in Saffron Sauce. I swear, I fantasize about this dish. Rarely is there one dish I will patronize an establishment for... this is it.

Picked this place because I hadn't been to the Hillcrest area before, and because of Trip Advisor reviews. Well, one for two isn't bad. Enjoyed the Hillcrest area. But the food here is mediocre at best, and the service substandard, even though service personnel kept buzzing by. You can do better.

It was one of the best italian restaurants we've ever eaten. Food and wine/sangria were excellent. A must for visitors in the area of Hillcrest.
