When you are looking for real quality, not just for a special evening this is it in Winter Haven. Service and food is always very good.

The menu has something for everyone and the specials are outstanding.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the first time myThis was the first time my wife Julie and I have eaten at Arabellas Italian Ristaronte. It was for her birthday dinner and I wanted to take her somewhere nice without having to drive to Orlando or Tampa. The decor was very romantic and pleasant. I liked the way they incorporated some of the original building, i.e., the brick walls, into the current design. The food was excellent. The courses were timed perfectly, as our waiter Mike, was very attentive throughout our dinning experience. He was very knowledgeable about the food and was eager to make suggestions in response to my questions, allowing myself and Julie, to make choices that we were very pleased with for both appetizers and entrees.

Nothing really comparable in Winterhaven.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerMy wife and I enjoyed her birthday celebration with a last minute decision to try Arabellas. We had explored downtown Winter Haven and found this wonderful location hoping to enjoy a special occasion. It was a wonderful choice and she was extremely pleased with my selection and the entire event.
The food was wonderful and prepared with extreme attention to detail. Preparation and presentation was subperb. Service was excellent, attentive but not overbearing. The ambiance and decor simply added to our pleasure.
The only deficiency was that the table-side preparation of our entree was done in a location other than table-side. We would have enjoyed to watch the entire preparation at our table. Despite this, the meal and evening was gre3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I have beenMy husband and I have been wanting to go to this restaurant since we moved to Winter Haven 4 years ago and just never got around to it.
