No room for dessert, but perfectly sated and fortified for the weekend. In short, Aria provided everything good Italian food and wine should do for the body & spirit.

However one of the pasta dishes (penne a la vodka) was sub-par and tasteless.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful restaurant for earlyWonderful restaurant for early pre theater dinner. Service excellent and fast with an eye to making the show on time. Delicious food and reasonable prices.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI am a repeated customer.I am a repeated customer. This time, we dined at Aria before the opera. The location of the restaurant is just excellent. Although we made the reservation 10 days in advance, when we walked in, the very first table given to us was right by the entrance. That was not acceptable. The restaurant should do better seating reserved customers.
The table given was on the second floor, which is much quieter than the lower floor. Anyone intending to have a conversation should ask for 2nd floor.
The marinated cannellini bean served with a basket of bread was awesome (as usual).4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThere were two of us so weThere were two of us so we got a fairly private corner table, which made our experience especially nice, since it tends to be noisy. Both the service and the food were excellent! We would return any time we have the chance, and would recommend it heartily!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's was a great pre-concertIt's was a great pre-concert meal experience. We'll be back!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMclassy establishmentI took my fiancee here for her birthday, and we were both extremely pleased. The food is excellent, seafood is fresh, and the waiters are exceptional. A family next to us, however, brought their small children, and all of them wore jeans and t shirts.. Regardless of how rich you are, you should dress nicely if you go here.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA real gem in uptownAria is one of my all-time favorites and one that is a must visit when I am in the Queen City. The Carmelized Gnocchi is out of this world. The service is impeccable and the wine list is one of the best. This was the first time I brought my children and was a little concerned before arrival. But was pleased to see they had a kids menu and the wait staff was very accomodating to my children.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here for dinner on aWent here for dinner on a week night by a recommendation from a friend.

I would go back!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in Charlotte!!My boyfriend and I came to Aria on a Friday night and were so impressed. The service was fantastic and the food was amazing (chicken parm & the ragu dish). The atmosphere to me was romantic; they had live music as well. It was a great experience and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. We had a great time, as did the bachelorette party of 10+ next to us - obviously Aria is able to cater to many different types of groups - more kudos to them. Fabulous restaurant and Eddy is a great waiter!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy New Favorite Restaurant !!My new favorite restaurant. I love Tuscan food and feel like it is often difficult to find.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for my wife's birthday.We went for my wife's birthday. We had never been before but probably should have picked a different weekend. Not only was it the big StPatrick Day weekend, there was also a Pink concert at TW Cable arena. The restaurant was packed. Chris was our server and he did a fabulous job considering how busy it was and how many tables he seemed to have. The bread and beans for dipping were surprisingly delicious. We both ordered the chicken Marsala. While my wife enjoyed hers, we both agreed it was dry and a bit on the bland side. We ordered the sweet potato cheesecake and chocolate Nutella bread pudding for dessert. Both were outstanding and were the redeeming course of the night. Overall, we did enjoy our experience in spite of the craziness.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Glad to haveGreat food. Glad to have a reservation....2 1/2 hour wait on the Saturday night we were there. Fast service. Packed and very loud with fun energy. Not a place to go if you're looking for a quiet, romantic dinner.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were great. The restaurant was very noisy and you have to yell just to talk to people across the table from you. I would not recommend taking a large group just because of the noise level.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed a wonderful dinnerEnjoyed a wonderful dinner with my neice before a show. The food was great, she absolutely loved her Caprese Salad, and the service was fabulous - friendly, welcoming, attentive. She cannot wait to return and bring her entire family.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
