    Food is great. portions a bit smaller than the price, but worth it.. Service is impecable! Room is family style and when busy its VERY cramped.. but that helps the atmosphere... Will definately go back.. the Room is VERY NOISY and hard to chat with your guest.. but that is part of the ambiance and uniqueness of the restaurant.. feels like an old Italian Restaurant you would find back east in older neighborhoods!

    A nice little trip back in time. The restaurant has an "old world "vibe to it. The food was very good. I had the Osso Buco and the meat was fork tender and quite tasty. I am not a mushroom person and I will say the menu was heavy with mushroom laden dishes, so the choices for me were limited. Their rolls were heavenly. Giovanni, the host and I believe owner, was quite freindly and made us feel like we were at their home. We'll be back soon.

    We were vacationing in Scottsdale and used Open Table to search for a nice Italian restaurant...this was it! We enjoyed the meal and the service and would definitely return when in the area. The complimentary lemoncello served at the end of the meal reminded me of how much I enjoyed that in Sorrento.

    Although I would love to rate this restaurant with great reviews, our first dining experience wasn't a good one. We made a reservation and was seated 30 minutes later. They were hosting a VERY large party and was not capable of handling the other tables that evening. They ran out of several recommended items (even ran out of glasses and menu's). The only positive thing about the evening was our waiter. Our food was good, but came back cold. My friends dine at this restaurant often and rave about it all the time. Wish I could say the same. Maybe next time?

    This is our go-to place for special occasions. We were celebrating Father's Day and a birthday. We love Marilyn the waitress. If we owned a restaurant, it would be an exact duplicate of this place! I would be completely satisfied with a glass of wine with their rolls and pesto. But then I would have to sacrifice their homemade ravioli's and their chocolate tiramisu. The limoncello at the end tops off a perfect experience every time, I recommend this restaurant to everyone who will listen.

    What a find!! I moved here from New York City over 20 years ago and haven't found a decent Italian restaurant. I have a son in NY and another in Boston and I can finally take them to a place that I know they will love as soonas they visit. First time in a Phoenix restaurant where a ceasar salad actually had anchovies. BRAVO! There's certainly a good reason why the restauant has been there as long as it has.

    We have gone to Arrivederci for years, and have always had a wonderful meal. Giovanni, one of the owners and the captain is fabulous, always makes everyone feel welcome, and remembers us and our family. I see this in the manner in which he greets others as well. The food is consistently superb, and the atmosphere straight out of Italy. We keep going back, and we recommend it to all our friends, and bring our out of town guests there for a special meal.
