    Great selection of Italian cuisine, and attentive staff. The restaurant is located in a strip shopping center. Once inside however, it exudes the atmosphere where Italian food can be enjoyed. I had the Osso Buco, which was a well prepared and filling meal. They have a respectable, reasonably priced wine list. This was a very enjoyable dining experience.

    What a fabulous meal. We have been coming to Scottsdale for 20 years and just discovered this restaurant. Great food, nice atmosphere, fun wait staff. Vodka sauce was excellent. Lobster ravioli was to die for. Can't wait to go back. Limoncello was superb.

    We moved to Scottsdale and have been looking for a " Italian go to place" near our house. We tried two small neighborhood locations near Arrivederci they both turned out to be more of a show than a meal. The evenings was dominated by an overbearing owner and a waiter that actually was critical of what we ordered!. On the other hand Arrivederci was none of that stuff. It was great and we are going back.

    The ratings for this restaurant had me expecting much more. The food was good, the red snapper I had was very nice, not quite 5 star. My wife had gnocchi with shrimp, and while the home made gnocchi were great, the shrimp were slightly over cooked and a bit on the chewy side. The service was very good and attentive. Now that we've been there, we might go back on our next Phoenix visit but with a bit lower expectations.

    Found on Open Table while traveling and this is one of the best in PHX. When I arrived @ 6pm things were quiet, but by 6:30 the place was packed so I recommend making reservations. Limited wine list, but excellent choices. Salad was large and could be shared. Service was attentive and outstanding. My needs were taken care of without being over bearing. Italian's are known for their sauces and the one I had was excellent. The veal was tender and the cheese sauce was a great combination. I'm disappointed that I don't have time to return for a 2nd meal before I leave.

    truly a neighborhood GEM with consistently excellent service and well prepared meal. I enjoyed the Salmon and my husband had a pasta dish with sea food, this was his second time ordering this so it must of been excellent. We were with another couple and they ordered the same combination of dinners, equally enjoyed the food. Servings were not "tiny"-no room for any dessert. The owner offered attentive but not overbearing service, it was relaxed and did not feel rushed ( I think we left when we realized we were the only table left and they were resetting table for the next day. Crusty warm individual bread for each and we were asked if we wished for more! The shot of a lemon liqueur (complimentary) at the end of the meal.

    And possibly one of my favorite all-around restaurants. Every time I go, I order the same (cannelloni di carne) because it is delicious! The service, the staff, the environment, the food - all wonderful. And the prices are reasonable. It's rare that I write such a glowing review, but every person I take to try loves it.

    You are greeted by the staff as if you are part of a loving family. If you've been there before, they remember your name and where you like to sit. The food is outstanding and the menu choices cover anything Italian that you might want. Reservations are helpful since this is a small restaurant and tends to fill up on weekends.
