    The 4 of us have been coming to Arrivederci Ristorante once a year from the west valley ever since we found out about it around 6-8 years ago. The food is very good and one in our party especially likes the veal. The service is good along with atmosphere.

The cippiono had plenty of seafood, gnocchis are melt in your mouth awesome and the chicken with mustard and mushroom brown sauce is so tasty the flavor stays with you. The staff makes you feeling you are home. A must go over and over again

    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.

    After spending 10 days touring New Mexico and Arizona, the meal was a welcome reminder of what great, freshly made food is all about, from the appetizer through to dessert. For our entrees, I had the special, halibut, perfectly cooked and very tasty, and my wife was almost licking the plate of her cheese ravioli. Fantastic. Highly recommended.

    Arrivederci sits on the rear of a small mall off Scottsdale Road. Turn on Thunderbird and look for the red Ferrari. When you get inside you will be pleasantly surprised. Every first time guest/couple that we have brought with us has agreed that it is a special place...great, professional service.. surprises should not be taken for granted-share a salad and you will think that you paid for the 2 individual plates...high quality fish served and served w/o it always being "the special"...a toast at the end of your meal..

    We've been looking for a solid performer when it comes to Italian food in the northeast Phoenix/Scottsdale area, and finally found it in Arrivederci. Nice ambiance, although tables are a little too close together. Our waiter, Giovanni was excellent. Attentive and friendly without being obsequious. Veal and pasta dishes were very, very good. Portions were appropriate; prices reasonable; wine list was broad enough to properly accompany menu choices. Definitely going back

    Went here because it was close and could seat a large party of 10 with kids. Service was very good and they will customize any normal dish to make it kid sized. Appreciated that quite a bit. Maybe our standards are higher than most, but I would not put this in the 4-star category for food. Food was good - not great but also not terrible.

  • Good Italian in An Intimate setting
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 4/15/2014
    Arrivederci is a small, family run restaurant. The menu is typically Italian fare with lots of veal and pasta offerings, as well as good appetizers, desserts. The staff are experienced and very friendly. We were offered a complimentary limoncello after dinner - delicious. The veal was delicious and the portions not excessive. The starter was shared - not a problem at this restaurant. The Restaurant was packed when we arrived at 7:30 and almost empty by 8 - an early crowd goes there. However, the service felt slightly rushed. The wine list was very good. We chose a more inexpensive wine and it was excellent although not at all pricey. We appreciate the warm, intimate atmosphere of this place and the authentic food. Prices are as expected.

    Our groups of 4 ate at Arrivederci Ristorante on a Saturday night. The place was packed with people but we had a reservation and were seated right away. The service was excellent and we were served drinks and bread quickly. The menu had a good selection of Italian food. The dishes we had were prepared well and tasted excellent. The only negative was the noise level which prevents me from giving this restaurant 5 stars. I am not sure what they can do to reduce the noise since the place is rather small so tables are close together. Perhaps some sound deadening tiles on the ceiling or some drapes on the walls would help reduce the noise so everyone would not have to shout across the table just to be heard by their party.
