  • Disappointingly Inconsistent
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/7/2014
    We've been here several times since it opened. Italian is a great "go to" cuisine, Arrosto is around the corner from us and the decor is great. We wish we could say we love the place. But the service and food has been inconsistent-sadly more often bad than good. This time, there was too much dressing on otherwise tasty salads. We asked the busgirl to have them replaced with salads with less dressing. After too long a delay we called the waiter over-he said the bus girl didn't speak English so didn't understand the request and told him we just didn't like the salad. A good waiter would have come by the table as soon as he heard that to check on us. The pizza crust was soggy and the price for food is much too high for the quality.

    Warm and friendly greeting upon our arrival; very attentive, and professional staff; casual and relaxed, but definitely a step above your typical Italian restaurant; husband raved about pappardelle with lamb ragu; Margherita pizza was excellent; very nice wine selection; and a warm peach cobbler with just the right amount of crumble and a scoop of vanilla gelato (yum!). Will definitely be back with friends and try other dishes.

    Confusion as to who had our table. 15 minutes before anyone came to our table, only after we asked could we see our waiter. Didn't come to table when food was presented to ask if we needed anything i.e, pepper, cheese. Management/hostess should had made clear at time of sitting who was responsible for out table. Food was absolutely delicious. Out compliments to the chef. When service is bad its ruins the whole dining experience

    3 owners at least over the years and have me very gotten a bad meal here. Started with their brick oven pizza and some fried calamari. Both fantastic. I had the gnocchi with a mushroom sauce. Excellent. Surprised we were able to get reservations sAme day on a Saturday night. Big place. Not full yet service was a bit slow.

    Arrosto was very disappointing. Menu is limited with few choices of entrees. We were never given a wine list or asked if we wanted to order wine with our dinner. We were a party of 6. 5 entrees came out, the sixth (mine) was forgotten. I told the waiter, he apologized. Apparently the order was never given to the kitchen. Waited at least 10-15 minutes while the rest of the party ate their dinner, then the wrong entree was brought to me! I told the waiter what I ordered. He finally got it right. Of course everyone else in the party had finished before I even was served my dinner. The waiter did not charge me for my dinner.

    We picked Arrosto for my husbands birthday because it has nice menu choices. We did not want fussy, we wanted good Italian food. We have been there many times and usually excellent. Last night however was a bit of an off might. I'm thinking maybe it was a shift change or new wait staff. They were not on their game!!however, I will go again as we like the atmosphere and food.

    We had dinner at Arrosto with our 3 kids ages 14, 12 and 7 Saturday night and were seated at a table next to the waiter station where they had to enter meals on the computer. The waiters were constantly knocking into my daughter's chair. My husband asked the hostess to move us and she was very rude and told him there was nothing else at that time. There were 5 other tables she could have moved us to in that area and Two other tables remained open the entire time. The food and service were ok but I would not have dinner there again.

    The noise level Saturday night was beyond anything reasonable. It was impossible to even hear across our own table and it was actually a relief to step outside. This has not been the case on our previous visits. Although the food is consistently good, the overall experience this time was enough to keep us away.

    We chose Arrosto for an early Mother's Day dinner because the food is always wonderful. We loved every savory mouthful from the Arancini and pizzette appetizers to our incredibly delicious entrees. Our only problem was the noise level and type of music being played on a Sunday afternoon in an Italian restaurant: hard rock was not what we expected. We asked our waiter if he could do something about it. The volume was lowered but the music continued and did not lend itself to the ambience Arrosto creates.

    We are fans of the pretty dining room and atmosphere. On Friday, the restaurant was not as crowded as it usually is... so we were taken back to have a cranky waiter who seemed put out by our desire to order wine and food. The restaurant is usually much better. The food was delicious- spring pizza, veal, pastas. but the ornery service really diminished the night. Plus we had to wait forever for the check, so we were all desperate to escape by the time we left. Disappointing.

    Got off to a bad start with no one attending to us for a good 15 minutes after we arrived. I finally asked the hostess who our waiter was and could she send him/her to our table. She apologized and the rest of the evening was smooth sailing, including a complemented after dinner lemoncello. My Halibut was superb served with an earthy, caper and pepper ladened Livornese sauce. This was all preceded by a Malfadine pasta done to al dente perfection in a homemade sausage and broccoli rabe white sauce. The Amarone that accompanied it all was indeed the perfect companion wine.

    We dined Saturday night with 2 other couples. Our reservation was for 7PM, the host allowed us to indulge in a drink at the bar and then moved us to our seat. We had a great round banquet booth that accomodated us all and was private and gave us all the opportunity to see one another which was enjoyable. Everyone was engaged in coversation the entire night. The appetizers and entrees were incredible. We love Freebird Chicken and were so excited to see that you have it on your menu. Service was outstanding. Lots of attention to detail. We had a great time and the prices are extremely reasonable. A great night out. Would recommend and plan on returning again very soon.

    It's not cheap by any stretch but worth the price. The service can range from excellent to lackluster at times. I have been there several times over the past few years and enjoyed my visits. When the restaurant is busy, the service can suffer. One tip: do not go to the bar. The bartenders are not good people. Last time I Was there, the bartender assumed a $4 tip of my bill. My bill was $16 which I paid for with a $20. The bartender made change and proceeded to deposit the $4 difference into his tip jar. Had I not been rushing to get to my table, I would have made an effort to have a conversation with him on how that practice might come back to haunt him. Save your money, order drinks from your waiter at the table.

    While the food and service were good, the loud group in the bar area made it almost impossible to hold a conversation. The hostess said it was planned that way. The group was having a reception in the bar and then heading to a private room for dinner. We asked to be seated on the other side of the restaurant to be as far away from the noise as possible and were told that wasn't possible. It was left empty the whole night. We won't be back.

    Really enjoyed our first time here. From the friendly greeting at the door to our server, Marcello, (& all the waitstaff) service was perfect. I love a good bread basket, & Arrosto's included a variety. I never miss a chance to order grilled octopus when it's on a menu & this generous version was great! The pasta with sausage & broccoli rabe was a twist on a classic, & the shell steak rivaled any I've had before. Will definitely return!

    We were in for my wife's birthday and had a great time. There was a small wait at the bar which on a busy Saturday is to be expected. Then we were seated in the private room. I'm. It sure if that was on purpose or because you were full. In either case it worked out wonderfully. The noise level was much lower and the space let us all be conversant and relaxed. The service was also very good. Thank you so much.
