    Arrosto's is a PC Gem, convenient to get to and plenty of parking which can be an issue at other Rstr's in PC. Food is great, service terrific and not too expensive.

  • Good, but not Great...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    Very good atmosphere, with a pretty diverse menu. The food was good for the most part (very good calamari), but portion size was small. Also, the waiting staff was very impersonal and maybe made all of 3 trips to the table: to take drink order, to take food order, and deliver the check. For a place that demands a relatively high price for their food/service, I just expected more from the experience...

    We had dinner there on Saturday night, and it was a very good choice. We started with a margherita pizza as an appetizer, which was just delicious. Two of us had Veal chops, I had shrimp scampi and my friend had a pasta primavera. We had coffee and gelato for dessert to end our meal. Everything was just right. The service was the best, the staff was the friendliest and we will return...

    liked the food, but it was too noisy. Also, when I arrived at the restaruant they DID NOT have my open table reservation. Something was not right. They did seat us, but I had to show them my phone in order to get a decent table. They wanted to seat us at a bar table. Not happy about that. My husband's meal came out 10 minutes after everyone else was served.

    My husband asked for a glass of pinot Grigio, presumably the house wine. And ordered a second glass. When the bill came, we saw it was $12 per glass. Didn't check the list, but seems steep to me. Calamari so- so. Liked the salmon.

    Tables are spaced well so too had energy but not so tight that it's too loud and squished. Reasonably priced and very big portions. An entree could be easily split. Fun place to come with crowd and share.

    Our party consisted of 5 people celebrating a birthday. Four of us really enjoyed out meals but the one who ordered beef was disappointed because the meat was tough. It looked beautiful but contained a lot of gristle -- I must add that the waiter did not charge us which was nice. We also found we had to search for people to bring items which should have been provided, e.g., requested milk for tea, bread, etc. The waiter was never available or visible.

    The food was outstanding. I had the Octopus appetizer and the pancetta pizza. They were excellent. The combination of flavors on the pizza was so flavorful. Chicken Scarpiello was one of the best I ever had. Very tender. My girlfriend had the Osso Bucco which was very good and fork tender. I will definitely be back. Great service and excellent food.

    Not as good as it has been in the past. Linguini with clam sauce tasted like canned clams & too much garlic. Rigatoni with trumpet mushrooms and cauliflower lost a little in the execution. Polenta fries are still good.

  • 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

    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.
