    This was my third visit. Two for lunch, last for dinner. Lunches were delicious with fantastic pizza. Dinner started off with the hostess telling up we could not be seated until our reservation time at 715. It was 708. Food was good, but not great. Service was very spotty. Waiter was attentive, but long lags in time between courses. The bread was delivered with appetizers after a 10 minute wait. We sat outside on a lovely august night

    We have eaten here before and thought the food was amazing. We returned with some friends and we were a little disappointed. Maybe it was a different chef or maybe it was what we ordered. The chicken parm could be described as bland. The penne Sofia was similarly on the bland side. The lobster ravioli in a blush sauce was a special and it was excellent. Stick with the specials. The inside restaurant is very noisy. We were sitting in the middle of the restaurant and this may be why it seemed so noisy. Ask for a table on the side. Outside dining seems much quieter as well. The service was excellent. Our water was always refilled without asking. Overall a lovely setting for a BYOB if you get a good food night.

    4 dined.Great bruschetta brought to the table.Best beet salad I have ever had.Two diners loved the salmon - perfectly cooked and flavored. 1 diner had the Vitello Rolattini and found it very tender and flavorful. Great service in this busy BYOB. But,MAJOR problem with front desk:we arrived NINE minutes before our reservation time.Several tables were open. Hostess would not seat us until right at our res time - we asked why-she said cause "the kitchen is so small" PLEASE! So we had to wait on a bench instead of sitting at our table enjoying a glass of wine. Really set the evening off wrong. Hope it does not happen again.

    We were looking forward to finding another good byob in the area and were disappointed with Arugula. The menu selection was good and the prices reasonable but the food was nothing special. The salads were good but the Penne a la Vodka was very salty as were the side of potatoes that came with over done vegetables. The chicken parm chicken patty was tough and way over pounded. It's a pretty restaurant with a nice patio but the food needs work!

    I went there for dinner with my mother. She got the salmon and I got chicken. Both were cooked and seasoned well. We also got an eggplant appetizer which was good as well. We got fresh bruchetta at the beginning of our meal which was a nice and refreshing surprise. I love that it's BYOB and their gelato was great as well. I recommend this place and will most likely return. Great environment and fresh food.

    Service was welcoming and attentive. Well balanced menu with some interesting selections, though nothing was terribly adventurous. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal overall (quality, presentation, flavor, etc.), especially those that had the risotto! Almond-based desserts were outstanding!! Classy, yet casual atmosphere. I could probably bring my 4yo for an early evening dinner. I'll likely dine again some time and would recommend to others. A great go-to BYOB for the area!

    We dined on a Monday evening during a downpour. They had a good crowd for a Monday. Our waiter seemed distracted - he appeared to have tables scattered about the restaurant. He was pleasant, if a tad soft-spoken. We threw him a curve by asking for a carafe to let our bottle of pinot breathe, but he persevered and found something suitable, battling patiently with the overly brittle cork, and straining out the errant pieces. (Note to management: proper wine carafes and strainers should be de rigueur for an upscale BYOB, and your staff should not be thrown by such a request.) He was slow to return to the table to take our order, but I blame geography for that. (continued)

    Took a large group of friends. Good food, offering both familiar and inventive choices. Attentive service. I had the salad special -- a grain salad with cucumbers and tomatoes ( real tomatoes, with actual flavor and everything ) that was very good, and then their risotto with mushrooms, also excellent. Heard no complaints from the others in the group. Plus, as a BYOB, everyone got a full dining experience for under $40. Very enjoyable.

    Arugula was adorable! Had great ambiance and the service was wonderful. The veal was only okay and the linguine with clams and shrimp (they ran out of mussels) was "good." Will go back but may try an Italian staple next time.

    Arugula is a very nice looking restaurant with a nice, accommodating staff. Very loud dining room with a serious upgrade in air conditioning needed. All Salads were excellent as was the grilled octopus. Entrees need work. Sent one back out of our group of 10. I think it should improve with time. Veal Milanese was very bland and not crispy as the Milanese should be. Pasta dishes seemed better than meats. Has potential and outside seating looks good.

    4 in our party. Very good food. We ordered several appetizers, 4 salads and 4 entrees. After a somewhat long wait, the appetizers arrived at the same time the salads were served. Given the small size of the dining table, not a good idea. Would have preferred the apps came first; did not think to mention this, since the is the usual sequence at most restaurants. Noise level was almost unbearable! In the same dining room (although not completely full) was a table of 14-18 (?) people and it made for an uncomfortable noise level. If we return to Arugula we will only book a table if there is not a large table party scheduled at the same time as our reservation.
