Very nice meal. A bit noisy
Very nice meal. A bit noisy even though we were seated in a less occupied corner. Love the atmosphere and the decor. Service somewhat slow in the beginning but was more attentive later in the meal.
It would be beneficial to have more moderate priced entrees-a bit pricey for most dinner entrees. But the fish special-bass was terrific and worth the price.
Will surely dine here again.

I have dined at Arrosto before. This time, I was with three friends, celebrating a special occasion. One of my friends was with me on a previous occasion, but two of them were there for the first time. They were both quite impressed with everything. Our server, Erica, helped make the celebration very enjoyable. She catered to our specific requests and was very knowledgable and extremely pleasant.

Great food and service
This is our second time to this restaurant. Four of us went for my teenage daughters birthday. Very nice, interesting menu with unusual choices. Everything we tried was delicious. The service very attentive and welcoming. The waiters genuinely seemed to be happy and committed to delivering a great experience. Service was quick but timed just right. Appetizers came quickly and the time between for the main meal to arrive was perfect

A Very Nice Italian Restauraunt
Arrosto is located on a residential street on the outskirts of the center of Port Chester, but convenient to get to. The wait staff was professional and efficient. The ocotopus appetizer was grilled to perfection and accompanied by spring themed greens and beans. For the main course we focused on the seafoood specials and were rewarded for our choice. The two soft shell crabs were grilled and medium size, very flavorful, over a creamy risotto with peas. The tile fish was served in a delicious vegetable and broth sauce with no starch, and proved to be a complete main course. The wines offered covered a wide range to taste and cost. The cheese course included Hudson valley cheese.

Nice to have a restaurant open on Monday evenings to meet and greet friends without being rushed. The restaurant is very attractive and the food very good. I especially love the pasta bolognese. Martinis were good too.We have been there before and plan on continuing to go.

We had a great meal after a movie with friends and love that there are app portions so we felt more like experimenting!

A pleasant surprise
We were going to see a show at The Capitol Theatre in Portchester. We wanted to dine before the show in the area. We basically picked Arrosto out of the hat. A very pleasant surprise, excellent food and service. Especially The Arancini, rice balls as an appetizer. They were crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside and no grease at all. We both decided on seafood for our main dish, both were excellent. The seafood was very fresh tasting and the pasta was done perfectly.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
All of our selections were not only delicious, but beautifully presented. Give ourself time everything is made to order, not rushed. The staff waited on us, like we were royalty.

Great dining experience
Except for a couple of minor mistakes the restaurant has established itself as one of the finest in Westchester county!!! Excellent food and superior attentive service.

Father's Day Dinner
Noisy inside, but quiet outside. Very nice restaurant.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been to Arrosto several times now. The food is always amazing and the service is usually consistently good. It can be noisy especially in the back room so it is much nicer to sit outside of possible. Ron the manager is a great guy and always very helpful. I definitely will continue to go to Arrosto!!

My new go to
This restaurant has great food. It is a great place to go to with friends or family. The menu is extensive and upscale. Really delicious and interesting dishes. There is something for everyone. It has a great atmosphere but you can still talk. The wine and beer list are great also.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pleases the whole family
This is the 3rd time my family has dined at Arrosto in the past year. We used to go on Sunday night when there was 1/2 off bottles of wine, but unfortunatley this is no longer the deal. My family always leaves Arrosto satisfied. We would recommend the Eggplant Parmesan, Pappardelle, and Broccoli Rabe Pizza. My uncle always has Sundays at Grandma's, which includes a lot of food if you are hungry.

Great food, iffy service
Ok so I'll keep it simple. My date and I arrived and were seated at an excellent table, and the food itself was largely excellent . But our waiter was the pits. He was late to greet our table, then tried push the sardines appetizer on us. From the moment we didn't take him on it, he was quasi-surly. No joke! We still enjoyed the evening, but this was very much despite our service, which was indifferent at best, and rude at worst. Let go of this waiter! He is just putting in time. The restaurant and cuisine deserve better.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love the lay out, & the food here. Great deal is 1/2 off any bottle of wine night!
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, excellent staff. Will continue to go there on a regular basis.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I made a last minute reservation here for 7 people not knowing anything about the restaurant. our whole party enjoyed it, the food was great, service was wonderful- accommodating all of our requests. we would definitely return.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came here the night before
We came here the night before we got married, so when making the reservation through OpenTable I asked for a romantic table for two. Honestly I did not think they will read my comment. I was pleasantly surprised!
Not only did they give us the best table in the house but they spoiled us all night.
Service was wonderful, food was delicious, the atmosphere was VERY romantic.
This place is special. I would go back there in a heartbeat!

NYC Foodies come to Arrosto
There is such a nice vibe in this restaurant that you can't help but enjoy the evening. The configuration of the restaurant makes for privacy and the ability to talk in a room that's busy and full of life. Excellent food, great atmosphere, and well-mannered staff. Pasta appetizer was cooked to perfection. Managers recommended the evening’s Roast, which was Halibut for 2. Unreal. The owner also came over and help pair some wines for our friend’s entrees. We consider ourselves to be somewhat of Manhattan foodies so we just love coming to Port Chester for this restaurant. Everything was crisp, from the bread to the apps, to the lovely wine glasses, to the pizza…on and on. Simply - phenomenal taste.

My go to place when traveling in this area. Great service and menu. Ample parking.

THE FOOD AND SERVICE IS CONSISTENTL
THE FOOD AND SERVICE IS CONSISTENTLY GOOD. MANAGEMENT HAS A TRAINED EYE AND IT NEVER LEAVES THE BALL.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Definely give it a try!
Great place to go for a drink or dinner. The sparkling water wasn't really sparkling and they served it warm.... But besides that the food and service was great. We ate outside, it's not in the nicest area, but well worth te experience. We both loved our meals and it was a beautiful night out. Would definitely go back and recommend to others!!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dinner - a bit pricey
We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Great service and a modern, fun energy in the restaurant .
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb Food and Service!!!
Superb food and service pretty much sums it up. Our server "Marcelo" did an excellent job in explaining all the specials and some of the intricacies in dishes we asked about. He was attentive, friendly and seemed like a good guy. The manager also stopped by towards the end of our meal and checked in with us. He also seemed very attentive and was very pleasant. Portions are huge and they're tasty. My wife and I each got an appetizer, meals and then desserts. They were nice enough to give us a complimentary dessert because we were there celebrating my wife's birthday. Total with a glass or two of wine you should probably expect to pay around $50-60 per person all in.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food - service - atmosphere - have dined here a few times - never had any negative things to say - only positive!!!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
perfect for a family celebration!
We celebrated a family milestone at Arrosto - the service was excellent, the food was excellent and everyone in our party of 7 really enjoyed themselves....ps- the pork bracciole was amazing!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Neighborhood gem with some qualific
The food was very good. We were 6 in our party and everyone was happy with the quality of the food. But the service lacks professionalism. We had to ask 2 or 3 times for things so that we were often waiting for something or another that we had asked or. ( Parmesan cheese for the pasta, another glass of wine, olive oil for the bread)
It was also very noisy on Saturday night but during the week when we have gone it is much quieter

Great dinner before concert
Arrosto is a warm and welcoming neighborhood gem. We had a fun and delicious dinner before a concert at the Capitol Theater. With 50% off bottles of wine on Wednesdays our wine was an unexpected treat too!
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our fifth visit to Arrosto and it continues to please us in all ways. This time we took advantage of the 50% discount on wine and pizza - excellent pizza and nice wine selection. We spent much less than a usual evening out and had enough left over for another meal at home!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
terrific food but TOO noisy
Great choice for casual / upscale dining. Everything from pizza, hamburgers to excellent fish and italian dishes. Salads and sides terrific and good wine list. Only issue was(on a Saturday night) too noisy with kids at the next table.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious Italian with a modern twist. Best Bolognese sauce I've had in a long time combined with homemade pasta is a winner. Interesting appetizers, great martinis, terrific wine list and fabulous pizza (try sharing for an appetizer).
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great pre-show dinner
We had an early reservation on a Saturday before a show at the Capital Theater. We were seated promptly, and the wine we ordered from the very interesting if slightly top heavy (price wise) wine list arrived right away. The menu is divided between small plates, pizzas, pastas (appetizer or entre portions available), and entres. It is slightly challenging to navigate, but our table of four managed, two ordering multiple small plates, one a pizza (which is enough for two), and one ordering an entre, the veal chop Parmesan. The best any of us had ever tasted! Our waiter managed to bring out the various dishes seamlessly, no one was watching while others were eating. The pizza was interesting and tasty, the pastas and small plates all great!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had dinner with close friends on a Saturday night. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our food, and the portions were generous. The staff were all friendly and professional. While the food was reasonably priced for the excellent quality, we thought the wine list was limited, with very few selections under $50. Our only other complaint was that the restaurant was very noisy on a busy weekend night. We would happily go back for the food, but not on a weekend night.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a delicious dinner with my parents and three kids. From
ages 7 to 77 everyone had a great meal. The pizzas
were delicious. We also got the grilled octopus app- so yummy!
And I got the halibut - cooked perfectly. My daughter had the
Spaghetti and meatballs - a half portion was plenty for a 10 it old.
She for the Nutella gelato (housemade) that was amazing. We will def

Great Italian food in Port Chester
Really nice restaurant, easy to get to, ample parking next door, delicious food, great service. Homemade pasta, delicious meatballs. This is a large open restaurant with the a great smell. Spacious and comfortable. Great tables outside with heaters if needed. Came on a Tuesday and had a nice few hours. I will definitely come again.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great pizza and meat dishes
Pizza was great (including the crust). Grilled lamb chops were very tasty. Pasta dish was just okay. Service was good, except you had to ask for the fresh pepper every time, instead of the server just bringing it automatically once a dish is served.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unbelievable food and very good portions.Staff was great and drinks we're very good.

City Beat in Portchester
Impressive space and well staffed. Competent Kitchen cranking out well prepared contemporary Italian/American food. Would definitely go back and look forward to the next visit.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were a group of five on a return trip to Arrosto. The food is wonderful. This time our table tested the Polenta Fries-- really yummy with great dipping sauce. We all had pasta -- the portions are just the right amount. I had the Pappardelle with a Braised Lamb Ragu---- so good!!!!!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very tasty food in a nice atmospher
The smell of the italian resturant hits you when you walk inside is a true tell that food is going to hit the spot.
I was very impressed with the ambiance as my wife and I were escorted to the table.
Staff was very friendly and prompt for a saturday night crowd.
The food is very tasty and portions are perfect. :)
I would definitely return with friends and BYOB.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to Arrosto on
We have been to Arrosto on numerous occasions. The food is always very good and we think reasonably priced. The only negatives I have with it is the service is sometimes slow - the table next to us didn't receive their side order until after they were done with their entree - and I'm not sure how knowledgable the staff is on certain items. For example, my fiance wanted a glass of sherry and was told they didn't have any but yet when looking at the after dinner drinks menu - we saw a sherry listed. Other than that - we always enjoy our dinners at Arrosto and would go back again

pre-Capital dinner spot
Went here for dinner before heading to the Capital theater for a show. Great spot for some good italian food and wine( especially w/ a group)
We have previously gone to some restaurants in PC that are closer to the theater, but they were too crowded and loud. This was a nice change of pace.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
It is a very up beat restaurant and feels good to eat delicious food there.

New in town
Although this is a fairly new Restaurant, the food and ambience is worth going for. Unfortunately, the wait service diesnt seem very experienced which should be worrisome for the restaurant. The owner( Hal?) is an absolute gem , so i personally hope he takes tge critique about the servers to heart.
