This is a hidden gem! Nice ambiance and great food. The menu is varied. I had the pasts, excellent sauce. Meatballs were homemade and the bread was outstanding. Others in my group had the orange roughy special which was also very good.Would definitely go back.

Arrivederci is an excellent,
Arrivederci is an excellent, upscale Italian restaurant. This is our second visit, and my wife and I will certainly return whenever we're in Scottsdale for baseball spring training. The in-house spumoni is the best we've ever tasted.

Why bother to have a reservation
Why bother to have a reservation when they serve people in order through the door...waited 20 minutes
Even with reservation......taking four tops over two tops......not so good

Tasty, solid Italian quality
Solid, genuinie Italian food served by Italians. Salads weren't swimming in dressing; the dishes are traditional fare but quality and flavors far rise above that of other everyday restaurants. This local gem clearly puts its passion into the food they offer. Don't let the strip mall location fool you!

Arrivederci is a true neighborhood
Arrivederci is a true neighborhood gem. It is wise to make reservations during the weekend. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The wine list is very good and the food delicious. We love the place and go often. The ambiance is lively and fun.

Great local place for Italian food. Seemed like the local spot... not a trendy super upscale Scottsdale place, good food, old school. Definitely would come back.

Like an old friend
Because I live almost three hours away, I don't often have the opportunity of dining at Arrivederci. But I can guarantee you, I will go there whenever I'm in the Scottsdale area. I simply wouldn't miss it. Whether with friends or by myself, I am very comfortable there. It's like one of those old friendships where one can pick up on it instantly no matter how long you've been apart.
The food is fabulous, and the only problem is trying to decide what you want to eat from all of the wonderful choices. I especially love the lobster stuffed ravioli, and it's very hard not to order it every time. When I've varied, however, I'm never disappointed in whatever else I've gotten.

Everything from the warm bread to the amazing entrees was absolutely wonderful. Giovanni was friendly, made us feel like we had been going there for years, We will be back.

Great food and service. We returned 2 days later and the host remembered us!
6/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
the little "extra's" were a treat - the after dinner drink, the birthday cake and candle.....Very nice touches! This was our first time at your restaurant and it certaily will NOT be the last! A great place to bring out-of-town guests who love great food and wine!
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Made reservations. Service was prompt. Special menu-so food choices were limited. Food was very well seasoned, very tastey. I liked the hostess. Free lemoncello with entree (good).
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Visited the restaurant for our Anniversary on a friends recommendation. The friend is still a friend. The service and knowledge of the waiter was excellant. I would return and recommend this establishment to anyone for just dinning or a special occassion.
6/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
I am a foodie in training and although Italian is not generally near the top of my list, this restaurant may just change my mind! This was my first visit and will not be my last...great first impression!

We were unable to keep our resevation so we went by the restaurant on our way back to Tucson and cancelled the reservation with the owner Giovani.
We love Arrivederci and will eat there whenever in Phoenix but could not this time.

After having italian food in MA most of our lives, we missed it when we moved to AZ. For my moms 50th, I wanted to find a perfect REAL italian restaurant. I luckily found Arrivederci Ristorante and im so thankful I did. My mother and I had such a spectacular time. The staff made her night so special and I could not have picked a better place to go. From the wine to the dessert everything was amazing. We will be back and we have told all of our friends how amazing it is!

An Enjoyable Evening
Food was very good; service was good despite waitress having eight tables or more to handle. House wine excellent.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been visiting this little gem for many years. The service and food are always consistently good with moderate prices.

Giuseppe is a Pro
My wife and I went to Arrivederci on a Monday night, and it was nearly deserted. Giuseppe himself served us and was very attentive. Food was great, as usual. Everything was perfect.

Italians In the Kitchen
Arrivederci's food reminds me of the food that came out of the family's kitchens of my youth. The sauces which make or break most Italian dishes are cooked to perfection. The menu choice is varied and most everyone will find some wonderful selection to satisfy their Italian craving. The entrees are flavorful and delicately cooked. The wine list is extensive and you must save room for dessert.
The ambiance is that of a cosmopolitan, intimate, neighborhood café. The service is friendly and attentive The size of the restaurant lends itself to smaller parties but a side room can accommodate a larger group. A complimentary Lemoncello shot tops off what for me has always been a lovely meal and a relaxed dining experience. The cost is reasonable.

We really enjoyed our meal and the staff. Great neighborhood spot. Feels more authentic Italian than most.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been going to Arrivederci Ristorante for many years.. Birthdays, anniversaries, and just for a place to go on a quiet weekend. All this time same staff, same chef, same great food and ambiance. You may not speak Italian, but after a couple of visits you'll
feel like you can.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love to dine here and we always enjoy the food, ambiance and service.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The ambience was good, service good however the food was nothing notable. The salmon was fair and the sauce had little taste. My wife had the chicken cordon blu which was dry but had good taste.

The servers were very attentive and unobtrusive. The food was well prepared and tasty. The only problem was the desert gelato, which was frozen so hard we had to cut it with a knife.

This was the first time we have gone to this restaurant. The food was very tasty. Service was a little so, but it was a busy Friday night. We will definitely be back.

Great and Fast Service. Food very good, but not that "Great" food response. There are compariable other Italian Resturants in the same area.

An old favorite- still very good
A solid neighborhood Italian restaurant that was a family favorite when we lived closer. We were lucky enough to have Giovanni as our waiter. We had wonderful service and enjoyed some fabulous veal dishes. We did mention that we were celebrating a birthday on open table, but it was not addressed in any way by the restaurant.

Family in from Italy
It was our first visit and it will not be our last. The food was fresh and hot from the first bite to the last. The portion size is generous. I can easily picture this family restaurant in a small Italian town. As we were dining you could tell that many people were regulars. When the couple at the table next to us sat down they simply told the waiter that they would have the usual. They have a nice wine list and the prices are very reasonable. After the meal the waiter brought us some lemon chello (sp)which was a nice surprise
