My family & I used to frequent this place when we lived in Charlotte, and after returning 5 years later, it has only gotten better. Buonissimo! Che bravo!!! Don't even think about it, just go. I promise, you won't be sorry. :) Thank you for years of excellence, Arooji's! What a treat.

Great food, great wine, great
Great food, great wine, great wait staff. Almost felt like I was back in Italy without the bread charge. They have smaller plates if you don't want leftovers.

First time to the SouthPark location. Service was a little slow to start, but once our server came around, we had just the right amount of attention. The complimentary bean dip and hot bread were delicious! So much so, we asked for more and got a second serving. We each ordered a salad...the Caprese and the Cuore Sano - both so full of flavor. We ordered the Arooji's Pizza to share...excellent flavors and so much like the real Italian pizza we had in Rome. A nice red wine completed a great meal. Will definitely visit again.

Truly a neighborhood gem!
We LOVE the hospitality, the food we ordered, the wonderful people who work there and become your "new best friends". We just moved to Southpark in Charlotte & Arooji's is a "no-brainer". Sat with our doggies on their lovely patio with fish ponds (our Jack Russell was fascinated by the fish so we had to keep him on a tight leash, no problem. Look forward to going back again soon!

Good Food, Good Atmosphere
My husband and I met another couple there for dinner. I like that's it's in the general SouthPark area, but not the congested part of South Park. I wasn't super crowded at first. We got there about 7 on a Saturday evening, got a table outside, and an hour later every table outside and most of the inside was full. Service did get a little slower during this time, however the waiter, Evan was polite enough to tell us they just got slammed. Which we appreciated. But the food was great and the outdoor dining was great also, so we didn't mind the slower service. My husband said his Seabass was cooked a tadbit too long, but it was edible and seasoned good. Overall I'd give it a 8.5. I would recommend it and would definitely go there again.

Excellent dining experience
The owner and staff go out of the way to make you feel like family. I have taken numerous parties to this restaurant and have yet to be disappointed. The owner went the extra mile when i had one of my executive managers in to insure our dining experience was superb. The wine list is very good and the food phenemonal. I heartily recommend this restaurant for anyone that loves Italian cuisine.

A neighborhood gem!
This is a charming family owned restaurant with a lovely staff, good Italian food & wine list and a small, cozy patio area with a fish pond which is lovely to sit and dine in. They are dog friendly and we always enjoy our time there.

Great food--we ordered the eggplant parmesan and the salmon, both of which are among our favorite dishes anywhere.

Overall the food was very good. The only suggestions that I would give is to improve the timing of the service. Started off very good and then got slower and slower. However, the wait staff was very friendly and made you feel welcome.

The food was exceptional as was the ambiance. The service however was very slow, much like they do in restaurants in Europe. They allow you to take your time and don't rush you. If you want the experience of fine European dining I highly recommend Arooji's.
