    The restaurant was rather busy when we arrived, and it took a few minutes to get our table. We got water and bread and pesto right away, but we waited a while for someone to take our order. After that, things went smoothly. My husband enjoyed his salmon appetizer, and we both enjoyed our entrees. We felt that most items on the menu were reasonably priced, and we will probably go back.

    This is a nice Italian Restaurant. On our visit it was not crowded. There was not enough wait staff so service was slow. So slow in fact that we left early. food was good, well presented, etc. Questionable return.

    We love this place. We especially go for the sand dabs. There are just a few restaurants in the area that serve this dish and it is prepared perfectly (washed in egg whites with lemon butter and capers )- and generally, I am not a fish eater. You have to ask for it special and hope they have it that day. Try them. You will not be disappointed. All the other fare we have had on the menu was top notch too.

    I was very pleased with my overall dining experience. The food was very good and came prepared as requested. The service staff was a efficient and promptly responded to our requests. It is a very nice, quiet restaurant that is consistent in both quality of food and service. This was my fourth visit to this restaurant. It is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

    We moved to Scottsdale about a year ago and Arrivederci was our first "find" just driving around the neighborhood. We have been there at least 10 times and the food has always been wonderful! And this is coming from someone who would never choose Italian food as their first choice. But I am often the one that suggests we go there. We went for New Years this last time and as usual, from the support staff to the owner, the wine to the food (and everything else you can think of), it was fantastic!

    The food was amazing! My mother who is very picky and likes her lamb well done, received her meal and it was perfect. Giovanni had promised he would make sure the chef made the chops well done and he did not break his promise. My mother was very happy. All of our food was delicious! I would highly recommend Arrivederci to even the most finicky eaters, you will not be disappointed.

    I had an awful experience at this restaurant on Xmas. It was one of only a few restaurants open, so we decided to go. A mistake. The food was extremely overpriced. First, there was no arugula salad available, although it was on the menu. The traditional salad they brought me was horrible, just some leaves with some sort of nasty toasted onions on top at the price of $7.50! A joke...just the worst salad I have ever had. The eggplant and chicken parm meals were okay, but way, way overpriced at almost $20 a piece. Cannoli and tiramisu were the best parts of the meal, as well as the rolls. The server was a bland and listless older woman with zero energy or pizzazz. I won't go back.

    We had a resv. and we were seated within 5 minutes. . The waiter did not appear for ten minutes which we thought was a bit slow, The food was brought fast after order was taken. My husband had the pasta with seafood (clams, mussels and shrimp) it was hot and tasty and he ranks it 4 stars out of five. I had my Italian favorite....Veal Parm. It was OK but nothing special for $25.00. I've had better for much less money at many places. It wasn't bad but totally average. I would not order it again for $ 25.00. Our waiter, Giovani was very pleasant but the service was just average....perhaps because it was quite busy. The place is too crowded with tables. You can hardly walk between them. I don't know how the servers manage.

    Our meals were delicious. However, the service was not great. No one ever checked on how we liked the food until the meal was over. Our water glasses were never refilled. It took forever to get the bill. If we decide to go back, it will most definitely NOT be on a Saturday. Hoping that they would not be so busy on a weekday night.

    We have been going to Arrivederci for years, and have never been disappointed. The food and the pricing is excellent - once again we brought out of town guests to dine with us. The host, Giovanni, makes everyone feel welcome. The service is attentive, but not clinging, the food is outstanding, and the portions generous, but not ridiculously huge. Arrivederci is a must stop location for all lovers of Italian food!

    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

    Very tough to rate - even though we made a reservation on-line and received confirmation, the restaurant was closed upon our arrival. Nothing on their website nor any signage on their building indicated they would be closed for lunch the day after Thanksgiving. This was iur 2nd attempt to each lunch there in a weekday in which we did not have to work.

    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.

    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.
