    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.

    Restaurant has provides excellent service and food. Staff is accommodating without hovering and food was served hot in a timely manner. Only negative is that tables are too close together, especially tables for two and the noise was high.

    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.

    Even though my son likes their gnocchi, my husband and I have a difficult time finding things we enjoy on their menu. It would probably be a good idea to try upadating their menu and/or items. Their caprese is less than ok and their soup was terribly salty. My husband said that his chicken dish was also very salty. They were also understaffed with 1 bus and 2 servers for a fairly busy evening. No sign of the owners (which was unusual).

    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!

    I was sooo looking forward to that nice, warm fresh herby bread roll...it came, but not so fresh or warm. meh. Not being overly famished, I ordered the cheese ravioli with arrabbiata (spicy) sauce. Flavorful, yes, but not spicy. The homemade ravioli were large & flavorful, though. The veal carciofi w/lemon caper sauce was good, but not great; sauce was not lemony at all; the veal was cooked to tender, but again, meh. We have seen our waiter when we've been there on previous visits. He wasn't over friendly but did answer our questions, took our order, brought our drinks then went missing. Until of course, it was time to bring the bill. If this had been our first visit, it would be our last. Still, it may be a while before we return.
