    Have been a number of times. Our favorite Italian restaurant. This time services was unusually slow (took about an hour to get entree), however there was a full house. Also, it took a good 15 minutes for server to get back with credit card slips. Hopefully this was one time.

    This is our go-to place for special occasions. We were celebrating Father's Day and a birthday. We love Marilyn the waitress. If we owned a restaurant, it would be an exact duplicate of this place! I would be completely satisfied with a glass of wine with their rolls and pesto. But then I would have to sacrifice their homemade ravioli's and their chocolate tiramisu. The limoncello at the end tops off a perfect experience every time, I recommend this restaurant to everyone who will listen.

    What a find!! I moved here from New York City over 20 years ago and haven't found a decent Italian restaurant. I have a son in NY and another in Boston and I can finally take them to a place that I know they will love as soonas they visit. First time in a Phoenix restaurant where a ceasar salad actually had anchovies. BRAVO! There's certainly a good reason why the restauant has been there as long as it has.

    Visited this restaurant while on business in Phoenix. Took a group of customers who all enjoyed it immensely. Great authentic Italian cuisine. Home made pesto sauce served with warm bread. Each of us had different dishes that all looked and tasted home made.. Felt like mom was working in e kitchen.

The Vodka sauce, as advertised, was excellent though very rich and filling. It was a very pleasant experience for all.

    We have gone to Arrivederci for years, and have always had a wonderful meal. Giovanni, one of the owners and the captain is fabulous, always makes everyone feel welcome, and remembers us and our family. I see this in the manner in which he greets others as well. The food is consistently superb, and the atmosphere straight out of Italy. We keep going back, and we recommend it to all our friends, and bring our out of town guests there for a special meal.

    The restaurant was busy with Valentine's Day diners when we arrived at 7:00 PM. Our table was ready as requested on Open Table. We always appreciate the attentive service we receive from Giovanni. The food is freshly prepared and served hot. The bread and special pesto dipping sauce is a nice feature. We like the Italian lemon cordial which is served to everyone after dinner. We heartily recommend Arrivederci.

    First time visit was Valentine's Day. Maybe not the best time to visit. Limited menu items (possibly because of Valentine's)and the tables were crammed together. Wait staff was stressed and distracted. I'm not sure our waiter ever look at us. He was always looking to see where the hostess was seating the next patrons.

    This is a wonderful little restaurant with awesome authentic food and in my opinion happy and friendly (yet very busy) wait staff. The chef specials are always fabulous and you can never go wrong with asking either Giovanni or Eddie for a suggestion. I am always delighted with everything I eat or drink here. There is usually an Italian celebrity or socialite hanging out somewhere in the restaurant too, so keep your eyes open but remember to be respectful.

    The two people we took to dinner here had dined previously but it had been several years. Two people in our party had Lobster Ravioli, both really liked it. The other two ordered Pasta dishes and had to order chicken extra. The guest said it was just okay. I tasted his as well as mine and both tasted like Ragu. Overall, felt meals were over-priced and service was fair and felt very rushed.

    "Fabulous"~ the food and service were both excellent. I often travel to Scottsdale to visit my daughter who goes to ASU and this neighborhood gem that I found on my last night in town was a breath of fresh air after spending a week eating in the trendy overpriced and over-decorated restaurants whose food all tastes the same. The lobster ravioli is a must and the homemade lemoncello at the end of the meal was a pleasant surprise. I wouldn’t order the veal again but the pastas, salads, and soups were all wonderful~

    We hadn't dined there for quite awhile, but chose it because it's close to home & a good spot to celebrate birthdays w/ the family. Plus we've know Giovanni for years. It was definitely birthday night, because every table (4 or 5 - a slow night) sang at a different time. The food was better than we remembered. The calamari was outstanding -served in a broth instead of the usual fried. Every one of us enjoyed our meal. After dinner, a plate with Tiramisu arrived w/ a candle for my birthday. And of course, dessert was topped off w/ Limoncello. We'll definitely be back w/ our friends, since they haven't been there in awhile either.
