A perfect evening. Sitting right at the river, beautiful lighting and warmth from the tower heaters and listening to a wonderful concert from across the river at The Levitt.

We were seated on time and the ambiance is lovely. However, they did not have my first choice (it seems they haven't had it all summer altho it remains on the menu). I ordered the halibut, which was the special. I ate half of it which tasted fine, but the next bite was really fishy and tasted awful. I told the waiter and the manager and they couldn't have cared less. Won't be returning anytime soon. Too bad because it is such a pretty place

Not good. Beautiful setting, but right from the beginning the service was slow, inattentive, & the food just wasn’t plated nicely and the flavors were lacking. I was far from impressed & probably won’t go back.

Nice setting - but zero service. You cannot fill tables if you do not have proper service. The food is okay but will probably not go back due to service issues.

Setting is so nice and one of the few water view restaurants in the area. The service was fair. The salad that was supposed to be split was not and the salad that was not supposed to be split was. Took two drink orders and ignored the guest with an empty glass (?) --we had summon the server back. The food is a solid B+ but not excellent. The ambiance makes up for Arrezzo's service and food inadequacies. We keep going back for the nice alfresco, river-side dining.

Went here to celebrate my 5 year anniversary and there was no recognition of it although it was listed in my reservation. We started off our meal with 2 cocktails which were both good. Next we ordered a beef carpaccio, calamari, and insalata di arezzo. The beef carpaccio was over dressed so it made the meat soggy. For entrees we ordered 2 glasses of wine, saltimbocca alla romana, and the lamb chop dish. My boyfriend enjoyed his lamb chop, but my dish was not anything special. The mashed potatoes on both our plates were cold. For dessert we ordered the tiramisu and the lava cake which were both delicious and definitely the best part of the meal. Both of us work in the restaurant industry and expected better service and food for spending over $200 on a dinner…. There was no server and I believe the restaurant manager was going around taking orders. While he was nice, he definitely did not pay much attention to our table and we would’ve ordered more drinks if service was more attentive.

The food was way better than expected and our waitress was wonderful. She showed up when needed but do not hover. We had a nice long and relaxing dinner and did not feel rushed! Will definitely go back. Only negative was that it was drizzling for about 10 minutes when we arrived so they sat us inside, even though we wanted to be outside. Shortly after we were seated they were seating people outside again, so we missed having the lovely view. Oh well, better luck next time!

Due to the heat, we decided to order apps. The gazpacho was a disappointment and the mozzarella with prosciutto and artichokes equally so as the artichokes seemed out of a can rather than braised as per the menu. The dish was artfully arranged but the mozzarella was chewy and had no taste. My friend had the mussels but wasn’t raving about them altho she seemed to enjoy her app.
The confusion or rather lack of information re: parking became the topic of conversation when my friend arrived. Front desk staff said it was ok to park in the Wells Fargo lot next door but seeing signs that cars would be towed was not reassuring. By contrast my friend parked out in front of the restaurant where one hour parking only signs are posted. Our waiter said my friend could park there for 2 hrs. Which is it or risk a ticket?
In general, altho setting was what we wanted, the server didn’t offer a refill of iced tea which is a courtesy always appreciated. The service was spotty bordering on inexperienced but they were nice & polite but in general, I would not return. We had ample time to get in a long overdue visit and weren’t rushed so that’s a plus.

A little chaotic. We had multiple different servers which is understandable as we were told by the hostess that they were very short staffed because of Covid. We ordered things multiple times with multiple people. Our appetizer never came. When ordering our app the waiter told us we had to put our dinner order in right then and there as they were busy and acted annoyed when we were unsure of our pick. Our entrees were brought out almost before we could finish ordering so they couldn’t have been that busy. We were overcharged for drinks we never ordered. We brought that attention to the manager who picked up our check and he was extremely rude acted like we were bothering him. Food was pretty good but will not be returning.
We were seated and rushed out in 45 minutes. Half the tables were empty.

When my friend and I entered, I told the hostess that we had a reservation for two. She asked my name, etc. The whole time she did not look at me, she just looked at my friend though I was the one speaking. It was really strange.

We were led to our table. Though we had an umbrella, it was on the side of my friend. I asked the taller waiter, if he could move it a little, so I was better protected from the shade or could I have another umbrella. He declined both requests and walked away.

My friend and I ordered salads mine was the artichoke. We asked whether we could have a protein with the salads and the shorter waiter said yes, The prices were not listed on the menu and we were very surprised, at the price. The salads were small. I assumed that was because of my friends added chicken and my added salmon. When we got the bill, however, it appeared that the chicken and salmon must have cost close to $20. higher than in most similar restaurants in Westport. Also, when I unfolded my napkin, there was a fork and a butter knife. The shorter waiter gladly exchanged it for a regular knife.

The taller waiter brought our check. He had not asked whether we wanted separate checks. We asked if he could give us separate checks. He said no, it would be too much trouble. Exhausted by the whole experience, we just gave him two credit cards.

After paying, we left and decided we would not return because of all that had transpired. I have been to Arezzo many times over the years. It was also a very pleasant experience. The wait staff and hostess definitely need some professional development.

We had a lovely dinner on the patio. The service was kind and prompt- maybe food was a little rushed… the pasta is definitely the way to go- salads were nice too.

Food and atmosphere are good. Service was terrible. And not because of not enough staff - bus staff were numerous walking around looking at tables but missing the big picture which was far too few wait staff. It took 30 minutes for one to take out drink order, and then he never returned. We had nothing, not even water, for our entire entree. This place has the worst service imaginable. Would not recommend it until there is new management, or any management whatsever.
