    Food was amazing! Great wine selection with a variety of price points. We arrived earlier then our reservation and they were able to seat us. It was very busy so we appreciated that. Only down side is it’s very loud. With 4 of us at the table we had to speak up. Would highly recommend.

    Portions could be bigger for the price you’re paying. Same for the drinks, I ordered an old fashioned that was only filled up 1/3 of a small glass for $14. Food is delicious, just want bigger portions for the dollar. Parking is difficult uptown.

    The food was excellent and so was our server! It was a bit loud, but that's to be expected when having dinner at a restaurant that is just around the corner from the theater when there's a big show going on. We would definitely come back and eat here again!

    I came here for Valentine’s with my girlfriend. We were seated promptly and the waitstaff were all very nice. The complimentary bread came with Fava beans I believe, and olive oil was already on the table. I honestly didn’t very much enjoy the beans but the bread with just oil was fine. We both ordered the Roman Style Carbonara, and it was excellent. At first I thought the portions were too small, but the pasta was rich enough that I actually couldn’t finish it. The sauce was very good. The inside of the restaurant was beautiful, with nice lighting. My only issue would be the noise level, which obviously the restaurant can’t really control. I just had a hard time having a conversation because I couldn’t hear my girlfriend. Overall about a 9/10.

    Seating was not comfortable, we were seated In the corner too close to a nosey group. The lasagna was dry and looked like it had been reheated. Pork chop was wet due to too much chimichurri. All meals lacked basic salt. The Negroni was outstanding. The kale Caesar salad was great! The server never asked us about our main course, which left us less than satisfied.

    There were two events planned in the area so it was very busy. Pasta was excellent but my salmon was overcooked. Chicken Parm was good. Took nearly an hour before we got our food. Some kind of mix-up but waiter gave us a glass of wine and offered desert but we did not have time to eat it. Quite expensive but it is downtown Charlotte.

    Been there many times. They found our reservation after searching. Didn't honor our table request and didn't ask what table we wanted. Tried to seat us at an undesirable location but after our objection they let us choose the table where we wished to be seated. The restaurant should provide better service to guests who frequent the establishment and make reservations through OpenTable.

    The meal and service were excellent. But just like anything these days I do believe it was overpriced. But all restaurants are priced so high now that going out to dinner is an absolute treat instead of a weekly outing.

    Have dined there many times over the years, but this was disappointing. Food was skimpy for the price--e.g., two small scallops and a cup of greens for $40; four bites of a pricy meat dish. Dessert, however, was very good and a generous portion. Server and staff were welcoming and pleasant.

    We love Aria. Our granddaughter does especially when we go before the opera. She loves the food, the atmosphere, and the energy. It is loud unless you can find a table set away from the hubbub. Our only complaint is the exiguous vegetarian options. It’s pricey but worth it.

    The restaurant was ambience was nice and the food was lovely. However, I was quite put off by the hostess at the front when we first entered the restaurant. She was very short with me to the point of being rude. We saw a sign around the corner that stated that there was free valet parking. I asked a couple of questions about where to wait for the valet as no one was actually there. Her response was just very short as though I was annoying her. Interestingly, there was no line of people in front of, nor behind me, so it's not like she was busy or overwhelmed. Unfortunately, this left me with a negative first impression, which lowered my experience. Had she been nice, I probably would have given a higher review.

    Aria's food and service is always superior, but on a Friday night with Queen's Feast going on, they went above and beyond to meet our varied needs. We were moved to a quieter alcove table immediately when I explained my husband had hearing issues at the open table we were first seated at - very kindly done, with smiles and a no problem attitude. The food was delicious, and the serving sizes were large (especially since we got the Queens Feast 3 course special), and although came promptly, we never felt rushed. The wait staff were very professional, and made our experience better than expected during a very busy night. We would recommend Aria's to anyone wanting a delicious Italian meal in Uptown, with outstanding service, and excellent value for the money.
