Restaurant felt intimate but not too small. Staff was friendly and accomodating. The selection of cocktails was impressive and the bartender was amazing. I had the butternut squash tortelloni for dinner which was delicious and light. The apple tart for dessert was a nice treat and did not disappoint. Will definitely go back next time I'm in Charlotte.

My wife and I needed a place to enjoy our NYE dinner date together and chose Aria. Aria did not let us down! It was so delicious and the service was great. Our server was a delight as well. Very kind and had a great knowledge of the menu. She made ordering painless! I wish I remembered her name. Will definitely be returning!

Good food, good value, open New Years' eve, accepted reservations, no cancellation fees, special menu plus normal menu. Only negative comment, nearby parking was high priced and restaurant did not provide parking ticket comp.

I attended Aria with a group of friends and family for my birthday. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was subpar. For the price, I was expecting flavorful dishes. They lacked seasoning. I probably won’t return but I do recommend trying it out. Everyone is different and your experience may be better than mine.

Our waiter was distracted with a larger table. We were never offered “specials”, which I overheard from another server. Our appetizer mussels were very fishy, and the gnocchi almost tasted frozen. The main entree was very good. We were brought the check without being offered dessert. We are very easy going, but this was a disappointing experience.

The seasonal tortellini is always a winner. And an excellent bar menu. Perfect for a quick bite before a show at Belk Theater

We usually sit at the bar to CBS get the bar bites for the great value and flavor. But we also love the mixed drinks even better. Planning to try them all.

We had Duck Bolognese (primi), Scallops (secondi), and two desserts - tiramisu and pear crostini.

Duck was good value and well balanced, desserts were good. 4 scallops and a little vegetable for $ 30, overpriced. Good plentiful bread, with beans in olive oil, nice touch.
Service not very good. Our primi came fast but had to wait for about 25 minutes for the scallops, and they forgot to bring ordered wine (had to remind them). There was a part of around 12, with a couple of other small groups (Monday night). So some positive points and some negatives, poor overall service means we probably won't go back.

Food was good but not exciting at all. Had our kids don’t recommend for kids at all and it’s like going back to 2005 no soda refills you need to buy a beer soda each time kind of odd. I had wild boar cavetelli unfortunately it was not enough food to feed 160lb man felt like I needed a second dinner. Overall worth a try but not a return.

Nice atmosphere but the food wasn’t worth the price. It was unfortunately bland and a bit dry. You could tell the ingredients were great quality just lacked flavor. 😕
