    Took some of my team members to dinner. As soon as the waiter found out we did not want appetizers and only 1 person ordered any alcohol , it was like rush us through dinner. We were just enjoying bread and olive oil and almost immediately after we ordered our dinner it was on the table. Food was good, but the extra attitude was not necessary.

    Ate here at the recommendation of a coworker who lives in Charlotte. I had the lamb shank --- largest lamb shank portion that I have ever been served. Absolutely delicious. Others had homemade pasta dishes, said that they were delicious, too. Best Fritto Misto that I have ever eaten. Highly recommend.

    Just moved down to NC. Read the reviews on Aria and decide to make a reservation for my wife’s bday. Our server,Xavier was outstanding. Was very attentive and gave honest opinion on some of the menu items. My wife had the Ricotta and focaccia bread for app and the Ravioli for dinner. I had the prosciutto and melon for app and the Lamb shank for dinner. We shared the cannoli dessert. The food was outstanding. Portions were the right size and prepared perfectly. My main complaint and the reason I didn’t give it the top rating was the seating. The tables are to close together, causing servers and busboys to have the rear end inches from my face while tending to adjacent table. Then, one knocked into my wife’s wine glass, which she was able to stop from falling but not before her knife landed on her dress. The management did the right thing, covering our dessert, but this shouldn’t happen. The tables need to be spread out to allow servers to have room, and patrons to have conversations without whispering as not to be overheard. I did see on other reviews that this has been an issue with other diners previously.. I will definitely return to Aria, but will request on my reservation that my table not be on top of any others .

    Horrific experience. Attempted to celebrate my 31st birthday from the moment we arrived the waiter seemed unprofessional. He got into a physical altercation with another waiter near the bar and never came back to the table for 20 minutes because he was getting reprimanded by the manager. Service was horrible, food was extremely salty and peppery. Worst experience and would never go back. Never experience such unprofessional people and mediocre food.

    Our server service was not what I'd expect at a restaurant that's suppose to be more upscale. I had to ask for water, and he walked past us several times. Service was slow. The portions are small. There was a group of 10 at one table who was loud, using profanity and no one said anything to them. Now imagine if it was a group of minorities, do you think they would have said something?

    Food was really good - I had the Gnocchi alla Bolognese and it was delicious. Our server was clearly busy but did well with the number of tables he had to work with and he was friendly. The only thing I didn't really care for was how close together the tables were where we sat (at the booth downstairs along the front wall). My shoulders were practically touching the people next to me. Especially during a pandemic, I would have liked a little more space between me and my fellow diners. Also, it was SO loud in there, but I guess that's going to be the case on a busy pre-theater evening when everyone is in one big room. Still - would go back for the food and the super convenient location to Belk Theater.

    The food at Aria is always satisfying. The housemade pasta is one of the reasons I come here. I love the way the flavors are complemented - I had the Tagliatelle with crabmeat and sweet corn, punctuated with a burst of flavor from hot peppers. The featured entree was grilled baby octopus in a fun pasta that looked like calamari rings served with a tomato-caper sauce and olive gremolata. Both were exceptional.

    My wife and I have been here a number of times but it had been over 10 months to a year since the last time. The service we poor. Zero attention to details like asking for a refill or getting me another drink. No interaction with the waiter at all besides taking our order. Had to “ask” for everything. R tote menu and food portions were much smaller then we remembered. No need to rush back to Aria and removing from “my list” on Open table.

    My friend and I made a reservation for restaurant week. We were seated at the upper level and it was a bit noisy as there was a wedding going on right behind us w/ a live band. Our waiter was fun and attentive. The food was a 4/5 for us. I don’t remember the wine we got but it was AMAZING! Overall, I would come back and it’s well worth your funds. The only downside was the complementary valet parking. There was only one person working that evening and we waited 25-30 minutes for our car. I’m not sure if there was an event the night we went, but it was frustrating. See the tiktok I made on the evening @sydneyc23 :)
