Several Italian restaurants have opened in South Charlotte the past couple of years, but Arooji’s is the one we always find ourselves coming back to. One of the best wait staffs of any restaurant we’ve been and the food is always great.

My wife and I had dinner there last night and start to finish everything was just perfect.

This was the first time that the wait for the bread was unusually lengthy which is odd for this establishment. Additionally, the request for more oil and vinegar was such that I used up was originally given to me and made the same request from two different people before more was finally brought. When I looked over my shoulder, the person who I originally asked was entertaining another table. Again, very odd. The third aspect to this is that the second guest ordered an appetizer which she was planning to enjoy as her entree, but they brought it out when they brought my appetizer. So, it sat there as I split my appetizer with her. This was a dinner made awkward by the servers.

The Steak was very good as was the Lobster Ravioli. Service was a little slower this time due to a couple larger parties and us being just 2 but not troubling.

Always a good meal and one of our regular places for Italian near Ballantyne

Have been here twice before. This visit, service was good but the food was not as good as previous visits. Will think twice about returning again. Dining room was about 1/2 full, but noise level was very high making conversation difficult. Room has high ceilings which causes sound to be amplified.

Aroojli's is quiet a little gem. I had moved away from the Charlotte area back in" 96". I can't believe they ha e been open for 17 yrs. The food was amazing, nice atmosphere and wait staff never told us they closed. We were there 40 min. After closing and they just let me and my date enjoy our dinner and conversation. Thank you Angelo!

Restaurant not busy and service was attentive. Branzino was superb if a bit pricey. Ambiance is cozy and quiet. On Tuesdays 1/2 off bottles of wine which was a plus.
Will return due to excellent food.

I would recommend them but it would come with a warning that this place needs a deep cleaning. Dust is everywhere and I mean everywhere. It actually needs a makeover but at least keep the place clean . I don’t get it. Good food, service but because of the filth, the prices are too high. Please get it together. The Promenade needs you!!!

Came here with party of 6 to celebrate a birthday. The service was exceptional, wine list impressive, and food was very good. While the food was very good, the wine selection, ambiance, and service were what will bring me back. I would definitely recommend for small celebration or a date night.

We were sat in a high traffic area that had head lights shining directly at us as people pulled into parking spots outside. Our waiter got our appetizer incorrect, and it wasn’t very good. The bread was good, and the main course was good. Portions are large. The atmosphere is nice as well. I would go back but I wouldn’t make it a regular place.

Fabulous dinner in an ideal ambient setting. This is best dining experience in the 485-Providence area. Calamari appetizer was delight, as were Pollo Marsala and Chicken Parmigiana entrees. We will definitely return soon. There is a nice bar area and a number of appealing high top tables for appetizers or dinner.
