The service was wonderful, right from being greeted at the door to paying the check. The food was delicious! This has been a favorite for some time. Really nice atmosphere as well.

The food and service was excellent! We don’t get out much, so it was a nice treat. Prices are reasonable especially considering how good everything was. Absolutely loved it!

Excellent service compliments the excellent food. Generous portions with great eye appeal combine with wonderful flavors. NOT just another Italian restaurant, but a true Italian experience. Highly recommended.

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.

Atmosphere is quiet and comfortable. That's the plus.
Wine list unimpressive with first 2 bottle selections we chose not available. We also attempted to order appetizer of meatballs ( in an Italian restaurant ) only to be told they were out of meatballs ......at 7 pm on a Saturday Evening. Overall food was average so a three rating is a high rating and possibly should have been a 2.5.

Service was very good however.
