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.

We had to wait 15 minutes for our reservation but visited the small bar area. The food was tasty but my dish was not what I ordered and my wife's veal was tough. A bit pricey for the quality in my opinion. Doubtful to return.

Excellent service; quiet, comfortable seating seating and delicious food. The complimentary fresh, hot rolls were a wonderful way to start our meal. All portions were very generous - really too much food! Our group had the tortellini, risotto and chicken parmigiana - all were well prepared & presented beautifully. Everyone was super pleased with their choice but I would say the risotto was not traditional nonetheless extremely flavorful. We were visiting Charlotte and this was our first time at Arooji’s - we will definitely go back!

It was very quiet for a Sunday night. The ambience was charming and the staff was very attentive. I had the lamb, which was delicious and my wife had the Pollo marsala, which I highly recommend. It's not a cheap restaurant, but it is totally worth the money.
