We loved our food at Arrivederci, and our waiter/host, Giovanni was incredible. He even celebrated my birthday with a tiramisu and sang to me! I love how quaint the venue is and how it's tucked away in a little unexpected spot.

We live nearby and have been patronizing them for close to 30 years. Food and service has been consistently great. It can get a bit hard to hear as the place fills up, but will continue to make them a favorite of ours.

Great food, excellent service in a comfortable setting. As far as I'm concerned, it's the best Italian restaurant in Scottsdale.

Good food and service. Enthusiastic waitress. Wine list was comprehensive and the wine and food prices were fairly reasonable. On the noisy side- but it was a Friday night at prime time.
Definitely worth a repeat visit

The reservation time was at 8 pm but didn't get seated until 8:30 pm. They took several walk-ins prior to the reservation. It didn't make sense to even have a reservation. Our order was placed and we watched a couple that sat down 20 minutes after we did, receive their food before us. We had to wait almost 15 minutes later. The waitress was nice and she is the only reason there are two stars. The food was okay but not what I expected from a true Italian restaurant. Overall it was okay.

We were seated immediately upon our arrival which was terrific because it was Valentine’s Day. Because it was very busy, our waiter, who was wonderful, was not available to take our beverage order quickly. We were attended to as much as humanly possible when we ordered and were served. Meals were delicious as always. It was a memorable V-Day celebration.

As usual, it was a lovely experience. Great service and delicious food.
It was a problem that they changed us twice on our credit card. Thank goodness our bank reversed the second charge.

Our reservation was for 7:00PM and the place was packed. There is very little room to wait inside the front door. We were seated at 7:15 and everything was outstanding from that point on. It's very loud, but we were able to converse without much difficulty.

First, let me say "We love the place"! However, that evening they were over booked. It was loud, really loud. The service was very slow and the food, the food was marginal. Please, please fix it, please!!!!!

My companion and I were treated like family during our visit. All dishes presented were delicious, and we were presented with an 'on-the-house' special dessert in honor of my birthday. One small improvement might be of huge value: The chair seats are a bit stiff for old bones; wouldn;t stop me from returning, but some softening here would bring me back faster.

Very good Italian that is more authentic and less bulk and quantity. Very nice people with kindness and service in mind. Always bring clients and friends and family here to experience excellence in North Scottsdale.

We went to Arrivederci Ristorante with a friend from out of town, looking for great Italian food. With the Phoenix Open golf tournament in town, we knew it would be tough to find last minute reservations, even early like we wanted to go. Arrivederci had some openings and off we went. When we arrived, we were offered a table just inside the door of the restaurant in a very busy, probably noisy spot. We declined it, which I don't think they expected and asked for somewhere quieter. We were shown a table in a corner which was great. Most of the reason for my lower rating is that the food was good, but not great. My husband's calamari was a bit overcooked, I got the bolognese sauce which was mostly ground beef, very little sauce, and I was looking for a good fresh sauce. Great for some, but not for me. Our friend got lasagna, which again, was good but not great. Although two out of three of us are Boomers, I'd say the recipes are a bit old school and need a fresh update to move into the "great" category. Make reservations if you do go at a busy time, as the place was overflowing with golf fans and out the door when we left.
