We love this place, friendly and great food, the service is great and I especially like the choice of gluten free options and the aperitif drink at the end of the meal.

I have been here several times, with a “regular”patron.. I had 6:30 reservation .....we chose se our wine, and waited 15 minutes for a waiter....finally asked....even after ordering $100+ wine, we waited forever for server. We had to ask for every refill, more bread, et. I was so embarrassed for my guests ...the food took forever,, it was tasty when it arrived.

We came in for our reservation at 7:00 on a Friday and waited for 15 minutes before we decided to leave. There were two other groups with reservations as well that we waiting and several more that had reservations that couldn't even check-in. There was no hostess, only someone to run over from the bar in spare moments. They could have been understaffed, but we weren't close to getting a table so we left. Could have been an irregularly busy night, but we didn't want to stay and wait for what might have been much longer.

Small, crowded, noisy, but pleasant. Food was authentic with an extensive menu. Prices were very reasonable. Seemed to be a little short on wait staff. Ours never returned to see if we wanted Parmesan cheese on the pasta or extra sauce which it seemed to need. Bread was fresh. Nice selection of wine. Overall, I would recommend it, just not on a Saturday night.

It was a quaint little place. The server was great with my kids and was able to customize meals to their liking. The wine was a little warm, but i think all italians like it like that.

Our experience was the same as all of your five star reviewers. Those that complained about the portion sizes eat too much. Based on one of the reviews I told my guests that the portion sizes were small so no problem ordering an appetizer. And then the lamb shank and the fish arrived and they couldn’t eat it all. Nevertheless it was fabulous

Arrivederci is fabulous. The food is really good. We loved the pasta, the antipasto trays and the salads. The service is excellent.

At times it can get quite crowded as they have a lot of tables packed into a small area. You do need to make a reservation otherwise you won't get in.

We have been going here for many years. Food is excellent! Everyone who works there is very friendly - they always welcome us back with warm and friendly greetings. Our favorite dish is their thinly rolled eggplant. Osso Bucco is also excellent as well as pastas and veal dishes. So yummy!

I was terribly disappointed in the fact that my order (veal marsala) was so small a portion, that it was embarassing. The sauce had a small quantity of marsala wine in it (by taste) but most important there were only 2 small slices of veal at 1/8th inch by 3 1/2 inches. I know that the slices should be very thin for veal marsala but there were only 2 of them that would total 3 1/2-4 ounces in total.
So miniscule for a major meat dish !. I left the restaurant hungry. Thank you, Milford Gottlob, MD

Excellent Italian restaurant with that feeling of authenticity. The staff has been together a long time and the sense of a family owned restaurant gives it a charm that is unlike what you find in many independently owned restaurants as well as, of course, chains. If we lived here we would be regulars.

Great homemade Italian food. We have been to Arrivederci twice. Both visits we were greeted in a friendly manner and made to feel welcome. After a short wait we were seated in the dining room. Our server was quick to bring us water and menus. I ordered the veal marsala which was very good with a side of penne pasta with marinara sauce. The homemade tiramisu was one of the best I've ever had. I would definitely return to this restaurant when I return to the Scottsdale area.

Good food and value. However, make sure you allow 5-10 minutes to check-in. On this occasion, it took time to check-in and my reservation was not honored. Also, it seemed reservations are maintained on a book rather than computer. I had to wait 20 minutes for a table. Also, add in extra time to find parking. The restaurant should consider expanding to allow some room between tables. Be ready to share your conversation with the table next to you. Maybe, the owner is being strategic about limiting space in order to showing a thriving restaurant.
