Always a very good experience. 2 of 3 plates were delicious, 1 just good. Love the ambiance of the place. Could do a bit to improve service...but I’ll be back.

Music too loud for conversation. Even in the back where we were seated. .never understand why bands think they need to crank up the music levels...

Food over the top. Best dining we’ve had in Portland. Unfortuanately we missed the live band (gold Dust) but heard them warming up. We arrived to early for dinner. Won’t make that mistake again. Had a question on out reservation and staff got back to us in a timely manor and answered every question.

My husband and I try a new place every Halloween, this year it was Arrivederci! Made my reservations, got seated but then that was it, no more service!! One employee in the bar noticed us just sitting there waiting and called someone over and they acted like “That’s not my table” attitude. Then service all evening was terrible, another waiter wanted to take our menus but not even take our order!! Not sure if it’s worth it for another time. So sad!

Arrivederci is one of our favorite places to go for both dinner/drinks and special occasions. Great live music. Make reservations to be sure you will have a spot, often it fills up - especially Friday and Saturday. A gem for Milwaukie. They made our last visit there very special. Thank you!

Arrivederci is great for a night of Italian cuisine and jazz. If you want to focus on the live music, ask for a table in the front. If you just want some background music while you visit with friends, sit in the back. Love this place. I'll go back again and again.

The food is excellent and much better than we anticipated. We also enjoy the music very much. The reason for the lower grade is that the service the last time we were there was not good. We think there was a problem in the kitchen but we were never told why the delay. We have been there before and it has been a good experience so we are going to over-look this one-off (we hope) experience.

This is a fun casual dining option. The food is very good. The wine is reasonable. The other guests looked liked they were enjoying themselves. There is always live music. I had bruschetta and gnocchi and a glass of red and they were all yummy.

What a fantastic little find! You would never know from the inside that you were right off of 99E. I was quite impressed by the freshness of their food and the produce they used. Everything we tried was excellent and priced reasonably. Clientele age ranged from mid-twenties to mid-seventies, giving it a fun, eclectic feel. I wouldn't describe the vibe as terribly swanky or stuffy (you might expect that from the name), but maintaining a balance of high quality (food/music/wine) and easy going. I.e., this spot is equally appropriate for a date night or special event, or just a casual night with friends or family. You can definitely hang out here for a few hours enjoying the music with a bottle and some apps and not feel rushed out.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit here with friends and will definitely be regular patrons!

Good food great music! The Jazz group really added to the atmosphere of the restaurant and the mood of the evening. The special Spicy Seafood pasta was very good. only one thing missing, They really need a good Chianti on the menu. I think an Italian restaurant with our a good Chianti is like cake without icing.

First and foremost, make a reservation! Met with friends the other evening. We received a warm welcome and were seated promptly. Our server was attentive and helpful. For example one of our party wasn't sure whether she wanted the house white or pinot grigio, the server brought samples. Thank you very much. The food was delicious and well presented. Needless to say, we'll be back in a month or so.

Our first visit and were not disappointed. Came for husbands birthday and food was delicious, ambiance was good but noise level was really high. So loud at some times, we couldn't hear each other talk (a table of ladies were having a VERY good time). We will definitely come again, but probably a little later in the evening so we can enjoy the music for a while.
