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.

This was a "save face" for me! I stupidly tried to make a reservation for Mother's Day dinner for my wife and I WAY late in the game- "D'Oh!!" but she was happy with the belated nite out. I love this place! YUM.

If you really enjoy good Italian wine, ask for what they have off the menu.

I have come to Arrivederci many times with my husband and it has always been a good experience. Last weekend I booked a reservation for six people and we were seated in a booth. It was one of the most uncomfortable dining experiences I've had to date. The booth is very poorly designed--the table is far from the bench seating and you can't pull the benches in to get closer to the table. The only comfortable way to dine is by either holding your plate up to your torso, or sitting at the very edge of the bench so you can reach the table. Three of the six people at dinner were in pain by the end of the meal. Also, this particular table didn't have a server--it was taken care of by the bartender, but no one told us that. We sat there for a long time waiting for someone to offer drinks or food orders and no one came by. I finally waved to the bartender (through an odd cut out in the wall) and asked for a server. The bartender said he would take our orders. He was very nice once we caught his attention, but it was an odd dining experience. This was for a special occasion and was pretty disappointing. Discomfort aside, the food was great. I just don't want to have to ice my back after spending $200 on a meal.

Table for 8 was not in a great location but that really could not be helped. They have limited spots in the restaurant that will accommodate that size party. Had I known 2 of us were not going to make it I could have adjusted the reservation and opened up entirely different areas of the place which would have been great.
Aside from that one point I really would recommend this place. Decent wine list, great food and music. My third time here, I will definitely return.

Dinner was delicious! Great music! A hidden gem on Mcgloughlin. I will go back again, soon. The restaurant has a cool vibe to it, it has multiple areas/sections that all have a different feel about them. The music started later then I expected so we hung out to listen for a while. Great evening

As always, the food was great, as was the service. My only complaint was the live music was so loud we couldn't hear our dinner companions talk, despite the fact that we were as far away as is physically possible to be. In addition, the music was definitely NOT jazz but some loud contemporary stuff. It was nearly 8 pm on a Saturday night, but certainly not past dinner hours. I guess I'll go earlier or not on Saturday. One of the main appeals is the jazz. I hope this wasn't typical.

I was hoping for an intimate and cozy jazz bar, but the band was more of a wedding top-40 cover band. The food was just ok. It’s a neat space, but it had the ambiance of a chain restaurant instead of a “wine and jazz” spot.

The "hostess" sat us in the bar, with high chairs, when I specifically said "high chairs" are not comfortable for me. I did not appreciate that and would have probably left but my friend said let's try it.
It wasn't outstanding food wise, just okay. Service was good.

Very friendly staff. They did, however try to seat us at the bar. It was Valentines Day and there were plenty of tables available when we arrived. We were told it was because we made our reservations so late. I told them we had made the reservations two weeks prior. At any rate, they did seat us at a table by my request and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Absolutely loved this place, stumbled across Arrivederci simply due to it being close to work. The location is pretty hidden and it's a total gem of a find. The bar and wine list is extensive and the venue is great for a romantic meal, or even a fun night out. The service was excellent and so was the food and drinks. I would highly recommend this place, and will certainly visit again!
