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.

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.
