Arrivederci Wine & Jazz
Sunday, Feb.14, 2016: 5pm - 10pm
I really enjoyed listening to Barbara Lusch's jazz singing and Dan Gaynor's accompaniment and improvisation. In addition, the wine and food I had, Archer Terrace Cabernet and mussels, was darned tasty.
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.
This is an awesome place, the jazz is first class and the management is fantastic
Met some girlfriends here for a drink and we were so delighted with the spicy shrimp and lava cake we shared too!!! Service was EXCELLENT, ambiance so adorable and romantic but also laid back. We will all be back to meet again or for date nights with our hubbys. What a find!
Had a great time last Saturday. The service was great and so was the music.
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...
Hands down... the best Italian in Portland. Bacon/Figs are decadent. Owner has a personal touch in the happening Friday night vibe.
Excellent service. Wonderful food. Love their happy hour menu. Fantastic live music and when you want to have quiet conversation, there’s seating in the back. Perfect environment for all!
Everything was Fantastic!!
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.
Music was excellent. The list of wines was good. We had a great time. We will visit again.
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!
Food was delicious. Staff was very friendly and professional. Loved the atmosphere.
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!
In my neighborhood, really good food, light jazz if you hang out, friendly owners, fun pictures on the wall, maze like set up with lots of private cubby seating.
I really like this place.
Menu was good, wine choices we’re ok. Service was slow. Music was too loud for conversation
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.
Their gluten free pizza and pasta options are great. The ambiance is eclectic and enjoyable. I have a great wine selection and overall this is a really good destination especially for its location.
One of those rare places with great food, wonderful owners, great vibe, and amazing music. Fast becoming a favorite destination for a fun and entertaining night with amazing food and beverages.
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.
We're never disappointed going here. Thank you for a great intimate Italian restaurant!!
Great place to gather with friends. Wait staff is attentive, food is excellent, and drinks are over the top. Not overly expensive either.
Wonderful atmosphere did not feel like we were in Milwaukie, OR. really takes you into another element which was very surprising yet really nice ! Food was very good, place was vibrant and busy and fun. Had a Great time, we will be back and have already told friends and family about Arrivederci, thanks for a Great time !
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.
Live Jazz music each night... great food as always...
The food was very good. We were there for Sellwood Jazz which was excellent.
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!
We love it!!! Great people great ambiance and great service!!!
I am in love with this place! From the amazing wine list, delicious food, to the incredible live music. Can’t say enough good things. Will most definitely be going back.
We love this place! Lee is the best!
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.
We had a very good meal. The service wasn’t very attentive, had to request our wine from the bartender.
Excellent food and service. I will be going there again in the future. What a jewel hidden on McLaughlin in Milwaukie.
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.
Special thanks to Samantha for taking such good care of our party. Even found a better table for us.
Excellent overall experience. We had prompt service and the food was great.
Food and service was excellent. Great atmosphere.
Great place for friends, food and wine. The music is always great.
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.
