Best italian restaurant in the area. Dishes are unique, but at the same time familiar. BYOB makes it great value. Waiter didn't rush us and allowed us to enjoy our dinner at a slow pace. Food was awesome.

This is one of my favorite restaurants so it is tough for me to not give them 5 stars for each area. However, my family and i where there this Sunday for dinner it was not very crowded but our boot took very long to make. It looked as though the waiter sent it back for some reason. The waiter never let us know what was going on and did not apologize for the delay. When the food arrived you can tell it was sitting for awhile. My Chicken was overcooked and so was the pasta. I used to mange and wait at a restaurant very similar so i know how long food should take and what it should look look when presented. Again, This is one of my favorite places and I hesitate putting this review up because I want more people to go there and make it thrive but this past experience was not acceptable. My hope is they will take this review and learn from it... I am chalking it up to a bad night...

My friends and I decided to get together for lunch on the Presidents holiday. We all love this restaurant, two of us are Italian and the other two are Irish. But we really enjoy the Italian the waiters and waitresses have and they are never overwhelming and bothering us all the time while we are eating and talking. The food is absolutely delicious and the ambience makes us feel like I am in Italy with my relatives! Thank you all so much for providing an authentic experience! Ciao!

We got there right when they opened but for some reason it took almost an hour to receive our meals. The appetizer and bread was ok but our meals were very bland. The food is definitely not worth the cost. Was very much looking forward to trying this place but unfortunately it was a let down.

I enjoy my visits and the variety of food options are marvelous. I tend to order the whole Branzino but would recommend that you order the fish with a firmer texture, my last visit found the fish too soft for my taste. Looking forward to my next visit soon!

I had heard decent reviews about this place so I recommended to meet my parents here one night. Overall experience was not good. Initially our server was attentive and got our order immediately upon being seated and reviewing the menu. Then we waited...and waited...for salads. We were one of the first reservations of the night so it can’t even be blamed on being crowded! Servers kept coming over and looking at us, but no one brought anything. Water was refilled 3x before we saw a morsel of food. Finally someone gave us bread and a few bruschetta. Our salads eventually arrived. I had the arugula salad which was over dressed and just nothing special. My fault for not asking for the dressing on the side. It had potential but missed the mark. I tasted my daughters Caesar salad which was much better. I ordered a pappardelle dish with shrimp. The pappardelle was cooked okay but the shrimp was over cooked and tough. The dish had NO flavor despite adding salt and cheese to it. I barely finished it. Again, a lot of potential but missed the mark. We did not even attempt dessert. I would not recommend nor ever go back again. At least it was a byob and I didn’t waste even more money on alcohol!

Been going for about 10yrs.
Excellent Traditional Italian food, at a very moderate price point. Specials are always on point quality wise.
Having been raised in Italy, Arugula does the Country’s Cuisine proud.
