Arugula has gotten better since it opened a few years ago. It's really good now and the atmosphere has a fun vibe but not too much.

Took my adult kids for Easter pre dinner since we could not be together on Easter Day. Had a delicious meal, each one better than the next. Shared a bottle of wine. Great time!

Good Italian. Good service.
A little sterile, likely related to newish architectural style. Just space.

We picked this at random and were very, very impressed. The food was creative and very well prepared. I could eat the veal chop every night. Service was a bit slow, but the food and the overall atmosphere far made up for it.

Food was excellent - just as it’s been the 2 times I’ve been here before. Creative menu, really-fresh ingredients, and wonderfully-light and flavorful seasonings. And I love that it’s still a BYO.

I would definitely come back.

Made us wait an unreasonable amount of time with a reservation . There were many open tables but not bussed tables . Kitchen was apparently backed up and wouldn’t seat us . They could have seated us with at least bread and a drink . Also for good customer service should have at least offered us an appetizer or something on the house . Won’t go back!

I always enjoy the food at Arugula. The pasta is delicious and the entrees are even better. The dessert also are always a delight. Portions are the right size not too much but also not the small plates that are often served at this caliber restaurant. Service is very attentive with a round of different wait staff constantly checking in on the diners. The place can get noisy and not all table locations are idea. We were seated at table that was crammed in between two entrance ways. There was a constant flow of patrons going past both sides of our table. I would have been more accepting of this if there were not other tables open in the middle of the dinning room the entire time we were there. I would have thought that this table should be the last one to be filled on any given night since it seemed to be the worst table in the restaurant.

We've been to Arugula several times so,obviously,we enjoy it. My friend and I always share the antipast for our appetizer. It is delicious,good quality,nicely varied,and sufficient for two. This time,I tried the penne alla vodka which was very good; my friend had the lamb chops which he said were delicious. We were both full so no dessert for us.
The menu has a nice selection from appetizers to flat breads to entrees,and the prices are very reasonable. And,the fact that it's a BYO helps even more. Service is always friendly and efficient. There's also a free parking lot. The only complaint is the noise level. It's boisterous every time we go so be prepared for that.

The food and service was excellent. We had the lobster ravioli and shrimp and scallops special. I don’t like scallops and they were able to accommodate me and not have scallops in my meal.

Always a wonderful meal at Arugula. The Bronzino is a beautiful dish, and the service is always excellent. There were a couple of loud tables on the evening we were there, but no fault of the restaurant - noise level is usually fine. We visit often, and will be back again

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...
