I have been going to this place ever since it opened. It seems like their quality and portion size has diminished over my last few visits. I pretty much order the same entree every time... In the past I had to take some home. this past time i had to sent it back as it had more tomato's them protein...

Everything we had was good. The bread with complimentary bruschetta, our appetizers, and main entrees. The place had a nice modern, romantic feel. I would recommend!

We had a fantastic dinner on Valentine's Day. The Staff was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. They had a special Valentine's Day menu and each item we ordered was delicious. At the end of the meal we were give limoncello shots on the house, as well as a rose and a travel wine bag. Would recommended to all my friends, we will be going back soon!

We have come here often, but the last two times the food was not up to par. We both had veal and it was just awful. Not pounded - thick in some area, thin in others and grisly. Calamari and Lemoncello cake were good. Entrees need improvement
plus need to update menu. It has not changed in years. We won’t come back.

The evening, celebrating a birthday, was outstanding with excellent comfort, service, and food. It is always a pleasure dining at Arugula.

It was so noisy on a Saturday night that we did not enjoy our experience despite good food and service. Something more (beyond the noise-cancelling ceiling panels that are already in place) must be done about the noise.

Server was slow. It appeared she forgot about us. It took her so long to take our dinner order. I thought she might have forgot to take our order. As she was standing near our table doing nothing and she took a while to come over. We just sat with water glasses waiting for her to come over.

Servers were rude. Ordered the caprese salad which was good (hard to mess up) but overpriced. Also ordered the fried eggplant appetizer which was tasteless and so hard I could barely cut it. Would not recommend.

Had only been once before but it was when they had just opened and in the interim, I think there has been a significant improvement in the menu and the quality of food.

It was really cute inside, but the chicken in both my dish and my friends dish was just way overcooked. The lemon cake was yummy though.

Excellent food and very good service. Noise level a little bit over-the-top hard to even hear each other talk. The room was not even filled and the noise level was bad. Maybe because of the low ceilings? I'm sure they could do something aesthetically to bring down the noise level. Otherwise no other complaints.

We had to wait for a half hour even though we had a reservation. We could not hear each other talk due to the noise level. Will not be returning...food was just okay.

We had an excellent dinner at Arugula on a recent Friday evening. The service was very good. Despite the crowd we never felt rushed. In addition to a salad and a mushroom appetizer, we ordered 2 specials ( a fish cacciatore style and a veal chop ) and a veal entree from the menu. All were delicious! We would not hesitate to return.
The only downside is it can get quite noisy at dinner when the restaurant is full.

Overall very good food. We had a range of food from chicken Parmesan, to pasta with crab, to salmon, pasta with mushrooms and truffle oil. The Brado was quite good although huge, maybe too big, the salads were great. The only complaint I need to get to noon one is that the bread is awful.

Tucked into a small residential development right by where the PA turnpike and the Blue Route meet, which made it a great location for friends coming from different directions to meet. The lunch menu was diverse as long as arugula was on the plate somewhere. Server was properly attentive and informative. Fresh bread. BYOB. The room was very inviting, open and light, airy, good for conversation. Would go back again.
