Good food, good service, nice neighborhood restaurant. The noise level is high which makes conversation a little more difficult.

Our First time. Nice. a little loud on a Saturday night. Pasta was awesome. Fresh. The veal dish was a little tough but I'd try it again. The Tiramisu was one of the best EVER!! Certainly going back!! Nice spot!!

Our pizza, while tasty, arrived cold. My panini of veal was dry and boring, but y friends enjoyed their pasta. Dessert was very good. over priced.

Not a good experience. We started with the flat bread and it was very doughy, needed to be cooked longer but that was actually the best part of the meal. We ordered the veal arugula and the veal had no taste and the veal actually curled, appeared to me like it was old. Also ordered the veal Milanese and again the veal tasted old and not fresh, maybe ate a quarter of it. Rarely do I leave a bad review but this just was not good.

We have always had great meals at Arugula. We love the food and the service is great. The fact that it’s a BYO is an added bonus.

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.

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.

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.
