Very good Italian Restaurant! It's BYOB so that helps keep the outing $'s down. I would definitely go back and would recommend it highly. I had the spinach stuffed chicken breast with a marsala type gravy. It came paired with mashed potatoes as well a vegetable medley. My son had the mushrooms and pasta for a vegetarian Choice. Both were very good.

We love bringing friends to Arugula who haven't been yet to see their reaction with the wonderful food and service we have become accustomed to each and every visit.

Look forward to returning soon.

Dependable, consistent local Italian fare. Nothing is memorable, but everything is solid. Pricing is a value for portion size. Outstanding service for a party of eight. We will remain regulars.

My wife and I enjoyed a very tasty lunch, including an antipasto we've never had before - scallops with seared garlic, asparagus, arugula and cannelini beans in a white wine sauce. We may try to recreate it at home and include it on the menu for Christmas Eve dinner.

We had four different entrees and we all enjoyed three of four of the dinners. The chicken parm was just okay. The bread and bruschetta at the table were both excellent. Will probably frequent again but will not get the chicken parm.

We really enjoyed our second time to this restaurant. Unfortunately, the noise level was so high that we were not able to talk to each other at the table. Restaurant should look into some ways to lower the noise level. Someone suggested adding table cloths to buffer some of the noise.

The place had two tables of really loud individuals . Several bottles of wine lay on top of these tables and I could every word of both tables' conversation. The food wasn't as good as the previous times I remember. The shrimp was way over cooked and the sauce was the strangest taste I've had in a long time. This used to be my favorite place to go, I hope it is not going downhill

Veal medallions were too thin, bread was terrible, vegetables over cooked, salads ok, fish cooked properly, atmosphere noisy and cafeteria like. Average all the way around, except for service which was better than average. Would not recommend.

We loved it. Presently surprised. Arugula Salad, the long hots with prosciutto and cheese both yummy... risotto with veal sausage really tasty. And the lemon tart cake topped it off. We will be back.

Arugula is a fun restaurant with very delicious food. I ordered the fig salad which was unique and delicious, and the penne pasta à la vodka which was so delicious that I ate the whole thing! Usually I bring home a doggy bag but I finished everything !!

I've eaten here many times and it's always wonderful. The artichoke appetizer was beyond delicious, didn't want to take the last bite.
The service was disappointing, had to make any request at least twice.. This hadn't happened before so won't stop me from going back.
I've taken many friends here for the 1st time and they always return
