The food was excellent, however we had a reservation and still waiting over 30 . mins for our table. This was frustrating- why make a reservation if you can't honor it? The wait staff was fast and friendly.

We were promptly seated on a busy Valentine's Day eve. Staff was very nice and the food was incredible. We sat at a table close to the window that had a view of a busy street but that wasn't a problem as the food and inside ambiance was adequate. We would definitely come back!

My husband and I met friends for dinner and none of us had been to Arugula before. I loved the atmosphere and felt almost like I was in Italy. The serving staff I met all had wonderful accents. Our server, Ardi, was fabulous. He explained everything we had questions about and explained the specials. I thoroughly enjoyed the salad special, a fig salad with arugula and goat cheese. Nice portion size, so I was able to split it with my husband (although I wanted the whole thing!). I had the Branzino and it was the best I've ever had. Very light, flaky, and delicious. It was served with a side of outstanding green beans with almonds and grilled polenta. All six of us enjoyed everything we ate, including the two desserts we shared: a chocolate cake and a Limoncello cake. We all left talking about how wonderful the evening was, and are looking forward to returning. Thank you for an amazing evening!!

I’m never disappointed with the food here. I have dinner with friends about 6 times a year. Fabulous food. Homemade pastas. Great flatbreads and it’s a BYOB!

The food was wonderful, and there were many menu options. However, the service went from adequate to terrible as the evening progressed. We went for a late seating and the service deteriorated as the restaurant emptied. One would think service would improve! Also the noise level was extreme. I feel the restaurant is worth trying again to see if the poor service was an isolated instance.

Every time I come here, I think why don't I come more often? The ambience inside is ok, it could be a little nicer and the noise level is over the top, however, the service is excellent. They do not rush you. The food comes in big portions and is delicious and the prices are what I expect. It's a great restaurant to have in the area.

Definitely would have given 5 stars had we not waited AN HOUR past our reservation time...it was a Friday, it was busy, I totally get waiting a few minutes. However the waiting area was totally packed shoulder to shoulder with every party complaining about the wait. They clearly overbooked their reservations, and to me that's not acceptable.
Once we finally got seated an hour later, everything was great. Great service, delicious food and amazing desserts. I've been here before with no issues, so I'll give it another shot.

Food very strong. We had a variety of their food which ranged from exceptional to average. The meatball appetizer was most creative and tasty, the Gorgonzola salad was delightful, the burrata only fair at best and poorly dressed and the chicken Parmesan very average. The bread was good and the desert looked amazing too. So we will return. That said The service was fair at best, our waiter was a bit arrogant and slow but the auxiliary staff was quite good. Finally the ambience was the worst. They take what could be an interesting venue and create a nondescript, one step removed from a pizza place space with little redeeming quality and Make it worse with a noise level that was ridiculous.

I’ve been here 3 times in the past 2 weeks with different groups. All were highly pleased with food and service. I’ve tried multiple items on the menu, all equally freshly prepared and delicious. The grilled salmon over sautéed broccoli rabe and pappardelle pasta were my favorite dishes.

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.
