Too loud to hear the person at your table.

Appetizers were good. We had eggplant and antipasto. Everyone else at table seemed to like their entrees; gnocchi Gorgonzola, penne Sofia and capellini Amalfi. I had the cavatelli fungi. It had no flavor and was very dry. Overpriced at $22. Decent dessert selection. I opted out but did enjoy the cappuccino. Service was mediocre. They did not seem that busy but saw little of our waiter, perhaps they were understaffed. This is my second trip here and had similar service experience on first visit. Overall a bit pricey for an average dining experience

Food was good but I wish the server had told us that 1 pizza was more than enough for 2 people to share! We each ordered one and it was way too much! I brought mine home and had 2 more meals!

Atmosphere was lovely, very warm and inviting, the Bruschetta, calamari griglia and pollo Romana were all delicious! The veal entree that my husband ordered, vitello saltimbocca was bland. Kids personal pan pizzas were large enough for my 2 son, 7 and 9 to share.

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!!

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.
