Good solid Italian cuisine served in a relaxed atmosphere. Caesar Salad was great as were two pasta dishes. Wine was served too warm and should be stored better. Prices were very reasonable. Worthy of return trips.

I went with two girl friends for an evening out. We had a great time and the food was delicious. They had live music on a Tuesday night, which I wasn’t expecting.

This neighborhood gem is a hidden secret ! We go as many Sunday evenings and sometimes Wednesday’s when the live music is there ! The service is always great ! The food is good but for our personal taste it’s too salty ... some restaurants are like that ... we continue to return as the atmosphere is fantastic especially on the patio and service is so kind, friendly and helpful ! The patio is dog friendly which is also a great plus for us and our pup !

First visit with my husband. Cioppino is my favorite Itslian dish. The broth had just the right amount of zest - it was excellent. My husband had ossobuco that was also excellent. We will return.

The main courses were mediocre.,We could not eat the chicken parmesan as it was dry and tough. Chicken tasted as if it were precooked and reheated. One guest had eggplant parmesan and said there wasn’t enough eggplant on the plate. The pasta entree was a small portion and nothing special as was the calamari.
The sides of spaghetti on the plate with the chicken parm were dried and a very small stingy amount of sauce.
Service was extremely slow. They seemed to be understaffed. It took the waiter over an hour to just take our orders.
Deserts were the best part of the meal. Maybe they are brought in from somewhere. They need a new chef! And better kitchen supervision. We won’t be recommending to anyone till they improve their menu, cooking and service.
Also there are way too many veal dishes on the menu and bot enough fish.
The atmosphere is lovely but not worth it for such sub standard Italian fare.

Gigi treats all of her customers super well. You enter as a guest and you leave as family. The cuisine is authentic in the restaurant so well run. It is obvious the pride and love they go into this establishment.

Had a Groupon for this restaurant...when presented was told it was not for this location..the printout stated it was to be accepted at either location..pinnacle peak or thunderbird. One owner both locations.
Food was fair. Chicken dry.. milk was bad when poured in coffee.. not a pleasant experience by any means. will NOT be back.

The food was delicious and portions large. We took home some lasagna and veal cutlet parmigiana. The marinara sauce was some of the best. It was thick and rich in flavor.
We had a Groupon and it seemed once we showed it to our server she dismissed us. We got no attention, we were an afterthought as she ran by waiting on others. never asked if we’d like desert. I had to flag her down just for the check. And she mad a point of showing us the cost before the groupon so we’d tip her properly. That was rude and condescending. While we’d go back for the food I would hope we had a different waitress

We were initially the only ones in the restaurant and there was a singer in the bar area. Rolls melted in your mouth and the food was incredible. This was our 3rd time there second at this location. We would go back. Service also very good. I had the fish of the day which was trout. Seasoned very well. My wife had a beef dish that she enjoyed. Overall excellent

We’ve eaten here a number of times and have enjoyed our dinners. Our food was good but a few issues we had were our dessert was returned as it wasn’t cooked enough. It came out s second time and still wasn’t right but we let it go. There was wine charged on our bill but instead of crediting us, we were told it would come off our next bill on our next visit. ?? We declined that and ended up with a free cannoli. One thing that bothered me and some may think this is petty but we told the hostess and the server we were celebrating a birthday. Other patrons were celebrating birthdays and they had a dessert with a candle and singing delivered to their table. We got a dessert we couldn’t eat but paid for it. Little things but enough for us to try other Italian restaurants in the area.

We enjoyed our dinner at Arrivederci. The food was very good, would have love to have had canneloni on the menu! There were several specials and fresh pasta. The prices were reasonable and not to expensive. The ambiance romantic and quiet.

Our first time at this location, and we liked the menu and our food was very good. We had been frequent diners at the restaurant that was in this location, and while this menu is not as extensive, nor is the staff as well trained, we did enjoy it and will return.

The first time we visited Arriverderci we were VERY disappointed, the food was tasteless, the escargot was luke warm and poorly prepared. We tried it again with some friends on May 1st and again it was unbelievably less than 1 star. We all started the Caprese, the tomato was yellow inside on all servings, the mozzarella was waxy and tasteless. One of us had Bolognese made with way too much penne pasta ( fettucine is much better in this dish) and I had Pomodoro, very oily and the tomatoes were few and far between. The ambience is very bland and I doubt many people would visit again. We definetly never eat there again.

Fabulous meal - Veal with porcini mushrooms, Salmon lemon piccata, special of Lamb Chops. Everyone loved their meal. The noise level was higher than expected - we sat in a booth because we thought it would be quiet, but the mirrored wall next to us just reflected all the noise of the adjoining tables.
