Great food and environment. Went on Valentines Day so service was a little slow but did not want to hold that against them in the review. They handled the volume very well and based on how they managed, I would only assume top notch service any other night. Complementary Champagne was an added bonus! Food truly was authentic and extremely tasteful.

Arrivederci was a pleasant surprise to us this past fall, when we were actually headed to another place in the same courtyard. We had no reservations and the other restaurant couldn't accommodate us, so we wandered further and happily found Arrivederci! Gigi greeted us as if we were family; Rafael, our waitperson, was outstanding in his knowledge and recommendations; and the rest of the staff could not be more cheerful and welcoming. The pesto dipping sauce for the rolls is delicious. (Butter upon request.) Their menu is varied and everything we have tried has been outstanding. We have been back several times, and have recommended Arrivederci to others, all of whom have given it the highest praise.

The food was very good. The service was ridiculously slow. We waited over an hour for our entrées to come. The bad part about it was they didn’t even know that we never got our meal. The server came back to clean up our silverware and we hadn’t even received our meal. 15-20 minutes is fine, 30 minutes is slow. 45 minutes is ridiculous and over an hour is absolutely insane. Try that one time. They gave us a free dessert. They should’ve comped our meal or at least a sincere apology from the manager. I finally asked the hostess if they lost our order and she returned five minutes later to simply say no they have not. No apology just a curt “no they have not”. Like it was normal that you would wait an hour for your meal. We wont return.

A great restaurant with wonderful food. Service is always good, but this time we had a server named Gigi and she was magnificent! Very responsive to our requests, checked on us often and was extremely personable without being in our face every minute. We will definitely return.

As a vegan (going to dinner with my husband and friends who are not vegan)I don’t expect that the menu would be overwhelming vegan friendly, however when a soup is listed as vegetable minestrone, the broth should not be chicken based. When I ask for pasta primavera and request less pasta and more veggies, I also don’t expect a full bowl of pasta floating in oil with some veggies around the bowl rim.
I was disappointed with the quality as well as the loud environment due to the tables being jammed together to fit more tables. Overall a disappointing dining experience.

We were seated in the back corner even though the restaurant had few patrons when we arrived. Wait staff not very attentive. We had to ask for bread 3 times before it arrived and then had to ask for butter 3 times. Water glasses were never refilled. Had to ask twice for that.

My penne with a vodka tomato cream sauce was great as well as the Cannoli we enjoyed after dinner. Service was a little slow, but it was a busy night.

Excellent food & service. Noisy, but I guess that just shows how popular this restaurant is! We were inside and when we return, may try the patio for a quieter experience.

Unfortunately we were not able to eat at restaurant on New Year eve. The restaurant over booked due to one party continually adding on to their party. This caused many guests with reservations to leave and eat at a restaurant in the same plaza. Very disappointed.

We arrived at 6:45 for a 7 :00 reservation on New Years Eve. We were told we could have a table immediately on the patio & there were lots of heaters out there. We said we would wait for our table in the main dining room. She told us they were clearing a table & it would be reddy soon. The waiting area was over flowing with people waiting to be seated. At 7:15 I asked about the table they were clearing for us. I was told they had a party of 24 people to seat before us and they needed 6 tables of 4 to leave. Reservations for 7:00 were walking out because of the wait for the party of 24. At 7:45 they pushed a table for 4 into the isle and said we could have that. I said 6 people cannot eat at a table for 4. They then brought out another table from a store room to put next to the table for 4.
When they grout the menu we realized that it wasn’t the regular menu. Limited choices with high prices. We ordered drinks and food. The food came before the drinks and several members of our party sent them back. Some of the food was cold and had to be sent back.

I realize New Years Eve is a very busy night but this was the worst experience I’ve ever been on that night. If a restaurant is going to accept a reservation fo a party of 24 they need to have a private dinning room and be properly staffed to handle the business.

We have been a patron of their restaurants for over 17 years but I doubt that we’ll go back very soon if at all.

Our first time here and very happy with the whole experience. We went on Christmas Eve and were originally seated in the bar - we were hoping for a quiet dinner, and they were very gracious in finding us a booth in the dining room. Great food, attentive service and overall a very pleasant evening! We will be back.

Pretty disorganized from a service point of view. Food was very good and the wait staff worked very hard but they couldn't cover all the table which made for a 2hr dinner which it shouldn't have been. Very good food though.

The food was great. My only problem was that I made a reservation for a specific time and they did not have a table for me. I had to sit in the bar. My only query is, what is the purpose for reservations if the restaurant can't accommodate the reservation?
