Arrivederci Italian Cuisine - Pinnacle Peak Rd
Ar-ri-ve-der-ci is Italian for "see you later" Once you've eaten our fresh, authentic dishes cooked by executive chef Franco Cacace and finished your meal with our homemade limoncello, we know you'll be saying "Arrivederci!
Our sister location, Arrivederci Ristorante is located just south of Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter on East Thunderbird Rd. Our family-run restaurant has been operating for more than 18 years.
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.
Excellent food and even better service. Friendly staff,
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.
Now that snowbirds are leaving, easy to get reservations and had lovely & peaceful dinner with a great friend!
Excellent quality food with solid value. Convenient for business meeting.
I have been going to their other location for years. I really like it but this new location is the bomb! I will definitely be going back there. Food was delicious atmosphere amazing. Just had a wonderful time!
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.
They know how to run a restaurant!
Excellent pasta dishes - especially the cannelloni and Bolognese. Service was erratic - very nice server, but the staff seemed to either be overloaded or maybe under staffed. We will definitely return.
We love the food and the ambiance of Arrivederci. GG is the best hostess and makes you feel right at home as soon as you enter the restaurant we are big fans and bring all our friends and family for a fantastic Italian meal.
First time in since it changed owners, love the decor, we had a quiet table and our server was great, she was married to the chef and she really knew her menu, gave us options, it was just a great experience.
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.
Great spot. Food and service wonderful.
Absolutely spectacular dinner. This place is like a five star “Cheers.” From when you enter and Gigi greets you with a hug and always remembers your name to our amazing, warm waiter Tammy to the server Neal ( and happy other waiter John), our evening was wonderful. The food is the best in North Scottsdale. We had lamb chops, sea bass, chicken limone and a pasta primavera and gnocchi. Delicious!!!
The food at Arrivederci is delicious!
Wonderful ambiance and better than wonderful food. My veal dinner was beautifully presented and delicious.
Arrividerci continues to improve as time goes by! The halibut was superb and the piccata sauce over homemade linguini was perfection! From Gigi the personable hostess to Tami our knowledgeable wait person, the experience was as good as it gets!
Was a pleasant with a very nice setting. Loved the fresh baked bread & pesto offered. Food was good, except we were disappointed that the menu & restaurant no longer offered the lobster ravioli as 5 of us had planned to order it. So my wife ordered the fettuccine alfredo with shrimp, only came with three shrimp & the tails still unpeeled. So ether cut the tails & leave the meat in the tails or stick your fingers in the food. The lemonchelo cheesecake was fabulous! Only complaint, thought there should had a minimum of 5/6 shrimp for the price & tails removed or serve them on the side not covered in the cream sauce.
The food was wonderful and the service was too. Try the eggplant appetizer. This appetizer is worth the trip by itself. Great dining experience and they also have a great happy hour menu in the bar. The bartender makes the best drinks, including the lemon drop martini. See you soon.
A Neighborhood Treasure! We have so enjoyed this restaurant right down the street. The food is always good and the service warm and efficient. Their veal dishes melt in your mouth and the Lasagne is world class. Don't forget the dessert...the Limoncello Cheesecake and Tiramisu are definitely calorie-worthy!
Near location, same great service and food. Nearer our home so will probably go more often.
It took them 20 minutes to acknowledge us. We almost walked out. It got better from there.
Our favorite place in Scottsdale. We used to enjoy Talavera and our Club until they changed menus/chefs and sommelier’s. Went on a search for a new “go to “ restaurant. This is it! The food is extraordinary and up to our East coast and LA five star standards. Finishes include capers, artichokes, leeks, lemons and white or red wine. And the lamb, Bronzino and pastas are out of the world. And, the best part is the service. From Gigi to Tammy to John, Larissa and Neal— they go the extra mile to make everything perfect. It is truly a “cheers” environment where everyone know our name.
Very good, we’ll be back. Service was great, almost too fast!
We love this place. The food is great. The cocktails are great and everyone is so friendly.
The service was very good and they were very accommodating with requests to split a salad and altering the entree to suit.
Dinner here is always good. It is one of our favorite places to take friends.
Food was ok. Fried calimari was too greasy. They did not provide lemon. Had to ask for it. The main meal was ok. Nothing that I have to go back and have again. Dessert was just ok, again. I don't think I will go back. There are too many better Italian Restaurants to go to. No reason to settle for less. The server made a mistake at our table, and 2 other tables near us. He needs to pay attention and write the orders down!
Thank goodness the food was delicious. We will be back to give them another shot, but upon arriving for our 6:30 reservation, there were several other groups with reservations for the same time. The unprofessional hostess was not taking down names in order of arrival, just kept repeating that they were full and would seat people when they had the availability. It wasn't until the manager (who I assumed to be the manager) took over that things started to improve, slightly. We went to wait in the bar and there was a table there and we were told it was for those with reservations. We ended up taking it with the "approval" of the hostess. I will recommend because both food and drinks were great - but they definitely need to work on their reservations and overall service.
Great food nice staff took out of town friends nice evening 😎
A perfect place. Service outstanding and food was great as always
this is second time we ate there and found the food to be fair at best, not like the first time. the service, though was very good.
We enjoyed our evening very much. We love the Arriverderci location at Kierland and wanted to try this newer location. We were pleased - the menu was very similar and the dishes that we had were as good as the other location. The service was very good, attentive and friendly. The surroundings are very nice, a bit more upscale that the other location. We had dinner before an Arizona MusicFest concert which was walking distance from the restaurant, we let them know and they were mindful of our time.
Just as good as the original location. Atmosphere is more sophisticated. Management and staff as warm and friendly as the original. We'll be back and back.
We had a wonderful experience. The Hostess could not have been nicer or more helpful. The bartender was excellent and our waitress was great! The only issue of the whole night was the noise level. It was difficult to hear across the booth because of the noise level. Otherwise, perfect.
Very nice dinner. Our waitress was superb and very friendly. Will definitely go back again!
Delicious veal Marsala and pasta! Plus, the waitress was very helpful with selecting an excellent bottle of Valpolicella!
