Great food, personal service
Would recommend this restaurant if you like BYOB .. The food and the service was great ! I will definitely be back...
Food is always very good as well as our waitress Antonella
The only problem with "ambiance" was that far too few people were there. Tables were nicely spaced, so there were no concerns for me. Just like in "the old days," the food and service were excellent.
Love the outside patio. As always food and service was great.
Excellent food and service. They have done a good job adjusting for social distancing - with both inside and outside dining. We ate inside and I felt comfortable doing so.
Even though it is in the Chadds Ford area of Pennsylvania, Arugula Italiano Ristorante is the best Italian restaurant in the area that is closest to North Wilmington.
Great food and service!
This little gem is fabulous! Delicious food, reasonably priced. Really wonderful waitstaff. Pas the word
We sat outside on a gorgeous night. Our server was so funny and nice. The food was outstanding. I couldn't recommend this place higher there isn't extra stars. I will be back and will be recommending it to all my friends.
Out first time there and we will definitely be back. Kim was great and really enjoyed our meal
Delicious entrees. Restaurant has taken all necessary precautions to keep diners safe.
Arugula is always a great experience. Dining under the twinkle lights outdoors, the food, the staff- all top notch. Everything ran smoothly and the food was delicious!
Authentic tasting food and amazing staff!
We eat at Arugula Ristorante often. The food is excellent and we always get good service from Antonella. Their pasta sauce is always consistent.
Three couples had dinner and the food was excellent. We had seafood and pasta. Delicious. Waitress was courteous and extremely helpful. One of our favorite restaurants!
Owner is rude with employees and customers. He will sink his own ship. Food is starting to go downhill.
Waitress was great, but host is gruff and gets annoyed if you ask to change tables. Food was good.
Food was average and had to send my meal back. Restaurant was crowded and service suffered because of it.
Was a disappointing experience.
Antoinetta was perfect. Busy time of night. The gang handled it well.
Food not great.
We’ve never had a bad meal at this place. It’s always delicious! We are repeat customers and we look forward to our next visit!
We went there for my wife birthday and the food was great the service was outstanding and the price was also great,we plan to go back again very soon, we walk in and the Owner took right to our table no waiting if you want a great place for dinner I would different go here, plenty of parking spaces.
Was just one big very noisy room. Pasta was literally cold. Veal was in an overwhelming liquid too lemony sauce. Service mediocre at best. Said my meal was taken by another server and I had to wait. Never going back
Our dinner for 5 was great ! Great selections, something for everyone. Service friendly and excellent. Everyone in our party enjoyed the varied items they ordered. Food fresh and flavorful. Wonderful experience.
We decided on an early dinner at this restaurant based on a recommendation from a friend. We absolutely loved everything. The setting was lovely, service was on spot and the food (and portions) was outstanding. We very much liked that the menu offers some different items than most Italian restaurants do and found that to be very refreshing. This was our first visit and we expect to visit much more often.
Full and very noisy, and our waiter confirmed that all Fridays and Saturdays are like that; some of the larger parties were especially noisy. Our waiter was proficient and speedy. But we couldn't hear him recite half of the specials because the place was so noisy. There is no sound-dampening material anywhere. My husband had veal ai carciofi and it was pretty soupy. I had veal alla Chesapeake and it came with a yellow sauce that had no saffron flavor at all (and I'm familiar with the flavor of saffron). Took a portion home, and next day the fat had separated from the sauce and didn't taste like butter or olive oil. Cooking oil, probably. We cannot recommend this restaurant very highly.
Visit after visit, whether with friends or strictly my lovely wife and family, our meals and the quality of our total experience are finest kind. Though we don't lack for appetites, we invariably bring food home, which extends the good vibe to a follow-on evening.
We are fans.
The restaurant was steady busy while we were there. This was a bit of a change for me from past visits but I was happy that there was a lot of traffic because the restaurant is fantastic and I want it to be successful. The food was, as always, delicious. The noise level despite the steady flow of customers and table turnover was manageable, and the service was excellent.
Waiter was under 21 with poor speaking skills, could not hear specials. We were 15 minutes late and owner gave us a hard time, scolded us, made us feel the table was no longer available before seating us.
Great experience!! Will return
Have not had a bad meal here. Everything on the regular menu is very good and the specials have been outstanding. A little noisy inside, but its got a positive energy about it.
The food was adequate at best.
Such a hidden gem. Food was authentic and yummy!! Our female server was from Sicily and she made our evening such a pleasure that we booked a trip to Sicily the following day!
We had a wonderful experience at Arugula, where we have eaten before. Everything from the service to the food was just great. I ordered the whole fish, which was orate and was perfectly grilled. It was filleted table side, and the server did a wonderful job. My husband ordered a veal dish and that was great quality, too. We have never had a bad meal there. The server was from Sicily and was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food. All around great evening!
Greeted by a miserable man at the desk who wouldn’t acknowledge people when they walked in. Server was wonderful and fun. Food fresh but just average. Noise level was ridiculously loud. Would consider giving it a second chance if it wasn’t for Mr. Miserable at the door.
Another great evening with friends. BYOB it's a plus
Enjoyable meal. Stuffed mushroom app special pricey for 3 caps.
We are always pleased with everything every time we go to Arugula. Great food and great service, always.
