Excellent food, very good experience, just noisy. But we'd go back and liked the variety of food, the quality and the portions.
Delicious food, lots of variety in the menu and a friendly, prompt server.
Host was rude. Poor service. Food quality was average.
What a gem! This is our favorite Italian restaurant. The food is always good and service is outstanding. We have been to many Italian restaurants and this one never disappoints us. The menu is large and the dishes are delicious, varied and plentiful. I you like cannolis, you will find theirs one of the best. Give Arugala a try, you will glad you did.
Its always good food and fun at Arugula. A neighborhood favorite.
The owner is so unfriendly and rude!
The food was good and it was not overly croweded. A very enjoyable evening!
An excellent meal - good food and good, friendly service.
Food was very good and Services was excellent! Would recommend and will return.
Great dinner !
We have never had a bad meal at Arugula! We had reservations but were seated immediately> Our waiter (Thomas) was quite attentive and a joy to work with. Arugula is also a BYOB; therefore making it even more affordable.
It was Mother’s Day as the pandemic restrictions are being lifted. The staff were busy, but polite & welcoming. The food was great. I am looking forward to going back soon & would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Very good local Italian restaurant. Nice variety of menu items.
Horrible customer service!!! Front door Host/Owner/Chef was very rude and unhappy considering how booked the restaurant was. Our server (she was excellent) said he is usually like that. Food was heavy red sause, BYOB was a plus.
This was our second visit and the food was wonderful as well as the service, The prices are reasonable the the ability to bring your own bottle of wine is a real plus.
Never a better experience than eating here. Every single waitress is attentive to your every need. Love love love this place. Always a new addition to the menu and everything is super fresh.
Food was excellent as always. The waitress was vey attentive but not overbearing. We had a wonderful time and will definitely go back. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Went to arugula on a Sunday night. Wasn't very crowded the food in the service were excellent. It is a BYOB so the prices are reasonable.
Stopped in for a date night diner, driven by many times, food was good, very nice portions, taking home a doggie bag. Our waitress was very talkative and personable. Just and overall good experience. Would come again.
It’s a great place.... outstanding authentic foodand waitress for awesome. Great suggestions. BYOB and big menu- lots to choose from
Love their chicken marsala and the grilled romaine!!!!
Always a nice time at Arugula. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Arugula is at the top of our list.
Service was great. I didn't care much for my entree because it was extremely salty.
Waitress was nice but forgot to enter our meal in the computer which delayed the entire meal and when she did the entree was a different item than i requested. The food was good. She was young maybe too busy that night
I went there for the first time and absolutely loved it. The service was great. Our waitress was very attentive. The owner, Tony, stopped by and made sure everything was good.
The food was delicious! I will definitely be going again!!!
Always good consistent food.
Excellent food and amazing service. We love this restaurant. We highly recommend hands down.
Food was delicious and fresh, wait person was attentive, items on the menu were just a little different than an average Italian restaurant
Love, Love, Love this neighborhood gem!!! Been going for years now and NEVER disappointed. It really doesn’t matter what you order, everything is fresh and delicious. I am truly happy and grateful that this family operated BYOB is surviving a pandemic.
Great meal and experience. Our server, Antonella, was amazing as always.
Great ford and service. Tables spaced out, not crowded and it's a BYOB.
OMG. Excellent service and amazing food. We were blown away, to say the least. The best Italian restaurant in Chadds Ford!!! We highly recommend it!!!!
We had not been out in awhile. It was my husband and I, my grandson and my sister and brother-in-law. We all enjoyed our meals. My grandson though there was too much butter on his spaghetti (😊), otherwise everything was perfect. Our waitress, I think her name was Kim, was EXCELLENT! We definitely would come again.
Food was delicious. Would definitely recommend to friends and family
Disturbed by lack of Covid precautions. The restaurant was close to 100% occupied by the time we had received our entrees. The food was average particularly the fried calamari which was rubbery. The gentleman who seated us was sullen and unfriendly. So overall this was not a good experience!
I had Veal parmesan with rigatoni..sauce was very good and the veal very tender..also had the pasta figol which was excellent..hubby had the pasta I gorgonzola sauce that he loved..it's a great byob..
First impression. It would be nice to be greeted by the person at the desk. The food was very good. Hot, tasty and abundant. Because it was a small restaurant, it was cold. Especially there is no inner door to avoid it.
Wonderful menu and great food - service very pleasant and attentive. Casual restaurant so the food makes up for the lack of ambiance.
Arugula is one of our favorite go to restaurants for Italian! It’s a BYOB that has an amazing menu at reasonable prices! The staff is always friendly and on point!
This is my favorite place to dine out! Food is phenomenal, service is outstanding and so friendly! I highly recommend to anyone who love Italian food! It’s a BYOB which also makes it nice!
