    We made bar reservations, our bartender was Kai. He was amazing. He was energetic. He was creative. Gave strong recommendations on food great conversation and his drinks are absolutely amazing. The food was spectacular. We had the grilled octopus carpaccio an order of the meatballs and the poached Pear, Gorgonzola, and honey for starters I can’t even begin to explain the flavor explosion of everything we had it was top-notch! we were never rushed. We had drinks in between orders of food. We ended up splitting an entrée of the blackened shrimp and saffron risotto, which was so creamy and spicy and wonderful. I haven’t tasted that much flavor in a while for dessert. We had the tiramisu my husband had an espresso-old-fashioned, and I had the espresso martini with the house made Italian whip cream on top. we don’t get very many chances to go out on a date night after a million years of being married plus with the cost of everything these days we really make our choices with a lot of care nothing worse than dropping $$$on a meal sucks, but I would come back here again and again just to try different things on the menu, five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ all the way!

    The drinks were small and very expensive. 4 drinks 65.00. The food was ok, not very Italian, no Caesar salad or blue cheese dressing. Not to excited to go back right away maybe in the future. Our tastes may be different from others

    Another good evening at AR! A business dinner this time. Food was great. Service even better. It was a quieter night being a week day. Everyone loved the food and ambience. Will be back soon enough! A real hidden gem in Mooresville!

    It was our first time and I had made this reservation cause we were celebrating my husband’s bday which I indicated when I made the reservation and would’ve been nice for some type of acknowledgment. The drink I wanted castagnaccio the waitress said that the bar could not make it cause they were out of the ingredients on a Saturday. I ordered the vinnies vendetta but the skull glass it came in wasn’t easy to enjoy my drink and had to sip it from a straw even though it was presentable. We were seated at the tables close to each other which I requested for more privacy (near the windows to left as you walk in would’ve been ideal) but in our situation they’re weren’t any other guests so that was fine. If we make some type of suggestions when making a reservation it would be nice if it was taken into consideration. There is some type of ventilation issue from the kitchen cause it was a little smoky.

    Poor service from the start. Ordered wine and was offered decanter which I said yes to. Poured wine without using decanter. While wine was poured into glasses, wine dripped al down bottle and onto table, server saw but did not wipe up. We had to ask later to clean it up. Then brought decanter with water in the bottom of it. Sent decanter back, wine was fine without it. Appetizer (calamari) took 35min to arrive, no communication about delays. Dinner steak ordered med-rare and came very very rare. Took a while to get steak back and was still undercooked. Again, poor/no communication during the long waits. Been here a couple times before and all was good. Things were off on all levels at this visit and I would be hard pressed to return any time soon.

    My wife and I were shocked how good the restaurant was. We had no expectations and it blew a us away. The Saltimbocca was the best I ever had. I never used a knife to cut it. We can’t wait to get back there.

    We have been dying to try this restaurant and it lived up to everything we thought it would be! Our waiter was so helpful and spoke fluent Italian. His knowledge of all the dishes and recommendations were great. We will definitely be coming back soon. I had the pappardelle with mushroom sauce, the flavors were outstanding and the truffle was just enough to tell it was there but not over powering. My husband had the chicken with Gorgonzola and he loved it!

    The restaurant was beautiful! From the aroma of the kitchen, to all the decor! It was like spending an evening in Italy! The staff was over the top In customer service, and the owner took time to personally greet us, and make sure our experience was nothing short of perfect! They even gave a staff signed birthday card to my husband, for his birthday! We live about 6 hours away, but plan to make this a must stop, on our next visit! Kim & Matt, from New Martinsville! 🙂

    We had a lovely meal here. We started w/ the fried buratta which was delicious. We each had a pasta dish. The pasta with mushrooms and truffle was to die for, so rich and delicious. We ended with the chocolate cake. Marty our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and did a wonderful job. Manager and busser were also lovely and on top of everything. We’ll be back!
