    Aria manages to walk that thin line between high end, fine dining and casual wine bar beautifully. The restaurant has an ambience of refined, white-tablecloth dining and quality authentic Tuscan cuisine while still remaining welcoming and comfortable. Their menu is not overstuffed with dishes. Instead, they focus on only a handful of items and do them well. My Cacio e Pepe Carbonara was wonderful and the complimentary ciabatta and olive oil was delicious as well.

    We had the cheese and meat board which was wonderful. The bread that came with this was delicious! Then we had a few anti pasta dishes that were equally as good, and we were sufficiently full. Only complaint is that they served my wine in a small cocktail type glass. I really like my wine in a wine glass, but the wine selection was extensive and the prices were very good.

    We have been going to Aria for many years and have always loved it until recently. The menu has become extremely limited over time. I had the lamb shank which came with polenta and roasted carrots. I asked for spinach instead as I have a severe allergy to carrots. Management said no substitutions yet they left the carrots off my dish so they substituted anyway. It seemed like a simple, minor request and I was disappointed that they refused to accommodate. The lady at the table next to me was served a martini in a wine glass. The noise level was almost intolerable. Small things that could have been easily fixed will most likely lead us elsewhere next time. Our server was excellent and the food was still very good.

    Was taken to a very dark area upstairs with no other people (though it did fill up eventually). We were beside a window but the curtain (we opened so we could see) opened to another curtain blocking an area that appeared to be setting up for an event. When the outside event started, the music was so loud we could barely hear each other talk. Food was good. Service was ok. Probably won’t go back.

    Loved the food and the atmosphere. Was surprised that there was an upstairs but there was a bar there and service was not slowed by that location. The lamb shank was amazing as was the ricotta cake. I definitely want to return.

    We took four 6 year old girls to dinner before a show and they had a great time. Our server was great and although they don’t have an advertised kids menu, they happily do basic pastas and pizzas for kids which were a big hit. This is my first time back post pandemic and I miss their old menu. I understand they had to do a lot to even stay open but I really miss some of the old dishes like the penne vodka and paninis. I work in the Corp Center so I was a regular for the express lunch and miss that as well. Hopefully has things return to normal they can explain their menu again.

    My wife and I dined here for our anniversary and we’re not disappointed. Everything we ordered tasted amazing. My wife and I shared the meatballs and caesar salad. Both weren’t over portioned and had great taste. She had the carbonara as her main and I had the mascarpone and Gorgonzola ravioli. The ravioli were on the smaller side but were light and fresh. I tasted the carbonara and instantly wish I had ordered that. Both tasted great but the carbonara was just THAT good. We went with the special for dessert which was very detailed in description. The only thing I remember was that it was macerated peaches in an alcohol based sauce. It was unique and different. I wouldn’t order it again but it was an experience. I believe we got more of a buzz off the alcohol in the sauce than our drinks. Awesome atmosphere. We will be back again.

    Most of the dishes were excellent. Two had the duck dish and it was okay except that the amount of duck was insufficient. The tomato, peach mozzarella salad was great! The restaurant was extremely busy, however our server was unfailingly attentive. Did not catch his name, but he is from Turkey.

    A very pleasant surprise. Four of us shared various apps and entrees. Most of the selections were great--- great tastes, well prepared and presented, and good values. The lamb shank was a bit overdone (the lone exception). Great proximity -- a short walk from the conference center and the downtown hotels, if you're visiting as we were.

    Another visit to Aria with the same exceptional results, started with the mussels which were fantastic then we have GrandMa’s Lasagna and Campanelle alla Ragù both were absolutely excellent. The wait staff were top shelf, time wise as we had theater ticket, they were very knowledgeable and helpful. Looking forward to our next visit!

    Aria is a beautiful restaurant in the uptown area. There were some very loud people in the front of the restaurant, but fortunately they placed us on the second floor, possibly because of our request. The food was very variable. Caesar salads were OK. The Neapolitan pizza was quite good. The pasta Primi dish, a saffron fusilli was quite good. The Branzino Secondi was overcooked and a very small portion with too little accompanying mashed potatoes or brocolli rabe. An after dinner espresso had to be sent back as being near cold when delivered. A second cup was barely warm enough. Curiously the first cup was accompanied with a biscotti, but the second cup was not. While not a bad meal in total, it is unacceptable when with a couple of drinks, the meal and tip came to around $180. For that kind of cost I expected a first class meal with superb service befitting a beautiful restaurant.
