Went to this restaurant at lunch for the first time under new management with my husband. We both loved the food. We were sharing Pappardelle Con Funghi (Wide ribbon pasta, roasted mixed mushrooms, white wine, Calabrian chilies, arugula, pecorino) and Melanzane Alla Parmigiana (Breaded eggplant, mozzarella, parmigiana, marinara) and they were delicious! The restaurant had a good vibe. The staff was nice and friendly. We’ll be back again!

I love this restaurant! Great food and wonderful service. I hosted an event there recently on their outdoor patio, and all the staff were so incredibly helpful and made things run so smoothly! Julia, the event coordinator for the restaurant, is a dream to work with! She was on top of every detail, super responsive during the months long planning process, and made the day very special. I will absolutely hosts more events at Arrivederci!
