Cafe Arrivederci was founded in 1996 by Carlo Scatena. Carlo started his career in the restaurant industry at North Beach, first as a busboy, later became a waiter, then a restaurant owner. After a few years, Carlo opened his first restaurant in San Francisco- Marcello Restaurant. His success as Marcello’s restaurant owner helped him to expand and open other restaurants across the Bay Area.
Carlo opened 7 restaurants during his career. Restaurants such as La Toscana, Luca, Cafe Italia, Cafe Arrivederci, Aurora Sausalito and Aurora Novato were created by Carlo. Carlo passed in 2019 and his wife, Aurora Scatena, was leading the operations of Aurora Novato since then until 2021.
Right now the new owner Ricardo Lopez is committed to extend the heritage, tradition and great food from Cafe Arrivederci, and also bring new tools to expand the vision and reach of this San Rafael beloved restaurant.
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!
Beautifully renovated. Food delicious! Started with the house mista salad served in a large bowl...I was in heaven! Had the sea bass special. Prepared perfectly with baby artichokes and Fava beans. Excellent! Our waitress, Julia, was delightful, efficient, friendly and provided excellent service!
