I'm Italian and I love this restaurant! We've been multiple times and we've never had a meal we didn't love. Each time, the service is professional and friendly, the food is outstanding, and the atmosphere is warm and inviting!

Went on a quiet Wednesday early dinner time. The restaurant could be difficult to find if unfamiliar with area. Fortunately, having seen a photo on WAVS GPS I found it easily on a dark, winter's evening. Wonderful ambience, Tuscan theme, faux stone and marble throughout, toasty fireplace and comfy sofa benches made you just want to sit down and enjoy... More

We tried AriBella tonight for the first time & found every was perfect! Service was friendly & attentive. Arugula & Caprese salads were fresh & nicely dressed. Hubby enjoyed his linguine vongole, made with larger clams than you usually find. My veal chop (with broccoli rabe-yum!) was beautifully grilled, perfectly seasoned, and extremely tender. We will definitely return-bringing friends next... More

Great food and service. A little pricy. Has outdoor seating as well. Try the grilled romaine salad and penne vodka. My favorites. Enjoy the ambiance.

Sit on the stone patio in the summer or fall or in front of the fireplace in the winter. Make sure to check the daily specials for some good eats. Pasta dishes are great. NY Strip was delish! Good service. A tad pricey but worth it. Suggest you make a reservation as they never seem to thrilled when we just... More

I have been there a couple of times and have always had excellent food. I even did take out with my daughter a couple of years ago. She really liked her dish. I liked mine also. It was over 2 years ago and I can't remember what I ordered and neither was my daughter. Service was very good.
