Okay!!

I went to this restaurant on my special day with my friend, the service was great and even though they were packed, they found a table for us. The food was very authentic Italian and it tasted beautiful. It is also a very romantic place for couples to dine at a good priceif you want. Overall a very good place.

As always the food and service was excellent. It’s also nice that they remember us, and even call my daughter by name.

Having dinner at this restaurant, as a friend of mine once said, is like reading a book. I often go here alone, yet I am never lonely. The entire staff is so engaging and friendly, I cannot imagine how anyone would not feel at home. There is also such a varied clientele, many of whom have been coming to Arriva for decades. The place is a lot of fun, very entertaining at times, due to the friendly nature of staff and patrons. Don't come here if you are in a rush! Not that the staff will not try to accommodate you, but everything is really made fresh, to order. The quality of their food is second-to-none, including the seafood. Usually I come here at least once a week. I would be totally lost without Arriva!

We have not been to Arriva for about 15 years but the service and food remains great as we remembered it. Parking is a challenge although we just found out about some at the back of the restaurant. We will return soon.

This the only Italian restaurant that has kept us coming over the past 20 years... The food is amazing, and the service is fantastic. We sat on the back patio for the first time, lovely.

My favourite restaurant. Wonderful, fresh food, everything prepared to order. This is not the place to come for a fast meal! Nobody will ever hurry you. Seafood as good if not better than specialty seafood restaurants. Very personable and professional staff. Lovely warm dining room atmosphere, no noisy music. Very popular with all types of clientele, all ages. Many of the clients have been coming here for years and years. Would highly recommend to anyone.

This is the 2nd visit to Arriva and I look forward to the next. Good food, thoughtfully prepared, great service and a very reasonable price point. Where restaurant chains may have shiny bells & whistles, Arriva has heart & soul.

As usual food was excellent. Service was a bit disappointing. Waitress kept rushing us to order and then practically abandoned us after. Never checked on how our meals were or anything else. When the bill cams waited 15 minutes to pay and finally had to flag down the owner.

Hadn't been there for over twenty years. Food remains very good and traditional, wine list is still extensive and reasonably priced, as are the meals; and the service can not be beat. Totally enjoyed the evening. Will be back soon.

Our server was so sweet, but our initial arrival could have been better. I didn't feel very welcome. There was no host or hostess and finally a couple of busy unsmiling servers came by and brought us to our table. After that our server made up for it because he was very nice. The fresh mozzarella with tomatoes and basil was delicious but seriously, a teeny tiny piece of basil that lasts only one bite of it was not sufficient. For 12.50, they can set least give us an entire leaf! The cheese and spinach tortellini was delicious and the house red wine was exactly what i was craving. All in all, i would go again.
