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.

This is one of the few 'old time' wonderful service Italian restaurants left in town where the owner comes by to say hello with a smile and an anecdote.

Very good. The server was doing the best he could, but it was very busy. They should have had more servers on.

The owner and staff were very friendly with the owner greeting me at the door and when I said my name for the reservation he remembered I had asked about parking. He asked me if I had trouble parking and I didn't as he had told me where to park before I left from home.The waiter was very friendly but did not interfere with our conversation. The food and atmosphere were also above average.

House wine was good, my wife enjoyed her dinner. My paste was good but the scallops were soggy in texture and taste was only OK.. Service was friendly relaxed but prompt and professional

I decided to take my husband out for a dinner date on Commercial Drive. We wanted Italian food and thought we'd try a new restaurant. We were surprised with how cute the environment was, once inside. It wasn't super busy, even though we had made an reservation, I'm happy we did so. We both have dietary restrictions and so I was a little nervous going in. My husband is dairy free and I am gluten free. Our server provided us with a lot of options for meals, appetizers, and specials. Clearly very knowledgeable. We got the mussels for an appetizer, mushroom and white cream sauce for my gluten free main course, and my husband got the risotto dairy free. We enjoyed a delicious half liter of Riesling. Everything we ordered paired very nicely together. We will definitely be back again. Thank you for the wonderful experience!

My favourite restaurant. Always feels like home to me. Service is super friendly and, most importantly to me, not hurried. Lovely, cozy dining room. All service staff, kitchen staff, owner and family are wonderful. I love dining out, and have tried many, many fine restaurants here in Vancouver. Many far more expensive than Arriva. Nothing beats Arriva in Vancouver. Took a friend with me for dinner, he had heard me rave about it but had never been here before. He loved it. The cooking is superb. They get it all right whether meat, poultry or seafood. Everything fresh. I have had some of my best seafood meals here, even better than some of the specialty seafood restaurants. A lot of people love this place, lots of repeat customers. Every time I come here, I recognize at least one party who I have seen previously.

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Ate too much - the only complaint. Next time, less antipasto and room to try the Tiramisu! Good wine selection & prices too.

My favourite restaurant. Sometimes with a friend, and I often dine here alone, it is that comfortable. Very nice dining room. You know it is excellent, as you see repeat clientele all the time. Lots of people/families know the owner and staff. The owner always takes time to personally visit with his guests at their tables. I love the personal service here, non-pretentious and welcoming. And a fine wine selection as well. All the food, all the time, is excellently prepared and fresh. The seafood specials are wonderful, as good if not better than some restaurants that specialize in seafood. I love to dine out, and miss it when I go somewhere else. I feel very fortunate to have Arriva to go to, just a few blocks from home. Rare these days to see such a family owned restaurant with exceptional food and service. A place where you want to take your time and enjoy fine dining.

Waitress did not ask us how our meals were, not even once. No personality actually. We were not asked if we were ready for the bill, it was presented to us. As there were multiple people, four, it would have been nice to have separate totals. The food was excellent and enjoyed by all. Nice atmosphere.
