Just spent a wonderful evening for dinner at Arriva. From the time we walked through the doors, until leaving, we were extended exceptional service. Four of us all ordered different dinners and each one was delicious and served hot. Great experience!

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.

We introduced our friends to Arriva. They walked in and were surprised by the size of the restaurant and impressed by the authentic decor and colour choices. Our server knew the menu very well and offered suggestion and modifications to the menu to accommodate people’s preferences (no hot spicing to a spicy dish). He commented on the regional variations of Italian food and authentic flavours. Each one of us was very impressed with our food choices- all served with good presentation and good portions. It was very relaxed atmosphere and our conversations flowed easily- the background music was on but not intrusive. We all promised to come back. Shawn Mason

From being seated to finishing dessert, the service was courteous, professional and attentive. Everything I could ask for. The food was presented well on the plate and delicious with every bite. IF I had a cherished Italian grandmother, she would have been proud to made this food. The atmosphere is the restaurant was warm and inviting. Arriva is now my go-to restaurant for homemade, delicious Italian food and an excellent dining experience.

We have been coming to this restaurant for Year's We have never had a bad experience. The food is excellent and is the most consistent and fresh I have ever experienced. The service we've had is next to perfect. They must really like our family because they please us every time. Hats off to the owner Paulo and his Sons.

The atmosphere is as Italian as it gets in Vancouver. Quality of food is outstanding, everything: pasta dishes, veal, chicken lamb, pork, beef etc and the best, freshest seafood. I have been coming here since mid 80s, and still the same chefs in the kitchen, same owner and family, and many of the same servers. This is not a trendy place. A very comfortable dining room, with a casual and friendly atmosphere. Extremely varied clientele, many families who have been coming here for decades. I love this place! I even come here some evenings for just a cocktail or dessert and coffee.
