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.

Great traditional Italian restaurant with warm, friendly and efficient service. The food is among the best I've had in the city and the atmosphere is very relaxed.

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 in 20 years and it hasn’t changed much in that time. The food was as good as I’d remembered. Overall, good value and a fun Vancouver landmark.

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.

Excellent dinner at Arriva as always. Even though it was Valentines day, and the place was hopping, everything came at the right time. Wine, appetizer, main course, dessert. This is one of the last great Italian restaurants in Little Italy.

We had a great night with friends at Arriva recently. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was very comfortable. The service was the only sore spot. After 3 hours in the restaurant, we still hadn't seen our bill or been offered coffee or dessert. We finally went and got the waiter to get our bill. Luckily he didn't try to ask if we wanted anything else or he was going to get an earful for sure. Overall though, I would still recommend the restaurant.
