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.

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.

I think this is the most underrated restaurant in Vancouver. Food and service are always amazing. I have been going here for over 25 years and the food quality has been perfect every single time. Besy Italian food in Vancouver for sure.

This is the place to go, if you want to feel like you are in Italy! Great atmosphere, comfortable dining room. Friendly, fun, professional service. All food it the freshest and beautifully prepared. Everything from meats and poultry to seafood. They obviously only buy the best meats and seafood. I have no hesitation in recommending Arriva to anyone. They welcome everyone, with an extremely varied clientele.

It's a great little place. They have a good menu - lots of choices. It's been a neighbourhood staple for several decades now. It's relatively quiet at lunchtime so I find it's a good place for business meetings.
