Service was attentive and friendly. The food is consistent and delicious. Wine list is quite extensive and able to find good wines at a reasonable price.
Wine list is good
Took friends out for their birthday. They both enjoyed their food more than I did. They had pasta and I had the veal special. Nothing wrong but nothing special either. Service was quick and good. Prices were reasonable. Nice place, will try again but order something else.
Thank you so much for a beautiful supper.. The food and service is always wonderful. It made for a very special birthday! Cant wait until I can go back again.
Antipasto is always with coming for.
We both followed up with pasta. Good choice.
Excellent recommendation on wine from Enzo.
Everyone in our lunch group was very impressed with the excellent food. Rainbow trout special highly recommended. Gluten-free pasta the best anywhere. The featured wine was most enjoyable. Pleasant ambiance combined with great service and outstanding food make this a great location for lunch or dinner.
I went to Arriva Ristorante last Friday night with a friend for dinner. I ordered the Tortelloni 'Cardinale' (Chicken stuffed pasta in a cream and tomato sauce) and it was super delicious! Definitely more filling than I expected and rich in butter/cream - I enjoyed it very much! My friend ordered the lasagna and he, too, was very pleased with his meal. We shared a bottle of wine (I cannot remember which one) and recall that it was fairly reasonably priced. Service was also fairly good - I will definitely be back!
Excellent service thank you!
Owner and staff are the best. First rate food and a wine list that is very reasonably priced. Will be my new regular go to place!
They could not find our reservation when we initially got there and said that they couldn't give us a table when clearly they had tables available. They eventually found my reservation but it was a pretty stressful start to our evening. I though the host should have been more accomodating since there were clearly tables in the restaurant and shouldn't have made us feel so badly since we had actually done the right thing and booked the reservation. Not the greatest host. Good and service by wait staff was good after though
Service was good. Would be perfect if bread was warm
Very nice experience. Feb 15, Valentine dinner. Nice and quite, good music, great food and very pleasant staff. Will be back for sure.
Great service, authentic food and amazing value!
Really good food. Went for the dine out menu and everyone in my group thought the food was excellent. We all thought all 3 courses delivered which Is quite rare from a restaurant.
Took 1.5hrs for mains and appetizers to be served. They charge for refills on pop without notice so spent $14 on Coke. Unapologetic. Waitress never checked on us while waiting for food or give us updates. Kept ignoring our table.
One of my favourite restaurants. Food is awesome and the service is always very friendly and exceptional .
Wonderful family dinner and their "dine out" special menu was delicious. Excellent serice staff and meal was great.
I decided it was time to switch from my usual order of spaghetti and meatballs (always delicious); so I had a spinach fettucini with salmon... OMG so good! The others had various seafood pastas - the shrimp in white wine sauce was "the best I've ever had". And the one who had spicy shrimp also loved his dish.
Great food and good service! Will go back for sure!
Wonderful food, the ambience was lovely i.e. the Italian flair. Hadn't been to Arriva for years and so glad I suggested my son and I go there. I/we will be back.
Classic Vancouver Italian restaurant in Little Italy. Timeless!
Very old style Italian, service excellent, appetizers, pastas and meat entree excellent, fresh, good sized portions. Excellent value as well. Definitely, return.
Good service and excellent food!
Arriva is classic Italian dining, and it never dissapoints!
Lovely, attentive service. Very knowledgeable server. Never rushed us. His good humor was a plus to the delicious meal.
Classic! Hey really good Italian fare ... awesome house wines.
Have not been there for a long time but was not disappointed, The food & service was excellant! I will certainly go back more frequently.
We were treated well and with lots of good humour on the part of the waiter. The food was well prepared and, although not especially creative in presentation, met our expectations. My friend's birthday was acknowledged with a candle but not any embarrassing display-whew! A good place to celebrate a special event, particularly for those with fairly conservative tastes in food.
We didn't have a good start because they had no record of our reservation and it took long time for our entires to arrive. The food was fine.
We have been eating at Arriva since the 1980s . That tells you something right there! Travelling in from Richmond and White Rock (1 hr drive .. traffic dependent ). Do you not remember having any bad experiences with our meals. Always tasty and plentiful .
The wine list is somewhat limited we commented to each other the last time we were there September 2017. I can still remember a few gigantic parties that took up the entire restaurant. The set menu dinners are great for it parties. I also remember my husband's big birthday when I surprised him with a rental Ferrari and a group of good friends all had dinner together. Service is excellent all of the specials are explained and I can't say enough about this restaurant is very very good
Great food. Good atmosphere. Very reasonable prices. Service was bang on. Loved the osso bucco. Will definitely go back.
Very good Italian food and an excellent wine list
This was such a lovely experience. We had the best gluten free pasta of my life and the staff were really good.
was expecting something more Italian in Vancouver's little Italy, but instead it's the same old American style Italian food, guess I gotta fly to Italy. However the taff was friendly.
Great Italian food although my wife felt her gluten free pasta was not done well. Enciphered is a great server
It's all good. Best to settle in, relax and enjoy the evening
I could eat the rigatoni with meat sauce everyday and never tire of it! Love the antipasto platter, delicious!
Great Italian food - never disappointed when we go to Arriva's Paolo normally will appear and check to see if everything and everyone is OK. He is an attentive host always. His staff are also a lot of fun and very accommodating. We have our favourite regular menu choices as we don't eat meat. However, there are lots of options for everyone. There is a private room available for
special occasions which we have used for family birthdays. This is a friendly casual restaurant that offers high-end quality and service. Great wine menu and full bar options are also available. Once you go you will become a regular like us.
Lovely Italian meal in a cozy and lively atmosphere, with friendly service.
