Went for the first time the day after Valentines Day. Asked for seating for 2, was asked if I had reservations and answered no, I didn't know that I needed reservations. Older hostess replied "WE HAVE NOTHING FOR YOU" rude tone. We will never go back

This is fine dining at its best. Not only is the food great and the atmosphere swell, but the chef comes by singing La La La and checking on you... Get the sampler for dessert - WOW!

The seafood Fra diavolo was outstanding. Some of the best sauce I've ever ate and the seafood was cooked perfect. Wonderful atmosphere and good service. A little expensive but well worth it.

Ordered the Calamari very tough and not done right. Ordered the Lasagna and I've had better from Stouffer's or generic frozen lasagna from Wal Mart. My 2 dinner companions had the mussels and they both were disappointed. Given how bad the food was my companions ordered each 2 glasses of wine. For the house wine they said it was ok... More

Good Italian restaurant, nice menu options, tasty food, and prompt service. Our very tall waiter was a bit loud and overwhelming, but with some good coaching from management, might learn to tone it down a bit.

Visited Ariani for my wife's birthday and had a great meal. The menu is very varied and everyone loved their selection. Mine was crab stuffed tilapia and it exceeded my expectations. My wife had the chicken Ariani and said it was the best. The wine selection was very good for a restaurant of this size and reasonable. The bread served... More

Lived here for 30 years but got to know it just two years ago through our accountant, who is a total fan of it for over 25 years. A Tuesday and packed full. That alone is significant. It is Italian and as in Italy; noisy - but - unbelievably superb!

Decent service, nice appetizers. Then it fell apart. I'll keep this brief. Not interested in giving it time. My wife and I were there 2 years ago with another couple and really had a great experience. So on this visit to Cape Coral recommended it to our friends. The other lady ordered salmon and received bass. The waiter couldn't understand... More
