Ariano changed its menu emphasizing larger (pricier) meals instead of appetizers and flat breads that made the restaurant unique. Last night I tried a blackened grouper that was just inedible. The fish was covered (swamped) with a sickeningly sweet sauce that had hot peppers mixed...More

Ariano is always a delightful dining experience. Food, service and atmosphere are all very good. The portions are very generous; I usually take home half of mine. Their gelato is especially wonderful. I find their prices to be reasonable, too.

Not good for older folks. Two flights of stairs to the main dining room. Food was fair. Noise level is off the charts.

Really like it here, it's small but the food is always good. Try the Eggplant Parm, it's the best ever! It's located off of State Street right across from the parking garage.
