If you're looking for a dining experience without being rushed, this is the place to go. Arabella's offers refined Italian fare in an elegant atmosphere. Probably the best Italian/Mediterranean restaurant in the area.

I highly recommend Fiocci, a Pear and Gorgonzola pasta. It is not always on the menu but ask the waiter for it. The service is wonderful, especially Michael. It is an upscale restaurant; however, prices are reasonable.

Had 2 separate dinner experiences here in last 3 weeks. Celebrated an anniversary of friends, and celebrate daughter's wedding (1 week after). Wonderful food experience with top notch Rib-eye steaks, Tortellini's and Shrimp dishes around. Cocktails were quickly delivered, cold and spot on. The added piano player that solicits your play list is nice added touch. Top both dinners off... More

We have been a fan of Chef Italo Cassini for more than 30 yrs. His cuisine and presentation are outstanding. His recipes are delicious old world, authentic Italian. The restaurant is lovely, with that same old world atmosphere. We have enjoyed many, many parties and events at Arabella's and plan to continue. It is a 5 star.

Arabella's is a beautiful restaurant with delicious food and welcoming ambiance. There was a wonderful piano player when we were there, but since we dined on a Saturday night I don't know if he's there daily or just on weekends.I had the burrata and tomato special appetizer and chicken marsala entree, and both were fantastic! Everyone in my party loved... More

What a treasure to find for a lunch. Like the best of "Little Italy" in small town Florida. Mike was our server and was excellent. Tried eggplant rigatoni and Lasagne and both were excellent. Draft beer selection from Florida was good and wine selection and service was outstanding. Finished with cappuccino and double express and both were magnificent. Finished with... More

We live in Winter Haven and dine here at least several times in a month. Food is always perfectly prepared. Wine and cocktails never disappoint. However we had a server Friday night and last night that might need a refresher course on service. Lots of lag time even for Arrabella's. Forgot one in the party was celebrating a birthday. Which...

Winter Haven is truly blessed to have a magnificent establishment that cares so much for its patrons. From dinner, to the live musician, and the extravagant show that diners enjoy with the food, there's really nothing left undone. Special just begins to describe this place. If you're not too worried about the price, or are willing to try a very... More

Really wowed her! Everything was so perfect! The waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and was able to make the evening great. Everyone helped me ask her to marry me! Even the guests at the next table were amazed.
