We have been here many times, and the simple reason is that the good food is always good and the great food on the menu is always great. So when we are not wanting to take a chance on eating the free parking and easy in, relaxing and rustic interior, and easy out with fair prices makes it all work... More

We had a relaxing and pleasant lunch at Arrivederci in Hillcrest. They have some outdoor seating and a large indoor dining room. The menu is simple but has some great options, and services was prompt and friendly.

Even though it was a crazy-busy night, we were lucky to get one of the last tables available by arriving before 6:00 p.m. And, despite a full house, our order was taken right away and our food arrived faster than expected. My caprese salad and my husband's soup were the best we ever had. We shared an entree, which was... More

In Toronto, we have some really great Italian restaurants, but friends recommend Arrvederci and Tripadviser rated it very highly. Besides Hillcrest is a great neighbourhood. We start with an excellent lightly fried calamari and zucchini, crispy and delicious. I'm impressed. We also order a Caesar salad. Not particularly memorable, but it's hard to make a Caesar really stand out, but... More

We have spent two months in Italy in the past three years and Arriverderci compares favorably with the best meals we enjoyed there. We visited Arriverderci on Valentines Day and it was packed. We were pleasantly surprised at how well they handled the crowed and how the service remained so pleasant and efficient despite the crowd. We eat had a... More

With or without reservations, this Italian Bistro is always accommodating. While there is no liquor bar, the beer and wine selection is very good. The house baked bread is served with a delicious marinara sauce on the side. Quite tasty. Try the pasta with Italian sausage and meat balls for a comfort food treat. The veal piccata is very good....

VERY busy restaurant in Hillcrest. If you plan to visit around 7pm advise you to book. There was a consistent line of waiting people from 1845-1945. When you try the food you will see why. Very efficient service, considering how popular and full this restaurant is. The pasta portions are generous and we could not help notice most people left... More
