Yet another faux Italian restaurant in the Cape. I knew walking in. It lacked that smell......you know, that mix of garlic, basil, oregano.......that unmistakable smell. With the ratings and chef's credentials (?) we had high expectations. Don't get me wrong, it was good quality food....More

Several couples had Valentines dinner at Ariani for the second year. Again, the food was amazing and our waiter was great. The chef visited our table. The décor is upscale and the restaurant is quiet. Perfect for conversation. The price reflects the quality but not...More

We called ahead for reservations and were seated immediately. We ordered an antipasti for our appetizer, the meats were fresh and tasty. We then ordered managotti which was probably the best we ever had. The crapes were very light as was the gravy. Our server...More
