Arabellas is a beautiful restaurant, quaint, located in the downtown historic area of our city. The food is delicious and a wonderful place to visit when you want to celebrate BIG! There's even a piano man who takes requests too.

If you are wondering what to do on date night... Arabellas is the answer and while they do take walk-ins, I would advise you to make reservations. Enjoy the steak, Veal-Parm, the Imported wine, and more. (They even imported a case of our favorite just for us). The Pianist plays a black baby grand while also able to play the... More

Classic Italian menu in elegant setting. Excellent wine list. Loads of attention from servers and manager. Great selection of Veal dishes. First class pasta. Bruschetta is a great starter. Leisurely pace, never felt rushed. Experience was equal to any big city Italian Bistro. Pricey but worth the price. Strongly recommend for special occasions.

Great food, the best service, along with live music. The bar is next door and it is the best "cheers bar" in town. Food is superb.

Never had a bad meal and always feel like family. Excellent food and wine in calm environment. Excellent Italian food and wine with desserts that are worth the calories.

Our party of 4 visited on Friday evening the 31st of March. Table 13 at around 9PM Maybe we should have been there on April fools day. Have been to this restaurant on several occasions and although they are a little pricey for sunny Winter Haven, you could usually count on great food, ambiance and service. First, let me say...

We had a group of 55 for a rehearsal dinner. We are from out of town and I had been to Arabellas and had a wonderful meal prior to the event, but you always wonder how that will translate to a large group. It was outstanding!! Guests were still searching us out to comment on their wonderful experience days after... More

We have eaten at Arabellas for both lunch and dinner and both dining experiences were great! They offer a full bar and piano music for evening dining. There were tables to sit outside if you wanted. The noise level was low and our waiter was very attentive. We are definitely another visit next month!

I had been looking for a special place for my wife's birthday. Arabella fits the bill. Wonderful food, lovely piano dinner music, and an overall upscale atmosphere. We'll be back soon!!
