The food overall was very good, especially the veal chop and Pork osso bucco special. The crab cakes appetizer special was disappointing, and only contained a small amount of crabmeat and were mainly breadcrumb filler. Server Rebecca was fabulous and always checked in with us. Prices were increased quite a bit so just be prepared. All in all Aroma is a place we’ll always come back to.

Dinner was very good Caesar’s salad was bland not enough dressing. The food was fairly priced. But it took longer then expected we had to rush our eating to make the show.

We had a group of six, and everyone had loved the meals that they were served. The only reason that I did not give this restaurant a full 5 stars is because, although we had made reservations and the restaurant was not very busy, they somehow found it to be appropriate to shove us in a corner of the restaurant where half of our group was pushed up against a wall. If any one had to use the restroom, two other people would have to shimmy out of their seats just for that to happen. It's a fairly rooms restaurant and I could see spots where our group could have fit that would have been more appropriate, so I didn't understand the reasoning for not better accommodating us.

It must be a place go because we bumped into our next door neighbor and their guests. The restaurant itself has a nice ambience. We did make reservations as it was the weekend. One thing I would suggest to the chef, our ravioli dish had too much sauce…..it was fabulous but I felt the excess sauce overpowered an otherwise perfect dish. My chicken Francesca was one of the best I have been served in a restaurant in a very very long time. Kudos to the kitchen staff.

I ordered the Chilean sea bass which came to me in a very very small portion. Someone else in our group ordered the same selection and the Chilean sea bass for her serving was three times the size of mine. I was told that the portions were weighed. It was a ridiculous statement. I was given another serving but the Chilean sea bass was undercooked and was very chewy. It was a disappointing meal.

Be careful, though, there’s a table in the back that’s literally right at the fully open door to the kitchen and the hostesses want you to sit there. No one would EVER be ok with this table. We spoke up and had a different and very nice table instead.

Not the best tiramisu I’ve ever had, but our companions loved their dessert. 10/10 overall though, would definitely recommend and will be back for sure

Same wonderful food but much more serene ambiance. Chef Arian (sp?) consistently delivers top-quality, scrumptious dishes. Lobster ravioli in blush sauce was a huge hit with our friends, and I loved my veal piccata while my husband savored the bronzino. We also shared the arugula beet salad, which was kindly split into two dishes before serving. Rebecca is a delightful server… totally on top of every detail and pleasant beyond measure. Added to all this, it’s a BYOB!
