Waitress was nice but forgot to enter our meal in the computer which delayed the entire meal and when she did the entree was a different item than i requested. The food was good. She was young maybe too busy that night
I went there for the first time and absolutely loved it. The service was great. Our waitress was very attentive. The owner, Tony, stopped by and made sure everything was good.
The food was delicious! I will definitely be going again!!!
Always good consistent food.
Excellent food and amazing service. We love this restaurant. We highly recommend hands down.
Food was delicious and fresh, wait person was attentive, items on the menu were just a little different than an average Italian restaurant
Love, Love, Love this neighborhood gem!!! Been going for years now and NEVER disappointed. It really doesn’t matter what you order, everything is fresh and delicious. I am truly happy and grateful that this family operated BYOB is surviving a pandemic.
Great meal and experience. Our server, Antonella, was amazing as always.
Great ford and service. Tables spaced out, not crowded and it's a BYOB.
OMG. Excellent service and amazing food. We were blown away, to say the least. The best Italian restaurant in Chadds Ford!!! We highly recommend it!!!!
We had not been out in awhile. It was my husband and I, my grandson and my sister and brother-in-law. We all enjoyed our meals. My grandson though there was too much butter on his spaghetti (😊), otherwise everything was perfect. Our waitress, I think her name was Kim, was EXCELLENT! We definitely would come again.
Food was delicious. Would definitely recommend to friends and family
Disturbed by lack of Covid precautions. The restaurant was close to 100% occupied by the time we had received our entrees. The food was average particularly the fried calamari which was rubbery. The gentleman who seated us was sullen and unfriendly. So overall this was not a good experience!
I had Veal parmesan with rigatoni..sauce was very good and the veal very tender..also had the pasta figol which was excellent..hubby had the pasta I gorgonzola sauce that he loved..it's a great byob..
First impression. It would be nice to be greeted by the person at the desk. The food was very good. Hot, tasty and abundant. Because it was a small restaurant, it was cold. Especially there is no inner door to avoid it.
Wonderful menu and great food - service very pleasant and attentive. Casual restaurant so the food makes up for the lack of ambiance.
Arugula is one of our favorite go to restaurants for Italian! It’s a BYOB that has an amazing menu at reasonable prices! The staff is always friendly and on point!
This is my favorite place to dine out! Food is phenomenal, service is outstanding and so friendly! I highly recommend to anyone who love Italian food! It’s a BYOB which also makes it nice!
Arugula is consistently excellent. Full menu with delicious food and friendly excellent service. Highly recommend!!
always good to go to Tony"s.
Best place I have found for several veal dishes.
Love it there.
Not your typical Italian menu. Loved the many options and a place that still does specials (diminishing in COVID times). My pasta dish with spicy red sauce was perfectly cooked and the proportions were huge! You will definitely get your money’s worth here. Extra perk is BYOB without the corkage fee. We can’t wait to return.
Overall, great place for their pastas but other options on menu were not as good. Our server was very friendly but it took about an hour and half just to get our food. They were prioritizing to go orders first rather than customers in the restaurant.
Went for a BD celebration. The server was excellent and extremely nice. The food was delicious. One thing, they needed to have steak sauce for those non pasta people. If you like BYOBs its awesome.
Tony and his team always do a great job. Authentic Italian cuisine and great service keep us coming back.
OMG. Excellent food and amazing service to say the least. Everything was perfect. We highly recommend.
We eat at Arugula fairly often and always enjoy excellent food and service!
OMG. Great food and service to say the least. We highly recommend hands down.
This auhentic Italian ristorante has great food and service. Whether you like veal or chicken or fish or pasta, Tony has something in his kitchen for you to enjoy. The prices are reasonable and it's BYOB - so fairly easy on the pocketbook. Arugula is a stand-alone restaurant that deserves our business during the difficult times created by this pandemic. All PA precautions are practiced.
Fantastic meal and great service we dine here often and always have a great experience
OMG. Great food and amazing service to say the least. Great Caesar salad and pasta. We highly recommend it hands down. We're looking forward to our next visit!!!!
Outstanding menu. Meal was delicious. Service was excellent!
One of the best restaurants in the area. Food is amazing and extremely tasteful!
Always a great dinner at Arugula!
The food is consistently delicious and the service always outstanding at Arugula. Our appetizer was the lightly fried calamari -- perfect! My husband had the zuppa di pesce, a generous serving full of a variety of seafood and served with broccoli and roasted potatoes on the side. The spinach salad -- my go-to -- full of sliced figs and candied walnuts and dressed with a citrusy hint of dressing was lovely. Alexandra did a great job serving and checking on us during our meal. A little neighborhood gem with excellent Italian food.
The food and waitress were excellent.
First time we dined here, food was very good, generous portions. Our server Alexandria was outstanding, very friendly, provided excellent service, we enjoyed ourselves
Always a pleasure to eat at Arugula Restaurant. Food is very good -waitstaff very good
A good home cooked Italian meal at a BYOB in an area with too few of these.
The polenta and spinach salad were winners as well as the bread. Ambiance is lacking with dreary lighting and bare walls.
Better than most Italian in the area and I would return.
We had a party of 11 for a birthday, we ordered everything on the menu and it was great, everybody complemented on the food and the wait staff. We will be back.
Food is consistently great! Arugula has become one of our “go to” places.
Only thing that was disappointing was the calamari. It clearly was the same as our previous visits. In fact we told our guest that it was a favorite of ours there.
Everything else was great, entrees were perfect.
