We had a wonderful dinner at Cafe Arrivederci. The food was wonderful. I loved the Salmon but everything we ordered was great. I would return if I were in San Rafael.

A fabulous birthday dinner was had by birthday boy and all in the outdoor dining. The escargot and butternut squash raviolis were their usual great followed by a delicious tiramisu.Plus we had the honor of Omar, the best, as our server.

Can't understand why it had 4.5 stars. The calamari appetizer was bland. We had the pasta with seafood and the chicken marsala. Chicken was just ok. Ate half the pasta dish and didn't bother to take the leftovers home. That's very rare for us.

I had good lunch experience. I ordered Fettucine Seafood de Mare and Spinach salad. The pasta came al dente, just the way I prefer. The sauce was spicy tomato based. I was thinking of ordering veal with mushrooms with white wine sauce after the pasta because I didn't want all the dishes arriving at same time. However by the time... More

We take friends and business associates to this dependable Italian Restaurant. The best thing on their menu lately has been their salmon appetizer. It's a bit more of a traditional menu, but still good. Like many restaurants their specials are always good. The staff is outstanding. They never rush you through your meal. Very relaxing. The atmosphere is really good.... More

Have been coming here for well more than a decade although we don't live in San Rafael. Before we moved I sometimes stop on my weekly commute home from Silicon Valley to the Santa Rosa Area. A good selection of pasta and other dishes. The consistency of this place is why we keep coming back. It's always good and reasonably... More

Luncheon there was a pleasure! We both had way too much bread and you know how you start out with some olive oil and Balsamic vinegar and you dip a hunk of bread in? And then another? And another? You get the idea. At least we both had great Caesar Salads. With extra anchovies. Hmmm, hmmm, good! I'll go back... More

This is my mother in laws favorite place to eat and we visit ever couple of months. The service is always great. They have a great selection on the menu. I do not like pasta, but they offer a variety of plates without pasta. Very nice wine list and a wonderful tiramisu.

Visited this place on the holiest of all Holy days, St. Patrick's. Corned beef special was a disaster. Very fatty corned beef served on cabbage. Very, Very fatty. The wrong cut. Carbonara was OK, served with bacon, not pancetta. Creamy and had potential. Sea bass was tender, moist and tasty. Wine was inexpensive and prices weren't over-the-top.

Café Arrivederci is an old school Italian restaurant with charm and great food. They also have a beautiful patio that whisks you away to Italy. Pedro the owner gives you the best possible customer service and makes every customer feel special. There is not only delicious food but they have a little room, which is great for business meetings.
