We eat here regularly. Had a bad experience last night at a different restaurant in Winter Haven we thought we would try. Walked out and went to Arabellas. Another great meal, great service and great atmosphere. We love this restaurant. Arabellas has never disappointed!

I'm so glad we decided on Arabellas for lunch! I had the chicken parm sandwich...so good! The pasta salad that came with the sandwich was light and full of flavor. I highly recommend it!

This is the best place ever to eat whether lunch or dinner. Food is always delicious and served by waiters and waitresses that love their job. Always respectful and polite. I’ve never had a bad meal. Food is fresh and delicious!

Food is good. A snail appetiser which we tried was delicious. Steak was very tender and tasty. They had live music and also took song recommendations.

Our party was seated in the back room on a Friday night, no problem. Even though there were some people late, we knew their orders and the service was so-o-o-o slow! A party of the same size arrived after us and was served every course...More

What can you say, amazing food, fantastic service, classy surroundings, a piano player and an accordion. Classic classy Italian dining experience, with good menu too. only downside is you pay for that, but if it's a special celebration, it's worth it.

They have a private room upstairs that should handle 18 people no problem. There is also a small area in the back of the main dining room. I would call them. Franco and his staff will not disappoint you.
