Arugula Ristorante At Cold Point Village (BYOB)
Good food, good service, was pretty darn load though. Hard to talk.
Very disappointed. Grilled artichoke appetizer was a strange mix of foods, especially the melted cheese with the shrimp. Pasta entree arrived 90 minutes after sitting down. It was lukewarm and shrimp was overcooked. Utensils were removed with salad and never replaced. Not at all like the last time we dined there.
The menu needs to be updated. Prices high for chicken dishes. Food is average. Service is often rushed and servers are not friendly. It is very loud and hard to talk and hear the people or person at your table.
great food great service noise level is on the high side
Fresh tasty and great choices
Always great food, service is usually very good. But the noise level in this restaurant is beyond belief. I’ve been in restaurants five times the size and it’s quieter than arugula. It’s a real problem. We would be there every week if it weren’t for the ambience. That said, if you’re looking for a great meal at fair value prices, this place is great. My chicken Parmesan was superb as was the side of angel hair and my missed the salad was excellent and fresh. My wife’s cappellini with crab was like why is excellent and done to perfection. The only food knock into continual on is that the bread at this place is among the worst I’ve ever had an Italian restaurant. It’s like they went over to giant and bought some bread. That’s the only disappointment here. They do bring a piece of bruschetta for everybody which is quite good but the bread is horrible.
Always great service and food.
Always outstanding, delicious, and fun. Excellent staff and service.
The food is consistently delicious! We love it here.
The food and service are very good. I do think it is a little loud in the restaurant, but the food makes up for it, so I would definitely go back again.
The appetizers were delicious! The grouper (a special) was a bit bland but all the other dishes were yummy. It is VERY noisy in there.
Dinner at Arugula was outstanding! Service is always great and food incredible! BYOB is a plus!
Excellent food superb service
Best Italian restaurant around
The food was excellent! I always enjoy going to Arugula.
Delicious food and excellent service. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Food was very good. We had a great dinner. I recommend this restaurant to others looking for good Italian food.
This was our first time here and my dinner was very good. I had the special, zucchini pasta with squash, tomatoes, shrimp and scallops. My husband had the linguini pescatore and was not so lucky. Some of the mussels were bad and ended up only eating a few of them. His stomach was upset and spent the rest of the evening in the bathroom :( We may try it again, but won’t order the mussels.
We always enjoy coming here for dinner,as the food is always consistent & delicious. However, the service was very slow & it shouldn’t have been, as there were only a few other diners in the restaurant.
Good food, good service, & a good value!
The service and food was great as usual. The octopus salad is awesome.
This restaurant was amazing and the food was delicious. I will be back and I have recommended this restaurant to several of my friends already. Thank you for a great dining experience.
Food and ambience were great but service was not up to the same level. Grumpy waiter and had to wait twenty minutes to find someone to fill all of our empty water glasses.
This is one of our favorite local restaurants where the food is always good and the service is great! You can expect the restaurant to be full because other people share my opinion on how good it is. We also like the fact that it is a BYOB
My husband and I ate outside on a beautiful September Saturday night. The restaurant was very busy but our server was extremely attentive. He mentioned all the specials and when I asked about the octopus appetizer he said he thought there were 2 more and he would see. When he returned, he had octopus for me ! Our entrees were fabulous in fact as good as anything we eat in downtown Phila. My black linguini was exquisite and my husband couldn’t stop eating his papoardelle all’s Sorrento. A wonderful dining experience- we’re sure to return very soon!
Excellent service, great food, nice atmosphere. Always a great place to enjoy.
We had a fantastic meal and service!! The ink squid pasta was amazing!!!
Delicious, delicious, delicious!!!!!! Love the bread, too! Love that it is a BYOB, too!
The food is really good and a great value for your money however I went with two other women and we all felt as thought the waiter was not happy with us from the beginning (we were not being difficult at all!). He messed up my friend's order and didn't even apologize! The kitchen quickly made her the correct meal, however he practically threw the dish on the table and walked away. I would probably go back but would make sure I got another waiter!
This was our third dinner at Arugula. First was great, second was uneven, as was our most recent experience (Sep 9, 2019). Steak and halibut were prepared nicely and cooked to order, but the side vegetables were uninteresting at best. My wife's chicken was tasteless, as were the accompanying vegetables. We were joined by a friend we hadn't seen in months, so the slow service suited our needs (but would have been annoying any other time).
Their food is phenomenal. They seemed understaffed but our waiter did the best he could. All of their food is so outstanding and we will definitely be returning.
Loved eating outside Saturday evening. The food was great and so was the service and ambiance.
The food was excellent - fresh ingredients, seasoned perfectly. The server, who came over several times before we ordered, never came back during the meal to check on us or to take my credit card.
The food is quite good, and service is prompt and friendly.
Generally love the food. My veal was very tough and not cooked as well as in the past.
Delicious dinner and great service. Our meal was exceptional! BYOB is a plus!
Food was excellent. Very nice place for a quiet lunch with friend from out-of-town. First time. Would return again if I am in that area.
The grilled octopus was fantastic
Great lively atmosphere
Delicious and lovely !! The food and service was A plus!
Dined outdoors and it was a beautiful night. Eggplant appetizer was delicious. The penne Sophia and the pollo romana were very delicious. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly. Always feel welcomed there.
Delicious food and great service. The homemade pasta is amazing as well as the grilled salmon. Jove the grilled artichoke or grilled romaine as an appetizer. Highly recommend Argula.
