    The snapper special OK, the carbonara and the meatball appetizer were excellent, but the trout was disappointing. We were lucky to have Lucky as our waiter. He was very attentive and helpful.

    Delicious food! Great service. We were going in right before a Hornets game and our waiter had us in and out within 45 minutes so we could get to the game on time. Would highly recommend!

    Headed to Charlotte for the weekend with friends. We chose Aria because of the positive reviews but our server behaved like he was impaired and could not keep straight where we were in the meal. This went as far as offering us dessert three times, once after we had paid. The food was lackluster. Nothing special.

    If the bar uses the same kitchen, it makes no sense for “bar bites” menu items (which are openly advertised) to not be available to me because I’m seated at a table.

    We had a 5pm reservation after a matinee at the Blumenthal.Restaurant was still pretty empty but they sat us right next to another couple.Tables in this area are very close together.I think they could have seated us at a table a little further away whicj would have given us and they other couple a little more privacy,I felt like I was listening to their conversation and they could listen to us. Food was good.Both my and my friends alads were good.Her pizza was good.My lasagna was good but a little overcooked

    This will go down as one of my favorite restaurants and experience of all. The food was next level delicious and the prices shocked me how reasonable they were (potentially even low for the cuisine). Matthew was our waiter and he was friendly, attentive, and fun! The manager Eddie was incredibly personable and knowledgeable and made sure our experience and wine tasting was impeccable. I am so happy we chose to have dinner here. We would absolutely go back!

    I was really impressed with the hostess station at the restaurant. We were greeted with a smiling face, an exuberant “happy anniversary”, and a very accommodating placement of our umbrella. Unfortunately the dinner service was terrible! Our waitress upsold us on the focaccia, which was a necessity since our burrata appetizer had no accoutrements, but didn’t bring us the complimentary bread and beans that we had received on our last visit. When we asked about the missing bread, she told us that she didn’t want us to get “too full”. We never saw her again…she didn’t bring the check, didn’t refill our drinks, totally disappeared! While we were waiting for our check, which was delivered by a random person, another waiter came to our table got uncomfortably close to my husband’s face and asked if we had gotten our food; it was quite odd considering that we were just waiting on the check. Food was good, but there were some noticeable changes since our last visit…not for the good. Quite disappointing, considering we were there to celebrate our anniversary. The horrible service really overshadowed the entire meal.

    I had asked for a detailed bill from our waiter our bill seemed high for just the two of us according to menu pricing. Never received my request and had to leave to make show on time, not worried about the money just wanted to make sure not overcharged

    We had reservations for 2 at 7pm on a Tuesday night — not sure what was going on, but we ended up not getting seated until closer to 7:20, and didn’t have food until nearly 8:15pm. Not sure if there was an issue with staffing or what, but overall the experience just took a lot longer than we expected for a mid-week dinner. At one point there were also upwards of 20 people waiting to be seated which made it a little chaotic in the front of the restaurant. Again, just really thought we’d get a better experience for the price we paid for dinner.

    Aria has a wide range of options for dinner, from pizza or pasta to Carolina catch. The prices are quite reasonable and we liked the portion sizes. They focus on quality, not quantity but the portions are generous enough to satisfy diners. Our party of six chose from all parts of the menu. The server was knowledgeable and very efficient. It’s an excellent choice for dining before a show.

    The noise was over the top, our group could not hear each other talk. The restaurant soes not, surprisingly, offer any vegetarian or gluten free options. Every other Italian restaurant in town offers gluten free pasta. Unfortunate. Our server was new, so we will give him some slack, but he was VERY disorganized. And again, it is the loudest restaurant we have been to in a long time.

    I've been to Aria a number of times through the years. It is consistently good. My only objection this time was when I asked for a small taste of one of the wines by the glass. The server said you can only have samples at the bar - not at the table (??) So I chose a wine and frankly didn't care for it. If I'd had the sample I would have chosen something else and maybe spent more.

    I had the carbonara with added shrimp along with the kale caesar salad. Salad was week at best with two small strips of anchovy thrown on top. The shrimp with the carbonara were flavorless, might have been precooked and just added to the side. Carbonara was very dry and lacking. Wine served in a highball glass?? Not impressed.

    We used to eat here all the time before Covid and it has really dropped off. The chicken was soggy, the breadcrumbs tasted awful and the sauce tasted like it was from a jar. We were told no substitutions which included trading out our side of pasta for a vegetable. The ambience is great, but other than that it was not good. With all the amazing food options in Charlotte, I don’t think I’d go back.
