Our waiter I believe his name was Ivan did a pretty good job dealing with the complexities of a busy restaurant had a short staff. My veal piccata one of my favorite dishes at the restaurant I was not good last night.The veal was extremely tough and the sauce seemed off. My guest had Seabass and she was disappointed in it.

There was a large party of about 14 to 16 people which included about six very noisy children under the age of 10. Parents seem to ignore the noise level from the kids. Food was great server did the rest under the conditions

Arugula is our “go to” for great Italian food. Usually I’m one who finds something I like on the menu and sticks with it out of fear that another dish may disappoint. That’s not the case here. I’ve visited 5-6 times, had something different each time, and have enjoyed everything! I particularly like the Arancini, pasta fagioli, veal piccata, tortelloni di vitello, gemelli di boscaiolo, and the rigatoni alla vodka. Service is attentive and never rushed. That it’s a BYOB is a bonus.
