Ariano is mostly about pizza, and with good reason, their pizza is very good! They easily have at least 20 differents combinations available at any time. With so many choices, it can be hard deciding which one to get. My husband and I usually split an order of Arancini and two different pizzas, and go home with a few leftover slices. The pizzas are slightly larger than personal sizes - two pizzas can easily feed three people. The Carmela (Oven Caramelized onions, basil and shaved fontina cheese drizzled with olive oil) and Mama Francesca (Sautéed Broccoli Rabe, Italian Hot Sausage and Sardo Parmesan Cheese with a lite tomato sauce) are our favorites from the regular menu.
After dinner, be sure to try some of the gelato. The pistachio is my favorite, and we'll often pop-in just for that.
The inside is *much* nicer than you would expect for what is basically a BYOB pizza shop. It's owned by the same people as Fellini's, but Ariano is nicer inside and has better food.
