This is our first visit since they have moved from their previous location. Food and service were excellent. Beautiful food in a beautiful atmosphere. The seafood dishes were expertly prepared and arrived at the perfect temperature. We will be back.

They don't seem to need more 5-star reviews, but here's another one. We had a wonderful dinner at Ariana's. I had sauteed calamari and a shellfish stew; my husband had mushroom crèpes and duck confit. Terrific wine list and excellent, cheerful service.
