Our Story

More than Great Food

  Arrivederci Cucina Italiana means, Arrivederci’s Italian Kitchen and it was in the kitchens of Italy that our family learned how to use the precise methods of cooking our traditional foods that goes back thousands of years. This is done by using only the best and freshest ingredients possible. The foods of Italy and Sicily stem from many places such as from the southern Mediterranean regions of Naples and Palermo to the northern Alpine districts of Lombardy and all of the regions in-between.


     With all due respect to Italy some of the best Italian food can be found right here in Fountain Hills. For decades our family has strived to serve your family our authentic and mouth watering meals with every ounce of professionalism and diligence that we have. We have found this to be an unbeatable combination for our customers just like Rocky Marciano’s knockout punches. 


Good pasta gave me the strength to fight on, and if I didn’t think I was going to win why the heck would I be fighting. –Rocky Marciano: World heavy weight boxing champion.


Serving Greatness Since 1996

                                                   “Buon cibo. Buon vino. Buon amici”

Literally translates to ”Good food. Good wine. Good friends.” Just everything you need in life.

You will be greeted with big warm smiles as famiglia, and will be served some of the best Italian food this side of the Atlantic. We are truly looking forward to seeing you soon at Arrivederci Cucina Italiana.


A Little Taste of Tuscany

King of Tuscan wine: the Sangiovese grape

Sangiovese, the name, derives from Latin: Sanguis Jovis, “blood of Jupiter”. It is the most widely planted red variety in Italy, and the lifeblood of red wine production in the central regions

Tuscan wines including Chianti Classico (Annata, Riserva and Gran Selezione), so-called “Super-Tuscans” like Tignanello, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello di Montalcino are made purely from Sangiovese or in a blend where this grape variety dominates



Authentic Recipes Reimagined

Decades of immigrants from various regions of Italy, the proliferation of chain restaurants, and an American taste for quantity over quality has shaped the way Italian food is served in the United States

A new generation of stateside chefs are looking to return to the cuisine's origins, looking to modern day Italy for inspiration
