About ristorante arrivederci

Located in the heart of Hillcrest and voted best pizzeria restaurant in San Diego many years in a row, La pizzeria Arrivederci saw it's first day in 2002 thanks to the Mastellone Family. Our philosophy is to deliver simple food at a reasonable price with friendly service. The restaurant group now also manages Au Revoir Bistro, Il Postino, Buon Appetito, Piacere Mio, Sorrento, ...). Authentic Italian restaurant, Arrivederci, has a casual ambiance, traditional Italian cuisine and an atmosphere that transports you directly to Tuscany, and the middle of Campania !!!

Our Italian homemade cuisine is a perfectly inexpensive recipe, a little bit of tradition, an ounce of modern Italian cooking inspired by different regions, and a big cup of love from our Chef and his team.

Pollo Saronno

4 servings

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

2 tablespoons minced onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 cups diced Roma tomatoes

Salt and pepper, to taste

3/4 cup Amaretto di Saronno

4 cups tomato sauce

1 cup cream

Chopped basil

2 tablespoons chopped toasted almonds

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and butter. When the butter foams, add the chicken, onion, garlic, diced tomatoes, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the chicken is browned on one side.

Turn the chicken and add the Amaretto, then the tomato sauce and the cream. Lower the heat and let cook for 10 to 12 mintes.

Near the end of the cooking time, add the basil. Place chicken on a serving dish, spoon the sauce over it and top with toasted almonds.
