- Arno after a Broadway showarnoandbroadwayDined on 8/16/2014I highly recommend the cuisine at Arno's following a Broadway matinee or before an evening show. The food is excellent as is the staff and the dining atmosphere. Everyone is friendly and accommodating. They even sang Happy Birthday to one of our party members whose birthday we were celebrating. This was an excellent dining experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- No School Like the Old School!!!DrumfunkstaVIPDined on 8/15/2014When we walked in, I looked around and thought, "Ok it looks like a classic Old School NY Italian Restaurant" It was kind of empty but don't let that keep you from going in! Arno is in the Fashion District and as such they do a huge lunch business and don't get a ton of tourists. That's the tourists' loss! They do decent theater business. Arno has been around for over 20 years and I now know why. The staff and the food! The service was outstanding! We were made to feel at home from the start. The menu is just the starting point and they do so much more! I had the tortellini Al'Amtriciana (onions, tomatoes, bacon and pancetta) Perfectly cooked and delicious! Risotto with seafood...Unbelievably good! I will keep coming back!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent dining experienceTCMinerDined on 8/4/2014We had six people for dinner and the food and service was excellent. It is a little off the beaten path but worth finding.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Hoped for moreMarkBDined on 7/28/2014Reservation for two after 8 on a Monday got us a seat along a wall. The wait staff is aged but very knowledgeable and authentic. We selected a decent wine from the wine list and both enjoyed the veal special. We were a bit disappointed in the presentation and the side, however, the main course was enjoyable. We passed on the dessert and coffee after being neglected for some time and then being offered the dessert cart from a neighboring waiter. Not memorable enough to return without trying other establishments with the same cuisine in the neighborhood.Special Features:
- Denver3VIPDined on 7/22/2014Great food. Our waiter, Desi, was spectacular. This is a definite keeper.Special Features:

- showdinerDined on 7/16/2014It was our first time here. There were four of us and we each ordered different appetizers and entrees and we were all very pleased. The service was very good as was the ambience. It was an early evening seating so the noise level was quiet. We found a great new restaurant between the theater district and Penn Station.Special Features:
- Always consistentBeverlyVIPDined on 7/15/2014Arno's is a very lovely restaurant. The service is great. The food is yummy. The restaurant is comfortable. It's a great place to go for a business lunch, before theater, or just for a relaxing dinner.Special Features:
- Wonderful dining experience!GVM924Dined on 7/12/2014I remembered having lunch here 13 years before and wanted to give my out of town friend a great dining experience after we went to the theater. We didn't want the noise & kitsch of the places in Times Square. It went beyond great: the food was amazing, the service was very professional & personable. We had the speciaI: pasta siciliano, caprese salad, white & dark chocolate cake with pineapple and a wonderful red wine recommended by the maitre'd. I would go back in a heartbeat. In fact, I'm planning on doing that for my son's birthday in August! I recommend Arno's wholeheartedly!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- DisappointedOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 6/12/2014I've been here many times and always super happy...but not this last time. We had 3 different waiters take care of us over the course of a 1 hour lunch - never saw the same person twice. I was told of a seared scallop over black risotto special (which he said was amazing) and decided to get it but what was served was scallops with a side of saffron rice. The second waiter told me the first must have misunderstood the special (which I may add he had written down not memorized so find that hard to believe). The rice was mediocre and the scallops were not very sweet /tasty at all. Also tried the special appetizer which was portobello mushroom carpacio with some salad on top -- it was drab in color (not appetizing to look at) and flavor
- Service above and beyondAndyVIPDined on 6/10/2014The staff is extremely attentive and is happy to take special requests. never had to look up for a server, they were always looking out for usSpecial Features:
- Reliable FavoriteCarolCDined on 6/7/2014This was my third or fourth time at Arno. It's so convenient after a theatre matinee and on the way to Penn Station. Service is old-time attentive and the food is very good. We sat in the bar area the last time which was really appreciated since there was a private dinner of about 40 people in the dining area. Will definitely continue to come after Saturday matinees.Special Features:
- FabulousOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/27/2014This was a special occasion, my daughter's college graduation dinner. The staff acknowledged that and definitely made us feel comfortable. We received great service from all staff members. But, a big shout out goes to our waiter, Desi. He had lots of personality and was a joy to have. The food was delicious, definitely no complaints from our party.Special Features:

- Unexpected PleasureTaxprofsDined on 5/10/2014We visited Arno last Saturday night and were very pleasantly surprised. The restaurant has a charm even though it is very large. The service was very professional and the food was outstanding. The staff was especially friendly and helpful. We will definitely return as it is convenient to most Broadway plays and midtown events.Special Features:
- Food Excellent!kushieVIPDined on 5/7/2014While the food was great, did not expect the crowd of people, probably some for Madison Square Garden. The waiter was very attentive and had a great personality. If I was in the neighborhood, I would return.

- Outdated Tourist TrapSteveDined on 3/15/2014Place is outdated, food is poor quality and service is drab - skip it if you value your money and time. Arrived at 6 pm and the place was nearly empty. The service was poor and tip driven. The wait staff ignored our table unless they were assigned to it. Overall, have had much better and there really isn't any reason to return in a town with so many better choices. There's nothing special about this tourist trap. We ordered on pasta dish and one chicken dish. The pasta (tortoleni) was something any of us could have made at home and was not attractive by appearance. The chicken dish was supposed to be breast stuffed with prosciutto and cheese. It was served as a flattened piece of chicken with a thin slice of ham w/ lump of potatoes.
- Arno is always awesome tojustmeVIPDined on 3/6/2014Arno is always awesome to me! Never had a bad experience, still one of my favorite spots in NYC.I would recommend this to a friend.
