    Arno is a veteran restaurant serving classic northern Italian or as it used to be called continental food. Very nice room right in the middle of the garment center in midtown Manhattan. Comfortable and relatively quiet room, veteran and elegant service, a wide ranging menu. we shared some appetizers, most notable was a cold seafood salad with calamari, shrimp and octopus. Mains were some classic chicken and veal dishes. Desert cart was wonderful, with a lot of great choices including fresh berries. highly recommended if you are in the area, including looking for something nice for an event at MSG.

    Had the Mozzarella Crostini and Veal Parmesan, iced tea to drink. Everything was average to poor taste especially for NY cuisine and the price point (bill was $60 with tip). The marinara is awful and food is horribly overpriced. Iced tea was $3 - each! I'm used to paying for refills in NYC but it's unusual to for the drink to come in a 6oz white wine glass and still be charged for refills. Midtown food is traditionally below-par for New York and on-par with national chain restaurants. This place is worse than most. I would rather dine at the Olive Garden.

    I 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.

    When 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!!

    Reservation 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.

    It 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.

    I 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!

    I'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

    This 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.

    This 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.

    We 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.

    Steve
    Dined on 3/15/2014
    Place 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.
