As other reviewers said, the food is overpriced. The salmon was very average, and I would say not up to the standard. The waiters were like in a movie from 50's, very old fashioned, and were trying to be friendly, but personally I did not like their approach. The restaurant was almost half empty for dinner, which does not happen in most high end restaurants, but since most of other best restaurants were already booked out, I choose the closest Italian restaurant with seating. I will likely not go there again.

Food and service were very good. Prices reasonable. Lunch hours are extremely noisy. Hard to carry on a conversation given the noise level. Most frequently repeated question at business lunch was “Would you please repeat what you said”. Must
address the noise issue.

Arno is a regular dinner place for us before or after show plans. The food and service are excellent and, while it may be a bit pricey (or typical for Manhattan), it’s well worth it. Never disappointed.

A breath of fresh air from the hustle and bustle of the theater district. The sea bass piccata style with polenta special was delicious. We shared a hot antipasto (small for two people)and my husband enjoyed his rigatoni. The dessert cart was a delight for the eyes as well as the palate. The second waiter we had was friendly and engaging. We are not sure what the story was with the first waiter who was unfriendly and aloof. When we asked if there was a specialty cocktail menu his reply was a blunt stern “no”. Not even, “but we do have a full bar”. Thankfully and without explanation he tended to other tables and didn’t come back after taking our order.

We had a wonderful pre-concert meal. The food was outstanding, including dessert. The service was attentive and warm, and food was served quickly, despite a full house. I look forward to returning!

Had a 6:15 reservation Saturday night and was seated near the bar next to the window. Plenty of room and fairly quiet. Waiter was fantastic, food out 8f this world and pricing very reasonable for this level of quality. High recommended.

Just walking by the restaurant we could tell it would be exactly what we wanted - real traditional Italian food, with great service, in a simple, comfortable yet casually elegant atmosphere - veal dishes, fresh pasta and the desserts were great!

This was our first visit to Arno. We were looking for a convivial spot for a reunion of old friends.
Service, food, ambiance- everything was just what we wanted. We were made to feel as comfortable as if we had dined there many times before...a lovely evening, thank you.

Great food ! Waiter excellent. Hostess poor. We had a party of four, we two were seated and told the hostess to tell the others to be shown to table. They were told we had not arrived and had to call us on our mobile to inform us they were waiting for us. Poor follow though!

Our second time eating here. The first time a a pleasure which is why we returned, but not this time. The difference was the outrageously poor service. It started with the drink order. There were 6 of us : 2 bar drinks and a bottle of wine. The 2 bar drinks came in good order but we had to ask 2 times over 30 minutes for our bottle of wine, which was served warm and was not cold as it should have been. After a while we had to ask a busboy to get our waiter so that we could order our food. He told us the specials and I asked the price of one and was told the quote. When the bill came, it was priced $5 higher, but I digress. We then ordered and within an appropriate while, 2 of our appetizers were served. It took 10 minutes for the other four to be served. What happened to all diners get served at the same time? The mains came out together and with one exception, all were excellent. One, which was not on the menu (chicken marsala), was tasteless with no marsala flavor. As the evening drew to a close, our original waiter disappeared and another took over. Because of him, I gave the SERVICE 1 star. I would like to believe that this experience was the exception and not the rule. I'll report on our next visit.

Skip the menu and let the waiter tell you all the specials and order from him. Very accommodating to share family style any dish although that's not what they're known for. Great food but don't expect a lot of pasta just becuase it's an Italian place!
