Arno Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
It was not what we expected based on the ratings. We brought our six year old daughter and was automatically put in the bar (she was very well behaved). Our waiter apparently came off his shift as after our initial drinks and order no one came until the bill. We were not even offered dessert (for which they have a good looking tray). The food was good, but the service brought down the overall experience.
We wanted a last
Minute pre theatre Italian meal . Arno was available and geographically desirable. We each had a nice pasta entree and a glass of wine. Good but nothing special. Plastic menus. Cold bread. Not a lot of choices on the menu. My husband liked it more than I did. I think there are better choices
The food was out-of-this-world! Absolutely delicious. Husband had a veal florentine special and I had the rigatoni all'amattriciana. I definitely know what and where I will be eating the next time I am in NYC. The restaurant is a bit old fashioned and the waiters hover, but the food more than makes up for it. Go. Eat.
Hotel recommended, within walking distance; Cornelius was our waiter, very friendly and accommodating. I had seen risotto with shrimp on a menu earlier in the day and wanted that. However, I decided to add shrimp to the homemade pasta with mushrooms. Superb. Good dessert as well. We had walked many miles that day sight seeing and were happy to end the day at Arno's.
This restaurant is just very consistent with the quality of food and great service. That is why I keep going back. This time was no exception. Linguine and clam outstanding, fresh flavorful perfect seasoning. My business associate had a pounded veal cutlet parmesan which he said was great. Fresh fish salad if it is available is a must try.
This was our first visit and it was terrific!!! There six of us each having a different meal and all very delicious. I was ordering a wine that I am familiar with and the host recommended on for a slight up charge that he said we would like better and he was right, everyone loved it.
The dining room was very busy and loud. There were multiple servers who seemed to rotate and not much communication between them which made the service disjointed. When we were seated we were immediately asked if we wanted something to drink before we were even given a wine list. When taking orders the waiter did not mention specials until we asked him. Surprisingly for an Italian Restuarant there were no pasta options on the menu. The food itself was very good and did come out pretty quickly. Part of the service issues are due to the busyness of the Restuarant but when going out to a nice restaurant I expect better.
We were in the city for the day. We arrived for our 7p.m. reservation, was seated promptly, then forgotten. Several wait staff members walked by our table without even an acknowledgement. We had to ask for menus and when we finally got them it was several minutes before someone returned. We were never offered to place a drink order. Tables that arrived after us, received drinks, bread and apps before our order was even taken. The food arrived after a lengthy wait, it was delicious but at that point the service took away from the experience. We received our check and then the dessert cart came around.. The restaurant was relatively quiet and there seemed to be an abundance of staff, just possibly poorly managed. I am not one who usually writes reviews but felt compelled to do so, I would try the restaurant again because of the excellent taste of the food, hopeful for better service.
Food was just average, I was expecting more from the overall rating it has. The bread was served with hard butter squares, impossible to spread. The mozzarella crostini appetizer is essentially a breaded, fried grilled cheese sandwich and light on the cheese. The sauce that accompanied it was very good though. The caesar salad was awful. It looked like it came right out of a bag and was tossed with dressing and mini-croutons from a supermarket. The seafood risotto was decent.
This is an authentic Italian restaurant with attentive and friendly staff. The food is not exceptional in a town where you can find outstanding Italian food. The fish was dry and the ratatouille accompaniment not memorable. The scamp lacked the buttery garlic moistness that we expected. For the price, these dishes should be on the mark.
I have not been in a long time. Service was excellent. Main dish , on the bone veal parm was great. Baked clams werent the best. Had part of the group arrive late, and I needed to leave early. They were very accommodating. I will be back again, without years in between.
