Perfectly situated between the Garment District & Madison Square Garden and just south of Times Square, Arno Ristorante has been a part of Manhattan's Midtown landscape since 1984. Our five event spaces can be configured to accommodate from 20-300 guests. Great for weddings and holidays.View Private Dining Details
We zijn hier gaan eten om twee redenen. De eerste ik heet zelf Arno en ten tweede omdat de recensies prima waren.
We hebben goed gegeten, wel snel. Er was niet echt sfeer, voelde beetje als een Italiaans maffia cafe/restaurant. Wij zaten voorin het restaurant, meer in het cafe.
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.
We had a business meal with 5 people. The food,wine and service was excellent. Would recommended this place to everyone.
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.
Excellent as always! An authentic, warm, inviting and ever-so courteous experience. Thank you, Arno friends!
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.
Great early dinner experience after a matinee show. Fettuccine was the best ever and everything else was Italy worthy.
Great food lovely ambiance. Waiter was condescending
Been there several times and always have had a wonderful dining experience!
Great food great staff.
Big disappointment , our table next to the toilets while the restaurant was not full
Das Essen war gut, Service ok aber eben nicht aussergewöhnlich. Das Lokal hat Potential für mehr Ambiente und Gemütlichkeit.
Great dinner last night. We had a reservation but chose to eat at the bar. The bartender was super nice and efficient.
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.
Once again a fabulous time at Arno’s. Always a good dining experience.
Still one of my fav restaurants in NYC. Great service and friendly people.
The place was great. From apps to desert and the service! A gem in the fashion district for sure.
Great food, service and noise level.
Delicious authentic Italian food with attentive service. Highly recommend!
Always a great experience at Arnos. Good food and excellent service. An old garment district gem. Check it out.
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!
Everything was excellent. Pleased with my meal, cant wait to go again.
Love this place. Bartender was great. Food was great. Service was outstanding. Relatively priced for NYC
The staff was very friendly. Peter, our waiter was great. He was very helpful and knowledgeable of the food and wine. The ambience was lovely. We will definitely be back.
Service and food were both very good. Menu provided many nice options. Restaurant was comfortable and welcoming. It was busy and a little noisy early on, but not so much that it bothered us.
Had a business dinner scheduled and we ended up running late. I called the restaurant to move our reservation and add a person. They were very accommodating. Food was great! There was so many people taking care of our table, all of our needs were met instantly.
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.
Good solid Italian meal.
Never lets me down
Very welcoming, food was very good, service was great too, knowledgeable staff. We were heading to a show and let them know so they made sure we were well fed within the time constraints we had. Great find in the neighborhood!
Service was great and the salmon was to die for! We ate here prior to a Broadway show.
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!
One of the best Italian restaurants in NYC. It’s our go to place in New York.
This restaurant is consistent with good food and service. Comfortable and not too noisy.
Delicious sauces on seafood soup and snapper with seafood. Excellent service. Beware, however, that prices on menu on open table are $4-5 less than at the restaurant.
The portions were large; my chicken was dry and I found it pricey. I wouldn't go back nor would I recommend.
