We live in Usk WA in the summers, and love to come up and dine at Arlo's....their food and service is incomparable! We've eaten a another nearby Italian restaurant and it doesn't really compare (noisy and food is just okay)....the intimate atmosphere, immediate service, and the incredible food makes this our first choice....While we are here, we will drive up...

This family run business feels so cozy. We're always greeted by the owner. Great staff and live music somes nights. Checkered table cloths and great gnocchi & eggplant.

Located in downtown sandpoint Idaho. I gave this place a chance. Service was great but the Food was terrible. I will not come back here to eat. I had the chicken picatta. Probably the worst chicken picatta I've ever had. Reason for the 3 stars and not less was because the waitress was great and atmosphere was nice.

This is a nice little place; good location, good service, GREAT food! The waitress was very fast, friendly, and efficient; all while being very cordial. I had the Penne Panna something or other with sweet Italian sausage in a creamy tomato sauce and it was simply AWESOME!!!!

We've been to Arlo's twice and both times left feeling we should have gone somewhere else. There was only one server and a hostess? The server was trying to serve the customers while the hostess was sitting at the bar flipping through her iPhone. The server also was bartending. It took over a half an hour for our food to...

Four of us stopped here for drinks and ended up having dinner after speaking with the owner who was very personable. Everyone in our group loved their meal in this quiet little corner of Sandpoint.

I have not eaten at this establishment for quite some time. But when I did it was very unorganized and very, very mediocre food... They have stayed open for a while so maybe they're doing something right, hopefully they've improved... I will give them another try

My husband and I visited Arlos for a romantic dinner. We were extremely impressed. Lisa was incredibly hospitable and Ben cooked us the most amazing meals! Best veal Parmesan and the pasta with scallops and shrimp was awesome. When you are in Sandpoint definitely give Arlos a try. Delicious authentic Italian food with a wonderful atmosphere!!

I recently had the chance to try this cozy little restaurant and was not disappointed. The pastina soup was just what I needed on a cool rainy afternoon!
