We were warned about this place but risked it anyway, it was terrible. From the moment we walked through the door my intuition screamed turn around and run. The restaurant is Small, shabby, poorly decorated and dirty. It took forever to get someone to seat us (they weren't busy). A young couple came in right behind us, and we asked... More

This place has been here for some time but it never really occured to us to eat here? So the bar is cute, the music was meh, the staff was very nice. Food - the antipasti was par, my bro had the veal and felt it could use more veal. I tried it and loved the sauce! I had the... More

Very good Italian food! On the river front. Service was excellent. I had the calimari and found it to be excellent.. Others in group enjoyed other dishes.

Went here on a Saturday Night with Family and Friends for a nice Italian meal, but I wasn't impressed. First of all the servers were very nice, and they were quick to sit us. Our drink orders were taken and came out quickly. The food was another matter. I ordered the Cannelloni, and I was disappointed. After waiting for an... More

Had a nice Italian dinner here. View of river was good. Service was excellent. I had the bolonaise (Sp?) which was a little more tomatoi than I prefer but tasty. This is not a cheap diner so bring your wallet.

Went on a Monday hoping to get some lasagna, but apparently that is only on Sunday's. Had a great selection of other fine foods though, so the choice was still great. Had fantastic service and a delicious meal. Great place to eat for sure, and handy to shopping also.

We went as a group of 6 on a Monday night and it seemed a bit disorganized up front even though it did appear busy. It took 5 minutes to be seated, but the hostess did provide us some menus to look over while we waited. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Took awhile to even get garlic bread, but... More

Thanks for your review, Tiffany. Even when busy, we strive to get our customers seated within 5-10 minutes. I'm glad to hear we lived up to this with your party. Also, thank you for complimenting our seemingly famous garlic bread. It is a secret family recipe from Mama Arlo. I hope we can serve you again in the future. More

We needed a place to eat when we arrived at our B&B after a long travel day. Our B&B host recommended Arlo's ~ it was was within walking distance and since it was Sunday it was Lasagne Night. The service was friendly, fast & the food was great Italian. Nothing really outstanding but just really good food you would expect... More

We stopped by at the end of the lunch hour so very quiet. Service was excellent and food very good. Tried Cannoli, Ravioli (take out) and Meatball spaghetti and all were very good. Nice view and outdoor seating area. Enjoyed our food. Nummy garlic bread!

Our first experience at Arlo's and I can assure you it won't be our last. We were headed for the Italian restaurant "down the street" when a friend asked if we had tried Arlo's. Being fairly new to the area, we were not familiar with Arlo's but it was the best dining tip we've received in a long time. My... More
