While everyone was very friendly, the food was disappointing. The fried chicken salad was served with cold fried chicken. When I questioned the server, he took it back to the kitchen. They microwaved it and returned it with less chicken than it originally had. The rest of the food was fine, but we probably won't be back as there are... More

Robin, thank you so much for taking the time to post about your visit to Arni's on 96th St. I am very sorry to hear that you were so disappointed. I did some checking after reading the post, and to my dismay and embarrassment, your chicken was in fact microwaved to reheat it. This should never have been done and... More

Went to Arni's in Indy on a nostalgia tour 33 years after moving to DC area. It was STILL delicious, high quality, excellent service and amazing pizza and salads. Can't beat an Arni's Junior salad and a Deluxe pizza. Some things DO stay the same.

We were traveling to Indy for a college visit, got to our hotel late Sunday night - hungry. Found Arni's because of its many choices on menu. It was real good - our server DD was great!

the food was really good. My favorite has always been the BBq chicken pizza. I love their carrot cake with the glaze and their salads are quite large and very filling. It was a nice place for lunch with a group.

Good spot to meet friends or take the family--easy to hear conversation at your table because background noise/music is not over-loud. Long Island Iced Tea was really big-two from our group shared one glass mug full. Strawberry Mojito seemed a bit too sweet and the mint flavor not strong enough. BBQ Pizza and Thai Chicken Pizza were fabulous - about... More

Absolutely delicious and the presentation was out of this world!! Flavorful Chicken and the Ranch Dressing was coated throughout. Great service and delicious dinner! I can't wait to come back and try more salads and the pasta. I've had their pizzas which are great but wanted to try something new....I was not disappointed!

Grew up eating Arni's. The Junior salad is perfectly balanced. The spiced pepperoni on their pizza is unique. Never had a bad meal in 48 years. It is our family tradition when I come back to Indiana.

Looking for (relatively) fast sit-down, Italian-American, pub atmosphere with a neighborhood flavor (despite being just off a major east-west artery)? Try Arni's. The first challenge is simply making it through the entire menu (almost a dozen pages and relatively light on photos), but the good news is that they have something for just about everyone....esxpecially if you like/love pizza. Arni's... More

I placed a catering order to be picked up at 5:30 PM for 30 people and arrived at 6 o'clock to be told that the order has not been placed and I had 30 people from a funeral waiting for the food. The manager apologized and said it would take 20 minutes, however it took 35 minutes. I I suggest... More

We dined at Arni's on east 96th Street yesterday with out family and enjoyed the wide selection of menu items available. I was considering the spicy wings, but selected the Meaty Lovers Pizza instead and it was very tasty. They offer wraps, wings, fries, burgers, pizza, salads, pasta, etc. etc. There is something here for everyone. Our 14-month-old granddaughter found... More
