It had been a while since we'd eaten here but went with our two teenagers for dinner on the weekend. Arborio has always been a cool place to eat, but this time the whole experience was nothing short of sensational. Not sure what has happened here (new owner/manager/staff?) but the food was world-class, the atmosphere cosy and friendly, and the service excellent. We bumped into a few other locals we knew, all of whom raved about their meals. I had the porterhouse steak, which was magnificent. Our sons went for pizza and fettucine, my husband had the pork belly. In all cases the presentation was as fabulous as the flavours. We highly recommend this place!

A lovely place with great views to catch up with special friends for a yummy Sunday brunch!
The food & service here never disappoints.

Made an early dinner reservation and was happy that we were squeezed in. Unfortunately there were two errors with our mains bit I have still rated high because the response to the errors was faultless and without hesitation. Additionally, the food was excellent and together with the service deserved a high rating.

My family and I have been to Arborio twice and both times the starter was very good, but the main courses were very tasteless and greasy.

Went for lunch on a Monday. It was fairly busy with lots of moms and toddlers. The atmosphere was next with good water views. My food, the pizza, was average. I will say that the chicken burger, that someone at our table ordered, looked real good. I would go back and order something different.
