Liked the atmosphere and staff did an excellent job. Took a little longer than expected but manager explained that my risotto was remade because the first dish was not up to standards. I appreciated that they remade it for me and we were in no hurry. Waitress was very attentive and really wanted us to have a good experience. Only thing I would suggest is that they serve bread of some kind. For a $20 entree I would have felt like I got my money’s worth if accompanied by a nice bread and some olive oil to dip. The risotto and the bolognese were both very good.

Went early on a Saturday, before a show. They gave us the option to sit in a quieter area, with not as many families with kids around, which I thought was nice. The drinks were fantastic, and the charcuterie board we had as an appetizer was one of the best I've ever had. They even warmed the olives, which I've never seen before. For dinner, I had the braised short rib with papardelle pasta. It was sublime. My wife had the "burnt ends" ravioli, which was a very unique and delicious dish. My mom ordered the 24k Cacio de Pepe Risotto. I shied away from this dish, because I saw that it had lemon, but it was magnificent! Cheesy goodness, with real, edible gold on top! We split two desserts, the chocolate tiramasu and the cannoli. The tiramisu was a different take on the dessert, and was quite good. The cannoli had fresh, flaky homemade shells that were amazing. I did find the filling to be a tad citrusy for my taste, but overall, everything was fantastic. Our server, Shauna, was a delight, and she was very helpful when we couldn't decide which options to go with on drinks and dinners. This place is pretty new, but if they continue to provide excellent service and amazing food, like we experienced Saturday, they should be here for a long, long time. I know we will be back!

Terrible experience. Was so bad that doesn't even deserve much explanation. If you want to wait for more than one hour for your food, get overprice substandard cuisine that doesn't understand the meaning of Al dente, and be told after an hour of waiting that they cannot make a pizza because they lack one ingredient then this is the place for you. Do yourself a favor and go to another place.

We truly apologize for the hour wait! We are Modern Italian, and make all of our pasta from scratch. There is no reason why your pizza was not able to get executed, so sorry about that. We would love to bring you in, and take care of you the right way. -Arno Family

Food was delicious! Sal was an amazing server. Only complaint would be that the location/surroundings do not equal the food or price. Restaurant feels strip center.

Not enough pasta menu choices. The bread and dipping oil was very good! A little to high on wine pricing.

Overall it was bad. Starting from service which was slow, our wine arrived after our appetizers and the entree was almost halfway done( i had to remind twice). They had a extremely limited menu and most options in ‘a la carte ‘ menu were not the best items. We then ordered the tiramisu which was not at all good, it was just layers of chocolate cake with whipped cream, nothing like what a tiramisu would taste like. I wont return

The service was slow in general, but especially for drinks.

The food itself was poorly executed.

I can not recommend.

Service was slow and inconsistent. Restaurant didn’t say they were fixed price menu for Valentine’s Day on Open table so we arrived to learn this. Ordered steak and it was TINY portion w no vegetables. Appetizer of fried polenta was not good. Staff was friendly but overall disappointing experience and too expensive for quality of food

Our waitress hurt her back and disappeared. Slow getting starred. One meal showed up incomplete. Once the greeter jumped in everything seemed to straighten out. Food was delicious and we had a good time.

Was great food. The colony has lots of kids. There was no kids menu - so we had to ask and the service was great . Just wish they had some crayons for kids at the tables.

This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. They appear to be still finding their way with service, we had to wait for a bottle of wine to be delivered to our table. Our wine didn't arrive until we were half way through our appetizer but other than that, service was fairly good.

The calamari was fresh and delicious, the Arno salad was very tasty and my husband enjoyed the burnt end ravioli while I was glad they made an accommodation to make the fusilli pasta without chicken. They could use a couple more meatless/vegetarian selections as well as more than one fish selection but that may come with time.

Overall, we will return and recommend Arno's. The atmosphere is very nice, we realize it is The Colony so kids and families are part of the package but it would be nice if kids/families could be seated in one area and adults without kids could be seated in a separate area for a more quiet dining experience. Just something to consider when you spend $175 for dinner, you don't particularly want to be seated near children who can ruin a nice quiet dinner fairly easily.

We wanted to go somewhere new for our anniversary and gave Arno a try on short notice. Food and service were both excellent. Value was great. Food and wine menus are not overwhelmingly large with great choices.
