We were hoping for a yummy Italian dinner but unfortunately it was pretty average. The menu is fairly minimal so we ordered pizza and risotto. We have definitely had better. Wouldn’t recommend Arborio unfortunately.

My wife and I visited Arborio for dinner and lunch. I really wanted green lipped mussels for dinner and I was not disappointed with the preparation of the mussels, they were excellent. The desserts were irresistible. You have to go here!

We dropped in here for lunch and it has a lovely relaxed vibe. The menu gave us plenty of delicious options and I settled for the bruschetta which was lovely, a good balance of fresh light toppings without being dominated by heavy bread. My lunch...More

We dined here a couple of nights ago. The place was busy but we got a table for two without a reservation. The service throughout the evening was friendly and efficient. The shared starter - Polenta Chips - was fantastic, and the drinks arrived quickly....More
