This word has inspired us to create the slogan of our restaurant as “The Color of Taste”.The Color of Taste is representing to our variety of authentic Italian recipes that we serve through our warm, comfortable, and lovely atmosphere. We are proudly using our original recipes even though we have moved from an original location, Babelon, located in front of Chiang Mai University.An antique wooden house in the large garden was transformed into Arcobaleno, the lovely Italian restaurant with plenty of parking spaces. This place is decorated with the inspiration of clean, comfortable, and relaxed impression that you will perceive as very much feeling like eating at your lovely home. In addition, you will be able to enjoy your meal either inside the building or outside, surrounded with a peaceful garden. The yellow wall inside the restaurant has been decorated with the pictures of our big Chef Renato Magni, who is the head of this family own restaurant. He has invented his own Italian food recipes for more than thirty years together with his Italian cuisine experience in many countries around the world.The sample menu features a page of signature dishes; beef and salmon carpaccio, along with Riso pilaf primavera, Italian’ rice with fresh or Risotto Nero, Italian’ rice the squid ink.

While we were roaming around town one afternoon, chanced upon the signboard from the main road, intrigued, we follow the signs, place is found easy enough. Restaurant is roomy, and comfortable. We decided to settle down for early lunch after looking at the extensive menu with plentiful of vegetarian options available at reasonable prices. Grilled vegetables - quite well done,... More

This restaurant, located in a house in a residential area, was close to our hotel and we saw it when we walked by so decided to have a change from Asian food and try Italian. It was a good choice as they have a fairly extensive menu of Italian dishes, the chef is Italian and his daughter, who is part... More

We have been coming to this restaurant since they moved from their original premises on the other side of town. Always excellent service, delicious Italian food, and reasonable prices. Well worth the effort to visit it once, and I guarantee you will want to go back again..! Weekends are usually busy, so worth booking ahead of time.

One of my guide books recommended this restaurant, and as it was not far from my hotel I thought I'd give it a try (plus I was a bit tired of Asian food). I arrived just after 9pm on a weeknight, and the place was empty; it's a bit tough to know what the ambience would be like if it... More

This is our third year in a row in Chiang Mai and we look forward to our meals at ArcoBeleno. We had three meals here this visit and think it is some of the finest Italian anywhere in the world. We love the spinach and crab crepes as well as the eggplant parmigiana. Prices are great too. I would highly... More

Meal was average. Food was o.k. but nothing special. Both meat dishes served with a small portion of noodles and nothing else. Strange "Caesar" salad, as served with olive oil dressing. We were given a choice between "cream" or olive oil. Chose the olive oil, but disappointing if looking for traditional Caesar Salad.... Dinner rolls were very good! Atmosphere could... More
