The food is great (food flavor amazing), but the lunch portions are pathetically small and our server was the only server and while she was always moving did not anticipate needs as we'll as she could have

My favorite here is the clams with a side of garlic bread! You won't be sorry !!!! Best ever!!!! And I travel a lot!!! Lots of good choices on the menu but this is one of my favorites! It is locally family owned. The owners are always around to greet you with warm friendly service! Love this place.. Great food..... More

We like Arlos and it is our "go to " place in Sandpoint. We have always gotten great service and great food. If you want good Italian food - give it a try!

Arlo's couldn't be in a better location - right in the heart of downtown Sandpoint! Easy walking distance to a music or theater performance at the Panida Theater, just down the street. The staff goes out of their way to be cheerful and accomodating and it's nice to still see a family owned and run little Italian restaurant. The food... More

It was really an enjoyable meal.The staff bent over backwards to make sure we had a good dining experience . A minor error in a bread order( no... More

We were looking for a nice place to eat in Sandpoint, Idaho that was quiet and comfortable. When we smelled the sauce from the sidewalk in front of the restaurant, we were sold. Even though we did not have reservations, we were seated on the patio and it was a lovely evening to eat outside. The service was very good,... More

The place was not full on a Saturday night - that should have been a clue. We were told that it was expected to be busy that night so we made reservations earlier in the day. I had the seafood abbondanza. Overall, it had good flavor but the calamari were like small rubberbands. My wife had the special shimp and... More

We've eaten here twice on trips and enjoyed both. Former New Yorkers started this little place. Their great service makes the experience even better. Plenty of wine choices but even the house red was a better table wine than most restaurants.
