Awesome Location

We were seated on a patio overlooking the water and had delicious Italian beer and an authentic flatbread pizza that was all meat and just amazing. The location was great, the view wonderful and despite a good lunch rush prompt and entertaining service. I hope to go again soon for dinner!!

This small family restaurant is a gem. As soon as you enter the door the owner greets you with a warm smile as if you are family. One time there was a group of us and no large tables were available, but he asked some diners to move so they could put tables together and we soon were seated, Another... More

This was my husband and my worst dining experience ever. While the food was delicious, the service was awful, on a level I have never in my life experienced. The waitress was quite obviously DRUNK, running into things (chairs, doors) and slurring her words and practically falling in my lap. She took over 15 minutes to bring us menus, forgot... More

We have been here many times and have always enjoyed the food and warm atmosphere. Can say I have never had a bad meal and their garlic bread is sooo awesome! It is family owned and operated and they are accommodating to our family, as a matter of fact it is my son's first pick for a place to eat.... More

I have eaten at Arlo's many times over the years, but the last time I was very disappointed. The sauce had been burned, and the taste ruined my meal. I come from an Italian family, and know that burned sauce can be a disaster. I certainly would not have served this pot of sauce to anyone.

Never tried Arlo's and have hear mixed reviews over the years... Figured I would give it a try. Place always seemed busy when I had been by it before... So figured it would be pretty good. So Walked in and yes they were busy... Got seated near the kitchen entrance in the middle of the floor and that made it... More

My second time eating here. Amazing food and specials. Really good house wine. Tasty garlic bread. Had a seafood pasta that reminded me of a meal that I had in Italy. Just so so good. Shared the Italian chocolate mouse, that was sooooooo good! Very attentive owner and staff.

After walking all over Sandpoint to find a special place to eat on Labour Day weekend for our wedding anniversary and finding most everything closed, we settled on Arlo's. As one of the only places open that day, they were out of all their popular products and the one waitress looked and acted exhausted. After placing our order based on... More

Met good friends for dinner while we both were traveling through Sandpoint. We were hungry for Italian so some local residents suggested this restaurant. We arrived early and had reservations. Some previous reviews suggested the garlic bread so we ordered that with our adult beverages. It was really good so would recommend it. The problem came after we ordered our... More
