I am a bit of a "homer" as Arni's is a chain that is HQ'd in my home town, but their take on comfortable Italian food is reliable. it's not necessarily what you'll get in Philly/NJ/NYC, but I like it.

We came here expecting a "Lafayette" style Arni's experience. We were wrong. First off, the employees are nice and pleasant. We had no problems with them at all. If you are an Arni Junior fan, prepare to be disappointed. They are priced higher at this location and are smaller. The garlic toast was poor compared to the Lafayette style. Someone... More

We have enjoyed Arni's since living in Lafayette Indiana over 40 years ago. Where we currently live there is not an Arni's so a few times a year when we are in Indianapolis or another lucky town we eat at Arni's. Food has the same great flavor. I do not know what they do to their Junior salads. When I... More

We go to Arni's once every few months. The pizza is good as are the breadsticks and no problems getting a table or with service. We will be back.

Love the Junior Salad and the Pepperoni pizza. Booths in the bar area and great and the service is sooooooooo good in the bar. The "combo" pizza is delicious as well. Nothing to "not like."

You can't go wrong with Arni's. I have been to many of their locations around the state of Indiana and they never disappoint. We typically get the same thing (Arni's junior w/no radishes, ranch on the side and a large pepperoni pizza). I'm not a salad guy but the Arni's junior is at the top of my list. The garlic... More

My boyfriend and I ate here and we loved the food. The Arni's junior salad is wonderful as well as the pizza. The service was great too and nice atmosphere.

Arni's is not a gourmet restaurant, but almost all that eat here are very satisfied. While it is famous for pizza and it's salad, it has a lot more. The menu will satisfy anyone, there are plenty of choices and they are all good. I have had a party of over 20 people here each of the last three years... More

We have just recently discovered this restaurant and have been back several times since. They have a full menu, but we like their 7” individual pizzas the best as we both can select from different toppings not often found elsewhere. The décor is clean and pleasant but not noteworthy. The service is reasonably prompt and attentive. Expect to pay about... More
