Something Different in Casual Dining

We stopped by Arni's on a whim just because we were hungry and in the neighborhood. I'm glad we did. I was immediately please with the decor, which had an upscale feel that was different than your normal casual dining place. The menu included the burgers and entries you'd expect to find but with... read more

We have traveled to Indianapolis just to visit Arni's several times. We also always stop there if we are passing through Indy for any reason. It is always worth the stop!

It had been several years since I had been to the now- closed locations at 86/Michigan and Cicero. Unfortunately I was a bit disappointed as the service and the kitchen were a bit off tonight. We placed our drink orders and my friend got her soda right away; for some reason my wine took over 10 min to arrive at... More

Just like old Friends you always enjoy the visit. We visit "Get My Perks" and buy coupons all the time. Try anything on the menu And get great food and service. If you want something a little different tell your server. They'll try to get it done. Pizza, pasta, sandwiches, salads and so much more. The drink specials and cold... More

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."
