However, it would have been better to add more side vegetables in the fillet of sole. I personally like their home made pasta. It is the place we often choose... More

Description
Arcobaleno, a beautiful word, means rainbow in Italian. 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.

Gambiri alla Salas di Creama, shrimo and mushroom combination in wine sauce, which is serve with smooth and creamy mashed potatoes.
