This restaurant has a Mom & Pop feel. Our tomato mozzarella salad was divine, and my hubby loved his veal parmesan!

We had a ate lunch there on a hot day (we wanted A/C) and were pleasantly surprised. Portions are a bit small for some people I would imagine, but my Fettuccine Alfredo was yummy and my hubby ate ever morsel of his sausage pasta. Definitely recommend the garlic bread. The atmosphere is okay- felt just a bit dated or something.... More

Again there needs to be a rating between "average and very good" During our stay in Sandpoint we had a family dinner out night so we walked to Arlo's and sat outside. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the people, all were friendly. We all pretty much had something different and there were no complaints. I don't think the food was... More

Great Italian restaurant. Loved the Veal Parm and the Veal Marsala. Garlic bread delicious! Great view, indoor or outdoor seating. Very nice waiter. Great atmosphere! Glad we saw it and asked around. I asked the owner of Sandpoint Watersports if it was a good place to eat, he said it was awesome! He was right! Will definitely come back next... More

Our server was great. Attentive, sweet, helpful. My nephews pasta had a 10-12 inch hair in it. One of those things that can happen, but based on the tiny serving, I didn't feel as though I should have been charged for his replacement meal. Bolognese was bland. Chicken parm sandwich was ok. Again, bland, but the chicken was juicy. Decent... More

Thank you for your business and feedback. We're glad to hear our service was on, but it's unfortunate that the food didn't match. We'd like another chance to prove we're better than just ok! Thanks again. More

Sorry but this place needs a major overhaul. Bad food in a stinky old rag and carpet infested environment. This place sure has seen better times and no one seems to be willing to spend a couple of dollars to at least upgrade the floors.

Actually Yuerg, everything was redone after Arlo's burned down. We're striving to create the intimate dining experience we loved in our New York City past. Sorry it wasn't for you. Also curious why you waited almost a year to post your review. Are you sure you have the right restaurant? More

Located downtown Sandpoiint. Arlos was easy to get to and like most of Sandpoint, easy free parking in front or in public lots. Again, like most everything in Sandpoint the service was friendly and quick. They had gluten free options. Tasty and reasonably priced. Would definitely go back to try other dishes.

The food is very good. Depending on where you sit the view would be nice. I felt a bit cramped, the ambiance is lacking. A nice locals hangout - so you know its good! I will be back, but not rushing until it is warm enough to be outside on the deck.

Cold and windy but upon entering the restaurant we were greeted warmly by the staff. A nice view. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. We had several "starters" to share and were amazed at how generous the savings were. We had a great server who helped us decide on our choices and she gave us some interesting information about...
