We dined at Arni's on east 96th Street yesterday with out family and enjoyed the wide selection of menu items available. I was considering the spicy wings, but selected the Meaty Lovers Pizza instead and it was very tasty. They offer wraps, wings, fries, burgers, pizza, salads, pasta, etc. etc. There is something here for everyone. Our 14-month-old granddaughter found... More

There were eight of us in town for a funeral, we met there at 7:15 on a Friday night. We did not have to wait and the service was great. We ordered 4 pizzas, Voodoo pasta & 2 side salads. I've been to Arnie's before at this location and the former location on 86th street. I've always ordered the same... More

You can beat the Arni's Junior or Senior Salad! Be sure to ask for extra garlic, no charge. Love their pizza, they have had a deal going with Yelp, just sign in to take advantage of ANY 14" pizza for just $10!!

Went here for a dinner & we were not disappointed. From their salads to their cheesy bread to the create your own pizza everything was phenomenal. The setting is more of a sports bar but is separated by a wall to the dining area & is a nice low-key place to enjoy dinner or they have a patio available. The... More

We were driving to Nashville and stopped here on our way. Not the fanciest place but the food was very good. The southern fried chicken salad was so good and big enough for two people to split. And the pizza was very good too. We had good service too.

If you want a consistently good sports bar type atmosphere, this is a good choice. Lots of sandwiches and pizza; and some pastas, Short wine list and pretty good beer list. It is family friendly. Service is average or better but can be a bit inconsistent.

Nice neighborhood place to go. Been a while since we've been here. Super variety. A step above the usual bar-type food. Our table had 3 salads, Mediterranean, Cobb & Southern Fried chicken...all were good. 1 had the gyros, which were flavorful but the meat was overcooked. Nice inside and they are always friendly. Will visit again.

We have tried many pizza places in the area since moving here 3 years ago, but last week we finally tried Arni's after we were referred there by a friend. It was my favorite classic thin crust cheese pizza to date. Worth trying out. Will return soon.

Pizza is good, wings are great. Staff was nice and knowledgeable. I like a waiter or waitress that can give good recommendations for new folks and I wasn't lead astray. Would eat there again.
