Strong coffee and good kids menu - very nice breakfast meals. Pancakes and eggs bene were great. Right in the museum so the kids can go off and look while you wait for food. In summer they can play outside on the landing. Well worth a try. We will go back.

What a fantastic experience we had with a group of friends the other night. We had heard how great the Mid Winter Feast was and we were keen to try for ourselves. It was truly even better than we could have wished. The pizzas all looked so tasty.

The warm friendly atmosphere was enhanced by the lovely young waitress who couldn't do enough for us all night.

The chef needs to be congratulated for his combination of flavours and in his presentation of
his dishes.

We will definitely be back again soon. Highly recommend.

Been to this place many times and never had a disappointing meal. That's pretty impressive - restaurants tend to come and go in terms of standards, but Arborio is astonishingly consistent. For variety, we tried Gusto on Mother's Day and what a disaster! See my separate review. Back to Arborio it is.
