“Amazing pasta and veal!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Nice simple italian food, if you are after a quality meal then this is a good place to go. Prices are slightly inflated due to location, but decent food.

“Interesting Italian Fare”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

I've been all over Italy but I've never been to Sardinia. I suspect if I did go I would find a restaurant very similar to Arcodoro. Much like the Italian language with its regional nuances, Italian food has regional nuances and we all liked the Sardinian flavors we found at Arcodoro. The emphasis on seafood we expected and hoped for was delivered...the Sardinian octopus salad and paella were delicious. Service was attentive...a little pricey but I thought worth it...recommended.

“Interesting menu”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

I've had mixed experiences here, otherwise I might be tempted to rate it Very Good or perhaps even Excellent.

The food is quite different to your "average" Italian restaurant, and I like that aspect since I get to try things I normally wouldn't. Service has been a mixed bag and not in general brilliant. Rather expensive for the overall experience as well. But try it for the different menu.

“Poor service and unfriendly attitude”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

We stopped in for wine and dinner on the patio. We were served wine that had gone bad, so asked for a new glass. The replacement was bad too. Food was overpriced and mediocre. Decided to leave, they tried to charge us for the wine. When we objected, they came back with an even larger check with a "forced gratuity" of 18 percent.
Save yourself the hassle avoid this place else. There is a great spot just steps away, Grand Lux.
