Our group of 7 regularly returns to Arcobaleno, a family-run Italian restaurant that's a perennial favorite with locals and long-term expats in the know. Tonight we enjoyed: caprese salad, caesar salad, eggplant parmigiana, spicy calamari fritti, "cordon bleu maison", grilled mackerel steak, sole florentine, and I had a divine pork chop with mushroom & red wine sauce.

Five of us went and everyone ordered something different. It was all brought out at once, which is quite unusual in Thailand. My food (spinach manicotti) must have been finished first and just set on a counter until the rest of the dishes were completed because it was barely warmer than room temp when I got it. The spinach was... More

Nine years ago we discovered this restaurant and have been back every year since. The food is consistently good. My favorite is the eggplant Parmesan. It's hard to think about venturing away. The pastas are superb. They must be making the sauces when you order because they are so fresh. We literally think about this place when we are back... More

One of my favorite restaurants in town! Excellent pasta, the freshest sauces, homemade rolls with herb-butter, and home-made salad dressing. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxing! Always great service! Perfect for a date night or family gatherings!

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.
