We've been to Arlo's twice and both times left feeling we should have gone somewhere else. There was only one server and a hostess? The server was trying to serve the customers while the hostess was sitting at the bar flipping through her iPhone. The server also was bartending. It took over a half an hour for our food to...

Four of us stopped here for drinks and ended up having dinner after speaking with the owner who was very personable. Everyone in our group loved their meal in this quiet little corner of Sandpoint.

I have not eaten at this establishment for quite some time. But when I did it was very unorganized and very, very mediocre food... They have stayed open for a while so maybe they're doing something right, hopefully they've improved... I will give them another try

My husband and I visited Arlos for a romantic dinner. We were extremely impressed. Lisa was incredibly hospitable and Ben cooked us the most amazing meals! Best veal Parmesan and the pasta with scallops and shrimp was awesome. When you are in Sandpoint definitely give Arlos a try. Delicious authentic Italian food with a wonderful atmosphere!!

I recently had the chance to try this cozy little restaurant and was not disappointed. The pastina soup was just what I needed on a cool rainy afternoon! Service was great, although it was nearing the end of their lunch shift, of which we weren't aware, they did not make us feel rushed; rather offered local navigation information and were... More

Home style and low key, the food was fresh and well prepared. More comfort than epicurean the use of garlic was a bit heavy, but still tasty. The wine list was small but well chosen and quite affordable. The service was good, but this is a small place, so the staff was limited. Would go again if we ever travel... More

Three of us had a business dinner on the patio this week. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. I had the Penne Alla Panna with sausage and I have to say I savored every bite. It was incredible. The flavors were well balanced, the sausage was not overpowering and the added cream gave a sweetness to the dish... More

We were here for lunch and we were very pleased with the food, the service, and the view from the deck. The chicken Alfredo is delicious! No canned or frozen sauce here! Made from fresh ingredients by a very talented chef. The garlic bread is yummy, too.

Labor Day and business was slow. Four of us sat in the deck and ordered drinks and food. 45 minutes later our side salads arrived. Service from the kitchen was extremely slow and no apologies or comps were offered. Food was good but not worth the wait. I would not visit this restaurant again.

Please accept our apology that the service was slower than expected. We make almost everything from scratch and that quality takes time. Please reconsider and give us another chance! More

I've been here twice with my boyfriend. We sat at the bar one evening and chatted with the owner for our first visit. She was friendly, down to earth and not overbearing. The suggested wine complemented our delicious food. Great atmosphere and if you sit outside you get a lovely view of the river. One of our favorite spots!
