Everything was good and pleasant, but the size of the servings was unusually low for an Italian dinner.

This is a delightful little place. Sat outside, service was extremely nice and friendly and the food is delicious. Pasta portions are a bit small, but then again, the prices are very low. Desserts were yummy too.

This was the worst meal we have had on the upper West Side. The soup special was salty and tasteless as were the pastas. The special beet salad had canned beets and tired greens. Portions were also small although this was a good thing because there was less poor food to eat.

Had dinner on July 11, 2014 and the octopus and pasta were really outstanding. the portion of the pasta main course was smallish, but the taste was truly excellent.

Ate there with a friend last week before going to a concert in Harlem and we were delighted with the food, service, and price. Will be back--often!

Family own and run restaurants like Arco. Daniele and Francesa have offered up a little touch of the home country not only with delicious dishes (kale salad, yes; Alisanzas Di Sardegna, yes; semifreddo, yes, yes, yes) but with their personal touch. They are there on the floor night after night tending diners, and they have opened their doors to the community. Their staff is down to earth and attentive. The food is great value. The only downside to Arco is that it is off the beaten path of Bway and folks don't see it or think of it. Worth the detour.

I lived in Italy 7 years and rarely do I get that gastronomic excitement that I used to take for granted. The handmade gnocchetti alla montanara were melt in your mouth good, with a creamy bacon sauce that was tasty without being heavy. The semifreddo (chilled cake) we had for dessert was nothing short of exciting. If you like authentic Italian food, you will be thrilled by this place. I don't live near this place but I would travel far to eat there. Memorable and delightful.
