This hotel was very clean, modern and close to town. However the staff lacked personality and plain common manners. It doesn't take much to say good morning or good evening or even thank you. We were a bit disappointed that we could only have one...More

Dinner with family - all adults. We had antepasto platter and mains plus wine. Beautiful pork belly, really nice steak and the antepasto was really nice and such good value for money for the four of us. Really nice meal, always good at Arborio! Thanks

My family and I have been to Arborio twice and both times the starter was very good, but the main courses were very tasteless and greasy.

Went for lunch on a Monday. It was fairly busy with lots of moms and toddlers. The atmosphere was next with good water views. My food, the pizza, was average. I will say that the chicken burger, that someone at our table ordered, looked real...More
