    Located very close to the Albany Theatre makes Arco ideal for pre show dining. First impression was that the place was clean with nice decor. Staff were friendly. Food was very good, we had 3 courses and were happy with each offering. There was limited choice on the red wine. However, the Chianti we had was good. Overall we were very satisfied with our first visit to Arco and would happily return.

    Had to wait to be seated which isn't a problem, the main gripe was the food, ordered a Calzone Carne, contents were poor processed ingredients, pizza bread base was undercooked and like chewing leather, expected better for the price, won't be returning

    Starters absolutely brilliant, beautiful Bruschetta. Mains completely let us down, pork belly was very tough. We were told they would replace but after speak to the chef the replacement would have been the same. Beef short rib was returned and the second one was much improved. The pasta dishes and the lamb shank dish were very nice.

    Food was lovely, not many staff on shift for the amount of tables to be served in my opinion so waiting for drinks and ordering did take a while but the 2 staff serving were friendly and doing the best they could.

    Another lovely meal at Arco for girls Christmas night out. Really like the cosy feel of Arco. Had been before but was concerned about recent negative reviews but was not disappointed. Good service, some wine not available as changing menu but had red & rose which were both nice and good value. Food was delicious as always, Straganoff pasta was amazing and large portion, lamb shank fell off bone 😋 cannelloni lovely but could had eaten bigger portion. Was limited on time so no time to try cocktails but will be back. Thanks for great time

    Have been to Arco previously and enjoyed the food etc. Was not impressed with visit on 14/12/2023, quite a few of the dishes on the menu were not available. The bar closed fairly early for a Friday night, we tried to get drinks ar 10.40 pm but were told that the bar had closed

    Had a lovely evening with friends. Heating had broken down was very chilly at times. My mum put her coat on. Deserts were not the best. I can’t believe that a wine and lemonade was £16.

    A lovely restaurant that serves lovely food. Pizzas this time were a delight. The staff were very friendly and very attentive. The only complaint was the dessert. My Tiramusu was not a true tiramusa lacking in coffee and alcohol. Pity because my daughter loved her Bailey's Cheesecake

    Overpriced food. Not even average food. Think the chef had a night off and they raided the freezer. How can you charge £22 for a (trying to find a polite phrase) less than average pizza. London prices in an undesirable part of Coventry! The desserts at £8 were an absolute joke. Asked if they had zero beer and was told they have but they only have 1 bottle……. Come on this is 2023. Dont waste your money!!

    Unfortunately lots of drinks unavailable (draught beer / coke). My starter was forgotten so had to wait 15-20 mins after my husbands starter came which then delayed dinner. The ambience felt off - bright lights/ quiet so could overhear lots of conversations. Food was nice but consisted of things that weren’t listed on the menu. All in all - it wasn’t a bad experience but it would put me off returning any time soon.

    Although the service and food were good, it was very expensive all round. I ordered 2 glasses of wine and was horrified to see the final bill which showed the wine was £12 per glass! This is unacceptable pricing and should be pointed out to customers when ordering! I was very shocked and the cost would put me off going there again

    We arrived at the restaurant and was ignored by bar staff until finally someone noticed we were standing to be booked in for our reservation, a random women who looked like a customer finally sat us down.. We sat down and decided on drinks and food but took the waiter 20 minutes to take our order, food was lovely, just a shame on the service throughout, we finished our dinner and again no one seem to have noticed we had finished until I requested for the bill.. We wanted dessert, but went against it in the end because we didn't want to wait any longer to be served / order taken.

    We found the staff really helpful particularly as one of our party has severe mobility issues and they assisted him to access the restaurant from the pavement and back on departure. We found the service attentive but not intrusive. The food was simple but tasty and plentiful Would certainly visit again. Ideal venue for pre theatre meal for the Albany Theatre.

    Table booked for 5.30pm. Had to keep asking for food as we had theatre booked at 7.30pm and explained this to staff. Didn't have a lot of the stuff on the menu. Main meal arrive at 7.10pm, one of them at 7.15pm. Wolfed it down, paid while eating and left quickly to get to theatre. Food was nice but this was too rushed. Didn't have this problem last time we came but this will put me off going again sorry.

    Soooo disappointed. Recommended by a friend but will not return. 3 of us booked. The waitress agreed to move us as I had booked high table, so that was appreciated. However the service was so poor, waited an age for our mains. My risotto was more like fried rice, albeit nice it was definitely not risotto. My friends risotto was stodg we had to ask twice where our drinks were and our food . In hindsight we should have complained but we hadn’t seen each other for years so didn’t want to spoil the evening . Such a shame
