Here you can enjoy Arborio’s warm and genuine service, welcoming tropical decor and tasty, generous fare.
The emphasis at Arborio is on flavour, using the freshest seasonal produce that can be sourced for our delicious International cuisine along with stone oven pizzas, pastas and risottos.
Arborio, a great New Plymouth restaurant, see you there!
Great food ! The fish I had melted in my mouth not rubbery at all. Although when we turned up the seating we booked was perfect but so close I was pretty much touching backs with a stranger, this was quickly sorted by staff who moved table back a bit. Was a bit hard to tuck my self in on those tall stools. Every thing else was great your team of staff were lovely and great energy. Hope this makes sense.
Great night, fantastic service. My daughter loved having her birthday dinner at Arborio.
Had a lovely lunch, food was delish and plenty choice
Love coming to Arborio garunteed a great meal and great service each time

Excellent food, Excellent service. Highly reccommended!!
Always an absolute pleasure to eat delicious food and drink fabulous cocktails. They always accommodate any requests we have and the service is on point.
Amazing food and service, thank you for making my daughters birthday a special time. Your staff went out of their way to make her night a special one. The courses were incredible, the flavours to die for. I recommend the char grilled Angus porterhouse, it was perfectly cooked and melted in the mouth. A big thank you to our waitress (sorry I can’t remember her name) she made our dining experience that little bit extra special.
Beautiful meal thank you, best calamari on the planet
I Couldnt decide where to take my Mum and Dad for their 49th Wedding Anniversary? Booked in at Arborio and we all had a very lovely evening, the staff are great! the Atmosphere was perfect ( I may be partial to Tropical plants ;) We all ordered different dishes and everyone was very happy with the food. Great Cocktails too <3 Thanks Team.
We had such a wonderful dinner here and the food was very delicious. The staff were friendly and commentating. Would definitely be visiting this restaurant again.
always a great experience at Arborio!
Would be nice to see some more normal food as well
We were travelling with an 89yr old who is very difficult to please. Waitress Ngapera was incredibly accommodating and the kitchen was able to cook the food to meet her (extensive) needs. At the end of the night she said that it was impressive and fantastic. Thank you all. It was the lowest stress meal we’ve had this trip. Much gratitude.
Service was great. Food was lovely. I often go here & am not disappointed.
Meals were great and everything was fine but it took a long time for our mains to arrive
Fabulous event thanks to all involved. Great team work.
Fantastic meal at Arborio, having 2 young children out at dinner can be a little nerve wracking but they were warmly received and food came out quick which made everything run smoothly- lovely waitress made us all feel very welcome. Entertaining family from overseas we were proud to show them our favourite restaurant in New Plymouth. The seafood linguini was a little too sweet but that was a minor issue. Thanks for a great evening for our whole family- make sure you grab dessert, totally worth stuffing yourself for!
Fab service - ordered ahead and everything arrived to the table just after we got there - only small negative is the change to the Antipasto Platter which was my favourite but the Squid has a new coating that is quite sweet and not to my taste (preferred the old recipe)
The setting is great, interior eclectic and interesting, staff awesome, food delicious and well presented. Excellent dining experience, thanks Arborio!
We were given the perfect seating arrangement for our group - service was prompt and the meals were delicious!
Awesome meal , amazing service Thank you again
