Arborio, a great New Plymouth restaurant, see you there!
Great night out, booked for a birthdays few weeks out and requested a good spot and they delivered a awesome spot looking out over the water, service was really good and food was really tasty! Will definitely be back next time we’re in town. Thanks
Efficient booking system. A very friendly welcome on arrival. We all enjoyed our lunch choices. Nice environment enables diners to to chat easily and enjoy the occasion.
We dined here with friends who were from out of town as we often come here and it is always wonderful. Again this was the same - the atmosphere was so impressive and we were greeted so nicely when we arrived and were seated. We ordered the platter for two and it was delicious and plenty for four as an entree. Our friends were very impressed with the selection of tasty dips meats and chorizo, prawns and calamari and enjoyed every bit of it as did we. 3 of us ordered the Caesar salad and the chicken included was very generous. I am on a low Fodmap diet and the waiter was very helpful asking the chefs if there was onion or garlic (which I avoid) in the poaching or dressing and it really was very helpful. The other gentleman in our party ordered the bacon wrapped chicken and his taste buds were going crazy delighting in it all - not exactly sure what he was eating but loving it all. We all enjoyed desert of the churros and the sorbet and ice cream. Altogether we highly recommend this cafe/restaurant and the evening was incredible in every way. Thank you everyone. It sure impressed our friends and we as locals will be back again.
Absolutely love Aborio. The food and the ambiance is amazing.

Great service and food - highly recommend
A great night was had by 31 of us to Celebrate Mums 90th Birthday, lots of comments as to the great food quality. The service as before, was second to None, friendly and helpful staff, which added to a Happy evening. Well done Aborio, and a big thankyou to Sudarshan, for his professional eye to detail, and friendly touch.
Had a great night, everyone’s meals were good. Same complaint that my husband and I have had every time we have been there - way too noisey. The only reason we don’t go there often. No chance of talking amongst your group. Most positive note, the staff were great
Had a lovely night Fantastic service and wonderful food Will be back
