Reviewed 6 September 2018

Just arrived Rome from USA and found this gem by accident. Absolutely loved this place!

We were hesitant at first as we could not interpret the menu being in Italian. A nice girl at another table assisted us with interpretations. Our server Simona tried but then we found she called the owner, Franco. He came to our table from what we suppose was home to make sure our needs were met. Our selection of three courses shared by our party of four was amazing. The pasta is like I’ve never had, sauces were flavorful, tomatoes and fresh herbs were apparent and delicious. Our wine was affordable and the bread baked to perfection! We left with four bottles of wine to enjoy when we arrived to our destination - Positano! One week of dining and we have been talking of Franco and the staff and menu. We crave the fresh past we had and cannot find in Positano. The food has been good but not something as memorable as this place. Our journey to Tuscany begins in two days and we have made plans to stop back in to Arcinboldi again as we need another fix of this delectable authentic fresh Italian cuisine and hospitality. Oh and pizza is available but I think only evenings. So glad we had our meals which was very affordable. Bravo Franco! We will see you Saturday!

Two weeks in Italy. Rented a car in Rome and drove to Positano. Made a spontaneous stop expecting the renowned pizza. Googled restaurants nearby and Arcimboldi was the nearest “Pizzeria”. Didn’t know at the time that every restaurant in Italy seems be called a Pizzeria which doesn’t necessarily mean they serve pizza (go figure). Arcimboldi makes pizza but not for lunch - only for dinner. So we got pastas, meats and salads and shared amongst the four of us. The waitresses didn’t speak English but we managed to communicate effectively. Then Marco, the owner, shows up because his staff called him at home and told him that there were some Americans there. Marco is amazingly friendly and hospitable. We ended up spending well over an hour there and didn’t want to leave. The food was absolutely amazing. The pasta exceeded all of our expectations. Now we have completed our stay in Positano and are headed to Tuscany. We are looking forward to eating lunch at Arcimboldi once again!

had a great impromptu lunch. When the wait realized we were a bunch of crazy American's that speak no Italian they summoned the owner Franco. Franco spoke perfect English and treated us like royalty. Gave us good prices on wine and some extra food at no charge.

My husband and I were driving from Sorrento to Rome, on our way to the airport I decided to find a spot to eat. Looked at the nearby areas, and found this gem! Amazing food.. Frank attended us, he was great, what an interesting man. He spoke perfect English as he lived in the states. So worth the stop! Thank you for the delicious food!

We stopped for lunch thinking we would grab a quick pizza, but we were PLEASANTLY surprised to find an amazing sit down restaurant! 2 course meal with a side for only 10 euros per person and the meal was one of the best in ALL of Italy! Highly recommend it. Family friendly too!
