Our Story

New York Italian recipes in Sandpoint, Idaho 

Normally, in order to get authentic New York style Italian, you would have to be on the east coast. Fortunately, Arlo’s has been bringing New York to North Idaho for over 20 years.

Tom, a northwest boy turned long time New Yorker, along with the NY native Arlo’s decided to start a new chapter in Sandpoint, ID by opening a restaurant. “The Arlo side of the family has always been in the service industry,” Jesse says. “My great-great-grandfather was a macaroni maker in New York.”

Arlo’s began with an all-original menu crafted by Chris, who had found success as a well-known chef in New York working at restaurants like Sal Anthony’s S.P.Q.R., Tribeca Grill, and more. After the restaurant was up and running, he returned to New York for nearly 15 years, and now he’s back in Sandpoint for retirement.


What People are Saying

…best pizza in town!!!!!”

After thoroughly enjoying my chicken marsala dinner, I ordered a pizza to go for lunch the next day…sausage & mushroom and substituted their garlic sauce for the red sauce…absolutely delicious (it smelled so good in the car on the ride home I couldn’t wait for lunch today so i had a slice…amazing!!!!!). Was just as good cold the next day…perfect neopolitan pizza. Crust is thin in the center and bubbly and chewy at the crust with a perfect light char. Can’t wait to have another and another+++…best pizza in town!!!!!”

This is obviously ran by people that care about community.

We enjoyed Arlo’s on Saturday for the first time. The place was very busy for good reason. The staff works together like a well oiled machine. They seem to genuinely care about each others success and that directly ties into the success of the restaurant. Our server, Cara, was a true professional. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was charming. We especially appreciated the live guitar music and singing. This is obviously ran by people that care about community.
