Arni's is one restaurant that we always try to eat at when we visit Indy. The Arni's salad and pizza are top notch for our taste buds. Nice facility as well.

I grew up eating at Arni's in Lafayette and this place is the closest location to the airport. As soon as I arrive and before I leave I go to Arni's. I love how the meat on the pizza is chopped up so small, how the thin crust goes to the edge, and how the pieces are cut in squares.... More

Have started coming here every other Sunday for an early dinner. Try to sit in a booth in the bar. Justin is an excellent server who is always friendly. It seems that all the servers we have had in the bar are that way. We loved the stromboli sandwich with salads or th barbecue pizza with salads. All at a... More

Stopped here for lunch with a friend. We were greeted and seated right away by the hostess at 1230pm on a weekday. Our server came promptly and took our drink orders. We opted for the mini pizza and half salad lunch special. I love the pizza here because it's thin crust and their sausage and pepperoni is shredded. Makes it... More

If one is looking for a great atmosphere to watch their favorite sport live, look no further. I was impressed with the service and especially the food. The fish tacos were very mouth watering and tasty and there are ample screens to watch multiple events at the same time. The Packers win said it all on this trip and it... More

Had lunch with a friend and nice to find a place not terribly crowded over a holiday week. Service was really good. Always get their pizza which is my favorite on their menu. A little pricey for the size pizza compared to other nice pizza restaurants. I think it's time to get new menus as they are greasy and worn.

We occasionally meet at Arni's on 96th St when we're looking for a place with a casual atmosphere, plenty of seating for parties of 6-8 and a varied menu. On this visit there were 6 of us. We were seated at a round table that could easily have accommodated a couple more. Some wanted pizza, one person wanted an entire... More

While everyone was very friendly, the food was disappointing. The fried chicken salad was served with cold fried chicken. When I questioned the server, he took it back to the kitchen. They microwaved it and returned it with less chicken than it originally had. The rest of the food was fine, but we probably won't be back as there are... More

Went to Arni's in Indy on a nostalgia tour 33 years after moving to DC area. It was STILL delicious, high quality, excellent service and amazing pizza and salads. Can't beat an Arni's Junior salad and a Deluxe pizza. Some things DO stay the same.
