With a dedication to authentic Sardinian Italian cuisine, Arco Cafe has been serving residents of New York City since 2014. When our owners, brother-and-sister team Daniele and Francesca Fiori, first opened the doors to Arco Cafe, it was with a mission to provide local and visiting New Yorkers with a taste of Italy’s finest foods. At the same time, we wanted to make sure every guest who walked into our home felt like they were being treated as family. Arco Cafe works with a dedicated team of individuals who are committed to promoting a welcome environment accompanied by dishes filled with rich flavors that will keep guests coming back for more.
Who We Are
Arco Cafe is the neighborhood home to handcrafted, fresh pasta in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed for families, solo diners, and friends from all walks of life, Arco Cafe was born out of a need to provide healthy, regional Italian dishes to the New York community.
Who are we? We are a family. Daniele and Francesca Fiori may be the brother and sister duo who started Arco, but we consider everyone on our staff to be family. In fact, most of our employees have been with us since our inception, proving time and time again their commitment and dedication to keeping authentic, delicious Sardinian Italian cuisine alive.
Who are you? Part of our family! Whether it is your first or fiftieth time dining with us, Arco Cafe wants you to feel like you are one of us. Chat with our servers, ask us questions, tell us your dietary restrictions; we want to know it all so we can help you have the most enjoyable experience. We love when our customers introduce themselves, so please do not hesitate! Become a friendly face that we will recognize time and time again.
Dedication, commitment, and care are at the forefront of everything we do at Arco Cafe. While many of the dishes at Arco may be familiar to Italian food aficionados, we want everyone to experience the love and joy that goes into our cooking. Every dish is made with fresh, seasonal ingredients that are locally sourced whenever possible. Our menu includes sustainable vegetables, meat, and fish and also offers several vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options.
Arco Cafe is neither a chain nor a corporation; we are a community interested in giving our guests the most delicious Sardinian dishes New York has to offer. From day one, we have made our very own pastas and sauces in the same “home cooking” manner that we grew up with back in Italy. We are a small, intimate neighborhood cafe with a passion for excellence in every regard.
