Great find in East Kilbride Village
We went to Arigo for an early dinner on a Monday evening. It was quiet but there were enough patrons to give it some atmosphere. The early evening menu had a nice choice of food, although we were disappointed that there was no pizza choice, as there was one on the 5pm sample menu. Added drinks, a side of focaccia, desserts and coffees and the bill was still just over £50 for two, so great value. Couldn’t fault any of the food!
Lovely Sunday lunch
Going to Arigo on a fixed price lunch deal, I wasn’t sure about what to expect, however from entering to leaving, it was fantastic. Staff were so lovely, all dishes were so tasty and well presented. Had a lovely relaxed atmosphere so we will return sooner rather than later.

Close to the Village Theatre
