I recently saw some success calling a python geoprocessing script from Node.js. I was also thinking of using flask instead of an arcgis server geoprocessing service.

Does anybody know if there are restrictions on calling arcpy from non-esri web service from a license perspective?

As commented by @JasonScheirer:

In general, you will need an ArcGIS for Server license to talk to any ArcGIS software across a network, including via a web service.
