    After spending a full day at the New Jersey Botanical Garden, a quick Internet search lead my partner and I to Arta. What an amazing find! The dining room was peaceful and quiet, the wait staff attentive and the food was excellant. Nice choice for an evening out for qualiy Italian food.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants! Every thing from the dressing on the butter and salad to the dessert is yummy! I had the John Dorry which was delicious with risotto, and the burrata appetizer so creamy and comforting. The dessert I had the bananas foster which they cook in front of you. Patrick was a fabulous waiter-If you go for a special occasion for 2 sit in the wine cellar-Go, you will not be sorry and you will go back again and again like I do-

    This is the ONLY restaurant I have ever booked more then once through OpenTable. It is overall excellent. Food is great. Service is great. Atmosphere is great. The only thing is it's location? Certainly it's worthy of a spot in Ridgewood, Hohokus, or any upscale Bergen County town environment with more foot traffic and exposure.

    I took a half hour ride to try Arta and must say it was worth the trip. Most of the reviews were spot on. In considering a restaurant, food is always most important , followed by service than ambiance. The ambiance is nothing special but the service and food is. My party of four all agreed. The service was great from the moment we entered and the food was presented well with the taste to match. Go and enjoy!

    "This is an elegant restaurant with a touch of class. We love the multiple dining choices. The food quality was very fresh and delicious as was the elegant presentations. The whole filleted Red Snapper with a lump crabmeat crust was a delight and the portion was copious. Sauces tend to be on the light side, which doesn't overpower the dishes. The drink list is extensive and moderately priced. You can't go wrong with this restaurant."

    Wish I found this place years ago. Who knew? Tucked away up in Ringwood, but outstanding Italian food and impeccable attentive friendly service. Very modestexterior, but not a pizza joint. This is a for-real white tablecloth place. Fresh sardines appetizer, lobster ravioli and the Veal Arta were all really good. Ended with ginger gelato. Delicious!

    "When you enter a restaurant and are greeted with smiling faces and professional, courteous attention, chances are that this is a sign of good things to come. In the case of Arta's this held true in every possible way and it is clear that this is an extremely well-managed establishment with a very high quality mindset. Everything was absolutely exquisite and the service was as good as it gets. The owner was friendly, enthusiastic, and gave us an extra dessert so we could try .Of course, it was delicious. I doubt that there is a single item on the menu that would disappoint, so all I can say is try this place...it is truly a neighborhood gem, deserving of each and every star I have given them."

The owners are attentive and can be found by the bar always happy to socialize with you and listen to your feedback. Dinner at Arta's is always a very special, very satifying night."

    "Everything about Artas is top notch. it has all right ingredients from the friendly and accommodating staff, to the ambience, to the GREAT food. I had an octopus appetizer not only delicious , but beautifully presented and tender as could be. The fillet mignonette was cooked and seasoned to perfection so was the Bronzino the fish dish . Dessert was no let down either. Like a great story, our time here again was great , from beginning , middle to end. We will be back for more."

    Normally when I think of Arta, I associate it with great food and excellent service. When my associate suggested we take his 4 year old granddaughter there, I hesitated. Boy was I wrong. The attentive service she received was amazing. The service was excellent and the strawberries and ice cream desert made a big hit!

    This was my first time at Arta and it turned out to be excellent. The food was great overall, the service was right on, prompt, and very conscientious, the wine they served was awesome, desserts were great, presentation was wonderful, and the atmosphere was elegant and quiet, just the way I like it. The only recommendation for improvement I have is that the calamari appetizer was a little gummy and needs to be more well done I guess, but that is the only fault we had that night. I will definitely be returning when I can.

    "Awesome restaurant, a definite stand out in town" Probably the best Italian restaurant in the area in terms of food, ambiance, services, etc. I recommend getting the bufala mozzarella if you usually order the caprese salad - THE most legit piece of mozzarella cheese you will have outside of Italy #cheesefanaticspeaking. The bread, olives, parmesan cheese ,they give as complimentary very nice touch . After reading all the mouth watering specials, I decided to try the Halibut and my husband the Veal Chop just delicious food . Must have the Zabaglione for dessert . The food was wonderful and the service as well. I would recommend it .

    I made my reservation on the advice of a friend!!! My new favorite restaurant!!! The food was so fresh and DELICIOUS!!! Everyone was so attentive and friendly! We felt as if we were family! We were a party of 6 and everyone had such a great time! Do you know how you get when the food is so good? You just stop talking and eat?? Well that's how we were! When we did start talking, we were raving about how delicious the food was. We each had something different, from chicken with sausage and potatoes (mine) yummy, yummy!! to pasta with shrimp!! (outrageous)!! I recommend Arta's restaurant to everyone!

    Went here for the first time for our wedding anniversary. I mentioned the occasion when making the reservation, everyone we were served by all night told us Happy Anniversary - nice touch. Food was excellent - Octopus salad was very tender and nice and spicy. My wife had Sea Bass, I had Bronzini, both were outstanding and not swimming in sauce or butter. Tiramisu for desert with ice cream was a nice topper and the coffee was excellent. Service was very good and attentive, silverware changed between courses, crumbs swept away, etc. Prices are steep for Ringwood, but for a special occasion it was a special dinner. My wife was very happy and told all her friends about it, so I am happy too.

    Went to Arta Restaurant to celebrate my birthday. It was recommended by co-workers especially for the fish entrees. It did not disappoint. Husband raved about the Bronzino. Daughter enjoyed fried calamari appetizer and Sole Provenziale. I had the Risotto with Shrimp and Scallops - wonderfully creamy and rich. All the food beautifully plated and served. Waitstaff attentive but discreet. Lovely experience. Will definitely go again.

    My husband and I went there for my birthday and were very pleasantly surprised. The service was very good and the food was superb. I had their chicken special and asked if it could come without one of the ingredients, which they were able to easily accommodate. My husband had the lobster ravioli, which was made fresh on site and stuffed perfectly with lots of lobster. We had such a nice time and plan to go back again soon! Great find!
