A word from Arturo's Ristorante - Floral Park
Table-side cooking is alive and delicious at Arturo's, where even on busy evenings, the staff prepares certain dishes and sauces at your table. Service at Arturo's is professional and friendly. Antonio's son, Tommy works here full time as manager and has the same love for the business as his father. The newly decorated private party room has the same elegance as the restaurant with tall tapered candels and fresh flowers on the tables, comfortable upholstered chairs and original oil paintings. For your special occasion or any night of the week, dining at Arturo's is a special treat. It's always a delicious experience at Arturo's.

    I took my girl friend there for the first time. I was so impressed as she was also. The family run business is a class act. They are hands on people who know how not only to cook, but know how to give their dinner guest the ROYAL treatment. This will be OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT.

    Not only crepes are made flambé in this restaurant; so are assorted pastas in vodka sauce! Our eggplant rollatini [stuffed with ricotta cheese] was the best that we have ever had -- anywhere. For those who don’t want to order from the menu, nor try any of the day’s specials, a phenomenal buffet cart is wheeled out for one’s perusal. The music is audible, but muted, so it does not interfere with conversation. The wall artwork is excellent for setting a mood. My husband's chicken and thinly sliced sausage over a bed of broccoli di rabe in a terrific garlic sauce was exquisite. My stupendous pasta dish had three kinds of mushrooms and also prosciutto; the sauce was so good that I would gladly order just that and eat it with a spoon! Dessert was perfect. My Italian [riccota, not mascarpone] cheesecake was the best ever).

    Well prepared classic Italian fare although, with a roving guitarist stopping at each table taking your musical requests. Food was very enjoyable however service, was slow and inattentive. On two occasions, we had to request silver to eat our meal and a coffee order did not arrive with the rest of the dessert orders, and this was on a slow weekday evening. Waiters didn't even seem to know how to describe dishes when asked. Food gets a thumbs up, but service a thumbs down.

    Excellent traditional italian food. our waiter was not great, service was spotty, but having been here before, several times, this is not the norm. maybe he was new? usually the service is top notch as well. authentic meat sauce with gnocchi bolognese was great as was the chicken with proscuitto and cheese.

    This local establishment has been around for years and can be easily overlooked. But it is truly worth the experience. From the valet parking to the welcoming interior, you just know that you will enjoy your meal. The food is outstanding, especially the Antipasti cart where you can literally make your own dish from a wide selection of favorites and unique items. The entrees are ample, reasonably priced and include a wide variety of choices from pasta to meat and fish. The service is attentive without being intrusive and makes for a very relaxing experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

    Traditional old world atmosphere. Nice menu. Good wine. Felt rushed before we were seated the waiter asked what we wanted to drink. Impersonal service until Roberto, the owner's son and chef sat and talked with us. This was our second time there this season and the place was empty both times. Too bad because the food is really good.

    Although the service was good, I did not like the timing of food getting served. I have been to other restaurants that know exactly how to time there so one does not feel rushed. I was also a little disappointed in how the other patrons were dressed. A couple next to us had on casual shorts and tops. I thought they should have been at a clam bar on the beach. For the money spent, I would go to Piccolo Venezia before returning to Arturo's.

    For a first date, I was asked to pick a restaurant. I wanted to go somewhere I had never been before. I've always heard good things about Aturo's, so I figured "why not"? I told my date about the place and he was all for it. The food and conversation flowed well, the pinot noir was delicious and the service spot on. Their special dessert of vanilla ice cream, strawberries and this velvety cream along with a cappuccino, was a delight. Although it was a bit pricey for a first date, the evening was an overall success. :-)

    The food in this classic old world Italian gem is the driving force behind its many years of success! Beginning with the complimentary Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (Parmesan), through to the Strawberries with Zabaione for dessert, nothing served disappointed us. Tommy our server was attentive and courteous.

    very disappointing. We have visited on many occasions and always enjoyed. However, this past Friday the food and service was awful. Worse than that was that I don't think the staff could care less about our experience. Normally barely touched food begs a question. No one bothered. my question is why would I go back there? My answer. I won't.

    We had a wonderful dinner. The food is prepared very well. We had the torta primavera as an appetizer and it was so good. The pasta dishes are delicious and the bronzino I had for the main course was moist and tender. The waiter filleted it at the table. We hope to go back soon.

    I love the friendly atmosphere while at the same time the elegant dining experience. I enjoy the special pasta dishes that are made at table side. The main dishes are tasty and the portion size is incredible. My most favorite part of Arturos is the Zambione which is their signature dessert. It is made for you table side, strawberries, ice cream and a luscious creamy topping. I've been going to Arturos for many years and I always have a wonderful meal and dining experience. Thank you Tony and Staff so keeping Arturos the way it always was.

    I have been to this restaurant over the years with a group of college friends. I recommended this palce for dinner with my best friend and his wife. The 4 of us were seated right next to the music. A musician with an amp and karaoke, singing songs. The chicken dish I ordered (scapariello) was not good. The chicken was "flabby" and no dark meat was to be found, though I was told dark meat was in the dish. Also, 2 tiny pieces of sausage, no potato, no flavor. It was swimming in vinegar. When I called the manager over, he asked me "what should I do with this"? The dish was a mess, The excuse I got was that it was Lent and that they were a little off their game. Then comp the entree, and take the loss, not the loss of the customer.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    The only part of the Zagat rating that was accurate was the price. Over-rated and over priced. Their reputation preceeded them and while the wine list was exceptional and the service very good, that's where it stopped. My Oso Buco was covered in a red sauce that tasted like it came from a jar, served on a bed of what was listed as safron risoto which was actually bland yellow rice with a side of diner vegatables(?) The cheese ckae we ordered for dessert was very dry, probably from sitting out on the dessert cart. It was a bit disappointing for Valentine's Day.

    I personally like Olive Garden better because it costs about $20 less for a meal for two, you get salad and hot bread, and their food has more flavor. I also didn't like the bread they used to make their bruschetta. Their bread is not all that delicious either. It certainly wasn't hot. I know this sounds like a bad review, but the place really wasn't all that bad. The food was decent and they have great service. It's just a little bland for my taste. I went on Valentines day. I like the fact that they take reservations. That way you don't have to wait 2 hours to get a table during peak eating days and hours. For me this is a nice place to go for special occasions, but if I went here on a regular basis, I'd be in the poor house.

    I have been going to this restaurant for over 25 yrs... I hadn't been there in quite awhile and bought a guy for our first date. The restaurant is quite and romantic and the food was so great! We order an antipesto which was made perfect for two. The main course came and it was just as good! The sevice could not have been better they where attentive and polite. It was nice and quite so we didn't have to yell over the table to hear one another. The Valet parking was a plus as it was a cold night. My experience could not have been better and we will be back again very soon....
