    Clean, professional and solid. Some of the menu items are curious -- a breaded pork chop, fried brussel sprouts and sweet potato hash for a summer special? -- and the majority of the pasta is most decidedly not fresh, but it's a night place to take a break from your own cooking. You are always greeted warmly, waited on patiently, and leave feeling you made a good choice.

    As always the food and service were fine....though my veal chop was so good it was dangerous...you know "food to kill for". Fortunately, we have a credit card. Seriously, a fine place always. Try the appetizer for two while you're at it.

    Equal to the North End. The food is absolutely OUTSTANDING! The scallops, shrimp and lobster were cooked to perfection...all so tender. The pasta was superb! My friend had veal parm and loved it...Great sauces on each meal. It was her first time there and she said she's going to bring her family soon.

    I am a frequent patron and lately, have been less than pleased. The last time I went, 2 days ago, the bread brought to the table was compressed,almost like sandwich bread, the bruschetta was on paper thin slices of toast, like melba toast and our entrees, were minuscule! It was lunch time, but the portions have been reduced substantially. How sad.

    The place was packed on our Saturday night visit. Went when they opened as we knew it would be busy and it didn't take long for every table to be filled. Our meal went without a hitch. Reliable as usual. Great salads, pastas, and veal made for an enjoyable dinner. I love the consistency I've seen here as of late. One of the top choices in the area.

    My wife and I go to Arturos about 6 times a year - always have a very good meal - this time was no different. One feature is the variety of specials that the restaurant has and this time I had the chicken tenderloin with lobster sauce, jumbo shrimp and potato crostini - excellent combination of flavors! My wife had her usual - and always very good - veal parmigiana. Booth seating is always our preferred choice as at the tables in the middle, it can feel chaotic at times. Probably because it's a loud room on a busy night.

    We took an old friend who was visiting from out of state. BIG mistake. The only way we could have a conversation was for all of us to lean in to the middle of the table, face to face to face. It was so loud the server had to read the specials to each of us individually. I'll only go back if I'm alone or with my ex wife.

    It was a busy evening on Mother's Day but Arturo's was prepared. The service was terrific! Two wonderful servers worked together to make our evening flawless. The food was delicious and cooked perfectly. I had the filet special and it was amazing. I substituted italian risotto for the potatoes and it was superb. Couldn't have been a better experience and it all ended with a rose for the moms.

    6 for dinner @7:30pm on a Saturday night. We were seated promptly, but had to wait a while for the waitress to come to our table to take our drink order, then waited a while for the drinks. The list of specials was lengthy and her delivery was poor - also, with the noise level, it was very hard to hear and half our table had lost interest after she told us the soup of the day. When our food did arrive, it was tasty. Average portions sizes, where no-one took any entree leftovers home, and there might have been 1 slice of pizza left from those that ordered it. Decent prices - $12/pizza, $18-$22 for chicken entrees, more for veal/seafood. Overall, our party was happy with the meal but we didnt leave until after 9:30pm, so don't be in a rush.

    We eat here regularly as a treat. The food is delicious, interesting and well prepared. The wine list is good with reasonable finds. Atmosphere is pleasant. The antipasto plate was good. We ordered off specials. She had a chicken over broccoli that was well seasoned, tasty and not overcooked. I had a cod dish with couscous that somehow turned into orzo pasta, but it was still good with a seafood (shrimp, mussels and something else) in a tomato reduction. Service was spotty. She was friendly, but the table next to us got all the attention. They seemed to be friends with the staff or something. Annoying to be ignored. Had planned on more drinks, then coffee and dessert but finally gave up and left. Will probably go back, though.

    Arturo's was recommended to me by 3 people. It was good. I guess I was expecting something "outstanding". My Mom and I both ordered dishes that had chicken in it. The chicken was described as being "grilled". It was not tender, and actually quite chewy, and did not taste, nor look like it was grilled. Like I said, it wasn't bad, it wasn't great, it was just good.

    We've eaten at Arturo's a number of times with our family but tonight service was very slow, and sadly the experience not great. We initially attributed this to the busy evening, though as the restaurant dwindled down to just two parties left, our thoughts changed. We were just finally eating our meals close to 9:30-10pm (8:15pm Rsv)when the staff began cleaning and setting up the function room, presumably for the next day. Huge carts of chairs and shouting staff began coming in and out, just at our table, which was situated directly outside the function room door. It was very disturbing to us trying to eat our dinner.We did tell our waitress, who told us she informed the manager, but we never saw him/her. It truly ruined our dinner.

    Since it's tucked into a strip mall, we sometimes forget about Arturo's but are never disappointed when we go back. Nice, neighborhood, family-run restaurant. They always seem to have a long list of specials which we often try. Service is always quick and friendly and the owner usually pops by the table to make sure everything is going well. Highly recommended.
