    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.

    Went to dinner at Arturo's for the first time with a friend. Needed a location between CT and Boston, and this seem to fit. We were both impressed. By far, this was the best bolognese I ever tasted. Will definitely return when I'm in that area again.

    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.

    The food was great. Our server was good as well. It was a little hectic as it was MotherDay but all in all it was a good choice. I would go back and I live an hour away. I was impressed with their sauce. It was very good. I had the Veal Parmesan and it was very tender. I would definitely recommend Arturo's.

    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.

    Arturos is my absolute favorite restaraunt. Every time I go my meal is above and beyond my expectations. The service is incredible. Tim was our waitor. We were out celebrating my mother's birthday and my grandmother was with us. She has a severe gluten allergy. Tim even brought over a flour less gluten free cake so my grandmother could have some.

    If you don't like your main, savory dishes sweetened then watch out! My wife had the butternut squash ravioli and both the filling and the sauce were sweetened extensively. If your pallet likes sweetened vegetables and pasta then go for it...otherwise beware! When we told the staff what we thought, to their credit they WERE helpful.

    We have become regulars at Arturo's. The food is always of the highest quality and the service is wonderful. I had the special (steak with breadcrumbs, proscuitto, provalone rolled inside, and slow-cooked in the house tomato sauce). It was one of the best meals I've ever had - anywhere - not just from Arturo's!

    For a special occasion, my family had a fabulous experience at Arturo's. Our waiter was attentive and gave us excellent service without being overbearing! The menu was extensive with many specials added. The lamb special was magnificent; the beef tenderloin cooked to perfection; and the veal parmesan was crispy and tasty. Salads and vegetables were composed of the freshest ingredients. Wine and beer choices were great. A chocolate dessert, shared by all, topped off a delicious dining experience, and we rolled out of Arturo's thoroughly satisfied!

    The food was good... but the spaghetti and meatballs were forgettable. With so many other choices on the menu, skip this and pick something else. There are a LOT of seafood options. The wine list was decent. Save room for dessert - there were a lot of delicious looking choices on the dessert tray.

    I ran a yelp search for italian restaurants in that Rte 9/495 area, for a different nearby italian restaurant. Arturo's caught my eye as a new place worth trying to meet someone on a second date. I'm so glad I went there. The ambience was relaxed, attractive, and noteworthy. Our waitress was gracious, helpful, and attentive with just the right amount of presence (and absence). The chicken marsala was tasty, fresh, and tender.
