    My wife and I had been going to Arturo's 3-5 times a year but we realized over the last year we needed to lose weight. And we have. But over the last month nth we needed to eat some good Italian food. That meant Arturo's. We have an Italian restaurant five minutes from home but their sauce (aka gravy) has no taste. We drove to the town over from us and ate at Arturo's. As good as we remembered. We'll be back when we can given out quest to lose weight.

    We dine at Arturo's AT LEAST once a week and the experience is always EXCELLENT. Our party of four enjoyed four meals which were all terrific. The beef special, two swordfish special and a traditional Veal Marsala off the menu were great and the two desserts we sampled were excellent as well. While the menu offers over 100 choices, the specials are always outstanding and the beef is always cooked to perfection. Service is terrific, the owner, his managers, all of the wait staff and bartenders are friendly and add to the excellent dining experience.

    See my other reviews. I am very pleased with Arturo's all around. Fresh food. Fair prices. A bit noisy- try to get a booth if you can as the center tables are noisy. Or a table in the back? When you want parking with no hassle (unlike the so-called great Worcester restaurants), a decent drink, reasonably priced and fresh well prepared food, Arturo's is the ticket in the Shrewsbury, Westboro, Grafton and Worcester area!

    Use to be a regular diner at Aturo's til last November when we had a bad service experience . The GM was made aware and he did not seem to care. We decided to try again and felt we were not missing out on anything ! Very sad as we had many celebrations here over the years

    This was our first time to Arturo's. We were pleasantly surprised. it is much larger inside than it appears from the street. We had a reservation for 2 @ 6pm. We arrived on time and were seated promptly. The waitress was very nice exsplained all the specials and took our drink and appetizer order. The only issue all night was a bit of a wait for the drinks to arrive at the table. We had already received our appetizer and almost finished it before the drinks arrived. Slow bartender? I had one of the specials summer risotto with sea scallops it was excellent, My wife had chicken parmesan and pasta. It was also very good. It was a bit noisy. We will be back to try it again.

    We have dined once there before when a local liquor store hosted a wine-pairing dinner. We enjoyed it so much we decided to return. We were not disappointed. The bartenders are friendly and efficient, the cocktails are delicious and not overpriced, and the entrees and specials are fresh and imaginative. We truly enjoyed our evening and would highly recommend Arturo's to friends and family. We look forward to returning again soon - perhaps for my birthday in a few weeks!

    My wife and I dine at all kinds of restaurants. Arturo's will join our list of favorites. The Veal Parmesan was crisp and the gravy/sauce was perfect. My wife thought the Shrimp Scampi was well prepared and tasty. We shared a delicious desert of Limoncello and Mascarpone cake. In addition our server was professional and courteous.

    Food was excellent and service was very good. Prices reasonable as well! The butternut squash large tortellini was fabulous! Others had the bolognese and loved it! The experience did take longer than expected and noise level was high but we were no tin a rush. The tiramisu did not live up to the waitress's hype- it was ok- so she took it off our bill without us asking which was very nice. She mentioned that they "stand behind their tiramisu and it clearly was not up to our standards tonight!"

    This is one of my favorite restaurants. Food and service is always excellent. I had the eggplant parmesan. The breading was just the way I like it--not too thick and not greasy. The menu is extensive! We tried to come here a few months ago on a Friday night. The wait was over an hour. This time we were able to make a reservation the same day for dinner.

    Crab cakes were good, drinks were good. Service very good and attentive. Arturo's is a little pricey but is worth it. So many of the restaurants in Westboro, Grafton and Worcester are in the business to be in the business Arturo's adds that extra touch by hiring and training the staff to be friendly and courteous. Food is fresh and prepared well. I have nothing negative to say except the noise level is high and if you can get a booth do so as the tables in the center of the dining room are noisy and uncomfortable.

    From the new slippy slidey dinner plates to the less than stellar service, we were also disappointed in the food. The special, Striped bass, which I love, was overcooked with very tasteless rice and 3 sprigs of brocolini. I was also turned off by the smell of fish when it was delivered, which signaled to me that it wasn't fresh. My husband had the old standby, chicken parmesan, which was ok, but everything was just so ordinary and I just expect more from Arturo's. It used to be our special place to go out to eat. It was our wedding anniversary. No more.

    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.

    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.
