Consistently very goodWe go to Arturo's at least once a month. Consistently very good food and service. Gravy (or sauce depending on your point of view) has the flavors we like - it is not "touristed-down" as some Italian restaurants serve. We will return.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!We have eaten at Arturo's many times and selected them to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary on June 12th. I had requested a quiet booth and they gave us what was undeniably the best table in the house. Isn't it great when they actually honor your requests! As usual the food was excellent as was the service. Don't miss it if you are in the neighborhood.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian RestaurantMade a reservation for this restaurant. Aurturo's is my girlfriend's favorite restaurant. I had never been there before, but it was a great experience. The food was excellent. The staff all had smiles on their faces. Our waitress was attentive but not over bearing. While not the least expensive restaurant in town, I'd say the quality of the food and the overall experience is worth the little extra $.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for Italian dining.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMproved me right!!Our second visit to Arturo's proved my first reaction to be right!! Great food and excellent service. The calamari and the meatball appetizer was just the right size for 4 of us to share. A variety of dishes - lamb special, seafood di mare, pizza and pasta - pleased everyone...and the sea salt gelato was the best. In my reservation I had asked to be seated in the back room, but there was function going on when we arrived so I was asked if the side alcove would work - great response by management! Keep up the good work.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was all about us!Great evening. Food is amazing. Waiters are a class act. Our waiter, Garrett, was on top of everything. Helpful and attentive but not "hovering". There is no better combination than deliciously, piping hot foot and an attentive waiter. While you are there......it is all about you.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMYesAs usual, great food, great service, what more can you ask for?6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful veal Parmesan, meltWonderful veal Parmesan, melt in your mouth good, excellent arugula salad with fresh beets and goat cheese, special of the night lobster hash was very flavorful, but lobster tail a bit tough, could have been over cooked and needed a sauce.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Italian out in the burbsWe went to Arturo's for the first time this week looking for great food and an intimate setting in the burbs. We live in Natick but thought it was worth going out a bit futher west and give it a try. Not far off of Rt. 9 so if you miss the height of communting definately worth a trip. The food was excellent however it was very noisey. They did have a few large tables which looked to be corporate events. We will certainly try it again with hopes of it not being so loud. If it is we will move on to find a more intimate date night setting. Very hard to find with tables being do close together or one large room where the noise level is so high.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place for dinner!We always enjoy our dinners at Arturo's. Sometimes the meals don't come out exactly how you've ordered them, but they are fixed immediately. We definitely recommend reservations.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMPacking Them InThe menu offerings were quite good and varied. An extensive wine list complemented the dishes. Our server was well informed, pleasant, and efficient. All the good stuff, now the not so good.....the 70's era cafeteria style tables and chairs situated practically back to back in an auditorium like setting made for a restricted, noisy environment. Definitely not a venue for quiet nor romantic dining.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time DiningIt was our first time dining at Arturo's, and the food was delicious!! We sat in the lounge area, by choice, and had a nice table. Overall, we would definitely go back.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy ReturnWe hadn't been to Arturo's in several years. We were very please with the food and the service and will return often.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother WinnerThis is the second time we dined at Arturos and it was just as awesome as the first time. Great service, great atmosphere and great food. We'll definitely become regulars even though it is a bit far from where we live.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic FoodWe loved our lunch! The service was great and the food fantastic!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayGoing out on ;Mother's Day can be a frantic experience.
This mother's day went so smoothly, it was unreal!!
We had our reservation, so when we arrived and stated so, we were taken directly to our table.
The Halibut special, which we both ordered, was cooked to perfection.
We enjoyed the meal, our apps. and wine. We had a great time catching up without the grandkids, although we missed them dearly!!
When the desserts were so beautifully presented, we decided to pass. We promised ourselves that we would return to Arturo's another time for dessert only.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWould definately ReturnWe had a party of 10, 4 of which were kids 8 thru 14. All plates were cleaned. I really enjoyed the homemade paste dish I had with fresh and generous portions of shrimp, scallops and lobster bits. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the wine list and was able to find something I would like. Desserts were very good, but they did not have ice cream, just gelato. We look forward to going back and trying some other dishes.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMYou should goWe went the evening before Mother's Day. It was packed and for good reason. The food was excellent especially the pappardelle bolognese. I wish we lived closer so we could go more often.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good...Haven't been here in years but Arturo's didn't miss a beat. Food, service and setting continue to impress!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceYour waitress was professional and all other personel were friendly. I'll be back soon.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent special occasion dining!Our small group chose Arturo's for a special celebratory dinner, and we were delighted with every aspect of the meal. Each of us chose a different entree, two of which were specials. The entrees were expertly prepared and served with great culinary crafting. The service was superb--Our waiter was friendly and highly responsive without being obsequious. He was very helpful in my son's selection of a gluten-free beer and entree. The asparagus-and-leek bisque was divine, as were the crab cake appetizers. We have had the latter a number of times in the past, and they never disappoint. Arturo is our go-to place when we want a predictably excellent meal, and we're willing to drive a distance to do so!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost greatThe restaurant has a very nice ambience. The waiter was fairly attentive, and pleasant. Unfortunately, one of us ordered a seafood dish that did not live up to the description on the menu. The owner came over to ask how everything was, and he was very nice, and offered to replace the meal. The waiter forgot to tell us that they ran out of scallops, and the amount of lobster & crabmeat was non-existent. We thought we got the wrong meal! Since the staff was so nice, and the other meals delicious, we would go back again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Arturo's but was seatedLove Arturo's but was seated in the back room which I don't like as much. Food was great, service was great4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favoritesWe can always count on Arturo's for a great meal and dining experience. The service is excellent. Everyone working there is attentive and willing to make your dining experience pleasurable. The food is very good. We had the swordfish special and the bolognese. My sword was done perfectly and my husband really enjoyed the bolognese. I miss the Gnocchi that used to be on the menu. That would be my only complaint. Meals are well prepared and presented. They always try to change things up by having some interesting specials to choose from.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI usually go to Arturo's forI usually go to Arturo's for lunch as their luncheon specials are fantastic, dinner was the same. There were 5 clean plates in my party; everyone enjoyed their meals. The appetizers were excellent, the meals came out piping hot and were great, and there was a good selection of yummy desserts. No one in my party had the same thing and everyone was very satisfied.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Family MemoryWe finally were able to take our son and daughter-in-law to Arturo's. They live in Boston and are used to all the great Boston restaurants. They loved it....and now understand what we've been raving about. We usually don't get dessert because we are too full but they talked us into it. Their way of dining is to bring some of the meal home to "save room for dessert". We shared the most delicious peanut butter creation..... It was a fun way to end the meal!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful waitress.....We had a wonderful waitress..... It was very busy and she was a little harried..... Had to ask for water,ice a few times....food came hot......delicious....4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant surpriseWe were pleasantly surprised with our visit to Arturo's. Our server, Ingrid was outstanding - she was knowledgeable about the menu and attentive- we were never left waiting. The trio salad appetizer was delicious - beets with mandarin oranges, a white bean salad and a corn/red pepper/zucchini salad. The seafood in the fruitti de mare and the pasta napoli were large and succulent - very well cooked. I am guessing that the pappardelle was home made - it was cooked perfectly. The wine list is a tad on the pricey side - only one selection in each wine category was under $30/bottle. Decorations are a bit sparse but the funky light fixtures and excellent food more than make up for that! We will be back to see if it will be consistent.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are long-time Arturo'sWe are long-time Arturo's fans. Arturo's is our go-to place when we want a predictably good meal. We were not disappointed this past weekend. However, we're wondering if the chef has changed the recipe for the maple-pesto scallop appetizer, which we usually order as well as the crab cakes. The pesto came through nicely, but the maple was not apparent.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is an absoluteThis restaurant is an absolute gem. The food is outstanding. I had the Pasta Di Napoli and it is an incredibly delicious dish. The service is excellent. Try it out!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place was pretty emptyThe place was pretty empty on a Wednesday night at 8 o'clock. We were seated right away. There were crumbs on one seat in the booth and the host offered to seat us elsewhere. The waitress was attentive and drink orders and food came quickly. We held off ordering until after we'd gotten our salad to make sure things didn't pile up. We had pasta comfort food - eggplant parm and spaghetti and seafood in a cream sauce over broad noodles - and both were very creditable. The place was quiet enough to talk comfortably but not so quiet that we felt on public display.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was excellent.The food and service was excellent. The food came out fast and hot! I normally do not get dessert but I tried the wildberry sorbet which was out of this world. Highly recommend.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are never disappointedWe are never disappointed at Arturo's and we always leave smiling!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't be deterred by thisDon't be deterred by this restaurant's location in a strip mall -- the food is fabulous and the waitstaff is attentive and friendly. I wouldn't recommend this place if you're looking for a romantic meal or a quiet night out, but if you like and want great Italian food -- don't miss Arturo's. Our group of four shared the fried calamari appetizer which was fine but not outstanding. For dinner though each person had a different dish and absolutely raved about their meal. On our plates were: Frutti di Mare, Veal Piccata, Summer Risotto, and Pasta Avellino. Portions were good sized without being too much. We also appreciated the fact the waiter asked up front about food allergies -- something every restaurant should do but most don't. Mangia!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur recent visit to Arturo'sOur recent visit to Arturo's was based largely around their gluten-free menu. Everything was FANTASTIC! We all raved about the food and service. Their gluten-free pasta was the best we had ever tasted! The staff at Arturo's made such an important effort to take good care of us, even with our food allergies. WONDERFUL JOB! WILL GO AGAIN - and we don't even live in Boston. :)4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTotally loved it!fresh, quality food at reasonable prices. Sauces complement the flavor of the food without drowning it, and unlike many restaurants, they don't use a lot of salt to boost the flavor of the food. Even the cannoli tasted like the ricotta had just been put into the shell, instead of sitting in it for days. Portions are generous but not overwhelming.Prices are a little higher than average, but you get what you pay for. My only suggestion would be to add some beef to the menu - but there are plenty of other choices.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMArturo's: consistently veryArturo's: consistently very good food, service, and value. We will continue to go back there. Arturo's marinara sauce is significantly better than Quatro's sauce (the new restaurant in Hopkinton.)4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good food and goodAlways good food and good service. And apparently the news is getting out... this Friday night it was too loud to have a comfortable conversation in the main dining room. If it's your first try, consider a less busy night (either way though, don't miss this restaurant.)4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMnice experiencevery nice dining experience...very good food (my pasta sauce seemed a little too sweet for my taste but good flavor overall), kid friendly but with sophisticated atmosphere. Nice gluten free menu, excellent service. This restaurant is obviously run by people who care and are on top of the details. Surprisingly good quality restaurants in this area. There seem to be better restaurants here than on the outskirts of Boston where we came from. (from new arrivals to the area)4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good meal at a reasonableVery good meal at a reasonable price. Quick enough service for a normal lunch and to get back to work in a reasonable amount of time.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good, quality food. HaveVery good, quality food. Have been there several times and never had a bad meal. It's slightly on the more expensive side but fits it's "class" in that respect.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMi love Arturo's. Food isi love Arturo's. Food is great, and the quality of the service is outstanding. Great attention to detail. I come into the MetroWest 3 - 4 times a year from the California Bay Area and purposely seek out Arturo's for any social engagements because I know it will be consistently outstanding3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have never been disappointedWe have never been disappointed with a meal. Wait staff is very attentive. Restaurant is impeccably clean and food is outstanding.

Food never disappoints!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you Tim...Everything was great as always. Tim is an absolute gentleman and extremely thorough. My ONLY issue is that the host staff needs to be able to manage opentable better and take server requests as a priority.. This is the 3rd time we have made a request for Tim and the 3rd time for whatever the reason that they were about to seat us with someone else. Aside from that, absolute perfection. Veal marsala was delicate and delicious... Thanks3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the Area's Best...Excellent local option. They have a real chef here and it shows. Much better the last few years after the new owner took over.2/20/2013 12:00:00 AMARTURO'S IS TRUE ITALIAN....EVERYTHING WAS AS GREAT AS EVER.. MANDY TOOK CARE OF US FOR THE SECOND TIME AND SHE WAS WONDERFULLY PLEASANT, VERY EFFICIENT AND EVEN REMEMBERED OUR DRINKS HAVING ONLY WAITED ON US ONE TIME BEFORE. WE BROUGHT MY PARENTS TONIGHT FOR THE FIRST TIME AND THEY WERE VERY SATISFIED AND CERTAINLY WILL RETURN IN THE FUTURE. MY ONLY GRIPE IS THAT WE REQUESTED TIM IN OUR RESERVATION AND FOR WHATEVER THE REASON, THEY WERE UNABLE TO ACCOMODATE US - BUT EITHER WAY WE HAD A NICE TIME AS ALWAYS. FOR THE FIRST TIME WE ACTUALLY HAD ENOUGH ROOM FOR DESSERT AND THE SALTED CARAMEL CAKE WAS MMMMMMMMM.
