    Our meal was messed up, but they corrected it quickly and courtiously and also a little something special to end the night. Mistakes happen, its how you react to them that defines you. Great job.

    Food was very good. Nice big wine list and a few good beers on tap. Great service. Check showed up with dessert so I didn't have to wait and ask. Only problem was it was a little echoey loud. They could use some noise dampening on the walls or ceiling.

  • Back Room Too Crowded and Loud
    DebbieVIP
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    In an effort to accommodate more customers, Arturo's reconfigured it's back room to add more tables. People were practically sitting on each other's laps. The food was excellent; hiwever, with three large parties of 8-10 young adults, all of whom seemed to be using their 'outside voices,' dinner was less than enjoyable. Ask for a booth up front.

    This was my 4th visit to this restaurant and first time on a Tuesday. The service was excellent from the time I walked in. The food was very good - this time I tried the Margharita Pizza and I really enjoyed it - soft crust, very saucy (which was delicious) with enough leftover for lunch the next day. The Super Tuscan wine was also very good. There were two very large groups eating that night so the place was lively. Reservations are strongly suggested - it's always been crowded every time I've gone (a Tuesday night, a Wednesday night, a Thursday night, and a Saturday night).

    We've eaten here many times and find the food choices excellent. The Gluten free menu is wonderful and you can find pretty much anything if you have this allergy. The wait staff are very well trained and more than accommodating. Overall, the dining was a great experience. I recommend this gem of a restaurant to all, especially if you have allergies.

    The food and service was outstanding and the restaurant was beautifully updated on the interior. It looked much more expensive inside than it does from the exterior. I had lobster ravioli and it was delicious. We split a mista salad and it was also delicious, healthy, and very fresh. The only part that wasn't a 5-star was the Pomegranate Margarita and the first table that they placed us at. It looked better than it tasted - too sweet and artificial. Next time I'll get wine! Overall, I would highly recommend.

    I made reservations and noted the special occasion (birthday). When I gave my name to the hostess, she immediately wished my wife a happy birthday. Our waiter was helpful and friendly and also acknowledged her birthday. The food was excellent and courses paced perfectly. Prices are reasonable but the food and service was that of an even more expensive restaurant. We will be back, so many other dishes we want to try!

    A friend had been to this restaurant many times for lunch so we thought we would try it for dinner. I would definitely make a reservation as there were many people waiting for a table and yet we got seated immediately. They open up a back room when they are really busy which is where we sat. The noise level was almost unbearable. It was very hard to even hear the waiter describe the specials. We each had something different and all of the dishes were very fantastic. Our waiter was very knowledged about the wine list as well as the menu. I would highly recommend this restaurant but maybe not on a Friday or Saturday evening.

    I used to go to Arturo's for lunch when I worked in Southborough and loved it. Haven't been in years, but decided to have my brother's 50th birthday dinner here. Met at the bar for a drink before dinner and could see myself hanging there again in the future. At dinner Tim treated us great! He surprised us all with a champagne toast and then had tiramisu with a candle for dessert. So thoughtful and attentive. Dinner was delicious. I had the veal saltimbocca and had a bite of my brother's squash ravioli, also delicious! Really enjoyed having an event here and looking forward to adding Arturo's into our night out rotation! Thanks much Tim and all at Arturo's.

    I have been to this restaurant many times and maybe they had a bad night this time as it was pretty crowded. I usually have a Chicken Parm dish and it was not at all prepared as many times as before. The filet was very thick and not thin and it was not crusty more like a piece of baked chicken with cheese on it. I spoke to one of the managers who listened but did not do anything about it- not can I replace it. So little disappointed in Arturo's this visit and think they need to assess the consistency of the kitchen and also listening to the customer.

    We dined there on a Friday night. The server was prompt in greeting us, but the food came out too quickly, felt we were being rushed. He also forgot our bread service, and our drink refills were sitting at the bar for some time before he remembered to bring them, and by then the beers weren't cold. Overall the food is quite good, so we will give it another try.

    Even though we had reservations, we were seated in the back room where the noise level is even higher than in the main dining room. We were told by the manager that if we wnated a booth (which are quieter), it had to be requested at the time the reservation was booked. The food was very good but the service was slow. This was not our favorite visit to this restaurant.

    I had a dinner meeting over lunch at Arturo's . I arrived before my meeting guests, the staff placed me at a very good spot for the meeting as well as allowed me to spread out. There was wifi and great service which enabled a smooth meeting. I really appreciated their staff's ability to read the tone of the conversation and leave us to talk when we needed to. The food was delicious. I had the cobb salad with chicken. There was a single mistake in my order when my salad came with the dressing applied rather than on the side. But it wasn't too heavy and I decided to eat it anyway.

    5 days in advance, we made a reservation for 6 people at 7:30 on a recent Saturday. We arrived on time. I checked in with a man at the front who said our table was nearly ready and he would get back to us shortly. 30 minutes later, I followed up, this time with a woman who said she didn't even know we were waiting. Within 5 minutes we were seated - no explanation. We were seated in a back room with a birthday party at an adjacent table (party of 15 or so?). The party was loud and distracting. If you're looking for a cozy dinner, or even one where all the members of your party can hear each other - and the server - you may want to look elsewhere. A common complaint in reviews is the noise level. I think management likes it that way.

    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!
