    Arturo's Restaurant is a hidden gem. For quality service, atmosphere, wine and really delicious food this is the restaurant you want to go to. They always offer specials that kick it up a notch for what is in season. I have always had a really lovely time dining here.

    We were looking for a restaurant we hadn't tried and decided on Arturos as I had heard thru the grapevine that it was good. Wer're so glad we did! The atmosphere was great, the food was great and the service was great. I would definately reccommend and my husband said it was his new favorite restaurant :)

    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.

  • Disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 10/3/2014
    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!

    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 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.
