Diner Reviews
  • "We went to Arturo's when we were staying at a hotel in the Galleria area. It was a wonderful night. The service from David was perfect, attentive but not overbearing. He has a very special personality and was very kind to our young teenage son. The manager and owner both stopped by our table. The food was great. We enjoyed it very much. Thank you!"

  • "Wife and I are both fanatics over Italian food. Arturo's food quality and preparation was excellent. Salad and soups were over the top in flavor and preparation. Service was great and attentive. Main dishes big selection and ours was excellent."

  • "Although this is not our first visit, we went with a birthday guest from out of town. We each ordered very different plates and there was a lot of sharing. The pork chop was perfectly seasoned and grilled. The Milanese Chicken was impressive. Even though the chicken is prepared thin it was NOT dry at all. Another surprise was, the breading did NOT fall off when we cut through it. The flavor and temperature of each dish was perfect. If you want to make a special night a memorable experience, Arturo's is a great choice."

  • "You'll pay a little more than most "neighborhood" Italian restaurants, but the food is very good and the service is above average. It would be a very impressive place for a business lunch or dinner."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "We saw the new menu, but couldn't resist our old favorite, the branzino fish. It was perfect as always and fun when they bring the whole fish out to your table. We did share one new menu item, a meat salad and it was very good. We much admire this restaurant."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "After a couple of years dining here, they have a new menu and I have to say; job well done! New items we had were smoked trout with scrambled eggs (really, really good) and beef tip risotto. Enjoyed both and coming back to try new dishes. Great place. Easy parking and easy acoustics."

  • "Arturo's is the place for authentic Italian cuisine. The food is excellent, the number of menu choices are just right, and the service is top notch. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is casual and clean. Great for a business lunch as well as a quiet romantic dinner, or just relaxing and enjoying some good food. Don't forget to try the Cannolis - best in town!"

  • "Although the food was good, the ambience and the service were lacking. In the semi-open room where we were seated (which appeared to be the main one), all the tables were around the perimeter of a central bar. Although not noisy, it was not what I had in mind with the Olympics playing on the large screen TV over the bar. It was strange to have reserved a table only to be seated in what at most restaurants would be considered the bar area where you sit when no tables are available. Waiter seemed to forget about us after placing our appetizer and drink order. We got our appetizers, but he completely forgot about our drinks and we waited a half hour or so before he came back to take our main order. We chose to go elsewhere for desert."

  • "I entertained clients from out of town and could not have been happier with our dining experience. Service was good but not in the way. Food was delicious and, for a packed house, conversation was easy. Great restaurant."

  • "Took my girlfriend to Arturo's for Valentines Day. Never ate here before so I was a little apprehensive about going. I liked the fact there was the option of ordering from the regular menu. Dinner was great, the service was excellent, and we will be back. Being an Italian from NYC I am picky with eating Italian food out. The prosciutto appetizer was great. My girlfriend had the veal saltimbocca which was great, I had the seafood with Pasta and was very satisfied. The topper for my girlfriend was the Tiramisu, it was delicious, the waiter said all the desserts are made fresh daily at the restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant!"

  • "We were treated rudely by the Hostess, waiter appeared to have difficulty with the energy it took to talk. I have gone here many times, have brought many couples, but for some reason it has really gone down hill."

  • "Arturo's was a great restaurant. It surpassed all of our expectations. My boyfriend and I went there for Valentines Day and the ambiance was elegant and romantic, perfectly done for the occasion. The food was rich and full of flavor, and cooked to be juicy and not dry. I would certainly recommend Arturo's for a special occasion event."

  • "Arturo's met my expectations for Valentines Day. The food was really good and the chef was flexible with substitutions. They have an eclectic if a tad too pricy wine list. The service was quite efficient and the waiter polite and knowledgeable about the dishes. The ambiance had a very nice charm to it, making it very suitable for couples and groups. Highly recommend it."

  • "First time on OpenTable, long time diner at Arturo's. Great sound design -you can carry on a conversation when all tables are full. Our favorite Italian food. Branzino rocks. Many notables dine here, and for a reason. A great restaurant."

  • "Arturo's always has fantastic food. The dining room is outstanding and the service superb. I have never had a bad meal there. If there is a slight downside its that its really expensive. If you are on an expense account, spend away. Others should reserve for a special occasion. Lunch for 3, no wine runs about $170 all in."

  • "Arturo's continues to be one of my favorite restaurants. However, "energetic" is not the correct description of Noise. My most recent experience was disappointing due to the noise. This restaurant does NOT lend itself to children. But there was a birthday party in the private room with several small children.. We had to constantly request the waiter to keep the door closed due to the noise. My opinion is that this is unacceptable in this type of restaurant and should not be allowed. If so, then ALL business diners should be placed at the front of the restaurant and the manager should monitor the noise and keep the door closed. Thank you."

  • "great service and the food was delicious. The pescatini (peach martini) was very good - memorable and fun! The brie appetizer was sumptuous. All three desserts we had were great - especially the chocolate sack - and best cannoli i've had in houston for sure."

  • "Our latest visit to Arturo's couldn't have been better. We hosted another couple from out of town, wanted an outstanding dinner, wanted an occasion where we could talk without yelling over the din: we got a home run on all scores. We have enjoyed this restaurant many times. With he exception of one occasion where a new waiter was involved, we have been completely satisfied. In our case it is nice to have a place that's total reliable. This is one of the few in Houston about which I can make that statement."

The service was great and the restaurant was not noicy at all. The greatest surprise was the great food. The bronzino was delicious, and the lobster pasta outstanding. The prize for all that very reasonable. We definately going back!"
