Arturo's Uptown Italiano
Great ServiceReally enjoyed the restuarant; and can't say enough about the friendly staff.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe brought a visitor hereWe brought a visitor here for an intimate dinner with 5 other people. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was excellent, and the portions were just right (not the huge portions that seem to be the rule at many Italian restaurants). The eggplant parmesan appetizer NEVER fails to please, with lots of bread to sop up the sauce. Garlic bread is good, too, but i prefer the soft regular slices. The Mediterranean seabass was prepared (and filleted) perfectly, with delicious vegetables on the side. Key lime pie was so wonderful, we ordered some for a dinner party the next night!!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian at its bestArturo's consistently delivers a very high quality experience!,5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMYour attention, pleaseArturo's Uptown Italiano, in Uptown Park north of Houston's Galleria, presents itself well with pleasant surroundings and good food, but we wish our waiter had been slightly more attentive on our last visit for lunch. One of our party of four was very specific that no mushrooms should accompany her main course, she even had a back and forth discussion with our waiter about it, but when the dish came, the mushrooms were there. The food server - not our waiter - consulted the order slip on the tray and commented that the waiter apparently had not made the note on the original ticket. A replacement entree was brought in short order, but when we partake of a $120-plus lunch, we expect the food delivered to be as we like it.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSeafoodBest seafood in town.

It was my birthday and we were immediately welcomed and taken to our table and were told my daughter had sent proseco to our table! Everything was perfect from that moment. The baked Brie appetizer was wonderful and our waiter was helpful and accommodating. It reminded all of us of our trip to Italy! Loved it here and will return. Gratzi'5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmong the BestOutstanding dining experience. The Brie was very good. The seafood dishes we had, Fruti di Mare e Lobster Pescatore Bianco were, fresh and well-prepared. Canoli flown in from NY is the best I've ever had. This place was recommended by foodie friends and they were spot-on. Though a Saturday night, there were plenty of tables available, but with food this good, I don't understand why.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date spotMy husband and I had a lovely dinner date here.
