Went to Arte for the second
Went to Arte for the second time and it was everything I thought it was the first time! We had great service, good wine and most importantly great food. I took my daughter there this time before a show and we really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. Arte is my go to place in the East Village.

very good food/service, pricey
Our food was delicious, the service was great, but it is expesnive for what you get. this is in our neighborhood and we would make it a staple, but for the fact that. Portions were small and for pastas in the 20s, they shouldn't be.

Overpriced but pleasant
My wife and I have been going to Arte for a long time. Most of the time, the food is excellent. We are always treated well. The atmosphere is comparable to restaurants that we love in Italy. Except for the fact that prices are very high, we rarely have a complaint.

Veal scaloppine superb. Sauce flavor perfect. Antipasti very tasty. Wine selection and prices excellent. Service good at start of meal but noticeably slow when requesting check. We had to ask twice and even then it was not speedy. This aside, it is a winner and we will be back.

Cozy neighborhood Italian
Just off 5th Avenue, this place is a new addition to our list of regular places to eat. Husband's special pasta with sausage, broccoli and farfalle was light and summery. My green salad was nothing special but quite acceptable. My veal scalloping with a bit of cream and artichokes was excellent. Spouse's veal dish with mushrooms and cognac was a tasty rendition. We will be back!

I've eaten here quite a few times over the past ten years. I can honestly say that the quality of the food and the service remains superior. I've taken friends there and they continue to speak of as one of the best places they've ever been to.

Excellent as always
If you appreciate excellent food, ambience & service then you must experience Arte's. An absolute fine dinning experience you must witness in your lifetime. You will be a returning customer forever. Always consistent.

Nothing but praise
We showed up (10 people) a bit early - and they didn't make a big deal about it. We lingered, we stayed a lot longer that your typical dinner, and they were absolutely lovely about it, and -again- accommodating. Everyone was very happy with their selections. I would return in a heartbeat.

This should be a "diner's
This should be a "diner's choice award" restaurant. We had the most amazing dinner, from start to finish one of the nicest dining experiences I have ever had. Beautiful restaurant, great food, top notch service, fabulous atmosphere...three entrees, each one that person's favorite dish of that kind they ever had. No rush for us to leave. In all, the most pleasant and enjoyable restaurant I have been to in a long time. We will be back over and over and over again.

Attentive Service with Good Food
We were a group of 7. This was a celebration dinner, and the restaurant let us order appetizers and after eating them order main dishes. This pace was terrific for our evening and much in contrast to some of the rush you along places. The food was very good--the staff explained some of the dishes with components that might be less familiar (bresola, for example) to a casual diner. Appetizer portions were perfect--eggplant special was great as was bresola with arugula and parmesean slices. Caprese salad not so inspiring. Veal chop--excellent. Cooked perfectly and good flavor. Pollo Arte was in a delicious sauce with crunchy vegetable accompaniments making the dish great!!! Waiter was there just the right amount of time.

Although living in the neighborhood for years, I had never been to Arte for some reason! The waiter was lovely with silly stories, dramatic review of the specials and providing a candle in dessert to celebrate the birthdays. The food was good. I was expecting the food to be more 'over the top' - but it was definitely good. I would recommend! Enjoy!

Delicious Food, Excellent Service
I had lunch at Arte, last Friday and I loved the energy first walking in. There were groups of 3 or 4 at every table and it was a nice way to end the week. I had the Dover Sol which my waiter Sammy recommended, and it was divine. Just enough flavor and very light. Service was well-timed and friendly. I had a great time and will definitely come back for lunch and dinner in the future. Excellent food.

Arte is a gem
Arte is a remarkable restaurant and definately worth a visit. The subdued lighting and floral displays lend a romantic air to the restaurant. This is furthered by the fireplaces and the delightful food. My girlfriend raved over the octapus appetizer and her pappendrella bolagnese which i can attest was rich and flavorful. My split pea soup was perfect for a chilly fall evening and the duck ala orange was superb. The bar service was swift and the drinks were well made. I found the service in all areas to be highly professional. I highly recommend Arte and will definately be returning.

Have to give a lot of credit to whoever is in charge of running this restaurant because many of the little things they do makes a huge difference to picky eaters like me and my wife. Everyone who came to our table is sharply dressed, smiling, professional, and friendly. We were treated like royalty-everything was spectacular...food, service, AMBIANCE, truly a magnificent experience, cozy, romantic, and TWO FIREPLACES...WOAHHH. A very memorable experience, HIGHLY recommended for a special occasion or any day of the week, you will not be disappointed.

A special effort for the occasion
The staff made a special effort to make a birthday dinner a very special evening. They were a little slow to get us our menus and the wine list, but I think it was because they were waiting for our last two guests to arrive. They did, however, bring out some scrumptious bruschetta and bread for us to nosh on while we waited. This place has terrifically cozy ambience; we sat right by the fire in the dimly light bar area. The food was good and predictable; nothing out of the ordinary and very solid, traditional Italian.

A bit too dark--it is difficult
A bit too dark--it is difficult to see what you're eating but the food is tasty, if pricey.

Wonderful service and food
This is a fantastic neighborhood Italian restaurant (feels like it's family run). The service was warm and welcoming. Food was fresh and delicious. The space is nice with a fire place in the front on the dining room. Would recommend.
