A word from Arturo's Ristorante
One of the prettiest and long-lived restaurants in Boca Raton, Arturo's (featuring Northern Italian fare) is owned and run by consummate restaurateurs Vincenzo and Rosaria Gismondi. Their tuxedo-clad staff are attentive and friendly, and do their best to inform you about, and not just serve, the excellent food.
Arturo's has a number of distinctive and attractive features. The antipasti trolley is filled with a mammoth selection of traditional Italian dishes (don't picture the usual salads - we have enjoyed crab dishes, pastas, stone crabs, grilled eggplant, layered pastries stuffed with veggies and cheeses, smoked salmon, etc). It is marvelous, and, at a very reasonable cost, a terrific way to dine. Due to market fluctuations, some dishes may be priced separately, so be sure to ask if anything on the trolley is not included in the one price given. Entrees are also wonderful. The Dover sole is something to behold, the meats are tender and perfectly prepared in many ways.

    FOOD AND SERVICE VERY GOOD. ONLY NEGATIVE IS IT'S PRICEY !! $27 for Chicken Parm no pasta is expensive. It was a Sunday night and restaurant was quiet which made for nice conversation and no rushing to turn over table. Even the deserts offered are numerous and looked very good. If prices were a bit more moderate they would be busy busy all the time. As is, it's for the occasional visit. I'd love to frequent this place more often !!

    This was a great restaurant to take my father-in-law for a birthday dinner. The service was wonderful, and it's a real old-world Italian restaurant. The wait staff is in tuxes, and there are so many around who can help at any time. The waiters gladly cook some of the food at your table. The musician sang, "Happy Birthday", and our table was full of festive confetti. Overall, we were all impressed with the menu and service, and we would return to celebrate another special occasion.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/6/2014
    Eating at Arturo's is truley a dining experience. Trying to impress my date, I ordered everything that was made table side. How many Caesar Salads are made table side? It was really unbelievable. From Caesar Salad to the Spaghetti Gismondi and the Filet Mignon Arturo, all of which were made table side by the owner himself due to such a busy night. Just when my date thought the night was over, I ordered Zabaglione which is a popular Italian dessert ALSO made table side and then finished the night off with a very beautiful dance. There is absolutely no other resturants where you can have such a dining experience. I will start becoming a regular at Arturo's Resturant and tell all my friends and family about it.

    Arturo's Restaurant is one of the finest establishments I have ever been to. I came here with my parents and had such an amazing time. My father was so impressed by the wine list. The food was excellent as well as the service and ambiance. Table-side cooking is a really nice touch that you rarely find in other restaurants today. The live music was also a great touch. Some couples even got up to dance. This restaurant is just really one of a kind.

    We have not eaten at Arturo's in many years and decided to try it again. We found the bartenders to be rude and unaccomadatimg, Our waiter never offered us the appetizer cart,as I remember from years back. The dinner portion were very smalland not very good.. There are many Italian restaurants in the Boca area, I would dine at them before Arturo's.

    Our family chose to eat at Arturo's for the first time recently. We had tickets to the WIck Theatre and the restaurant was nearby. Our party of 6 had two birthdays - an 11 year old and a 48 year old. We were greeted warmly and shown to a table with birthday confetti. Many of the servers came by and wished us well. The food was spectacular - we had the cannalloni, the steak arturo, the fish special and the cesear salad prepared tableside. But the very best thing about our experience was the service. Truly exceptional- professional and friendly.

    We were in South Florida for two weeks and ate at many different restaurants but this was by far the best food we had during our trip. My husband had the osso bucco and pasta fagioli and said they were the best he ever had. My son had the steak and I had the chicken marsala both of which were very good. We will definitely eat at this restaurant again.

    An unsavoury experience..seated 20 minutes after our reservation, waited 20m mins for a menu, wine served before menus given, and ages before first course, waited over 1 hour for main course, many excuses from very snobby management, finally recvd 2 underdone salmons and 3 pastas, 1 branzino of poor quality food. Restaurant had run out of smoked salmon for g-d sake!! Large party seated nearby very noisy and disruptive especially when they left, management do nothing. Waiter kept saying not his fault whilst owner stood by and said nothing. Offered free coffees which we refused as adding insult to injury. Terrible restauant, offhand, unhelpful and coudn't care less attitude from management. Overall experience cost them 10 future customers.

    Loved Arturo's old world charm. When seated I noticed a Happy Birthday sign. When I mentioned it was my Birthday day, the staff decorated our table with confetti . The staff were extremely helpfull, and pleasant. Our food was outstanding.... baked clams, antipasto, cannelloni(I wanted half bechamel & red sauce the chef served it in two plates so I could try each separately), to seafood pasta all were delicious. The dessert cart was wonderful, we chose berries which were large and sweet. The piano player played Happy Birthday while the staff sang. We enjoyed our relaxing dining experience, and will return very soon.

    Could not handle a full house. Our table of 6 waited 1 1/2 hr. for our entrées. The food came out cold. My salmon was not cooked as ordered. Second time salmon was undercooked - raw. Sent back. Management came to table and inquired. Situation explained and hostess responded rudely that first salmon was as I ordered. They were unaccommodating, and charged for the salmon. We insisted that they correct the bill. Was very unpleasant experience. We were all return patrons. But, no more!!!

    We had a 5:30 reservation and appetizers came at 5:50 but then dinner didn't arrive until 7:15 which was well after the table next to us which sat at 6:00 and was done and left before we received our dinner. They offered dessert for being late but we don't eat dessert so it was no compensation for us and didn't accept dessert. No other offer was made to make us happy so I won't be back to Arturos

    First time here and what a pleasant surprise! The food was outstanding. For a Tuesday night in Season, it was quiet (which is the way I prefer it). We enjoyed the service as well as the pace of the meal. The waiters were respectful for our privacy and conversation and everything seemed to work just right. After a delicious bottle of wine, we started our meal with a salad, Spaghetti Puttanesca (a winner!) and then the Snapper which was spectacular. Expresso and an Apple Tart. For me, not sure it could have been better unless I was in Italy.

    My husband and I dined at Arturo's this past weekend and it was an amazing experience. The staff and family that owns the restaurant are so friendly and welcoming. The food is fantastic and very authentic. This is a great place for a romantic dinner or even a special occasion. Looking at the other reviews that diners wrote, I can't believe someone would complain about waiting 15 minutes for a table on a Saturday night. They are obviously inexperienced diners. Arturo's is not the type of restaurant where you want to rush your meal. It is the complete dining experience ( they even have live music every night). We absolutely loved it and will be back next time we are in town.

    We were greeted with a "buona sera". Being from Rome, that made me feel like I was home again. Great table in the "patio" room. The staff was lovely. The restaurant was busy but we were made to feel like VIPs. The owner helped us chose an Italian Chardonnay (Dreams by Silvio Jermann)that we really enjoyed.Two of us had the appetizer cart and were delighted. The two others enjoyed homemade capelli with shrimp and lobster sauce. Delicious! My entree' "Nocetti di Vitello" with Cabernet sauce and polenta. WONDERFUL. Our friends shared the Branzino. Fresh and baked perfectly. My date chose Ossobuco with risotto. We loved Tiramisu, and the Italian cheesecake. The staff, live music and food were outstanding.So authentic We will be back! Grazie!

    Waited 15 minutes for our table even though we had a 7 o clock reservation. There was a party going on in another area which definitely effected the service....bread was finally brought out only after we asked about it. It took at least 30-40 minutes from the time we finished appetizers until we received our entrees'. Our waiter didn't come by the table to ask if everything was okay with our dinner. Overall, we were all disappointed and will not be returning.

    Besides being left unattended for quite a time before ordering. The wait staff seemed to be totally distracted we were surrounded by carts left in the areas around the tables. Our waiter was he called it "caught in a moment of chaos". This with a half empty restaurant. When I complained (one of our appetizers was never delivered" the management didn't even have the courtesy to come to the table and find out what was going on. He sent a member of the wait staff to give us a complimentary dessert. Totally Unacceptable.BI

    My wife and I go to Arturo's regularly and love the food and service. On our latest visit we noticed an across the board price increase on all or most items. We can live with this. However the formerly included salad is now ala carte. This is a big change which saves the owners very little but is very irritating. We will be going to Arturo's less often in the future!
