Arta has seriously raised its game over the last couple years.
The menu some years back was boring with an occasional better special. Today's menu has significantly changed, offeriny much more imaginative choices with unquestionably high quality.
The room and bar have been upgraded and are beautifully yet simply decorated
The staff are also an upgrade, quite professional and pleasant
The one excellent standard over the years remains the host, Romeo.
Prices are high for the area and I wish a list of specials with prices were presented instead of just a recitation, a pet peeve I have with many restaurants

sorry cannot recommend this restaurant. in the sticks of n.jersey. looks more like a Pocono log cabin venue then anything. confused as they to be a bar with a tv or fine dining atmosphere...cant be both.
not many varied choices on menu or even very special specials. bread to table was hot but not fresh and lack taste, they gave you a soup sample in a demitasse cup, it was so little I mean it barely covered the bottom of the cup, my wife said where is it? I had to tell here 3 times its in there.....I ordered a limoncello after dinner drink. Naturally I paid for it....only to find out with the check they bring limoncello to you as complimentary after the meal. you think the waitress would have said something when I ordered it.
for dining out we will stick with Lu Nelo's and Il Capricio's. Arta prices like both of them but cant compete for ambiance, service or food.

Was away for a few days and was surprised at how little there was to see in the area. The restaurant was wonderful and the highlight of the trip. Rather expensive or we might have gone a second night. Had a Fig Cosmopolitan for the first time and loved it. Formal, attentive service.

Food was good. Service was ok, the staff kept checking on our table every 5 minutes. The over abundance of checking in didn’t allow much alone time for my boyfriend and I. Also when I asked to cancel the salad the main waitress was very annoyed and gave me an attitude.

We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and the staff couldn't have been more lovely. They gushed over us, making it a most special meal. The food was wonderful as well. There was a couple at the next table from which the man was celebrating his birthday. I think he got "special" treatment as well. Definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

Something seems different now with this restaurant. I hope their high ratings are not going to their heads. Can't put my finger on it, but it seems the prices are higher and the quality of the experience and the food is down. Just did not seem it's usual self this time from a year ago. Food was very very good as usual my associates told me, however I did not enjoy the pasta special that I got, my fault. The calamari appetizer was chewy. The crepe dessert was soggy. I still think this restaurant needs to change location as the outside environment of "rural" Ringwood just does not embody the gourmet atmosphere inside. It would do great in Ridgewood where it would have to actually compete for customers ensuring that the food was first class. It just lost it's five star rating with me.

Had dinner here recently and has been a favorite restaurant of ours for many years. The food has always been excellent as well as the service. That being said, the last few years have seen many changes. The prices at have increased substantially, the Chicken Rolatini that use to cost $18 is now $30, and this is Chicken people.. They use to give you a salad with your meal, that has been taken away. They use to put out a complementary dish of cheeses and olives, that is gone. The bread would come out hot, now it's room temperature, the butter for the bread had a delicious flavored oil, now this is gone and regular butter put out. The service is still top notch, but, I feel like they are really trying to stick it to everyone. The food on the whole is still very good, but, with all the changes and the inflated prices I think we will be limiting any future visits. Sorry to see this fine restaurant make many bad decisions.

What a lovely experience we had at Arta. We were greeted warmly and seated immediately. We weren’t crazy about the table location (a rather busy path from the kitchen) so we asked to be moved. Absolutely no problem. A kind gentleman gave us a choice of tables without an issue. Our server was a delightful young woman who expertly navigated the four of us through cocktails, dinner choices and desserts. She was amusing, professional, and attentive without being intrusive. The restaurant ambience was elegantly comfortable. Our meals were brought out in a timely manner and tasted wonderful. I ordered the deboned bronzini prepared delicately with capers, fingerling potatoes & fresh sautéed mixed vegetables. It was superb. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his veal chop to the very last bite. Our friends remarked how delicious their seafood risotto was with colossal shrimp and perfectly prepared real scallops. Thank you Arta for the exquisite meals and lovely evening.

Service from beginning to end was exemplary. The salads were good. I ordered the rack of lamb. It was prepared beautifully, but there was so much fat on them that it was very offputting. The prices were on the high side. The portions were large. The pasta with seafood was excellent. It was a long drive for me and I think there are closer restaurants with food of equal quality.

First I want to say that I was surprised to find such a nice restaurant in Ringwood. Everything was outstanding. We started with the stuffed figs and then had the mozzarella tower for appetizers. One of the specials for the night was Dover Sole from Holland in a sauce that was prepared at the table. My husband at the Chilean Sea Bass in a sauce that he raved about. Highly recommend this restaurant. Be aware of the NY prices. My Dover Sole was $50.

Arta has elevated their food to the level of what I would call "Fine Dining". We have been going there for many years and thoroughly enjoyed every part of our dinner, from the salad course through dessert. It's a nice place to spend a special evening. Of course Romeo and his team are always welcoming and professional.

We drove 45 minutes to the area for Father's Day lunch. We chose this restaurant from an online description and were not disappointed in our choice. The service was attentive, the food was creative and delicious, and the place was lovely and had wonderful Italian music playing. We enjoyed specialty cocktails along with salads, fish, and lamb chop dishes. We loved them all. Even thought it's a drive for us, we'll be back ... just to have the experience once again.
