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.

Our second time here and we enjoyed it but not as much as the first time. For some reason, our meal was rushed even though it was not very crowded. One additional caveat...all the entrees were overly seasoned.

Wonderful service, great drinks and outstanding food. Delicious oysters for appetizer, we had the food special linguini with king crab legs, filet on the bone and artic char which were all fabulous. Dessert was bananas and strawberry foster which was devine. The attention and recommendations from Sasha were as usual excellent which made the night even more special since we were celebrating two birthdays.

Here for Mother's day. It's been a few years since we came here. Our last visit came with us accepting the seafood "sampler" offered by our waiter, price not mentioned at the time. Bill came and it was $180! Today, took a long time for the food to come. Waitress/ hostess sneared at us when we refused any of her appetizers. If you're stuck by Greenwood lake this is a place to get some grub. Otherwise, there are alot of great Manhattan restaurants that will serve you great Italian food for $40+/entree.

The menu posted on Open Table is not representative of the current menu. The entree costs were twice as much as what was shown. The meal was excellent, but had we seen the actual costs, we may not have chosen this restaurant.
Dinner for 2 with one cocktail, one salad, two entrees and two coffees was $160.00. More than we expected.

The food was very good. The service need not so much. Our appetizers came out before our drinks. The waiter took awhile to check on us. Plus we had to ask someone else about our drinks. I ordered a piece of chocolate cake. It was very dry and seemed to be going stale. Overall not bad but wasn't overly happy with the service.
It's very clean and everyone was very nice but service needs some work.
