"A vanishing breed between its kind, Arte Restaurant is one of those quiet, beautiful, best kept secrets with a comfortable, homey ambiance.The fireplaces, the outside garden and the romatic atmosphere combine smoothly with the Northern Italian cuisine.
Try the Ravioli Aurora experience, sip the fantastic wines conveyed by charismatic staffers because in Arte our patrons are part of the family."

Restaurant was very busy although it did not appear to be understaffed. Took a peculiar amount of time for our cleared table to be reset and water offered. Our server was very good, although there were items on the menu that he described wine, entrée and dessert), then had to come back to us to say they were unavailable (we had a 7:30 reservation). Food was ok. My ravioli was more than al dente, a bit rubbery in fact and the spaghetti one of our party ordered did not have enough sauce. Was surprised to see a 4% service charge for using a credit card on the bill and that we were not informed about this extra fee when we made the reservation via Open Table or when I spoke directly to the restaurant to confirm. We would have brought the cash. Based on reviews I read, I expected more. Perhaps it was an off night and I always like to give what appears to be good establishments another try before I rule them out.

Arte is a wonderful neighborhood fixture. Their veal chop is outstanding, pasta great, fish always extremely tasty. A very comforting place to eat.

One of the few restaurants that actually gets better (as if it needed to) gets better with each visit.
Worth going back over and over

We celebrated my husband’s 58th birthday. He’s very fond of Arté. The food is always great and the staff were super wonderful.

The music was largely a very eclectic selection of dance tracks from the 80’s and 90’s. Very unusual for the setting but really wonderful as the majority of us were old enough to have been out in the clubs when those songs were new. The volume was perfect so as to prevent the atmosphere from feeling like a club with fantastic wine and delicious pasta primavera.

My only concern is that no one was asking for proof of vaccination. Otherwise thank you for a lovely evening!

Sincerely,

Steve W.

I made a reservation, confirmed it and then confirmed it again when they called me to confirm. Then, while we were at the show, they called to say they couldn’t honor our reservation. Phone was off, of course, so we didn’t find out until we got out. We had to scramble to find s place to take us that late on a Friday. I’ll never go there again.

Had a nice meal there visiting our daughter at NYU. Very good food. Veal, penne ala vodka, buratta etc. Service started strong but dropped off after a couple of big parties came in. It’s a nice, old school Italian place. Decor is dated but the food is very good.

Always a very good dining experience at Arte. Loved the evening special--spaghetti with Burrata as a new addition. Violet was great in customer service and attention. A great local restaurant to enjoy a quiet dinner.
