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.
Great service and food just a little loud
Food was fabulous and service was outstanding
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
Love the food. Beautiful restaurant. Perfect service.
Favorite neighborhood restaurant! Wonderful food, service and ambiance.
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!
Planning to return in the near future.
Enjoyed the food and the fireplace.
Quiet neighborhood Italian restaurant on University Place that always has great food and very good customer service! Feel good restaurant at its best!
SO wonderful to see Martino and the Lads again. Marvelous meal out under the stars. Superb! So happy they could take a late evening reservation for us.
Excellent food and service. Its a bit pricey but worth it. Highly recommend for special dinners.
One of my favorites. Always great food and service.
We always have a great time and outstanding meal at Arte. The service is fantastic.
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.
The food is fresh and delicious and the service is outstanding. It’s always great to enjoy an evening at Arte.
Reservation wasn’t checked
. No notice given to the Birthday.
I asked three times if the espresso was decaf and was assured it was.
BUT it wasn’t ,
My party of three did didn’t sleep that night.
Had their amazing zabaglion with strawberries for dessert for the first time 18 months. Still fantastic!
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.
We haven't been here in quite awhile and are glad that it is still here. It's as good as ever and we can't wait to come back
Always love Arte!
Arte is always a good call for delicious food in welcoming neighborhood atmosphere.
I've been going to Arte for years, but last night the food and service was even more exceptional! The branzino was delicious!! Service was terrific!!
Really like this place and it’s on the list of regular places to go
The service and food were fantastic. Staff went the extra mile to make the birthday special.
Always a neighborhood favorite.
Great dinner as usual- branzino delicious and tender, gnocchi cooked perfectly. Ricotta cheesecake nice way to end the meal. A+
Very good food
Nice neighborhood dining spot.. very good food ( but some items weren’t available the night we were there). Normally quiet but a noisy table was near us that evening..
Favorite place. Best ambience. Wonderful wait staff. Always great to go with friends. You can actually have a conversation with your dinner companions.
My go to restaurant any night. Always great food. The best service. Beautiful restaurant.

Welcom back. We ( Jean and Victor) will be dining at Arte's on a regular basis. The value is terrific and the service great.
It was really bad. Bad food and service
Staff was extremely friendly the entire time and even the owner came out a few times to send his gratitude. Food was also incredible!
