Italian
Artu was founded on the most basic Italian technique, great ingredients, simply prepared, that is what Artu is all about.

In February of 1992 Artu opened its doors to the world, starting with outstanding sandwiches and mouth watering roasted meats, we continued to evolve and grow. Since then we have steadily added to our repertoire. From those sandwiches and roasted meats, we have produced old-world comfort food dishes to current interpretations of those classics that still make the most discerning eater reminisce of their childhood.

We went for our 29th anniversary. Appetizers and entrees were delicious. Wait staff was excellent. Extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and wines and made changes and suggestions for gluten free. Would definitely come again!

Always a good meal at Artu! Friendly service! Special requests don’t throw them! A lovely venting dining outside in Hanover St - tables set up well with plants and bistro umbrellas so you don’t feel like you’re on Hanover St. We’ll be back!! :)

Absolutely wonderful experience.

The food was quite good and ambience was very pleasant, but what made this experience truly special was our server. He gave us great wine recommendations, was cheerful the whole evening, and, when one of our party asked for an iced cappuccino (which was not on the menu), he basically said "we'll do our best", before bringing out exactly what this friend asked for.

We had a great time, and I would definitely go back here.

Food was ok but nothing special for an Italian place in Little Italy. Ambience was quite dark, not so much my style.
Service was good.
The bar area was quite energetic, but we were on the dining area.

This is fun restaurant to go too, reasonably price and great food. The menu is relatively short, lacks a lot of seafood. service was not great, but the restaurant was very busy. They do not have enough bathrooms.

I was there with my friends; we waited for approx. 1 hour for our dinner and 30min for our first drinks. As I saw, they have only two waiters, these people were trying to do their best, but you can not serve +15 table with two waiters. The food was okay.

Food was good. But server didn’t appear to want to serve us. He didn’t look at us when speaking. He looked over our heads or all around. He also Did not check on drinks. He really looked and acted like he did t want to speak to us. Poor service definitely would prevent me from returning. It is an awful feeling when your server acts better than yiu.

I brought my family of 5; three of which are teenagers. The variety of Italian options was wide. We all ordered different meals but everyone loved everything. The waiter recommended a white wine that I loved! Surprisingly the prices aren’t bad. All of our entrees were right at $22 each. Overall, great meal, highly recommend.

We sat outside on a beautiful night. Waiter was friendly, menu limited, lots of people about which was nice. The downside of this place was the food was plain, ok, but not worth the cost. It was very simple "Italian food", nothing worth noting. The North End is a hot location so many restaurants can get by with 'ok' food. You can find better.

Highly recommend roasted beets with pistachios and blue cheese, and the lobster bruschetta. The halibut and the beef short rib ravioli was perfect. For desert we had the cannolis and lemon sorbet cleverly served inside a lemon. The bill was lower than expected!

The food was fantastic. Our server was courteous, the hostess went above and beyond. We had 2 kids with us and they refused to allow a pizza to come to our table. Apparently only at the bar or take out. I was even willing to buy at bar and bring it to the table. The server claimed the owner doesn't allow it. Oh well I guess. Just disappointing they aren't kid friendly.
