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.

Artu Ratings and Reviews
We were seated right away ...only to be seated at the back of the rest. The waiter took forever to get to our table.. He was very inattentive ...it took 15 min to place order.... when food arrive one of our dishes was cold ... chicken parm informed our waiter he said oooo let me take it back and have them warm it for you ... it came back piping hot floating in a sea of red sauce. When we expressed concern about the plating our server he offered to bring back a plate to drain some of the sauce
CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT ...Finally when we decided just to leave ..... i had to find to go and find our server to get our bill only to discover that he and all of the other male servers were near the bar watching a hockey game.....on the bill they offered no discount or reduction to the bill after we expressed our concerns ... he came back with one canoli as an apology from the chef
The food was excellent and our waiter was excellent. The part that spoiled an otherwise good evening was the support service. We were made to keep our dirty silverware from our appetizer course, I was handed a dirty knife with entre (which was quickly replaced), and we were repeatedly asked if we were done with our dnnee dishes, when we clearly were not. It was toward the end of.the evening, so it was not because they were trying to flip the table.
one of my fav spots in the North End. The staff makes it very easy and are very nice. Food is the Tops! Bruschetta of white bean and broc rab and another with cheese and prosciutto were excellent way to start. Cocktails were perfect. Dinner were pasta dishes. Great place
Four of us had dinner over the weekend. Mussels were fantastic, as was the pasta bolognese. Service was good, but after meals were delivered the waitress said she’d be right back with grated cheese- never appeared again. Food is excellent and we’ll be back!
I made a reservation for 6, arrived early and waited at the busy bar which the hostess knew. I tried to check in with her but it was so busy I could not find her and then when I went up to the desk she said our table had been ready early but she couldn't find me... We were seated next to a very loud table and the lighting was way to dark.
Very Italian without being formulaic. A bit noisy and hard to have a conversation but not any worse than anywhere else. Service was excellent from the front door to the servers. We arrived early for our reservation and we were accommodated. Definitely would go back.
The scallop appetizer plate was delicious. We almost ordered a second plate for the main meal. The chicken parmesan plate was large portion and tasty. The chicken marsala was ok. I've had tastier sauce. The spicy pork plate was good as expected. The service at Artu was excellent, very attentive and accommodating. We had a reservation, but due to unexpected delays with the MBTA, we were going to be late. We called Artu and let them know we would be about 25 minutes late. They said they would hold our table. We actually ended up being 50 minutes late, but Artu still had a table ready for us immediately. We were very happily surprised that they held our table that long. Great restaurant overall.
Service was very friendly, and excellent. Food was good, but I had the Shrimp scampi linguini, and I thought it would have had more flavor. The shrimp was good, but the pasta was pretty bland. My dad had the chicken marsala, and LOVED it. We were visiting my daughter for Parent's Weekend. I would probably go back.
There are 130 small Italian restaurants in Bostons north end. Amazing but true. This one is excellent.
Menu has the standby pastas but also innovative fish and meat dishes. The pasta sauces are very flavorful without being too spicy. Prices are mostly moderate. Excellent wine list with good choices in less expensive range. Noisy snd lively but not too loud. Popular with locals. We were tourists and hope to return.
Food was delicious and service was excellent. I was impressed because Artu is such a busy place, but we had an attentive waitress and excellent service, and we were not lost in the crowd. We all enjoyed the food, and there were so many great choices. Also, I made reservations on-line, then changed the time and number in our group, twice. Artu was very nice about the changes, and I really liked that they actually called me to confirm our reservations. Finally, the atmosphere was lively & enthusiastic. I recommend Artu & would definitely eat here again.
Artu's was the perfect spot for our business meal in the North End of Boston. I am gluten free and was extremely satisfied with a tasty meal and everyone else enjoyed their meals as well. Good food, great atmosphere, and I ate more than I probably should have (Basically ordered 2 dishes and a side of sausage), but it was well worth it!!
