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.

Excellent food and service!
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!! :)
So loud that we could not even hear each other.
Issues with service and bill
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.
The food was exceptional. Juan was an amazing waiter and made our experience even better!
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.
We had an excellent meal outside. The waiters were a little stretched thin with inside and outside tables. The food and atmosphere was excellent.
Our dinner was fantastic!!! The waiter went above and beyond to make our night wonderful.
Great food. Attentive waitstaff. Delicious appetizers. Great wine selection
It was a good dinner but service was a little slow
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.
Artu is a gem in the north end. Swankier vibe than most and fabulous service.
Delicious food and tomato with atmosphere. Absolutely wonderful evening!!
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.
Loved our dinner at Artu food was fantastic and service was excellent!
Delicious never disappointed! We love this place!!
Amazing atmosphere and incredible food and service! Loved our whole experience!
Our meals were delicious. The portions aren’t huge but just the right amount. We’ve been here several times
Excellent place, wonderful food, and friendly staff!! Our favorite !
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.
Very good! The outdoor dining is right on the sidewalk so it was a little crowded and noisy, but the food was excellent.
Amazing food and service outside. Seating was right across from Mike’s and enjoyed the people watching while dining. Food was very good -highly recommend their homemade sangria. Service was terrific.
It was the perfect place to go for dinner after gathering family at Logan flying in from many places especially who have never been to the North End.
Food was delicious! Waiter was friendly and very efficient. As a local I highly recommend Artu to everyone.
We had a great evening. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Overall it was amazing but it took forever to get drinks and we were left “thirsty”.
Specials were delicious. We ate outside so ambiance & noise N/A.
Amazing meal and service. Top-notch food.
Great food, great service . . . You will not be disappointed.
Great place ... great service!!!!
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!
Artu is always been our go to spot. We celebrated a graduation and enjoyed being outside in the hub of the north end. Food is always solid decent and dependable. The wine menu is varied enough to please 4 picky people. overall just a great night
Our favorite restaurant in the North End.
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.
A wonderful dinner! The service was excellent as was the food. Great wine selections by the glass as well. We had an outside table on a beautiful evening and enjoyed the Hannover street vibe.
First visit to Artu. Excellent dinner and great service from our waiter Andrew.
We had a nice North End experience at Artu. It was lively and the food and service were very good. We highly recommend it!
