Arturo's is a a true gem. The best of the best food in Houston. The fish is always the freshest. The ceviche is amazing as is the burrata appetizer.
The staff is friendly, welcoming and always happy to greet their diners.
This is our favorite spot for so many reasons!

The food was cooked to the very perfection. I got the Rigatoni with sugar rose sauce, my friend got the fettuccine and shrimp and both of them were outstanding, the real taste of fresh food! The empanadas for appetizer are a must, don't skip it or you will regret it. For desert we got the creme brulee, delicate and tasty. The service was amazing, Diego rocks, he is the best! He gave us the perfect recommendations and was very kind and prompt. The chef Arturo was there and came to the table to make sure everything was okay, very friendly and attentive. Thanks for the great experience. Highly recommended!

The seafood in this place was quite delicious.
We started with the little neck clams steamed with white wine, garlic, lemon, red pepper and it brought me back to some of my fondest memories when I lived in NYC.
We followed that up with their mussels cooked with jalapeño and tomatillo peppers also with red pepper flakes and white wine and some cilantro. Spectacular flavor. We them met the chef owner Arturo and cooked up a ahi tuna steak w soy ginger flavors .....as they say forgetaboutit!!!
Definitely a must stop on the Houston stay overs.

It was my wife’s birthday. There were 8 of us. Mr. Boada’s team took such good care of us. Very attentive service. And the food was... spectacular! They even sliced the cake for us. We asked that the extra slices be passed around to the others in the restaurant. Great experience! Our third time here.

We love this restaurant. The food is always excellent. While the menu has remained the same over the last year or so, they always have specials (which, by the way, are very fresh). The mussels are great (no matter which sauce you use) as are the steaks/veal chops. Always order the garlic bread. To die for.

Arturo's Boada, near Voss and San Felipe, is a small restaurant that is nearly invisible in a small strip center that would not cause you to seek it out for dinner - but go! This is a classy, neighborhood restaurant - ideal for a relaxing dinner with people you want to spend time with. We go out to dinner at restaurants all over Houston, of all types, but at the end of the day, when we want consistently great food in a dressy-casual atmosphere, Arturo's is our choice. The gaspacho is great, the snapper is wonderful, and the dessert - particularly the homemade ice cream - is terrific. And the waiters are, too. Bravo.

Arturo Boada has been one of my favorite restaurants since it opened. The mix of Spanish and Italian cuisine is absolutely astounding. The homemade buratta cheese is an absolute must. All the waiters are authentic, professional, and entertaining. They love to talk with their customers and ensure you’re having the best possible meal. It’s pretty expensive but it’s worth every penny and then some. I never leave dissatisfied.

Dinner was outstanding. We were lucky to get a taste of Chef Boada’s handmade Cannelloni - superb. Enough for a main, but we split it. I had the tuna - great. My sister had the mussels. Wine list was extensive and last but not least their take on creme brûlée was unique. I won’t spoil the presentation. Will return again.
