This neighborhood eatery serves up an eclectic blend of Italian, Spanish and Latin cuisine not to be missed. Try unique tapas like the camarones henesy en hamaca, mussels tomatillo, ceviche and many more. The wood burning-oven puts out authentic thin crust pizzas, with favorites such as the carnitas pizza. We offer a flavorful selection of fresh seafood and steaks. Our home made desserts are a must, from wood oven baked apple pastry to Arturo’s famous crème brulee. The hand picked wine list offers a variety of boutique and exclusive wineries. We are very happy to accommodate any of your special requests.

We enjoyed a wonderful and delicious dinner. Menu is great and they are very willing to accommodate an off the menu item. Also a very nice selection of wines.
Highly recommended to those who like very good Italian food.

This restaurant sits in a strip center off a main road and isn't something you would notice. But, once you step through the doors you feel a nice ambiance. The food was so flavorful and they have a nice wine selection. I ordered snapper with shrimp and mussels. It was a fun date night with my husband!

Service was excellent as was the food, although they do not serve hard liquor, they offer beer and wine, but just very limited. Small romantic setting but dine before 7 or the wait will be significant. Valet parking was very professional.

Food and service were great as always. However, the air conditioner must have had an earlier issue as it was very warm when we arrived, but cooled off nicely by the end of our meal.

Another wonderful dining experience! We took the bar seating and enjoyed watching the kitchen and staff in action where the whole restaurant was full! Was great to see Chef Arturo calmly process all the orders and the staff were synchronized with delivering beautiful plates to patrons. We enjoyed the night's specials and with a lovely 2007 La Tradizione Chicanti Classico from Italy. Yep, once again, we were the last to leave. :)

I love Arturo Boada!!! From the valet to the waiters, food, wine, service it’s always a fun time. The only negative is it’s rather warm in the restaurant...probably the brick stove & small restaurant.

We had not visited Arturo's restaurant in over a year as its location is not user friendly, but as usual his food never disappoints. We had the fish special and the margherita pizza and they were both very well prepared and equally delicious. The ambiance is somewhat noisy but very welcoming.

Of all of the outstanding restaurants in Houston, Arturo's still has to be among the very best, if not the very best, for a cool, laid-back, non-pretentious, authentic experience with spectacular food and service.

Arturo himself is always floating around ensuring everyone's happy, but his team is unparalleled. Love the gaspacho and ceviche in particular, but it's all good. I've been going there for about as long as I can remember (even back when it was in Uptown Park), and Arturo continues to bat 1.000.

He had to move us to another table to accommodate a large group, which was a complete non-event as far as we were concerned, but he comped our dessert anyway because he knows how important it is to ensure everyone always has a great experience. When we told him we couldn't decide among three fabulous desserts, he custom-made us a sampler plate of all three. They were all great.
