Our first time at this restaurant. We joined friends from Australia who are there weekly when they lived in Houston. The food was absolutely amazing, the chef/owner came by for a visit, and the service was wonderful. Prices were very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Highly recommend!!

First time here. Dined in the wine room with my wife on her birthday. A little small but good for two. Food was delicious. Servers very attentive and friendly. Price was very reasonable. Without Open Table I never would have found this restaurant. Will certainly be back many times.

Arturo Boada's always offers a great meal. The rather short menu was augmented by a few healthy specials. One was a seafood paella that was delicious and actually would be enough for two. The other was a flounder fillet with a nice crabmeat dressing with a light sauce. Wine choices cover a good range and are reasonably priced. It was a full house, but the service was still very attentive and competent and included a personable visit by the owner!

We are from New York and made reservations for 4 through Open Table based upon reviews and the menu. We were seated in the wine room, which just accommodates a cozy table for 4. This was likely just our luck, but it was perfect. We noticed the main room was much louder and more lively, but our "room" was perfect. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Arturo came by our table twice to say hello and check on us. Dessert was fabulous.

All in all a wonderful night out with friends.

Hands down the best Italian food I have ever had. Definitely worth another visit. Note that it is an Italian family reataurant, so noise levels are high.

I have lived in Houston for over 30 years, and Arturo Boada is my top of the list favorite restaurant. I have eaten there many times - on dates with my husband, celebrating a girlfriend's birthday lunch, and for dinner with other couples. It has consistently been fantastic, in terms of both the service as well as the food. Nice selection of wine and our waiter always makes sure I am happy with my choice and offers a taste to be sure in advance. I am a hard person to please in terms of eating out because I have food intolerances (no grain, no diary) and they accommodate me every time. The fish is always fresh, and the portion sizes never skimpy. I love this cozy gem of a restaurant tucked away on Delmonte. Always a pleasure to eat there...

As always we enjoyed the food and service so much! The only thing I would change is the noise level. It’s a small place and when it fills up, it’s loud.

I had been wanting to try this restaurant for several years but my husband (meat and potato eater) wasn't keen on it. Well, I pulled the wife's birthday trump card and we visited with some friends. The food is A-MA-zing!!! And I'm please to say my husband is just as enthusiastic and wants to return soon. We started with the Camarones Henesy En Hamaca (phenomenal - the sauce is to die for), the cerviche (literally, best I've ever had), the Beef Blue (outstanding - my husband tried my friends tapa and decided to order it for his main meal), and Carnita tacos (decent.) For dinner, we had the Suhrid Spicy beef tips (good), the fresh mussels with jalapeno and cilantro sauce (excellent), the Beef Blue (an obvious repeat), and the Veal Chop (very good.) Additionally, the service was excellent - professional, fun, and informative. For the four of us, dinner + 1 bottle of wine + tip was under $400.00 - not bad at all for fine dining. We will absolutely return.

About the food: Great Italian-themed offerings! Burrata appetizer and farfalle pasta main course were super. Tiramisu has unusual and pleasant flavor, perhaps citrus flavoring in the sponge cake? Good wine selection available.

On the personal side: Diego is an attentive and enthusiastic waiter and an exceptional guide to the wonderful culinary creations of chef Arturo Boada. Chef Boada visits individual tables to make sure that everyone is happy.
