Italian
One of the prettiest and long-lived restaurants in Boca Raton, Arturo's (featuring Northern Italian fare) is owned and run by consummate restaurateurs Vincenzo and Rosaria Gismondi. Their tuxedo-clad staff are attentive and friendly, and do their best to inform you about, and not just serve, the excellent food.
Arturo's has a number of distinctive and attractive features. The antipasti trolley is filled with a mammoth selection of traditional Italian dishes (don't picture the usual salads - we have enjoyed crab dishes, pastas, stone crabs, grilled eggplant, layered pastries stuffed with veggies and cheeses, smoked salmon, etc). It is marvelous, and, at a very reasonable cost, a terrific way to dine. Due to market fluctuations, some dishes may be priced separately, so be sure to ask if anything on the trolley is not included in the one price given. Entrees are also wonderful. The Dover sole is something to behold, the meats are tender and perfectly prepared in many ways.

From the moment you enter the restaurant you are treated as a very important guest. We arrived early and enjoyed a cocktail at the bar. We were then seated in a beautiful dining area with live piano music and 2 carts of appetizers that are so inviting it's very difficult to make a choice!
Our server was an experienced professional originally from Italy but spoke perfect English. His confident, relaxed manner put us at ease as we made our order.
Suffice to say, it was a marvelous experience that we will try to repeat for all our special occasions!

Old school traditional Italian. Antipasto cart and dessert cart were the highlights. Some of the entrees were hit and miss but overall a great evening. Restaurant decor could use some refurbishing. Would definitely return. Service was excellent.

It is our favorite restaurant in South Florida. We are never disappointed . Food and service are outstanding. They have a piano player on the weekend so the back room can get hard to talk over the music, however, many people choose to sit in that room and dance. A great place to dine !11

We were a large group and at first the waiter panic when I told him separate checks but then it all worked out, the Cesar salad was prepare at the table and it was really good, pasta carbonara excellent, the minestrone soup also very good. The only downsize was I try to bring a cake and they did not let me and when they brought my piece with a candle, they also charge me and did not even offer a plus caffe drink on the house, how rude

The waiter was so bad it ruined our evening. We complained to owner and she did nothing. She told us he has been there for 30 years and is the captain. Well if he was the captain why was he waiting tables? More importantly, why wasn't he waiting our table??

Dinner was delicious. Loved the amatriciana pasta. My husband had his favorite pappardelle with scallops, broccoli and sundried tomatoes. After we shared a whole branzino that was deboned tableside for us. So good and fresh. Good thing we saved room for dessert. The pastry chef out did herself with the limoncello cheesecake. Amazing!
We’ll be back.

Old school Italian fare and environment with professional Black tie service
It’s a throw back to the 80’s when Northern Italian Cuisine was highly competitive and in vogue
Miss this era, it brings back innocence , flavor, respect and fine dining

Service was not up to par. I have been to this restaurant many times but I had to ask for another round of cocktails. I had to frequently ask that our glass of water needs refilling. Finally I had to ask to get our main order done. Our entire table was surprised at such inadequate service

First time dining with two others. Think old world itlain dining. Service is very attentive and friendly. We appreciated that we were allowed to linger a bit longer between service as we were three friends catching up and the restaurant was not at full capacity this prticular evening though busy. Lovely large menu selection and an Italin wine list that is fantastico! We ordered Vermintino by the glass to start then a lovely bottle of Barolo to go with our entrees. What caught our eye was a long table cart that had a large assortment of starter type dishes from which you can select as many different choices as you desire and make your own appetizer plate, which we did and thoroughly enjoyed, especially the marinated white anchovies! Cananole and Tagliatelle Bolognese did not disappoint as our entrees. The dessert cart smelled amazing and was so tempting, instead we elected to have a glass of Lemoncello to end our dining. Arturo's also has piano music that was a easy on the ear and complimented our dining experience. Hope to be back in the area to be able to visit Artuto's again.

The food and the ambience was great. We ordered pasta to split as an appetizer, and a main meal, however the waiter forgot the main meal , so we only got the pasta appetizer. Everyone else was already finished their main meal, when we asked where ours was, by then it was too late because everyone else was done.

Loved every bite. Came in for a midweek dinner with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed it. We ate in the main dining room by a window. So nice that we could hear each other and not have to shout like in most restaurants around Boca. The stuffed zucchini flower appetizers were excellent. Our pasta with vodka sauce was prepared table side and was delicious. Our entrees of Dover sole and Ossobuco were great too. Dessert is a must and we very much enjoyed the homemade cannoli.
Loved it. Great dinner. Great service. Great everything.

I was craving Caesar salad so we came here for lunch last week. My friend and I split a gnocchi filetto pomodoro and I had the Caesar with grilled chicken and she had the lentil soup. Everything was fresh and delicious. Felt very relaxing to be able to sit outside in the outdoor patio area too with the cooler weather we’ve been having. We really enjoyed it.

There was a party in the private room that was noisy and loud.
Table side Caesar salad was mild in flavor and was with wilted romaine. Not crunchy.
Pasta with clams was lacking clams. Only eight baby clams... so that was maybe an ounce of protein. Also lacked flavor.
Room is old and shabby.
I’ve never been to Arturo’s and I’ll never go back!
Don’t waste your money!
