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.

We took our friends here from Pennsylvania. We were excited to show them your lovely restaurant. We were disappointed though by bad service. A server spilled a beverage on her as he walked past her on his way to another table. I saw it and alerted the busboy near us. His response was “I didn’t do it” and he walked away. We had to summon staff 3 times to get a towel and it took two more requests to get some club soda. It was embarrassing. As an aside, the stain never came out and her slacks were ruined. No one ever apologized or sent a manager over.
There are many restaurants in the area. I will think twice before I return.

Arturo’s is a beautiful restaurant. It is a wonderful dining experience,with professional service and outstanding food. Table side preparations of salad and special pastas as well as desserts is unique for restaurants today. Looking forward to a return visit.

Everything was perfect. We had the delicious Caesar salad which was excellent. I had the sole and my husband had the tuna. The pasta dish that I had to start was outstanding. The staff were brilliant, and the pianist was great. Fabulous dinner, and all 8 of us were very happy. The Tiramisu was to die for. Will be back soon for sure.

I will never go to this place again. I have been here more than 40 times over the years. Although I made a reservation a week in advance, it was still 40 minutes before they sat us. They are so greedy that their reservations are meaningless. Plus, I was overcharged for a drink I had already paid for at the bar. Stay away from this place. Go to Josephine's down the block or La Cigale in Delray.

We arrived at the time of our reservation. The table was not ready, so we went to the bar for a cocktail. When the table was ready, the maitre’d seemed perceptibly annoyed that we chose to finish our drinks at at bar before moving to the table.
Otherwise, excellent. My date’s veal chop was the best that she or I ever tasted!

Food, service and lamb dance could not be better. We brought friends from New York here and they felt they were eating in New York City.
Reservation and seating request was honored.
Musician was delightful!
This is a restaurant, no matter how often we return, that does not disappoint.

I have been here before but although. Most people love the ambiance and attention it’s nice for a special occasion
Portions are small at least the presentation looked that way.
But it’s more European

I love Arturo's. It has old world charm the staff is outstanding, the menu is plentiful, the food is delicious. Add the fact that on some nights they have a piano player, that seals the deal.

Very very busy night which may explain why service, while still good, wasn’t quite up to Arturo’s usual standard of excellence. Table side preparation of Caesar salad was outstanding. Freshly made angel hair pasta with porcini was very good. Entrees were delicious & well-prepared, but the (complimentary) bruschetta had stale toast & flavorless tomatoes. Chocolate mousse cake was only fair, but the birthday boy liked it. Piano added a lovely ambiance for my husbands birthday celebration.

We had a 8:00 reservation and had to waited 40 minutes!! I asked for a round table and that wasn’t available for another 10 minutes. I mentioned 2 birthdays and nothing was done until I mentioned it to the waiter. Then only one was acknowledged and we were charged for the dessert!!! We spent over $600 !! There were no accommodations for the wait or birthdays !! This had been our go-to favorite restaurant . We were celebrating my husbands 75th!! And my regular birthday !! Judy gold

We made a reservation for my husbands 60 th birthday. We requested the patio with the piano. We came with our perfectly behaved medical service dog. We were seated in the main room all the way in the corner hidden away. I complained immediately and was told that this is the table because of my dog.
I should have just walked out because I was angry the way we were treated the entire evening.
We asked for the antipasto appetizer cart. We waited a long time for it as it was in the patio. When it was finally brought in we couldn’t see what was on it since we were shoved in the tight corner.
We ordered a special. I t was barely eaten. I asked to have it wrapped. This $40 dish was instead thrown out.
Our bill was $286.00 for 4 people.
My husbands birthday was barely recognized. A candle was placed in a piece of apple strudel.
It was an extremely disappointing night!
We have been coming to Arturo’s for 10 years.
The food and service and ambience has always been impeccable.
How dare they treat us as second class citizens?
The hostess came over to tell us the patio wasn’t on our request there must have been a mix up. I told her that was not true we were stuck here in the corner because of my service dog. She told us that they have service dogs in the restaurant all the time. We told her that is what your owner said. She want happy about that but just walked away.
The waiter staff was short with us and the service was not even close to their usual.
We won’t be returning. Their attitude lost a very good customer
We won’t be returning.
