Arturo’s and Osteria are sister restaurants and are way above any other Italian restaurants in Maryland. Both are fantastic

We have been to Arturo's several times now; they have never failed us. The food is so fresh, one knows that the dish was prepared especially for them. Our table included a veal dish, swordfish dish, shrimp scampi, and a huge beautiful steak, all of which were delicious. Service was impeccable as always. So hard to believe that this is in a small strip shopping center in Glen Burnie, but please don't hesitate to try this gem.

We had never been to Arturo's, but had heard good things. It was lovely. It was my wife's birthday and they included a wonderful Hazelnut and Chocolate cake that was delicious. Our entree's were also perfect. They didn't have a bartender on duty during the day we went, but they were still able to provide me with my requested drink. We would definitely go back again.

Second time to Arturo’s and they do not disappoint excellent food and service. Great deserts.

Celebrating my in laws 44th wedding anniversary with my wife’s family. Everyone loved the food and I am sure they will return again without us.

This place is a diamond in the rough.

We will be back again!

Thanks for a great time Arturo’s!

We went to Arturo's for my husband's birthday dinner along with my school-aged daughter and parents (both in their 80s). It took a little time to get our drinks and orders taken, but the food was fantastic. The grilled calamari and seafood medley was an excellent appetizer as were the craft cocktails, including the Gentleman's Fig. The bread was hot and fresh and was served with olive oil, but they brought butter when requested. The dinner entrees - filet mignon, squid ink ravioli with crab, and the special of Halibut with little neck claims and shrimp - were perfectly cooked. The desserts of gelato (salted caramel and vanilla) and the hazelnut cake were great. I would definitely go back again!

We came to celebrate a birthday, a group of 5 people (1 kid).
Food was very delicious we were surprise because it looks kind of sketchy from the outside (in a rural open shopping area) but surprisingly beautiful in the inside. Food was amazing and service was really good - waiting time was a bit longer because the place was packed. They kindly accommodated to out dietary needs which was amazing! We will definatly go back and recommand this place.
It is a rare Gem in the middle of no-where (Glenn Burnie).

This is only the second time I have been here but, I need to go more often. The food was great and every item I have ever ordered there was excellent. The cocktails were very tasty and the espresso and house made lemoncello were top notch. Do yourself a favor and go there.

Outstanding. I met a friend/ customer at this restaurant, after the lunch rush, and it was fantastic! Quiet, so we could drink wine and hear each other talk. The food was phenomenal. I enjoyed the FRESH gnocchi, which melted in my mouth and the servings were the perfect size; not too big. My friend loved the Chicken Marsala; light and extremely moist. The servers were outstanding and always ready to help with our needs.

Yes, I'll be back!

Terrific food. Very fresh seafood. The grilled octopus was excellent, as was the seared tuna. And the duck breast with a port wine reduction (and blueberries) was beautifully presented and delicious. The service was friendly, helpful and professional. Arturo's also has a wonderful wine list. Overall a very pleasant dining experience. I'd highly recommend dining at Arturo's.

We all enjoyed a taste of each other's entree; all were delicious. Don't hesitate to bring out of towners to Arturo's - it's a prize.

Enjoyed a pleasant dinner on a Tuesday evening. It was busier than expected and glad I made a reservation. Service was very good though the waiter seemed a bit rushed. He was the only one on our side of the room. Ambience would have been very good but apparently there is no dress code as a guest wearing rumpled cargo shorts and a logo tee shirt was seated next to us. My beef tenderlion was excellent however the sides were rather ordinary. My spouse’s scampi alla Fradiavolo was too peppery but the shrimp were large and tasty. Compared to other fine dining establishments the value was excellent. Overall it was a very good experience and expect to be back.

I appreciate the privately owned local establishments that take great pride in their food and service compared to the Franchise establishments that have taken over near business hotels. I am 100 nights a year on the road and love when I can find a gem such as Arturo's near a airport hotel corridor

Arturo's remains the best restaurant in Anne Arundel county, and one of the top dining experiences in Maryland. There are damn few restaurants around where you can enjoy authentic, perfectly prepared Northern Italian fare in a quiet, elegant atmosphere. Nick and his staff do it right, and Amber makes a great Manhattan!

There is no questions that Arturo's is the best restaurant in the Annapolis/Baltimore area for great dining! The atmosphere is lovely and the wait staff is wonderful. But the real shining star here is Francisco's cooking. The food is fabulous and the presentation is outstanding. It's like being in Italy but so much better. Even the "non" Italian dishes , especially the fish dishes are worth trying as they are beautifully prepared. Dining out just doesn't get any better than Arturo's.

We have had many meals at Arturo's and they have been consistently good, something I find few restaurants can live up to. Many provide an occasionally good meal but only one or two deliver all the time. Arturo's is one of those. They always have a nice selection of classic Italian meals which additionally include specials on any given day. The service is genuine. They went out of their way to prepare a cocktail they way my mom liked. Everything was served hot, there were no skimpy portions, the only issue we had is that my meal did not come out with the other four entrees. We weren't really given an explanation and I waited a good 5 minutes for it to arrive. It was delicious as were all the entrees. They were busy but that is no excuse, if you don't have all entrees at once then hold them or remake them and offer an apology. Additionally I felt they should have offered a dessert or drink to make up for the deficiency and an apology. This was a relatively minor blip in a successful meal. I would recommend Arturo's and their sister restaurants, Mezzanotte and Osteria 177.

Don’t let the location in a strip mall dissuade you from dining here. Once you’re inside, there’s a nicely decorated interior with good ambience. Friendly staff and delicious fresh food made our dinner great! The fish was fresh and perfectly cooked. Lots of menu options.
