We traveled an hour to dine here and it was worth it! From the minute we walked in we were impressed with the atmosphere and friendly staff. The waiters were attentive and we were asked if we wanted drink refills before we needed them. The menu has wide selection so every taste is met. The food was fresh and flavors excellent. We will definitely be returning.

Hidden gem located in a strip mall in Glenburnie. Once inside it transforms with warm colors and cozy tables. Greeted promptly with choice of still or sparkling water. Cocktails were traditional with modern additions and very balanced. Staff was professional...Keith, our server, was welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. Seafood was extremely fresh, with perfectly prepared pastas-light and creative. Food prices are reflective of the quality of ingredients and preparation- not portion size. These are not family-style portions. Markup on wine was steep; selection was small but good. Overall, totally worth the 15 min drive from BWI hotels on West Nursery Rd.

The food is just unbelievable. Had one of the best fish dishes ever prepared: bass with tarragon, shrimp, and fresh little neck clams. My husband equally enjoyed his lamb chops. Desserts were wonderful. I love that the atmosphere was quiet, relaxed, and the perfect place to enjoy an anniversary. It is in a place where you would never expect to find a great restaurant, but well worth the trip.

Arturo's is always fantastic and is another fine establishment in the group along with Osteria and La Posta. Perfection is what they strive for and always succeed.

As good as any in Baltimore or DC, but in Glen Burnie strip Mall. Walk through the doors and you are transformed into an excellent upscale Italian restaurant with generous portions. I have lived in Italy and New York and would rate this restaurant highly. Innovative menu as well as classics well prepared and fresh. Pasta with pears and garganzola was amazing, better than it sounds. Service was great. Waiter was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about this place.

I took my friend to Arturo’s for his birthday. His heritage is Italian on both sides he enjoyed his pasta Alfredo. They brought him a complimentary dessert and we ended with cappuccino. He loved it.

This restaurant is a hidden treasure. I rarely write reviews, but this place is exceptional. Tucked in a small shopping center, we were not expecting too much at first. To our surprise, the food was outstanding and our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations. Overall, one of the best dining experiences we've had in years!

We went to Arturo's on a Monday night and had the restaurant to ourselves. Everything was superb! I highly recommend the chicken parmesan. It isn't on the menu, but they will make it and the chicken and pasta will melt in your mouth.

My wife and I went to Arturo’s Trattoria mid-week for our anniversary dinner. So, keep that in mind when I say our service was excellent. It was helpful and attentive without being intrusive.
I skipped the appetizer because I find most main courses are enough for me. I had Papparedelle al Ragu di Cinghiale. The homemade pappardelle pasta was perfectly al dente for my taste, and I found the ground, wild boar, tomato ragout sauce deliciously unusual. Wild boar or not, this sauce was not “gamey” in the least.
My dessert was, per usual, a double espresso. I’m happy to say they gave me a generous double.

Wonderful experience. Nick (the owner) greeted us at the door and seats us where we asked to be seated. Ally was our server and she was awesome. The have unique and delicious daily specials as well as a house favorites. The pasta and bread are made fresh daily. Our Caesar salad was delicious as were the lobster ravioli, squid ink seafood pasta and lamb tortellini. They have a decent wine list and desserts are delicious albeit a little smaller than other restaurants.

The food and service at this lovely restaurant is really great. I had the melon and prosciutto appetizer and it was almost a meal! There was a lot of the finest prosciutto I have ever eaten but not nearly enough melon. When I asked for additional melon, it was brought promptly.

I had the Veal Piccata and although the sauce and the capers were perfect, the veal was a bit tough. The mashed potatoes side dish was the most disappointing as they were on the “runny” side.

Our waitress was relatively efficient but she neglected to inform us of the desserts that were on special that day.

Overall, I really like this restaurant. I had been there previously for lunch and was very impressed and that’s why when my husband asked me where I wanted to go for my birthday, Arturo’s immediately came to mind.

Very surprised on how good the food tasted. We drove up to a strip mall. Right away we looked at each other with a Uh-Oh sigh. The place inside is clean and nice enough. The menu was outstanding and the specials were very hard to choose. We had the truffle burrata which was amazing. The parpadelle was homemade and perfectly cooked with crab meat, shrimp & scallops. The other entree was tortellini stuffed with veal an a meat sauce. I will go back and if you are in the area - I highly suggest this diamond in the rough!
