The food, cocktails and wine were amazing. They appeared to be short handed the night that we were there but the service was still good. Highly recommend for a special occasion.

The food was fabulous, took a while to get our bread. The waiter was very knowledgeable. He was a little bit slower than we would have liked, but he knew the menu very well and make smart recommendations. He even found out it was my wife's birthday!

New England visitors enjoyed the dining experience immensely. Very comfortable restaurant with professional, attentive wait staff. Food is exceptionally prepared and presented. Macadamia nut encrusted halibut (special) combined the sweet, moist fish with texture and a bit of smokiness from the toasted nuts. Veal marsala tender with a balanced sense of sweetness. Nice wine list with a balance of offerings. Only 15 minutes from BWI. Treat yourself to a great meal before a flight or upon arriving back to Baltimore region.

We were seeking a location half way between Annapolis and Towson and Arturo’s in Glen Bernie fit the bill. An unassuming location in a strip mall camouflaged a lovely, elegant interior. The staff was exceptional and went out of their way to accommodate our menu requests. They prepared a special risotto for me that was outstanding, and the caramelized sea bass my friend ordered was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Our experience was exceptional and we will definitely be back.

6:30 reservation. We didn’t get our appetizer until 8:25. Our drink and food order were placed right away. After an hour wait we were asked what we ordered again. Our server appeared to be drunk. She soeach was impaired, her hands were shaking. She blamed the delay in getting our food on the kitchen staff. Our food was very good when we finally got it.

We went to Arturo’s Trattoria for our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was tasty, delivered to our table in a timely fashion and the staff were incredibly helpful and checked up on us intermittently but they weren’t overbearing. The one thing I’d comment on is that portions are on the smaller side so if you’re looking for a filling meal I wouldn’t skip over the appetizers.

Reservations made through open table allowing me to schedule the lunch and invite the business partner at the same time. When we arrived we were greeted by name and as requested seated at a quiet part of the restaurant. The server was excellent and the food was both fresh and excellent. Will definitely consider for future business lunches and dinner. Definitely a neighbor gem.

Arturo's is a hard to beat restaurant - wonderful food, great service and ambiance . Don't be turned off by the location in a small strip of stores and worth finding. The menu is varied enough to please everyone and the wine list is extensive - it's great for both special occasions and every day dining.

We loved everything about Arturros. The food was amazing. We had just returned from traveling to Italy and the risotto, pasta, duck and salad were better than any we had abroad. We will definitely return and I have recommended Arturros to several friends.

Maybe the best osso bucco (elk shank) I've ever had. Arturo's continues to surprise and amaze with their creative dishes, home-made pasta, unique cocktails (best Manhattan around), and superior service. It's the best place around for fine dining in a quiet, elegant atmosphere.

Arturo's is one of the best restaurants in the Baltimore -Annapolis area. And not just for Italian which is like eating in Italy. The chef Francisco prepares amazing fish dishes especially the sea bass. The wait staff is personable and attentive. The wine list will satisfy everyone's taste. From the presentation to the incredible flavors, this is a great restaurant to enjoy wonderful cooking when dining with friends and family.

This is still the finest over all Dinning in the State. The only Dinning that could beat it would be in Italy, the food would be the same but the surround's would make a difference.

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.
