Arturo's is a great find in Glen Burnie. The menu makes it very difficult to chose and everything I have ever tried has been wonderful. Appetizers and salads are large and easily shareable. Pasta dishes are innovative yet have all your favorites. Wild boar ragout papperdelle is fantastic and great comfort food. Service is impeccable and friendly. Not cheap but great value. Nice wine list as well.

Always a great go to.....first, the quality of the food is consistent and absolutely superior. Superior fresh fish with Dover Sole (whole fish) that is unequaled within 20 miles. Fresh pasta always as an alternative. Veal chop is exceptional. There is absolutely nothing better in the area. Locals really enjoy the ability to tap into this wonderful location. Nick (one of the owners) is often there....Servers are very knowledgeable about the menu, just ask them to explain the multi-faceted menu. Enjoy it. There is nothing like this between Baltimore and Annapolis.

I would have loved to give this restaurant a 5+ star review. The food was excellent from the Appetizers Grilled sea scallops, octopus, and shrimp over a bed of arugula and marinated octopus with diced tomatoes, melon, olives walnuts, etc. Pasta dishes Lobster Ravioli and lasagna just wonderful. And my husband Chilean Seabass was so flakey and perfectly cooked. My Veal tenderloin over polenta was outstanding. The Chef is fantastic. And bartender, waiter and staff was first rate and very professional.

Now for the problem, I made reservation in November and checked the web site many times including the 30th of December. On New Year’s eve at 1:35 PM received a call from the restaurant to confirm my reservation. And Nick proceeded to advise me that it was a fixed menu and the cost was $95 per person for a 4 course meal. It was not the cost that upset me, but that he called that late. What if we could not afford that cost? Try finding a good restaurant on New Year’s eve that late. The real problem to this restaurant is the owner does not know how to handle seating, etc. I would suggest that he goes and eats at Charleston and see what great customer service is.

Went to Arturo's for our Christmas Eve dinner. Reservations were at 8 p.m. , however, we did not get our first course until 9:15 p.m. The dinner options were from a fixed menu, so it was strange that it took so long to get three bowls of soup and grilled seafood appetizer. I had the lobster dinner and the lobster looked and tasted undercooked. Everyone else's dinner was very good. The restaurant apologized for the delay and did not charge us for a bottle of wine.

Friends had recommended it and we’d gotten takeout from there before, which was all fine. Went there for what we were expecting would be a lovely Christmas Eve dinner, but left after 90 minutes when we hadn’t received our first course and received no explanation as to why or what was happening.

Food was good but I expected Exceptional. The evening did not live up to my expectations. I will try again for a regular meal service. This was a Christmas Eve meal with a fixed price so I anticipated a stellar performance for the price, but the service end was not as it should be and it reflected on the whole meal. Menu was what it should be for the occasion but the my food was good not outstanding. My main was either under a heat lamp too long or held too long before service so it had dried out. Desert portions should have been uniform but were different cut sizes. Staff seemed confused and overwhelmed.
I was there early enough in the service that the dining room was not full yet so the service problems did not seem necessary. For me it was a disappointment.

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.

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.
