Arturo’s definitely exceeded our expectations of a restaurant in Glen Burnie. Although the outside and location are super misleading, the insight is rather tasteful with obvious thought in decor and setting.

The food was so good, we basically licked our plates clean. Food was made from scratch with no noticeable shortcuts (which is rare in Maryland). Even the table olive oil was great (from a local boutique oil store in Annapolis).

My partner and I ordered the same thing-arugula salad and the special boar lasagna. Some personal issues arose so we weren’t able to order infolge in Dinner. But we enjoyed a cocktail and glass of wine.

If you want a treat or nice date in Anne Arundel County, this is the absolute best we’ve found in years.

The meals were absolutely fantastic! I had the Sea Bass. It was the finest fish meal I've ever had. Bar none! The Grilled Calamari second to none. We will return to this restaurant in the future.

Yes I would recommend Arturo's, however I was very dissapointed that they ran out of Lobster bisque on Valentine's Day by 7:30pm especially when it was a fixed menu for that day.

The food was good (my fish was cooked to perfection) but pricey. It would be nice if there were more accommodations for special diets. A gluten free menu was not available and no substitute was offered for potatoes without an up charge. I have a reaction to nightshade vegetables and had to pay $14 to substitute risotto. I understand a modest up charge but it made my entree about $50, way too much money for what I had.

I loved their flagship restaurant in Annapolis but was disappointed by the quality and flavor of the meal at Arturo's. All 3 meals were a little under seasoned and my halibut was overcooked to being a bit mushy.

I think you owe it to yourself to try this place. I drive from Reisterstown because it's that good.
Awesome menu and nice wine list. They are flexible when it comes to ordering exactly what you want.

We were visiting family and found that Arturo's had a great rating from Trip Advisor. The restaurant is very pretty with nice artwork, food was great but limiting for my GF daughter since they didn't have risotto on Saturday evening nor did they have GF pasta available. I would definitely go back but would bring GF pasta with me.

Have you ever dined at a restaurant with someone and said, "Oh my God, how did we not know this place existed???" This is that kind of restaurant. Not only is it five minutes from our house-- it is hands down the best restaurant in the area. Once you step inside, you will forget that it is located in a strip mall. It is relaxed and cozy and has the most charming ambience-- mainly due to the warm, rosy lighting that immediately sets the tone for a wonderful evening. The staff is exceptional, friendly and knowledgeable, and they showered us with personal attention-- even letting us sample a few wines to ensure we selected the perfect bottle for our tastes. The food is phenomenal and prepared with the freshest ingredients. The portions were just right-not too large that you feel stuffed, and not too small that you leave feeling hungry. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, so we treated ourselves to decadent coffee drinks to go with our pistachio-ricotta cheese cake. Everything was impeccable--right down to the rest rooms, which were immaculate. Always judge a restaurant by the cleanliness of the bathroom-- trust me. I obviously can't say enough good things about this restaurant, so I will close by saying-- if you are looking for an intimate, candlelit dinner experience with top notch food and service-- give Arturo's a try.

I thoroughly enjoyed Arturo’s Trattoria. My son just moved to the area and we decided to have a nice meal after moving him in. I will definitely come back on my next visit. The food was delicious. The pasta was fresh and the burrata appetizer was the best thing we ate. The only disappointment was the service. It was just okay. I don’t like when plates are cleared before everyone at the table has finished eating. Our wine glasses were empty before anyone noticed to offer us another glass. Other than that, it was a very pleasurable experience. It wasn’t enough to keep me from coming back, but it’s something that they can work on.

I've been coming to Arturo's for a couple years. The food is consistently amazing. Start with the daily soup and a beautiful burrata and grilled veggies. They make the most gorgeous, delicate gnocchi and fresh pastas. Everything is scratch-made. There's nothing I've ordered that is just good.. it's always fantastic. The whole branzino that is filleted at table side is an event, and the fish is delicate and perfect every time. Finish with a pistachio cheesecake. You won't be disappointed.

Not many people on Wednesday night so we had excellent service. You needed to wait some time for food. It’s not recommended if you are in a hurry. Servers are very kind and helpful. Food and drink were delicious. I personally recommend squid ink pasta, the best I’ve ever had. The only one thing is price is a little high. But overall that was an amazing experience.

I dined at Arturo's Trattoria in Glen Burnie on Thursday evening. The experience was five stars across the board and a memorable evening for one who considers himself a foodie.

The food was superb, the service impeccable and all somehow enhanced by the quirky location.

I have sampled many, if not most, of the top tier restaurant in the Baltimore- Washington region. Arturo's Trattoria was the equal of any and clearly first in terms of Italian cuisine.

Special thanks to the proprietor, Nick, for his hospitality and more importantly to Chef Francisco for his artistry.

Bravo!!

Great dinner again at Arturo's. The grilled calamari appetizer was outstanding as usual. They had a special Dover Sole that was just flown in from Netherlands. Whole fish was filleted tableside. Delicious and no bones. Best Italian restaurant anywhere near BWI airport and as good if not better than you will find in Annapolis or DC.
