    I noticed they’ve cut back on their afternoon Prix Fixe. No veggie with the Pollo Picatta, hard to get bread for the table. Also, there was one big group and a few two tops but it took forever to get the check. Still a decent value in these inflated price times. I’ll go back for sure!

    Delightful dinner in a cute spot. We had a table of 5 and everyone enjoyed apps, dinner and dessert! The tables are spread out (not crowded) which helped Covid concerns. Great experience!

    The noise level makes it difficult to enjoy conversation over dinner. Service was eager to clear our plates but there were no people lined up awaiting a table. The waitress lovely but difficult to get her attention

    Overall the food was good. Nothing amazing but very nice for a quick dinner before a show or concert. Wouldn't recommend the Cacio e pepe . Peppercorns were not crushed up and had way too many peppercorns throughout the pasta.

    My friend and I arrived around 6-610 for a 615 reservation. We did not get our food til 740, and had to rush to eat as we had a show at the Beacon that we were late for. We informed the server and mgr several times we needed to get there, and were told repeatedly our food “was coming”. The mgr said they weren’t prepared for the sudden rush, but when we arrived it was relatively quiet and most people that arrived after us got their food earlier than we did. I used to dine there all the time when I lived a block away but unfortunately will not return.

    I had a wonderful evening with friends--waitstaff couldn't be nicer, so the atmosphere is homey and comfortable, the food is truly delicious (cacio e pepe and the gnocchi are always my favorites), and it's just a great place to go.

    Had been enjoying coming here again after the new management team arrived and this time came with our cousins looking forward to a delightful dinner. Sad to say, it was not up to par to the last few times. For one, the waiter was very perfunctory and abrupt and was hard to find from time to time. And then my husband ordered the branzino for $32 and we couldn't believe what a small portion it was. And then to charge $5 for broccoli instead of the included spaghetti with my eggplant parmigiana was a bit excessive and it was very peppery to boot. Needless to say, my expectations were quite deflated.

    Five of us went for lunch and had a lovely time. Very good food and friendly service. We sat outside but toured the inside which is very large and attractive. There is a large covered garden in the back which was not open for lunch. Would definitely recommend it.

    Food so-so. Found menu limited. Chicken parmigiana very dry. Had to ask for extra sauce. Serving utensils had to be asked for with the salad and extra sauce. Place is big and comfortable to sit in so will recommend to others but they should not order parmigiana.

    My favorite local restaurant. Indoor tables are well-spaced and there is plenty of outdoor seating as well. Best of all, the menu is extensive in all categories from appetizers to pizza, from pasta to entrees… and a good dessert selection. A good value in a pleasant ambiance makes it a great choice.

    I took a client here for dinner, and we had a lovely time. The cocktails were perfect, and the food was delicious. The only critique I would have would regard the appetizers. The Frito Mixto was mostly zucchini and was a bit like a soggy lump. The delicious and spectacular Tuna Tar tar came with a third of the amount of chips that would have been appropriate. Otherwise, a perfect evening.

    I always enjoy brunch and dinner at Arte Cafe, and am glad they’ve made it through the pandemic thus far. The outdoor dining in front is nice because it’s on a quiet side street.
