    1960s Italian Food

    I'm in the neighborhood, but never ate here til last night. I'm mystified by all the reviews praising the food, or the value for money. It was a pleasant enough place to sit and a large menu...but really a time-travelling trip to the Italian-American food I remember as a kid in the 1960s. Our meal was fine, but un-touched by any hint of Italian authenticity (I travel and eat in Italy often), and equally untouched by any of the changes in American cuisine over the last half century. Heavy sauces drowning the pasta, vastly overcooked fish, and oily fried stuff dominate. The bill was no lower than far better places close by. But the portions were big (another 1960s throwback). So if "value for money" just means quantity, I guess this was plenty of value. But if value means great food for a low bill, well, the bill was no lower than better Italian places on the UWS. The service, equally friendly and slow.

    It went down hill

    I used to go here all the time. It's right down the street from me. The food used to be delicious. In the last 2 years the food and service have gone down hill. Last time I went there the food was served to my friends while I waited for 10 minutes. Finally I asked the waiter how much longer it would be. He never returned with an update or reassurance. After 20 minutes, I cancelled my order. He was very indignant. He should have apologized and offered me something else. I won't go back there. So disappointing and rude.

    One of my favorite places

    Arte's is fantastic, and there is nothing wrong with the service I don't know what those other posts are talking about. I've been there a dozen times and always had a very pleasant experience, and it is incredibly well priced for the quality of the food. Absolutely recommended.

    Pleasantly surprised at value to quality of food ratio. Would have and have paid more for food and ambiance. Will return and bring others.

    Great Food, Lovely Atmosphere, service?

    My husband and I ate here on a Saturday night. The hostesses were fine and we were seated promptly. The decor is lovelyit's a surprisingly large restaurant. Lots of black & white pictures and posters on the walls, comfortable tables, etc. The menu is expansive and it all sounds goodwe had excellent Caprese salads (best in the neighborhood) and I had a pasta dish with spicy sausage. My husband had a pizza. It was all delicious and our bill was only $58. However, the service was bizarre we only saw our waiter twice, our salads came out literally 1 minute after ordering, and it felt like we were in a diner given how rushed and brusque the service was. However, the food really was excellent and you can't beat the price for a nice meal.

    Arte no more ?

    I had not gone back at Arte in few months and finally decided to go back. Such a disappointment. There was a time when I use to get dressed to go at Arte (Pasta).Food is not what it was anymore. I was served a microwaved Lasagna. Hot on the outside and cold in the center.C'mon. Service almost like the other review says. Like a greek dinner. Did the old owner sell the business ?

    Greek Dinner ?

    Where is this place going to ? Service it has been a while that has been almost nonexistent but now the quality of the food is bad too. If the kitchen or the stuff can not handle that many seats perhaps they should go back where it began.
