Good food and service. Reasonably comfortable seating and a nice welcome. They dropped the fairly priced "Prix Fix" and have now become a somewhat "pricey" East Side restaurant. Now they offer a $40.00 "Prix-Fix" but don't go there if you are on a budget. They offered no "specials" but the regular menu has many choices. $280.00 for dinner for seven, including three children, is something we will not repeat, but just the two of us, will drop in for a nice mid-week dinner from time to time.

I think Arturo's is one of the best Italian Restaurants in New York! The pasta dishes are authentic and simply out of this world. I especially enjoy the Penne a la Vodka. The sauce is superb. The veal and chicken dishes are also five star. Service is professional and attentive. You just can't beat this place.

I stopped in on a recommendation from a friend - I found the atmoshpher to be warm, authentic and cozy - and the staff pleasant. Food fabulous ! enjoyed my conversation with watier when he found out I was Irish for fun he bought out a dish of mash potatoes as a tribute to my Irish heritage - hillarious ! I highly recommend - enjoy from the Irish guy!

My wife and I have been going to this restaurant once a month on and off for the past four years. The other night, we just wanted a light dinner: soups, salad and a drink. We were told by the waiter when we placed the order that we could not sit at the table because we did not meet the minimum $15.50 per person requirement to sit at the table, and should move to the bar. The restaurant had tables available, so we were not taking up a needed spot. The waiter's attitude was both rude and disinterested. My wife and I felt very uncomfortable, we eat out several times a week and have never had this happen before. We pass by the restaurant every night on the way home but we will never go there again.

we are from out of town and this was walking distance to where we were stating. the best part and worst part was sititng in the open window for dinner- very romantic, but too many people walking their dogs by and letting them poop right in front of us - pullease! Anyway, that aside, the service was good, efficient, nothing over the top-no conversation with the waiter! The food was good, I have had better. The prices were typical NY, not outrageous but average for a UES neighborhood. All in all a nice meal. I may or may not go back, but would probably try somewhere else first.

I think Arturo's been around since I was in grammar school on E 82nd, but I'm so glad I finally gave it a try after years of bland UES disappointments. I was craving hearty, old-school Italian, and their pasta Bolognese and eggplant rollatini were it! Nothing precious here - just tasty and fresh; even the bread, which I've come to expect but rarely consume, arrived soft and warm - perfect for scooping up every bit of the rich sauce.

Ok, so their food is out of this world. You can taste their Chicken Franciaise and hear the angels singing in heaven. However, they are really fussy about delivery and substitutions...they won't just put a little oil and garlic on my pasta...they ONLY follow what is on the menu (I'm kind of allergic to tomatoes)....SO RIGID. I wish they'd relax. Otherwise, it is the best Italian I've ever eaten.
