In February of 1992 Artu opened its doors to the world, starting with outstanding sandwiches and mouth watering roasted meats, we continued to evolve and grow. Since then we have steadily added to our repertoire. From those sandwiches and roasted meats, we have produced old-world comfort food dishes to current interpretations of those classics that still make the most discerning eater reminisce of their childhood.

A wonderful dinner! The service was excellent as was the food. Great wine selections by the glass as well. We had an outside table on a beautiful evening and enjoyed the Hannover street vibe.
First visit to Artu. Excellent dinner and great service from our waiter Andrew.
We had a nice North End experience at Artu. It was lively and the food and service were very good. We highly recommend it!
The food was adequate at best. The servers were friendly and responsive. The lasagna came out cold and when we asked they fixed it. As well as giving the table an order of tiramisu. Mixed reviews.
I loved the atmosphere. We arrived early fir our reservation and were seated. Loved the spacing of the tables. Service was excellent and everyone was friendly. We had 4 different meals and they were all delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant.
We lucked into an outdoor reservation during graduation weekend. Food was terrific. Great service and really enjoyed being in the North End with so much going on....I'd definitely return.
We had a great time! Felt very safe even in times of Covid.
Wendy was working the bar, Mateo was our server in the upstairs dining area and our food was amazing!
Overall, great night out at one of my favorite North End restaurants
I have lived in this area for about 30 years and Artu is our restaurant of choice. Our table ordered the Eggplant Parmesan, caprese salad, lasagna, and Eggplant/Chicken Parmesan and all entrees did NOT disappoint. Food is fantastic. Service was great.
The bread could be better but overall delicious food and drinks
So sad that the Charles Street location closed. Happy to come to the North End location. Always delicious food and great service. Thank You!
Nothing short of excellent on all counts. We will definitely be back again soon!
Great place. I have been hear multiple times. Food and service were great. Glad to come back next time I am in Boston North End.
Food & Service were excellent, very loud hard to talk
The evening was perfect! The wait staff were attentive, friendly and professional. The food was delicious, prompt and lovely in presentation. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Artu is one of our favorite spots in the North End. It was a great way to kick-off the Spring/Summer Seasons!
Not what I expected for the North End. Food was bland. Service was great and so was the ambiance. Maybe the chef was having a bad day?
Food is always excellent. We enjoy the wait staff and a deal experience here. Never disappointment !!
Long time favorite. Food was excellent and service was perfect. Strongly recommend.
I walked away from dinner feeling just "meh". I didn't have a terrible experience however it wasn't great either. We felt very rushed from the moment we sat down. The waiter was speaking quickly, clearly didn't have time to linger at our table, that kind of vibe. We were reminded of the 90 min time limit - and we felt it during our time there. Our order came out very quickly but the food was ok, not great. There was also a weird vibe of 90's hip hop playing over the loud speaker which didn't seem to fit the experience they were trying to provide. We did sit in the front room which I didn't feel had much character but there was an area up a flight of stairs that perhaps I would have liked more? Overall I would rate Artu as an OK.
Fantastic dinner and service
Our waiter wasn’t nice or friendly at all! This was not our first time at artu and I loved the chicken parm the last time we came. This time the sauce tasted like chef boyardee and was inedible. We were so disappointed and will not be back. The food would have been excused if the service were good but our waiter was rude and seemed annoyed at us right off the bat.
The one saving grace was the gentlemen who delivered our bread. He was so kind.
Awesome experience, attentive staff, great ambience. Food and drink were excellent. We felt very taken care of, and safe in the time of covid dining. Definitely recommend!!
Service was excellent. Portions were solid. Dessert was good
The manager was very sweet and considerate about having a long wait time. Comped a lot of our meal due to the wait!
My husband and I recently moved back to Boston last year after being away for 10 years. Artu was one of our favorite restaurants back then and we had the opportunity to return on 2/12. The cuisine was as artful and flavorful just as we remembered. Glad to see the consistency of the brand remain!
I’ve been to this location in the past. I was VERY disappointed when I went this past Friday night. The food was poor to decent. The ambiance was horrible. Right when we sat down we felt rushed. Yes, there are COVID restrictions I completely understand that but the waiter came off rude & overall just a poor experience. No romance. All young kids. Would not recommend. Honestly felt dirty inside.
Food was good. Service not so much. The waiter was very inattentive, which would have been ok if the place were busy, except it wasn’t. Told me he was going to bring me grated cheese and disappeared for 15 minutes. By the time he brought me cheese my pasta was luke warm. My partner’s iced tea was basically dirty water. Tasted like nothing. Not all north end restaurants are created equal...
Poor service and cold food. We didn’t complain but he never asked us how things were or offer more drinks :(
The bartender was out standing! Attentive, not obtrusive, really made me enjoy the dinner experience. Theresa
Food had turned Old meat
The atmosphere was great, the ambiance amazing and the food excellent.
Excellent lunch! Happy to support a small family owned restaurant!!!
Best authentic Italian food in North End
We had a wonderful date night on Saturday at Artu. We reserved for outdoor dining. I'm so happy they have plenty of room outdoors. Indoor was possible, but I don't feel comfortable eating indoors just yet. The food was AMAZING. We had wine, antipasti, pasta, secondi, and dessert. It was a wonderful dining experience.
I had gone with friends for a birthday and everything was absolutely spectacular! Every dish and drink we ordered was delicious and cooked to perfection! Do not have enough good things to say about this restaurant!!!!
Get the burrata
We ate outside on a warm fall night. It was beautiful sitting outside on the lovely tables. We arrived 15 minutes early but were seated right away. The waitress was very accommodating and came by our table several times but not overly so.
The food was delicious - very fresh and large enough proportions to take home.
It was a luxurious dinner and not too bad for the price.
I'd definitely return!
food and service were both great, drinks were excellent
The food was fantastic!
As the days are getting colder, I'd recommend heat lamps for the outdoor seating.
There are SO many choices in Boston's North End for Italian. We stayed at the W and were directed to Artu for dinner. Our family of three was delighted. The food was incredible and the service, provide by the charming Mateo, was impeccable. Thank you for a great experience. The lobster arancini was amazing, as was the Bolognese and the linguine with clams.
