Don’t let the location or exterior fool you—this place is a gem. While we had a bit of a wait when we first arrived, the food, the wine and our waitress made it worth it. Will definitely be back!

As always, the menu choices are outstanding and the specials really are special. By far, the best Italian food in MD. (Coming for someone who has lived in many of the Northeast great food cities)

Arturo’s has some of the best seafood and pasta dishes in Anne Arundel county. It’s a great ambiance and their grilled Octopus is among the best anywhere. They have a great lunch special and if you don’t see exactly what you want, the chef is flexible enough to meet your requests. Has become one of our go-to places to dine.

We’ve had the pleasure of dining at our favorite restaurant, Arturo’s, many times and have left several 5* reviews, so to add another could be viewed as biased. So here’s the feedback from the well-traveled couple that joined us recently:

Arturo’s! What a treat! The best Italian food we have had outside of Italy! (And even better than some in Italia!) First, comforting minestrone. Next, the grilled seafood appetizer was magnificent: octopus, scallops, shrimp, and calamari were superbly prepared and incredibly delicious. Sharing three pastas (lobster ravioli, squid inked, and wild boar) was a sensual delight! Moving on, the caramelized sea bass was totally memorable. Decadent peach tart with gelato for dessert. OH! We must mention the wine: Scouts’ Honor, was a perfect accompaniment; and the Fig Vodka and homemade Limoncello after dinner were superb.

Nick and his team made everything special. We all left fully sated with “Go Boxes” of “leftovers,” which fed three for brunch a day later. Go, explore, enjoy! You will not be disappointed!

This was our first time dinning here and the food and service were perfect, Nick is lucky to have such good employees. I had Veal Piccata with mashed potatoes and green beans, this dish was a 10 out of 10. My wife had Tortellacci di Vitello Burro e Salvia which was superb. Can’t wait to go back.

Went for an anniversary dinner and everything was amazing! Both dishes (fish and beef) were cooked perfectly and the sides were delicious. We ordered the special appetizer which was also wonderful. The staff was friendly and offered recommendations when needed.
10/10 would visit again.

Really good food, but had to stand at hostess stand without acknowledgement for 10 minutes. Hostess never showed but manager sat us. Then no sign of a waiter/waitress for over 20 minutes until we waved down the manager again. Even after waitress was assigned everything was slow.

This may be intentional, and if so it’s a feature not a fault. I ordered a Negroni and received one that had been made with dry vermouth, rather than the traditional sweet. Given the slow service discussed above, there was no way I was sending it back…

Don't let the outside appearance of this restaurant fool you. It's what's inside that should count, and let me tell you that this is one of the best places I have been to. The food, people, service - all great. .. but the food! Don't take my wood for it. Go there and check it out for yourself. You will not be disappointed.

Had dinner with my two adult children Saturday. It was a little slow getting started but after we got our cocktails things went smooth. We got the burrata con verdure with prosciutto and the grilled octopus both were wonderful. We also love the bread to dip in the sauce from the appetizers. The daughter got the lasagna, my son got the new Zealand lamp chops and I got the veal chop Milanese. All were awesome. We also got a side of papparedella Cinghiale and the pasta just melts in your mouth. We ordered a bottle of Amarone Masi which they didn't have. That's the second time we dinned and they didn't have our first bottle of wine chosen. We'll be back.

We went for a birthday celebration. Unfortunately, 2 out of the 3 main dishes served were extreme salty. Mine was comped, my friend refused to tell them hers was salty too, so hers wasn’t comped. They never acknowledged it was a birthday, so that was a let down too.

Didn’t stop talking about the food all the way home! We had went on Valentine’s day and loved it so much that we decided to go back. We still loved it! We had the poletti meatballs which were meatballs with a nice bite to it that also didn’t have the bread-y aftertaste that can come from poor meatballs. We had the medium-ribeye with mushrooms that was phenomenal, Lobster ravioli(during valentines day), and the veal tortellini. Every plate had us asking for more bread to scoop up the sauce. The waiter was really nice and recommended wonderful wine pairings.

If there were any drawbacks it would be that there were only 2 medium sized meatballs but for the price it was a solid deal. Prices are on the higher end but worth every bite and tucked away enough that you would be able to brag to your friends about this really good secret italian restaurant you know.

Our two meals were the worst we have ever had in a restaurant! My husband had the fish that was extremely dry which was a special, Halibut. I had a crab pasta dish and the pasta was not even done, was hard, in an Italian restaurant with so little crab it was hard to find! We were extremely disappointed!
