Terrific food. Very fresh seafood. The grilled octopus was excellent, as was the seared tuna. And the duck breast with a port wine reduction (and blueberries) was beautifully presented and delicious. The service was friendly, helpful and professional. Arturo's also has a wonderful wine list. Overall a very pleasant dining experience. I'd highly recommend dining at Arturo's.

This was our third visit to Arturo's and once again, perfecto! The staff is very welcoming and the attention you receive is without description; you are made to feel important. We all enjoyed a taste of each other's entree; all were delicious. Don't hesitate to bring out of towners to Arturo's - it's a prize.

Enjoyed a pleasant dinner on a Tuesday evening. It was busier than expected and glad I made a reservation. Service was very good though the waiter seemed a bit rushed. He was the only one on our side of the room. Ambience would have been very good but apparently there is no dress code as a guest wearing rumpled cargo shorts and a logo tee shirt was seated next to us. My beef tenderlion was excellent however the sides were rather ordinary. My spouse’s scampi alla Fradiavolo was too peppery but the shrimp were large and tasty. Compared to other fine dining establishments the value was excellent. Overall it was a very good experience and expect to be back.

Great authentic Italian food with an expensive wine list. Ambiance was very nice. Our server was excellent until he seemed to forget about us for the past half hour.

I appreciate the privately owned local establishments that take great pride in their food and service compared to the Franchise establishments that have taken over near business hotels. I am 100 nights a year on the road and love when I can find a gem such as Arturo's near a airport hotel corridor

Arturo's remains the best restaurant in Anne Arundel county, and one of the top dining experiences in Maryland. There are damn few restaurants around where you can enjoy authentic, perfectly prepared Northern Italian fare in a quiet, elegant atmosphere. Nick and his staff do it right, and Amber makes a great Manhattan!

There is no questions that Arturo's is the best restaurant in the Annapolis/Baltimore area for great dining! The atmosphere is lovely and the wait staff is wonderful. But the real shining star here is Francisco's cooking. The food is fabulous and the presentation is outstanding. It's like being in Italy but so much better. Even the "non" Italian dishes , especially the fish dishes are worth trying as they are beautifully prepared. Dining out just doesn't get any better than Arturo's.

We have had many meals at Arturo's and they have been consistently good, something I find few restaurants can live up to. Many provide an occasionally good meal but only one or two deliver all the time. Arturo's is one of those. They always have a nice selection of classic Italian meals which additionally include specials on any given day. The service is genuine. They went out of their way to prepare a cocktail they way my mom liked. Everything was served hot, there were no skimpy portions, the only issue we had is that my meal did not come out with the other four entrees. We weren't really given an explanation and I waited a good 5 minutes for it to arrive. It was delicious as were all the entrees. They were busy but that is no excuse, if you don't have all entrees at once then hold them or remake them and offer an apology. Additionally I felt they should have offered a dessert or drink to make up for the deficiency and an apology. This was a relatively minor blip in a successful meal. I would recommend Arturo's and their sister restaurants, Mezzanotte and Osteria 177.

Don’t let the location in a strip mall dissuade you from dining here. Once you’re inside, there’s a nicely decorated interior with good ambience. Friendly staff and delicious fresh food made our dinner great! The fish was fresh and perfectly cooked. Lots of menu options.

We met two other couples at this restaurant on a Friday night. Not much to look at from the outside (in a strip mall). But inside it was cozy and welcoming. Excellent bartender! Waiter was charming and really helped with menu choices. Every dish was wonderful and we would definitely go back.

Typical good Italian food, nothing amazing. This restaurant seems to be popular in Annapolis (as Osteria) due to its location, outward “elegance”, and lack of better Italian options. The menu is the same. You can get much better Italian food at multiple restaurants in Baltimore.

The service at Arturo’s was slow. The food is overpriced.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Arturo’s. We were greeted and seated immediately. The service was excellent throughout and the server was extremely attentive. The food was outstanding. We enjoyed Veal Saltimbuco and a special Cuban penne dish. Both were excellent. We will definitely return.

Arturo's is our "Go To" spot for special occasions. We are always treated well, the food is always top-notch, and, once past the shopping center parking lot, the ambiance is super for an elegant dinner. This past Monday was no exception. Our server Adonis, was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Our dinners were superb! Both my wife's swordfish, and my Veal were done to perfection, and just bursting with flavor. Arturo's has never disappointed.

This was our first time to Arturo's Trattoria. As mentioned elsewhere, it is in a very unassuming location and the visual from the outside does not convey well the experience on the inside of the restaurant. We found the inside of the restaurant to be very pleasant and moderately upscale, but not overdone. Service was excellent, menu options plentiful, and our food was exceptional. Prices are a little on the high side considering the location has no ambiance (you are really paying for the food quality and service only). As an extra plus, the bourbon selection was better than most restaurants in the area. We will return again.
