We go once a week for the Branzino, a sea bass, but the rest of the menu is just as good. Everything here is as it should be at a fine restaurant. This is our favorite in Houston and we recommend it often to friends.

This place has two faces but ignore the Blazer and Blue rinse crowd and make it your own. I am always in Jeans and a T shirt when I go here and have never felt overdressed.

If you need a quiet chat with someone then outside is best

Arturo's is one of our favorites, or really, our favorite. They try to make you feel comfortable, from hostess and servers to management. The kitchen excells.

We have dined at Arturo's four times and now are sure that this is a very fine restaurant. Wine list, food and service are all excellent. The management is attentive and available to grant requests. Nice bar, too.

As far as Italian restaurants go I would definitely rate this one in my top 10 in Houston. There are only a couple that are very exceptional but this one is decently priced and has an overall good authenticity.

In a city with several Italian resturants to choose from, Arturo's stands out as a top choice. The setting is intimate, the food is great and the chef can be seen mingling with the patrons at any given time. Try the mushroom stuffed ravioli with lump crab meet on top.
