Table-side cooking is alive and delicious at Arturo’s, where even on busy evenings, the staff prepares certain dishes and sauces at your table. Owner Antonio D’Anna proudly circulates the elegant dinning room either chatting with customers or preparing a dish. His love for his restaurant is very apparent, in fact, he worked as a waiter here for many years before buying the place 18 years ago.
Antonio’s wife, Mimma, and nephew, Tommaso Genovese work in the kitchen, cooking regional Italian favorites that include Veal sorrentino with eggplant and mozzarella in a light sauce, Chicken Scarpariello with sweet Italian sausage, Jumbo Prawns stuffed with crabmeat and topped with toasted breadcrumbs, and Portobello mushrooms in a savory brown sauce. An antipasto cart displays numerous items – from asparagus to zucchini and a dessert cart displays the most luscious cakes and pastries. The mostly Italian wine list is made up of quality selections at reasonable prices.
Service at Arturo’s is professional and friendly. Antonio’s son, Tommy works here full time as manager and has the same love for the business as his father. Tommy’s brother, Nick helps out on busy weekends.
The newly decorated private party room has the same elegance as the restaurant with tall tapered candels and fresh flowers on the tables, comfortable upholstered chairs and original oil paintings. For your special occasion or any night of the week, dining at Arturo’s is a special treat. It’s always a delicious experience at Arturo’s.
