This place is amazing! We used to go once a month to have dinner. If you like real italian food you must visit Arturos. You can also order it to take it home. The personal is kind and the food is amazing. And it's not expensive at all.

My husband and I live locally and had been wanting to come here for such a long time, but it's nearly impossible on the weekend with such long wait times. So we came here during the week to celebrate a new job and they still had outdoor seating since the weather was still good. It was fantastic!!! We shared both... More

It's hard to believe that this gem of a restaurant continues to be superb. Not just the fine Italian food ( even with a limited menu) but the terrific service. As busy as this place is ( no reservations, sometimes a longish wait) the greeters are patient to a fault and the servers and smiling pleasant and always informed. They... More

I could go to any restaurant for my birthday, and I always choose Arturo's. Years ago I was delighted by their mushroom pizza with thinly sliced fresh mushrooms (not the rubbery kind you get at your average pizza place) it's the next best thing to a truffle. The roasted broccoli with sardines is better than dessert. Crostini with ricotta Devine.... More

My husband and I have been frequent patrons of Arturo's since they first opened 9 years ago. I love the authenticity of the food and Dan's (the owner) dedication to cooking with the best local ingredients. Dan has traveled extensively in the Tuscany and Piedmont regions of Italy and has brought authentic recipes to his restaurant. Although the menu is... More

I never understood the hype over wood fired pizza until I had Arturo's. The dough is fermented in house with proprietary yeast and I understand each new batch is made with some of the prior batch. This leads to a crust that gets that wonderful wood oven char yet has a fantastic chew. They also make a fantastic mushroom ravioli... More

Arturos Pizza is well-known in the Maplewood area because they utilize wood-fired pizza ovens to create unusual artisan pizzas that are delicious. The family-friendly eatery is usually crowded with locals, and since they don't take reservations, there is usually a line waiting outside. This BYO restaurant also features delicious pasta dishes, and their daily specials are worth exploring. Come hungry... More

Amazing pizza. Get there early if you don't want to wait, we arrived at 4:45 because they open at 5. The truffle pizza with sausage and mushroom was by far the best. Could have ate the entire pie. I will no longer be getting pizza anywhere else in the area!!!
