From the farm to table vegetables, to the wood-fired pizza, to the delicious pastas, everything's good. Only downside is the inevitable wait for a table. Wish it were bigger!

This is a cute place and with friendly and warm wait staff. The brick oven pizza is good, but I've tasted better. The crust is often a little burnt but overall is tasty. The salad was delicious and fresh. The atmosphere is very nice.

We go to Arturos A LOT. Pretty much once a week or sometimes even more. It is definitely upscale pizza and pasta and many people seem to grumble abut that and the higher cost, but we think it is worth it and it is nonetheless very family/child friendly. Dan has really made something of what used to be a by-the-slice... More

Luckily BYO makes the experience less expensive, but wonderful food and great selection of eclectic pies. Definitely not a Dominos.

Unfortunately they don't take reservations, therefore be prepared to wait a little while - but without a doubt waiting is worth it. Arturo's has an incredibly good pizza, also the bread with olive oil is very tasty. The menu itself is rather short, and doesn't have desserts. For us this wasn't any issue, as everything we had was so delicious... More

We didn't enjoy our experience the first time my family dined at Arturo's. However, we have since ordered Pizza and salad meals on a couple other occasions and thoroughly enjoyed the delicious Pizza. The Santo Pizza is my favorite. The restaurant has very few dining tables and can feel cramped if dining in. The decor is also not particularly that... More

Arturos has some of the Best Pizza in NJ... The Thin Crust Margarita pizza with Sausage is just too awesome. They do have good salads and pasta dishes but I usually come here for the Pizza.

What a treat to come to our local pizzeria for lunch, and a business lunch at that. Fantastic variety of a menu, including daily specials and lunch special sandwiches. Our party of 2 opted for the daily special - farmhouse salad and farmhouse pizza special. More than enough for one person (took both home for some dinner), great taste and... More

I think Arturo's has the best pizza in New Jersey. (Although my favorite, Parma with gorgonzola, is no longer on the menu.) For pasta, try the wild mushroom ravioli. Sensational. The homemade sausage ragu on penne pasta is great too. There's often a long wait here because the place is very small, but it's worth it.

We finally stopped by Arturo's for dinner, and I'm glad we did. Nice ambiance, BYOB, fresh local ingredients. They don't take reservations, but the 15-20 minute wait was acceptable, especially after the hostess offered to get us started on our drinks. Pasta entrees include your choice of house of Caesar salad (both good), but no bread was offered to our... More
