Description: Houston Best Neighborhood Restaurant in 2012! This vibrant gem is located...
Houston Best Neighborhood Restaurant in 2012! This vibrant gem is located off Voss Road at Del Monte. The neighborhood eatery serves up an eclectic blend of Italian, Spanish and Latin cuisine not to be missed. Try unique tapas like the camarones henesy en hamaca, mussels tomatillo, ceviche and many more. The wood burning-oven puts out authentic thin crust pizzas, with favorites such as the carnitas pizza. We offer a flavorful selection of fresh seafood and steaks. Our home made desserts are a must, from wood oven baked apple pastry to Arturo's famous creme brulee. The hand picked wine list offers a variety of boutique and exclusive wineries. We are very happy to accommodate any of your special requests.

We are very slow in discovering this gem. Actually a place with great food- and quiet enough that you can talk to the people at the table with you--This is getting hard to find anywhere. Service and food were terrific. We will be back.

Location is in a somewhat seedy strip center but the interior of the restaurant is first class. Excellent food and service. Chef takes great care to ensure customers are satisfied. We will return.

Arturo's food and atmosphere is unexpected in this tucked away strip mall location. The food is some of the best I've experienced in Houston, and the intimate setting makes you feel like you are a guest in your dear friend's dining room.

My wife and I and three other couples recently began a once a month Supper Club. It was my turn to pick and I had to pick a restaurant that began with the letter "A". Thanks to Trip Advisor and a little research, I chose Arturo Boada's. It proved to be a wonderful choice! We started off with their cheese... More

Several years ago, our son, while a student at the Culinary Institute of America, had an opportunity to work with Arturo Boada at the James Beard Awards Dinner in NYC. Recently, while in Houston, our son recommended that we dine at Arturo's restaurant. We had lunch one day and went back for dinner the next. Everything we ordered was distinctly... More

First of all don't judge this book by its cover. When you pull up in front of this establishment your may question your choice but don't worry. Once you open the door and come in you will immediately realize that you are in the right place. I would describe this establishment as casual yet refined. In other words you won't... More

Love the intimate atmosphere. The seafood is always prepared just right, never over cooked. The seasonings lend a complimentary touch, never overpowering.

This was our first time at Arturo Boada, even though we live nearby. We were delighted with the food and service at lunch. Cuisine was carefully prepared, presented and delicious. Servers were considerate and respectful. We can't wait to try some more of the items on their interesting menu.
