My wife and I and our son and his wife had dinner at Artu's on Prince Street in the North End on Friday evening. My wife and I have eaten lunch here a number of times but this was our first dinner meal. We were able to make reservations on the Open Table website for 7:00 p.m. As we arrived,... More

Was in the area trying to get a table elsewhere...the place around the corner everyone queues for. In the pouring rain we spotted this place and took shelter. Turned out to be absolutely fantastic. We had some drinks at the bar and shared the scallop appetiser. Two excellent plates of pasta followed. Excellent quality fresh food with great service. Thanks... More

We discovered Artu's by ordering their take-out subs. The subs were game-changers for us. As I recall, we had the roast pork and eggplant. I've yet to have a sub that tasted like gourmet food. Of course, we began going for dinner, and the food remains excellent. It's a bit crowded and a bit loud, like anywhere in the North... More

Stopped in here for a dinner on a Sunday night after a recommendation in the forums. Didn't have to wait for a seat which was a plus since our first choice had a 1 1/2 hr wait. The decor is quaint with nice low level lighting. Our waitor explained the menu and the specials and sold us on a Veal... More

While strolling down the street we happened to look down a side street and saw this place came in for cocktails and small plates. Had scallops and squash blossom stuffed with ricotta delish! The scallops were tender and so tasty! So glad we came here!

Love the eggplant and pasta dish with calamari. Moderately priced, good service, and the tables are not packed so close as in other North End restaurants

We have eaten in the North End many times and have a few favorites, for which we always make reservations. This time we took a chance and wandered in o the North End, by foot, with no reservations, and on a very busy Saturday night (Labor Day weekend, great weather). Stumbled across Artu, which we didn't know and were fortunate... More

Consistent with some prior reviews, which I should have read in advance, we were disappointed with Artu on Charles St. Things got off to a bad start when we were seated next to a table of four very loud people. I had the "Artu" which was tomatos with smoked mozzarella and red peppers. The tomatos weren't quite ripe and were... More

Our waiter wasn't very friendly, then another waitress recognized our friend who lives around the corner, suddenly our service was better, our food arrived soon.
