“A Perfect NY Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

We shared 3 incredible entries and I still can't decide which I liked the best. My special, lemon sole was prepared with lots of flavor and very little butter to also make it a healthy choice. Service was attentive and the atmosphere was lovely.

“A Work of "Arte"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

The Arte Cafe on the Upper West Side is a wonderful neighborhood Italian restaurant. I have been there three times now and the food has always been delicious. I heartily recommend the Frutti de Mare pasta, the meatball appetizer, and the delicious Pizza Bianca. The wine list is fairly extensive and there are many good beers available. The service is friendly and attentive. The atmosphere would be great for dating or for just dining with friends. You will enjoy your time here.

“Great place good food, gets busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Great service and food. We went there at 5:30PM on a Saturday night. Service was excellent and everyone enjoted their food. Cocktails were spot on. We ate a leisurely meal and finished about 7 PM. It got real busy abot 6:30PM and the service slowed down as the staff was very busy. Cannot fault the place as there is no reason to keep a lot of staff for just a couple of hours. Just be patient and you will enjoy the place.

“Brunch was a work of Arte!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our brunch here. Waffle with whipped cream delicious and I sampled the french toast, also excellent. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals. The restaurant is very lovely and our service was excellent. Unrushed, pleasant environment.
