Fantastic (limited) menu, but all items (pizzas, pastas, etc) prepared with care and perfection. Strongly advise visiting this restaurant. Dine in and take-out only, no delivery, and no alcohol. Wonderful, awesome food. I only wish I lived across the street.

My kids fell in love with the pizza immediately and no other wood-fired pizza can compete. Small local hangout, amazing food.

My friends are regulars at Arturo's and they took my girlfriend and I here for a pleasant lunch. The breakfast-style pizza I enjoyed was great, as was the crostini. Would go again.

I think it's not that type of place. It's worth your while to go there and have it fresh. I came from out of town.
