I have been to this restaurant many times over the years. It has always been known for the best pizza around. Perhaps it was just a bad night but the pizza and antipasta was just not as good as in the past.

This is Italian food at its best. It Amy not be the cheapest, but it is some of the best food in Watertown. You can't go wrong with the pizza and the drinks. My favorite pizza in this one horse town.

We try to stay away from chains and like to go to places where the locals eat and Art's Jug met this requirement and we weren't disappointed. It has it's own parking lot and great Italian food... I had shrimp scampi and it was great, my wife had fresh flounder which we can't get at home.

Upon arriving at our hotel we inquired as to to best place to eat given our preferences for that evening ( good food and reasonably priced). They suggested Art's Jug if we wanted really more upscale than their first recommendation and we reserve which they did on our behalf. We arrived worried that we were five minutes late due to...

We ordered the Sunday pizza special and an order of garlic knots. What we received was burnt food and terrible customer service. The garlic knots were well beyond golden brown. I'd call them more of a dark brown. The box they came in still smells burnt. The plate one sat on smells burnt. There are what may be specks of... More

After a circular pizza was cut so poorly that about 1.5" was missing from the crust to the center and the garlic knots were burnt I called the store. Instead of pleasant customer service the management were defensive even though we had pictures of the poorly prepared food. I was told I'd have to bring back a half eaten burnt... More

Throwback Italian! It's not too fancy or expensive. They offer nightly specials and the pizza was great.

Met another couple for dinner early on a Saturday night and already had a good crowd. We were seated and served cold beverages right away as we waited for friends. The Italian food was great and recommend it.

We arrived about 5:30 with previous reservations for nine. After being warmly welcomed, we were seated and updated on the specials of the day. Our drinks were ordered and arrived very quickly. Our waitress was a pro and took our orders, even verifying with the chef as one in our group had dietary restrictions due to food allergy. Sometimes a... More
