Artu is located on Prince Street and they have a sister location in Beacon Hill. Both offer similar menus - their appetizer of vegetable platter is yummy along with meatballs, pasta, and other dishes. Waitstaff is friendly and attentive.

We needed a good Italian restaurant that could accommodate 10 people on a Saturday night on the North side of Boston. We found that perfect place with Artu's! The food and atmosphere were just what we were looking for and the service was impeccable. One person in our group is allergic to garlic and they were able to make her... More

My friends and I recently dined at Artu. We made reservations and were seated pretty quickly after arriving. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is small, but very cozy. Our waitress was bubbly and efficient. The food was very tasty and the drinks were equally good! If you're in the North End of Boston, give Artu a try!!!

Very good antipasto of roasted vegetables followed by an excellent and unique pizza of prosciutto, fig and gorganzola. Very good service and a decent selection of wines by the glass topped off a great lunch. Very nice surroundings.

Unfortunately it was so salty I could not eat it. They suggested that I should change dishes which is a pity as that is a dish i really like. the replaced it with... More

Popped in here after our choice of restaurant said 2.5 hour wait! Nice bar area and restaurant minimalist and tastefully decorated. Panini were on soft rolls with tasty fillings. One of us had gnocchi and they were small and tasty. We had a glass of wine each and all the wines were really good. Toilets clean and well appointed.

Stored in between lunch and dinner times. Was seated right away and had a great server. He made lots of recommendations and we went with carbonara, pizza, meatballs, and salad. Everything was excellent! We will absolutely be back!!

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
