l ast night was a horrible stormy, windy and rainy evening. Fernandina Beach had no electricity and dinner became a real dilema for me and my family. Most places could not serve due to the electric shortage. Our concierge at the hotel suggested we should try a nice small restaurant called ARTE PIZZA which happened to have electricity and was serving. So we decided to try it as we had very little choice. It was 8:00 pm when we arrived. It was pooring and windy. People were waiting on line to get in. Lucky enough 10 minutes later we were able to get a table for 6.
The place is not fancy, mostly a cosy family restaurant. The waiters were most friendly and pleasant. Because it was the first time we were having dinner there, they suggested to try a variety of dishes such as the Mac & Cheese with Shrimp an Jalapenos, Some Gniocchi , the house salad and 3 different pizzas. This dinner was incredible and a most wonderful surprise.
The cost of the dinner was also incredible. we will certainly be back.

A great hole in the wall joint with simply outstanding pizza. The ingredients are incredibly fresh and the pizza is cooked perfectly. If you're in Fernandina or Amelia don't miss it.

Just a special little place. Always on our list. You can just feel the homemade atmosphere. The food, all of it, is always good. We always bring out own wine so can't say much about the selection. Our recent party ot 8 had a great time sharing pizzas and hanging out in the outside seating. Special little place.

UNBELIEVABLE!!! I lived in Italy for two years and Arte's Pizza is the best pizza I've had since I was in Italy. Complements to Tonino and his wonder welcoming staff. Even on our first visit, (we were there for only the weekend and ate at Arte's twice), we felt as if we were visiting best friends and favorite family members.

EVERYONE at Arte Pizza strives to make you feel welcome. The happiness and smiles you get from the staff is genuine. It is very evident that they like working there and whether they mean to show it or not, their happiness is visible.

Aside from loving the people and atmosphere, the food is the real reason for going there. It's FANTASTIC!!! If you don't get the cannoli, you'll have wasted your trip there. There isn't a better way to end a fantastic meal than to eat their great cannoli.

We hadn't thought about going to Amelia Island more than this one visit and we're already looking forward to going back just so we can eat at Arte Pizza.
