Description: At Arturo's Ristorante Italiano, we have crafted a perfect menu and a comfortable, friendly atmosphere to match our beautiful Marco Island, FL setting. Our atmosphere offers casual elegance in the comfort of an Italian home in our charming eatery where all of our guests, new and repeat, are treated not merely as old friends, but as family. Ask any of our local and seasonal visitors and they'll tell you, we've earned the love of their hearts and their palettes! Earning numerous awards including the Zagat Award of Excellence 2012, Wine Spectator 2012, and AAA Approved Diamond Rated in 2013, we continue to excel in all things delicious and decadent. While you're here, try one of our seasonal specials or an old favorite. Our stuffed pork chop has been called "the single best dish ever created." Made with boneless pork loin, it is stuffed full of proscuitto and mozzarella cheese, and finished off with a mushroom marsala wine sauce. We also offer delicious seafood, beef, and poultry entrees as well as a full array of appetizers, pastas, and desserts. Try the Penne alla Vodka featuring our housemade sauce, expertly crafted with fresh tomatoes, vodka, and cream. Don't forget to top your meal off with our crowd pleasing key lime pie! We also feature a full bar and an excellent wine list to pair with your amazing meal. Consider us for your next dinner out - your tastebuds will thank you!

Our "large" group enjoyed everything from fried calamari to veal, eggplant and a variety of pastas. While it took some time to serve everyone, we enjoyed the home made focaccia and steady beverage service. The cannoli and tiramisu were excellent. We never miss a stop at Arturo's when in the area and we will return!!

So from the outside, this place may look like locals avoid it. I was wrong. The food, wine ahend service are exceptional. The waiter's recommendation was spot-on! I had the veal topped with prosciutto, in-laws had the osobucco and wife enjoyed gnocchi. All three were home runs! The wine selection had detailed tasting notes and I spent 15 mins perusing several options.

The experienced exceeded the amount rendered to my credit card and look forward to returning on my next trip!

The restaurant decor is a little dated but our waiter was pleasant. My friend got the homemade sausage and peppers which she said was very good. I got the gorgonzola gnocchi and a house salad with their house dressing. The gnocchi was average and the house dressing was delicious but very salty. The bread was good, soft and warm for dipping in olive oil. The meal was average and we enjoyed ourselves. I would not brag about this one but I also wouldn't complain. It reminded me of old Italian restaurants when I was a kid, so that's okay. They did have 20% off the entire bill on Wed. and lots of people were getting take out, that was a nice plus to the Arturo experience.

Arturo's is amazing. Food is out of this world. We come here every year when we make our yearly trip to Marco Island. We frequently eat Italian food and this is one of the best we have had. The Eggplant rolletini and their famous pork chop are guaranteed to please!

We went to Arturo's on the last night of our stay after having been to some pretty amazing restaurants over the week. It did not disappoint! Upon arrival, the wait staff was extremely friendly. They start you off with bread and oil which was delicious. We also had the fried mozzarella as an appetizer. Also delicious! Then for our meals we had the chicken parmigiana and the veal francais. We both agreed that both dishes were out of this world! Please check out Arturo's and don't let the slightly dated exterior disuade you. The interior atmosphere is perfect!

Side tip: Try to make a reservation if you can. If not, you will still be accomodated but you may have to sit at a table in the bar area. This was perfectly fine for us - we actually prefered it!
