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!

“Worth It”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

On a busy night we were able to get a table for two with no reservation - great! We did however get seated right where all the wait staff were busy going back and forth to the bar. The appetizer special was fabulous and the rest of the meal was good. All in all a good visit and we would definitely come back.

“My favorite restaurant on Marco Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Arturo's is my favorite restaurant on Marco Island for many years. It is an excellent Italian restaurant. The menu offers something for everyone and anything we have ever ordered over the years has been delicious. We go there with a family of 12 and everyone is always happy with their meal. I recommend the Chicken Florentine. They will also prepare a fresh, local fish filet Florentine style if you request it, and that is often my choice. If you have to pick one restaurant on your vacation to Marco, I highly recommend Arturo's. It is great food, great service, and a nice wine list, too. There is also outdoor seating available.

“Horrible and Over Priced!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

This will be my first review of a restaurant that I have ever written, but I needed to take the time to help you make a decision not to go there. First of all, it is for sure not a kids friendly environment!! Also my nephew who is 13 years old ordered pasta and asked for butter and garlic instead of tomato sauce that came with the pasta and the waiter told him he would have to charge us extra for butter and garlic. My husband ordered pasta with clams and thinking that we were in a true "italian" restaurant paying over 25.00 for pasta and clams that the clams would come in the shell, well were WRONG it was from a can. All I know is we enjoy good food and don't mind paying the price as long as it's worth it with good service. Well here it was bad service and the food was so poor!!!
