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!

This is one of our favorite resturants on Marco Island. They also do carry out and if you call before 6pm you get a 20 or 25 percent discount

“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Did not have a reservation, but they accommodated us on the patio. Food was some of the best we've had at any Italian restaurant. Spaghetti and meatballs seems ordinary but not at this restaurant! Delicious. Service was a little scattered, but I think they were short-handed. Easy to understand their Zagat recognition.

“No surprises!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Arturo's is just ok. We go there when were bored with all the other restaurants. This restaurant has no atmosphere and gives you the felling that they are just trying to fill the tables. They are across the street from two major hotels and get a lot of business from them. I think the restaurants motto should be "MOVE EM IN, MOVE EM OUT". Please let me clarify something, a restaurant needs more than just decor to create an atmosphere. The people working there are also responsible for the atmosphere. This is something they are lacking, their servers give you the impression that this is just a job for them.

“Out Door Dining Italian Style”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

This is the 2nd time we've dined here. First time was outdoor seating too. Loved the food. When we decided to eat Italian on our next trip to Marco we looked at all the Italian options but Arturo's was the only one with a patio. So we skipped all the others and had yet another fantastic meal. They even made a special pasta sauce for my husband that wasn't on the menu!!

“Dining Experience”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

The food was absolutely terrific however the service left a lot to be desired and the seating was very cramped. We were seated on time for our reservation , the table beside us came about 15 minutes after us and an hour later they were eating and we were still awaiting our entrees. When I mentioned this to the waiter, he said our food order was put in at the time we ordered which was within 5 minutes of us being seated at a very small table for 2 in the middle of the restaurant. He said he'd check again on the food and mention it to the manager. The food came in about 10 minutes and it was great. Then the waiter came by to tell us, the manager had said he was to busy to speak with us but should offer us a dessert on the house, we didn't want a dessert and we will not plan to go back unless it's for their take out, which we saw they also offered if you ordered by 5:30 and picked up by 6 PM.
