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!

It seemed strange to go to an Italian restaurant in a location famous for its seafood, but I'm glad we did ... and I think we had the best seafood dishes at Arturo's. I had salmon and my daughter had a shrimp dish and both were excellent! Arturo's also has a great happy hour in addition to the wonderful food. Will go again!

“Waste of time, waste of money...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2009

We just got back from Arturo's wish I had gone back to Davinci's. I had the veal piccata and my wife had the gnocchi napalitano. The veal was bitter and over done the side of penne pasta with marinara the penne was cooked well but the marinara was bitter and without flavor. I tried my wife's gnocchi it tasted like eating bits of sponge. The caesar salad tasted like bottled dressing. My balsamic gorgonzola dressing tasted bottled as well. Bottom line avoid this place you have been warned

“Good Italian food on Marco Island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2009

Our family of 5 had dinner at Arturo's on our current trip. It was recommended by the local whose house we are renting. Very nice restaurant. Food was very good. My kids loved the gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce and fought over the left overs. The Caesar salad dressing is clearly from a bottle and left a lot to be desired. The fresh bread was an unexpected, delightful touch. The fish and chicken (marsala) the adults had was very good. Nice wine list. Pricey, but we knew that going in. We called in a carry out order for more gnocchi another night.

“good place to dine on Marco”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2009

The restaurant serves good food. Reservations are a must, if you want a specific time. I have two things that I was not satisfied with. The wine list is very pricey with bottles marked up to 3 times their local retail price. Wine by the glass is way overpriced (minimum of $9.00.) the house wine at $6.50 is fair. There is also a charge of $1.75 for gorgonzola salad dressing which is not worth it.
They have a takeout menu with a 25% discount which is a very good value.
