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 used to be great a few years ago. Pasta was to die for and the sauce was very special. Loved it with their special meatballs and penne. Then about four years Arturo's dropped off the map! No advertising not on TV, radio, newspapers. Then I found it closed odd hours and for months at a time. This past month a sign says it's gone for good. a shame such great food but totally forgotten. New comers to the island say they never have heard of it.

We enjoy this place to have a good meal The service is very good. We had chicken Parmesan and the snapper special. Both were delicious. For desert we had tiramisu which is divine. The place is so friendly and serves great food which keeps us as repeat customers

As we walked in we were greeted by owner Judy. Wonderful lady. Gives us great table by the bar.Judy was very friendly and we ordered drinks and got to know all about the restaurant. Been there over 25 years. You know the food is good if it has been around that long. All seven different appetizers. Mixed them up a bit each one was better than the next third bottle of wine Going Down Smooth. We share the meals on the table five different meals stuffed pork chops veal couple of fish dishes everything was delicious. Had a great time joking around with owner she was able to put up with Five Guys in New York tough lady but funny I had a bottle of wine on the house will be back in July
