Description: Houston Best Neighborhood Restaurant in 2012! This vibrant gem is located off Voss Road at Del Monte. The neighborhood eatery serves up an eclectic blend of Italian, Spanish and Latin cuisine not to be missed. Try unique tapas like the camarones henesy en hamaca, mussels tomatillo, ceviche and many more. The wood burning-oven puts out authentic thin crust pizzas, with favorites such as the carnitas pizza. We offer a flavorful selection of fresh seafood and steaks. Our home made desserts are a must, from wood oven baked apple pastry to Arturo's famous creme brulee. The hand picked wine list offers a variety of boutique and exclusive wineries. We are very happy to accommodate any of your special requests.

“Great new addition to the west side!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

It is always a good thing when the owner is working in his own kitchen
creating the dishes and the family is working hard in the dining
room. We always feel good when we support a local independent
restaurant. Arturo makes it very easy to want to return again to his
intimate boutique restaurant, Arturo Boada Cuisine.

We really enjoyed the mussels in the tomatillo jalapeño cilantro sauce,
Mama Sonia's ravioli and the Frutti diMare. They were all outstanding.
My husband had the Filet and loved it. We enjoyed a fresh white wine
from Puglia for less than $30.00.
Perfect on a hot summer's day!

Thank you for making us feel right at home. Camillo is the best!

“Neighborhood gem with fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

On a small side street off of Voss lies this wonderful Italian restaurant. Julie greets you at the door and escorts you to a table that is served by some of the best waitstaff in town. The food is a wonderful mix of Italian and Latin American (reflecting Chef Arturo's heritage.) My favorites are mussels with cilantro and jalapeños, cabrito pizza, fish tacos (doesn't sound Italian yet, does it?), grilled veggies and snapper specials. For special occasions I'll get veal or steak.

In a city of amazing restaurants, this one is in my top 3.

“very good cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2011

We went for lunch last Sunday after reading some good reviews. From the outside, it does not appeal much (looks like a hasty makeover from a Chinese take-away), and honstly, it was quite deserted when we arrived, so the place looks a bit 'cold'>
But the good news is that the service was very nice, and the food is outright excellent.
I wish there were more places like this !

“Fresh italian home cuisine......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2011

Arturo Boada's new restaurant is awsome....! He has the best of his former restaurants, in a cozy ambiance and good service off Voss. From his delicious dipping oil to the delicious Camarones en Hamaca.....then the Whole Nine Yards or the Grilled Beef Salad, both fresh and savory....to Sonia's Raviolis....A1!!! Leave a little space for the wonderful Creme Brulee....served in spoons.....just a little sweet to end a delicious lunch or dinner. One good tip: Arturo opens on sundays....!
