Old fasioned, authentic Italian food since 1982

About us

Opened in 1982, Arturo's is one of the few remaining authentic, old-fashioned Italian Restaurants on the Upper East Side. Chef and owner Joseph Napolitano, who took over the business started by and named after his father, is proud to offer to his dedicated clientele a "no frills" dining experience. The food at Arturo's has hints of influence from the old Italian neighborhoods in New York City and traditions that are long forgotten by many of today's more trendy Italian eateries.


The simple decor, complete with exposed brick and wood-board floors, lets diners understand that it's all about the food here. House specials, such as the Seafood Combination-Lobster Tail, calamari, clams, mussels and scallops-is served over a bed of linguini in a spicy marinara sauce.

Also highly recommended is the Veal Chop Voldostano, which is stuffed with prosciutto and mozzarella, and sauteed with Marsala Wine and mushrooms.

Arturo's is outstanding. The service is over the top good. While I literally had my overwater filled after nearly every sip, the food is something to rave about.

Have been going here since I was 8 years old!! Joey is fantastic and the service has been always the best. For traditional Italian dishes and great specials you can't beat Arturo's!

I love this place! It is a true local neighborhood restaurant. For me this is the ultimate in homey, comfortable Italian food and atmosphere.
