The food was very tasty and the wine was delicious. I'm not a huge fan of Italian food but everything was really quite good. The server was exceptional and informative and was ready with his favorite recommendations. The atmosphere was very warm and romantic but a little loud. The restaurant is small but intimate and not squished feeling. There were... More

The restaurant competition in the north end is significant but I love Artu's Veal Parm; I planned a night in Boston just so I could return here for the same meal that I had 15 months ago. The food is excellent, the service is very good although rushed....high production. The restaurant is somewhat crowded and loud. All that said,,,,I will... More

We went to Artu as I had to fly out and would not be around for Valentines Day . It was a good choice. According to previous reviews I thought that it would be pricey. Although on the higher side, I would not consider it pricey. We shared two appetizers, the Caprese salad and the Eggplant Roulatini (If I could... More

Was there on a slow evening on a Sunday in January. Service was Great and the food was very Good. It was apparent that the head chef was probably not there as the dinner we ate was not up to what we are use to when eating. Guess everyone has an off day. Will return but not on Sunday's.

We had a lovely dinner here on a Tuesday night. Our server was friendly and was respectful of the fact that we were catching up and not in any hurry, She was great in suggesting appetizer to share as we were chatting and the burrata with tomato and pesto was terrific. I had the veal bracciole and my friend had... More

Went there after a concert at the Garden. Never been here before. Stumbled across it only because it was one of the few places open late night. Had a feeling it would be good when the greeter at the door, who seemed to be the manager/owner was a portly gent! What a gem! The fried calamari is to die for!... More

Well, let me 1st address any review that isn't complimentary, those fokks are either wrong or so picky they wouldn't be happy at the table with Jesus. Not only is the staff amazing from moment number 1, but the food surpassed all expectations. I even had a 7yr old who is VERY picky, they made her a chicken cutlet that... More

A friend and I were recommended to try this restaurant while in Boston yesterday. We decided to begin with the soup of the day - chicken soup with egg and spinach. It was terrible - absolutely no chicken flavor and it tasted like hot water with spinach floating around. Obviously we sent it back. My entree was Puttanesca pasta....i was... More

Went in on a recommendation for a late lunch- sent 2 things back to the kitchen... was very surprised at the blandness of the food, as if the ingredients came from a bargain warehouse. Our server was nice but some other waiter came out making up excuses... whatever they took it off the bill but you know they hated us... More

Walked in around 6:15 on a Saturday night and were surprisingly seated immediately. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and efficient. The meals came out quickly and all were excellent. Pricing was reasonable and they had a decent wine list. Although there was a backlog when we left, there was never any pressure on us to get out.

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
