It is a small restaurant, quite nice. However, making a reservation does not guarantee you will get your table on time.

We were immediately seated at our table for 2 at 6:30 on Friday night along a wall shared with other couples at separate tables. Space is small but intimate/comfortable and noise level was acceptable but ramped up as it got full. Matt (head waiter/mgr?) was very pleasant, attentive, and professional. We had the burrata and prosciutto special starter, the entree special pan seared snapper with shrimp/mussels/pancetta/cannellini and the rigatoni from the menu with grilled chicken/mushrooms in a creamy red sauce. We had a reasonably priced 2017 Chianti Classico which held up well to all the food. We had no room left for dessert so were given two heaping tablespoons of creme brûlée to cleanse our palate. Everything was wonderful, will definitely return.

We went for NYE - wanted a new place with a different menu. When we arrived, they weren’t serving salads or desserts which was more than a bit disappointing on a special night out. The entrees were both delicious. The server was a pleasure. We did sit outside which is a great view of the strip mall parking lot so if you’re uncomfortable indoors still, then be aware. The indoors did look very nice though!

This is a Hidden Gem in Houston!!! Since you arrive, the attention to service and the food is outstanding. Felipe, our server, explained to us the menu, the specials and his suggestion! The Paella selection was amazing with big portions of mussels, shrimp and chorizo. The wine selection was large but with great Reginaldo selections of Spain. Finally the crema catalana was extraordinary with a mix of flavors and sweetness! Will come back 100%! Thanks

First timer. 4 guests. Apps (ceviche and fried calimari) were good, as expected at any higher end Italian place. Three pasta dishes which got good reviews. My choice was grilled salmon which I ordered “as the chef would cook it” (waiter said medium rare) but which was at least medium. Nothing special, flavor-wise.

Crime Brûlée was above average.

Prices seem somewhat high for what you get but this is COVID-time so it’s hard to guess the new normal.

Arturo’s is a culinary gem in between the Tanglewood and Memorial area, easy to find, that is very much like having a home cooked gourmet dinner at your favorite uncle’s. Arturo Boada’s menu is fantastic, but even better is his Chef’s Tasting that we always get and always surpasses our expectations. Wine selections are fantastic and service that makes you feel special every time. Bravo, Arturo!

Celebrating getting a new job. It was an amazing experience. The food may be the best my wife and I have ever had. I’m huge on Italian and she enjoys good fish. This place delivered. We can’t wait to go back and we have told many of our friends about this amazing gem. Nice and intimate environment for a great date night or personal celebration!

Dined with a friend and my husband, party of three. We had a veal ravioli as an appetizer. Was wonderful (1 each)
I had the Frutte de Mare, my husband had a red snapper special, and our friend had the ahi tuna with arugula. We all belonged to the clean plate club. Everything was wonderful. This was our second dining experience here. Did not disappoint again. Waiter Matt and manager Carmelo were very attentive, as well as other servers. This restaurant is a gem we are happy we found. Arturo did stop by our table and was happy to hear we loved the ravioli.

First time dining at Arturo Boada. Was a great dining experience. Food was outstanding. Arturo came to our table and checked to see how we liked our food. We ordered the Shrimp Pepperonicino. Was amazing. Served with bread/ sliced dinner rolls that are homemade. We ordered the Tijuana Cardini salad and split it. The pecorino dressing is lovely.
We also ordered Snapper Al Fresco. It was cooked perfectly, the fresh herbs and sauce were done so well. We know we have found a gem in the area we live and will be back. Parking can be an issue, they have valet service.
