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.

Just stopped in on a cold and misty-rain evening for a drink. Cozy and welcoming little spot down a little side street in the north end among the Italian restaurants. Wendy was waiting bar and she made us the best dirty martini and vodka mule my wife and I have ever had. Some local guys at the other end of... More

Went with a party of 9. The staff was friendly, service was good and overall the food was good. The Calamari & Mussels appetizers were good, Had the Gnocchi Al Forno, Melanzane Parm, Ravioli, Bolognese, etc. No complaints about anything with the exception of the Linguini and Clam sauce, it wasn't bad but other nearby restaurants are better for this...

The dinner of veal parmigiana with side pasta coupled with a lovely chianti was very tasty in the Little Italy section of Boston. My wife enjoyed a lasagna that was also very well done, but disappointed that the short rib ravioli listed on the menu was unavailable. No complaints from our friend who found her fussili with sausage and broccoli... More

Artu is located on Prince Street and they have a sister location in Beacon Hill. Both offer similar menus - their appetizer of vegetable platter is yummy along with meatballs, pasta, and other dishes. Waitstaff is friendly and attentive.

We needed a good Italian restaurant that could accommodate 10 people on a Saturday night on the North side of Boston. We found that perfect place with Artu's! The food and atmosphere were just what we were looking for and the service was impeccable. One person in our group is allergic to garlic and they were able to make her... More

My friends and I recently dined at Artu. We made reservations and were seated pretty quickly after arriving. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is small, but very cozy. Our waitress was bubbly and efficient. The food was very tasty and the drinks were equally good! If you're in the North End of Boston, give Artu a try!!!

Very good antipasto of roasted vegetables followed by an excellent and unique pizza of prosciutto, fig and gorganzola. Very good service and a decent selection of wines by the glass topped off a great lunch. Very nice surroundings.

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.
