The best pizza and pasta in Maplewood and the surrounding towns. But be prepared to wait. Wait times on the weekend can be long and orders for takeout on Fridays especially can require a call at lunchtime. You won't regret it given the food, though no one likes thinking that far ahead.

One of the best pizza I have enjoyed and I am not a pizza lover. I normally eat pizza about four to six times per year, but since my friends who are locals took my husband and I to Arturos, we can´t wait to go when we visit. Unfortunately, the place is too small, the wait is too long and... More

I've eaten here so many times I can't believe I've never left a review! This is a local treasure, delicious, inventive food in a casual setting in charming downtown Maplewood NJ. The salads, pastas, and pizza are all made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. The owner/chef, Dan Richer, was nominated for a James Beard Rising Star award a few years ago.... More

Stumbled in Arturo's for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Absolutely one of the best pizzas I've ever eaten. So good, I had to return the following day. I was not disappointed, the ravioli was superb, service is good if not great and the delivery of food is within standards. Yes, it's possible you'll wait but they were able to seat... More

You'll love Arturo's: pastas, salads, meat. Pizza to die for. Recently they've donated 10 percent of their profits to the ACLU.

Arturo's makes excellent, genuine brick oven cooked pizza in many flavors. The only drawback is that it's so popular that it's hard to get in and is always crowded.

Really good pizzas and pastas and they're into the farm to table thing (unlike most who eat this type of food I might add!) but all of their "diner-unfriendly" rules keep me from eating here much: No reservations. No calling ahead to ask how long the line is (if you do, they always give the exact reply like " there... More

Fantastic as always. Staff are courteous and efficient. Food is always outstanding- fresh, simple, very high quality and often locally sourced. Fortunate to have this place nearby.

Delicious food and one of the few places that have a liquor license. Always busy and hard to get in though. Filled with families! Not if you want a quiet romantic dinner.

Hands down -- the best pizza ever. For years, people would talk about the pizza at Arturo's. I would see the lines outside and thought no pizza is worth waiting for. Well, I was wrong. This summer my husband and I would eat there several times a week. While it is was still light outside and the weather was nice,... More
