Arta restaurant Ratings and Reviews

We were recommended by a friend. It was our first time there, but it won't be our last. Had a wonderful quiet, relaxing and delicious meal. The service was friendly, professional and attentive. My Bronzino was very fresh, my husband enjoyed his homemade ravioli in a very nice sauce. Our flambé dessert was prepared table side by a very lovely server who listened to our special request of separating the bananas for me and the berries for my husband. The home made whipped cream presented in an aerator was a great touch. A definite new place for us to put in our restaurant rotation.

I took my Mom here for lunch they day before Mother's Day. Everything was top notch. the food, the presentation of the food, the service level of the staff, etc. It is a bit pricey so I would not recommend for just a dinner out.
Excellent food, if a little pricey
Prices are closer to what you might expect in or around the city ($15+/- apps, $25+/- entrees, $35+/- specials), but the food quality is outstanding. Great seafood options (I got branzino with crab meet, along with two crab-stuffed shrimp and a side of risotta), food comes out piping hot. Desserts are excellent. Highly recommend Arta for anyone looking for a nice small restaurant with excellent food and service.

Great Hidden Gem
Excellent Service from the moment we walked through the door! The food was delicious and was presented beautifully - my 2nd time and it was just as memorable as the 1st time. I brought an additional two people with me and the 4 of us all raved about the entrees and desserts - The burrata was absolutely wonderful and a must have - fresh Italian cheese made with mozzarella and cream - just yummy
Nice Find with One Caveat
My caveat would be a big deal to me if not for everything else. Wive and kid's food were great. My salad was good but there was something odd about the chicken. I wasn't horrible tasting but it was very dense -- almost like meat that gets microwaved. Dunno if it was or wasn't. Would give it another try since two of the three meals were so good.

We were greeted at the door and the service was great from the moment we arrived. We love the cozy little piano bar. Our dinner was great, the lobster bisque was delicious, the seafood risotto a bit starchy, but the veal dish and the pasta special were very good. We ended with the best cappuccino I've had in a long time and a rich carrot cake. If you are looking for a special dinner, with 5 star service, this is the place. We look forward to our next visit.
Delicious homemade pasta!
The homemade pasta (bucatini) was delicious!! It was cooked to perfection. The bolognese was fantastic. I could have licked the plate! We always enjoy our meals at Arta, but this one was the best one yet. I was also really pleased to see the restaurant so filled. We usually dine there during the week and see a lot of empty tables, but every table was filled on this Saturday night.

The service was impeccable....friendly, engaging...but non-intrusive. Sony provided the best service I have ever had .An unbelievably awesome food experience that meets every expectation. All around terrific. Thank you.
Always a very enjoyable experience. Food is always first rate and service is very attentive without being overbearing. A little pricey but still a great time.
So worth the drive, a hidden gem!
I was looking for a four star romantic restaurant to take my girlfriend on Christmas, and all our usual go-to places were closed, so I searched and found Arta. What a find! Everything from the food to the service to the ambience and decor were A+. Already we can't wait to go back.

My boyfriend and I came in to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. We sat at a quiet table in the wine cellar. It was romantic and intimate. The food and service were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a high quality fine dining experience.
what a fabulous find!
what a wonderful surprise! i'd searched for a great place to eat; i wanted great food, great ambiance, great service, basically great everything! i found that ARTA! no complaints. when my son showed up late (we were a party of 4, and only three of us showed up before the kitchen was set to close.....) they were wonderful about waiting for him to arrive. our mouths watered; the service was perfect and not overdone, and the establishment was perfect. I have already made plans to go back and touted them to everyone I know! Bravo!

Excellent from the host , service,and food. Thank you for a wonderful birthday.
This place is AMAZING
Always great but tonight was even better than usual. Quiet when we arrived, but we got there earlier than our reservation so went ahead and sat. Service is impeccable, food was absolutely fantastic. Short ribs for me, wife got the homemade raviolis which she loved. Nice measured service reminded me of being in Europe. Each course was followed with time to sit and chat. No rushing at all. Finished with a few desserts to sample, all fantastic. Nothing more to say, great food, great service. This place is a winner every time.

Excellent service and very good food - also a nice selection of house wines by the glass. I had the lobster ravioli, and it was delicious. The sauce definitely stole the show, though - lobster lovers might prefer a tail special if they have it.

Top notch Italian . Thank you for a great wine and delicious is osso buco... and great service ..
Good food but inconsistent service
Our server was providing fair service, but then we noticed a table for 4 next to us was getting "extra attention" from another waiter that we did not receive--for example, mentioning the specials, describing wines that would pair well with their meals, more frequent visits to their table, etc. While the food was excellent, it was disheartening to see the stark difference in service.
Reliably good food and friendly service
When we first started dining at Arta, the wait staff made numerous visits to the table, which in theory is nice, but in practical terms, felt like too many interruptions. We have dined there several times now and have seen a very nice improvement in the service. The staff is warm and gracious - they always have been! And now we feel like we have a bit more private time together at the table without so many interruptions. Thank you! The food is delicious. We almost always order the specials. This time we had a burrata and fig appetizer that was delightful and delicious butternut squash raviolis, which were actually an appetizer that they made into dinner portions for us. We've been telling everyone we know about this local gem in Ringwood!
Always a favorite
Dinner was fabulous. Service was impeccable. When you have dinner here you always feel welcomed and special. See you soon.

Great food, not cheap but worth it. Probably the best service I've ever received. Will be back.
A Neighborhood Gem!
We are always completely satisfied with our experience when dining at Arta Restaurant. The ambiance is perfect, the food is delicious, and the staff is extremely attentive and yet not so much so that you feel hovered over for the evening. We love to share a meal and a memory at Arta any chance we get! Conveniently located in our hometown, it makes that needed night out so much more enjoyable. Highly recommended...
Top Shelf Italian
Everything on the menu is spectacular....most specials are unique with their own fabulous flair…….Great service .A must for those who appreciate fine dinning the Italian way.
QUAINT QUIET PLACE TO WINE AND DINE
SERVICE WAS EXCEPTIONAL FOOD WAS FRESH AND DELICIOUS THE RESTUARNT IS SMALL BUT VERY QUIET SO YOU CAN HAVE GOOD CONVERSATION. BANANNA FLAMBE FOR DESERT WAS JUST FABULOUS, HOST ROMEO WAS VERY PERSONABLE AND MADE SURE WE WERE COMFORTABLE AND HAD WHAT WE NEEDED . THROUGHLY ENJOYED EVEYTHING ABOUT THIS RESTAURANT.
Always great . Always Consistent . They remember your name what you drink . Great food , service is wonderful.
Great dining experience.
This is the second time I've been to Arat. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. The recommendations of our server were right on. It was the perfect place for a celebration.
Arta's is a true gem in the mountains of NJ
If you want a truly relaxed dinner in the traditional Italian style, you must try this place. It is well known to all the locals for the place to celebrate any special occasion or for a romantic dinner. The food rivals experiences that I had while traveling thru Italy. The atmosphere is warm and the wait staff is very attentive. Romeo, the owner, will be sure to stop by and ensure everything is up to your expectations and usually offer you and after dinner drink. Enjoy!
Good food, better management and a good bet
The food was good, not great. The service was OK, but the management was great. The selection of food and wine was maybe a little too big, but there's something for everyone. Concentration on a smaller menu would lead to even better quality food. But the key to this place, is that in a neighborhood that is like a dessert of anything decent to eat and this place becomes a gem.
WHAT A SURPRISE !
MY HUSBAND AND I ARE FOODIES. WE SAW ARTA'S ON OPEN TABLE , A LITTLE OUT OF OUR DRIVING RANGE BUT WE DECIDED TO GO. OUR RIDE WAS ABOUT 1/2 HOUR IN THE RAIN. WELL IT WAS SO WORTH THE TRIP. WE WERE SAT IMMEDIATELY AND FROM THEN ON OUT IS WAS A GREAT DINING EXPERIENCE. THE ATMOSPHERE WAS PLEASING, DIM BUT NOT TOO DARK, COUPLES & GROUPS WERE ALL ENJOYING THEMSELVES, EATING & DRINKING, YET NOT DISTURBING, WONDERFUL. WE WERE SO EXCITED WITH THE WINE MENU AS THE OFFERINGS WERE NOT OVER THE TOP PRICED AS YOU SEE AT SOME PLACES. OK THE FOOD !!! WE ORDERED OCTOPUS, ESCARGOT TO START. OUT THEY CAME, PLATED AS THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN WITH ATTENTION TO DETAIL, THESE APPETIZERS WERE COOKED TO PERFECTION AND MOUTHWATERING. THE ENTREES' WE ORDERED WERE BOTH CHICKEN DISHES, NOT OUR NORMAL FAIRE ,BUT THEY READ SO DELICIOUS THAT WE HAD TO TRY THEM. THESE ENTREES' DID NOT DISAPPOINT. THEY WERE PLATED PERFECTLY AND TASTED THE SAME. WOW WHAT S DINNER ! AS FAR AS THE SERVICE, THE STAFF WERE VERY ATTENTIVE AND HELPFUL. WE CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK. A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. OH YEAH, THE CHEESECAKE WAS TO DIE FOR !!!!
We've been coming here for over 7 years . This is by far our favorite place to eat for a nice date night. The food here is fantastic. It's all fresh and always delicious. The restaurant is very clean and has such a nice ambiance. The owners and wait staff remember you and treat you like an old friend. They are also very good with special requests. We are always told that if it's not on the menu it doesn't matter, they will make it for you.
Excellent Food, a Real Gem
My husband and I recently moved to Ringwood, and we wanted to go out to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Arta came highly recommended from "Ringwood Moms" group on Facebook. And, now we know why! The ambiance is romantic, quaint, and relaxed. You feel so comfortable why enjoying artful gourmet food that is simply delicious when you bit into it! The service is impeccable. I highly recommend Arta. I will be going back.

This restaurant was absolutely superb, from start to finish. The service was imoeccable, the ambiance was beautiful and the food was amongst the best I've ever had locally. I would highly recommend Arta and will definitely be returning!
Italian dining at its best
We were in the area and was recommended to Arta by a friend. Very glad we decided to go for an early dinner. Nice atmosphere very good service, nice friendly staff. We shared a salad, delicious. My husband had a pasta dish, I opted for chicken rollatini. Both were great. You will not be disappointed. Will go back again.
This is by far THE best Italian restaurant in the area. Service and food are excellent. Portions are a nice size. The waiters are very friendly and provide great service. The atmosphere is elegant and comfortable. I highly recommend it.

Perfect Mother's Day dinner! From beginning to end, the staff was attentive. Starter of sausage and broccoli rabe was yummy. The sea bass wrapped in prosciutto was delectable, and the risotto with scallops and shrimp were to die for! Top all of that off with great dessert and cappuccino and it equals perfection. Great hidden gem!
