Arta restaurant Ratings and Reviews

It has gotten a bit expensive for us to dine their regularly. Too many specials that are spoken, then the written ones and then the regular menu. Plus, if you are claiming that you use organic, grass fed, etc ingredients you should tell us where they come from. Anyone can make that claim!

excellent service, water glass filled bread basket and butter replaced as needed, fresh cutlery replaced at each course, fresh napkin as needed. Did not wait long for menu, specials description and service of the food. Menu was good and food was pleasantly presented.
Appetizer choice for the table of 6 persons was excellent included hot and cold sections.
Branzino Fish with real crab stuffing was excellent.
Desert selection included tasty gallato and great tortoni
There was adequate space on the table for the food.
Would recommend to friends, but it may be a little pricey for some, about $60 person but the quality of food and service were worth it.

Gazpacho soup was good, we had an array of dishes for a large group and all of them were amazing, tender and cooked to perfection, including the lamb. I service was impeccable, they would swoop in take care of filling a glass or taking a dish away and wouldn't interrupt conversations or inconvenience us. This is a wonderful gem and we had a better time than anticipated which speaks volumes for the people who work there!

The online lunch menu was not available and was missed. The restaurant was empty except for our table and while that increased the quality of the service, it greatly reduced the quality of the ambiance. I would not recommend this restaurant for lunch.

We were recommended by another couple we had met at the inn we were staying at. We were greeted very warmly as soon as we walked into the restaurant and the staff was very attentive to our needs. The food was great although a little pricey, but we were willing to pay it as it was to celebrate my husband's birthday. Dessert was the best!
Get the homemade pasta!
We always enjoy our meals at Arta. The veal and fish dishes are always well prepared and delicious. I don't typically order pasta out because it seems too simple for a dinner out. But the last 2 times we've gone, I've ordered the homemade pasta specials at Arta. Both times, they've been so delicious! The sauces have been so tasty and creative and the pasta is cooked perfectly. So I recommend eating at Arta. Everything I've ever gotten there has been very good. But today I am definitely recommending the pasta! Also, service is always attentive.

Wow. Big surprise. Restaurant staff very professional and attentive to the floor. Constant motion to provide for patrons.
Food creative in presentation and taste.
Appetizers of salmon tower and asparagus Napolitiano proved to be delightful choices.
Fish specials of John Dory and Norwegian salmon from page to plate were delicious.
Crepe dessert prepared tableside exceptional. Price slightly high for area but restaurant delivered.
Worth the effort and expense.
Modify amount of choices to decrease cost.

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.
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!
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.
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!
