We were in the neighbourhood looking for a place to eat and decided to give it a try. I guess I was imagining it's like in Italy: not too expensive and the food is good. Well, it wasn't meant to be. Only the aperitif was Italian, to say so. As I liked it, I ordered a bottle of Sangiovese, instead of a second glass. Wrong decision as the main course was an awful disappointment. The veal stuffed with prosciutto was too sour. My daughter had gnocchi and didn't like it. We travelled to Italy this year and know trattoria is not really fine dining, still you can always find something tasty. Not the case of this one. We were a family of four and NONE of us liked the food there. The waitress came to see us at the end and inquired if I wanted to take away the food we barely tasted. What a joke! The bill was $180, and although the waitress noticed we were not satisfied with the food, she offered no discount or something. We had a reservation for next evening at Mistral, and decided not to go there at all as my trust in European style cuisine suffered a serious blow, so instead we went to Legal Sea Food, and were very happy with that decision.

Artu, Artu, what happened to you? After visiting Boston as a tourist more than 10 years ago, I was brought to Artu by a friend and fell in love with it. I remember thinking, if this is how all of Boston is, then I will really love this place. Well, it's been a long time since then, and while I have been to the North End location and think it's amazing, the Beacon Hill location is now anything but. I felt like I was walking into a dingy old diner. The menu online has options that are not on their printed menu in the restaurant. So while I had worked myself up for an amazing dinner, it did not exist. They offered to make me a version of it, but in the end, it was pretty gross and so not worth the very expensive price. The bread was not great, and while the service was fine, the experience as a whole was very underwhelming. I hope they figure out what's not working and fix it, because this place USED to be incredible!

Disappointing! Nice menu but did not live up to expectations and the service was rushed.

Great experience, Betty was an awesome waitress, food was delicious. Cold beer, after a long day of walking in extreme heat, nice ceasar salad, home made pasta dishses, reasonable prices, good wine. Might go back before leaving Boston.

Great Italian food in a cozy atmosphere. The restaurant now has a bar on the first floor and dining room overlooking Prince St. on the second. My favorite dishes to note are the bruschetta, calamari and Orecchiette e Gamberi e Broccoli Rabe. And absolutely check out the summer drink menu--great list of refreshing, original concoctions.
