Opened in 1982, Arturo's is one of the few remaining "real deal" old-fashioned Italian Restaurants on the Upper East Side. The simple decor, complete with exposed red brick and wood-board floors, lets diners understand that it's all about the food here. House specials, such as the Seafood Combination - Lobster Tail, calamari, clams, mussels and scallops - is served over a bed of linguini in a spicy marinara sauce. Also highly recommended is the Veal Chop Voldostano, which is stuff with prosciutto and mozzarella, and sauteed with Marsala Wine and mushrooms. All desserts are made on the premise here, as Joseph is quick to attest to the fresh Italian cheesecake - a favorite among regulars and newcomers alike. An extensive wine list consists mainly of Italian labels.
