Arturo's Uptown Italiano

1180 Uptown Park Blvd. Houston, TX 77056 | Galleria | 713-621-1180

Location Description:

Arturo's offers self-described upscale Italian cuisine in a lavishly decorated space near the Galleria. The large patio is a favorite when the weather is cooperative, filling up with people enjoying both hot food and antipasti and ordering from Arturo's wine list, which features both Italian and non-Italian wines. At both lunch and dinner, Arturo's homemade pastas are among diners' favorites, from chicken-and-mushroom-stuffed ravioli to pappardelle with Bolognese. Traditional meat dishes like veal saltimbocca and chicken Milanese are available, along with a seafood special that varies daily. For dessert, the restaurant recommends its tiramisu, which they say Arturo makes himself daily.
