Arturo's good for pizza and ONLY pizza

Billy | Jan 4, 2006 12:49 PM

A very dissapointing recent visit confirmed for me what others have been telling me for quite some time now, that the only thing to order at Arturo's on West Houston Street is pizza. I recently dined there with my Dad and we were both very disppointed with the pasta and veal dishes we ordered. The veal was way overcooked and much too chewy. The pasta was also over cooked—considerably worse that ordinary. Also, I hate to mention the fact that the plates we were given to eat on had dried food still sticking to it from inadequate dish washing. Yuck. ..and major tude as well when bringing the dirty plate issue to the attention of the waitress. Oh well. Sadly, I've crossed that place off my list for dinner after dining there for years, although I'd still go back for a pizza and the great entertainment offered there. I just won't brag about it to others anymore and keep my fingers crossed hoping that the pizza will be ok and the plates clean.
