    Sit at the bar and wait for a free table in the front room with the jazz musicians. Get a large 16" pizza and throw some additional toppings on there. Don't forget to leave a message in the bathroom!

    Music, friendly family staff, the food is amazing. Sure the pizza is fabulous, but do be sure to venture into their gourmet menu. These folks live and love food. Arturo's is my favorite NY restaurant.

    Get a large pizza, it's well worth the extra price and loss of table space. Live music here too, which is nice but it does increase the sound level making it seem more older-crowd rowdy than it is.

    Totally underrated coal oven thin-crust pepperoni & mushroom pies in an old school 1957 NYC pizza joint. Get here early (before 4:30pm) on Fri & Sat's to avoid a wait & enjoy the live jazz.

    The pizza menu here is straightforward. But to us, Arturo's has always been about meeting up with friends and not thinking too hard about the pies, all while you enjoy each other's company.

    Super cozy. On a cold day, sit at the bar, split the meatball pizza and a carafe of red wine, and enjoy the sweet sound of the live jazz band! Really lovely surprise to stumble into.

    Come for the food and stay for the music. The pizza is delicious (the sauce is unbelievable) but the Tortellini en Brodo is perfect, just like my mother makes it.

    One of the world's best pizzas in one of the coolest settings. And live music to boot! I've been coming hear since I was a kid and I don't plan on stopping.

    Dim lit, mafiaesque small restaurant. Live jazz music. Prices on menu are wrong. All large pizzas went up $5. The pizza is tasty.

    a nice sit down place with live-music. Pizza is fine but nothing to really write home about, crust can taste a bit burnt. Fantastic atmosphere and very reasonable prices though, great for an outing.

    Order the house red by the carafe, the simple arugula salad and a pie. Sit outside on a hot summer night, or arrive late on Monday nights for secret performances by jazz greats.

    excellente coal oven pizza (get it with sausage) and arugula/parmesan salads. you must sit in the front room for a 1960s-style NYC pizzeria experience.

    Best pizza in NYC; it's a coal oven. House wine is great. Garlic cheesy bread is a must. Live jazz nightly. Leave a note on the chalkboard in the bathroom.

    Arturo's is one of the best places to grab a pie in New York--2nd in my book only to DiFara's in Brooklyn. Nice live music on some nights, too!

    Obviously the pizza is good. Eat it. But a large should be split 3 ways, not 2, or else you will be fat and slow and probably miss your train.

    ehh...I guess it's cool to have a wide variety (ranging from $4-$15) of topping choices. I like my pizza to taste like pizza though and the fresh tomato sauce was the only thing that really stood out

    Terrible take out pizza for $25. Paid extra for meatballs & it looked like they thinly shaved one meatball and threw it on. The box it came in might have tasted better. Walk further to Kestes
