Pappardelle is great, lasagna is great, brussels sprouts are terrific. Delivery was pretty quick - said 30 min and it was actually 40, so pretty close to accurate.

Their food is good but their delivery is incredibly slow. This is the third time I've ordered from them and been given a 30-45 minute delivery window, and each time it's taken over an hour. It's been an hour and 15 minutes this time and I'm still waiting for our food. I will never order from them again!

Beware of the lunch menu. This is the second time I've ordered something, only for it to arrive missing one or more key ingredients (burrata, shrimp etc). When I call they tell me that they've changes the menu and what I receive is actually how they serve it now... as though I should just somehow accept what they've given me. The food also went downhill for a while but they seem to have corrected the quality. When they do get it right, everything is always fresh and tasty. The biggest redeeming quality of this pleace is honestly the way they package for delivery with care. Sauces are separate and nothing is ever soggy. They are also very timely, but they really need to work on consistency.

Excellent and reliably good food. Love the fresh pastas, great salads and specials are usually very good. Not a cheap option, but well worth it.

Awful customer service. Not to mention ALL THEIR PIZZA IS INDIVIDUAL. How is one supposed to know? Great question. Also the pizza sucks.

I've been ordering from Arte for a few years, and delivery has always been consistent. I usually get a salad or two, a pizza, and an entree. One or two times a pizza has arrived cold, but every other time nothing was wrong with my orders.

This is my first review on seamless. My two friends and I placed our order at 4pm. We sat outside our building to wait for the delivery. At 5:15we were told our food was on the way. We called again at 6 and were told the food had been delivered. We told them we had been waiting for two hours outside the building. The woman said there was nothing she could do and to call back later...

I often order form Arte Cafe and the service is friendly and fast and it is always a safe option. I know I will get the same quality when they deliver as when I eat at the restaurant. So definitely one of my favourites on seamless.

I wrote a bad review of Arte a year ago or so ("Okay food. Appallingly slow delivery. The pizza isn't bad. The crostini is one of the most disgusting things I've ever ordered - burnt slabs of bread literally drowning in smelly melted cheese. It was a puddle of melted cheese - I had to look for the bread pieces.")
But now I've changed my mind. The delivery is fast and courteous. And the pizza is completely divine, namely the buffalina pizza with buffala mozzarella cheese and a light tomato sauce, arugula, and large Parmesan shavings. The crust is thin but still pleasantly chewy and the perfect consistency. I've really come to like this place and it's my go-to delivery pizza.
EDIT, months later: Never mind. I ordered a pizza and I've been waiting for 1 hour 20 minutes. I live four blocks away (just can't leave the apartment). Does it really take 80 minutes and counting to delivery something four blocks away?

I order from here often as well as dine at the restaurant. Delivery comes quickly (I am admittedly very close).

OMG crazy delivery. Its an hour after i ordered, called them they put me on hold and went to find out what happened, then someone else took over the phone and said to call in 2 minutes, then finally another person said that the manager said it was out for delivery...after 60 min. I will not order again as time really matters for me. Not waiting food for an hour.

I'm Italian and had a very good Siciliana Rigatoni, I even couldn't eat it right at the time they delivered and still after 15minutes was still warm and good.
I'll order again.

Great value for breakfast and high quality. The delivery came before it was estimated.
Posted 3 years ago by David W.
Pizza tasted good, but only after being scraped off the box. It was a total mess when it arrived, with all the pieces over each other. I suspect the delivery boy simply dropped the box before delivery. Won't be ordering from them again

We only ever get the pizza and a salad from this place, but it is honestly our favorite pizza in the UWS - Maybe even the city! We only live a few blocks from here too, so our order always arrives promptly and hot!

Too bad the delivery service is so sporadic. Today, August 1, 2013, on a rainy day in NYC, I ordered lunch at 2pm. The order arrived within 30 or 40 minutes, the food was delicious (cappelini primavera and their wonderful pear salad ($1 extra for lunch). TODAY ARTE WAS PERFECTION.

The food is okay but the manager. hostess and kitchen is retarded. (If you eat there the service is just as bad, upper west sider's you know what I mean. Continue to order from here at your peril. You'll eventually get screwed like me.....
Posted 3 years ago by Nyle D.
its like they say about the definition of crazy, continuing the same behavior and expecting a different result. I don't know why I continue to order from here. Customer service is an absolute zero and the food is maybe a 5 or 6. And, oh by the way, it takes forever. Today I reached my limit. Never again.

Their food is good, but an hour an a half when the delivery time is listed as 25-40 is beyond unacceptable.

The food was barely edible and I threw out most of it. Will never order from here again.

Way overpriced. I don't mind paying good money for good food but I do mind paying good money for this food.
Posted 3 years ago by Alex V.
Arte is one of the finer Italian options on the UWS - Homemade pastas (cooked properly), fresh quality ingredients, healthy proportion sizes. All my deliveries have been timely and they consistently stock the orders with bread, oil, parmesan, napkins, etc.
The Fettuccine Boscaiola is one of my favorite seamless orders. All of their pizzas are quality as well. It is a pit pricey but definitely worth it.

personal note: ehh.. prosciutto pizza not really good, didn't try pepperoni, chix parm edible but not great, but pasta part of it had promise, nice fresh'ish tomatoes

Spinach and goat cheese omelette is good but was completely cold because the delivery took a while. Bacon is fantastic.

After reading other reviews I was nervous about the delivery time, but I know the restaurant and decided to go for it. I placed my order at 7.44pm and it was at my door by 8.05. I live 9 blocks from it. The chicken Parm as always was great, the spinach too. my only complaint was the meatballs, the sauce was really good but the meat balls themselves were so so. However I would order again.

I ordered from here specifically because it said 25-40 minutes, and I was hungry--after an hour, I called, and was informed that my food was on its way. After another thirty minutes, I called again and was told that they had no idea what had happened with my order. Would never order from here again.

Used to like this restaurant but they brought me infected food last week. Stayed 2 days at home to recover.
Their kitchen's cleanliness leaves much to be desired. Already noticed that in the past when having lunch there but I didn't really pay attention at that time. Not everything makes sense.

food was ok tasting. food was sloppy, and sides were carelessly thrown into the meal, in the smallest proportions.

Super high quality food -- not "delivery quality" stuff ... omelets are fluffy, tasty and well-made. Can't go wrong!

I've eaten at this place a few times and have always enjoyed the food. This was my first time ordering take out. It was not a good experience. The driver got lost, and kept calling me to tell me he was outside my building, when he was 3 blocks away. When he eventually got here the pasta was luke warm, the salad was also luke warm, but the bread was amazing as always. It's a shame that their take out is so poor compared to when you actually eat in the place. I shall not be ordering from them again.

Excellent for Pasta. Portions are larger than they used to be.

The delivery service was terrible - we placed our order at 9pm and did not receive our food until 10:30pm -- after four calls to the restaurant, the third and fourth with the manager. Each time we were told it was on the way when it obviously was not. Our delivery slip showed that the order was placed at 9pm -- evidently the food was sitting for a long time because our pizza and pasta were ice cold when the food was finally delivered. Given that, it's difficult to actually rate the food - it did not reheat well.

Delicious food. I've ordered 3 times in the last month and I haven't been disappointed. The veal is super tender, the chicken stuffed with prosciutto, spinach and cheese is amazing! My only critique is their sauteed spinach could have more flavor. Other than that, I will continue to be a fan :)

terrible service, took 2 hours and no food had to cancel order.

the pizza was good (margherita), the greek salad was okay, the apple tarte was okay, the vanilla gelato was yummy, the chocolate mousse was okay - super sweet

Food was average at best - a rating of one star would be more than generous for this spot. Food took 1 hour 12 mins to get to me and was luke warm - very disappointing indeed.
Posted 6 years ago by Georgina L.
The food is consistantly good, but I have found that the special requests portion of the order is not read. Most recent order was over 30 minutes past the estimated delivery time.

I really like the food at Arte Cafe. I used to order from them once a week and then I finally realized it was just too much of a bother. Like the other reviewers their biggest problem is they take 75 mins minimum to deliver meals. I live 2 blocks away so I call and want to go pick up my order, it still takes 60 mins to get a rare piece of salmon seared for less than 10 mins. I made a mistake and ordered pizza a couple of times with a pasta or an order of salmon. Bad idea. The pizza is ready way before the fish. They get delivered at the same time and the pizza is like a piece of cardboard with cheese. So in summary. Good fish. Good pasta. Horrible delivery logistics. Not very good management.

Food finally came more then an 1 hr late...pizza was cold had to cook it in the oven....called them to complain nobody answered the phone...grt biz model
Posted 7 years ago by Steffen K.
The food is good at the restaurant but their delivery service is completely unreliable. Although frequently quoted at 30-45 minutes, expect delivery in no less than 1 hour...and often times much longer. Food always arrives cold. When you call to check status, they make excuses and further underestimate time. Totally frustrating. I try them every few months to see if they improve the delivery service (since I like the restaurant), but never gets better. Avoid.
Posted 7 years ago by David M.
Only one star since I never even got the food. After 45 minutes they called to say that my dish wasn't available and it would take another 1.25 hours to get my delivery. Then I cancelled my order. Never again.
Posted 7 years ago by Denis W.
Orders always take at least 50 minutes to arrive and have been wrong 3 times in a row. Don't think I'll be giving them a 4th chance. The menu descriptions on here are wrong, so don't be surprised if you get something completely different than what you thought your ordered...oh, and it will be probably cold.
Posted 7 years ago by Hannah L.
2 hours 20 minutes (yup) for a delivery just over 150 feet away.
Think we must have the record. Four phone calls met with sympathy but no food. Frustrating as they are such nice people and their sit down restaurant is so good

The chicken burger was bland and tasteless. The bun was stale. What a disappointment!
However, I also ordered the ravioli with vodka sauce. It was quite tasty and very fresh.

Seriously??? I just ordered the beet salad which I've ordered several times before. There are 3 tomatoes, 2 beets and 2 onions in a salad that used to have 3 TIMES as much. And the price is the same $9.00. I will NEVER order from Arte again. Clearly they have little respect for existing customers if portion size has decreased this much. Shame on you!
Posted 7 years ago by Nissa R.
this is the second time they have delivered the wrong order to me. I will not give them a third chance to screw it up again
