Our Story

Arties is a favorite for both locals and visitors who relish the restaurant’s casual classic Mediterranean feel. Customers enjoy a spirited setting at the cocktail lounge recognized for its grand copper lamps hanging overhead. Join the friendly crowd and experience our fantastic selection of wines by the glass or one of our famous jumbo martinis. 


Spiros and his team dazzle customers daily with beautifully prepared contemporary dishes. Arties prepares traditional Italian specialties as well as fresh seafood and great steaks and chops. 


Our goal is to offer the highest quality and freshest locally sourced ingredients.

We are continually looking ahead for new and creative food trends.


It has been a pleasure to not only serve our community but also become a part of it.
