We found it! Ciao Bella captures everything we loved about Arturo’s! Great service,white table cloth dining, Gorgonzola salad dressing, stuffed pork chop, fine wines. This definitely is a must visit in Marco.

Very nice and helpful wait staff. The atmosphere was quite and relaxing. The best part of the meal was the squash and gorgonzola soup. I would definitely recommend this to anyone

My family has been visiting Marco Island almost annually since 1984. Over the years, we have visited most of the restaurants on the Island, and we have a “rota” of our favored five that we visit every time we are here. Creatures of habit? I plead guilty. But we need our Marco “fix” and a dose of Snook Inn every year or two.

We have visited the original Arturo’s twice in the past, but it has never risen to “rota” status. DaVinci’s holds the slot for fine Italian, Joey’s for casual Italian and pizza. But, this time we noted Arturo’s had closed and that a new candidate, Ciao Bella, was now on the radar screen. So, after reading the many favorable reviews on TripAdvisor, we gave it a go.

As soon as the waitress informed us that the house specialty was a “stuffed pork chop”, we realized this is Arturo’s in a new location, under a new banner. It is unimpressive outside, but surprisingly nice in the dining area. Sadly, the kitchen falls into the “less than stellar” category—good, just not great. We ordered four dishes—Chicken Sorrentino, Linguini Carbonara, Meat Ravioli and Lasagna, plus a couple of meatballs on the side. The meatballs were excellent, the Ravioli smallish in portion but quite good, but the other three dishes were just north of perfunctory, at best. The service was excellent, and the staff are gracious, but overall this seemed to us to be no improvement over the original Arturo’s.

DaVinci’s spot in the “rota” is secure.

Very good Italian food. They have a wonderful wait staff. The bar is large and well stocked. They have a gentleman that entertains a few days a week who sings a lot of Sinatra songs. Enjoyed our time so much we went back the next week.
