Carmelo was just a busboy at the time in the once, Log Cabin Pizzeria located on Route 6 in Mahopac, when Artie came in and opened the doors to Arturo’s Pine Tavern. Originally from the Bronx and once Chef at the famous Frankie & Johnnie’s Pine Tavern, Artie created a menu of traditional Italian favorites, along with the famous “Arturo’s Salad and Arthur Avenue Bread,” served in what Artie called his “mother’s” salad dressing – red wine vinegar and olive oil.
Fast forward now, to 2016. Carmelo has now been the owner of Arturo’s Tavern for the last 11 years. Keeping its authentic Italian Menu, Carmelo has added a multitude of his own mom’s recipes for Daily Specials and Specialty Italian Desserts.
If you are looking for fast food, this is not the place for you. Each dish is crafted with taste and love of food in mind. Good food takes preparation, and our Chef refuses to send out a morsel of food until it’s rendered to perfection!
Along with the food, Arturo’s is well known for its over-sized Martini Menu. Mixing up over 40 “Signature” Martinis on a daily basis, customers enjoy a wide variety of what we call here… “Tasty Beverages!”
Whether it is lunch or dinner, outgoing or a great party you have in mind, Arturo’s has you covered. Come see for yourself why this place has become a family favorite in this town for the last 19 years!
