"High scores on the crust for both taste and texture. The char was just right. My only qualm was over the use of chopped clams. ... That said, a squeeze of lemon made the whole pie sing.

The restaurant's original Brooklyn location was forced to close last week because of structural problems with its building.
"It’s fried rice with salted fish, egg and scallions. It’s pretty simple, but the combination of flavors works very nicely together. The only knock on it is that it’s not as fluffy as it should be, but it is still quite tasty overall.

"Had a luscious fresh strawberry, yellow cake and whipped cream birthday cake specially made at Artuso's and it was delicious!" – dorah on Artuso Pastry in the Bronx
