Signature cuisine

Arturo’s Bistro (formerly Island Cafe)

Formerly known as Island Cafe, Arturo’s Bistro is owned by Arturo Perez and has been serving Marco Island locals and visitors incredible Italian food for more than three decades. The restaurant is highlighted by its quaint and cozy environment with small and intimate tables draped with linen tablecloths.

Arturo’s Bistro closes on Monday during the summer months but remains open seven days a week throughout the rest of the year. Dinner is served as of 5:00 p.m.


Guests have many options to choose from the European-inspired menu. Entree choices are divided into four sections: pasta, poultry, meat, and seafood — all of which includes locally sourced produce. All entrees include a house salad or soup of the day. The wine list includes a handful of bottles from multiple regions along with several options by the glass. Browse their extensive
menu here.


Dessert options include Key Lime Pie, Ice Cream Sundaes, and multiple cheesecakes. Three Port options are available for those who prefer a digestif instead.


The level of service is described by guests as attentive and professional and serves are extremely knowledgeable. The chefs have decades of experience which is evident in the creative presentation style of each dish.


All items on the menu are available for take-out and the restaurant offers a 20% discount for orders to go. This is a great deal since dinner on your lanai at sunset can be the best ambience in town.


Arturo’s Bistro is located at 918 N Collier Blvd on Marco Island in sunny southwest Florida. It’s convenient to all of Marco Island’s hotels, right in the middle of the main business district on the island. Enjoy shopping and other great restaurants like Ciao Bella here as well.

The Sun King’s Review of Arturo’s Bistro

The Sun King loves seafood. Arturo’s does not disappoint. The Grouper Island Style is always cooked perfectly and super-tasty. The Sun Queen usually goes for the Fettucini Alfredo. We love the quaint atmosphere of this small, cozy bistro but sometimes the Sun King doesn’t feel like leaving the castle. The 20% discount for carryout orders makes Arturo’s a no-brainer for a fun night in your vacation rental.
