Took my parents and in-laws
Took my parents and in-laws to Tucci as a thank you dinner and everyone was very impressed! The ambiance of the restaurant is wonderful, the service was outstanding and the food was delicious. My only complaint is that the prices are pretty high for what you get. My pasta dish was tasty but $33 is alot to pay for a bowl of pasta. I would hope at that price that at least a salad or soup would be included. The steep prices might be because of being located in the heart of Lake Oswego but still seems pretty high. That being said, it was still a great dining experience!

Highly recommend. Food was prepared to perfection. I had the very best spaghetti carbonara I have ever had. I highly recommend the crab bruchetta. My wife enjoyed the mahi mahi special. Wine list is strong. Our waiter was very knowlegeable about the wine and food. Also enjoyed at our table were the filet medallions and chicken marsalla. Again, everything was prepared and presented perfectly. Only odd moment was at the end of the meal, we ordered a dessert to go because we needed to get home (shared this with waiter) The dessert was brought to our table nicely wrapped, and then he dissappered. Eventually had to wave someone down to get our bill. It was just a poor finish to what was a great evening and a great meal.

After seeing an interview
After seeing an interview on AM Northwest I decided to give this place a try. From the moment I walked through the door they treated me like they cared. The food was outstanding!
The customer service was top notch and the seatting was very comfortable. The place had a feel more like a small neighborhood bistro rather than an expensive restaurant. While Tucci's can be spendy, it can also be very reasonable. The prices were very comparable to any other restaurant. I highly recommend this to all foodies!!

My husband's dinner was not
My husband's dinner was not up to his expectations, but the others were very good (we all had comething different). The wine I had was excellent and I am not a wine expert thus am very critical.

Tuccis is still one of my favorite places for dinner! I took my Mom there for her birthday. We both had delicious pasta dinners. I had a hard time selecting an entree ... there were so many great choices.
4/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Over the past 15 years, my husband and I love the consistent wonderful quality of food and atmosphere. Tucci's adds succulent huge green olives stuffed with Gorgonzola to their martinis. Their wine list is extensive, and our waiter was skilled in helping us choose. I love the crab bruschetta for an appetizer! Plenty for two to share one order. Tucci's filet mignon so tender it melts in my mouth, and is always cooked to a perfect medium rare. Yum! My husband often orders the evening pasta special and smiles as he devours his dinner. Delicious! Our other favorites are their scallops and any of the pasta dishes. Tucci's is special because of the lovely owner, Suzie. She works hard to make sure everything is perfect! Excellent!

Always accommodating, always fresh & best indgredients put together by amazing chefs and served by a friendly and efficient people who do their jobs very efficiently and happily. I've never had a bad meal and quite likely I won't.

We have never had a bad meal at Tucci's. We were celebrating our birthdays over the weekend and the veal special was divine.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a lovely meal. The ambience is very nice. The risotto and duck was wonderful. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The warm, gooey polenta chocolate cake with vanilla gelato was a melt-in-the-mouth delight of rich chocolate. Worth the trip just for the dessert.

Tucci has been one of our favorite local restaurants. We enjoy sitting at the dining bar (they refer to it as the panini bar) that looks into the kitchen area because we enjoy watching the skilled chefs prepare the many extraordinary dishes. The cooks are often engaging when they are less busy. The steak is delicious. I don't often eat steak, so I prefer a smaller cut that is more expertly prepared when I do actually order it. The restaurant experience is superb! The flavors and dining service are terrific. The management seems engaged and committed to diners having a special experience. You really will enjoy this restaurant, the service, the menu, and the food. A Lake Oswego gem.

I came for the fresh made pasta and sauce. Enjoyed the food very much and
will come back and give tell others to go there.

Tucci First Brunch
We had a quiet, relaxed brunch here on Sunday with good food and good service. The frittatas were nicely portioned, fresh and carefully made. The eggs were not overcooked as frittattas often are. The coffee was good and they even met my high standards for cappuccino. No hectic lines or frantic staff. It was peaceful enough that you could have a conversation around the table and they let us linger. It was terrific.

I don't have enough good things
I don't have enough good things to say about Tucci. The inside is amazing. Perfect. It's so classy and yet I feel comfortable in jeans there. The hosts are always so on point and they represent the restaurant with class and flare. The food and drinks are delicious. And happy hour is a great treat! The menu is just full of deliciousness. And don't even get me started on their Tiramisu. I just love this place!

Really nice ambience and kind, attentive servers. I would certainly suggest it for group get togethers or just lunch.

High quality, high price
Each of the four of us ordered something different. All of us would rate the food as excellent. Our waitress had only been on the job about a week and wasn't really up on all the details but she was very pleasant and was able to answer all our questions, eventually.
The location is great but real estate in downtown LO is expensive and we knew prices wouldn't be low. However, it seemed a little pricier than it had to be. We'll come back for special occasions but probably won't make it a regular dine-out spot.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful spot for a recent gathering of a three old friends. The menu offers enough choices to please everyone. Courses appeared at a leisurely pas, as requested, so we had ample time to chat & enjoy our wine. Would recommend Tuccis for Happy Hour, Drinks at the Bar or a fine dinner.

Great spot for a quiet lunch
Went here with my girlfriend for lunch. Service was excellent as was the food. Very peaceful. I imagine it gets more social during dinner due to the restaurant setup. Very relaxed setting. Thanks!

Anniversary at Tucci
It was amazing as always. Thanks to Gregg and his staff. They are the best.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once we got our meal, it was great!
Several of us enjoyed Tucci's happy hour, so we decided to try their Sunday brunch. The only snag was that our food sat ready in the pass for about 10-15 minutes while our waiter (apparently the only one on duty) handled some other customers at the front. We finally had to go ask him to serve it to us, and he was very apologetic and attentive going forward. And, we all agreed that the food was worth waiting for: the Crab Frittata, Veggie Benedict and Biscuits with Sausage Gravy were all outstanding. We left feeling good about our meal and the restaurant, and will be back.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
great dinner spot
had a nice dinner here, the homemade pasta was delicious, the halibut cheek special was delicious. Wait staff were a bit negligent on a very quiet night. Would have been nice to offer a taste of the wine we were unsure of. The waitress was a bit clueless

I love this restaurant, always good service, great bar and the food is consistently creative and great
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wished I lived in Lake Oswego so I could make this my neighborhood, eat-at-every-week restaurant. Good food, wine and service. Nice atmosphere-- feels like a neighborhood restablishment but upscale and sophisticated at the same time. Next time, i am asking for a table on the cute patio.

The service was exceptional and the food was fabulous. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I took a client out to lunch at Tucci, and we both loved it--the wine and the food. I had an open-faced panini with dungeness crab. WOW was it ever delicious!

Fun, yet elegant dining
This was my first visit to Tucci, though I've seen and driven by it dozens of times. Since we had an out of town guest, we decided to take our whole family there. We went on a Sunday evening in the summer, so the inside was mostly empty as most guests opted to dine outside in the warmth of an August evening. Overall, I thought the food was well prepared and presented and aside from too much balsamic dressing on the house salad, I wouldn't have much of a complaint at all. Service was fine - nothing extraordinary, nothing deficient. The ambience was nice for a date night or special occasion locale. As for value, I thought for the location it was decent - a little on the pricier side for the quality of the food, but nothing out of hand.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed a long lunch with a close friend. We were both very impressed with the service; felt like we had the staff all to ourselves. The food were all fresh, prepared /seasoned perfectly and presented beautifully. The wine selection and pricing were also great. A perfect experience. My only regret is I do not live close enough to frequent this terrific Tucci Ristorani.

It's a favorite for quite a while. Food, service and ambiance wonderful. I do recommend Tucci's .

Good Food! Cheap wine pour
My wife and I dined here for the first time on a recommendation from a friend. The food was very good and a nice atmosphere. The wine pour is chincey. I will not return for that reason also, the waiter seemed to have a bit of an attitude since we didn't want appetizers or desert. (can't run up the tip that way) . Also, this is a small restaurant , no place for noisy children.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
A wonderful time was had by all!
There were seven of us and we all tried different things and everything was good.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good from begining to end
We dine at Tucci's consistently, but this past Friday was a special occassion for a handful of family members. The dining experience was exceptional. Great food well presented coupled with reasonable wine selections. We were, as always, appreciative of the warm and engaging staff and the quality of the meals was uniformily excellent.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and staff here are wonderful. The special of the night was halibut and it was exceptional. It was accompanied by baked polenta and topped with a blend of shallots and aragula. The presentation of the food was lovely. Our waitress was very pleasant and provided great service. The decor in the restaurant is very pleasing to the eye. Our dining reservation was early (5:30pm) so the restaurant was not too busy and therefore quiet. I will definitely come back here for any special occasion dinner.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our favorite places
Beautiful place, great ambience, friendly and attentive service. Deck is nice during the summer. Open kitchen can be entertaining. The scallops are consistently excellent.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything we had was very, very good. The cabbage roll was exceptional as was the lamb ragu. It was our first time but it certainly will not be our last.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
i heard so much about this restaurant and I was disappointed in the quality of food. I had a salad and the waiter never offered bread before or during the meal. My lunch companion ordered one of the pasta dishes and did not enjoy it very much.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Scrumptious dinner for 4 adults, well prepared and tasty gnocchi, rissotto, cabbage rolls and seafood special (sea perch)
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took a change & tried Tucci's (it was our first visit). Hadn't read their website properly as NO breakfast is served Saturdays; only on Sundays. But our lunch was terrific, our table by the front window quiet and each dish exceeded our expectations. We 'traded' bites and found each selection rewarded our palette with a HIGH YUM FACTOR!
We'll definitely return... this time, probably on a Sunday for their brunch menu.

Three couples went to Tucci's before going to the Lakewood Theatre. We were all extremely pleased with the inviting atmosphere of the restaurant and the excellent wait staff. Our waiter was helpful, friendly and efficient without hovering over us. I had one of their special martinis with limoncello; it was terrific. I had checked online beforehand and read that the cabbage rolls were excellent. Although there were many items on the menu that I could have ordered, I did choose the cabbage rolls. They were delicious!! I was the only one who did not order dessert, but all who did were delighted that they did!! I will be most eager to return to Tucci's in the future.

Another enjoyable meal at Tucci's
My husband and I had brunch at Tucci's recently (on a Sunday). We enjoyed our meals but for some reason, when the chef finished the entree & set them under the warmer, they sat there for quite a few minutes. We could see the 'action' from where we were sitting. Anyway, by the time my eggs benedict was delivered, one of the 2 eggs was no longer soft and had to be returned/redone. Had to flag down a different waiter to get it taken care of but when it was delivered, it was - as usual - great.
We love the quiet ambiance as well as the finessed spices & flavors in their food. A definite gem in our book.
