I can always rely on Tomaso's for authentic, quality Italian dishes.

Our dinner was fabulous at Tomaso's. Our waiter was excellent and offered great dining suggestions. The dish I enjoyed was not on the menu but created by the chef - absolutely delicious!

Tomaso's food was excellent,
Tomaso's food was excellent, the wine list expansive and the service attentive.
Special attention was given to a member of the party who required a gluten-free dining experience. The only issue I would be comment on was tat oone membner of our party did noty receive his entree with the rest of us and had to wait almost ten minutes for his didh to arrive. However, the host did make up for that by buying the table a round of after-dinner drinks.

We were visiting Phoenix and in the mood for Italian. Tomaso's had good reviews on Trip Advisor so we gave it a try. The food was great. The portions were large so none of us finished a plate. The owner came by to greet us and our server (Geraldo) was awesome. We walked away with satisfied appetites and a pleasant dining experience.

A special neighborhood restaurant with a special feel to it - a bit of "old world" yet not too flashy - "subdued" might be the word . Food is above average for sure - never a disapointment.Parking is a bit tough during busy times - come prepared to valet park (easily done )This restaurant is something special .

Traveled to Phoenix for Spring
Traveled to Phoenix for Spring Training and found this wonderful place on Open Table. Just could not believe how great it was. The menu was outstanding and the flavors of all six of our meals could not have been better. Saw three sport icons that were there dining and none of them were together. Must say something special about this gem. Make sure to add it to your list!!!! You will have a tough time trying to top the food.

This was our first visit and it was amazing. Our waiter was phenomenal. He put us at ease and made sure we were well attended to the entire evening. Definitely going back again. Our meals were perfect and the deserts were divine!! The waiter made sure I got a scoop of pistachio gelato with my cannoli when I couldn't decide!! Yum!!

Great for Mother's Day
Took Mom and the family and she loved it. Pork Chop was good but deep fried, so couldnt eat that too often. I had the rigatoni bolognese which was quite yummy.

Tomaso's was great...again!
My wife and I have been enjoying this restaurant for perhaps 35 years. It never disappoints.

Wonderful restaurant. Delicious entrees. Well prepared. I highly recommend it.

Best Gnocchi ever!
I took my husband here for his birthday and I am so glad I did. The food was excellent, the service was wonderful, and everyone treated us like we were regulars, even though it was our first time there. His mother is from former Yugoslavia and makes very good homeade gnocchi. He said it was the best he had ever had - I had it as well and it just melted in my mouth it was so good! We have been to Italy and I am not kidding when I say the food was better at Tomaso's than when I ate in Italy. I booked through Open Table and told them it was my husband's birthday and they gave him tiramisu and sang to him. The waiter was attentive but my favorite part about him was his quit wit! We really enjoyed our waiter.

Our Red Hat group had lunch recently and it was a total winner! Lovely setting, accommodating wait staff, and the food was found delicious by all! Thank you so much for making things so easy, from reservations to the final unexpected treat. Howdivine

We've vacationed in Phoenix
We've vacationed in Phoenix for the past four years and have passed by, but never stopped in, Tomaso's until our most recent trip. Very glad we decided to have dinner here. Excellent food -- absolutely wonderful spaghetti and meatballs -- and the service great. Dessert was a bit disappointing -- had to send back the creme brulee as it was more soup-like than creamy -- but that won't stop us from eating here on our next visit to Phoenix. Highly recommend Tomaso's.

Overall Very Good
I personally like meatballs to be made from beef . Tomaso uses beef pork and lamb which gives it a different flavor

there is no doubt that Chef
there is no doubt that Chef Lorenzo at Tomaso's is the best Italian chef in the Phoenix area.

You Name It
I had a problem selecting an entree so the waiter let me make it up. Loved it!

Mid-Town Classic Romance
This is one of those restaurants we always said "we need to try that" when we drove by. I have lived in Phoenix all my life and had heard great things about Tomaso's starting in the late 70's when they opened. Somehow it never happened until this year on our 33rd wedding anniversary. The husband made the reservations and we finally got to the restaurant - a LOCAL restaurant - we had always wanted to try. We were greeted by the hostess who had our table ready and wished us a happy anniversary. Our waiter was outstanding and attentive. We had a fantastic meals of tasty pasta, wine and bread. The lemon cocktails and dessert "on the house" made our meal memorable. It was a wonderful night and an anniversary we will certainly remember.

Made a reservation here for myself and two work colleagues. Food was excellent. My Osso Buco was very tender and just pulled away from the bone with a fork. Drinks on the more pricy side, but thats most of the Phoenix restaurants. Overall, good Italian food, casual/upscale atmosphere, and excellent serive. I'd recommend this location for a business dinner.

Tomaso's - Va Bene!
We recently hosted a group of business partners at Tomaso's and I was amazed at the level of service and attention given to our group. The food was amazing and tasted wonderful and the service is beyond compare. I wil definitely be back with the family for special occassions!

Yum, exquisite Italian food. They had a pear/cheese pasta we had in Florence, will go back for that for sure.

We love to eat at Tomasos because it is the perfect combination of great food, great atmosphere and great and caring service
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a wonderful experience. Great selection and very accommodating. Easy parking and no steps for the elderly. Staff well trained and very efficient.

Tomaso's - a treasure
Tomaso's is an experience. The food, the service and the ambiance all combine to make it an experience to remember. We went for Restaurant Week and were so happy we did. I LOVE that most of the waiters speak Italian (and if they didn't - they did a great job of faking it). It really added to the evening. I must say that I've never had risotto like the risotto they make at Tomaso's. The mushroom risottos is to die for! Everything we ate was heaven on the tongue.

Great AZ Resturant Week Choice
The menu for restaurant week provided many options to choice from for each course. Loved the pear & goat cheese filled pasta purses and seafood Cioppino over linguine. The desert was outstanding... Chocolate Caramel Crunch served warm. Yummy!
We will come back again.

Our family always enjoys a quiet meal at Tomaso's. The service is marvelous and the food is scrumptious. We feel very comfortable and welcome.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Flexible and Friendly
We had a party of 7 people. Everyone like the food. One person asked if they could prepare a linguini fra diavola and the waiter said yes. Three people ordered it as a non menu item and they loved it.
The cannoli for desert was excellent.
We would all recommend it.

"Tomaso's Take me Away"
This is one of the hidden gems of the Valley. Service is prompt and attentive without being obtrusive.
It's a great place to linger after you finish what ever amazing entree you finally chose. No rush here.
Some of the best Italian food I have ever enjoyed. Thank you Gianni for always taking such wonderful care of us. Whether it's just the two of us or a group.... you make sure everything is perfecto.

Camelback Rd 24th St to 44th St
I have lived and worked in this area for 25 years and view this as a quiet treasure (although as I write this review, while I wish the best for this establishment, hopefully I will not be subject to a wait in the future). Within a 5 mile radius of the Camelback Rd/32nd Street intersection there are so many lovely dining establishments and I have enjoyed 90% of the options. But Tomaso's offers the best in a creative menu (the chef offers so many wonderful daily specials it is hard to choose). It is especially a great lunch option as parking is reasonable to self park, the staff treats you like a welcome guest and the service is excellent. Plus it is great for a business lunch as it is very quiet.

We found this restaurant with some friends of ours years ago and drive there from Scottsdale! The owner Tomasso is charming, handsome and knows how to run a restaurant! We were in Italy this summer and our visit to Tomassos this week brought back our experience there! I had veal Milanese and it was the best that I have had anywhere! We splurged on his own reserve wine! You can tell this isn't a tourist trap and know that this is where the locals come for a great meal!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything about Tomaso's was perfect. Even the conversations near our table were pleasant and not distracting. The menu is varied and interesting. The food was amazing. The paparadelle with mushrooms is one of the best in or out of Italy. Great "spumoni bombe" for dessert. Soup and salad excellent. Perfect evening.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
It's a do-again!
We come to Phoenix often for business and while this restaurant is less than a mile from where we stay this was our first visit. The pasta is homemade, the sauces rich but light, the wine list enticing, the veal tender and the service attentive but not intrusive.
Tomaso chatted with us and over all, I felt like I was back in Palermo which is where Tomaso is from.
A gem and we will return!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Thanksgiving dinner was very well done. We had the traditional meal, cooked with a bit of flair. We didn't try any of the typical Italian dishes on the menu, except for the salmon carpaccio starter--excellent!. The restaurant staff was warm, welcoming and very accommodating. We would recommend the restaurant for the service alone, and the food was also very good.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious food throughout the courses. Beautifully presented and extremely tasty.
