    We always look forward to lunching/dining at Tomasso and we were not disappointed! The 5 of us were given a special space off the bar that was semi-private and facilitated conversation among friends. Service was excellent, food and drink were delicious, a good time was had by all. We'll be back - again and again!

    we had the salmon croquette for starters. cooked perfectly. not too dry. great sauce. next was the dumplings which were very good & interesting. Last was the rabbit & sausage on a skewer. it was quite dry and the rabbit was unremarkable. I prefer the rabbit in pasta when done there. If you are going to make a rabbit sausage it need to be less well done dry and not with spicy sausage which overpowered the rabbit. choc dessert was great.

    Waited about 20 minutes for the appetizer to arrive. The entrees came about 30 minutes later. The pasta entrée and the pork chop were totally overcooked. Minute portions. Hoping for the dessert to be better but it was not the case. The espresso was closer to hot water than coffee. Not sure if I will return soon. Very surprising since my experience has been very favorable in the past.

    The food here is really wonderful: inventive and consistently well-executed. But the truly distinguishing factor is the service. Everyone with whom you come in contact --- from the greeter/seaters and bus people, right up to the General Manager (actively present) --- is genuinely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They give real meaning to the notion that they're in the hospitality business and you're their guests. Southborough is way out in the 'burbs, a trek for some, but Tomasso is definitely worth the effort.

    Our group had just finished having a dinner at another Metrowest restaurant but didn't want to stay there for dessert. It was 8:00 and were able to get 8:15 reservations for 6 at Tomasso. GREAT DECISION! The dessert menu was varied and everything we ordered was delectable--don't miss the tiramisu. Nice cappuccino, but only whole milk at the restaurant.

    Seems as if things have changed at Tomasso's. No longer a listing of the local Farm's where the food comes from as well as the food did not have the appeal, or presentation that it has in the past. Sean our server was superb. Love the wine list, best find of all is the house wine- price and taste is best on the menu! On a Tuesday evening in late April the restaurant was hopping. Asked for a quiet table which we were given, but when restaurant is filled and reservation is for prime time -- quiet is relative, esp. for those with hearing issues.

    My husband & I had dinner at Tomasso's on Monday. We hadn't been there for a while and had fond memories of the excellent food & service in the past. This time the food & service were both disappointing. One of our appetizers (fried calamari) arrive luke warm; the bread was cold; the sausage on the pizza was a few tiny, tasteless pieces; we tried to flag down a waiter to ask for fresh pepper and after 5+ minutes of waiting, my husband went over to a stand that had a pepper grinder on it and asked the bus person if we could borrow it. It was unexpectedly busy and our waiter had one table with a large party plus 4 small tables for 2 or 3 to serve, so that could explain the slow service. And perhaps it was an "off night" in the kitchen.

    But I hear their Italian food is really good! Brunch: Nutella French toast - wasn't appropriately battered, filled, or cooked properly. Bananas should've been caramel used, instead were mushy and tasteless. All toast with eggs were burned. Eggs were cold and underdone. Service was great except server did not introduce herself as the server. While very nice and attentive, this is taught in hospitality 101, no?

    Dined on 4/18/2014
    We are frequent diners and every year or so we say, let's try Tomasso's again! And inevitably we are disappointed. This lat visit was no exception. The pork chop was really good, it's accompanying wine sauce was terrible, if I wanted to pour wine on my chop I would have! The pasta dish was so spicy all I could taste pepper, not the pasta, not even tomato! So why did I give it a "Good" rating? The rest of the meal was exceptional...

    Tomassos is one of the only restaurants in our town but thankfully, we go there because it is good, not just convenient. However, last night Tomassos just did not rise to its normally high standards. The Arancini was a bit soggy, and 2 out of the 3 Ricotta Gnudi were burnt (though nice try at hiding the burnt part toward the plate). Our server was a bit more pushy than we felt appropriate. The Torta di Cioccolata and Mocha Budino saved the night, so intensely chocolately that it was impossible to finish-quite a statement considering it was girls night out. I am very much hoping that this was on off night & that Tomassos will continue to meet the high standards they have established for themselves and that we as patrons have come to expect.

    Living in the suburbs, it's difficult to find a NICE restaurant with great food/service. Something above a family restaurant. This is it. Food was very good, service outstanding. The bar was packed as well as the restaurant. We will absolutely make this place a regular jaunt. Rumors have long circulated that it's pricey. I would give it $$ out of $$$$. Reasonable. If you want a nice meal close to home.... This is it.

    It's not always a good thing when customers can see the interaction between the kitchen and the servers. In our case, we saw the kitchen place all four of the main courses for our table on the pickup counter. A server who had placed her order after ours picked up two of our entrees and took them to another table. When our server realized this, the two entrees that were ready were placed under heat lamps while the other orders were recooked. As a result, we all had to wait for our food and the two items that had been under the heat lamps were warm but not hot when they arrived. Our server was great, but seeing this disregard for customers and co-workers was not pleasant. Hence the 2 stars -- our server alone was worth 5.

    This was a really fine restaurant, then the chef left and the new one was not up to the job. It is much better now, if not as good as it was at first. The wine list used to be international, it is now just Italian. I almost checked 'fit for foodies', 'hot spot', 'notable wine list', 'vibrant bar scene' and 'romantic'. It's close on all of these counts but not yet really there.

Old bread, cold stuffed cabbage, dry short rib , bland stuffed chicken and the pear sorbet and chocolate mousse aside ,desserts no better than any run of the mill eatery. Hopefully it was just a bad evening and they return to their previous high standard next time.

    there were five of us for a birthday lunch. The server(s) were patient with us and with our questions and brought everything in a timely fashion by having more than one server. They were also patient as we lingered to share cards and a present. So it was really a perfect place for a birthday lunch. I had called before and they recommended making a later reservation (1 p.m) so that we wouldn't be holding up anyone else since lunch service ends at 2:30 (I think), though we were not at all hurried out. Really pleasant people and terrific food with some inventive recipes.
