Tappo Ristorante Italiano
Great food and ServiceAlways top notch at Tappo. Food and service are great. Owners are nice and accommodating.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't Wait to Go Back!This is my 2nd trip since late February. I drive here from Brooklyn? On my first trip I loved the food and service, and noticed some other items on the menu that I wanted to try. The eggplant croquets were fantastic, as is the "Linguine Nero". I actually asked that they serve the seafood I ordered over the Linguine. No problem...and delicious! My girlfriend had the Ravioli filled w/ beets, she loved them!
I can't comment on the wine list, as I had the drive back to Brooklyn, though judging on all the corks they have there, I'd say the list is pretty extensive.
They are very attentive here, prices are fair, and portions generous.
I look forward to my third visit, and hope to bring a few more of my Brooklyn friends with me.

At first we were a little concerned because there were two big groups and our table for 2 on a Tuesday night during Restaurant Week. When I heard everyone speaking Italian, I knew the food wasn't going to disappoint. The owner was very involved and hospitable, and we were attended to like we were frequent guests there. The tomato sauce on the vegetable lasagna was delicious -- I can't wait to go back and order something with that sauce. My husband had the chicken which he enjoyed. The end of the meal was the best with chocolate molten cake, chocolate gelato, a cappuccino and a limoncello. So excited we found Tappo!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfetto from the start to the end!Felt like i was in Italy!

Nice wine selection leaning more to Italian vintages. They have a nice wine offer when you dine on Mondays and Tuesdays any wine under $100 is half off. Deserts are nice also. Nice place where you can not go wrong.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Good Find!This was our first visit here, and we're happy we found it (we accidently walked into the place next door!). It is set back from the street, so don't make the same mistake we did.
I ordered the "cozze"...very tasty! Also, one of my favorites "Black" Linguine (made with squid ink...not many places serve this) was on the menu. It was served with lobster. It was fantastic. My girlfriend had the Pollo Paula, which was also very good.
The service was excellent, and they are very friendly. Though a long way from Brooklyn, I will be back!
