    My wife and I took an out of town couple there for dinner. The service was outstanding, our waitress Liz was very accomodating to the needs of one of our diners with an allergy. The food, as always is great. Try the wild boar appetizer, it's delicious.

    Tavolinos in Foxboro was a spontaneous selection. Hadn't been there before and loved it. The food selections had wonderful, creative ingredients making it difficult to choose. Had the grilled chicken pannini with fig spread - delicious! My husband enjoyed the grilled veggie ravioli. We will return!

    I have dined at Tavolinos a few times. Usually just as a place to meet up with friends for great gourmet pizza and a few drinks. This past visit with family we ordered regular dinners. Surf and Turf, Mediterranean chicken and something else. I will continue to go back for pizza but will likely not order from the other entrees again. Pizza is what Tavolinos does best. The atmosphere is very nice as well as the service.

    We took 2 other couples out to lunch at 2 pm on a Sunday. We ordered drinks and appetizers with no problems and placed our entrée orders. After waiting 45 min plus, we asked our waitress when we would be getting out food and she went to check. Another while elapsed and our food came - half of it. One of our friend's meal (ravioli) was cold it had been sitting around in the kitchen for so long. Then some other of our friends meals were delivered. By the time I got my raviolis (nice and hot), my friend had finished hers. It was a quiet time at 2 pm, and I think the kitchen didn't have enough to keep them occupied and must have taken a break or something. We were very disappointed as we eat at Tavolino's often on special occasions.

    This time out was back to the phenomenal experiences we had at the beginning of this restaurant's conception. Our last experience was sub-par due to inexperienced chefs in the kitchen, and so the manager compensated us with a generous gift certificate for our next visit. I showed the letter to our waitress, Aundrea, who was GREAT and made sure to take good care of us. The food was excellent (salad crispy, wings perfectly seasoned, veal saltibocca devine, and chicken cutlet pizza with generous toppings), as well as the drinks. We will definitely come back again now that they are back on track and up to speed.

    Ate here before a NE Revolution game. Arrived early, thinking we'd have to deal with more traffic/parking issues than we did. They were able to seat us right away, which was nice. Crab cakes - not very good. The spice was way too overpowering that I couldn't really taste/enjoy the crab. We split the Balsamic BBQ Chicken pizza. It was okay - not horrible, but not really memorable either. My biggest issue was the timing of the whole meal. The service itself was good (Joseph was our server, very friendly and attentive)... but timing with the kitchen made us feel very rushed. The pizza came out before we even finished the appetizer. Being crowded before the game, we figured they'd want turnover, but I don't like feeling rushed through meals.

    Chose this restaurant because of the gluten-free options and we were not disappointed. There are pizza and pasta options as well as other choices. Food was great, service was exceptional (because of our waitress... I cannot speak for others). We had a reservation & although we arrived 20 mins early we were seated immediately. We were glad we sat outside because like other reviews stated it can be very loud sitting inside.

    We went here as a family group about a year ago and sat in the outdoor area which was great since some of our group had a new baby in tow. (She slept thought the meal!). This time it was cool and drizzly outside, so we had to eat inside but they put our group of six plus now 1 year old in a back room corner table which was great. (the 1 year old slept though the meal again!). Drinks were great, pizza was amazing and salads/appetizers just as good. We would recommend this for anyone seeking a fun place with food, and reasonable prices given the quality

    Overall we had a good dining experience. The place was organized and clean and the staff was very kind. My family had split 2 pizza's and we all enjoyed what we got. Any of the menu items looked appealing and not crazy expensive. We are mainly wine drinkers and we all were able to find something we wanted, again not badly priced. The noise level here is pretty loud though making conversations at our table difficult but not impossible. They do have outdoor seating but we had eaten inside. It likely would have been easier to talk to ourselves outside among the busy Patriot Place area compared to inside.

    My boyfriend and I have never had a bad experience here! From the bread and oil they first serve you when you sit down, to the amazing pizza selections you'll always come back for more! As a Friday "date night", we enjoyed a little two seater table that was perfect for the amount of food we had. Our waiter, Joe, brought over an extension to the table as well that he placed our Gorgonzola and Grap pizza on. Let me tell you, I don't fruit on my pizza usually, but now I'll be open-minded since this was so good. We also split a Mediterranean Salad, that came on two plates already, instead of going through the hassle of dishing it out ourselves! Joe was awesome, the bread and oil to die for, and we'll always return to try other pizzas!

    Great atmosphere, was able to sit outside on a beautiful night. The menu has lots of options, even if you do not want pizza, but the pizza is excellent, and the list is extensive. Pizzas come in small and large, and you can get half of one kind and half of another, even on the small. They also have a variety of cocktails on their drink menu. The service left a little to be desired, our waitress was inattentive all night, but as we were not in a rush, it wasn't a big deal.

    My husband and I recently ate at Tavolino's with another couple and had a really nice night. It was a warm summer night so we sat outside. Sitting outside is fun because Patriot Place has become a busy place so there are lots of people out walking and shopping. Everyone in our group ordered salads and pizzas and everyone was happy with the food. Nice selection of beer, wine and cocktails. The service was excellent. It was a very enjoyable night and I would definitely go back!

    A year ago we had a terrible meal at Tavolinos, but this visit was excellent. I had the kale salad, which was very fresh and crunchy. The vegetable ravioli was also delicious in a light sauce surrounded by many different vegetables. The only one who was not as excited about his meal was my husband. He ordered the linguine in a white clam sauce and thought the sauce was heavy and not very tasty.

    We ordered a pizza that came with jalapenos but ours had none so I asked for some jalapenos on the side. 10 minutes later and no jalapenos. I asked another waiter for them. Another 10 minutes elapsed, still no jalapenos. Neither of the servers had even acknowledged our existence after our request. Finally, when I had just one slice of pizza left, I went up to the counter and informed our waitress that we were still waiting for the jalapenos. Her reaction was "Really, they didn't bring them out?" A few minutes later, she came with a plate full of jalapeno slices, put them down next to the one remaining slice of pizza and asked " Will these be enough or do you need more?" At that point I was really too annoyed to be polite! Took 25 minutes!

    I love Tavolinos and have been several times, and was so excited to go for my birthday! I ordered the grilled veggie platter to start, and the runner that brought it out to me showed me and it was literally a plate of onions on it with bread. It was awful! THEN she forced the plate in it's place, spilling my drink in my lap! She looked at me, soaking wet, and said "yeah, that is a lot of onions", and walked away. My waitress came over and took the plate and brought me a new one - with actual vegetables on it. But wouldn't you think the grilled veggie platter would be warm? It was ice cold! I ate it because I was already sticky and wet with the drink and didn't want to make a fuss any further. They charged me for the lap drink!

    I love this place! The summer vegetable plate was great once we figured out how to eat it (a little messy but soooo good and healthy!) the wings were so juicy and crispy we wanted more. The pizza was also fabulous. So inventive... argula, bacon, sweet potato! Love it! Only thing was our drinks. Wish the waitress told us that they did not have the tea pots for the Boston Tea Party drinks... and my Wachusett draft did not come with blueberries in it even though the people next to us had them in theirs. The seating was GREAT because I put in a special note to not seat us in the skinny walk thru. We had a corner booth on a very busy night (wait was 1 hour+) Excellent excellent. Favorite restaurant ever! Will be back next month.

    I've been coming here for the last 2 years for the post race party (Finish at the 50) with groups of 8-10. Each time has been very enjoyable. The restaurant has been very accommodating as our group tends to grow by 1 or 2 people more than the reservation which is usually made well in advance of race day. Typically we order wings and calamari for apps plus 3 or 4 pizzas. The wings and calamari disappear quickly. The pizza is very good, especially the eggplant pizza. It did not sound too appetizing when someone ordered it last year. But it was the number 1 choice this year along with the margherita pizza, pepperoni pizza and mushroom pizza. Not a big fan of the mushroom pizza (portabello mushroom), but everything was very tasty.

    Our family of four had dinner before a Revolution game, and were disappointed in our dinner: - The Grilled and Chilled veggie appetizer seemed like a bunch of veggies were just dropped down on the plate -- without any salt. The bean dip was very bland (not garlicky as advertised). Overall pretty bland. - The Melanzana pizza had barely any cheese (feta or mozzarella), and the eggplant ribbons were dropped on top, and fell off when a slice was picked up. - The Lemon Bar dessert was missing the toasted meringue and caramelized sugar advertised on the menu - The kids' steak tips were very tough, nearly impossible to eat. - Service was spotty, the waiter wasn't very attentive to drinks -- no one ever refilled our empty water glasses
