Tavolino - Westborough
very good food and drinksVery enjoyable evening. Went with my wife and two daughters. Drinks were very good. Got the Tuscan nachos for an appetizer. Very tasty. I had herb rubbed pork over lentils which was very tasty. The other three entrees were equally good. Would definitely go back.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion placeGreat food, excellent service from all members of wait staff.

The light Northern Italan menu saves a trip Boston's North End at a lower price. The lunch fare features light salads, pizza and Pannini that are well though out and excellent. Even nicer their patio is an excellent place lunch or dinner on a warm evening.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's all about meTavs is excellent in regard to making you feel important .

Food was good to fabulous.Service was excellemt (thanks Bethany) .We will be back.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGrad celebrationTavolino- Westborough never disappoints. Celebrated our son's graduation at 8:45 PM on a Friday night. The place was packed (but we had reservations). The staff was hustling but made everyone feel comfortable not rushed. Our waitress was pleasant and professional, our food (chicken saltimbocca, a bolonese dish, and a pepp pizza) was delicious and delivered much quicker than we expected due to the full house. There are many choices of where to go out to eat around here, including other Italian restaurants, but Tavolino is a cut above.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, reasonable prices!I have been to Tavolino's twice before, but ate at the bar - and had a great experience both times. This was my first experience in the dining room. We ordered the Tuscan "Nacho's" and both had small pasta plates (which was a perfect portion!). The food and service were great! The pasta arrived a *bit* too early, but was hot and delicious. The waitress was very charming and efficient. I felt the noise level was a bit loud for a conversation across the table. I think next time I will stick to sitting at the bar. Lovely meal!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful birthday celebrationTook my wife and kids (grown) to celebrate my wife's birthday. Had a wonderful meal and they made a big deal out of her birthday with a special desert (we never asked).
The food is excellent, generous portions and a wonderful wine list.
Meraviglioso!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service!I went to Tavolino with my family for a graduation lunch and could not be happier with my choice. Not only was the food delicous, but the staff was extremely friendly and attentive. At the end of the meal, the staff brought out a special dessert and flower for the graduate. The personal attention was much appreciated and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMUnexpected GemAs a 1st experience, I thought it was a very nice spot w. a romantic atmosphere. I came here for dinner w. a good friend & her husband. We sat outside due to the nice spring weather. The wait was short and we had a nice waitress to serve us. A quick glimpse of the tables inside, it gave off a very nice warm and lively atmosphere. They also had a very nice wine selection. The tables outside were decorated with umbrella and candlelight; a very nice spot for a date or dinner with friends. The chatter around us was lively, but not overbearing or annoying. The table was clean and the waitress was attentive and catered to my friend who a vegetarian. The food was good but the portions range from moderate to small. But I would def. come back again.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary DinnerWe had an excellent anniversary dinner thanks to the staff at Tavolinos. Alexander our waiter was attentive and polite. Food was delicious.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA Must!This was our first visit to Tavolino's, and we are definitely going again. The food was excellent, as was the service, and atmosphere.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThe food was surpurb! Brusetta was delicous. Best meatloaf Ive ever had. Would go back anytime.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service not bad foodService was great waiter was very kind and water glass never empty. Food was good mash potatoes could have been better no flavor everything else was great and will defiantly go back5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDistracted dinnerWe absolutely love Tavolino the food is always fantastic, I have to be fair in saying the service was not so good but we will give them a pass. The bruins were on that night and the wait staff was more interested in the game, at one point I hadn't seen our waiter in 45 minutes. When I saw him watching the game I casually asked him the score when he returned and he could not even tell me, lol. I will definately be back soon...love it and the one at Patriot Place was excellent as well.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNo sun- food great all the same!Salads and food were great! Esp. Fusili with lemon thyme sauce! Too bad the weather couldn't operate as well.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA Neighborhood Gem!We love dining at Tavs! We find it warm, inviting and the food and service are wonderful!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in WestboroughExcellent food, service. A little noisy, but there were quite a few celebrations going on. So if you are looking for a romantic dinner try to book a quiet corner.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMTavolinos shows EXCELLENT ServiceMy wife and I went here on date night. The risotto balls were amazing (we always start with these!), the wedge salad was fresh and crisp and we were having a great night. Her pesto pizza came out timely and was very good. My bourbon steak tips were over cooked and it was the first time that I have witnessed this at this restaurant. The waitstaff checked in on us and I explained how it was over cooked. They said we will do anything for you sir, so if you want more steak tips cooked or another dinner please let us know. I decided to order more. Wow they came out prompt and perfectly cooked all on a matter of 5-8 minutes, meaning they did it as a priority. Exceptional service with great food. That is my take on this local gem.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe keep coming back. GreatWe keep coming back. Great food, great pizza when you want something light. Chef Anthony is outstanding. Outstanding gourmet wine dinners.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DinnerWonderful Mother's Day dinner in a cozy booth at the bar. Very comfortable and delicious food!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day lunchTook my mother here on mother's day. Excellent wine, service, and food! They even gave my mom a red rose for Mother's Day. THAT, my friends, is great customer service, and what will keep us coming back to the restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur new favorite!Went to Tavolino (Westborough) on Mother's Day to celebrate that and triple birthdays (3 adults sisters took their mother). From start to finish the experience could not have been any nicer! The restaurant is beautiful, interesting in detail, neat and clean. The staff -- from our waiter, to the bus staff, and others -- all worked seamlessly as a team to help each other serve all guests quickly and efficiently and most of all pleasantly. They all struck the perfect mix of professional and pleasant. The menu is a wonderful array of food choices where all items are made to order. My party had eggplant parm, lobster, chicken marsala and all were delicious. This restaurant is most definitely a cut above others in the area -- our new favorite!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful serviceService was very attentive. Portions are very large and quite delicious. A great value for the price. I was very impressed when shortly after we left the restaurant my phone rang and it was the manager informing us that a friend had left her umbrella at the table.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food; great serviceWe took our 8 and 10 year old here on a Saturday night (had made reservations - recommended as someone walked in right before us asking how long for a table and was told 3 hours). This restaurant does have a loud noise level but not to the point where you can't hear people at your own table. Appetizers (mussels and stuffed red peppers) were excellent. I had risotto of the day and my spouse had the eggplant parm. Both were good but risotto had several bites that were a bit undercooked and just lacked flavor. Mini desserts are a fantastic idea and the chocolate mousse was great! Will definitely go back to try the pizza.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTavolino's is a great spotTavolino's is a great spot for a "regular" night out or special occasion. The food is very good-the house pizza was amazing. This restaurant is certain to become one of our "regulars".5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a treat.This is the fourth time I have eaten at Tavolinos and each experience was excellent. The food is served quickly and at the right temperature. The drinks are fairly priced along with the menu.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNeed More Like ThisWe have been here many times and have never been disappointed. The food is solidly creative, tasty, and there is a menu item for all tastes. We enjoyed the wild boar gnocchi, crab cakes, shrimp & scallops seasoned with a hint of pancetta, and veal marsala, all solid hits.
The wine list is compact, yet comprehensive, and I have not seen better pricing in the greater Boston area. The service is always efficient and professional. This night was challenging for the waitress as she was handling the outdoor patio as well as our table indoors and there was not a real hitch the whole evening.
A real consistent deliverer of a satisfying and enjoyable dining experience.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall enjoyable eveningOverall enjoyable evening and good food. Wine parings with 4 course meal was a plus. Will definitely go back5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMwe like it here. interestingwe like it here. interesting take on standard Italian with daily risotto & stuffed raviolis but pizzas but spaghetti & meatballs can still be found. This place hits the niche as we saw a wonderful mix of couples, families with small children and tables of seniors during our visit. Also the wine list is fairly broad and very reasonably priced, such that you feel comfortable experimenting and don't feel pressured into making a 'safe' selection. Finally everyone we talked to from the hostess to our server to the manager who stopped by, seemed genuinely concerned that we were comfortable and satisified5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTavolinos continues to impressWe were back at Tavolinos again, celebrating a birthday this time. The service continues to be impressive. Just when you think everything is wonderful, they surprise you by going above and beyond your expectations!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Good Family SpotReliable spot in the area for family dining. They aim to please. Prefer going at off peak times when it's more comfortable and quieter.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a great restaurantIt was a great restaurant with good food and service to match. Will definitely go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was amazing--wThe food and service was amazing--we loved the menu choices. The only downside of the evening was the noise level--we were with one other couple, and we could barely hear ourselves. Conversation was very difficult. That being said, we will still go back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had a wonderfulMy husband and I had a wonderful dinner to celebrate my birthday.
The food was delicious and service was terrific.
My meal ended with a special birthday dessert and a bouquet of flowers

We will be frequenting Tavolino's in the not-to-distant future.

Food is always good.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat- as usualThis is not the first time we have dined at Tavolino. As expected, the food, service and ambience were wonderful. We will continue to go here regularly.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTavolino makes a fabulous night outI had recently bought a Groupon to Tavolino and my husband and I tried it. We liked it so much we have been back three times since. The food is outstanding, the service is outstanding, and the wine list is outstanding. It is rare for us to order a bottle of wine at a restaurant but the prices are so affordable. The atmosphere is perfect for relaxing and enjoying ones company. I recommend making reservations as the wait times can exceed over an hour. I especially like that I can make online reservations through "open table".4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a fabulous waitress lastHad a fabulous waitress last Saturday night who was helpful in letting us move our table. I had an amazing spinach salad. My husband ordered the crab cakes and said they were excellent. I forgot to ask for a risotto substitution with my salmon so I cannot comment on that side dish salon was moist ad eggplant side dish was yummy. My mocha pound cake dessert was the perfect ending to a great night out, simply delicious.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food! Wait staffDelicious food! Wait staff were great with our large group.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAleksander was top notch asAleksander was top notch as a waiter. Will be requesting him every time we return.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMYou won't be disapointed!!!!This is one of me and my boyfriend's favorite dinner locations. The food is always amazing. For an appetizer, our favorite is the Arrancini. For entrees, one of us always gets the Butternut Squash Tortellaci and then we switch up the second entree. We have had the Risotto of the Day, Italian Meatloaf, and the Steak Tips with Gorgonzola Penne. We have yet to be disappointed. All of the servers have been fantastic. Never had an issue!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat wine list...they onlyGreat wine list...they only mark up $15 a bottle..splurge and get something nice...food quality is always consistently good. I thoroughly enjoyed the lamb chops, my wife had a great salmon. Karen the General Manager always goes out of her way when we see her.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA recent find for us - weA recent find for us - we love this place. Great service and the food is outstanding.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian fare in a modern settingWe had an enjoyable experience overall. There is a vibrant bar area to the left and to the right a more relaxed dining experience awaits. The décor is modern yet has some old-word elements. The place gets crowded and can be very loud at times. Appetizers: the wild boar gnocchi had a nice burst of spiciness and the calamari was crispy yet tender. Bread is served warm with a seasoned olive oil for dipping. Cocktails are creative and delicious - try the blood orange cosmo. The pan seared wahoo was great, served with polenta & broccolini. Veal saltimbocca was very good also, but the rice was wet so it went uneaten. Service was very good also.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been here so many times.Have been here so many times. Never ordered the same thing twice. Love everything on the menu (except for the apple-peartini)! Super delicious, affordable, great service-- have never left hungry or unsatisfied with the experience!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
