Tavolino - Westborough
A 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 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 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.

My meal ended with a special birthday dessert and a bouquet of flowers

I can not wait for the outside to open.
Everything was perfect.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid wine list, nicely priced!Solid wine list, nicely priced!
Food is always good.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good but it tookFood was good but it took a very long time to arrive. Our waiter was pretty attentive so I don't know if it was the kitchen that was slow or what. We were still waiting for the appetizers to arrive after almost 40 minutes, which is not ideal especially with kids. We wanted to treat visiting grandparents to a nice dinner, and it was also difficult for them to sit for so long & wait. So, I guess this place is best if you want a slow, relaxing meal. Allow yourself plenty of time & be prepared to wait.4/16/2013 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.

Food and service are excellent.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTavolino's is one of my favoriteTavolino's is one of my favorite restaurants. I would recommend reservations, the wait can be an hour, although there are usualy seats at the pizza bar. A favorite dish of mine is the potato wrapped haddock served with fresh perfectly cooked vegetables. Salads are fresh, the house dressing delicious. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTavolino's did not disappointTavolino's did not disappoint as we had a most pleasant evening. The food preparation and service, even on a very busy Saturday evening, were excellent. Tavolino's never fails to deliver a wonderful total dining experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellently service and veryExcellently service and very good food will bring us back for another visit3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only down side to thisThe only down side to this resteraunt is the parking! The food and service was outstanding!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA great choiceWe tried the four course sampler ($24.95) with the accompanying wine tastings ($11.95) and thoroughly enjoyed the meal.
Our wait-staff were exceptional and really pushed the experience over the top.
Looking forward to going back soon.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI called a couple of hoursI called a couple of hours before our reservation to order a special birthday dessert. They were great about it and it came out as promised, at just the right time (and 'no singing' policy was much appreciated!).3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent first visit - will go badWe had an excellent experience in our first visit to Tavolino's in Westborough. We were seated in a rather uncomfortable spot, and we asked if we could move, they graciously accommodated us. The service was attentive. Very nice cocktails, served in interesting mini ice buckets to keep them cold, Nice selection of wines and very good food. I would go back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find in WestboroughMy wife and I went for a late-nite desert which was great. We did make a reservation, but arrived almost an hour late from our prior engagement. Staff was very accomodating (although we did call ahead to be sure they were still serving at 11 p.m.).
Although we didn't eat from the dinner menu, a number of dishes looked very tempting. That combined with the extremely attentive staff means we'll definitely be back!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSo I gave it another try, GOOD!On the upswing again! Lunch was wonderful, they have awesome crab cakes and wine list as usual. Newer staff, seems to be bringing back some of the character from its opening days. Still miss chef and the first staff, but the new Chef has fallen into place, and the Acting Manager was such a love to work with. Our server was divine, just great to be back and want to come back!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Fiance and I purchasedMy Fiance and I purchased a groupon to try Tavolino's and our dining experience exceeded our expectations. The service was great and most importantly the food was FANTASTIC! They were even very accommodating with a dietary request I had made.

We can't wait to go back and try the pizza..it looked amazing!3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat..service great..foodgreat..service great..food always good..and reliable..never had a bad meal3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Restaurant!The meal was fabulous.

Exceptional dining!!3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant was fantastic!This restaurant was fantastic! My boyfriend and I went there for our anniversary and everything was great from the service to the food. After we finished eating our waitress asked us if it had been our first time dining there, when we said yes the manager came right over and spoke with us about our experience and gave us a coupon to come back again and try other menu items. There was a group at the bar that was rather loud, so I would not recommend this place if you want a quiet intimate dinner, but for us it was not a big deal. I would definitely recommend this place, and we will surely go back!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
