    We were a party of four. No complaints from anyone and starting from the bread, all salads, meals and wine and drinks were excellent as well as the one dessert we all split, the apple cider cake. Delicious. We'll be back.

    The service was great but our appetizer (sweet potato gnocchi) tasted burned. Also, two of the entrees were cold and one lacked flavor altogether. We go back because of the vast gluten free menu.

    I work for a company that has a lot of travelers coming to and from our office and often time we need a place to accompany them for dinner. Tavolino's has become our favorite go-to spot. It has great food, amazing service, and the atmosphere is perfect (not too loud where you can't hear one another and not too quiet when awkward silences become a little too apparent-- it's the perfect in between and just lively enough). I would recommend this place to anyone!

    Tavolino’s always comes through with great food and excellent service. The bar is always full of friendly people and the bartenders are the best! We had a table in the bar area and they didn’t rush us out to sit another group. We enjoyed an awesome evening with friends and really had time to relax and enjoy the experience!

    We had planned for a nice evening out and the atmosphere is great, but after ordering chicken parm - we had to return it as the bottom was burned. The server and the management were fantastic and very accommodating. They brought a new meal - and we were shocked to see that the bottom of the chicken was burned on the second attempt as well. Again, this is probably rare experience as we have been here before, but this was our current experience. The management team, took care of meal and dessert, so they have the right DNA - just not the right night for us.

    Tavolino has great ambiance and even better food. My waiter was one of the most polite and helpful that I have ever had. The cocktail menu: A+. The pulled pork pizza was a little spicy for my tastes, but my boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed it. The pesto pizza was perfect! We will definitely return for a great date-night dinner.

    My husband and I went to Tavalino's to celebrate a special occasion. The stuffed pepper appetizer - amazing! I splurged and got the short rib ravioli and it was divine! The short rib flaked on my fork and the raviolis were cooked perfectly. My husband ordered the rosemary steak tips medium rare and they were executed perfectly. Great wine and cocktail menu. It is a little expensive but for special occasions well worth it!

    We have dined at Tavolino's several times per year since they opened, and have nver come away dissatisfied. The servers are attentive, food very good and atmosphere comfortable without too much noise, depending on your table location. Try the nicely priced Martini of the Day. Wold Boar gnocchi, listed as as apppetizer, is one of the best items on the menu, and I consider it an entree sized portion!

    We celebrated an anniversary at Tavolino. Our table request was respected and our anniversary acknowledged by the server. The menu had a number of entrees that tempted us. Dinner was delicious and attractively plated. It was chilly in the restaurant though - I wasn't the only one wearing a jacket throughout dinner! At the end of the meal we were treated to a dessert and given a sweet bouquet. Nice touches.

    I had been to Tavolino once before with a large group of people and had a very pleasant experience. This time it was just one other person. Everything about this visit was positive. We were seated right on time, our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable, and the food was excellent. A very nice energy on a Saturday night. We'll definitely be going back.

    It was a business lunch, pure and simple. I gave my partners several places in Westborough where we could meet and they chose this one. Service was fine and our waiter very alert and attentive. That said, we were preoccupied with our current business issues and that more important than the ripeness of the avocado on my sandwich. I hope to use the discount card in the months ahead.

    1 out of the 4 meals order was very good. Cod dish was excellent. One of the best cod dishes I tasted. The Steak & gnochi was very good too although I am not a fan gnochi. Lasagna was ordinary as was the eggplant pizza. Service was very good in particular after ordering we asked about a wine to go with our meals, what we liked, and after consulting with their wine person the server cam back with an excellent, moderately priced wine that really saved the dinner from being pretty ordinary.

    Tavolino has always been one of our favorite spots. However, after moving out of the area, we hadn't been back in over a year. Most of our group enjoyed their meals, but several commented on how "peppery" the pasta dishes were. The calamari and artichoke appetizers were delicious, and the server was very amiable. Overall, still a gem, and I'm sure the food is usually still as excellent as it always was.

    Dining area was quite loud even though we were seated in rear of restaurant. Our waiter was very good. Food was okay. My dinner of chicken saltimboca was well seasoned and good tasting. I ordered a half portion which was sufficient. My husband ordered a full portion of chicken Marsala. There was hardly any sauce on the chicken and therefore pasta was rather dry and tasteless. The bread on the table was dry and tasted stale. It was served with oil, sprinkled with cheese. I doubt we will return.

    Portion are of good size if you pick the higher price choice. Prices might seem a little high but, you get what you pay for. If your date is not a big eater choose the smaller size and safe room for dessert.

    This was my second time here. It was a rather quite night so neither the kitchen nor staff were getting slammed. We sat at a booth in the bar area. We ordered an appetizer, a salad and main dish. the App was quickly followed by my salad. Then my clams with garlic entree came. Someone must really like garlic because the dish was overpowered with it. Not subtle just too much. The staff just felt like they were going through the paces.
