    The food, wine and service were outstanding. My reserved table was available promptly at the reservation time. My only observation is that it is a loud atmosphere. Conversations can be difficult at times. That won't make me pass it up though, just be selective in the type of evening you are looking for.

    We were seated right away when we arrived at our reservation time. Our waiter was attentive and friendly without lingering at our table. There are a lot of items in the menu that look good. I finally decided to go with the farelle with kale and sausage. The waiter told me right away that they were out of bow tie pasta so I went with penne. My husband chose the seafood cioppino. Both meals were very good as was the siena spritzer that I had as a drink. For a busy Friday night, the service was smooth and professional. The sound level was low enough that we could hear each other.

    If you ever head to a Patriot's game at Gillette Stadium, be sure to keep Tavolino in mind. The food is top notch, on par with competitor Davio's, but far more reasonably priced. Service was outstanding and they take reservations, even on game day. Highly recommended.

    Love their GF pizza, and the care they take in separating it from the non-GF foods at a table. I had the bacon/sweet potato pizza with arugula - next time I'll ask for more arugula, what an amazing combo! Appetizer wings are so delicious. Great time!

    Went to Tavolino with a group of girlfriends for a Saturday night dinner. The restaurants was bustling, we had reservations, and had a good ambience. We ordered the meatballs and the calamari appetizers. Meatballs very good (but too much cheese on them) and the calamari was standard (frankly a little disappointing). The entrees were much better, I had the Osso Buco, a tender and flavorful dish of veal shanks perfectly cooked with roasted brussels sprouts on the side. I could have done without the risotto, it didn't add to the dish at all. Another friend had the steak tips which she said were very good, a third had the cod, also very good. Our waiter was attentive and friendly.

    Another great experience and the food never disappoints. We all had pizza, which we rarely order. The house pizza was delicious. I usually don't care for meat on my pizza, but the applewood bacon was the perfect compliment to the Gorgonzola cheese and walnuts. Can't wait to go back!

    I have been here many times and have always love the antipasto for 2. It was always delicious and differently made each time. I was very disappointed to not see it on the menu anymore. However, when mentioned to Amy, best bartender around, that I was disappointed about the antipasto, it was immediately taken care of. Shortly after, this fantastic antipasto was brought to our table! This made my evening because the staff went out of their way to be sure I was happy with my dining experience. Now that's service beyond!

    I met my friend here for dinner and we had a great time. The food was very good. The salmon was mildly overcooked, but everything was still very good. They have many pizza options that looked very good, but I have not tried any of them. We had a very nice time. we were able to catch up at our table, and it felt like a private dinner although there were many people around us. The wine I had was very good and the pear cocktail drink my friend got was also very good.

    We were seated promptly when we arrived. The bread was good and came to the table quickly, which was good because we were starving. We ordered drinks, which were very good, and an appetizer, which was ok, but not great. We ordered two pizzas for three of us to share, and both were delicious and we ended up with leftovers to take home. The only thing that was a little annoying was the service; our server was MIA for part of the night, so we were at the restaurant for a while, but that could be because she was training a new waiter. That being said, I've never been disappointed with the food or the cost, whether I do take-out or dine-in. Always a good place to go for a reasonably priced yummy meal! I'm sure I'll be back in the near future.

    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
