    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 5/15/2012
    Once again, our family group of six, celebrating an unannounced birthday, descended upon and very much enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Tazzina Bistro. We visit every time we are in the area and within fifty miles of the location. The chef and the menu have continued to evolve and improve -- so there is always a reason to come back. On this visit everyone, from teens to senior seniors, had a wonderful meal with attentive but unobtrusive service. Funny, but this has become the go-to restaurant for us.

    It is nice to find such a delightful cafe in Woodland! This is the third time I've dined here and each time has been a real treat! This time I enjoyed a generous portion of the asparagus quiche with a green salad and a glass of Alexander Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, and I saved room for an affogato & a cup of coffee. My lunch guest enjoyed the vegetable panini with a cup of the asparagus bisque and a glass of the Honig Sauvignon Blanc. She saved room for the freshly-baked fudge brownie topped with peanut butter ice cream. What a great way to celebrate a birthday!!!

    From start to finish, the complete dining experience at Tazzina stands up to the best restaurants in the state. The service was attentive, but not intrusive and they were sensitive to our needs, clearing dishes promptly and making sure we had everything we needed. The food was excellent--tasty but light. The ceasar salad was as good as it gets. Prices are very reasonable and atmosphere romantic and comfortable. Woodland is fortunate to have such a fine restaurant.

    One of the best we have ever experienced. We have dined in some of the best in LA , San Francisco, and Mexico City. Our selections were well presented, and had incredible palate contrasts. We live in Woodland and no longer have to travel to Sacramento for a great experience. (The Firehouse)

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/30/2012
    I would give this a 3 out of 5. First we asked for a glass of riesling and was told they dont carry it any more. We then asked for a white Zin, no luck. What restaurant doesnt carry at least one of those wines. We started with an appetizer of calamari that was tough as elastic. We ate half of them. My wife ordered the salmon special no issues there. Well presented and taste was very good! I ordered the beef stroganoff and would rate it a 2 as it was overly heavy in sauce and mushrooms with 2 pieces of beef. I will say the braed was excellent and the server was great! A very comfy palace to dine especially the window seats.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/18/2012
    Overall the place is decent for a nightcap and dessert but not a meal. The service was good, but the food was bland, and wholly uninteresting. The food would fit in at a diner, but not at a bistro. The papperdelle we ordered came with overcooked shrimp, and the beef stroganoff was more of a cream of mushroom with noodles. The Trio of Tazzinas was the meal's saving grace every part of that dish was perfect, the creme brulee was more of a pudding than a custard which made it fairly unpalatable. The place is decorated exceptionally well, and has a really good ambiance.

    We had the delicious and inventive salmon on a bed of lentils and greens--delectable! This is such a charming little place--we are quite willing to drive the distance from Sacramento to enjoy it now and then. It has a true bistro vibe and a truly attentive and caring wait staff. Love the handsome old brick walls and relaxed ambience. The only slight flaw is the noise--but it's worth it for the great food and thoughtful service.

    Hawkman50VIP
    Dined on 2/22/2012
    We had been to Tazzina's before but were somewhat disappointed this time. The disappointment was because of a less than stellar gnocchi dish(the "crisp" gnocci were mushy and not very flavorful). The rest of the dish was very tasty and would have been better served with some pasta instead of the gnocci. The other disappointment was a lack of a children's menu. The two other main courses were a pork sugo that was delicious and a braised beef lasgna that was vry tasty.

    We had an early reservation; when we left, the tables were almost entirely occupied -- nevertheless, the noise level never became objectionable. The food selections were interesting and varied -- the dinner menu evolves seasonally with daily specials. Each member of the party was very satisfied with their meal -- yes, there was some cross-tasting. The service was very attentive and helpful without being intrusive. This was a repeat visit and we have every intention to dine here again when we are in the vicinity.

    We came in with a coupon for my spouse's birthday, as we like Tazzina B for truly nice occasions. The sharp server saw the coupon and said they had an even better Wednesday Special of 1/2 off the bottle of the nice champagne I was ordering! Such a treat... Wow! The food was well prepared and delicious as always. The stress of what to order for dessert can be eliminated by simply ordering the Tazzina Trio - a fabulous idea - three small portions of three different desserts! The portions and tastes were just right. Thanks to the TB Crew...
