    Very excited to find this San Jose gem. White table clothes, charming atmosphere, decent wine list and incredible food. This can rival some of the best Italian restaurants in Chicago and New York. My only issue with this place after going 4 times is the lack of good service. Some of the waitstaff comes off sort of euro-trash with an attitude. If they brought in a few high level, seasoned waiters / waitresses this place would be untouchable. Clearly the not-so-great staff hasn't kept me away because the food is incredible.

    Overall the four us who dined here enjoyed the experience and the food. Without going into detail, all the dishes, save one, were either good or very good. The one misstep was the ravioli stuffed with boar meat and served with a mushroom/cream sauce. The ravioli were unusual in shape and both the sauce and the insides were delicious. However, the ravioli dough itself was thick and tough and put a damper on the dish. We had great desserts, our server recommended an excellent Italian wine for our food, and our friends report the cocktails were excellent.

    We had a wonderful appetizer...looked like little meatballs drizzled in marinara sauce, and on the inside, a delicious mixture of flavor! For dinner, had the Pollo Marsala special (super yummy) and Tagliatelle Ripienne...I'm sure I'm spelling that wrong...we ate EVERYTHING on our plates! Service was great...loved the ambiance with the quaint little lamps at the perimeter tables, paint and archways. Will def go back!

    Had reservations for 4 at 8:15. Restaurant was very busy but our table was ready and waiting when we got there. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks available. My wife and I are vegans but our guests were not. There was something for everyone and our vegan dishes were outstanding. Never felt rushed and our server was attentive. We all had an excellent evening and we definitely plan on going back.

    Overall pretty good as long as you don't mind a few service issues. The food is good and has some interest. You get items that you don't see at every other restaurant. For example there were two types of wild boar on the menu. I had some excellent wild boar raviolis. The decor is attractive without being fussy. Our service was enthusiastic but uncoordinated. We had at least six! people involved with taking our orders. No surprise errors were made, the wrong items brought at times. Also we had some fast service, but then some inexplicably slow moments. For example our waiter brought our first glass of wine right away. He was asked twice to bring us a refill. Both times he appeared to simply forget and we waited 10-15 minutes.

    We had an amazing 4 course dinner at Tigelleria and everything was organic vegan or vegetarian. Remarkable food preparation and presentation, attentive, fun staff. The restaurant has a private room which made the occasion very special. If you value food quality and are a little challenged by where to eat because your are wanting amazing organic vegan or vegetarian food....I suggest this gem of a restaurant. Excellent!

    I took my wife to Tigelleria for date night on a Friday. We were both pleasantly surprised by how quaint the interior of the restaurant was. We were warmly greeted by a host and seated right away. I had made a reservation not knowing how busy it might be, but they had just opened for the evening dinner service and there was plenty of seating still available. Our waiter was delightful and energetic. He helped us pronounce a few dishes on the menu as the dish titles are all in Italian with English descriptions. I had the lamb chops and my wife had a vegetarian meal of which I can not pronounce nor spell. Both dishes were excellent! Overall my wife and I had an amazing evening with great food. 10/10 would go again.

    The menu is extensive and we opted to start with the octopus starter sliced razor thin and a wake up to the taste buds. We shared the black kale salad followed by the lamb entrée that was absolutely heavenly and the pork entrée. I suspect the fish entrees are also fabulous. Relaxed . . nice ambience . . . great waiter . . . . and topped off the pistachio ice cream with caramel sauce. We will definitely be back again. Every item we ordered was exceptional.

    This is not the restaurant if you are in a hurry. This is slow food so take the time to enjoy it. The cocktails were wonderful, the service is impeccable, and the food is beyond description. We were there to celebrate a birthday and all I did was let the restaurant know from the note on the Open Table reservation. Tigelleria went as far as personalizing the menus and provided a special birthday greeting on the dessert plate, very nice touch. Highly recommended.

  • gnocchi unlike any other
    JulieYVIP
    Dined on 9/4/2014
    I never order gnocchi because they are so heavy -- like a glob of glue ( I'm not Italian so I don't appreciate them). My daughter ordered them here (they come with shreds of crab and bits of shrimp in a pale tomato sauce). They were like little clouds!!! I can't wait to go back and have the whole dish for myself instead of just a polite taste. Also ordered one of the salume/charcuterie plates -- loved the braesole, sopresetta and prosciuttto. Had both the choc salume and the meringata for dessert. The sherry served with the choc salume is heavenly but ask the price before you order it. We like the meriingata even more --- not only delicious but the different textures are so interesting. Great attention from Ryan. Will go back!!!

Nice portions. The bread and spreads are a nice starter surprise as well. I'll be back.

    Dining here was a total pleasure. Finding restaurant food that's organic, delicious, and artfully plated is rare. The decor is tastefully done, making dining at Tigelleria that much more enjoyable. The servers were attentive and informed. Of course, organic is more expensive -- it's real food. Well worth the prices charged. I've told several people about this restaurant and plan to return again & again.

    We have been to Tigelleria before, and based on the amazing meal we had there, went back. We could only get a reservation on a Sunday. And now I know why. I guess the main staff must have Sunday night off and they put the "B" (or maybe "C") team on duty. Food cooked poorly, delivered out of order, fumbling trainee staff. Just awful. Such a disappointment.
