Tino's Italian Bistro
May I have another.Everything was spot on from the food to the service. I love to be able to order the pasta a sauce the way I want to. Outstanding and thank you again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove This Place!This is by far the best Italian food in the area. I have a gluten sensitivity and they actually have pasta on the gluten free menu. It's outstanding. We go here for all our special occasions.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA great little secret in ColumbiaI used to go to this location when it was Strapazza. It was OK. When the new ownership took over they remodeled the space to create virtually two separate places with an open large room along with a romantic wine bar setting. The wine bar is beautifully designed with perfect lighting and is protected from the noise of the large room. Speaking to your company is easy and comfortable. The very first time we went to this place we knew it was special. We were impressed by the menu and the service of the staff. Any restaurant can look good but if the food and service are bad it will not matter. This is not the case with Tino's. My wife and I are on first name basis with the bar area staff as that is where we always choose to dine.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA Saturday night is alwaysA Saturday night is always difficult for a restaurant, but the staff was up to the demands. We had a group of 6, so we were seated in a booth. Between us, we had a variety of wine & mixed drinks, & the bar did a great job, & prices were reasonable. All the entrees were excellent, portions were more than adequate, & prices fair. My only quibble was that the side Caesar salad needed more dressing.
There is a lot to choose from on the menu, & substitutions were no problem. I may try the pizza the next time. But, we all left feeling good about our experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Very Good! It'sConsistently Very Good!
It's our 3rd or 4th time back since it's in our backyard. Wonderful pasta dishes (frutti de mare) that are not heavy or salty. Just right portions. Wife tried the pizza this time and enjoyed that a lot too. We'll be back soon!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousMy friends and I found a new favorite restaurant. We were seated right away, the waiter was informative and patient with my husband who couldn't decide what to get b/c everything sounded so good. I ordered the special with grilled chicken, shrimp and asparagus and enjoyed every bite. The desserts were both outstanding.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful experience.We had a wonderful experience. The service was perfect! The food was wonderful!!!
