Diner Reviews
  • "The food and service are always consistent. I'll keep coming back!"

  • "Overall we had a great experience. We had reservations @ 6:15 and when we arrived we were promptly seated. Our server was very attentive and engaged throughout our dining experience. My husband ordered the spaghetti with meatballs, which he enjoyed but couldn't finish (very generous portions) and I ordered the pasta with pesto, tomato and shrimp. My pasta was good though I felt lacked a bit of seasoning. I also would have liked to have been offered some fresh shredded Parmesan. We finished by sharing a slice of cheesecake. Decadent! :)"

  • "Nice place for a special night out. But come with a large pocket book. Not the best choice for vegetarian options."

  • "While visiting from out of state we were looking for a nice restaurant near our hotel. Online reviews led us to Tucci's. Great service, delicious meals artfully plated (scallops and lamb ragu were our choices). Desserts were memorable!"

  • "We always enjoy Sunday brunch and Happy Hour. This Saturday lunch didn't quite cut it. Not busy, but the kitchen and only server couldn't keep up. Server very pleasant but flustered. Slow getting food. No one tending bar. Table and chairs all wobbly, but they were perfectly happy to move us or find a fix. Still, we always enjoy the ambiance. Food was all good this time but not great. Salads and pastas fresh and flavorful. The patio is lovely when the weather is warmer. Restrooms are a gem. Not our best experience there, but we'll be back."

  • "Some dishes were excellent-- a salad, the scallops and mussels were all wonderful. An appetizer of proscuitto was lousy--thickly cut, cheese in chunks instead of shaved. A special NY steak was properly cooked, but tougher than it should have been with no interesting sauce and so very boring. Service was great."

  • "Really enjoyed lunch the other day! Food is fresh and well prepared. Always enjoy our meals here! The burger was excellent, and the fries were addicting!"

  • "Birthday dinner for Wife. She ordered the carbonara and I had the mushroom risotto with duck and truffle oil. both meals were excellent and our waitress was friendly and attentive, just the right amount. She even chased us down outside the restaurant to give me my leftovers. Above and beyond the call of duty. Great experience."

  • "thoroughly enjoyed meal and our waitress, Jennifer, was excellent - felt a little rushed by after server removing plates we had not finished! had a 7pm reservation and experience was leisurely but still felt rushed as it approached (did not reach) the 9pm closing hour."

  • "I have been here about a dozen times. The experience has varied greatly but the food is always good. It is worthwhile to request a special table as it can be noisy. Tell them you are celebrating something and would like to be seated with their top server, is all I have to say. The guy we had was somewhat negligent and it really affected the experience. However, it's one of my favorite restaurants in LO so I will try again! Bugatti's, in West Linn, has surpassed them though. Check it out!"

  • "We celebrated a birthday at Tucci. The atmosphere was splendid. It could easily be an intimate/romantic spot. The restaurant was full but the noise level was low so we could hear each other speak. The service was outstanding. Our waiter was attentive and polite. The papardelle are great and the salad that comes with dinner is delicious. My octopus was disappointing so I will order the mussels next time (and there will definitely be a next time!). I look forward to sampling everything on the menu, eventually! This is an excellent restaurant for casual or intimate dining. Lake Oswego is fortunate to have this gem in their midst. Good luck, Tucci. I hope you are here to stay! The soft Italian music in the background was very enjoyable. -Paula"

  • "We dined at lunch on Monday. There were maybe four or five small parties dining. Our service was mostly absent. We had to flag people down for beverage refills. No one asked how our meal was Or if we needed anything else. No dessert was offered. We needed flag and ask. When more hot water was requested for tea no offering of another tea bag. The minestrone soup was marvelous with a hint of pepper. We split a crab avocado sandwich and left hungry. It was a very small open faced sandwich on one piece of bread about six inches long. Barely enough for one person. It would have been helpful if the server had warned us. The menu description certainly didn't help. Perhaps this is an issue only at lunch."

  • "We met our friends, who are very experienced dining out people, at this restaurant at our suggestion. We are usually nervous about making suggestions to them, but this worked out great. We all enjoyed our meal and will come back to Tucci's. I especially like the restaurant in the summer when we can sit on the patio."

  • "Tucci has hard working staff and management that make every visit a pleasure. Prices seem to have crept up slightly in the last few years, but hopefully have now stabilized. Not expensive considering the quality anyway."

  • "Very cordial service with a smile. The portobello panini was excellent but the accompanying fries were limp and greasy. Crab bruschetta was also very tasty. The wine list is well priced and many choices of italian wines."

  • "We dine regularly at Tucci, and have always had a great experience. The food, service, and level of expertise makes it great for both regular and "occasion" dining. We were unsure of a wine choice so the server brought us several to taste; we were able to find just the right one."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Tucci's is a feel good restaurant. The ambiance is warm, lighting just right, the wait staff friendly and welcoming, the menu delicious, martinis just the way we like them. Calamari crisp with delectable sauces, rustic bread with flavored oil for dipping, accommodating for younger visitors. It is my favorite local go-to place for a guaranteed delightful evening. I always order pasta with ragu, and it never disappoints. There's great comfort in knowing you will always find recognizable favorites, well prepared food and guaranteed good times for all ages."

  • "My wife an I often split entrees. Usually the staff will split the entree in the kitchen and bring it on separate plates. At Tuccis they brought out the entree on one plate and gave us separate plates to split it our selves. Not absolutely unacceptable except that the table was very small and with a bottle of wine, wine glasses, bottle of water, water glasses, and the entree plate and two smaller plates, it was less comfortable than an airplane. Food was OK, but potatoes were runny. Service was great; our server did the best he could with what he had to work with. We have been there for lunch on several occasions and had a good experience"

  • "Terrible service. Food was so so. Last year we celebrated our annual Christmas lunch and this year it was a HUGE disappointment from how we were greeted when we checked in to waiting on our check at the end."

  • "Beautiful dining room, bar, lighting, furniture and table settings. A pleasant street setting in Lake Oswego. Patio looks like it would be good spot in summer (we were there on a cold winter night). Our diners had the salmon, chicken marsala, the pappardelle and a pork dish (can't remember the name) was the best entrée. The salmon and marsala were also good. The side dishes were especially good like the kale, couscous. The big disappointment was the pappardelle. The pasts was overcooked and the ragu was mushy and kind of greasy. Our waitress was not especially welcoming, seemed distracted, not. The prices were leaning toward expensive. But, the overall experience was positive and we would come back and just give a different pasta a try."

  • "Over-priced! The $25 pasta with shrimp featured FOUR medium shrimp. The lamb pasts---"Where's the Lamb????". We were hustled through quickly---guess there were people waiting for our table. I saw a waiter take a plate from a man who was still eating!! He grabbed it back. The waiter waited for him to finish! No class at all!!!"

  • "My husband and I had brunch at Tucci's recently (on a Sunday). We enjoyed our meals but for some reason, when the chef finished the entree & set them under the warmer, they sat there for quite a few minutes. We could see the 'action' from where we were sitting. Anyway, by the time my eggs benedict was delivered, one of the 2 eggs was no longer soft and had to be returned/redone. Had to flag down a different waiter to get it taken care of but when it was delivered, it was - as usual - great. We love the quiet ambiance as well as the finessed spices & flavors in their food. A definite gem in our book."

  • "Three couples went to Tucci's before going to the Lakewood Theatre. We were all extremely pleased with the inviting atmosphere of the restaurant and the excellent wait staff. Our waiter was helpful, friendly and efficient without hovering over us. I had one of their special martinis with limoncello; it was terrific. I had checked online beforehand and read that the cabbage rolls were excellent. Although there were many items on the menu that I could have ordered, I did choose the cabbage rolls. They were delicious!! I was the only one who did not order dessert, but all who did were delighted that they did!! I will be most eager to return to Tucci's in the future."
