The food was good, not spectacular. The service was great. Totally attentive. The place was quiet, maybe a little dark for reading menus, but nice for dinning. Was a little concerned after checking in with the hostess before being seated, that the restaurant reported us as a no show to Open Table.

Food was great as always. I was a bit disappointed with being told that other customers were waiting for our table and being asked if we would like a seat at the bar for a drink. We spent over 200 dollars and gave a very generous tip. It was rude!

The food at this restaurant is always exceptional. We ate outdoors in the tent... it was warm enough with the heaters and comfortable and saw no difference in quality of service between being outdoors or in the restaurant. This restaurant remains a favorite.

Food and service were outstanding. There was a very loud group sitting next to us. Someone at another table finally asked them to lower the volume which they did.

The homemade gnocchi with crumbled sausage was excellent. The paccheri with pork osso bucco was also very good. I had the lamb chops which were cooked perfectly. And the bruschetta they put on the table was great

Food was exceptional! Outdoor seating is the best around; comfortable seating in a very well heated space. However, as the evening went on and the tables began to fill, the service slowed to a crawl. Our only complaint.

Cocktails and all three courses were outstanding - the only thing with early dinner the background music ranged from Pink Floyd to George Harrison. Based on the age of the guests, the background music been more appropriate.
Will still go back due to the quality of the food.

My wife & I ate in the outdoor seating area, which was perfect. The food was excellent. I ordered the salmon, and my wife had the crusted chicken. Both entrees were cooked to perfection. Cafe Testarossa is highly recommended if you're looking for romantic ambiance and excellent food. We will return.
