This is my new favorite restaurant. I have yet to order something that I don’t like.... including the fish - and I don’t usually like fish!

Where to begin? I haven’t been out to a restaurant in many months and the outdoor setup felt safe and comfortable. The tent had one side completely open, large standing heaters were in abundance, tables were well spaced apart, and outside air was filtered throughout. That’s saying a lot from a person who will leave a restaurant if I don’t feel safe. Our waiter Ryan and his assistants were outstanding! So friendly, attentive, funny and following all safety guidelines. Food was delicious and our waiter’s recommendations were spot on. Definitely recommend!

Restaurant was cold and not enough lighting to read menu. Had to ask the waitress to increase the heat which didn’t happen. They did manage to increase the lighting so we could see the menu. Bathroom toilet was clogged and no soap.
Food was outstanding though ! Waitress seemed rushed to get the order-not a very quiet and relaxing environment. Would only go there again for the food.

It was my son’s birthday and I checked off it was was I booked the reservation. The hostess asked who’s birthday it was and there was a handwritten note on the table wishing him a happy birthday. It was very sweet & such a nice personal touch.

Very fancy, but not to fancy to make your anxiety go up, and make you afraid to sneeze lol. Service was amazing. Food was even better. Cook knew what he was doing for sure. Definitely a place for a date or a nice dinner with the family. Enjoy if you go

We went to Testarossa for dinner last night and it was delicious! some of the dishes we had were grilled octopus, black linguine with calamari and shrimp, lamb chops, yummy shrimp dish and bronzino amazing, everyone was very happy with their food, actually the best we had in a long time. It was way to cold to eat outside so we ate inside and felt comfortable and safe .

I have been to Cafe Testarossa several times and have never been disappointed. The food is absolutely delicious and very creative. Some of his dishes are his, Billy Sansone’s, creations. You just don’t find them anywhere else. the outdoor dining (we were in a tent) was warm and inviting - with many heaters spread around so you really didn’t realize you were outside. The pricing was on target - can’t complain. I highly recommend Cafe Testarossa - you just can’t go wrong
