Service is prompt and attentive as an appetizer we always get a pizza, excellent and what you do not eat they will rap to go so at home the food continues. Lunch steak is outstanding. My son and I try to go every other week. Fish choices are always fresh and cooked to perfection.

The food was delicious and timely. The wait staff were gracious and timely responsive to all our needs. The valet staff were struggling to keep up with the exiting customers and were reasonably keeping up with the flow.
Our only criticism is that the noise level become very loud as the evening progressed. May I suggest acoustical tiles on the ceiling?

Food was amazing. Pasta was the best or right there as good as I ever tasted. Had the ravioli and my friend had the lobster and shrimp with pasta. Noise level was to much and nobody that works there was kind enough to ask the boisterous table next to us to keep it down. Guess some people just don’t get out enough idk

We went for an office holiday lunch. The food was very good as was the service, but a bit pricey. Lunch pricing was much like a dinner menu. But, we all enjoyed it very much and would surely return.

Reservations set for 6:30pm were met right on time and we were back in the car heading home by 7:50pm having had cocktails, appetizers, main courses, and dessert/coffee service for $180/couple with tip. There is efficient service ... and then there is Cafe Testarossa where 12-cylinder speed reigns supreme.

Appetizers including the Tomato and Mozzarella are recommended. Ask the server to slow down at this point and you will find a better experience.

The Shrimp and Spinach main course was extra flavorful while the medium rare Steak was average. A coconut infused Creme Brulee was an interesting twist on a classic.

During the holiday season, dining with friends and loved ones is a gift in itself. Cafe Testarossa needs to take their foot off the throttle and slow down to allow their patrons to enjoy the view.
