One of the best mining experiences I’ve had in a while. Everything we ordered was delicious, timed and served properly, and the staff was so kind and attentive.

A wonderful dining experience. Service was exceptional. The bread basket with warm crusty bread was divine. We shared tuna two ways- a light and tasty appetizer. I had fettuccine with lobster and shrimp. The pasta was perfectly prepared and the sauce paired beautifully with the seafood. My husband had pasta with sausage spinach and ricotta. He loved it. I tasted the sausage and will order that dish next time. For dessert- the best tartufo we ever had. Highly recommend.

As usual the food was very good. Unfortunately we were seated in the main dining room and there was a very loud party seated us. The shouting loud and laughter made everyone in the room uncomfortable. Testarossa has a smaller room they use for large parties and we believe they should have been seated there. The situation made the experience much less enjoyable than it could have been.
Also one of our party knocked over a drink filling the drink on the table and the pants of one of our party. The waitress who had just been to our table was about to enter the kitchen looked our way to see what happened and continued into the kitchen. We had to stop another witness for additional napkins and help. There was otherwise no offer of help or to replace the drink.
Testarossa is still a fine restaurant and we will continue to patronize them but in the future will be more careful in where we sit.

The outside is set up very well and the food is always on spot but the service was awful and the waitress was rude. We know it’s hard to get help these days so we overlooked it and just enjoyed the food and each other.

Food and service is outstanding. We selected the outside seating, which is at the rear parking area of the building and isn't that attractive from all viewpoints. The wind and sun can be uncomfortable at times.

The inside seating is very comfortable and the noise level is low.
