I can always count on the restaurant for good food. It's just a bit noisy so it's not always good for deep conversation.

Been going to Cafe Testarossa for many years. They never disappoint. Great food and a great bar. They always have some great specials on the menu and they will prepare your meal as you ask. Their hostess, Nicole is always very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend Testarossa!!!

The veal meatball sliders were fantastic. Next time I'll know to also order them for my wife so I don't have to share.

We love cafe testarossa. They make an effort to know who their regular diners are and are always very polite and offer great service. Their food is always well prepared and tasty without making you feel guilty for eating something unhealthy. We love it here and come often. We always have a nice evening here.

used to go to cafe testarosa all the time as my office was very close. was excited to go as I don't go as often as I used to. had such a great time. we had a short wait at the bar. the bartenders are so nice and make great drinks! the 2 women at the reservation table continuously come by the bar to let us know the status of our reservation, they are both so friendly! got to our table and the food was just as good as we always remember it to be. the service is top notch! the restaurant was packed and should have been loud but somehow the noise level is not bad at all!!! billy has done it so great for 30 plus years! i look forward to returning very soon!!

Wait staff was very efficient and pleasant. We were not rushed but were never ignored. Food is very good and interesting.

Very busy on Saturday evenings and the noise level is very energetic.

Two tables were incredibly loud; one man even tossed bread at his dining companion! Our waitress also brought up the noise issue to us (“Those two tables are so loud! I can’t hear any of my customers!”) but seemed to do nothing about bringing in a manager to review the situation. Her advice was to come back on a weekday! While the food was good, there was no enjoyment in dining that evening. I doubt that I’ll be back.

I go to Cafe Testarossa frequently during the week and always sit in the main dining room. On Saturday, at 6:30, they stuck us in the other room which was hot and so noisy you couldn’t hear or breathe. Evidently you need to request the main dining room no matter how good of a customer you are. FYI.

My group of six women had a very enjoyable evening. The food arrived in a timely manner and it was nice and hot. We were moved, by our consent, to a quieter, more private table in a small corner room. We were able to comfortably eat our dinners and have good conversations. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone,
