First time visitors. Have been looking for a great, local Italian restaurant and we found it! Excellent apps, meatballs and arrancini, and scallop risotto was perfect. Service excellent. Wonderful meal and experience.

Food was very good but service is terrible. Our server did not come over for at least 15 minutes while we sat with no menu and no silverware. They also need better ventilation. There was smoke and burn smell. My eyes were stinging. It’s too bad because the food was very good. Hope they get their act together

This little gem in Dedham (formerly Isabella’s) has a terrific chef. The salmon was perfectly cooked with wonderful Brussels sprouts and broccolini. My friend ordered lamb chops over spinach and she said they were excellent.

The only criticism is that only some of the servers were wearing masks and there was no social distancing.

I highly recommend this restaurant.

Met with three friends for Friday night dinner. Although the restaurant was busy, we were immediately seated at the time of our reservations. The waitstaff was all young and, apparently, not very experienced. Despite that, they were attentive and pleasant, although our waiter did forget one of the appetizers. All the food was tasty, well prepared and the servings were more than adequate. We all agreed that we would return to try other menu selections.

Food was great, especially the eggplant appetizer!
Service was slow, I think they were understaffed. The people there were working hard to do the best they could.

One diner in our group had their order messed up. Took forever for it to be fixed.
By the time he got his food the rest of us were done. Waitress was vey frazzled covering a lot of tables. My food was very good. I had the sea bass. Other folks in our group were satisfied. We most likely would not go back.

Although the food was consistently good, I would not recommend the lobster ravioli. Service was very slow probably because of the short staff trend due to Covid.

We come here often and every dish we've had is great. From oysters to sole to lamb they do entrees and apps very well. The atmosphere is always quiet and clean and they recently have lots of tables outside also. Every server we've had is so friendly and knowledgable.

Food was very good, from the bread to the salads (over dressed a bit), and meatballs. Carbonara was good but very rich. It was empty on a Sunday night. The waitress was nowhere to be found after bringing the entrees.

The food was amazing. We were all very pleased with our food. Service was excellent. It was a Sunday night so not too busy. We sat inside. Outdoor dining was available but be aware it’s the sidewalk. We love Dedham center for dining options that aren’t large chains.

Very good experience Thursday night at 6 PM. Not very busy but busier an hour later when we were leaving. Our server Kayla was attentive and helpful.
We shared a Caesar Salad which they offered to separate for us on two smaller plates. It was more than adequate for the tow of us. My wife had a nicely prepared piece of grilled swordfish served with fingerling potatoes and spinach. I had Ciopppino -- very nice, somewhat spicy tomato broth with lots of shellfish, and no white fish filler. Lots of mussels, about 4 or 5 shrimps, probably 3 very good sea scallops, and one medium size lobster claw, plus some small clams, and served with toasted Rustic Italian bread. Wine list is short but enough range and fairly priced. I'll be back.

Tremezzo is always consistently good. They have seasonal apps such as stuffed zucchini blossoms. Their specials along with their regular menu have always been delicious. Noise level is pretty low so you can hear conversations at your table without having to yell. Highly recommend.

Might have just been an off night but service was beyond slow. Tables who got there after us ate, drank, and left before we got our dinner. Two of our meals were cold/lukewarm at best. Almost two hours for a meal that should have taken one.

Food was extremely good! Because every restaurant is having difficulties finding servers we will give them a pass on service. The lighting definitely needs improvement and we were cold most of the evening.

Cafe Tremezzo was a lovely experience. The service and food were excellent. Small items, like the bread brought to the table was kind of skimpy (we asked for more and got about 4 small slices for 4 people, and the portions of the entrees were generous, but the accompanying pasta was skimpy. Guys! Pasta is 'way cheaper than the veal, clams, the meat part of the dish. Why skimp on the pasta? Even visually, the pasta dishes weren't generous-looking, but the two people who got pieces of fish received large portions. Puzzling.
Otherwise, things were very enjoyable.

Can't wait for COVID aid to end so people can get back to work! Caffe Tremezzo was clearly understaffed but had a great team getting through dinner rush together. The wine was great, but cocktails weren't tasty. Gnocchi was mediocre, but the rest of the dishes were great!

Our waitress, Stacy, was a joy, being happy and attentive. We purchased a gift

The food was amazing, the staff was friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was relaxing. As a family we don’t eat out regularly, this occasion was a double birthday celebration. A complimentary dessert and a birthday song finished off a great evening.

Tremezzo is a local establishment for my wife and I to have "Date Night", and it provides us both with a great atmosphere to chat and unwind. In addition, they have the Best hostesses with just the right amount of attention to your table !! The bar and the kitchen top off the experience with the Best cocktails and delicious food. A definite go to place.
