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!

We all had an awesome evening and I especially enjoyed my Sea Scallops Risotto .
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.

The food was as good as always however the service was atrocious. We were seated for 15 minutes before our waiter even acknowledged us. Then after an additional 5 minutes I finally had to get up and go to the bar to order our drinks. The bar tender who was also the manager then took our drink order and our waiter finally came and took our appetizer order. From that point on if we needed him we would either have to flag him down or ask one of the other staff members to find him. It got so bad that while we were there to celebrate a birthday we ended dinner and told them to forget about the cake which turned out to be better as our server had forgotten about it anyway. When we then asked for the check it was another 10-15 minute wait. The manager gave us one appetizer free which was an underwhelming attempt to make up for the horrific service l. It was an entirely unacceptable situation and I am not sure I will take the chance of dinner here again any time soon.

The food is always excellent, and the staff is wonderful. Last night was the first night of Covid restrictions being lifted, and happy to see the restaurant was just about full. Our server, Larisa, was very pleasant and friendly and was doing a great job taking care of many tables herself.

We are never disappointed at Caffe Tremezzo. It was a very early dinner for us (4:30) so we actually had the place to ourselves. My husband had a steak special and I had a beet salad with sautéed octopus over spinach (an appetizer special). Octopus is hard to come by and it often isn't prepared well, but this was excellent, a real treat. Finished off the dinner with one of the best cappuccinos I have ever had.

Our meal was great as it always is. We had a lovely waitress but what had me most concerned was the lack of face masks with others servers and kitchen staff. One server never kept her mask over her nose and continually pulled her face covering down below her chin and yelled and walked around the restaurant. Sadly I won’t be inclined to return unless the management takes Covid seriously.
