There were 2 larger parties in the room that were very loud. It was difficult to have a conversation. Otherwise it was great.

They do make some of 'em like they used to - TT is one of the few places you can still go to get top quality house made dishes prepared and presented by people who care about you and about what they do. The rooms are "rustic" to be sure - this is a simple neighborhood Italian restaurant like they all oughtta be! The four of us split orders of mussels, calimari, and clams before enjoying our main courses. Everything was outstanding - an order each of osso bucco, pork chop, pescatore, and pasta left us very happy (and with barely enough room for 2 orders of cannoli). Wonderful as always!

Warm service and the best Italian food I have ever tasted. Grandmother's secret recipe chocolate cake melted in my mouth. We are absolutely returning. Just sad I forgot to bring home my leftovers.

Undoing my prior “bad” review, as apparently I did receive a voicemail message but never received it! I LOVE this restaurant and will be back soon. Literally the best vegetable lasagna I’ve ever had. And do yourself a favor, get the chocolate cake!!! And even the vanilla cake!!

Eileen- Thank you for your review. You were contacted the morning of your reservation, however your mailbox was full, leaving us unable to leave a message. The chef/ owner had to go into emergency heart surgery over the weekend, which is why we had to close on Sunday.We are a family run restaurant and our main concern was our fathers health at this time. Thank you for your understanding.

Excellent dining spot in Conshohocken. Our party of three all indulged in the delicious OssoBuco with broccolini di rapi. Good service and the price for the quality of food was exceptional. Kudos to the chef, Vincent.

Everything about this BYOB is fantastic. Victoria makes sure our entire group is always pleased. The kitchen goes above and beyond to accommodate my “clean” way of eating.

We have been making this a weekly visit and look forward to many more terrific nights.

Went here for NYE. Wasn’t aware there was a set menu with no prices listed. Not a good selection of entres for an authentic Italian restaurant. Barely touched dinner and were totally taken back by the very expensive bill. Almost $200 with tip. One and done!

Rich- I am sorry that you had that experience with us. We pride ourselves in offering a huge selection of Italian classics with an upscale approach. On New Years Eve, being a BYOB, it is important for us to offer a fix-price menu. I am sorry you were unaware of this, you should have been informed. I hope if you ever do choose to dine with us in the future you will be impressed with our extensive menu, as most of our long time patrons are.

Went here for NYE. Only the chefs menu was available which was fine by us until we realized when we got the bill it would cost $100 per person (and this is a BYO). The food was good. Not great and definitely not worth the price tag. Probably won’t go back again. The server was decent but we didn’t have water for most of our meal which was a disappointment.

Amazing Italian fine dining gem- just a hair off the beaten path. A wonderful BYOB that allows you to choose the beverage pairings. We were a table of six- the food and service were outstanding. This was my first time and will definitely return.

This was our second visit. The table was great. The service was pretty good although I don't believe the server new exactly everything about the menu. The sauce on my dish was way overbearing. I questioned it before I ordered it was explained to me that it was not going to be excessive and it just ruined the dish.

One of our favorite restaurants. Family owned and operated it is the perfect place to have a business lunch, a quiet dinner with your family or to celebrate happy occasions with extended family. They do everything well. Vince knows how to cook and always keeps the customers happy with plenty of well prepared dishes. His wife and daughters run the front of the house and make everyone feel welcome. Highly recommended and bring your favorite wine as it is BYOB.
