Cold, predictable Italian fare. No heartfelt acknowledgment of our special, 90 year birthday occasion—not even a candle. The place seems to be going downhill.

Food took forever to arrive and it was cold. Clearly had been sitting out for at least 20 minutes. We complained and we given two tiny inadequate plates of profiteroles for a table of 9 people as compensation.

My two daughters and I came in for a celebration dinner. From appetizers to dessert, the food was delicious! Our hostess/server, M'Kensie was accurate, attentive without being obtrusive, personable, and knowledgeable about the dishes and wine. She's a gem. We'll be back.

The bread was the only good thing. My husband had veal parm. It was cold and looked burnt the worst he ever had.I had the fettuccini alfredo it was average. Would never go back.

We were celebrating a co-worker's retirement and this was the location he selected. They picked a perfect location in the restaurant to make it feel like a private event and accommodated our special needs. The food was great, we got three personal songs which were very beautiful.

My husband and I went here to celebrate our 7th anniversary. The food and service was amazing and very authentic. We had a very good time trying many different menu items. My husband and I are vegetarian and the menu was clearly labeled with which options were vegetarian. I highly recommend their gnocchi! It was so good!

Great dining experience!

We scoped out Tucci's as a place to celebrate our sixth anniversary. It did not disappoint! Atmosphere, service, experience were fantastic, and food was absolutely delicious. We had italian cream sodas to drink, the spinach dip for an appetizer, and both ordered pastas for our entrees.

We live about 90 minutes out from SLC but we'll definitely be finding ways to go to Tucci's again!

My husband and I enjoyed dining here and wondered why we haven’t tried this restaurant before. The atmosphere was pleasant and our waiter was attentive. The food seemed a little old fashioned, but was still good. The bread was outstanding. I ordered the chicken Parmesan, my husband the veal Parmesan. They were served with a side of pasta in a creamy sauce and a side of fresh vegetables. We also ordered soup beforehand. I had the minestrone while my husband tried their new sausage and potato soup. Mine left something to be desired. His was good, but slightly watery. We both ordered a dessert as well. I had tiramisu which was extremely large and rich. It came covered in cocoa powder, which needed scraped off to be edible. My husband had the “apple pie”, his was wonderful. So what I’m trying to say is, this place can be great, but some options are better than others.

You can basically assess the overall quality of an Italian restaurant based on how they make and stage the chicken parmigiana. If they put the sauce on TOP of the chicken, thumbs down. If they put the sauce on the bottom, thumbs up! (So that the chicken patty stays crisp and unaltered). The sliced mozzarella that is supposed to adorn the chicken patty should be fresh too. Not only was my patty topped with the sauce, (and soggie) it was absolutely the most disgusting sauce I've ever tasted. The sauce is supposed to be made with chopped tomatoes and fresh basil, not tomato paste (or whatever that was). That simple. Hopefully, they will read this and adjust their sloppiness. The ciabatta bread was baked to perfection and the wine was delicious!

Tucci's is a cute restaurant but I feel their pasta wasn't very tasty for the price we paid. I loved the bread, loved the salad, but the main course you should love, and I didn't.

This restaurant is one that my wife and I have fond memories of since we got married. In fact one of the nicest Christmas Eve experiences we had was before we had kids and went there for dinner. The food is amazing and I cannot remember a meal that we didn't like. My favorite is the Linguine Alle Vongole. The clams are perfect and there is just enough of a kick from the red pepper to spice it up but not take away from the flavor. The service is almost always above exception however on this last visit the server did forget to bring the appetizer we ordered. This was one time in 18 years though so I certainly don't think it's a thing that happens often. I take my management team there every year to show my appreciation and they love it too. I HIGHLY recommend Tucci's for any special occasion or just a quiet night out with someone special. I also recommend using Open Table to get your reservation. It is so simple and easy to do.

I like to go to Tucci's with my family. It's a bit on the spendy side, but Papa Tucci's hospitality makes it worthwhile. Make sure you have time for a leisurely lunch or dinner when you go.

The menu looked good so we invited clients for dinner. Our server was attentive at first, but it took a while to get our drink order. The mozzarella balls were delicious. Our clients enjoyed their dinner. I had the chicken parm and it was good, but a little bland. The warm bread was good and it has a nice atmosphere. We had a good time.
