    Dinner was delicious and the servers were very attentive. We were seated at a table for 4 as we were 4 adults, and the table seemed too small to hold the 4 small appetizer dishes, 4 water glasses, 4 wine glasses, utensils, 2 large, appetizer dishes and the bread and olive oil tray. Everything was "tight". It was too loud in the room and was difficult to hear each other. We would go again however, it will be when the weather is cooler and we can sit outdoors.

    Tavolino Ristorante is a great restaurant. The 2 young ladies at the hostess stand were very welcoming and engaging. Our server was Robert, he was very good. He immediately connected with each of us three guests. He was very good at adapting to the 3 different personalities. Plus Robert was very good at explaining the menu and he is a great ambassador of the restaurant. The food was great, thank you Culinary team !! I had a special entree request and it all worked out perfect. Thank you to everyone. Donal D.

    We felt rushed, the waiter was not a very pleasant person, seemed totally bored with everything. I asked for different silverware because the menu was placed on top of it, not sanitary by any means. Many many people handled that menu , to place it on top of utensils we would eat with is ridiculous! We will not return .

    The food is always excellent which is the sign of a great restaurant. My daughter substituted out shrimp for scallops with no issue. I had the seafood with homemade pasta and it was brilliant. My wife’s short rib was fantastic. They have a good wine list too, which is always nice.

    The food and service were excellent as usual but we were seated at a table with metal chairs that were so ugly and uncomfortable that they must have come from the Department of Corrections - odd for a white table cloth restaurant. Luckily I was able to switch with a real chair that was close by.

    Ambiance was good. Food and drink were good+. Waiter was running 5 tables which didn't allow him the band width to provide the service I'd expect. Hopefully an anomaly.

    Some of the best Italian food we’ve had in Tucson with great service and decent noise level indoors.

    My wife and I have dined multiple times at Tavolino, both with other couples and just us. Every time has been great. This last time was not. The food was still top drawer. It became quite crowded (on a Tuesday) after some time passed which may have accounted for our issues. We were lost in the shuffle when we first got there for our reservation. There only 3 or 4 tables occupied. No one even brought us water until I approached the hostess after 10 minutes went by. The young man who then came with water said there was confusion as to who had our table. The food delivery between courses was slow. It got very hot as the evening progressed and we had to ask what happened to the AC. It then got cooler. We will be back and choose to view this as an aberration. You may have been a bit short staffed due to unexpected customer levels.

    There were four of us for dinner, we weren't in a particular hurry. That having been said, the service was abysmal: drinks were slow in coming, we waited an inordinate amount of time to place our orders and, once placed, waited even longer for our meals. The veal was cooked well although it needed seasoning, the tortelloni was excellent, the seafood not so good. What was very annoying were the two small children running around the restaurant. Management should really be attentive to such things. This was the second time I've been to Tavolino. My first experience was not all that favorable; I will not be back.
