Overall great! Meal was good until the entree. Our veal was over cooked and tough. Also, there was a Birthday celebration and they did not offer anything to accompany our coffee. Guess we are spoiled at fine Restaurants doing so!
Great food. The only glitch was that we were served the wrong soup. We didn’t think it looked like what was described, but figured we were wrong and ate some of it. When we told the server, he said it was incorrect and They offered to send out another bowl of the correct soup, but by that time we knew the entrees would be out soon and it would have been too much food. Since it was their mistake we felt it should have been compted.
Good Evening, I was the manager present and you are correct. Our apologies for the mistake. I'd be happy to get you all an appetizer (or soup) on the house next time you all are in. Please feel free to ask for myself or Karla next time you're in and we will take care of the one item for you. We appreciate the feedback and honesty. We value your business and look forward to serving you again soon! Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
We have not been to this restaurant lately, but it was always one of our choices for special occasions.
And for my wife’s birthday, we decided to celebrate with her good friend and husband, whom have not been to Tavolino, and very interested to be there, since we spoke highly of it..
However, we were quite disappointed this time. The food was mediocre.
My wife ordered her favorite Branzino as always, the fish was slightly over cooked, and the rapini turned olive green/yellow, and it’s so tough, you couldn’t even chew it.
She finally got the attention of the server, and he just said he’d let the kitchen know... and that was it.
Any other restaurant we’ve been to, would’ve cooked another fresh version immediately, to correct the problem.
Our guests shared the special of the day, spaghetti with grilled shrimps and the shrimps were over cooked as well..but they didn’t say anything until after..
Definitely not a good dining experience from what we remembered of Tavolino.
Hello there, I am sorry to hear about the overall dissatisfaction with the meal here on Saturday evening. Lau did tell me about the Broccolini. I should have stopped by the table and of course we should have gotten you all a fresh broccolini asap. My sincerest apologies. We would like to get you all in again soon for another try. Please feel free to give me a call if and when you plan to return. We appreciate your business and value your feedback. Justin Fernandez Manager
Absolutely love this restaurant! It’s a must! Mangia!
Thank you Kathy M for the kind words. We appreciate you choosing Tavolino for your dining experience and look forward to serving you again in the near future. Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Fabulous food and service.
Thank you Vandra for making time to leave some feedback here on OpenTable regarding your recent visit. We look forward to serving you again soon! Cheers, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Amazing food that was expertly prepared and generously served.
Service is friendly and capable but also slow (not slow paced but awkwardly slow). We waited 15 minutes at least for our initial order of opening drinks to arrive. Water glasses were left in-refilled for half the mealtime.
We could hear the kitchen music (hard blues-rock) which was amusing but took away from ambiance.
Somewhat pretentious and patronizing service. Breaded veal chop not worth price & accompanying salad lacked dressing. Did not appreciate unsolicited exhortation by server to go for a more expensive wine. Pleasant environment deserves better quality food.
Hi Peter, Please check your inbox for a private message. We are sorry to hear that you didn't have a great time between food and service the other evening. We look forward to hearing back from you regarding what we can do to get you both in again here in the near future. Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Excellent three course dinner with wine, a Sunday evening special. Terrific!
Thanks for joining us on Sunday. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed the wine pairing special. Cheers, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
We visit Tavolino probably monthly. We are out of towners so we list Tavolino as one of our usual spots. This visit demonstrated why we keep returning. The food was excellent, plenty of staff smiles, and prompt everything. We will return to enjoy the event again.
Thank you Jimmy! We truly appreciate your feedback and your business. We'll see you again soon! Cheers, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Wait staff offered insight into requesting the house made pasta rather than the pene pasta they don’t make in house!what a great suggestion. Food was delicious and presentation was great!
Buongiorno, We just want to let you know we appreciate you choosing Tavolino and also for making time to leave us some feedback. You are correct, the homemade pasta is pretty awesome! Glad to hear our staff let you know about the option. See you soon! Cheers, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
While the service was great, the food was somewhat disappointing. Two of our party of 4 had lamb shank which was tender and in a tasty sauce, served over risotto. It was a generous portion, but could have used a side dish such as a vegetable to cut the richness. One person ordered the short ribs and seemed to enjoy them. I ordered the cioppino which is where the disappointment comes in. The broth was salty with little other flavor. The calamari was overcooked and the mussels were undercooked. The pasta upon which it was served did not add much to the dish. The toasted bread that accompanied the cioppino was too burnt to enjoy. If we return, we'd try the pasta dishes which other reviewers have liked.
Good Morning, As unfortunate it is to hear about the disappointing Cioppino we do appreciate you choosing us and also for leaving us some feedback here on OpenTable. The cioppino is one of our more popular dishes and we apologize for the lack of flavor with your dish on your recent visit. We do hope to see you again soon for another try. We always want to ensure the best possible experience for all of our guests. Cheers, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Excellent pasta meals.
Wine from Chef's brothers vineyard. Overall a great dining experience
This restaurant is a gem. We were in for lunch. The tortellini was the best we've ever eaten - fresh and savory tomato sauce, house made pasta - divine. The shrimp salad was even better. Fresh fresh greens and dressed with subtle flavors and cheeses. Mary, our server, was attentive and helpful. Ambience, food, service - all perfect. Highly recommend.
I ordered porchini . It came as a big block of meat. Hard and very difficult to cut with a steak knife.
Hi John, We're disappointed to hear you didn't enjoy your entree here this past Sunday. Also curious some more details on the service rating. I've passed your review along to our Executive Chef so we may address appropriately. If you'd be so kind as to provide a little more detail regarding the service aspect of the night that would be helpful. Our apologies that your experience wasn't exceptional. Cheers, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Dining at Tavolino was a great experience. The service was very fast and the waitstaff very attentive. The food was also very good.
Thank you Aissa for your review! We appreciate you choosing Tavolino. We look forward to serving you again soon! Cheers, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
We had another positive experience at Tavolino’s.
The service was good, and we received our food promptly. The staff was attentive, and they made the entire dining experience enjoyable.
We’ll be returning to Tavolino’s very soon.
Great restaurant. Great food. Great service. Love this place!!
Thanks for the kind words! We look forward to serving you again soon. Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Although we were there for the wine pairing event, the food and wine were fantastic! We are planning on doing it again next month.
Hi Shar, We're so glad you chose to attend the first stop on the wine tour. We look forward to seeing you all again soon. Cheers, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Everything was fantastic! Definitely made our anniversary over the top special!
Food and service were very good but did notice that there have been no female servers our last couple of visits. Maybe this is one of the reasons the ladies rooms are in such bad shape, because not many female employees are going in the ladies rooms and noticing the burned out lights, trash on the floor, and no toilet seat covers. This has been mentioned to me our last two visits, about a month apart, by female members of our party.
Lovely Father’s Day dinner with excellent food, nice ambiance and good service.
Thank you Bonnie for making some time to leave us feedback. Cheers to the fathers and thank you for choosing Tavolino. Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Everyone in our group enjoyed our night at Tavolino, and will definitely return
Thank you for the feedback Anne! We appreciate you choosing Tavolino. See you soon. Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
It was a great meal...celebrating Father's Day! I will return.
Good Afternoon Keven, Thank you for choosing Tavolino to celebrate Father's Day! We appreciate you making time to leave us some feedback here on OpenTable. We'll see you again soon! Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.51913
Fantastic food and service!
Thank you Vandra! We appreciate you dining with us and look forward to serving you in the future! Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
We went out with friends and had a great experience. Everyone was on top of their game. One of the helpers, Matthew Garibay was always there when we needed the littlest thing. We all had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back!
Hi Robin, Thank you for your feedback! We also shared your kind words with Matthew and the bar staff. We look forward to having you back in again soon! Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
The relaxed atmosphere was amazing, the open kitchen reminded me of being in Italy again! Chris our server was warm and inviting, knowledgeable about not only the foods and wine but the area! We just moved here from Philadelphia and I have to say it reminded me of a center city restaurant there as well! We will definitely be returning to explore more of the menu as well as the wine.
Hi Carmen, We just wanted to thank you for making time to dine with us and also to leave us a note here on OpenTable. We look forward to serving you again soon! Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Great restaurant, but this is the second time we have been told they did not have our reservation. Then we get a note from open table that we were a no show.
Good Morning, Justin Fernandez here, the manager who greeted you last night. I want to help solve the issue for you two. Would you be willing to forward me the email or call me with the details of the email so I can try and figure out with OpenTable what's happening? Let me know, I'm here to help and we appreciate you choosing Tavolino to dine. I'll send you a private message as well with my email contact info. Cheers, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Always enjoy dinning at Tavalino. Dustin is an excellent server and takes very good care of us.
Good Evening Pamela, Thank you for the kind words. We appreciate you visiting us last Saturday. We'll be sure to let Dustin know as well. Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Always great service and delish quality food. Love the ambiance too
Thanks for the feedback DanB, We look forward to having you in to the restaurant again soon. Cheers, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Our family were there to celebrate a birthday.everyone enjoyed themselves.food was great. A little pricey for a regular dinner but great for a special occasion.
great place. love the wines. Only too expensive for some pasta dishes
Food was absolutely incredible! Making a trip back just to have another meal here. Highly recommend.
Thanks for the kind words! We appreciate you taking time to leave feedback here on OpenTable. Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Enjoyed the evening. Wait staff well trained and attentive.
This was the first time, in more than a dozen visits to Tavolino, that we were disappointed in
the food. My Osso Bucco (formerly my go to dish) was tough and not as good as usual.
Robin's dish seemed like it had been under the heat lamp for a bit and wasn't as fresh and
tasty as usual. However, because this is our favorite Italian restaurant in Tucson we will definitely give
Tavolino another try.
Buonasera Rick, As unfortunate as it is to hear that your meal wasn't at the level you normally expect for Tavolino, we do appreciate the feedback so we can address the issue. I've already spoken with Chef and we will deal with it appropriately to avoid future issues. Please do let us know when you're coming in again. We appreciate your business and look forward to delivering an awesome meal and experience next time around. Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Beautiful restaurant located in the Catalina Foothills of Tucson! Delicious food, nice presentation, but the portions are huge! Not a bad thing for price/value.
Our server, Marisa, was very friendly and professional. Very nice wine list; we enjoyed two different Barberas by the glass.
Or appetizers consisted of Grilled Shrimp wrapped in Prosciutto and Beef Carpaccio.
Our main courses were Veal Chop Milanese and a Tagliatelle with Mushrooms.
Would highly recommend this Italian restaurant if you are in the Tucson area.
Buongiorno Donald, Thank you for making time to leave us a note here on OpenTable regarding your experience and time at Tavolino! We'll be sure to let Marisa know about your visit. Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
We have dined here many times and as per usual everything was done well.
Thanks for the review TjGonzo! Cheers Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
As always the service was fantastic! Everyone is attentive without being intrusive. Both of our meals were excellent, butternut squash ravioli so smooth and the lasagna wonderful. Very best Italian food in Tucson.
Wait staff is terrific! Quinn did such a fantastic job taking care of us!! The food is pretty consistent and very good. Great family place with reliable service and food!
Thank you for sharing feedback on your recent visit to Tavolino. We appreciate the kind words and will let chef and Quin know how you felt about your experience. Ciao! Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
Very good service on a busy Mother's day. Great Brushetta app and nice drinks. The pastas are wonderful and the short rib fell apart. All in All we would come back.
Hi Mark, Thank you for taking the time to write this review for us we greatly appreciate it. Hope to see you back soon. Best Regards, Karla Ma. Rodriguez Manager
We were seated at a table that was within a stones throw of the kitchen, in the middle of the floor. It was an odd place for a table. Both front doors were wide open and the breeze coming in at my back was terrible. It was Mother's Day so the place was moderately crowded. The food was just okay, nothing special. Service was okay, nothing special. Did not impress me to the point that I'd go back.
Good Morning PatL, First and foremost thank you for making the time to provide invaluable feedback on your experience with us. It goes without saying that we are incredibly displeased to hear that your time here didn't live up to the expectations that we mutual share for a dining experience. Please understand it is our goal to provide EVERY ONE of our guests with a fantastic experience every time they come to Tavolino. Ciao, Justin Fernandez Manager Tavolino Ristorante 520.531.1913
