My friend and I had a lovely time. The wait staff was excellent , the food delicious and we were encouraged to sit and chat for as long as we liked.It was a wonderful birthday celebration for my friend We hope to go back to Tesoro in the near future.
Went with my wife and kids and had a fantastic time. The food was excellent (everything was delicious, and my son said he thought the calamari was the best he ever had) and the service friendly and prompt. Very reasonable prices, especially considering the quality of the food.
My friend and I went to Tesoro for lunch. We were greeted and seated by very courteous staff who helped us to our seats. The service was exceptional. Food served seemed to have been cooked after we ordered (steaming hot, which was most welcome). Throughout the meal the wait-staff continued to serve us most pleasantly. All tables were not taken. The ambiance was extremely appealing. We had a delightful time there. I've been to several restaurants in the DC area for many business lunches and special occasions and would rate this as the best!
take pride in food and excellent attentive service
Loved Tesoro! Food was amazing and will be definitely going back!
Tesoro is an excellent value and a neighborhood gem. The portions are ample and the staff friendly and helpful.
We went for Christmas Eve dinner. Nice local place for a quick bite at the bar. But the restaurant needs a pick-me-up. Menus are old and cracking, walls need a paint job; the word "seedy" comes to mind. The food was lackluster. The pasta fagioli was the best item we ordered; very good. The fresh mozzarella in the caprese salad was lovely, but paired with tasteless "winter" tomatoes. The ravioli had unseasoned ground veal. The cream sauce lacked the creamy, buttery flavor we expected. A bit disappointing for a holiday night out.
Hot and delicious. Fresh ingredients... pizza is awesome also the house bread.. service superb thank you for a great lunch Happy holidays !!
We came in around 10 pm... the place was busy... that's a good sign. I ordered the Ragu vetelo with house made fettuccine it was delicious... my girl friend ordered the fettuccine Mediterrana... it screams seafood.. it was very tasty..termeso for dessert was house made too. Light and not to sweet... also house bread us out of this world . 😁😁😁
We were in the neighborhood and Tesoro was across the street. One half of the space is a bar and the main seating area is to the left of the entrance. This is a fairly small restaurant, similar to many on the upper west side of NY.
I ordered the Pollo Il Tesoro and my wife had the Polo alla Regina. As we just came from a art opening we did not have any of the appetizers and we are also attempting to lose weight. The Polo Il Tesoro came with pasta. The sauce for the chicken was also used on the pasta. The chicken was very tasty the by using the Il Tesoro sauce the pasta was not overpowered. My wife's chicken was served with spinach. Everything was done properly. When we are back in this area we will stop in again for dinner.
While the food was fairly good, the service was poor. I was quite disappointed with the overall experience.
Terrible Service and Food. Never going back again.
Tesoro is consistently good. The owner and the staff are welcoming and helpful. The chef doesn't mind creating something not on the menu (within reason if they have the ingredients). We love this place.
Generally, we really like this restaurant. However, on Sunday evening (Oct 22) it was a very different experience. We had made a reservation for 6:30. When we arrived we noticed that there were several tables set up for a large group. But the waiter said that the group would not arrive until 7:30. So we thought it would be OK. We sat down and the waiter recommended a bottle of wine. We thought it was the same one we had had on several previous occasions. It must have been a different year because to tell the truth it was horrible. The veal marsala that I ordered had very watery sauce. I had wanted a pasta with white sauce but the waiter said that the pasta would be in the sauce. Then the large group arrived at 7. There were only two servers working with quite a few tables. By the time we tried to pay our bill, we waited an eternity. We finally stood up and went to the credit card machine to pay the bill. We had a gift certificate. It took a while for the waiter to figure out how to use the gift card and charge the rest of the bill. What we are trying to say is that we don't understand why the system took our reservations when there were only two servers on staff and a large group expected. Also, if the recommended wine is a different year, then it should not be suggested. And when asking for pasta with white sauce, it should be allowed.
Amazing restaurant. Loved the quality, homemade pastas and fresh ingredients. Produce from Italy and cheese from Wisconsin, Tesoro knows how to make it right. I made a reservation for 7 and the whole group loved it, from wine and appetizers to dessert. The staff was amazing; friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. I would recommend this place to everyone.
