Tigelleria Organic Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We have been here before on many occasions and usually have been very satisfied. Unfortunately this visit was far below par. Service was poor, slow, unresponsive, and the food at best was mediocre.
The lasagna I had was very average salty and not very satisfying. My wife's cannelloni was overcooked and had obviously been sitting under the heat lamps for longer then needed prior to serving.
It was obviously a busy night but managing clients, staff, quality of food and service are all of what restaurants are about.
I expect more from this Restaurant. It may be a while before we try them again.
We've been to Tigelleria a number of times and have always enjoyed the food. The decor and ambiance is very nice as well. I have always felt that it was on the expensive side, particularly for the portion size.
Thursday night the service was extremely slow to begin with (I had to go find our waitress 15 min.s after the other guests arrived so we could place a drink order). Service improved after I spoke to our waitress, but we then experienced a very long delay (20+ min.s I'd guess) for our entrees to arrive after ordering them.
It wasn't our intent to have a 3 hour meal the other night, but that's what it turned into.
I would recommend Tigelleria to a friend, but with the warning that service may be slow.
As always, we love coming here for dinner. This time, I set up a surprise birthday dinner for my husband and as usual Tigelleria took such good care of us. The food is spectacular and we loved the newly designed menu for the season. The service is wonderful too. We will always be back!
When we arrived the waitress had said she called me to verify our reservation and I didn’t answer. I didn’t have any missed calls. Wasn’t a big deal because she got our table together quickly. The food was good, not great. Towards the end of our lunch the waitress told us that we needed to leave. It was 2:40 and they were closed. I felt like it was extremely rude to ask someone to leave. I did like the food but I will not be returning.
We returned to Tigelleria (after several years ) recently to celebrate a family birthday. We had a nice table for the five of us, one being a 7 year old well behaved child. Our waiter seemed indifferent and aloof throughout the entire evening. We were informed that they would not do a child portion of anything. Really a restaurant that specializes in pasta not willing to do a small portion of pasta with butter? My husband ordered gnocchi with seafood and reported that while the gnocchi was soft and perfectly cooked, there was very little seafood in the dish. I ordered the branzino which was well prepared and very tasty, though pricey. My son had Nonnies lasagna which he said was filling and very rich with cheese. Our other guest had a filled pasta which she reported as okay. We shared an appetizer platter, had no alcohol, salads, or desserts and the bill was well over $200. Even though I personally checked in with our waiter to indicate my sons birthday there was no recognition of any sort made. As the evening wore on the music volume increased to the point we could no longer converse comfortably. We were very disappointed by the experience at Tigelleria.
Expensive for the value, 26.00 for a plate of pasta. The drinks were 15-17.00 dollars, and the drink I ordered was not supposed to have soda water in it but they ran out of an ingredient and did not say. To be fair they took it back but I don't like having to send something back. Overall too expensive for what was offered.
The reason why our most recent dinner at Tigelleria was so disappointing was that we were very excited to take some overseas visitors there to taste some great Italian food after two wonderful meals we had at this restaurant last year. So expectations were quite high, and frankly, every dish was a disaster. The wait staff were as wonderful as we remembered, so we didn’t make a fuss, but we were literally embarrassed after bragging about how good this food would be. Maybe it was an off night.
Very disappointing. We used to come here pretty regularly but the quality, service, and pricing have all gone down. We started with the croquettes and the charcuterie plate. The croquettes came out cold, the charcuterie was fatty and stringy, and the tigelles that used to be light and fluffy are now dense and heavy... $30+ for a small plate of pasta. We had to ask for the bill as the server's seemed to disappear periodically, and when the bill finally came out they "accidentally" charged us for 3 bottles of wine when we only had 2.
I had forgotten about this lovely restaurant. Really enjoyed my cannelloni. They took my bread away while I wasn't looking, so hold on to your small plate! It's a bit of a splurge with two glasses of Prosecco and only a main course and yet made it more of a special occasion for me and my friend.
We thought the food was fabulous and would go back again for that reason. The flavors were all standout, this is not anywhere near average Italian, this is high quality Italian, authentic but also unique. The restaurant is nicely decorated, however, it falls short in ambience because of a combination of inattentive/ lacking service and somewhat loud, overbearing 80s music playing on the speakers. There was only one person servicing the front of the house, perhaps he is the [tired] owner? He acted as host, waiter and bartender. He wasn't frazzled, rather calm and somewhat indifferent. Indifferent to patrons entering the restaurant, indifferent to taking drink and food orders - although he did engage when we asked for a recommendation. All of this wouldn't really have mattered if it hadn't taken ONE full hour before or appetizers arrived! The host/waiter/ bartender was apologetic when we brought this to his attention, and it seemed as if he woke up a bit. He brought us a drink on the house, and immediately our appetizers arrived. Five minutes later our entrees arrived while we were just starting our appetizers. What saved the day was the delicious food. We started with the carpaccio di tonno. The yellowfin tuna was paper thin and the combination with the fried capers, caperberries and well seasoned cherry tomatoes was delicious. We equally enjoyed the spinach and pesto salad, which balanced the salty carpaccio appetizer. The salad portion was large enough for us to easily get our fill. Both entrees, pappardelle con salmone and lasagna della nonna were made with house made pasta, which is what made them standout. I was skeptical of the cherry tomatoes on the pappardelle, but they turned out to be very tasty. We finished the evening sharing a frozen meringue that had the most delicious morello cherries and sauce. All on all, we would go back, especially to try more appetizers.
I don't really care if a restaurant is 'organic' or not. I can't ell the difference, and frankly, I don't think my body can either. My enthusiasm for Tigelleria is based solely on the excellent, creative cuisine it serves. The restaurant is small and quiet, attentive staff and, obviously, a brilliant kitchen crew. My husband had Chateaubriand and I had gnocchi with crab and shrimp. Alas, I could not eat all of the generous portion. The Chateaubriand disappeared quickly.
I highly recommend this as an outstanding place for lunch or dinner.
We had a wonderful evening, but the food was very underwhelming and for the quality expensive. The highlights were the little hot bread rounds with hummus, oil and balsamic and extensive wine and cocktail offerings. The blackberry margarita and wines were perfect. For appetizers; the bruschetta was average, but the octopus carpaccio was rubbery and almost tasteless. For the main course, I had the mixed grill with polenta. The meats were cooked to order, but without any character. We passed on dessert. Of the five diners, no one remarked on the memorability of the food and for $400 plus dollars, I would expect some fond memories. There are too many other restaurant choices in the Campbell area for us to return here.
Think this restaurant is slipping or perhaps the executive chef was not working for lunch. Pasta was cooked well and perfectly al dente, but the carbonara otherwise was so salty and very liquidy yolk to be virtually inedible. Salads were barely okay but one wasn't dressed as described on menu wIth lemon juice.
