Tino's is the best Italian food in Columbia (probably Howard County), hands down. Every thing I've had there is delicious. Our favorites are the lasagna and the Chesapeake shrimp. The restaurant is always bustling and the staff are friendly. Don't let the fact that it's in a strip mall fool you!

We were in the Columbia area last Sunday so we decided to meet friends and celebrate my birthday there with an early dinner. The reviews were so good for Tino’s we gave it a try - and we were all delighted with our experience. From start to finish I can only find praise. Creamy delicately fried rice balls to start. Memorable house salad. Awesome create your own pasta with gnocchi. Delicious red wine suggestion from the menu. Outstanding desserts including Tiramisu and cannolis. Kind and generous service from a staff member who loves her job. Who could ask for anything more? If I lived closer, I’d be there once a week!

Tinos is a great place! It never disappoints. The food is fabulous, especially the seafood dishes. They give very generous portions, as well. The italian ceasar salad is very tasty, Great wine selection. If your questioning what wine to get, the owner, Lance, is happy to recommend one and tell you all about it. And, dont forget an order of the truffles for dessert!!!

We love going to Tino's. The food is consistently good on every visit. The only issue we had on this visit is that our server seemed overwhelmed. We only saw her twice during our meal and had to wait for a second glass of wine. Not a huge deal it just would have been nice to have it while we were still eating.One other table near us gave her a hard time about it. Regarding our food, the portions were HUGE! Enough for lunch the next day. We'll definitely return.

The service and food were the best. It was a tad noisy but you could hear the discussions at a booth with 6 patrons without shouting. The prices weren't cheap but they matched the quality of the food. It was our first visit but not the last. The location is good for DC and Baltimore residents as well as those in Columbia.

We dined here on Holloween and enjoyed the staff costumes (esp. Elvis!). I enjoyed my Baked Lasagne and my wife enjoyed her Baked Ziti took home 1/2 for lunch the next day. Our meal with 2 glasses of Cab-Sav, totaled $65 before gratuity. Our server was friendly and attentive. Lots of free parking in the strip mall.

This place is a hidden treasure in Columbia MD. The food and customer service was excellent. The food tasted authentic and did not require any extra seasoning. I live 30 miles from this restaurant and it did not disappoint. I plan to return with friends for a nice lunch/dinner.

We had a great experience at Tino's. It was the first time we'd been there since it was Strappazza--yes, a long time ago! But we were really pleased with our dinner. The food was terrific, the service attentive, and the atmosphere friendly, warm, and welcoming. We will definitely go again!

We always liked Tino’s. Last two visits have been disappointing. Pasta overcooked unless you ask for al dente. Marsala sauce is watery and not much taste. Same with other menu items at our table. I think they should concentrate more on quality and flavor than quantity (yes, it is impossible to go home hungry.)

Food was only so-so. Decent value, but not much better than I could make from a box/jar at home. Very disappointed in seating. There were a number of open tables along the window, but we were stuck in a booth next to the kitchen. That was loud and had a breeze coming from outside. Waiter was somewhat attentive, but really didn’t seem interested.

Can you say Yum? Delightfully tasty. Service wasn't quite up to par today. . .one of my ingredients was missing from my dish and the waiter seemed MIA for a bit. Still a family favorite though

I went to Tino's on Friday evening with my friend and it was a wonderful experience. The food was fresh and delicious, the service was great, so much so that I took my Mom back for dinner the following night. I also love that it's a from scratch kitchen. Highly recommend!
