Server needs to be more friendly. Italian restaurant should have great bread. More wine selection by glass. Red sauce needs more complexity.

I honestly can’t believe it anybody can rate this place as having authentic Italian food! Every dish we had was mediocre. The bright spots were very friendly staff and the half-price wine night. The Caesar salad was chopped up Romain with bottled sauce and powdered Parmesan cheese, the pizza crust was really dry and tasteless, the olive oil dipping stuff for the bread was incredibly salty, my husband said the veal saltimbocca was the worst he’d ever had. My pasta was over cooked mush. Anyone who says this is good Italian food has never had good Italian food.

Have been going there for many years and everything is always outstanding. They are also very community oriented providing opportunities for fund raissers for various non profit charities.

Heard plenty of good thing for being an authentic Italian restaurant in the area. Unfortunately it didn’t live up to the expectations. Entire service crew was great. Place was packed. Which glad to see. Unfortunately food was a disappointment. Pasta dishes were bland. I can understand if cost of ingredients went up. That would be a good time to take item off of menu. Rather short changed your customer for it. If you’re charging but not serving * lump crab meat * for a Chesapeake dish. Regardless of how understanding consumers might be.

Charming little italian place with great food at very reasonable prices.
A jazz trio was performing live which made for a perfect evening!
Lovely service by young caring staff. To be repeated for sure!

A great place for ladies to gather, share a meal a bottle of wine and catch up! The build your own pasta was fantastic. The choices were plenty! Wine selection was excellent even allowing a small taste before ordering the bottle! Will definitely go here again...looking forward to a warm spring/summer evening on the patio!

We asked to sit outside and Tino's found us a good spot.
We had eggplant parmesan, Maryland crab soup and mussels.
All was delicious. They brought me plenty of napkins and lemon slices for my mussels.
Their delicious warm Italian bread with the olive oil and garlic to dip in was as always wonderful .
Tino's keeps impressing us with their great staff !!!
Surprisingly, we had live music 🎶 on a Sunday night.
Such a much needed great dinner out!
Thank you Tino's!!

We sat outside on the patio on the side of Tito’s, so it was relatively quiet. Our server was attentive and efficient. The food was great.

Long wait for food, Meatballs were tasteless, Sauce was bland, Chicken Piccata was extremely salty, Risotto tasted like boiled white rice. A second time we were disappointed in the quality of food. Unasked to be a go to place now not sure we will return.
