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.

Main course was fine as usual. Bread seemed under baked which is not usual. Music came on outside at end, and it was a little too loud. I. Was not sure why it was turned on as the crowd was dwindling.
Service was great.

Nice enjoyble place to eat with good food and service. They have a lot of gluten-free and veg alternatives that I really appreciate. Lastly, afterwards there is dunkin donuts a few shops away that has everything kind of ice cream.

While taking a little longer than expected, our meals were prepared to our liking. Even though calamari was not on the menu, our server made sure we had what we wanted. Server was pleasant and present.

Authentic Italian food, from spaghetti meatball dish to fantastic pizzas. You can create your own pasta and pizza. They also serve up a great regional crab soup.
If you want good Italian this is your place!

Tino's had live music in the dining room on the evening we dined. Very nice touch. The waiter was attentive and professional. He brought bread to our table almost immediately.
We ordered the Arancini as an appetizer, it was fluffy and fried to perfection. My wife had angel hair pasta with alfredo sauce and broccoli. The sauce was okay, it needed more garlic. I had the baked ravioli, they were homemade with just enough cheese and sauce to make the dish taste great. For dessert we ordered the chocolate cake and tiramisu. They were out of cake. The tiramisu, though, was delightful. A hint of coffee and liqueur. This is a neighborhood gem and we will be back again soon.

Tino's is always amazing. I've been many times over the years, and I have never had a single bad experience. Their penne vodka is my fiancée's favorite, and I always like either that or the veal saltimbocca. Tonight, we also had the best server ever. Nelson was easily the best server I've ever had at a restaurant, and was an absolute charm to have. It's very rare to feel so tended to and welcomed on a busy saturday night, be Nelson made sure that everyone was feeling great.
