We absolutely had the best Italian food at this restaurant. We were traveling & I saw the high ratings for Tomaso’s so I made a reservation. The cocktails were wonderful, the Caesar salad was fresh & crisp with a delicious dressing, the lasagna was firm & bursting with flavor, the Osobusco was so very tender. You must have the Spumoni Bomba, it was fabulous! We were stuffed, but saw it delivered to the table next to us & had to try it. Btw we ate every bite!

I took my wife to Tomaso's for our six year anniversary because she loves Italian food. I ordered the veal special which came with frozen ravioli. I showed the waiter when he eventually made it back to our table, he apologized and brought me out some fresh ravioli. The center of the second batch was also cold. I finished my veal by the time the waiter checked back in and promised to bring cooked ravioli. The third batch was definitely cooked, pasta falling apart, but hot. The whole experience was disappointing.

First time there. Tried for Restaurant Week, nice choices. Went with a friend that said they have the best spaghetti and he ordered it again. I definitely will go back to try the spaghetti but the lasagna sure looked good also.

Great service and great food. This is one of the finest places for Italian food. The waiter for our last dinner made dinner a real experience, he was extremely funny and was one of the best. This is a must go to resteraunt for Itslina food and an awesome place for date night.

I and a friend took another friend here for her birthday because Tomaso's is our favorite Italian restaurant in town and we were not disappointed. We had a wonderful evening. The waitstaff was not only attentive, but entertaining! All the courses were delicious (e.g., definitely the best calamari in Phoenix). I definitely recommend Tomaso's, not just for special occasions, but for anytime.

Tomaso's is a classic, authentic and excellent Italian restaurant. The menu is varied and offers many great choices. All of our food was expertly prepared and the portions were generous. The wait staff is knowledgeable and offered helpful suggestions based on our input. In short, a great place. If you are in the Phoenix area, don't miss it.

Tomaso's is one of - if not the best - Italian restaurants in Phoenix. If you want authentic, consistently exceptional Italian food, with friendly staff and great service, you can't go wrong eating here. I have so many favorite dishes at Tomaso's. We love their eggplant, osso bucco, gnocchi, too many to list here. We've gone there for over 30 years and can't say enough about this restaurant.

We were visiting Phoenix area and chose Italian this evening. We could not have made a better choice. Service was right on. The braised short rib ravioli was to die for. Every plate that came out looked fabulous. Definitely would recommend and return.

Love this restaurant! The food is delicious. Service is first class. The bread is delicious and the herby/garlic butter is a winner.
The portions are very large. We had zucchini blossoms and the appetizer portion had 4 of them. I chose black spaghettini with shell fish. The only criticism: it was too much. Fantastic flavor. All of us ordered something different and everyone was happy. Desert was tiramisu. Perfection!
We shall return.

Ask for Oscar!! He took such great care of us. The anchovies appetizer and caesar’s salad are so plentiful that my husband and I shared an entree. Ask for the special “spicy sauce” instead of crushed red pepper if you like heat. It was made just for us and is to die for.

Wonderful meal! We had the calamari, spring mix salad with the perfect seasoning/dressing, Dover Sole deboned table side, and Osso Buco. Our waiter whipped up a seasoned olive oil dip for the bread and was very helpful in suggestions. Can’t wait to go back for pasta or veal dish next time!

We love Tomaso’s in Scottsdale and since they’re temporarily closed we had to visit the Phoenix location and it’s just as good! I’m an Italian and visit Italy quite often and the food here is delicious. Won’t disappoint.

Do you not let the outdated outside keep you from enjoying this most delicious meal! The bread alone with herb butter or parmesan balsamic oil would take us back! The calamari was lightly battered & so tender with the most awesome marinara sauce for dipping. The chicken parmesan with short rib ravioli & Nonna's Sunday Gravy with meatball & homemade fettucini was the absolute BEST we have ever had! Truly, you must try it. I wish they would update the exterior & interior with candlelight & maybe some hanging chandeliers to make it a little more warm, cozy & intimate. It would definitely draw in more people to enjoy this amazing food. We will definitely be going back!!!
