Wow, I didn't think such fabulous Italian food existed in Phx. I could eat the minestrone soup daily, full of beans and luscious broth. The lasagna special was rich and meaty. The chicken parm was moist with just the right amount of tomato and cheese. And the atmosphere reminds me of those endearing NYC places that are the backbone of the city. Plus there was great music.

You cannot go wrong in this restaurant service the food the ambience is amazing. I must go to wall in Phoenix. The wait staff especially Stephen was brilliant. On Friday evening they had an amazing jazz quartet.

I’m an Italian from Brooklyn. The quality and the taste of their food is magnificent. I must go to in Phoenix. There is no better Italian restaurant.

My family and I went on a road trip to Arizona Thanksgiving week. We looked on Open Table for a restaurant that we could have dinner at on Thanksgiving Day. We found Tomaso's and booked it. What a wonderful evening we had. The food was delicious, everyone found something on the menu that appealed to them. In addition the five course Turkey dinner, they offered an Italian menu with many choices.
The service was terrific with all of our needs anticipated and met. Everyone was friendly and made us feel at home on this very special Family holiday away from home.

Really nice Italian place. Calamari was fantastic, ravioli dish was unusual and really good. Spouse labeled Shrimp with linguine, “Fabulous.” The ambiance is traditional and so is the service. That is good and again the spouse raves.

Our server rarely acknowledged us (two women...) and when he did there was no real personality and the impression we walked away with was simply a lack of interest. The food was good but not great. I was disappointed as the location and quiet atmosphere are good for a business lunch.

This was a fantastic dining experience as we celebrated my friend’s birthday. The wine selection is great with a great range of prices along with different countries- selected a reserve for Chianti and it was outstanding. The chicken Parmesan and the short rib ravioli were delicious and my friend’s meal was fabulous too. Aveo, our waiter, made the night very special. He was friendly, helpful, and very efficient in that the meal was paced perfectly. He also has a very kind demeanor. I probably misspelled his name, but I will find him the next time I dine there as I would want him as my waiter. He made the night a charming experience for my friend’s birthday.

The waitstaff is always friendly, knowledgeable, and timely. LOVE the food. We had a late dinner so it wasn’t busy (we missed the rush). The ambiance was just perfect! This has become one of our favorite date night spots.

First time I've been there in many years - food was as good as I remembered. I had all shell fish, and, while very good, it was all so chewy like shell fish is. My wife had a special - ravioli that was truly outstanding!! We definitely will go back again!!!

I would always recommend Tomaso's for the ambience and food. Our evening was a little too noisy as there was a very large group 10+ next to us. Service was very attentive, but not too attentive which is good. The food was excellent, although the lasagna was of a type my husband was not used to - very soft. These are things you can't plan on. The good part also is that they "keep" your reservation on time. Definitely like this restaurant.

Excellent food, great service, lovely hostess. We were on a vacation and then wedding trip from New Jersey. The place was recommended by a local. Our party of three had osso buco, grilled chicken with broccoli rabe and chicken breast parmigiana with short rib ravioli...all outstanding dishes. Certainly recommend going there.

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.
