Thomas did a great job, he even tried to decline us giving him a tip so our credit card did not have to be run in addition to our gift card (we left him cash, fortunately we had some!). All in all a lovely evening for our anniversary. And the complimentary tiramisu was delicious too.

We went with friends for a celebration of a birthday. The service was excellent. The food for two of us was sent back because it was cold. We felt that the prices were high. Most places are now.

Fantastic upscale experience, great food and people. Service was impeccable and best of all, there was no rush with plenty of time between courses; made the entire experience very comfortable. Nice selection of Italian wines with a few hidden secrets; be sure to ask the server about select wines not on the main list.

Very enjoyable dinner. Started with a bread that was super fresh and crunchy. Then a type of bean soup that was very good as well. Main course was a wonderful veal osso buco, a low cooked, and very tasty.

Service was outstanding as well. Just listening to his specials description was appetising.

Will definitely be back.

Parking was difficult. Not a lot of directions on how to use valet parking. Not sure where entrance was (two doors). Greeting was nice, sat quickly. Took a while to get order in. Did not like my drink (to sour). My food was good, others in my party enjoyed their food more. Dessert was wonderful. The bottle of wine they charged me $65 for you can find at Total wine for $20.

I've been to Tomaso's many times for business lunches and have always had excellent meals and excellent service. It was our Anniversary so I decided to take my wife here for dinner since I always rave about it to her. It was perfect. Great service, great food. Couldn't ask for a more enjoyable time.

This is a restaurant that could be excellent. The dishes are excellent in flavor, but my one major complaint is the temperature of the food. I hate getting a great dish and it is “luke” warm at best. We brought it up when the apps came out and when the dinners came out it was not corrected. Had the meals been hot…I would have a much different perspective on the review.

Hard to believe Tomaso’s has received the high ratings it has, as our dining experience was a disappointment on every level!

When we planned a trip to Phoenix, we looked at Tomaso’s reviews on Open Table and made a reservation based on what we read. One of the reasons was for the “Best Ever Lasagna” listed on the menu, as my wife enjoys lasagna.

Once seated, we perused the menu and my wife selected the lasagna, and I was set on the squid ink pasta, and the mozzarella and tomato appetizer, which was to have burrata and fresh mozzarella on charred tomatoes. Our server, Oscar, came to the table to take our order, and when my wife ordered the lasagna, Oscar indicated they were out of the lasagna, and apologized for not telling us sooner. I asked why we weren’t informed of that when we were seated

When we received the appetizer, it was only mozzarella on red and yellow tomatoes. Unlike the description, there was no burrata, and the tomatoes were not charred. We also asked for some additional fresh bread, and were presented, the second time, with bread that seemed to be stale. Once we received the entrée, the chicken parmigiana was the worst I have ever eaten.

At the end of the meal, which we both left most of, our server asked how the meal was, and I responded that it was not good at all! He immediately indicated he would have the manager come to the table. He also proceeded to bring my wife a birthday, dessert, tiramisu, which she does not like.

The manager, Giovanni, did come to the table, and I proceeded to tell him how disappointing the overall evening had been, and that we would not return. He apologized and indicated that he wanted to take care of our tab for the evening, and to give Tomaso’s another chance.

While we are very appreciative of the fact that the manager took care of our dinner tab, I don’t think we will return, as there are too many good Italian restaurants in the Phoenix area to spend time and money on another meal at Tomaso’s!

Overall, we liked Tomaso's, but there were some things that could have been better. Our waiter was very nice, but it took 45 minutes to order our meal, which was Ok since we were not in a hurry. They were already out of their signature Friday special, osso bucco, by 7:30, which was disappointing. The lemon prawns were a little mushy, and the linguini clams a bit spicy. Despite some hesitation, we will try them again and see if our next meal is more enjoyable.
