I don’t care for truffles and the menu offered little without them. My guest’s salad was forgotten and never brought, with little or no apology. The calamari appetiser was undercooked and the sauce was ordinary. The waiter didn’t hear very well (I’m sorry about that, neither do I). My Negroni, ordered “up” with a couple of ice cubes floating, was served in a brandy snifter filled with ice. The table near us had two raucous women who seemed to feel that their comments were important to all diners (not). It would’ve been helpful if someone—perhaps the waiter who doesn’t hear very well) would’ve asked them to speak more quietly. It was a dreadful experience all round, sadly, as I booked it for a special occasion.

I made this reservation for a surprise family birthday. I specified in the reservation that it was a birthday celebration and would like them to treat it as such and include a birthday cake. Unfortunately, they did nothing to make it special, and no cake! I was under the false impression that Tomaso's was a higher caliber restaurant than it is in actuality. There are many fine Italian restaurants with food as good or better so why not go to one that cares about it's customers. Tomaso's was a disappointment.
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend, so the ratings for food and service were passed along to me by my wife and other guests.

Tomaso’s Is a regular dining option when I visit the Phoenix area. In a city know for its numerous dining options, it is comforting to have a place that never disappoints. Elegant, without being stuffy, Tomas’s always rewards its customers with a wonderful dining experience. Good food, great service, and elegant surroundings; what else is there.

The food was bland for an Italian restaurant it had absoulutly no flavor and was over priced, the waiting staff took forever to asssist us and clear the table, we asked for more bread and the assistant didn't even bring spread. We had wine and weren't asked if we'd like more, the enviromemt is full of buisness partners and meetings. I will not be returning ever again.

First off this place is definitely for older patrons. My mom's birthday dinner started off great with the hostess giving us a warm welcome and seating us at our table. The waiter was pleasant enough throughout the meal, only needed to be flagged down a couple of times but he forgot it was my mother's birthday. No candle in either of the 2 desserts we ordered which was disappointing since I had seen it offered at another table nearby.

Took my wife here for our 30th Anniversary. She is quite the Foodie so I needed to find something different and good.

The service was excellent, the food was excellent, my only complaint is the Neighbors.....the table across from us had 12-14 people and for some reason they thought it appropriate to talk very loudly to each other. In an open floor plan like this is, that is less than respectful to other diners. I had to stop myself twice from approaching the people and calling them on their disrespectful manners.

We had a Veal Chop Caprese, phenomenal! and a Pacherri Amalfitani, which was excellent!! Homemade ravioli, excellent spice level, only thing I would have like a few more shrimp.

The Tiramisu was the best I have ever had.

After dinner we were fortunate enough to meet Tomaso himself, that was a great topper to an already wonderful evening.

Will definitely be back!

Husband and friends hadn't been there in a long time and this was my first visit. The food was great! The bread was not very crusty for Italian bread but the herb butter was nice. The room was a little loud for conversation but it was a Saturday, Dino was our server and we had ask 3 times for the wine list and twice for fresh pepper.

The locals say Tomaso's is the best Italian restaurant in the Phoenix metropolitan area and I agree. The menu offers a wide selection and the flavor is outstanding. The environment is classic "old school" supper club. That means it's a great spot for a quiet dinner whether it's casual, business, or a special occasion.

The lights were too bright. It actually needed to be dimmed down for dinner. It was too bright. The meal was very good. Had the lobster ravioli and the experience was better than I expected ,since the North Scottsdale location was a waste of money and not worth the value. The North location the food is fit for a nursing home. No taste and very bland. The atmosphere at the North Scottsdale location is bad. The window treatments are like walking into an old lady's house and the tables and chairs are not comfortable. There is not one booth. They have a chef's table in the middle of the restaurant. What a joke that is not private and it is a waste of space in the dining room. Noisy. Sports games playing in bar and since there is an open floor plan was not sure if I should have worn a shorts and a t-shirt or dressed up. The Biltmore location is far more superior in all aspects, food, service and atmosphere. I will return there even though is geographically far from home.

I love Tomaso’s for the creative dishes and their ability to go “off the menu” which only adds to the overall enjoyment of the dining experience. The staff is outstanding and professional. I always ask the waiters what they enjoy because each time they bring out an entre I’ve never had and a partial variation of something on the menu. The Oso Buco is the best I’ve had ANYWHERE! This is tasty authentic food, far and above what you come to expect from the boring franchise places. A bit pricey but well worth the cost.

What a wonderful old school authentic Italian restaurant! Filet Mignon Carpaccio, Antipasto by the person, and Calamari were excellent appetizers. Osso Buco, Chioppino and various pasta dishes were all enjoyed by the table. And big enough to take home lunch tomorrow! So glad to visit the area and visit this restaurant.
