Loved it. Always get good food here. We sat in the bar area and one of the bartenders was our server. He did a great job - very attentive despite a busy bar crowd and very knowledgeable about the menu and nightly specials. Even turned on the Penn State game for me, so extra thanks for that.

Great food and impeccable service. Although the restaurant was crowded the set up of the tables made it possible for us to have an intimate conversation. It was particularly enjoyable to hear our warm and courteous server describe the specials and answer our menu questions. She was very knowledgeable. Her passion for excellence was quite obvious.

I’ll start by saying this used to be our favorite Italian meal outside of Boston. We hadn’t been in a while. It was my Mom’s 75th and my Mother-inlaw’s 80th. I noted that on the reservation.

For openers, at no time did anyone mention either birthday. Disappointing. We also have a 9 month old and had requested space for her. They did a nice job of accommodating us here.

We ordered appetizers and salads to start. When the apps came we ordered our main courses. Here is where the issues started.

The apps and salads were very good, although the salads were over-dressed. There was almost an hour between our salads and our main courses. After about 30 minutes I asked about our meals. The manager came by and curtly apologized for the delay saying they were busy tonight. Then at the end of his comments said that we ordered 3 courses and basically said it was our fault. We ordered apps, salad and a meal. It shouldn’t take this long and he shouldn’t have blamed us. He also barely looked up, didn’t ask if there was anything they could get us. Just poor service. He did say our food was up next. And it still took 15+ minutes to get our food.
When the food did finally come, the salmon dish was luke warm. There were two orders of bolognese. Mine had some clumped together pasta. Not exceptable for this level of restaurant serving fresh pasta. Our other order was basically three giant clumps. Not even edible. We had to ask for them to take that meal off of the bill. The manager did not offer anything.

I will say our waitress was very nice and she was doing the best she could. And the others who delivered food and serviced our table were also good.

The lack of quality around the food and the failure to address issues by the manager have left us disappointed.

On extra item. Tomassos has no infant changing table. They could fit them. Also maybe make the handicap room a companion room. I was surprised the manage could not tell me th closest one.

The only glitch in an otherwise FABULOUS lunch was the temperature in the room - Cold. The maitre d" tried very hard to warm it up, but it was an unusually cold day and that task was difficult. Stay away from the back room on a cold day~

Had people from out of town, and all they could do is rave about the food and service. Always a great dining experience. This is a local gem. If you haven't eaten here I highly recommend it. Chef Daniele Baliani and Chef João Neto prepare incredible meals that tantalize the palate. Thank you all for an outstanding job.

Since the change in management and the head chef, my wife and I have dined at Tomasso Trattoria on several occasions. The servers have consistently been very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The food selection has been excellent and well prepared/seasoned. Our dinners this last time were better than ever...my wife is still raving about her lamb entrée, while my steak couldn't have been better.

Excellent chow tonight, as we've come to expect. Two of us have the pork chop on the menu served tonight with cauliflower... awesome! The other had some of their excellent pasta. Meatballs and a salad to start. Attentive service.

I overheard someone raving about this restaurant at a doctor’s office.

Late dining on a Friday evening, the restaurant was pretty quiet. The bartender was okay at first, getting us water and bread quickly but thereafter, though in front of us, he barely interacted with us...NEVER asking us if we were enjoying our dishes!

The antipasto dish was sophmorish compared to most Italian restaurants. The pasta with kale was SPECTACULAR! The risotto with pumpkin and squash lacked salt, pepper and overly sweet. The lemon panna cotta was great but the berry topping was too sweet, too much, over the top.

My biggest complaint was the inattentive bartender, NO EXCUSE!!!!

We've been coming here for several years. Have never had a bad experience or meal. Jeff the owner and Mike the GM make us feel like family. The food is spectacular and the service excellent. Their pasta dishes, you can not go wrong with or anything on the menu. The antipasto...Bravo!! Their Lamb porterhouse is to die for. Jeremy and Mike behind the bar, will always recommend the best wine or drink for. Absolutely love coming here. It's a local gem. Thank you all for always giving us a great dining experience. Don't forget to end your meal with one of their desserts and a cappuccino.

It was my wife's birthday - so it was great they made it special and we could get away just for a little while. Our waitress was great and very attentive without being overbearing. We'll go back again - thanks for putting a candle in the lava cake but not singing happy b-day!

My husband and I would always go to Tomasso's for a great meal before he got cancer. My 6 year old son wanted to take me out for my birthday and he asked where his dad would have taken me if he was still alive, so we went to Tomasso's. We had wonderful service, the kids menu was delicious and kid friendly, my son even tried some new items like the arancini which are his new favorite. The wine list is lovely and the dessert menu, well lets just say molten lava cake is a hit with the under 10 crowd and my panna cotta al limone was perfection. My son's new favorite place.

Excellent service and high quality / seasonal food. Very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff. I appreciate that they make their own pasta and offer menu items that highlight seasonal (and hopefully local) ingredients. There is a nice selection of starters, salads, pastas and entrees. It is conveniently located and has plenty of parking. I will definitely return!
