This restaurant is considered by many to be one of the best in the MetroWest area. While the food was quite good, the service was very slow and at times even inattentive. Unfortuntately, this really took away from the dining experience. I had not been to this restaurant in many years and have to say that it was a disappointment this time.
Once again Chef goes above his own creative self. Bouillabaisse that was at par with the Nice rendition my husband had while on military tour in France. Unfortunately, Tomasso Trattoria's menu is seasonal... I swear, we wanted to order another bowl for dessert... This is a restaurant that delivers quality - quality service, ambiance, customer care, and memorable meals.
Had dinner there and it was excellent. We had an early reservation (6pm) on a Friday, so it was very quiet when we arrived, but picked up by 7:30 or 8pm. Noise level remained moderate, however, and it was easy to have a conversation. Food was terrific, especially the home-made pasta. I also had a fennel salad that was wonderful. I would highly recommend, and will go back whenever possible.
The food was great and the staff was friendly and professional. I couldn't ask for more but they gave it to me anyway - also excellent wine pairings and ambiance.
Visited recently for the first time. Upon first arriving it did not appear to be busy, but it too a little while to be acknowledged and helped. This didn't bother me too much though and perhaps is the only negative of the experience. The restaurant atmosphere was nice, open & clean...all important first impressions. We had brunch from the set menu and the four of us loved the food. All ingredients are local and organic, which provides great fresh flavors. The service was as expected at an average restaurant, no problems encountered.
I would recommend checking it out if you are in the area of looking for a new or different place to try.
I was there for Sunday brunch. Even though the restaurant was full and the staff looked busy, the sevice was excellent. The food was delicious, the portion was right and healthy. Great experience!
Great place, would definitely go back again.
Food was very good, excellent service. Gourmet out in the burbs. Slightly overpriced for the location.
Regretfully, I don't have great things to say about my meal. The service was excellent. The fish was over cooked. Sorry that I can't rave about the experience.
Our dining experience was very special, as always. The food was delicious and Glen, our waitperson, was knowledgeable, thoughtful and very helpful. Other staff people were friendly and professional as well.
Tomasso Trattoria is an absolute delight - our favorite restaurant!!!
Although it's still good, Tomasso used to be great. This time we had a daily appetizer special that needed more seasoning, an a bolognese that I know for sure I can do better at home, but was good nonetheless. For the main dish I had a veal osso bucco that was undercooked at every level: from the tough meat (remember, this is veal) to the raw (yes, raw) waxy potatoes.
The service is still pretty decent and the wine list is reasonable. At their price point, there are better choices out there.
Went to eat at Tomasso on Thursday night and had a great dinner. Have eaten here many times but the food we had this night was outstanding.
Food was phenomenal. Kind of noisy but lively at the same time. Would go back in a heartbeat.
Food was good but salty. Serving sizes weren't too large but if you took all three courses you would be full. The biggest down side is very few vegetarian or chicken dishes.
During the week it is a popular place for EMC to take customers and partners. Lots of shop talk in the place, but a very pleasant environment overall.
Had an amazing dinner for Valentines day here. The special menu was tremendous. The scallop ceviche, beet risotto and tuna were amazing. The orange crostada was perfect! Clearly they spent a lot of time putting this perfect special menu together and this diligence shows in their cooking, presentation and overall experience. I am always happy with this restaurant!
We enjoyed our meal, but was a little disappointed. The mussels still had sand in them, they ran out of two of our meal choices and one of our mains was just bland. Great wine list though.
Shawn the waiter made for a great experience. Very entertaining and interesting .
As usual, the menu never ceases to amaze me! For lunch, we enjoyed their wonderful pizzas, and roasted veggies. For dinner, the grilled trumpet mushrooms, when in season, put any steak to shame. Service is always top notch, breakfast, lunch or dinner, or simply letting Larry at the bar dazzle you with his smile and artistry. Truly a local gem with great food, great people, wonderfully familiar and cozy!
Tomasso represents cooking as true art. Dishes sound simple, even boring compared to the overblown descriptions on so many menus these days; but the food is an absolute revelation. How can it be so delicious, the flavors so perfect? Even the salad garnishes surprise with their delectable flavor. I suppose it's a matter of the best ingredients prepared ideally, not overwrought. Fun to sit at the kitchen bar and watch the artists (alchemists?) in action. Tomasso is an order of magnitude better than anything else outside 128. I've not just enjoyed, but savored, every meal I've eaten there (maybe 15). Service is friendly and highly professional.
Food was good to very good, but despite being partitioned into two rooms, and no large groups that night the place was LOUD. REALLY LOUD. Had to sit right next to my wife diagonally at a small table, and almost yell to be heard. Even when half the tables emptied out, it was still loud. The food was good, not great. But the fairly crowded seating, upscale cafeteria decor, and unpleasant noice made it less than pleasant for a romantic evening.
We had a wonderful dinner 3 courses with wine pairings. The food was delicious and the wine pairings perfect! The service was very good. A fantastic evening and we look forward to going back in the near future!
Our only negative was everything was so great then they served us okay tasting cold bread. This is a restaurant that one would expect the bread to be up to par with the rest of the meal and be fresh out of the oven!
Been here X 3 now and have always enjoyed the food, its wonderful
We ordered from the Prezzo Frisso menu with wine pairings and enjoyed it immensely. Nice mix of flavors, unusual and delightful. The pork ravioli were a real treat. The service came from a large number of staff members and all were pleasant and attentive. We will definitely find a time to visit again. The only drawback, and this is minor, is that we would not sit in the side front room again. It was drafty and oddly noisy in an echo-like way. We've dined in their main room before and it was much nicer. And everytime we pass through the bar area it looks very inviting, so maybe that will be next!
THe service was terrific, very attentive and gracious. The wine pairings were great, we both liked two of the three wines and how it impacted the food. However, the food was very bland and not well seasoned at all. We had three courses and selected different items, none were a 'wow'. The waitress was gracious and tried to please with offers of dessert instead. She was terrific but I think I can find better italian food in the Metrowest area.
Were knowledgeable about food allergies and had selections that were Gluten Free which I appreciated very much.
Excellent restaurant in every regard!
Although the food and service was excellent, the portions were too small for the prices. Too pretentious. Would not go back.
The wine list is outstanding and the food is always top notch. I'd say the most inconsistent thing we've found might be the meat entrees. I went through a stretch of 3 visits where every meat dish I ordered was tough or super salty but everything else was so fantastic it was forgivable. The Misty Knoll Chicken is beyond your average chicken entree--it is really superb. The care with which the food is prepared shows in every way. We've enjoyed the Prezzo Fisso menu which is a great deal and we've also done the multi course dinner which can feel like a wonderful adventure. The staff is attentive without hovering. We've never had issues with service but we've witnessed other tables waiting a LONG time between courses on a busy night.
We enjoyed the three course prix fixe menu - warm dates stuffed with gorgonzola; caramelized onion soup; and sea scallops with a lemon vinaigrette. All done to perfection. Came with wonderful wine pairings. Server was well-versed with the wine selections.
This is our favorite metrowest restaurant. It never disappoints. Great food. Great wine. Great service.
We had an outstanding meal and experience. Food rivaled any 5-star eatery anywhere, with attention to freshness, taste, texture, etc. Wine pairings were spot on as well. Attitude of staff was awesome, attentive and unobtrusive (so rare these days). You can't go wrong in walking into this wonderful place. I am critical and I could not find even a "spot on an olive" to complain about!
Restaurant was very accommodating when we increased our party from 4-5 on a busy night. Food was good, but felt the wine pours were on the skimpy side. A little disappointed that they had a limited (exclusive) beer and wine selection. Good service. A little on the expensive side.
You need to bring your checkbook with you to have a total Tomasso experience. We love it there, but can only go occasionally as with wine, app, primi, second and dessert it is over $200 per couple. The ambiance does not support the price tag, but the food is very good.
Atmosphere was very nice. Service was excellent. Food was fair and over priced. I don't think I would return.
The Prezzo Fisso was excellent!
AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The special event was beyond expectations, and worth every cent. The learning experience, the food and the ambiance was majestically pulled off by the entire staff. Kudos for such a high end establishment that is still unpretentious, down to earth and superbly executed! If you see they have porketta on the menu, by all means RUN to the restaurant... it is OUTSTANDING!
Great dinner! They offered advice for making the price fix menu appropriate for me as a vegetarian and I was pleased with the result.
First time we went for brunch. It was much quieter than usual and only a few tables were occupied (around 11:00am). I found the french toast with marscarpone a bit dry and heavy. My wife ordered the eggs benedict and requested vegetarian if they could do it -- they did an awesome job and my wife loved it.
