Totally enjoy my nite at Ticci’s From the food to the service and friendliness of the staff. The big joy was when papa Tucci sang happy birthday to my wife in Italian. Made the night!

Service was extremely slow despite the place not being busy. There may have only been one waiter on staff. One person liked their food in our group, but two dishes came out cold. Not a great experience.

Food was well above average and worth paying a little more for. Not too expensive with plenty of delicious options. Great ambiance for a romantic dinner or family get together. Service was excellent and we will plan on returning for more. Thanks!

Even though our reservation was not found, they were able to sit us immediately since there were very fee customers. Server was outstanding and very alert to our needs. Food was Excellent! Started snowing and we were sitting right next to the window. It made the scenery that much more beautiful.

My daughter says this is her new favorite restaurant! She's a lover of Italian food, but thought that Olive Garden was nice Italian food so I wanted to treat her to something different. My boyfriend and I brought her here for Valentine's Day. We enjoyed delicious food and wine and she tried lobster ravioli for the first time and loved it. Big fan. Great service. We'll definitely be coming back. Thank you!

We had a family birthday dinner for 5. We never felt rushed even though we ate our dinner and dessert over a 2.5 hour period.
I have a teenager who has a gluten intolerance and he had several options and was thrilled.
There were so many choices that I asked the waiter to choose a dinner and surprise me. He delivered an amazing entree.
Our food was piping hot, seasoned perfectly and appealing to the eye.
Papa Tucci even came over toward the end of dinner and sang Happy Birthday in Italian to my 17 year old.
Love this place!
I will be back!!!!

Our server was overly charming, reminded me of a car salesman. Very good at getting you to order something more expensive instead of what you initially wanted so be careful.

Apparently understaffed when I visited. Seating us took 10 minutes even though there were many open tables and we had a reservation. Then it again took unreasonably long to get service at the table. There appeared to be only on server for our half of the restaurant (though she was remarkably upbeat and pleasant). One of our orders was botched in the kitchen, and by the time we were all served, it seemed like the other four entrees had been sitting out and waiting for the fifth to be re-prepared. It was December and perhaps staff was short because of illness or vacations, but the reason didn't change the experience.

Enjoyed the restaurant and the food. The people were kind and helpful. The prices were fairly reasonable. Was not crowded.

My Farfalle had a way too overpowering mushroom flavor. I like mushrooms but I also want to taste the pasta, sauce and other ingredients. All I could taste was mushrooms. My husband's steak was way under done. We got a combo of appetizers (calamari, bruschetta, spinach dip) and they were delicious.

We loved our experience! We had an enormous group for a work outing, and the staff at Tucci's was absolutely welcoming, and accommodating. They were all fantastic, the food was AMAZING, and the owner himself came to chat with us about the food, and what desserts he had hand crafted in the back. Even our out of town coworkers who came with us were impressed.

They used to be a destination to desire to go to, now it's one you expect to be a hit or a miss. Our server was kind but could care less about doing her job, she was more engrossed in anouther servers story.

We had a reservation for 20 and only had 1 server take care of our table. Our drink order took over 30 minutes. Food was well over an hour and a half. The restaurant was basically empty beside us and no one was helping our server. We sat for over an hour and a half before any food came out. It was ridiculous. Didn’t leave until after 11:00pm. Restaurant empty.

16 years ago I took my newly proposed to fiancee (that night) to dinner at Tucci's. We had a fabulous time. Occasionally we have stopped in but not for several years.

Last Friday upon arriving Papa Tucci himself seated us, took my coat and got us all set. My wife and I took our 10 year old daughter and friend out. Great food, great ambiance, Papa Tucci serenaded (in Italian) another table for their anniversary. The calamari was as we remembered it and the food and flavors were excellent.

Needless to say it was a great night. Give it a shot!

Thanks Tucci's!

Cold, predictable Italian fare. No heartfelt acknowledgment of our special, 90 year birthday occasion—not even a candle. The place seems to be going downhill.
