Decent, but not great. Its been a long time since I have been to Tucci's and it wasn't what I remember. Reminded me of Olive Garden. Not great, not terrible.

3rd time to eat here. Every time the service and food have been exceptional. The previous visits did not include live music, but both the violin and accordion were professionally played and appropriate to the Christmas season. Well done!

It is so sad how this place has gone just straight down the crapper. It use to be so nice! Our waitress was nice and did her best. But the place was empty on a holiday weekend. Food came cold, people got the wrong dishes, it was not very good at all. They had baby shark and Mexican mariachi band playing on repeat…. On what was suppose to be a fine Italian dining experience. It was actually hilarious. And so weird. It was a ghost town and it enough staff to handle or even know how to deal with a party of 12.

For our office staff Christmas dinner we reserved a table for 11. Tucci’s is one of only a few restaurants to offer reservations. They had our table ready on time in a nice private nook. The atmosphere was perfect. The staff were helpful and friendly. The service was great. The food was hit and miss. Most of the party was very happy with their food but some of the dishes looked and tasted like they had been leftovers from the day before. The mixed vegetables were rubbery and the veal Parmesan was soggy and tough. Some of the pastas lacked flavor. The restaurant was nice but the food was forgettable. Perhaps this review will help to improve the quality in future.

The food wasn’t great, service was slow, and when we asked to split checks he suggested we Venmo each other. I’ve been a server and it’s not hard to split checks. I used to love Tucci’s but it’s just not that great anymore.

I don’t know how this place has so many great reviews. The food is disgusting! We had 7 people, all ordered different items from the menu, no one liked their meal. It was so gross. I think the pizza sauce is from a jar, the Alfredo sauce was so gross. Everything was gross!

We have been going to Tucci's for about 23 years. We go there for our anniversary every year and for special occasions. Some years we have been surprised with being serenaded at our table with a beautiful Italian song. We definitely would suggest Tucci's as it is our favorite restaurant.

My dish was quite good but some of my parties not as good (I tried theirs as well). So it seems the food there is variable in quality depending on dish. The food is pretty expensive as well for what you get, biggest knock off is value. Despite this, it is a fun atmosphere (live music) and good food if not a good value.

Waited for 15 minutes and no one came by the table. I had to go back to the host who seated us and let him know we were still waiting for service and ready to leave. Finally got someone to take our order. We ordered the combination.dish of ravioli, tortellini with chicken, and gnocchi with shrimp to split. Chicken on the tortellini was dry and over cooked. The shrimp on the gnocchi was tasteless. Pasta and sauces were nothing overly impressive. The only part of our meal that was good was our Insalata Fresca. Overall would not return.

I loved the food! They serve copious amounts (compared to fancier restaurants) and my spaghetti carbonara was delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed and, although the interior feels a little outdated, it's nice sometimes to get that old-fashioned "diner" type feel. It felt like a bit of a mix between Buca de Beppo and fancier Italian restaurants (and, apparently, this restaurant is not a chain!). I thought it was great value, too.

Disaster - Never Going Back. I took my wife out for Mother’s Day based on a high rating from Opentable. The two of us left the restaurant extremely frustrated after an hour and 30 minutes because our main course had not arrived. Several tables that were seated after us were served before us, including a table of 8 people.

The appetizers we did I receive were mediocre. I ordered Bottoni which supposed to be mushrooms in a wine sauce. I received wine sauce with a few mushrooms, probably what you might serve on pasta with other ingredients. My wife’s crustini was served on soft bread.

The waitress was very apologetic but the dinner was a disaster and the food not worth it. Olive Garden does a better job with less pretension.

We were touring University of Utah and this was highly recommended by parents Facebook group. Very good food, strolling violinist and awesome apple tart that was enough for 3. I would have given them 5 if they had provided outdoor dining during these times.
