This place is great-we have been there many times over the past few years. Un fortunately their last day in business is this Sunday 06/26/16. The majority of the block is being torn down and replace with an apartment complex. Tutto does not have any plans to reopen anywhere soon.

The food was very average; nothing special. Veal Parm was bland and flavorless. And the service was truly terrible, given the fact that there were only 3 tables seated in the whole restaurant.

We really enjoyed our experience at Tutto for Mother's Day. The food was great and the staff was very attentive. My husband particularly liked the sizable portions. It was good value for the money. I would recommend this place.

Everything was excellent from the drinks to the pastas and meat entrees. My caesar salad was incredibly fresh with a handmade dressing. The service was excellent, also. An easy ride on the Red Line to Sheridan or even bus 151. Quick cab ride from the downtown hotels. Give them a visit.

We have enjoyed Tutto Fresco for years - GREAT food, very efficient & friendly staff, good prices ... BUT, they're leaving this location at the end of June - along with so many other businesses & theatres on the street while "development" happens. Keep your fingers crossed - or HELP with info you may have - for ANOTHER area location for them ... WE NEED TUTTO FRESCO! anyway - go check them out - we especially enjoyed the grilled calamari (sauce would be put on cardboard and your eyes would roll!) and their eggplant parm ... personally love the mussels and, well, nary a bad meal ... i don't eat wheat or dairy so i cannot speak to the pasta offerings but folks surely do seem to enjoy. support this great little find - and then hope they re-emerge nearby!

We have been looking for an affordable dining location near our home since our favorite restaurant closed. Tutto Fresco is a very "nice" option, I will say that the prices are a little higher than what a Trattoria should be in my opinion, but the portions are large enough to either share or have something to take home. It was a very solid meal. The pasta was well prepared and the sauces were fine. But it wasn't anything that I would say was completely amazing. The ambiance was very nice and the service was very attentive friendly

I will say that I am always a little skeptical of restaurants which allow you to choose your pasta and your sauce rather than having the chef provide the options for you. But this was a very nice meal and a good choice for dinner with my wife and daughter. I would not hesitate to go back, but we will keep looking for a perfect option, especially at the prices ($14/plate)

We always enjoy Tutto Fresco, especially, when they accommodate us after the symphony. We arrived at about 10:30 and they had no problem providing us with a complete dinner. We were never rushed. The food is really good and the wine is a very good value. Our server (we've had him several times before) is very professional and knowledgeable. He makes excellent recommendations and doesn't "hover." The only thing about the restaurant is that it needs some serious renovation - or at least have the floors replaced and the walls painted.

Perfect place for romantic dates. Not stutible for large groups. Went as a larger group had an amazing experience, but I think it is meant more for smaller parties or couples.

The food was great, but I felt like I was disturbing my server by being there. I was the first person in the restaurant and I was by myself, yet I say for quite a few minutes before the server even came over. All he said was, "Would you like something to drink". No welcome, no specials, no greeting. Ordering was much the same, and I felt like he really didn't want me there. A couple came in a few minutes after I did, and I heard him giving them much more personable service. In contrast, the server assistant was great, getting me anything I needed and answering my questions about the menu. He at least seemed like he was happy to be there, while my actual server just seemed angry the whole time.

The food was good, but the service makes me not want to return.

We were seated at 5:30 and told our server that we had a show to go to at 7pm (theater was about a 10 min. walk away) We then sat there for 1 hour without food before a person in our party went back to the kitchen to see what was wrong,when the food finally arrived, I immediately asked for the check and we proceeded to gulp down our food. We're talking pasta here!! It doesn't take that long to cook!! Seems like other diners were waiting a long time also. That being said, the food was delicious and the wine was also good. I just wish I had more time to enjoy it and maybe a cup of espresso afterwards. I'm giving this an overall 2 star rating because of the wait but if this is fixed I would give it a 4 star.

Found this place online and went to check it out. My wife liked it immediately ans so did my two children (ages 17 and 24). Food was super fresh and tasty. Owner came out and met with us. Place has been open for 6 years and I would have never stopped there before. Place is a gem and inexpensive. I give the food quality a 10.

The dishes are delicious and outstanding. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful with the menu items. Prices are reasonable and a fair portion I may add. My favorite pasta is his seasonal black pasta it is to die for! Dont forget the fried calimari!
