The food is amazing and the service is outstanding.
Fanatic food, ambience, service - lovely time. Manicotti, meatballs, spaghetti Bolognese, Appetizer platter and tiramisu were fantastic!
Excellent as always👍😁
The food was tasty. Calamari was great, table bread was served warm. I didn’t enjoy the lobster ravioli...the filling was mushy and I didn’t like the vodka sauce. I originally ordered the ravioli with pesto sauce and the waiter recommended a different sauce so I tried it. However, I first asked if I could have the vodka sauce on the side in case I didn’t like it. I was told if I got it on the side and didn’t like it and asked for a different sauce ... I would be charged an additional $2.95! Anyhow, I went with the vodka sauce and I didn’t like it. So I just scraped it off. I also got the creme brûlée...it was subpar. The seating is simply HORRIBLE. Paying fine dining prices and packed like sardines. Also, there was a lady that was there and she laughed like a hyena very loudly...repeatedly. That’s why I gave the average score...food was decent...
A friend we haven’t seen in years was in from CA and we decided to meet in Madison (the middle for us) for dinner. Since we’re not from the area we haven’t been to Tuttos in years. Our last experience was tasty. This time not so. My pasta was under cooked. My husband ordered scampi and was served chicken. Our friend just smiled and ate his food. Maybe his truly was fine, or just too polite to complain to us. The only shining star on the table was the bread they served - it was very good? Disappointed to say I doubt we’d go back or recommend to anyone.
The three hostesses we approached were cold and confused. We waited twenty minutes past our reservation time, while watching multiple parties cancel their table with the hostesses after waiting too long. All three hostesses disappeared for about ten minutes, too, which caused mass confusion.
When we were ultimately seated, our experience improved a little. Our waiter was kind and quick. The food was good. We were missing silverware at our table, which was also not completely cleaned after the last diners.
The restroom was a disaster.
Waited for 40 minutes to be seated for our reservation. Multiple later reservations of similar size were seated before us. They really need better coordination between wait staff and front of house.
The restaurant was great. The service was fast even at a busy time. The portions were large and the food tasted great.
Pre theatre dining. Great place to enjoy Madison people watching outdoors with a pitcher of Mango Sangria. Friendly staff, great bread, great lunch/dinner specials.
Food was great but soda came from a half empty, plastic two litter bottle? Flat, warm, shocked that we were actually served that!!!???!!!
Doubtful we will be back but if we do...water, please.
We considered ourselves lucky to find a table for six on a busy graduation weekend. We were seated quickly, the food was great and the staff was very helpful when my wife left her purse behind and we had to return to pick it up.
We had a party of 12 for my sons Graduation lunch/dinner. They had a great table set up for us in a private nook upstairs. We had amazing service, the food was great, and we could all hear each other in the space. Plus it was great food and wine !
My original reservation was for 8, and 2 weeks before I asked if it could be increased.. the manager I spoke with was amazing, and said he would make it happen. It was a great experience, and we will be using Tuttos for all of our Madison party needs !
Great food and very professional service!
Amazing and relaxing! It’s definitely quieter upstairs, really nice for a date!
Very nice staff, extremely customer responsive - food prepared to your liking and a great location and value - dinner for 5 with a few drinks and an app = $100 !
Always great food but it is very loud and hard to hear inside the restaurant. The food makes it worth it though!
Busy as expected on a Friday evening. Seating space is small, tight and limited so glad we made a reservation. Food was really good with no complaint. Service was a bit lacking due to how busy it was. Our food arrived before our drinks and our appetizer we ordered was never placed for us. I’d come back but maybe I’d pick a different day/evening.
A great little Italian restaurant. Great food and easy to get to. The staff was great and the food, splendid. I recommend it. Be prepared to take some home with you because the servings are generous...and delicious.
Tutto Pasta has been a favorite for many, many years. This is the first visit since over a year when we had terrible service and food (never received drinks, appetizers, refills, food was improperly prepared, waiter kept forgetting basic service--water, bread, incorrect orders).
I am pleased to say, this time was much better! Same waiter has learned from his mistakes and poor quality service. Drinks and appetizers arrived in timely manner, water refilled, food prepared exactly correct and hot!
We are from out of town and this was our fIrst time there based on many recommendations. Really looking forward to it! We were seated in a hot corner of the basement on a table meant for a large party. There were also 2 rather large parties going on next to us-so very loud. Had a nice waiter but not the greatest service as we felt rushed out of there. He also forgot one of our dinners. Dessert was not even presented and we know they had it cause the tray was displayed for the large parties next to us. Fell in love with the tables and quaintness of the place-never dreamt we’d be seated in the basement with no ambiance. Sad experience.
It was a really good meal! They put me at a very inconvenient table, but the server gave me a free dessert even though I did not complain. He provided exceptional service. The seating is a little all over the place, but the food was fantastic! It came out quick and hot which is a huge plus. Also, the prices were very good for the large plate of pasta I got! The food tastes fresh and homemade!
This is a hidden gem in Madison. If you are just looking for some good causal Italian food, come to Tutto Pasta!
Great, thank you
Was disappointed. 20 mins before the waiter took our order and we were in a bit if a hurry to get to a show. The appetizer was good, but the food was only ok and the service was very sloppy. Left leaving most of my entree.
Great food and service for the price. The only problem is using the small bathroom.
An absolutely fantastic place. Crowded, as always, but part of the charm of a genuine State Street institution. They never disappoint. Highly recommended.
We were in town for the WIAA high school basketball game and went to Tutto Pasta with our two kids (ages 7 and 13) and my nephew and fiance. The atmosphere was fun, our server was great and the food was delicious!
My boyfriend loves Italian food and had never been there, so I HAD to bring him!!!
We had a great time. The food was wonderful as was the service. They overheard someone say they had to hug me because it was my birthday. At the end of the meal, I got a piece of cake and a candle in it. The server sang happy birthday to me.
Server was super, food was excellent. Also close to the Overture
The food and service was great! However, it was extremely crowded and noisy. The wait staff could barely move between tables. Our “ postage stamp” table for 2 should have been a table for one. Barely big enough to hold our entrees let alone the bread basket and drinks!
Many tasty pastas. I usually order the Norma which features eggplant.
We were seated quickly at 6:30 pm on the ground floor. Lighting was a bit bright, but ambiance was what we consider very traditional Italian decor and clean. Our waiter was very pleasant and quick to greet us and get our beverage order, and our drinks were very affordable. Surprisingly large wine menu for a less expensive restaurant like this.
We ordered one special (a lemon pasta w/ chicken) as well as the penne peperoncini for our entrees. Between the two, the peperoncini was definitely the winner; not too rich, but very flavorful. Spicy, but not overwhelming. Balanced and delicious.
Our bill was very reasonable, and although the restaurant got much busier by the time we left and our waiter got held up a bit, we had a nice two-course meal at a leisurely pace in ~1 hour and 15 minutes. Definitely recommend this solid Madison institution. Worth checking out for sure.
Good food and service. We sat upstairs and the heat was unbearable. We couldn't wait to get downstairs to the bar.
It was just okay - I expected something a little better for the price. Kind of non-descript food.
Attentive service of bland food (Chef's special) in a cramped room. Competitive pricing, great location, and excellent service compensate for an indifferent menu that may appeal to customers who recoil from authentic flavors.
We had an OK experience but don't recommend this restaurant. The food was passable but expensive for the quality. I would not plan to return here.
A pre-theater dinner with friends. I've eaten here before but my husband and the other couple hadn't so they didn't know what to expect. We all loved the whole experience. Our food server was incredible and even sang 'Happy Birthday' to my friend. <3 The food was incredible! I will definitely be back and bring new 'foodies' with.
The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. I will definitely be returning
Love Tutto Pasta! Great food and great place to go before Overture.
Worst bread I have ever had at a restaurant. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. Hard to mess up pasta and the dishes were ok but uninspired. Great location if you are going to the theater but not a restaurant I would seek out just for the sake of eating there. There are so many better restaurants in the area.
