There are many places to park in downtown Madison. The parking garages are called Ramps and the one nearest to our restaurant is the Overture Center Ramp. Another one that is almost exactly as close is the State Street Capitol Ramp. There is also the Buckeye lot nearby as well. There are meters on the side streets also to park. If you go to the cityofmadison.com web site and go to the parking utility section you can click on the downtown map for parking. Downtown is fun!

Private Party Facilities:
We have two rooms downstairs that hold 30 seats in each. On very busy days we use all these seats for customers but most weeknights these are available. We will do a special limited menu for your group if you want and will work with you to set all the details as you like. One of the owners, Pam, works with customers for group events to ensure we can provide you with a special evening and great meal. There are times when she can give you the room on a weekend so just give her a call if you want to talk to her about your needs and see if we will be a perfect fit!

Tutto Pasta State Street Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
For a restaurant at a hub of activity downtown, this restaurant holds their own! It is very cozy—at times uncomfortably packed in front waiting for tables at 5-ish when there is an event about to start—but there is a charm to it. If you are on a date, make sure you get a table on main floor! The food we had was delicious (basic pasta dishes), and we want to return to try more.
Everything was outstanding! Our only problem was that we did have to wait about 20 minutes despite having a reservation. But it was a Saturday night after a Badger football game which is always busy everywhere. Once we were seated, out waiter was quite attentive and served drinks immediately. Our food arrived promptly, which was a pleasant surprise, given the size of the crowd. All five of us ordered something different and we all truly enjoyed our meals!!! Hard to believe there was room for dessert, but we managed! Very glad we did, because the three that we chose were wonderful!! I would definitely go back!!!
Six of us older 60-80 y/o needed lunch before the opera, and had to be at the Overture Center by 1:10. Four of us arrived at 11:45 and the other two coming from Milwaukee at Noon. Service was efficient and friendly and we were ready to leave by 1pm. Food, overall was more than satisfactory, though nothing remarkable. Salads were great, pasta dishes were ample. One in the party had a mozzarella panini. She said that the bread was excellent, but the rest lacked much flavor. The whole experience was extremely pleasant except for the loud speaker that was above our table. We'll go again.
Made reservations here for a friend's birthday- she loved it! Our waiter was extremely nice, the food came out quickly, and the food was delicious and very filling. Price is pretty standard. The waiter even brought out a cake for her and we got to sing! I definitely recommend this place.
This is a busy, bustling italian restaurant. We really enjoyed the appetizer platter, suitable for 2 people. The bread was not very good. However, the fettuccini alfredo was flavorful. I had the pasta w/eggplant and mozzarella, which had a good taste, but the sauce did not taste fresh. Overall the food was pretty good, it just didn't taste as fresh as I had expected.
There are a lot of tables crammed into a small space, so it is a little hard to get around.
