Buono!

I came here for my 18th birthday last year and the food was delicious! Authentic Italian cuisine! The restaurant isn't large but that makes it that much more personable & cozy. The only complaint I had is that the staff weren't always accommodating & friendly.

We went here on a recommendation and it was great. The antipasta was amazing - great size to share, included a lot of variety. The pizzas were fantastic - great selection, and delicious. My only complaint was that the olives on the pizza are whole and have pits. But such a small issue, when everything else was amazing!

This restaurant was recommended to us by family members who go out of their way to visit when in the area. We were not disappointed! The appetizers were great, and the pizza was delicious. Our waitress was friendly and helpful, but things did get a little slow as the evening went on, and it got quite busy and cramped. I... More

I went to Tesoro's for the first time with my sisters, the food was amazing. It's such a nice cozy restaurant. A great place to go with the girls or out for a quiet romantic dinner, I WILL be back

We had dinner here last week and shared a wonderful pizza with sausage and gorganzola on it. The only thing I might have added to enhance a bit of flavour would've been fennel. But, we still enjoyed our pizza. We also started with a Caesar salad and I was disappointed that they did not use fresh bacon or house-made croutons.... More

Have had 2 meals here & could not believe that a tiny place like this, could have such a varied menu & that the food coming from that tiny kitchen could be so amazing. Great pizza, pasta & gourmet meals. Staff are professional & friendly. Food is simply amazing. Had pasta the first time & salmon most recently. The chicken... More

This cozy little gem tucked away behind the main street, is well known locally and by the weekenders as an excellent choice for pastas and italian fair. From the Bread with oil, and Balsamic to the salads and main courses, we've never been disappointed. Our last visit on a Friday night was just what we were looking for, a relaxed... More

Two of us ate on the patio on a warm evening. As noted by an earlier reviewer the service can be a little slow, but the server was friendly and things improved as the evening went on. Most Italian favourires were on the menu, started with bruscetta and then had penne arrabiata (very spicy, ask for a big glass of... More

We ate dinner at Tesoro on a Tuesday night and it seemed to be a popular place to dine. I had the towering lasagna (have uploaded a picture) - delicious! And my husband had the mussels in wine sauce (I think it was an appetizer, but was enough for a full meal, considering we were brought basket after basket of... More
