All Good Things Italiano

This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants. They offer great food, good sixe portions, good service and very reasonable pricing. They are one of a few restaurants where you can mix and match your pasta, sauce and extra ingredients. If you love chocolate and who doesn't, the Mascarpone cake for... read more

We were able to have dinner with our friends and their daughter and son at Tagliani's for their 60th anniversary. When they were married something happened with the planned dinner at the reception. They ended up going to an Italian restaurant in Phoenix. It no longer exists. Well the bottom line is that no matter where they are on their... More

I love Tagliani's. Weather permitting, I think the patio is the best. Good selection of food. The build your own pasta rocks. Portion sizes are big. Bring a few friends if you have the Tower of Pisa Cake.

I've been to both locations and sadly the food was tribe both times. Mushy, mealy gnocchi, bland bread. I really like the atmosphere and service was fine but the food is just too off-putting.

Very large birthday party on a Saturday night. Very disrupting to other dinners. Along with loud piped in music it was almost impossible to carry a conversation. A loud noisy party seems a bit out of place for a nice restaurant like this. Seemed out of place.

It is always nice to sit outside on the east side of a restaurant in the late afternoon. The weather was perfect. Waitresses were attentive, smiling and efficient. We had the shrimp cocktail Las Vegas style and loved every minute of it. I had the Eggplant Frittata and could barely tell it was eggplant because the pieces are bite-size, not... More

My wife and I came here to celebrate her birthday. She ordered the chicken parmesan, while I had the veal parmesan. The food was delicious. What seemed lacking was attentiveness of the server. She was not overly informative or helpful, and barely paid attention to us as we were eating. The decor seems a bit plain and needs updating.

I had been here a long time ago and had just remembered it as slightly better than average. However, I went with a group and everyone was very happy with the variety on the menu and their meals. We had a nice "semi-private" dining room. There also is a great patio but it was too hot that evening. I'm impressed... More

Excellent food. Meals are freshly cooked and very delicious. Favorite is Chicken Tagliani. The other big hit with our family is the chicken parmigian. Staff was very friendly and attentive.

Cucina Tagliana transports one to Italian from the dining setting where you dine at your own table but become part of the family. It is cute with a fountain burbling in background, red stucco, booths and tables, grape decor near ceilings and nooks. Highly recommend "Mo", the waiter who works on Friday and Saturday evenings. Bar is on right, dining... More
