Wonderful Dinner!!

I took fellow Tripadvisor's recommendations and booked a table for dinner. What a great treat. The food was fresh and excellent. The salad was good size, fresh ingredients and excellent dressing. My husband got 1/2 of an order of bucatini all'amatriciana.....oh my that was the BEST! Made me... read more

It's small and cut up inside and dark. Not a comfortable atmosphere and I guess you need to be Italian to appreciate the high priced cuisine. Small serving of Lasagne came on a large plate with a small side salad of just greens.

The chicken Marsala that was highly recommend by other reviews was in our opinion nothing to high-lite. Rather ordinary and with little taste and love in the kitchen. They need to do better!

Gracious host and server, delicious chicken Marsala and fabulous veal. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but go for the food. Highly recommended

made last minute reservations for 7p and restaurant was really full (it's small) but were seated within 5min of arriving. The staff are SUPER nice. They have a nice selection on the menu but had at least 5-7 specials also. The food is very good, I had the risotto and the scallop appetizer. The wine is poured very generously. Don't... More

Shared a meal with our friends - they sat us at a small table for 6. At first I was skeptical but we had a fantastic time - the meal was great! My husband is Italian and he enjoyed the food as well. Between the six of us, it appeared we tried a variety of items on the menu and... More

After looking at the location (a strip mall) and the menu (it is standard shopping mall Italian) you wonder how this place rated so high on trip advisor!!! When the server explains the specials (there are many) your hopes for the evening get higher. When the meal arrives and you make your first tastes, you are marveled that you could... More

We selected Mamma Tanino’s because of its good reviews, the menu, and the ability to accommodate reservation needs. Our waiter offered many recommendations and helped us with our selections. We chatted with other diners who were back dining for the second time this week, and they shared their recommendations as well! The appetizer (fried mozzarella) we ordered was outstanding, and...

We tried this restaurant on Saturday night. It was OK, but not really up to the reviews we'd read. Located in a small strip mall area West of downtown, the food was decent though the ambiance left something to be desired. Tables were tiny, packed cheek to jowl. They were pretty busy with three large parties, so service was a... More

Excellent food, presented attractively. But not much ambiance in a small, crowded room, filled with some loud people. Tables are tiny. The kind of size one would expect in a European restaurant. We had to scoot ours over a few inches so as not to be a part of the conversation of the young lovers next to us. Note to... More
