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

So happy we found this on TripAdvisor. This restaurant is small, but the food is outstanding. Our meal was amazing, starting with the Caprese salad and the Antipasti. I had the Spaghetti Carbonara, which was the best I ever had, and my husband had Veal Parmigiana, which was also fabulous. Can't wait until we return to the area next year,... More

Having just moved back to California after living in Italy, we were desperate to find authentic Italian food. Luckily, Mamma Tanino's, is the real deal. The owners, gave us an extremely warm welcome, in Italian, (molto grazie!), complete with moist pavola on the house. The pasta with seafood was super fresh, as was my wife's homemade soup that hit the... More

Wonderful, fresh Italian cuisine. Specials are numerous, so don't stick to the menu. The food is simply delicious and the setting feels like Italy, too. Don't miss this cozy ristorante!

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner here. We had calamari as an appetizer and it was really good. I had the Veal Parm and it was delicious. My wife had a pasta that was the special and it was OK but nothing special
