Make sure to request Dale as your waiter, you will have a very enjoyable evening. Best service ever, and the food is delicious.

Warm atmosphere and attentive staff. We love fish and are never disappointed when ordering any of the fish at Tambascio's. Love the Sole Francese -- has a terrific lemony buttery sauce! The salmon is always cooked to perfection -- crunchy outside and light and flaky inside! My husband loves the appetizer olives that are served with the yummy bread! The... More

Very warm atmosphere with very pleasant and attentive wait staff. The food is very good with Italian specialties and other dinner entrees. A small but very adequate bar if you have to wait for your table. They also have a thriving take out business. I highly recommend this excellent restaurant.

My title says it all. We ate at Tambascio's this past Saturday. We eat there often and are used to all of the pluses. The couple with us had never been there. They were as pleased as we were and certainly will return again.

My husband and I had dinner this evening, and, as usual, were blown away by any entree we select. My husband had linguine with red clam sauce, served in a huge bowl with a generous amount of clams, both in shell and shucked. The Italian dressing on the salad was wonderfully complex .Pasta fagioli soup was served piping hot with... More

While the service is usually good and the staff is very friendly, the food can be a problem. At our last outing they were promoting a Sunday night prix fixe dinner which turned out to be talapia (YUK) served under the guise of filet of sole. There is a profound difference between the two and this deception has caused us... More
