Great take out!

We have fior over five year enjoyed Tambasico's food. Almost once a week we order a large pizza and house salad with a fresh hose dressing on the side. It's always hot, fresh and delicious.

Nice Italian off of 302. Easy access. Nice ambience a little dark with a sunroom off to the side. Good pizza.

We come here often, whether it's something from their regular menu, pizza or one of their amazing specials, you won't be disappointed. Great food, great staff.

I LOVE this restaurant!. The food is great and very reasonable. It seems very empty, but it fills up. I would consider making a reservation.

Known for its delicious Italian cuisine, Tambascio's Italian family restaurant is a taste of Italy tucked away in the western countryside of Newtown, CT. The hospitality of the owner and the courteous and attentive staff sets this small restaurant apart for the rest. The food is always good and the servings are quite generous. You feel welcome and right at... More

Tambascio's is near our home and we are regular take out customers, especially for the pizza. Their take out dinners are very good as is the house salad dressing. Their sit down dining room is comfortable and pleasant. It gets a good crowd. The bar area is small.

Great ambiance, excellent food, and a wonderful staff. The owner, John, makes you feel like you are one of the family and checks with every table to make sure everything is to your liking. Great place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or just a night out!

We shared a large (actually huge) Caesar salad with loads of anchovies and the veal ravioli in a Rosemary brown sauce topped with portobello mushrooms and goat cheese. Fortunately the restaurant serves wonderful bread to sop up the delicious gravy. The staff is very friendly and attentive, like a neighborhood bistro. We enjoyed eating in the atrium with the snow...
