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.

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!
