My wife and I had walked by this restaurant a couple of times. From the menu, I had high hopes for this restaurant but that didn't pan out. The one thing that is VERY good here is the garlic olive oil dipping sauce. Something that was a little different and tasty. My wife had the mozzarella caprese appetizer. While a... More

We almost always go to Tino's for pizza. Great choice of toppings, and excellent crust (not greasy). Sunday evenings they have a wine special which is always nice, and in Maryland you can take the unfinished wine home with you which is a bonus when there are just two people. The service is friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The... More

Visiting my son and family over Memorial Day Weekend , our guest list suddenly expanded from 6 to 12 people. Tino's was able to seat our party on short notice, Kudos! Because of my dietary restrictions , I am the main problem in selecting a restaurant , even more so when a larger group is involved , but you already... More

Read the favorable reviews and gave it a try. It was a slow day and the server was friendly, informed, and efficient. Just expected much more and will not return. My husband had Chesapeake Chicken, with a sauce that tasted like a grocery commercial product. I tried make your own pasta that was a better choice. I had clams (delicious)... More

Like the fact you can choose your favorite dish. Build your own pasta is my favorite! Fra Diva lo sauce with shrimp, crabmeat is the best. Very consistent, never disappointed.

An unpretentious italian bistro with hearty great tasting pasta. They let you build your own dish if you want. They pass my gnocchi test- not too hard and not too soft so they know what to do with pasta. Good for families and friends to eat without breaking the bank.

The food was really delicious. The service was great and the atmosphere was soothing (not too dark or too bright). My wife and I will definitely come back to this wonderful place.

We love this restaurant because of the food and the availability through OpenTable. We are always able to bypass the lines with our reservation. They are known for their meatball appetizers. We had build your own pasta and pizza on this visit. Always great food and great wine selections.

I was shocked when I learned that it had only been open for such a short period of time. The atmosphere was great and the food and service was excellent. The waiter told me that the house best were the meatballs and man o man - did not disappoint. Also, very affordable wine prices. Personally, I'd like to see them... More
