Great Neighborhood Resturant

We went because every Wednesday they support a different cause. Shaq (like the basketball player) was great. I appreciate a waiter that looks out for me. Their wine list is very good and my bride and I both had a Pinot her's from California mine from Chili, we wanted to compare and contrast... both... read more

Everything was wonderful! Their new brunch is to die for... They have added really good specials like prime cuts of steak and others that aren't exactly Italian.

We have been to Tino's regularly since it opened and always enjoy their food. This used to be the location of Strapazza's and the chef was hired for Tino's when it opened. We still order Fettuccine Strapazza" which we recommend. It is Tino's Seafood Mare Bella but ask for it with fettuccini noodles and the "rose sauce".

I don't get down to this part of Maryland that often, but I'm always impressed with Tino's. Just stopped in a week or so ago and had another great meal.

I stayed at a nearby hotel and the front desk clerk recommended Tino's. We ordered a pizza and 2 appetizers for pick-up. The food was pretty standard and nothing special. The price, however, was a lot more than we expected. $45 for a small cheese pizza and 2 appetizers... Seems a bit much to me for average food. I'll make... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Menu has a wide variety of choices. If you want something special, just ask. They will do everything possible to accommodate you. Service was excellent. Owners are out and about in the restaurant making sure everything is perfect. Pleasant environment. Outdoor patio when weather permits.

After my last and not so glowing review of Tino's, the new owners invited me back to give them a second try. My first visit must have been during management transition because this was a much different dining experience. Anyway, my boys and I stopped in for dinner yesterday. We didn't order all of the exact items from our previous... More

I took my sons out for dinner tonight and thought we'd try a different spot. Tino's hosted several school fundraisers and parents said it was a great place to eat. We ordered calamari for our appetizer. It tasted like flour even though it appeared to be dusted, not drenched in flour. It was hard to detect the squid flavor. I... More

Pleasantly surprised with how delicious everything was, from the Eggplant Parmesan to the custom pastas (ravioli with rose cream sauce and angel hair with grilled shrimp and fra diavolo sauce). Chose a reasonably-priced Chianti from the wine list and it was superb. All in all, great food, attentive service -- we'll be back.

Tino's was close to where we were staying and we decided to go there for lunch. We had the ultimate meat lover's pizza, the shrimp risotto, a Greek salad, drinks. Everything was well prepared and delicious. We couldn't have asked for a better selection. It was not busy, the fod was served quickly and tasted wonderfully. We would definitely go... More
