I believe in second chances and added a couple of stars!

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.

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

Tino's has an interesting, varied menu with many choices - you can even make-up your own pasta dish. They serve nice sized portions at a reasonable price. Most of the time we have food to take home. We consider Tino's our favorite local place for Italian food.

Had dinner delivered to hotel. Delivery was fast and accurate. They did not send utensils, but food was exceptional for delivery. Large variety of gluten-free dishes.

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

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
