Fresh With Awesome Service But.. More Standards Items on Menu Needed

First, the quality of food and freshness was superb. The service spot on. Table was always cleared between dishes and new silverware placed. Your napkins is refolded when you come back from the rest rooms. However, I was disappointed in the selection of the old time favorites. I love new... read more

Always try to get Mickey the Bartender to make your cocktails. He comes up with really fresh, inventive seasonal ideas that are wonderful! Sitting at the bar is always fun because there are always nice people to chat with! My favorites include the chef's choice antipasti, Arancini, and any fish or steak they're serving. The tiramisu is excellent, as is... More

Very nice dinner tonight. Perfectly cooked risotto primavera and the special steak of the day... an excellent ribeye with mashed and asparagus w/and onion sauce and crumbled cheese.

The service and ambiance here are great, but you get very small portions for the price. There are many places in the North End where you can get similar or better quality food in larger portions for less.

I tend to head here around every 3 weeks and pretty much stick to my reliables. The pastas, the pizzas, the polpette, the buffalo mozz, steak special when its a preparation to my liking. I've found if I stray it's a little hit or miss. The chicken for example, can be very good, or thin and overcooked. The apps I... More

Over the past few years we have visited Tomasso a few times and have enjoyed it enough to return. We live in the next town over, so it makes for a great weekday evening out. We went on a Wednesday night and the restaurant was about 1/2 full. We were seated right away at a small (too small) table against... More

We are qualified critics, my g/f and I. We know quality food, and she knows the restaurant business. Tomasso's was perfect. We were waited on by five different people, including a main server. Everyone was keen on making our experience pleasant. 'No problem to sample a few wines before purchasing a bottle. All staff were very polite and accommodating. Fresh... More

Excellent dinner at Tomasso's. Shared a proscuitto pizza as an app... perfectly done. Then the excellent NY Strip steak, the steak for the night, served with spinach and new potatoes. Wine by the glass was a perfect accompaniment.

This used to be one of my absolute favorite places in the states back in the 2007 - 2009 time frame when the very talented executive chef, Justin Malnick was at the helm. Then an exceptional creative presentation of authentic northern Italian cuisine that always delighted. It was such a fun and interesting place with great wine and grappa tastings.... More
