Excellent Specials

Love the specials they have during the week before 6PM. Half price pasta or pizza is a great buy as is the dinner special and drink specials. The food is tasty and plentiful. The staff is friendly and they take reservations.

Even the bread that they toast. For you is amazing. So about the food there the decor is old school but I promise you if you want Italian food... More

You know how you have that one local place that feels like home when you walk in? Well...Tuzzio's is that place for me. I've been a customer for over 40 years (!!!) and am never disappointed. The front room has a bar and booths...the back room is tables only. So let's see...the service is good and staff is friendly. I... More

Amazing service, amazing food, and very italian. The Caesar Salad is HUGE and Baked Zitti and Ravioli is AMAZING. The area doesn't have that many "good" restaurants but Tuzzio's definitely lives above that.

I've been going to Tuzzio's for over 20 years. The dish I order the most is Shrimp Ravioli with Alfredo Alla Tuzzio Sauce listed on the menu under "Chef;s Specialties". I have noticed the place has been going down a bit but still hung in there. Last night when I ordered my standard Shrimp Ravioli, I was so disappointed. First,... More

Visited again after 20 years away and found it just a good and satisfying as in the past. Local Family restaurant with good basic Italian menu. This is the place that will always satisfy the Italian in anyone. Solid hearty meals served by people who care in a neighborhood setting.

We ate here with friends and were happy with the food and ridiculously large portions! We had enough to eat for lunch the next day. White sangria was great! Pleasant staff.

Food used to be consistently good but now it's just fair. The interior needs some serious updating and there is no atmosphere at all. Place was empty on a Saturday night. The only reason I might eat here again is for their chopped salad.
