Good food good atmosphere

I was on a project here in Texas and had the good fortune of it being close to my sister. We chose this place because of past reviews and an outdoor patio area where it tends to be a little quieter. This way my sister and I were able to have long conversations without straining my ears. I'm a... read more

Pretty pedestrian Italian food. My wife had spaghetti and meatballs and I had the half moon ravioli. Both were OK but not worth getting again. The staff and service were pretty good, however.

We went to La Trattoria Tuscano for a date night dinner on a Tuesday. The atmosphere was very plain. Our server was very good. He was attentive without hovering and gave us good service. Now to the food. My husband ordered spaghetti and meatballs - should be safe. However, shortly after beginning his meal a fly crawled out from under... More

The atmosphere is nice and the staff is friendly and very accommodating. Patio is quite pleasant with a parking lot veiw. The menu is not incredibly creative but it has a good variety of choices without going over board. I was taken a back at the wine list for a restaurant in a suburban strip center. No budget selections really:... More

I patronized this restaurant heavily after opening. The waiters are energetic, but the menu look has changed along with the quality of the food. Tough and unevenly cooked chicken breast, cheaply done Caesar and the marinara has become more bland. The best thing on the menu is the mussels linguini and on our recent visit, it was missing the basic... More

Ate here last night, and we won't be back. The place was packed, so we thought that was a good sign--didn't mind the brief wait to be seated. Once we were seated, we apparently became invisible. Waiters attentively served tables around us that were seated after us, and we finally flagged down a server who brought us water, bread and... More

Some friends and I came after work for dinner, we all enjoyed our varied dishes. Lasagne and meatballs were very good, as was the fish special, I would recommend this place for couples, friends or business.

Friendly, relaxed atmosphere. I'm there a couple times a month with a Mah Jongg group and they fall over themselves to accommodate us. They have a separate room for "events". The food is very good and the Key Lime pie is to die for!!

Atmosphere/ambiance - three gold stars. Wait staff-very helpful and friendly, quick service. And they have a wonderful fried zucchini just like I crave. The sauces are authentic and tasty so why on earth is the chicken Marsala and chicken piccata served with blah-frozen-tasting-rubberized chicken? Very disappointing for such a pricey ($16) dish. I'll go back for soup or salad (both... More
