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

We visited this as part of a Group and the food was Good and the service excellent. They seemed to have a number of items and a real family ownership model.

This is a well run family owned restaurant. The food in great and we love the service. It's not a chain-type place so you get personal attention.

Nice atmosphere. Good service. Food - average. Had vegetable bisque as an appetizer and is was very watery, no character. Waitress agreed. Entre's were good but nothing special. Borderline value. Ok but could be much better.

Meh. Nothing special at all with the food. Service was good and the establishment is nice but the food is safe and very middle-of-the-road. The caesar's salad was passable, the potatoes had absolutely no flavor and the steak was good but not great. The steak was about the same quality as a run-of-the-mill chain restaurant.

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
