“Grew up going to this place. It was my fathers favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

I haven't been going here since it was remodeled, but I have fond memories from when my family went there when I was growing up.

“One of Des Moines Top Ranked Restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

If you like Italian Cuisine then you will love Tursi's Latin King Restaurant. Authentic Italian family recipes from Italy, coupled with a great atmosphere and awesome wine selection - need I say more. When in Des Moines put it at the top of your to-do list.

“Amazing authentic Italian in Iowa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Wonderful ambiance, attentive staff, outrageously good food! One of the best in Des Moines! Be sure to make reservations if you are planning to go to an event after, it can be crowded, so give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the experience.

“An East side landmark.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Serving Italian Cuisine on the East Side of Des Moines for over 50 years, Tursi's has grown from a buffet style eatery to a restaurant whose menus and atmosphere are first rate. Excellent menu choices well prepared and served.
