“Wonderful Evening @ Tappo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

We were a party of 20 and the staff was very attentive. Their menu offered a large variety of dishes, prepared as ordered. Great place for a special occasion so worth the prices.

“Not real italian!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Why? Although many of the dishes are very very nice (that's why we brought friends on our second visit) to be Italian it must have highly friendly hospitality and caring efficient service. We have dined many times in Italy in so many different restaurants..large and tiny. When you wait 1/2 hour to ask for a cup of coffee (no staff in sight) then it comes back 20 minutes later, cold, you eventually get someone to zap it and it comes back cold again (not just a little cool), then you wait forever for a check..you become embarrassed that you brought friends. That IS NOT the Italian way. Owner, you could have a great restaurant. Don't pinch pennies on a wait staff.

“What are the other reviewers talking about?!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

We ate here once and it was more than enough. Food was spottie at best, small portions, and expensive. My entree was not eaten other than a bite or two. While I try to be positive in reviews, I cannot be when it comes to this restaurant. Were the other reviewers relatives?
By the way, the owner WAS there when we ate at the restaurant...

“REAL Italian cooking !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Once again, we had an unbelievable meal at Tappo. The roasted beets with goat cheese are fabulous and of course, the calamari and octopus are wonderful. Choosing the entree is the most difficult part, because one entree is better than the next ! Tappo offers so many different things each day of the week,so we keep returning for another delicious meal. It's a little bit out of the way, but well worth the trip! Buon appetito !
