“Delicious italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Probably our favorite local italian restaurant. Food is always consistent and delicious. I'd rate the food 5 stars but overall give it 4 because the ambiance is just average. Oh, and parking is pretty bad too. But don't let it stop you or you'll be missing a great meal!

“Great Italian food, reasonable prices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Love this place, not a 5 star restaurant but they have really good food and very reasonable prices. You'll definitely enjoy them for lunch or for dinner; make sure you make a reservation on Friday or Saturday evening, or you'll definitely have a long wait!

“Italian fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a great restaurant for Italian food. Service is good and so are the prices. Italian Family atmosphere. I would recommend for dinner any night; not a place for a "celebration" type dinner (fancy).

“Good Italian cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

TJ's has excellent garlic rolls, abundunt salad and homemade, authentic pasta dishes. The servings are plentiful and the prices are very reasonable. This is a popular place, so be prepared to wait to get a seat. Wine selections are acceptable and service is great. My families favorite is the Chicken Tosca - outstanding!
