When you have a number of fine Italian eateries to choose from, you are faced with a delicious problem. Tesoro turns out fantastic pizzas, delicious pastas and other entrees that will satisfy most folks' hunger. Check out their quality wine list, too. You have to try them for lunch and dinner.

Was able to get a table for two right away. Larger parties had to wait. Recommend a reservation - its was always busy. every one in the place stopped by to ask if we were OK and how was the food. Delicious.

This restaurant serves home style Italian food. It has a warm friendly atmosphere which can be a little loud in the main dining room but is quieter in the room on the right. House red was a Valpolicella at a reasonable $38 for a litre. The four of us shared a pizza as an appetizer. It had a thin crust... More

We have eaten here a couple of times and never been disappointed. The ingredients are fresh, the selection is broad enough to please anyone and the service is friendly. The pastas with cream sauces are really tasty!

We were in town for a short visit and asked a local to recommend a quiet Italian restaurant. The restaurant is cozy, clean and bright, staff are efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. The menu covers all of the basic dishes one would expect and the quality is very good. There wasn't anything that was outstanding that would make this a go... More

I had booked a table for two by phone, and on arrival the restaurant did not have the booking. We were ushered to a table in a rush, luckily we were early. The server told us the specials so fast that neither I nor my companion were able to make out what was on offer. Upon asking to repeat the... More

Short on ambience, the Tesoro experience was worsened for us by poor service. This restaurant was hot, noisy, and cramped (we were less than a foot away from the next table). The menus were filthy. Our server was curt, impatient and unfriendly, which made for an unpleasant visiting environment. To be fair, the server working the other side of the... More

Delicious, creative dishes that satisfy the palate. Be sure to make reservations in advance because this little place is busy!

I called to reserve a couple weeks ahead of time. Our party size changed a few times and they were very accommodating and polite about it when I called. Impressive service. Our server was great- attentive, friendly, smiling. Everything was correct. The food was very good; the bruschetta was enjoyed by all and my chicken supreme was super juicy. Generous... More
