They are always way WAY to packed with people for how low quality of food they have. Foods very bland unless you’re a person who doesn’t like flavor. They don’t even put enough food in their to go meals. NOT WORTH IT FOR THEIR PRICES...AT ALL and what they call a slice is really a sliver. LmaoMore

Our family of 6 ate dinner here in June 2020. The restaurant was gracious enough to seat us quickly despite not having a reservation. I strongly suggest making a reservation if you’d like to enjoy the outdoor seating! The portions were very generous, and the...pizza was especially good. They have some creative combinations that my foodie daughter and son especially liked; the kitchen did a half and half pizza combo for them of the Smoke Chaser and Spicy Santa Fe, both of which were fabulous. The waitstaff was friendly and professional, and our family enjoyed drawing and writing on the paper table covering while we waited. If we ever go that direction again, we will certainly eat at Tantardino’s!More

We had a group of 7 and we ordered by phone. The pizza was superb The toppings were plentiful and their sauce was delicious. We ordered a large pizza on regular crust. The service was quick and personable. The price was a bit much.

Ok food, no masks in sight. Popular place in the area, very busy. We ate outside on their deck, which was nice. None of waiters wore masks. Only about 10% of people arriving wore masks. Food was ok. Spouse had pasta primavera, very yummy. I...had lasagne, which was ok but bland. Needed more seasoning. Tried to order carrot cake for dessert but hey were out. If you don’t care about Covid safety rules, then this is an ok place. Otherwise better skip it for now.More

Arrived looking at a empty establishment . When we said no upon being asked if we had a reservation the young euro styled greeter became rude and said I will have to see if I can find a table. Food served was edible nothing to...rave about. Service was not one expects when paying too much for Italian food. One day we will go back everyone can have a off day. This visit was lack luster and not during the peak of tourist season. Honestly expected better service. Perhaps next time will be a better day.More

I had read the reviews regarding this being locals favorite and expected more. Service was friendly and great. Food was okay.

We used to live in Italy, so we know a good thin-crust pizza when we eat one. We were given bum info not to make a reservation, and when we got there, the tables were full with a 30-minute wait. So we ended up at...the bar, where we not only had a terrific pizza with veggies and feta, we met a kindred soul who'd also had an international life. Now what more could you ask? By the way, they also serve other Italian dishes, which we'll have to sample next time we're in the area.More

A local resident sent us to Tantardino’s, saying it was the only restaurant in the area that was outstanding! And we loved it! In fact, we came twice in three days for dinner! Stacey, one of the owners, is on top of every table and...customer’s wishes. She greets you like a long lost friend and treats each guest with TLC! BTW, Stacey and her husband are the new owners, continuing on with the previous recipes, and business is thriving!!! Don’t miss this hidden treasure for lunch or dinner!!! ***reservations are a must for dinner!More

We were amazed how packed and popular this restaurant was given its relatively remote location. Once we met the staff and tried the food, however, it was easy to see why Tantardino's is so popular. The pastas were excellent, and we had the best brownie...sundaes for dessert. The hostess squeezed our family of three in despite not having reservations, possibly because it was our wedding anniversary. I wouldn't leave that to chance, however, and strongly recommend reservations, especially for a weekend evening. Everyone for miles and miles apparently knows that this is the place to eat.More
