Great Italian dishes as well as very good pizza. Service is great and the two gals that own the place are a real hoot.

We were in the area just for an overnight visit to Lake Almanor. When we checked in to our hotel, my husband asked the clerk for recommendations for an Italian restaurant. She gave us 2 names. Found one but didn't stay as there were only two cars in the parking lot...never a good sign. And right across the street we... More

I have eaten here a couple of times over 10+- years and the food and people that work here are great! The pasta and pizza are very good and some of the best in the area.

I was hoping for a lot, as my friends love this place. I had the Meatball Pasta with a Sicilian Tomato Sauce. It was ok. Lots of it, and the meatballs were flavorful, but the sauce felt unremarkable. I was a little surprised that the service was poor. I had to ask if they had wine or beer, and was... More

Good food, great atmosphere, outside dining option, and locally owned. My favorite dinner is Mama's Meatballs and one of their great salads ..... and, of course, some of the garlic cheese bread! Full bar, good wine list, and many beer options too!

We live fairly close to Tantardino's and I eat there often for lunch with friends. My favorites to order are their spinach salad and a gluten free pizza with basil, peppercinis, smoked gouda cheese and cold avacado. Absolutely yummy. Sue is usually our waitress at lunch and she is always friendly and cheerful!!!

We have a vacation home about 40 miles away, but dine here a couple of times a year - worth the drive. Always good,nice service. Very casual.

The food is good, not great but it is good. Caters to families, which is fine, but loud with kids all around. Going with your family, great, business dinner, not so much.
