We've been here a few times, without disappointment. Both service and food is very good. Whether it be pizza or plated meals, everything has always been consistent. Always a decent place to grab a meal in Newtown.

Not only that the food is great, the attitude and kind hearted owner accommodated two wheelchair customers by giving up a table for 7 persons to serve 3 customers of which two are in wheelchair. How wonderful that is! A month ago I had dinner there too. The taste of the food I ordered was not so tasty as I... More

This restaurant has a varied Italian menu, nice ambiance, and an outgoing friendly wait staff. I had the fettuccine alfredo and it did not disappoint. The vinegrette dressing on the green salad was spectacular! My friend had a lemon chicken dish that I tasted and look forward to ordering the next time.

We've driven past Tambasico's many times and picked up pizza and pasta to go on occasion. Finally, we got to dine in! We decided to stop by, without reservations, on a holiday weekend. The manager was very friendly when we arrived and explained they had a table available without a reservation but only for a little over an hour. This... More

We had fried calamari which I would rate in my top 5... was very crispy and delicious... not chewy at all. Also had veal parm with angel hair; pork osso buco; ravioli; chicken salad; lasagna and everything was very good... My salad did have a bit too much dressing but otherwise good. The service was very friendly but a bit... More

A local favorite for Italian food and pizza in a family friendly and pleasant setting. Very good service and a fairly good selection of menu options plus specials - all at reasonable prices.

We went there last night for dinner with another couple. The 4 of us each had different dishes, The food was served hot and was very good. Everyone enjoyed their dinners. Portions were large. Three of us brought home leftovers.
