We got pizza and salad from Tunis. The salad was crisp and fresh. There were great choices in pizza toppings so it was hard to choose. The ones we picked were delicious.

Ordered the crab-crusted cod and chicken parmigiana. The chicken was a large portion, and filling. The order was done on time and boxed nicely. Will order again (just might not get the cod as the crab crust was not really a crust).

Traveling for business and stumbled across this place. Sat at the bar,Kelly the bartender waited on me and served me a cocktail quickly. She was very busy but very attentive to me and others sitting at the bar. I ordered the special which was chicken...caprese. Lacked a tad bit in flavor/seasoning but otherwise tasty. The prices were average as expected. My only con would be, that I wish there was a place for solo eaters to sit outside and enjoy their evening meal. Other than that, I will be definitely visiting this little gem next time I am here.More

Seems their is service has been hit by Covid. Everyone seemed to be going in different directions. Atmosphere was inviting but the overall meal was average. Calamari was burnt and rubbery. Risotto was good but super rich. Might try the pizza next time.

After excitement of how good the food and atmosphere was, we made reservations to eat here. Upon arriving were told we would need to eat in the downstairs area as the upstairs dining room would not accommodate my being in a wheelchair. No problem. Except...for the fact when we went around to the downstairs to get in, there was a step up to get inside NOT wheelchair friendly. When my group went inside to ask what we were to do, the cigarette smoke was so thick it began to trigger an asthma attack on a person in my party. I myself did not go in there which is good because I am highly allergic to smoke. Now rather they allowed smoking in the area or that every single person in there smelled of smoke so badly it tainted the entire room, I don’t know. But all around this was a true disappointment. Not enough room to fit a wheelchair upstairs in main dining and not accessible for the downstairs area. I hear the food is incredible. But I will never know now, for apparently being in a wheelchair is too much of an inconvenience to make room or accessibility for.More

Our waitress Sharefah recommended the seared scallops in Alfredo linguini. I had it with a little lemon on the side which I love with seafood & linguini which is the way we had it in Florence. Mary had the house lasagna which was also excellent....With a bottle of Botega Malbec from Argentina the damage was $72 before tip which was a great deal considering the quality. Close to BDL, a great place when you park & fly.More

We stayed one night at a hotel close to this restaurant. Parking lot was full so I had to park on a side street. Outside dining was pretty full, we chose to eat inside. My wife had blackened salmon $19 and I ordered a Wisconsin...sourdough burger $13 and draft beer $7. Food was very good. Service was fine.More

This restaurant has been great for both eating-in and take-out. Most recently we have had take-out many times during the pandemic. This restaurant has been our go-to place for consistently delicious pizza. grinders and calzones. These all have been high-quality, with generous portions and reasonably-priced,...making it all a great value. We have enjoyed the pizza with roasted red peppers and hamburger, the meatball grinders and calzones. Even the calzones with just ricotta cheese, mozzarella, and provolone cheese are delicious, especially the great sauce that they come with. The service is very good, being efficient with friendly staff members, definitely very safe. We highly recommend this restaurant for both eat-in and take-out and are very glad it is in our hometown of Windsor. The restaurant is also very close to Bradley International Airport, being in a very good location to stop at both to and from the airport or if staying in the area, when traveling. The only issue that we have had is with parking during peak/ busy times. It may get busy/crowded during peak hours. So we try to avoid these times and it has been great!!More

This was my first time at TG&P, where I met two friends last night after work for dinner. I didn't know what to expect in terms of COVID-19 guidelines, but I was impressed with TG&P's interior and staff. The place was spotless, tables and diners...were spaced/seated more than 6 feet from each other, face masks were consistently worn-with notices posted about mandatory masks for even visiting the restroom during the meal, tables were disinfected between meals. Wait staff were friendly but not overbearing or annoying. Parking was tight in some spots but there were enough spaces at a busy time of evening mid-week. We were not limited to dining outside, though some people chose that option. We preferred an inside corner table/booth. I was the only one of us to order a cocktail: a Lemon Basil Martini, which was fantastic but over-priced ($9). Entrees were (meat-heavy) Edna's Lasagna ($17), Shepherd's Pie ($15), and Grilled Atlantic Salmon Salad ($15). The first two entrees could each feed three people, and came with side salads. One hot tea was $1.25, and no desserts were ordered, though we chatted a while. Our waitress encouraged us to stay as long as we liked, so we did! We were very comfortable, and the other diners appeared to be as well. Other tables seemed to order mostly pizzas, which looked piping hot and overall outstanding. In addition to the outside patrons, many came to pick-up family-size Take-Out orders, which are available online and feature bigger versions of the entrees I mentioned. The dine-in menu is heavy on pizza (obviously), burgers, grinders, and finger foods, but there are vegan and vegetarian options as well. Our total with tax and before tip was $62.15, which doesn't seem like much until you realize I was the only one of the three of us that had a cocktail, we had no appetizers, and skipped dessert. Because we're generous tippers, the total amount paid for our entrees in the end seemed excessive. Two of us had leftovers at least, and we all enjoyed the food and relaxed atmosphere at TG&P. Bottom Line: We all would return here just for the casual environment, strong attention to COVID-19 guidelines, good food, and welcoming, non-pressuring staff.More
