Based on the Certificate of Excellence and the positive reviews, we decided to try this place. This is not fine dining and not what I'd call a real Italian restaurant. The staff were very nice, the timing of the meal was fine, and our server did not disturb us by asking every few minutes if everything was good as can... More

We've been coming here forever, it seems. Extensive menu. Everything from pasta to meat to salad to pizza. Plentiful dishes with carefully prepared entrees. If you have dietary restrictions, whole wheat and gluten-free pasta are both available. Service is second to none, beyond friendly staff that at this point, recognizes my family and always welcomes us with a warm and... More

I saw this place was highly requested through Trip Advisor... Why? This place is as if Fazoli's and Olive Garden had a baby, and that baby grew up to be an adult that stopped trying at life. I'm not kidding. We thought it would be a great time, but was severely disappointed! The Chicken Floentina was $17 for what?! A... More

I gave this restaurant two stars when it first opened but decided to give it another try a few months back, and I am glad I did. Since then I have had consistently good to delicious meals there. I always order carry out so cannot address wait staff, but my food is always ready when I arrive. The big selling... More

Tino's is one of our "go-to" places. The pizza is really good. The salads are big & fresh and you can customize them. We are not crazy about any of the pasta dishes. The wait staff is very friendly and the new updated look of the interior is a nice touch and long over due. Beware: when they are busy,... More

I was in Columbia Md. for a 24 hr. bike ride and yes we like to carbo load the night before. Finding the place was the hardest as it's in what I would call a strip mall. It was all good after that. The place is kind of small but has a great ambience about it. Shak my server was... More

Can't recommend this place highly enough!!! Service, food and ambience was excellent. We were a party of 12, our waitress couldn't do enough for us and the food arrived in good time to say there was so many of us. Our water glasses were constantly topped up and we wanted for nothing! The food was absolutely delicious!!

We were in town for a lacrosse tourney on the day of the flood and kind of stumbled upon this place when our games were rained out. Wow, were we glad that we did! Service was impeccable and food was excellent. We have lived in several large cities (Chicago, London), travel frequently, and eat out frequently as well. Tino's makes... More

A group of 7 of us chose to dine at Tino’s for a birthday celebration. The check in, seating, and ordering went fine, but then we started noticing some red flags with the staff (our waitress was just fine, though). Busboys were standing in plain view of the diners, looking very bored and sweaty. They were wiping their noses with... More
