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

Tino's is hidden away in a strip mall, like many good restaurants in Columbia. They offer good food, generous portions, and half-price bottles of wine on Sunday....what's not to like? Even better, this is a locally owned restaurant, not a chain.

Food was good, but not outstanding. I had Veal Saltimbocca which was a little sweet for my taste. We had meatballs to start which were very good, but not as hot in temperature as I like. Friends had been here several times and liked their food. Waitress was good. Best part was that the meal was not outrageously expensive for... More

Excellent restaurant, from ambience, superb staff, friendliness, and presentation to absolute deliciousness. We were visiting my brother and sister-in-law who live in Columbia and they took us to Tino's, a favorite of theirs, for a really quite wonderful dinner. I had shrimp parm, my brother shrimp and asparagus risotto, and the other two had equally superb chicken entrees. Generous pour... More

Amazing food - everything is homemade. When we sat down we were asked if it was our first time there and since it was the waiter Kevin, let us know dessert was on the house (nice touch). We started with an app - moZz caprese - so yummy! Then my husband and I both had the create your own pasta... More

I liked the many choices with the create your own pasta entree that my friend ordered. I will look forward to that on my next visit to Tino's. All of our entrees were delicious along with the very fresh side salads we each enjoyed as a starter. Ingredients were fresh and very flavorful as well as attractively presented. It's always...
