BUSY ON SATURDAYS

Don't try to do a night out on Saturdays without a reservation. They were telling people at 7:00 that they can be seated at 8:15. Food was excellent. They had a special spinach salad which I could eat all day. Unfortunately nobody at our table finished their salads before the main dish... read more

We had visited a few months ago and had been disappointed with the food we ordered. However, this lunch was very good. The service was professional and friendly. The wine selections of pinot grigio and chardonnay were delicious. My partner ordered the eggplant parmesan and it was well prepared and appetizing (I tasted a bite.) I ordered the basic burger....

The managers at this spot are very good. The staff has been there a while so it's nice. Frustrating when you get to know managers, servers, etc. at a place and then they leave. Fine chow tonight... crab cakes, salads, pizza, veal. Fine service.

With reservations on a Saturday night, we got there around 20 mins early thinking we could sit at the bar before our friends arrived. That plan didn't work as the bar was packed, but the hostess quickly sat us at our table instead. Nicely done. Glutton free menu - scored points. Great glass of Cab - $10 - Acceptable. Fresh...

My husband and I eat dinner at the bar at Tavolinos at least once a week. The bartender Lindsey gives top notch service and the atmosphere is very inviting. The buffalo chicken pizza is our favorite along with the Tuscan wings.

This is a very good Italian restaurant in the center of Westborough. We have been going for a while and love the food and the wait staff and management team are great. The quality is very good and consistent and the prices are reasonable. The assortment of deserts in the small size is great for trying many different deserts.

Visited Tavolino for lunch today. The physical space of the restaurant is very comfortable and the service in the bar area, excellent. The wine we ordered was delicious. However, we then ordered the Lump Blue Crab Cakes with lemon-caper aioli to share to begin our meal. The cakes had a very odd, unidentifiable seasoning and the aioli was virtually nonexistent....
