I heard this was a great Italian restaurant. But no one told me about all the Italian wine varietals on the menu. Enjoyed a bottle of wine, beat salad, and cioppino.

I recommend you go there starving and choose the four-course prix fixe option (not available on Fridays/Saturdays). My favorite appetizers include mussels, fried calamaris and grilled artichokes. For salad, go with beet salad. For entree try Butternut Squash Tortellaci (a little sweet). This is a wine place so any of the house wines are great. Service is usually very good.

Enjoyed a nice meal last night....Gluten Free Salmon with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Split a yummy salad with figs, pistachios and Gorgonzola cheese - very delicious! The heat wasn't working last night - definitely very chilly in the restaurant. We all kept our jackets on!

We have been to Tavolino on a number of occasions, both as a couple and as part of a medium-sized (about 10 people, ranging in age from 5 to 70) birthday celebration. The décor is traditional, as is the menu, but the staff is pleasant and efficient, and the food is very good

My group of 7 almost did consume the full menu - lots of drinks, apps, entrees and desserts. All so good! Recommend the wild boar gnocchi and crab cake appetizers, mussels, steak and ravioli entrees, and dessert wines and mini chocolate mousse for dessert. Restaurant is very spacious and service is gracious and competent. Can't go wrong!!

A good spot to go with the kids. Something for everyone in a good environment... and a good bar for the adults. Like the selection of beers on tap. The food is good enough. Some things are fine, find your favorites. Our crab cakes were nice. Liked the artichoke soup.

My colleague and I were visiting from out of town and ate here every night that we could (except the first when we were unaware of it's existence). Being a pescoterian, I loved the menu choices There were plenty of non meat options. I loved the kale salad, the truffle fries, the roasted beet salad with goat's cheese was particularly... More

I have celiac disease. An allergy to wheat and gluten and it's cross contamination. I ordered only a salad but was assured that it would be made with different gloves, knives, no cheese, etc. I think I also got shrimp on it. They were very careful and I DID NOT GET SICK. A PLUS especially when you are traveling. Trying... More

As a local, I always give the local restaurants the benefit of the doubt. Lately Tavalino's has consistently blown it, with last night being the third strike. I ordered take out, and it was very disappointing. The chicken parm was cold, half of it had cheese, the other half not. There was no sauce on it, so it was dry,... More

Not sure how Tavolino is #5 in Westborough. Hands down my favorite restaurant near home (northborough). Awesome pizzas, great pasta options and always a great entree selection. Indoor and outdoor seating. A considerable beer and wine selection. Always some seasonal / nightly specials. Top notch!!
