The place is nicely decorated with cozy atmosphere. Menu is over priced and portions could be bigger. Food is good but price wise with many other restaurants in Yonkers I would search for more reasonably priced that won’t hurt your pocket and if not same...quality may be a little better tasting.More

If you are seeking an Italian restaurant with a large menu of authentic dishes, Tombolino is the place. Service is friendly and efficient. There's a large wine list with choices to fit all budgets. Whether it's a party of two, four or more, there is...bound to be something in the menu for everyone. I have never heard any negative comments about the place from anyone who has been there. Valet parking is a plus, as street parking is problematic. Only a few minutes drive from the Raceway Casino, this is an excellent place for a great meal to celebrate your luck or forget your loses.More

This was my very first time eating at this restaurant. I ordered the shrimp meal. It was very delicious. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice also. On the day that I went to meet up with some friends to celebrate the retirement of a...fellow colleague, the restaurant had a person playing the piano. It was very nice. This is a nice restaurant to hold parties as well, as they have an upstairs room for various celebrations.More

Tombolinos sits at the busy corner of Kimball and Yonkers Avenues. Parking seems somewhat limited -- a couple of unmarked spots just in front of the restaurant and metered street parking along Yonkers Ave. Inside, one is welcomed by a newly redecorated dining area with...soft lighting, linen-clad tables, a wooden showcase and an alarmingly large TV that is sometimes distracting. We were the first dinner reservation for the evening and had the attention of the hostess, the new waitress and the restaurant manager for most of the evening. Water and bread were provided right away, and we were early enough to enjoy the mid-week happy hour prices which included $5 glasses of wine and reduced prices on appetizers. We selected the Burrata ($10) and two glasses of Cabernet to start. I typically love Burrata-based appetizers, as it’s hard to improve upon the gooey, creamy, rich pulled curd cheese. The cheese was served room temp and covered in a sweet balsamic reduction with cracked pepper, but the sliced tomato bed it sat on was hard and icicle cold, clearly just out of the fridge, and perhaps out of season. Sourcing good tomatoes during the winter can be a challenge, but serving them at the same temperature as the cheese requires just a little forethought. Our waitress was a young woman who was new to the restaurant and still learning the menu. She was however, extremely attentive and professional, as were all the staff that served us that evening. We really appreciated their vigilant, yet unobtrusive presence that ensured we didn’t lack for anything throughout our dinner. A few small things that were a little disruptive to our experience: the music being piped in overhead was punctuated by loud commercials. The dining area we were in had a giant TV just behind us with sports playing. I would have preferred a more formal setting with fewer distractions. Although we spent some time looking through the menu, two of the specials presented to us caught our attention and we decided to give them a chance. The broiled leg of lamb served with risotto ($27) and an Agnolotti served with a Bolognese sauce ($22). The lamb was near perfect – tender, moist and falling off the bone, and the side of risotto was light, fluffy and mildly creamy. The stuffed pasta was also tasty, finished with a sweet tomato sauce and enhanced by the delicate flavor of truffle oil. Of course, a little Parmesan and cracked pepper on top is nearly irresistible on any dish. There were a few minor mistakes with the menu but these were totally forgivable as the waitress was in training and the kitchen resolved these issues quickly – almost not worth mentioning due to the excellent service. For dessert we were tempted by the tiramisu. This rendition was forward on the coffee flavor, but extremely watery. More so than any other version I’ve had. Tasty none-the-less, but I would have preferred an execution that was either a little more syrupy or a little drier. It was very nicely plated with a beautiful herringbone-patterned cream/chocolate/raspberry coulis on the side. We enjoyed our dining experience at Tombolinos and would definitely come back again.More

Tombolinos has the finest Italian food & most welcoming staff around. Family owned and operated for several decades, it consistently delivers top quality meals.

A group of friends and relatives were together, and no one wanted to cook. We needed a table for 14, and these fine folks rolled out the red carpet for us. We enjoyed several well done appetizers - including buffalo mozzarella and prosciutto, stuffed mushroom...caps and eggplant rolatini - all of which I’d order again. The shrimp scampi entire, veal Marsala, rigatoni w/broccoli rabe and sausage were all good. You can’t go wrong at Tombolino!More

Typical red sauce e menu. I was not that impressed. Prices are up there on the high side. I would say dress code would be what they call business casual.
