From the moment a lovely young lady showed us to our table until our tall, good looking waiter brought our check, it was a wonderful evening. The restaurant is located in in an interesting area architecturally and nicely landscaped. The food options are varied, Italian, but varied. Lots of salad and entree choices. Our friends had been there previously and... More

Tavolino offers an intriguing combination of lunch with a two hour conversational Italian lesson(s). It is a thoroughly enjoyable experience and an opportunity to eat your way through the entire lunch menu. Food and service are excellent. The chicken roasted in the wood fired pizza oven is my favorite although you can not go wrong with the pizzas, salads, or... More

Nothing special at all about this restaurant during happy hour. A few $6 glasses of wine but most others are overpriced as are cocktails that aren't on the happy hour menu. Pizza was tough but taste was okay and the mista salad was average. Possibly I expect too much having recently returned from a month in Italy. Dismal service on... More

Ten-fold, this is now our favorite Italian restaurant ever!! Tavolino out-shined all of the dining... More

My wife and I had dinner at Tavolino last night. I can't speak for my wife, but I believe this is my favorite Italian restaurant in Tucson. We had another great experience -- fine food and great service. The food: We split a Tavolino salad ($9.25) -- plenty of salad for each of us. For entrees, my wife had Tagliatelle... More

This past weekend my wife and I organized a group of 12 for dinner and to celebrate 2 birthdays. Tavolino was the perfect choice. We went to the restaurant to see about availability and how they would seat 12 people. The restaurant is well appointed, nice bar area, has a private dining room plenty of room. They suggested that the... More

An impressive place as soon as you enter and we sat at the bar for a few started drinks were waiting for a party to arrive. We were made very welcome and served with some very classy glasses of wine and beers. Good service from the greeters and waiters alike and a good choice of drinks for all tastes. Italian... More
