Reviewed December 2, 2012

Serving great food with an Italian bent. The coffee is always reliable as is the pasta. Ask about Mama Tosolini's tiramasu - yum!

“Good breakfast”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Had a nice Sunday breakfast on the outdoor patio at Tosolini's, which is on the central ring road of the 'Civic' neighborhood in Canberra. Close to hotels and the Canberra Center. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was hearty enough. I looked at the evening menu, which looked fine.

I would not hesitate to go to Tosolini's again for breakfast.

“Great Italian food”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We stumbled across this place when we were with some overseas business collegues looking for somewhere to have dinner.
The service, food and wine was great - it was a balmy night we sat outside enjoying the warmth of the night - drinking red wine and eating really good pasta. A really good dine for a relaxing business dinner.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

Been here many times. Todays visit was very disappointing. Inconsistent with previous experiences. Something important has changed. The coffee was only about 45 degrees...cold. The tiramisu portion was half of what it used to be but since its quality and flavour was only half is what it used to be, I give it a 25% score.

So sad. Won't be back. To make things worse this morning I brought family from interstate bragging about the tiramisu only to be embarrassed by this place.

Wrong.
