“Tutti Mare all day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Great family owned restaurant. The food is delicious and plentiful. The salads are very big, enough for diner. The best dish in my opinion is the Tutto Mare. A delicious mix of pasta and seafood. Location is quite and parking had never been an issue for us. We prefer to go weekdays between 5 and 5:30, it starts to get crowded later on.

“Best Homemade Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We went to Tillio’s last night and had some of the best Italian we had ever tasted! I took the wife and kids and we received excellent service. The server was very friendly and he suggested we try the fried ravioli. My son loved it! We all shared the Peter’s large pizza. I love homemade pizza and this one did not disappoint. Awesome crust and fresh toppings. For dessert, we had the Tiramisu. All I can say is wow! Dinner for 4 and the bill was under $40, highly recommended.

“VALUE++”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

On a recent Friday night we ate out on the deck and had the typically wonderful meal. The pasta special was a penne with mushrooms and chicken in a tomato basil sauce. As usual it was tasty and a large portion. But here's the thing: $10.50! Pasta with a protein in a sit down restaurant for $10.50. Incredible bargain. And besides, it is a warm family owned place where the owner is visible in the kitchen (always wearing a baseball cap) and his wife is the hostess and often his sons are working on the floor. Go here!

“A Family Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Nancy and her family have the best restaurant service and food around. This place has heart and always makes us feel welcome. We've been coming to this location since they opened and before that when they were at Sorrento's since the 1980's. Recently the Chicken Piccata has been my favorite and the salads are amazing.

Great food, great family.

Annette,

We're proud of the family-friendly atmosphere and great food we provide here, and we thank you for being part of that tradition over the years. That kind of loyalty is rare these days, so we take it as a huge compliment. Excellent choice on the Chicken Piccata, too. We look forward to the next opportunity to see you. Thanks so much for the great review.

All the best,

Matt, Manager

“Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

My family has been going to Tullio's restaurant since it opened over 15 years ago. It is in a great location away from downtown, with free parking provided behind it. The menu is varied, offering pasta, pizza, and other italian dishes, but also includes a salmon entree and other non-Italian entrees. The entrees include rice and fresh vegetables, which are fresh and crispy. My favorite entree is the veal saltimboca, which is tender and prepared with a delicious sauce. The portions are generous, so be prepared to bring some home. With all full size entrees, a choice of minestrone soup or salad is included. The minestrone soup is delicious and full of vegetables and potatoes. Tullio's also offers all of their menu items to go and we often stop by to pick up a quart of their delicious meat sauce or minestrone soup to enjoy at home. The pizza is loaded with items and well worth a trip to pick up or order with soup and salad at the restaurant. Tullio's is family owned by people in the area, offers delicious food selections, and I highly recommend it to couples, families, friends, and even solo diners.
