“Always original, fresh ingredients, informal...service may vary but overall a small gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2012

We go to this place on and off on occasion when we are like today in Sutton. In the summer, patio is nice in the winter, the inside is very cosy.

What impresses me every time is the tremendous efforts deployed in the kitchen to vary the daily specials, to try new combination, to incorporate local fresh products. Today soup of the day for example was a mix of apple, courge and cannel. Was almost flavoured like a gruau mix...the Pizza I had, was including meat sauce and banana peppers, and my wife pizza inluded some feta and other greek style ingredients. The dessert was a dark chocolate pie with a banana crust using uncooked ingredients (do not ask me how it was prepared byt the result was just spectacular).

The place is casual and very welcoming of kids. Of course, not being part of the local crowd, I experienced over the years mixed quality service and also sometimes found the door closed during regular business hours...I guess this has to do with operating using a limited staff to put the money where it should be, in your plate.

Il Duetto is probably the other italian restaurant worthing stopping by in the region, but offers a completely different set up, much more traditional and formal. So for families with younger kids, Tartin Izza is a very sound choice where the adults benefit from creative food in a very casual environment.

“Good food but bad service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2011

The meal started ok, with decent service and little wait time, but half-way through the meal, our server went home without telling us and it seems like the other servers loosely took over our tables, but with little focus.

After that, service was terrible. Everyone in our section was trying to attract the servers' attention, in most case unsuccessfully. All the while, one of the server (who turned out to be the owner!) was at a table chatting with some customers for over 20 minutes, completely ignoring other customers. We gave up on coffee and desert and went to the counter to pay our bill, which took even more time to materialize.

Unfortunate that the one person who seemed the least concerned with customers well being was the owner.

“Good, honest food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

I eat regularly at Tartin'Izza and have never been disapointed. Their salade nicoise is great - generous, fresh ingredients and a really tasty dressing. The thin crust pizzas are excellent and the daily special of soup then a half pizza with salad is great value. They can sometimes get a little overwhelmed so we tend to go lunchtime or earlier in the evening and always reserve. the terrace in the summer is a great spot. Its buzzy, lively and packed with locals.

“Quite good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2011

A nice place for an informal lunch/dinner. The food is quite good but service is sometime slow and not so attentive. Nothing great but nothing really wrong either. The patio is quite pleasant.

“Good food priced right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2011

After splurging on a number of dinners we were looking for a 'value meal'. We found that at Tartinizza. Great atmosphere, very good prices and good food.

This is a very casual place so if you are looking for something formal, this is not it. But if you are looking for a comfortable dining experience, this is it.

Would definitely go back if we return to the Sutton area.
