We enjoyed an awesome Italian dinner at this small restaurant on Via Linda. This place is very small so reservation are a must. We had lasagna, veal parm and pasta with meat sauce. The pasta and lasagna were superb. The veal parm was quite good,...More

This is always our go-to destination for Italian food. The staff is very friendly and the food is absolutely delicious. I can’t stop ordering lasagna, even though there are so many other wonderful choices. We had a surprise 70th birthday dinner there for my husband...More

"Authentic" is one of the most misused words, but Tesoro truly gives you authentic Italian food: all cooked from scratch, which is why it takes long. But you can enjoy some wine from their extensive list while waiting. The place is small, only 12 tables,...More

Same dishes as in the past but something is different. The taste of the food is not what it used to be. Still a good meal but not an exceptional one

When your hostess is your waitress and your cashier you're not in for good service. Saw the reviews and had a groupon which explains why we drove 40 miles to dine here. Leisurely dining is one thing but when the only other server asks if...More

I will be back, for a small place it was really great. The pasta melted in my mouth, the seafood was fresh, and the breads were amazing.

It seems that Tesoro has changed hands. The last time we tried it the service was horrid, food mediocre and we have no plans to return. A restaurant is only a location, the people that produce the product are what's... More
