Oh sure, I added some color to my plate with the dozens of pasta and potato salads, but let's admit it, I was there for the meat, and it was amazing. The Prime rib is amazing, don't forget to grab some horseradish, it's on top...More

Good food in a casual setting. Wonderful buffet with many choices as well as an extensive menu. Service is very good/attentive and a favoite place to eat for years.

The roadwork from the last 5 years is over and Tinucci's is now more accessible then ever. Carnivores have made their Saturday Prime rib buffet famous. The lasagna and baked beans from the deli are great take home treats. If they delivered???? I'd be happy!

I really didn't think it was possible to serve such crap and stay in business. It is a total scam. The ribs were dryed-out, over done and tasteless. I've seen better salad bars at a funeral lunch, really.

The food is not tasty. It is usually cold. The steating area is dark and uninviting. The staff are unfriendly. The quick dining area is a bit better than the Sunday brunch but all is still very pricy!

The best salad bar I can remember in a long, long time, that alone is worth future visits. By the time it came to the main courses I was stuffed! The prime rib was fantastic, the special of the night chicken pasta for my wife...More

I like to think of Tinucci's as a local supper club, with menu choices as well as the buffet. They also have a carry out deli area with lunchtime specials, desserts and breads. They also have an eat-in area at the deli. My food favorite...More

Apparently this place has a reputation locally, and they do special buffet nights which friends have told us about. We just stopped in one evening for a family meal, when the buffet wasn't on. It was really pretty awful - kind of truck-stop/ school canteen...More
