Nice menu with unique offerings as well as some traditional Italian. My favorite is the Pork Chops. they are thick and juicy prepared perfectly. Always exceptional bread. The flavors are evident by the aroma always that greets you on your way to your table! One of my favorite dining experiences!

When Tavolino opened years ago in a small strip mall in Tucson, we were thrilled. The food was fabulous. The owner walked around the restaurant to chat and check on food quality. That was years ago. Since then, Tavolina moved to a much larger spot. And then, the owner disappeared. The quality of the food has fallen. Even with a... More

We went there for our anniversary with friends and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent. We had a hard time what to eat as there were so many interesting entrees. The wine selection was outstanding

We have had business dinners here as well as dinner with good friends. We also have had a "mixer" for work here a couple of times. Service is always good and the selections are very nice.

We arrived at the beginning of Happy Hour to have a late lunch or light snack. It was very inconvenient for them, even though there were other customers and plenty of staff.

Haven't been in years but decided to give it another try. The food was much better than the last visit and the decor is still very nice. My wife had the Tilapia special and I had the menu salmon. Great variety of wine by the glass. I'm not sure if they wanted my table for two for something but both... More

My wife and I literally live 200 yards from Tavolino. Though we have gone many times, this is the first time we have gone in over a year. The reason is that someway/somehow falls short in the value equation. For example, last night, my wife and friend ordered two of their several pasta dishes and they were very good. on... More

Elegant, relaxed restaurant in the Catalina Foothills. A noisy group came in while I was waiting for my guest. The staff picked up on it and volunteered to move us to a quiet area. The duck salad was great. Always reliable food at a good value.
