We have gone to Tavolino many times since before it was in this location. The Tavolino salad is a good starter though I prefer the Buffalo Mozzarella Caprese best. The butternut squash ravioli is wonderful as are the lasagna and Penne al Fungi.

Dined here twice on my last visit to Tucson. Neither time was all that great. The Chipino had a very fishy flavor. The lamb shank was OK but not great. The place is very noisy inside but quite nice outside. They have propane heaters and...More

First night in Tucson we needed our Italian fix and tavolino's fit the bill. Upscale, contemporary decor with wonderful old world cuisine. We had the saltimboca and pasta Bolognese. Just superb. Great service.

Four pilots dining together. Sounds like a great story. Anyway, we started out with wine and a prosciutto/melon appetizer. Fantastic. I had a Caesar salad that was fair. Their pasta is as good as it gets. And don't miss dessert here, they are all delicious....More

We returned to Tavolino with friends and high expectations. We had a lovely table on the patio, but unfortunately we had very poor service. The waitress only occasionally dropped by and had a poor attitude from the beginning, like anything we asked for was a...More

Entrées run from $11.00 to 18.00. The lunch menu is not as extensive as the dinner menu but the offerings are similar. Also, the restaurant always has off-menu specials at both lunch and dinner.
