This is always a favorite with my family. Food is delicious and service never lets us down. I highly recommend Tufano's if you have out of town guests.

From the Blackhawk jerseys hanging behind the bar to the photos hanging on the walls in Tufanos Vernon Street Tap, you will immediately feel at home in this restaurant. Once the food and drinks are delivered, you will think you died and went to heaven!...More

Recommended by a friend. We were not disappointed. Service was solid even though we were there at prime time Saturday night. We had calamari, mozzarella and tomato, linguini and red, lobster ravolli. All were top shelf. Great atmosphere on the patio. We will be back.

Born and raised with home made Italian food. Lots of red sauce, pastas, lemon chicken, and garbage salad!!!!! Been coming here for 35 years ! A small, quaint, neighborhood eatery ! Never had a bad meal. Wish there was one in Florida. I'm moving there...More
