Cool little place that is tucked into what looks to be an otherwise quiet neighborhood. They were quite busy when we arrived, but they were able to seat us quickly. Rooms like this can get a little loud, but sounds seems to be absorbed, and...More

My husband and I really enjoy eating at their restaurant, and honestly don't think we have ever came across a menu item that we didn't like. We decided for our wedding that was in June 2017 to cater through them. It was very reasonable priced,...More

Our meal was great and our server, Cody, could not have been more attentive and professional. He made sure he was always available. Although it is a small restaurant it has the old country feel . We had early reservations(4:30) and had no wait.

This is a cozy restaurant, so be prepared to wait or have a reservation for busy times. They have awesome specials every night that can sell out. But don't worry, the regular menu has great options as well. The wine selection changes and is very...More

Friendly welcoming staff, cozy romantic vibe, simple well done meals. We love it here. Burrata appetizer is a must. I prefer the thin crust pizza. Enormous tiramisu.

This neighborhood restaurant is off the beaten path a bit, but it's well worth a visit. We were actually there pretty late in the day, and they were still serving with a smile. Food was excellent. Limited seating, but has a nice homey feel.

This place was recommended by our hotel manager at Sheridan's. Small place with limited seating so reservations are highly recommended. Everything was great from the food to the service. Dishes we had were: zuccha, lasagna, scallops and the bolognese. The tagliatelle with the bolognese was...More

Came here to meet friends for dinner. Was told "5 minutes" for a table at least 10 times. Nothing but people running around scattered and flustered. Finally gave up and left. No one cared. No I don't care and will never return.

Our service was very good, food was well prepared and quite tasty. My 10 year old boy finished his entire portion of lasagna. And my very picky 8 year old boy liked the spaghetti. Nothing whatsoever to complain about. Things have really turned around here.

We had reservations for a Saturday evening in May. It was busy, but not overwhelmingly so. Our server was very kind and knowledgeable. He did a great job checking in on us. I ordered the pomodoro and it was wonderful! Can't wait to go back...More

As Don V noted, you'll see a mix of dress "levels" at Tenuta's. Our group was in casual clothes - shirts and sweaters, jeans or khakis for the guys, jeans and nice tops for the women. That was a Friday night, arguably a more... More
