I attend an annual conference- I found this restaurant last year and could not wait to return. I was very disappointed - I had the special veal chop and I have had better for less money! Marsala sauce was tasteless, they used canned mushrooms, stuffed...More

I recently hosted four friends at Tartufo, where I had never eaten before. I picked it more for its location than for any other reason, though I did check the menu when I made the reservation. It was superb in every respect, beginning with the...More

The food here truly reminds me of Italy - fresh, simple and always extremely tasty! The waiters are always friendly - pay the right amount of attention. Every time I eat here the food is wonderfully consistent!

We've been to Tartufo several times and the food is always outstanding. The restaurant can be a little noisy but it's small and quaint.

I was excited to try this after reading so many great reviews. However, we had 3 pasta dishes, and each was lacking in taste. Tagliatelle carbonara was slopping in a cream sauce, lacked any pepper and used thin bacon chips such as you buy in...More

Step into this Italian restaurant and you feel like you have transported to Pescara Italy. Burrata and prosciutto were very tasty. Lobster Arrabbiata was a new twist. It was good but could have been more spicy. Nonetheless, the service and Italian wine list made for...More
