Nice decor very busy restaurant for a Saturday night. We did not see the draw red sauce was very bland and pasta mushy. Sad when my wife and I walked out we both said the best part of the meal was the bread.

Tartufo is a busy place, even on a Sunday night. The menu is varied and the wine list is pretty good at relatively reasonable prices. The food was fine for a neighborhood place, but the service was very slow.

Tartufo is a wonderful community restaurant. They don't try too hard but the food is nonetheless consistently excellent and the vibe is very pleasant. It's a great place to go on a chilly evening for a bit of nice company and warmth.
