Happy we made reservations because even on a Monday they became very crowded! We were celebrating a birthday - arrived in time for happy hour with reduced prices on beverages and appetizers which was great. Food was prepared perfect and enjoyed by all of us. The waitress was attentive but not pesty. We will be back to try the pizza... More

Full disclaimer: I am an older, overweight male who loves to eat. What I prefer is meat and potatoes, and plenty of each. In my 67 years on this earth, I have yet to meet a food portion I cannot handle. My gluttony is two fold - I eat because I am hungry, and later, I eat more just for... More

A little pricy in area of wines, but entrees were prepared perfectly. We visited on a very busy Friday and service kept up. Pizza, spaghetti and meatballs, soups and salads were all made well with great ingredients. Will be back

Tenuta's is great! I used to live in the area surrounding Tenuta's and loved having this small restaurant just a few blocks away. My food was always great and I was always happy with the service at the tables and bar. It's a smaller restaurant, so it fills up quickly, but week nights tend to be a bit slower. I've... More

...this is where you need to go to remember. So as a guy that deeply enjoys European dinning (been there, got the T-shirt...literally), Tenuta's takes me back to the Old Country. It has that close, intimate setting where the patrons in unison experience the ritual of gastronomy. Now, the restaurant is very much out of place since it is situated... More

Went for a post Christmas dinner with family. Food was all very good, drinks were served correctly and promptly and the server was attentive and knowledgeable. Very comfortable setting!

We drove by Tenuta's several times on Friday nights and noticed there was never any place to park, so we decided they must have good food and should stop some time. We went around 5:00 PM and found an easy parking spot. We thought we were going to a corner bar. When we walked in we found an intimate atmosphere... More

We arrived on time for our reservation but had to wait for our table as someone else showed up late for their reservation....not a good excuse as other tables were available. Drinks were excellent and the appetizer was a nice start to the evening once we were finally seated after 30 minute wait at the bar area. We ordered our... More

We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated at 7 pm on a Tuesday. We ordered our starter and our entrees right away. Entrees arrived at 8:20 pm . 2 of us had scallops and 2 had pasta dishes. All were served at room temp. We saw people arrive after us get served before us and leave while we were... More

I brought my parents here for dinner and it was great. My dad is an older Italian guy so I did not know what to expect. He is generally really picky and hard to please. He loved it and so did the rest of the family. The only minus was that the chairs were a little wobbly for the bigger... More
