We ate here on Easter Monday evening, and first of all were pleased that it was open that night (some restaurants were not). We were greeted by our friendly waitress, and told all the day's specials.. rather an overwhelming list, which might have been a little easier to 'digest' had it been written down. Our food, once we ordered (just from the menu) came fairly quickly. We were given bread first, strangely without butter; but, once we asked for some, it was quickly brought. Our meals were very good.. but I wouldn't say extraordinary. My Lasagne was delicious, if not actually 'towering' (as described in the menu); one of our party had the Sicilian Meatballs on Spaghetti which, in my opinion, consisted of some of very rubbery minced beef and not nearly enough spice; the other person had the Seafood Pasta, which oddly (though true to the menu) only contained shrimp, but otherwise looked good. The litre carafe of Valpolicella is probably the best buy for fans of red wine, because the wine in general is expensive; indeed, so is the food.. really, for what it was. So, all in all.. good food, a nice atmosphere.. but NOT amazing.

We were very disappointment with our work birthday dinner we reserved a week in advance. Excellent food but not service!!
Arrived to be seated in the bar area beside the door.
We asked to be moved but were told the other tables were reserved. When we left no one had sat at the table.
We felt very rushed out. One of our ladies was still eating their meal when the table was cleared of everything including glasses.

We went without reservations last night and managed to get in
Food was perfect as it has been every time we've gone to Tesoro's
Not sure why the recent bad reviews, sometimes it's super busy and a little slower but the food is always perfect, and we have tried most of the menu of the years.
Still our fav.

We were pretty shocked at how bad the service was at this restaurant that was reviewed well and looked nice. The server didn't bother to come around for a while and after taking our order didn't come back for half an hour. The place was very quiet and we could see tables sat after us getting their appies and mains in the time we got our first dish. No explanation or apology from the server, who seemed more interested in chatting with people she seemed to know. Took my gf's empty wine glass without offering another. Food was good but the experience was ruined by the terrible service.
