This is our favourite family restaurant. Everything about it is genuinely Italian, served with care and good humour.
great food and great staff! We will definitely return again!!
I booked Tacco and Tosca through Quandoo, for the first time. What led me to this is was I called the restaurant to make a reservation and no one answered the phone. There was no option to leave a message as the machine was full. I jumped online to their website and it directed to make a reservation. It was very easy and straight forward. I received an email confirmation within 15 minutes. Our reservation was in the booking diary, however there was not table for us. There were a lot of reserved tables, it was 6pm and tbls were reserved for 7.30pm. I advised them we'll be out by then. We loved our meal, the pasta was delicious, the Bruschetta flavorsome and we had to fit in dessert - profiteroles - they were delicious, lucky we shared. We look forward to going back again soon.
This is our local Italian restaurant and over time we have worked out how to optimise our visits. Booking was easy on line, and the welcome is great as you enter past the kitchens - everyone says hello or "Buena Serra". At the back there are simple tables and chairs, fairly comfortable, but I think rather closely packed. There is a sense that families and locals use it - very Italian. The wine list was weighted to Italian - even a section of wines from Puglia (this region seems a theme in the menu too). There was a range of prices and wine available by the glass. The menu is good, with a range of staple Italian offerings. The print is far too small! There was a short list of specials. I had some trouble finding a couple of smaller dishes - and the pizza I eventually ordered was too big for me (66 yo). All the food was tasty and all four of us enjoyed it. From past experience the entrees are large as well. So sharing is one strategy we have adopted here. We do not usually have desserts, so can't comment - the coffee was very good. The one stand-out problem was the service - all very friendly but we had to seek them out a few times in the evening. And the restaurant was not full. Cost was reasonable for this area. With a bottle of $55 wine and four people, and sharing an entree - it worked out at about $50 per head. Yes, we will continue to use it, and support them....but will continue to work out strategies in using the menu.
Dined with party of seven people. Tacco and Tosca was busy but service was still good. Menu is quite large and contains (regional?) Italian dishes I have not encountered before in Melbourne/Lygon Street Italian bistros. Choice was good, and dishes our party had were excellent. Service was efficient and timely. (We are fortunate to have a quality Italian restaurant in our neighborhood: previously we always went to Lygon Street for good Italian food - we are fortunate to have T & T at home!). Not cheap but not too expensive for the quality!)
Not as good as the experience I've had on previous occasions. The service was very slow even though they weren't that busy. We we there half a hour before anyone came near us to take our drinks order only after we kept asking. Apparently only the owner takes the orders! Overall the food was good we had the Zuppa de pesce, snapper (fish of the day) and lobster gnocchi but disappointed with the spinach and ricotta gnocchi which consisted of 4 large stodgy gnocchi, not what we expected. One of our guests told the waiter she couldn't eat it and sent more that half of it back but no one came to ask what the problem was! They also couldn't mix a drink of soda, lime & bitters. They tried 4 times but couldn't get it right!
We had a great time last evening at Tacco and Tosca. The service is always excellent. The waiters are always attentive and courteous. The food is always of a high standard. A beautiful evening was shared by all. A great Pizza and Pasta restaurant with a few meals for those not into Carbs.
We have regularly dined at Tacco and Tosca and the hospitality there is always genuinely welcoming and the food consistently good. Have not been able to work through the whole menu yest but will definitely be back to try new dishes.
