Our Experience at Tutto

We had dinner at Tutto in July of 2023. It was our first time at the restaurant and we are impressed. We were greeted by the very attentive maître d’ and escorted to our table. It’s a classy place, the seats are comfortable, and first impressions are all positive. Our evening there was a memorable experience!

The friendly and very professional waiter took our drink orders. Over the course of the evening we had Happy Hour cocktails, a glass of champagne and a couple of glasses of red wine. The sommelier recommended the wine based on our food order and her suggestions were excellent.

We arrived at the restaurant before 6:00 pm, so in time for the Happy Hour appetizers. We chose the Tutto Meatballs with garlic toasted focaccia (for $15) and Wagyu Beef Carpaccio (for $18). Both were delicious!

For dinner one of us ordered the Lobster Tagliatelle which was a pasta with Atlantic lobster, cream sauce and tomatoes. It was a real treat! Wanting to try a selection of things, the other person had Tutto’s Mixed Grill which included seabass, veal, a couple of tiger prawns, vegetables and arugula salad. It was also a good choice and all very delicious. The veal was exceptionally tender and not deep fried. The zucchini and asparagus were crisp and cooked to perfection. Everything was nicely presented. You could tell this was a higher-end Italian establishment with an accomplished chef.


Video of Our Tutto Experience

For an idea of what the restaurant looks like, check out the following video clip. It shows a few scenes from our dinner at Tutto in the summer of 2023. In the video you’ll see the outside entrance to the restaurant, a bit of the restaurant’s interior decor, and our Lobster Tagliatelle and Tutto’s Mixed Grill entrées. At the end you’ll also catch a glimpse of some amazing Tiramisù!



Our Desserts at Tutto

For dessert we had the Tiramisù and it was divine! We also had the Torta Caprese which is a flourless almond chocolate cake with vanilla gelato. To finish things off, the waiter recommended a digestif. Based on his advice, we had a Nononi which is a bitter liqueur. It’s made with a grape-based Italian brandy infused with herbs and botanicals. Wow! Was that ever a nice way to finish off our Italian dinner! Next time we might finish with the same, plus an espresso!

We loved our dining experience at Tutto and look forward to going back again. The restaurant is a place you’ll want to go to on a date, for a special occasion or to take guests who like authentic Italian cuisine. If you like Italian food, we highly recommend this place!
