Very comfortable atmosphere for young child – We wanted to try Tucci out for quite some time. We have a young child - 19 months and know it's important to know if a restaurant is "kid friendly" before attempting to dine there. We called ahead and spoke to Brian who assured us he would find the right spot for us to enjoy our meal and not feel out of place. We arrived and he quickly remembered our conversation and said he had the perfect table. We enjoyed the Monday night all night happy hour menu and were endlessly impressed with fantastic food, amazing service and friendly vibes all around. We will return in no time. This was a find and so nice for young families to feel comfortable! Thank you! We will be back soon. :-)
great happy hour – I recommend the happy hour here. It isn't as busy and noisy as other places and the food is top notch! Try the pizza!
Love the owner..! – ENOUGH about the Owner!! Being an LO resident, I frequent Tucci often,. I have sat next to the owner, and have found him very gracious and generous. Recently I had a friend up from Newport Beach Ca., and the three of us shared a delightful evening and great conversation together at the bar.. To our surprise, he picked up the tab, which included two orders of the best scallops in town!
Maybe it was because I wasn't wearing an REI fleece vest and Birkenstocks... Ladies, try and look like ladies!
Great Date Night!!! – My boyfriend took me to Tucci tonight for dinner and it was awesome! We understand they've recovered their original chef, who made phenomenal food for us. We had such an amazing dinner, the crab bruschetta and caprese salad were both superb, our pasta entree was really tasty, and we were offered several tasters of wine before deciding which bottle to enjoy with our meal. Our server was attentive, yet still gave us room to relax and enjoy. Every course was tasty and left us wanting more. The real kicker for me was, we walked in 20 minutes before closing and didn't hear ONE WORD about the kitchen closing down, nor were we rushed to order or treated with any type of irritation for sitting down so close to closing. We weren't rushed through a thing, and we had a beautiful meal, and such a fun date night together. Thanks Tucci, we will definitely be back!!
Good, but expensive. Since they stopped accepting the Passport unlimited dining, even more so – We used to go often when we could use our passport card, but since they are no longer accepting this or other discounts, we can't justify the prices of the food. Wine list is over the top expensive and it was always too warm, so we would have our red wine placed on ice, even in the winter. Food is great, no argument there, but it's not the kind of place where middle-income folks would go on a regular basis. We'd be back in a heartbeat if they offered some dining discount or lowered their prices, but can't really justify it when there are so many great places with more affordable food, that is just as good! Other than than, food, atmosphere are great.
Outstanding dinner!! – Great service, excellent ambiance, incredible food! It was one of the best meals I've ever had..truly! I had the filetto arrosto. It was unbelievable to say the least. My friend had the same and she thought it was just as good as I did! The house salad was just ok but everything else was perfect! Loved it!
Beautiful interior decor. Felt like we were in a great place – Lunch with friends, great place.
Our service was attentive and polite.
Our food was very attractive and tasty.
Dessert was edible; coffee was the best part.
Incredible Service, Great wine! – I dined at Tucci last night and had one of the most enjoyable meals of my life. I was so impressed that I came home to check out reviews on City Search and was absolutely shocked to see the two previous write-ups. I had a totally different experience. As a former restaurant industry worker, I have indredibly high standards. I can appreciate good service and great food, and this is exactly what I found at Tucci. My server was friendly, conversational, and had an obvious appreciation and expertice for the rarer Italian wines Tucci offers. I was seated immediately, had a bottle of great wine before I could even open my dinner menu, and enjoyed a filet mignon that was delivered promptly and cooked perfectly. My wife had the halibut that was on their menu, not a special, and had a very different experience than the person who wrote before, it was not the least bit dry. We finished with a chocolate polenta cake with a scoop of the house-made gelatto and it was absolutely incredible. I would go back in a heartbeat.
Maybe my experience was different because, to me, an owner doesn't determine whether or not my own dining experience is enjoyable. Maybe he isn't interested in conversation when he is enjoying his food, I know we were stuck silent for a moment. Or maybe he has become jaded by the very "entitled" clientelle of any business in the Lake Oswego area. As a business owner there, I know the feeling. Regardless, service is great, food even better, and I will take a grumpy owner any day if that is what I get out of it!
ok food, rude owner – Unfortunately for Tucci, the owner is the reason why many of us from LO do not frequent his restaurant. He is seriously the most arogant person any of us have ever meant. He sits at the bar, eats his dinner and drinks his wine, and never looks or speaks to anyone.
There are many places in LO where the owners and staff are far friendlier. The food at Tucci is ok, but not spectacular enough to give that man any of our $$$. We tried again last evening....thought we'd give it another chance, but unfortunately he was rude again. We suggest that if the business makes him that unhappy, his other partners should suggest he stay at home!
Great atmosphere, average food – We really enjoyed the music and atmosphere at Tucci's but frankly, the food did not live up to expectations. Can't comment on all dishes but I ordered the special, which was halibut and it was overcooked, dry and a very small portion. On the other end of the large plate was an equally small portion of spinach. I don't mind small portions but the food better be exceptional and this was not. Our appetizer of bruschetta w/ crab was also a disappointment. It was prepared on one piece of bread which after being divied up, wasn't much for any one person and very salty. On the other hand, the latin guitar duo was wonderful and the choice of italian wines is exceptional. I would recommend going for drinks and listening to the music.
