Tavalino's Italian Restaurant is Great! – This truly is a superb Italian restaurant. The food is impeccably prepared with the freshest ingredients, and the menu offerings are right out of Italy. Among several of the wonderful dishes my wife and I have tried and loved are the Ravioli di Zucca (butternut squash pasta), Osso Bucco (a special - not always on the menu), and a seafood special (succulent whitefish prepared to perfection). We have also sampled several of the appetizers on different occasions and found them all to be delicious and innovative. I am not an especially big fan of deserts, especially chocolate concoctions that I usually find heavy and over-the-top (yes, some would say a serious flaw in my tastes), but I was blown away by a delicate very chocolaty desert my wife ordered and I sampled. I believe it was the Bonet (advertised as "rich chocolate custard with amaretti and caramel sauce"). She was lucky to get any after that first sample; it WAS rich and chocolaty, but had a finesse in balanced texture and flavor that I had not experienced anywhere else in many years!
I should add that their lunch menu has some great treats at quite reasonable prices. I am not a vegetarian, but I cannot resist their Vegetariano sandwich, made with portobello mushrooms, red sweet peppers and eggplant on focaccia smeared with a fabulous pesto.
