Mother’s Day

Report

4.0Dined on May 13, 2018

I went with a group of 6 for Mother's Day. They had the usual issues associated with Mother's Day. Large crowds and the computer system went down while we were there. We were seated right away when we got there. The wait for service, drinks, and food was longer then usual and we had to ask a couple times for enough silverware and plates (only 4 of each on table when we got there.)

All in all a good choice for Mother's Day as long as you remember it is Mother's Day and give them a break.

It was Mothers Day, the service was poor, restaurant could not handle the crowd, we waited 15 mins. before we had to stop a waiter to ask who was our waiter! Their Sunday wine @ half price special was not in effect, even though on line it advertised that their wine bottles was 50% off on Sundays. They did offer (1) desert at no charge for the inconvenience.

Even on one of the busiest restaurant days of the year (Mother's Day), our reservation was honored as soon as we arrived, they greeted our two grand children (ages 6 & 3) and seated us in a comfortable booth just the perfect size for 5 hungry customers. Amber provided professional, friendly, and very helpful service and Lance - the owner - stopped by to see how we were doing. The food was fantastic and plentiful (we left with three take home leftover boxes), everyone said they enjoyed their meal (even the kids) and I felt the value received for the experience was fantastic. If you are looking for a fun, family spot in Columbia, I would recommend Tino's - we had a 10 out of 10 dining experience.

Very nice.
Met best friends for a double date. They accommodated all of us deliciously even the gluten free and the soy free and the vegans.
Whew! We didn’t think it could be done.

Went for date night with my husband. I had an incredible grilled seafood dish that was to die for. It was the special and included swordfish, calamari, scallops, and shrimp with steamed vegetables. No carbs, very simple, very tasty, grilled to perfection. My husband, being in a pasta mood, ordered the tortellini in a veal cream sauce. I don't typically enjoy veal, but the sauce was incredible and the tortellini cooked exactly how I like it. The portions were ENORMOUS so we ended up splitting the seafood dish and taking most of the tortellini home. Complimentary appetizer bread was just OK, but the dipping oil had garlic, hot peppers, and other spices in it that made it addictive. He had a glass of Riesling, I had a very acidic, refreshing Sauv Blanc. We just moved to HoCo and this will likely be our new go-to for date night when we are in the mood for Italian and can find a babysitter! (Not sure if kid-friendly, I'm sure they could accommodate, just felt like too nice of a place to bring a toddler.)

Chicken saltimbocca was not as flavorable as expected
Stromboli was good but not spectacular
Tortellini bolanase was great!

Love this place! We have been here several times and always wonderful. The bread and olive oil for dipping is AMAZING. Don't fill-up on bread, or you will need to take home leftovers. We always have leftovers! YUM!

The service was good. The main problem I had was that I had to get three sets of utensils to get one without food still stuck to it. I'm just hoping our plates were clean.

Six of us had dinner on Sunday night, and it's a good thing we had reservations given how busy it was.

Really appreciated the Gluten Free and plant-based (vegan) options. How rare and wonderful to find s restaurant that addresses our needs to willingly.

Food was good, servings were plentiful, and service was excellent. We were seated on the bar side, and the noise level there was too high for my comfort. There is, I was told, another seating area, which those seeking a quieter seeing will want to ask for.
We definitely will return.

Owner stopped by to check on us--that's very nice! Food was really good--I had the white clam sauce. A friend had a dish with shrimp/scallops that was amazing. Another friend had the salmon that was also good. VERY good bread with yummy oil/spices to dip!

after reading other reviews we thought this should be a nice easy place to have some good Italian food. First it started with bread that looked like white bread with brown crust, no crunch yuk.... ordered small Caesar and the lettuce had brown spots and it was dripping with dressing.
Ordered 2 entrees..... would not even take the leftovers home. Wow what a pure disappointment.... would not even give it a second chance.

My husband and I enjoyed Easter Brunch at Tino's. It was excellent. Reserved a table, arrived 10 minutes early and was shown to our reserved table. Food, service, waiter--all excellent. We would highly recommend Tino's. We have been there before for great authentic Italian food and have always enjoyed. A neighborhood gem!

Tino's is always good! They have the best pizza around and other excellent options too. The spinach salad with blackened salmon is my favorite when I'm not up for pizza. You should go! I did not give 5 stars for service because every once in a while, they are a little off - too busy to give the best service. However, it doesn't keep us away.

Pasta was stuck together. Could not twirl it on a fork had to cut it with a knife. Tomato sauce was watery. Bread was served as though it was cut with a butter knife and not a serrated blade.
Once is enough for me.
