Outstanding Italian Trattoria that is off the beaten path. Chef Daniel and his wife have been at the helm of this restaurant since 2015 and have done nothing but take it to the next level! I was pleasantly surprised to hear that they source local and regional produce and meats, and that all the seafood offered on the menu is caught through sustainable methods. The night we were there we were delighted to see that the patio was open, we enjoyed hand made pasta, great wine and a terrific Italian chocolate dessert!

I’m willing to pay money for really good food, but this was way overpriced for mediocre food. The Balsamic Pork appetizer was ALL fat and wasn’t even cooked crisp. Terrible. They were out of the Duck Confit, which is why I went in the first place. What??
The rest was of the meal was uneventful. By far our worst food experience on vacation.

Very disappointing. We heard great things especially about the beef cheeks. The beef cheeks were extremely bland. The veal was overlooked but tastes ok, it’s veal. The only good meal was the lasagna.

Take your dollars else where. Over priced and over rated for the quality.

The only good part was the service and wine.

The food was simply excellent - appetizer was calamari fried just right - not chewy, but soft and not over breaded, the salmon risotto was the best I've ever had and the porcini mushroom ravioli had a touch of truffles that was superb. Service was also very good. Only criticism is that the lighting is too high... softer would be perfect. Well worth a dinner out.

This restaurant changed hands about 3 years ago. The current chef appears to be struggling. Food was tasteless overall, pasta was gummy (not al dente). There was a long gap between the appetizer course and the entree course even though there were only two other tables. Will not be returning.

Nice place for Valentine’s Day dinner. They had a guitarist playing and sometimes singing appropriate songs for the occasion. Very pleasant and not too loud for conversation. Wish they had some vegetarian entrees on the Valentine Day menu but there are a few on the regular one. My porcini ravioli, unfortunately, was quite bland and I could hardly taste any mushrooms, but my date’s scallops were perfectly prepared and the other dishes were excellent.

We were pleased with the chopped salad and simple salad to start and the bread was excellent as usual. I tried the special duck for Valentines Day. It was okay, but sort of bland. My husband had a pasta with cream sauce and duck which was better. Service was okay but a bit stretched to cover the crowd. I’ve had much better meals at Torinos. I will keep going back, but maybe not on special occasions.

I have heard about Torino's @ Home for years and we finally made it there. I hate to say it but the food was really marginal, especially in comparison to the price. Our service by Jake was exemplary. That was the only bonus. I started my meal with the goat cheese salad, including cranberries and walnuts. This salad was exceptional. But it went downhill from there with our main courses. I had the lasagna. Stouffer's is better. The sauce was runny and I had difficulty finding the meat. My husband concurred on that. Our son had a pasta of some sort but said it had no flavor. Our friends also were wholly unimpressed. I really wanted to like this restaurant as a nice, upscale Italian restaurant. Sadly, it just wasn't.

Tried Torino’s first time for a quiet conversation business lunch. It was perfect with great food, nice tea menus, and quiet enough for conversation. It is off the beaten path for a restaurant like this but well worth the search!

Love Torino's! Went for my birthday and there was a group of 4 of us and we loved our food! Someone had quail, the beef cheek dish, I had scallops and a wonderful butternut squash curry soup. Lots of options and our waiter recommended a perfect red wine (Dolcetto) when I asked for assistance. Enjoyed our evening and would recommend this place for an amazing evening!
