Il Tesoro Ristorante
Posted by MJ on 02/13/2015
I ate at Il Tesoro for the 3rd time last night and they automatically added a 20% tip to our bill of five dinner guests. When I asked the manager what the restaurant policy was, he could not give me a straight answer, became defensive and asked us to lower our voices as other customers were eating. We weren't even talking loudly. We did not see any policy on the menu either. We were five females and would have left a 20% tip if they weren't jerks about it. We had a lovely meal but will not return to this restaurant again. Check your bill before you leave a tip as you may be leaving two tips!

We have eaten here 3 times over the past 4 months. The food is consistently excellent. The service is perfect and atmosphere very relaxing.

Beautiful restaurant, delicious food, excellent service. 2 friends and I had a wonderful dinner on a Saturday night. Our waitor was charming and funny. He had us laughing! Service was quick. Food was tasty. I had the skirt steak pizziaola and it was cooked to perfection. Tables have tablecloths and flowers. They even have a piano player on Saturdays at 7:3opm. GO!

Went there for the first time Friday night. I normally don't write reviews but this place was outstanding. Beautiful atmosphere and excellent food. Would definitely recommend and will definitely go back.

Went with couple of friends and had a small rughetta salad (overpriced) and branzino fish (undercooked). A night that was suppose to be special because it was my friends birthday turned out to be a nightmare with a rude and loud italian waiter with attitude.

Although the room is essentially the same quiet dignified room, with some minor modifications of wall hangings and pictures, none of the aura of Primavera has survived. This is a very mediocre restaurant. The food ranges from poor to mediocre; we returned one dish and could have returned another. With one exception, the waiters are clueless, walking around and not seeing a raised hand five feet from them. It is a great pity, since there are very few quiet comfortable restaurants in New York. This review is based on one meal when they first opened and one recently.
