    Better than Great!

    We decided on Il Tesoro for a date night and were beyond impressed. The place was not packed, which made us a little weary, then the food came and we were blown away. The prices were totally reasonable and the food and service were spectacular. They have half orders of pasta so you can try several. We're definitely going back - it's a must try.

    A wonderful addition to the UES!

    We enjoyed our first delicious meal at Il Tesoro in Martha's Vineyard, where their restaurant can be found in The Charlotte Inn. We were so pleased to learn that they were coming to our neighborhood. Having grown up with an Italian mother who is an amazing cook (she still jars her own tomatoes), I am rather discerning when it comes to Italian food. We have visited Il Tesoro 3-4 times since their arrival and have been impressed with the consistent excellent quality of the food. I am also gluten intolerant, and they always graciously address my dietary needs. The service is kind, understated and attentive. I recommend Il Tesoro highly!!

    My kind of place

    Great beyond expectations. We don't usually look at prices when we go out, but when we got the bill we were happily surprised as it was such a great value for the several courses we had including drinks - veal chop and the venison steak, our appetizers of the best scallops grilled and perfectly cooked. The creamy dessert of white chocolate was fabulous. Cocktails were excellent, blood orange martini.

    Too expensive for this neighborhood

    This was my first visit. I went with someone who used to frequent the prior restaurant - Primavera. The only fish on the menu was on the Specials list and was $50-$55. That's a lot even for a restaurant in this neighborhood. The food and service were good, but my friend said the only thing they changed was the wallpaper. To me the place looked old fashioned, but did have nice wood paneling. They should have replaced the chairs! Very uncomfortable, like old Victorian chairs. I had the Sea Bass special which was good and the creme brulee.

    What a disappointment!

    We were so looking forward to eating here as we really miss Primavera. The whole meal was pretty disappointing. we were served cold, hard bread and it was downhill from there. My appetizer was unappetizing. The waiter asked if there was anything wrong, but when I told him it was not good, nothing was done- no replacement, no refund, no further inquiries. There are so many good places on the UES, we will not be returning. Sure do miss Primavera. :-(

    Bad First Impression

    We were very excited to try this new addition to the neighborhood but were sadly disappointed. The food was average. There is nothing to distinguish its food from 10 other Italian restaurants in the neighborhood. Maybe we were in the wrong place for a young couple but I also found the service to be quite rude. We showed up for an early dinner and the restaurant was empty except for another couple sitting at a spacious table for 4. Unfortunately the hostess proceeded to sit us at a very small table for 2 right near the entrance. I politely requested a different table and I was told by the manager that was the only table available to us. I repeat the restaurant was completely empty and it was early. Really?! Not sure why we didn't leave then. By the time the check came the restaurant was still less than half full. For such high prices this restaurant is simply not worth the money we spent.
