This is always a favorite with my family. Food is delicious and service never lets us down. I highly recommend Tufano's if you have out of town guests.

This place has "old Italian neighborhood" charm. It is an old restaurant in an old Italian neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed, but this place hasn't a great deal. It has gotten bigger over the years, but the food remains the same. It has no real...More
