We went for a quick family dinner. Always delicious! Service could have been a tad better. My water glass stayed empty way too long. Avocado salad pizza is a MUST! Super delicious. Half way through dinner though the lights were dimmed. This has happened before when Iâve been there, but didnât realize it must be done on purpose! It was very difficult to read the dessert menu, but thankfully I knew what I was having!Lots of yummy gelato and sorbet to choose from along with Italian favorites. Street parking, have quarters ready if before 7pm on a weekday.

I love their pizza itâs the best in Fleetwood. However they only take cash for the pizzaâs. There are times when I want some and donât have cash on me so I have to walk to the ATM. However, when Iâm in a rush I just go to Luigiâs itâs on the way to the Bronx river and they take my debit card for pizza.

Tombolinos sits at the busy corner of Kimball and Yonkers Avenues. Parking seems somewhat limited -- a couple of unmarked spots just in front of the restaurant and metered street parking along Yonkers Ave. Inside, one is welcomed by a newly redecorated dining area with soft lighting, linen-clad tables, a wooden showcase and an alarmingly large TV that is sometimes distracting. We were the first dinner reservation for the evening and had the attention of the hostess, the new waitress and the restaurant manager for most of the evening. Water and bread were provided right away, and we were early enough to enjoy the mid-week happy hour prices which included $5 glasses of wine and reduced prices on appetizers. We selected the Burrata ($10) and two glasses of Cabernet to start. I typically love Burrata-based appetizers, as itâs hard to improve upon the gooey, creamy, rich pulled curd cheese. The cheese was served room temp and covered in a sweet balsamic reduction with cracked pepper, but the sliced tomato bed it sat on was hard and icicle cold, clearly just out of the fridge, and perhaps out of season. Sourcing good tomatoes during the winter can be a challenge, but serving them at the same temperature as the cheese requires just a little forethought. Our waitress was a young woman who was new to the restaurant and still learning the menu. She was however, extremely attentive and professional, as were all the staff that served us that evening. We really appreciated their vigilant, yet unobtrusive presence that ensured we didnât lack for anything throughout our dinner. A few small things that were a little disruptive to our experience: the music being piped in overhead was punctuated by loud commercials. The dining area we were in had a giant TV just behind us with sports playing. I would have preferred a more formal setting with fewer distractions.Although we spent some time looking through the menu, two of the specials presented to us caught our attention and we decided to give them a chance. The broiled leg of lamb served with risotto ($27) and an Agnolotti served with a Bolognese sauce ($22). The lamb was near perfect â tender, moist and falling off the bone, and the side of risotto was light, fluffy and mildly creamy. The stuffed pasta was also tasty, finished with a sweet tomato sauce and enhanced by the delicate flavor of truffle oil. Of course, a little Parmesan and cracked pepper on top is nearly irresistible on any dish. There were a few minor mistakes with the menu but these were totally forgivable as the waitress was in training and the kitchen resolved these issues quickly â almost not worth mentioning due to the excellent service.For dessert we were tempted by the tiramisu. This rendition was forward on the coffee flavor, but extremely watery. More so than any other version Iâve had. Tasty none-the-less, but I would have preferred an execution that was either a little more syrupy or a little drier. It was very nicely plated with a beautiful herringbone-patterned cream/chocolate/raspberry coulis on the side. We enjoyed our dining experience at Tombolinos and would definitely come back again.

For starters the place feels a bit claustophobic perhaps due to the only windows being painted over with holidays cheers. Bread basket would have been a lovely start had the focaccia not been burnt to charcoal. The mozzarella in carrozza was inedible, deep fried in oil used elsewhere. The osso buco was just all right. The pasta dishes were huge, with quantity definitely detracting from quality. All in all, an American eatery, not quite authentic Italian cuisine.

The food is delicious and the restaurant is very elegant. The bar is great and the atmosphere is very nice and is perfect for a first date or romantic dinner. The menu is diverse and the dessert menu is fabulous!

A lunch for four friends. Worthy of every superlative in the English language. We opted for the special menu, which was replete with multiple choices. Mine was a salad of beets and tomatoes with greens enhanced by an unobtrusive dressing. Followed by a snapper oreganata. Both delicious. Others at our table were similarly ecstatic with their varied choices of salmon,âchicken and veal. Deserts also terrific. Service pleasant, competent and attentive. Worth a trip from anywhere

This is a tiny storefront and everything you expect from the local pizza joint, even if you're just passing through. Crisp thin crust, brightly flavored sauce, and the staff is just awesome. Super friendly. Families came in and they knew the kids by name.

Friends recommended the pizzeria and we indulged. On a Saturday night, with scarce parking and a small wait (35mins.), compared to others with much longer waits, the thin crust was so wonderful, I anxiously await a return trip. We kept it simple with a family-style Italian salad and two small pies (one plain, one sausage). The meal was delectable with a carafe of the house burgundy.

AJ's is a collaboration of America's Favorite Foods served seven days a week serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. AJ makes everything in house using fresh ingredients and an orchestra of recipes. We serve pan sandwiches on our homemade bread; chicken, bro
Just had a great lunch at AJâs. Read about the place on TripAdvisor and it was every bit as delicious, friendly and fun as suggested. AJ spent time chatting about his homemade yummy food, sent over some things he just thought we should taste, and even chatted about bbq sauce with my husband, who has become an amateur rib chef this summer.Burgers were delish. Pulled pork, too. Perfectly cooked rabe. Excellent coleslaw. And spicy pickled veggies just yummy. Not one to take no for a dessert answer, AJ sent small ( thank goodness) bowls of Giffords orange sherbets and vanilla ice cream over causing us to recall the Creamsicles of our youth.Tomorrow: pizza at AJâs!
