Great food, but they are not afraid to charge for EVERYTHING! $2.50 per soda! $4.50 for sharing a plate! Personally, no matter how good the food might be, I never really feel welcome in a restaurant that is trying to milk every last dime out of its customers. Tesoro's is definitely one of those grasping, greedy places. Not sure I... More

I love the atmosphere at Tesoro however, not all dishes are equally good. It is a fairly expensive restaurant and last week my husband and I had the chicken marsala. It tasted like the gravy was canned. Another thing to note: You must pay for soda refills. I have never heard of that in a restaurant where you pay over... More

Had lunch at Tesoros and found it to be pretty good, but nothing special. Decent salad and bread....the ravioli and meatball was pretty good. Decent service and good prices. Would probably come back, but wouldn't be my first choice.

We dined here with friends last Sunday. All of us have eaten here several times. Large number of menu choices. Very consistent good food. Nice atmosphere. Attentive and friendly service from an experienced wait staff. The $22.95 five course special offers a variety of choices, but is more that most appetites can handle, which is why there are doggie bags!

Nice atmosphere. On the plus side: the manager opened the door twenty minutes before opening and was very welcoming. The chef accommodated a special cooking request. The house chianti could have been a bit drier, but was better than many I've had in neighborhood restaurants. The garlicky bread was excellent. The appetizer, escarole and beans, was very good. On the... More

I meet a friend here regularly for dinner so have had many items on the menu. I stick with the veal or seafood dishes. Everything is consistently good. The dining area is comfortable and nice for a quiet evening when you just want to talk. They make an excellent Negroni!

We attended a family event at Tesoro’s Italian Restaurant in Guilderland. We had a very nice Italian buffet. Entrees were Chicken Marsala, Veal Parmesan and Eggplant Parmesan. The pasta was ziti with marinara sauce. A green salad was also served. Everything was very good and I heard several people compliment the red sauce. That is high praise at an Italian... More

Friends had been raving about this place, so we gave it a try. Half-a-dozen tables were taken on a cold January weeknight. Our server Bob, seemed eager to please, but I won't say our service was anything out of the ordinary. He kept the orders for drinks and entrees straight at a table for six. We each had a glass...

The linguini with white clam sauce was excellent. The spaghetti bolognese was delicious. Our server was authentically Italian and a very nice man. There was no problem parking at this restaurant.

This local Italian restaurant has been a favorite for years. The ambiance is good, although maybe a little too dimly lit. The hosts and servers are always welcoming and accommodating. I have always enjoyed the chicken or eggplant Parmesan with a side of penne, and the (pesce al forno) baked fish is fresh, light and delicious. They have a great... More
