Although a rather pricey restaurant, it had a great atmosphere and a professional staff. The food was excellent with a very nice presentation. If you want a quaint, old traditional Italian feel, come to this place.

We've found that the specials are higher quality than the regular menu dishes. The specials are (overly) pricey, so the groupon made it worthwhile.

Excellent food, attentive and personable waiter and lovely interior. We both ordered the short ribs and asked for one dish to be customized for gluten and dairy intolerance. Th dishes were delicious! Best espresso I've had. Reasonable prices.

From Our Editors

Executive chef and restaurateur AJ Black got his first job in the restaurant industry at age 6. That's when he began washing dishes at the restaurant his family ran in their small seaside town in Sicily. Black also joined his grandparents as they fished for the eatery's catch of the day, reeling in tuna, anchovies, and other fresh seafood.

These experiences sparked a passion for cooking that eventually led Chef Black to the Italian Culinary Institute. He opened his first restaurant at the tender age of 19 before heading to Le Cordon Bleu to study classical French cooking under Paul Bocuse.

From Beaches to Borders

Fresh, seasonal ingredients inspire daily specials that let loose Chef Black's creativity in the kitchen. For the regular menu, however, he draws on tried-and-true traditions from across Italy, from the sunny beaches of the south to the French-Italian border. A dish of whole, lightly fried sardines with a dusting of chili flakes takes its inspiration from the Sicilian seaside, and a hearty order of duck leg confit with freshly made gnocchi hails from the mountainous North.

Old-World Ambiance

Il Tesoro's faux-stucco walls and striped awnings capture the casual spirit of an Old World bistro. Oil paintings burst with images from bucolic countryside scenes to vases of blooming flowers. The simple wooden chairs surrounding each white linen-draped table exude a homespun charm, as do the solitary brass lamps that adorn the tables.
