Tazinos is open Downtown

St. Francis-based Tazinos opened its fourth location today in the City Center 735 building at 735 N. Water St., and by 11:30 a.m., the place was hopping, with a line of customers snaking out the door and into the City Center lobby.

I suspect the owners better get used to it. The restaurant, which doesn't have sidewalk frontage, but does offer tables with a view out over the river, serves all you can eat pizza, pasta, breadsticks, salads, desserts and beverage for $7.99 per person ($3.99 for kids).

That's the kind of deal Downtown workers are likely to latch onto.

Tazinos has a range of more than 15 pizzas on offer – and it will customize pizza at your request, too – as well as mac and cheese and a couple other pastas – herb garlic and lemon garlic were available today – as well as a fully stocked salad bar with greens, toppings, dressings and deli-style salads like potato salad, macaroni salad and broccoli salad, too.

There are brownies, "cinna-pillows" and an apple "piezino" on the dessert table.

There were a few hiccups today – the pastas were cold, for example – but on the first day that's to be expected as the staff finds its feet.

I tried a bit of everything – well, not EVERYTHING, but small tastes of a lot of things – and found the results to be reliable. I doubt you'll leave raving about any particular dish, but you certainly won't leave hungry, that's for sure.

Quality over Quantity for me.
