My dining experience was awesome!! Great food, great atmosphere & great service! I will be back!
The salad dressing in my opinion, is one of their many staples and I can proudly say is one of my absolute favorites. People on here bashing food with no palate. Speaking for myself here. I'm sorry for the couple who had a bad experience because their wait was TOO long...there's a reason for that! Quality and perfection don't come like fast like a franchise restaurant. Have a drink and make conversation or head west! Rant over.
An institution in Des Moines...always worth the trip across town!
I was there with 3 other people. Talk about treating you well. Got us in even when they were packed. We were treated like kings and queens. Dinner delivered promptly - even when there were several large groups of 10+. Fast, courteous and excellent food. I complimented Bobby by stating he and his crew were a 'well-oiled- machine.
One of the best restaurants in Des Moines. We've eaten there many times and never have had a bad meal. I love the chicken spiedini and my husband loves their steaks. Don't forget to order their onion rings! They have a nice selection of wines at reasonable prices. Good food, good service at fairly reasonable prices.
We have drove by this place literally a thousand times (since the 70s). We always said we should eat there sometime. Well we finally did. Wow Just wow Service and food was excellent. We will be back!!!
I worked there back in the 70's, good food then and now. I always get the spedini. Yesterday I ordered the spedini salad, it was awesome!!! Then there's the Rasberry dessert which is to die for. The biggest disappointment is the bread. It's such a nice place to have average bread at best. Everyone I know misses the focacia bread or maybe a good ciabatta. Get rid of the cheap Italian bread!!!
Fantastic Food no matter what you order, everything is delish! Highly recommend it, Tursi's has been a long time favorite for many people. It's no wonder, the atmosphere is amazing, the staff are incredible and really just a top notch place all around. Highly recommend and reminder to make a reservation!
Great service, great food, the chicken spedini was amazing!
We had New Years Eve reservation for 8pm, we're seated immediately, food was served quickly and as usual - delicious. House salad dressing is the bomb. Great atmosphere.
We just got done with our Office Christmas Party. This was also my first time at Latin King. I could not have been more impressed. The staff was top notch. The food was amazing. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Bellisima!!!
The food was very good. I had the chicken speidini, husband had steak. The service was very good, except I thought our salads would come right after the onion rings, but several minutes between. Atmosphere is friendly and just warm and cozy. This place is special.
Outstanding! ! The service, food and atmosphere are second to none. Always a great sign when the owner is out helping on the floor! ! Never have had a bad meal there.
Tonight was our first visit. We were greeted with a friendly smile and immediately felt at ease. Our waitress was very attentive. The food was amazing! Well worth the long drive from northern Iowa. We will definitely be back!!
Oh my goodness....I think I was just in heaven! Hubby and I splurged a bit tonight. Tursi's Latin King. I ordered a Mango Martini...our waiter, who was fabulous, said it won Top prize at one time. I can see why..it was delish! I ordered the Chicken Speidini, their house specialty. Chicken was tender and juicy, I got it with their Amoto sauce...so very good and full of flavor. Vegi's were perfectly crisp tender. My husband got spaghetti with tomato, garlic and basil. Delicious!! Our waiter asked if we wanted dessert...I asked his recommendation...he said the Tiaramisu...oh....my....yum! It was amazing! I wanted to lick the plate it was that good!! Our waiter was spot on with all of his suggestions!
Food was very good. Service was good. Antonio rocked. Two needed improvements. Serve fresh parmigiana cheese with food. Also, olive oil to dip our bread in.
Some of the best Italian food in Des Moines. I LOVE their spicy marinara sauce!! A piece of buttered bread to dip in it... yum!
We came here on Saturday, Nov. 4, between 5-5:30 pm. Super awesome servers and the food was beyond amazing. We'll definitely be back.
