The atmosphere in Ti Amo Ristorante Italiano reminds one of an upscale Italian restaurant that might have been frequented by the mob in the 1980′s and 1990′s. The high back semi circle booths provide privacy while still allowing you to take in the surrounding atmosphere, and the dim lighting gives an off an air of romanticism. A fountain is strategically placed the middle of the main dining room and provides a soothing trickle of running water while enjoying a delightful meal. A banquet room is available for large parties and meals can be catered for internal and external events.
Arguably the best in Tulsa, the bruschetta could be enjoyed just as much by itself as with the toasted crackers that accompany it. Complimentary bruschetta is provided before the meal, but I highly recommend ordering the appetizer because once you have a taste, it will leave you wanting more. Other tantalizing appetizers include Ravioli Fritti (deep fried beef filled raviolis served with marinara sauce), Mozzarella Caprese (tomato slices topped w/mozzarella, basil, toasted pine nuts, balsamic vinaigrette) and Fritto Misto (fried crab cakes, calamari and raviolis served with a red pepper rémoulade and marinara).
The menu boasts a wide variety of classic Italian specialties and a vast wine selection to complement your chosen meal. As with all quality Italian food it is pricey but well worth the money spent. The eggplant parmigiana is baked, smothered in Italian cheeses and served with angel hair pasta topped with a robust marinara sauce. For those who want it all, try the Pasta Mista which includes lasagna, cannelloni, fettuccine Alfredo and a meatball.
If you’re still up for dessert after feasting on one of their delectable meals, the chocolate molten lava cake is delightfully sinful and of course one can never go wrong with the traditional tiramisu on the menu. For a true experience in fine Italian dining, skip the chain restaurants and enjoy a night at Ti Amo!
