Margarita Monday At Tonno

We celebrated Margarita Monday at Tonno on Main St in Gloucester last week and think you might want to consider the same for tonight. It’s always a pleasure to go to Tonno for the delicious food, excellent service and friendly atmosphere. We had made a reservation but decided to go early and sit at the bar so we could have something from the Bar Bite menu. We were accommodated with an easy smile and enjoyed our time at the bar among old friends and new.

I tried a pineapple margarita (yum). Jim had a Veal Milanese Bar Bite along with his Chicken Parmesan entree. I had my new Tonno favorite Chicken Milanese. Our meals were satisfying and tasty. Our friend Joey recently reminded us that summer is going quickly so we need to take advantage while we can and Margarita Monday is one way we celebrate summer. Thanks Tonno for the assist in celebrating summer!
