Welcome to Tutoni's, where each dish tells a story and every visit is an experience.

Our menu of creative dishes and new spins on traditional Italian standards – rooted in our region’s abundant agricultural scene – offer customers a dining experience they can’t find anywhere else. We strive to pair top-notch service in a sophisticated-casual setting for a unique York, Pa. Italian restaurant experience.

We embody the farm-to-table movement and take pride in working with local farms and farmers. Our seasonal menus emphasize the best local produce and meats grown and raised in Central Pennsylvania.

A menu like no other

Start off with our popular antipasto options, which include a charcuterie board that features a daily selection of cured meats and a cheese board with some of the finest cheese found in York and Lancaster counties. Warm up with a plate of calamari or a bowl of our always-changing soup of the day. Or, enjoy a refreshing salad made with local greens from Brogue Hydroponics and other seasonal additions.

Our house-made pasta dishes are made from scratch daily – from traditional favorites such as our house ravioli and lasagna to true Italian gems like gnocchi and cavatelli – and are complemented with local flavors of the season, creating a meal that takes guests on a culinary journey that starts in “the old country” and ends right here in our downtown York, Pa., restaurant.

Using the best local ingredients available, our entrée selection changes with the seasons. Prepare your palate for bursts of fresh flavors in the spring and summer and comforting, cozy creations to get you through the cooler months.

Wash it down

When was the last time you had a scratch cocktail, complete with homemade bitters? Ever want to know what a $200 bottle of wine tastes like?

At Tutoni’s, we take your drink just as seriously as we take your meal, so we’re revolutionizing how to imbibe, from your after-work Old Fashioned to a post-dinner Chianti.

Visit us for our Prohibition-style cocktails with a local twist, each concocted by our very own Bryan Busch.

Oh, and about that $200 bottle of wine … We recently installed a self-serve wine system, where you pay for what you pour (1, 3 or 5 ounces) and can try all of the different varietals and vintages that you’ve always desired without having to buy the whole bottle.

Our culinary team

It takes a talented team to help Tutoni’s succeed as a farm-to-table restaurant in York, Pa., with each member bringing a different skillset to the kitchen.

Matt Brakoniecki

Chef Matt's background includes working in the Philadelphia area for the past 15+ years under the guidance of a few great chefs and ultimately working his way up to being a head chef. His previous experience was largely focused on Italian and Mediterranean cuisines and inspired him immensely to learn all he could about the cooking and culture that surrounded him.

"I am always looking for ways to perfect my craft," he says.

More recently, Matt attended a seminar by Massimo Bottura, who is the chef/owner of the #1 restaurant in the world in Modena, Italy.

"My background has influenced me greatly to be the best chef that I can be and to work with people that share my passion. I moved to York to showcase my style of Italian cooking while bringing with me a little of that big city attitude," he says.

Taylor Davis

Born in Southern California but raised in Shrewsbury, Pa., Taylor Davis spent time with Loxley's in Lancaster County and the former Maewyn’s in York before helping open Tutoni’s.

He takes pride in Tutoni’s farm-to-table concept and wants people to feel the connection from the food he helps prepare.

“My favorite thing about working here is helping build a relationship between our customers and the local farms and farmers,” he says.

Davis says the house-made pasta at Tutoni’s has always been the focus of his attention. Creating food is one of his big passions, and he loves that simple food can bring so much joy.

“I believe that food is one of the only things that can take you back to some of the most amazing feelings and emotions that you’ve had,” he says.

Mandy Schriver

Mandy moved to the York area in 2015 from Tampa, FL- where she found her passion for craft cocktails. She has 15 years of experience in the hospitality business in an assortment of roles, but finds the culinary aspect of creating cocktails most exciting.

“I love the challenge in crafting a cocktail that will change a person’s perception of a certain spirit or ingredient and in turn, making them a fan of something they may not have ever tried before.”  Mandy says about how she creates new menus and the inspiration behind them.

She is so pleased to have found a home at Tutoni’s where farm to table, locally sourced, and made in house not only applies to the food menu but carries over to the bar program.

Mandy is excited to bring her knowledge and experience to downtown York and help shape and create memorable moments for the city.
