After reading seeing many advertisements for Tumea and Sons in the paper, we decided to try it out tonight... and were disappointed. The ambiance of the restaurant was very casual, not ideal for a date night. I ordered the chicken marsala,

I have known the cooks and some of the family since I was a kid busing tables at another italian great of the south side Nana Leone's Joe Joe and Mario were previously cooks there as well. The food and enviroment are fantastic you won't see any place like it outside of Chicago or New York. I have lived in several different places across the and this is the real deal. Great food, great conversation, and bocce ball. What the heck else are you looking for? I take all my friends and relatives from out of town there.

Pros: Great enviroment authentic as it gets!!

Cons: Location is not great but it never is for the best food!

Order the Chicken Asiago - it is absolutely divine! It's my favorite meal out of any restaurants I've been to in Des Moines. Everyone raves over the DeBurgo and Shrimp Scampi too. You are missing out if you've never been to Tumea & Sons.

Went there for a friend's birthday celebration. We had a large group and the service was slow. I had to get mine to go because my two year old was going stir-crazy. It was a nice family place though and I felt comfortable letting him down. The bread before the meal was AWESOME, but that could have been because I was so hungry! The red sauce was just ho-hum in my opinion. Tasted a little like Spaghettio sauce. I think we saw Tumea eating there though and she was making eyes at my son and telling me how cute he was, which I liked :)

The service from our waitress was very good but the food is average and small portions for the money.Tip was added to the bill without asking if I wanted to leave one. The waitress would have gotten a larger tip if I were allowed to leave it on my own.

Modest prices, great food, the best service I have had in years, nice wine list, and a wonderful atmosphere make this one of the best stops in Des Moines to eat. The owner spends evenings in the yard behind the restaurant playing Bocce and socializing with customers late into the evening. Stop in once and you will realize that you now have a new stop on the list of places you need to return with friends.
