"Several times a year I visit Des Moines on business and I always make it a point to meet folks at Tumea's for dinner. Being raised in an Italian family in New Jersey I can tell you this place feels like home. The decor, the menu, the wait staff, everything feels like my childhood when I come through the door. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Don't miss the bocce ball court out back in the summer. A good game and a limoncello. 

The menu has all my old school favorites along with the most amazing dish called cotolette. Medallions of beef tenderloin pan fried in breadcrumbs. It melts in your mouth. Just tender and perfectly seasoned. 

Be sure to order the house-made creamy Parmesan salad dressing. Make room for the lemon cookies made weekly - Wednesday I think. 

I can't get enough of this place and the warm family atmosphere. It's always packed. Lots of love and good food here. Don't miss it.

By the way- the prices are incredible. You can't get a better meal for this great price. I can't wait to go back."
