Diner Reviews
  • "So glad that Open Table has the gift certificate you may receive if you make reservations thru them. We looked to use it at a restaurant we hadn't tried before. WOW! Shared the eggplant rolitini (appetizer), my husband had their regular house soup. Main meal: I had rack of lamb and my husband had a veal dish. Mine came with asparagus. Many "fine" restaurants use the thick asparagus (which is awful). Tuscany used the fine, thin ones. Perfect. My rack of lamb was excellent, as was his veal dish. Will we go back? Yes--even without a coupon. Can't forget the service. Everyone was attentive. They made you feel special."

  • "The food is very good and although a bit pricy it is reasonable for the quality. You better not be too hungry since the service is very slow."

  • "I can't praise BV Tuscany enough. The food is always fresh and creative. The staff is so friendly. You always feel welcome! We eat here at least twice a month. My entire family loves this restaurant - from my 94 year old father to my vegetarian daughter. There is a perfect dish for every taste!"

  • "My fiancee has a severe seafood allergy. We always note it in our OpenTable seating request. Rarely has both the host and the waiter acknowledged it so clearly, as the staff at BV did. Our waiter assured us while noting the specials and with the delivery of each course which items he could recommend because of her allergy and the food we should not order. We are thankful for their approach. Not to be left unsaid -- the food was delicious. This is really a neighborhood gem and even worth going out of our way to dine. We'll certainly be back soon"

  • "BV Tuscany has got to be my favorite restaurant in the area. The food is so amazing and the service is exceptional. I have dined here with my family several times and we have thoroughly enjoyed our meal every time. We decided to have a casual dinner last Saturday and as usual, the food was absolutely amazing. I had the lobster diablo special with arugula beet salad. Another fabulous meall. Looking forward to dining there again next month!"

  • "As you enter the restaurant you are greeted by the owner; the waiters are friendly and the staff is very attentive. We usually order the specials. The last time we were there, one of us had the shrimp risotto special and the other a veal special, which were outstanding. The place is small and if there are large parties it is very hard to have a conversation but I have recommended this restaurant to quite a few people and they have all loved it"

  • "The impeccable service begins as soon as you walk through the door. The flavors in the gravies and sauces are amazing. Even our 7 year old the pesto sauce on her ravioli was the best ever ("even better than mama's"). We had such an enjoyable experience on our first visit that we came back with family for a second. We will definitely be back again. Don't pass this restaurant by, you will not be disappointed."

  • "My favorite restaurant in Teaneck. Always delicious…the best bronzino anywhere! Prepared by Ben the owner, the fish is outstanding. The ambiance is intimate…the lighting perfect. A truly cozy dining experience. Don't forget to try the ricotta cheese cake for dessert…absolutely the best. I can't say enough about this wonderful restaurant!!"

  • "We always enjoy dining at this restaurant and have never experienced a bad meal. Everything is done with love of preparation and the desire for the diner to enjoy every minute of the experience. The portions are good and the staff is knowledgeable and attentive. I hope it stays in business for a long time, Good job!"

  • "BV Tuscany is a wonderful surprise. The difference I find between city restaurants and suburban restaurants is that the suburban restaurants are not as interesting as far as their food choices and don't have to try as hard to compete. At this restaurant the menu is full of interesting, savory choices and the food is always fresh and very tasty. The waiters know the menu and understand the way the items are prepared. The wine choices are good as well."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Good food & wine pairing. Very reasonable prices. Good wait staff. Very well done. I've come back a few times- still best local but wod come if I move further away."

  • "It's really hard to find a good Italian restaurant. At last we found one. And I guess Tuscan food is not "typical" Italian as we know it, but it was outstanding. I especially loved the lamb meatball appetizer; it was very different and delicious. Also, the service was wonderful. We weren't rushed yet our waiter was very attentive. Our friends said that it's been a long time since they had such a good meal out at a restaurant."

  • "This neighborhood gem is one that you'll want to keep to yourself so you'll never have trouble reserving a table. You'd never know it from the inconspicuous building facade and entrance way, but once you walk through the front door the magic starts. No longer do you feel like your in Teaneck, NJ but in the cozy quaint Tuscan countryside. With unique diverse dining choices you don't find in most local Italian restaurants, it's best to let the well informed staff guide you as try something different for a change. You will not be disappointed. Wine lovers will be impressed with extensive wine list and the servers knowledge of each selection. I cannot say enough. Just wonderful."

Michelle had such a wonderful experience that she wanted a picture with the waiter and staff. They agreed. How nice of them. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends. We already did. We also will be back for dinner again soon."

  • "I have eaten at BV Tuscany in Teaneck many, many times since the restaurant opened several years ago. When family or guests from out of town visit, my wife and I always treat them to an evening there. Benny and his wife run a superb kitchen. I believe that I have ordered every item on the regular menu. I recommend the gamberi Toscana, the ossa buco, and the wild boar, but everything is quite tasty, the sauces seasoned perfectly. The soups are imaginative and very tasty always, and I'm partial to their risotti variations. But my wife and I have recently been choosing from among the daily specials. Among desserts, let me recommend the vanilla ice cream with strawberries in reduced balsamic vinegar -- I know! -- but it is a revelation!"

  • "Was currently not the best Italian I have had. The veal was extremely tough and the flavor was off. Service was impeccable. I would go back but would order differently!"

  • "The staff at Tuscany is always pleasant and professional. They make you feel at home. If what you want is not on the menu, they will try to make it for you. They aim to please and will always make you feel like one of the family. They also remember their regular customers well and know what they will order. I love this place. It's one of the best spots in Teaneck to eat."

  • "BV Tuscany is one of our favorite restaurants... consistently delicious. The bronzino is the best anywhere! This restaurant has a charming atmosphere and great kharma….and the service is excellent. We have been here numerous times…celebrating special occasions as well as dining at other times. The ricotta cheese cake for dessert is spectacular! You will not be sorry if you dine at Tuscany."

  • "The food was phenomenal, (I was almost tempted to ask for some breadsticks to go) haha. Our server was a joy, personable and humorous. The server was very knowledgeable and listed the day's specials as if it were nothing. I'll certainly be coming back for seconds, thirds and so on. Highly recommended."
