    My wife and I both had outstanding dinners! The lobster special was terrific and my wife's veal dish was outstanding. We both finished dinner with the bananas foster. The best we've had since New Orleans. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    I made a reservation for 5 three weeks in advance. We were given a table for 4 with an extra place setting at the end. Was very cramped and when I asked for another table was told nothing was available. As it turned out another party canceled last minute so we were moved to a round table which was much more appropriate for 5 adults. The waiter was very nice and service was good. Food was average.

    Main course was very good--salad did not have tomatoes as in description--called to waiters attention--he brought 2 slices of paper thin pink tomatoes--I think they should do better than that in an 8.95 salad

    It is rare to find a local restaurant that serves excellent food, and has top of the line service. The entire staff is so friendly, you feel like you are part of a warm, inviting family. Each time we dine at BV Tuscany, the waiters are extremely accomodating, efficient and charming. We really love bringing our friends & family here because we are never disappointed with the food, service or ambiance.

    Very accommodating wait staff and chef. One member of our party can't eat garlic. Not an easy thing to accomplish in an Italian restaurant. Waiters remained pleasant and watchful throughout our very good meal. The courtesy grappa (this one raisin-infused) was a nice end to a delicious meal and relaxing experience. We weren't rushed through our meal. Shrimp napoleon appetizer was wonderful and veal/chicken with olives, artichokes, tomatoes was fresh and homemade. Nothing prepared ahead of time. that's why they can accommodate special requests with minimal problems.

    Much hype for this restaurant, but not on this night. Calamari was slightly chewy- not up to standards in the area. Osso buco was unremarkable over risotto. Shrimp dish was good. Desserts were more the expected. Parking difficult.

    This was our first time dining here and did not know that everything is made to order, so it did take a while for our entrees to be served. But it was well worth the wait. Starting off with a delicious pear salad and then the Osso Bucco that was done perfectly it fell off the bone. I look forward to returning and trying one of their delicious sounding fish entrees.

    We eat here once a year on our annual trip back East. We found this on Open Table and have never been disappointed. This trip we had Carpaccio, Cawsar Salad, Caprese Salad, Pollo Special, Penne Stracsicate, Pollo Alla Toscana with Tartuffo and Zabaglione for dessert. Everything was great. The only less than perfect -- we thought the service was a bit slow at times. Highly recommend for excellent Italian cuisine.

    I took my husband to this restaurant for father's day and we were pleasantly surprised.I have been skeptical about going to the restaurant for quite some time. Every time I looked at any restaurants on my open table this restaurant- top choices. I thought I was going to be disappointed. The food was good but the services was outstanding, friendly, welcoming, just outstanding...can't say enough. Services make or breaks an establishment no matter how good the food is but this one met all my expectation. Its a quaint place where you are made to feel like part of a family. I have already recommended this restaurant to many of my picky friends. A must try, is their flavor grapas. There is off street parking but that is not a problem.

    Once again, Tuscany did not disappoint! 8 of us dined there to celebrate my birthday, and had a lovely evening. The appetizers were yummy especially the lamb meatballs, the entrees were all beautifully cooked and with large portions (I had the salmon) and we shared several desserts. I especially liked the pannecota, which had a subtle coconut flavor, and the tiramisu was light and airy. I highly recommend this place, they always make you feel welcome!

    My husband and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary by treating ourselves to a special meal. With the help of yelp, we found BV Tuscany Italian Ristorante in Teaneck. The reviews were consistently high and the menu on the website looked extensive enough to satisfy our different tastes so we made the reservation through OpenTable. (First time ever using OT and quite pleased.) We parked in the street - not sure if there was a lot. The modest facade is not an indicator of the great service, food, and ambience of the establishment. Waiter seated us, opened and handed us our napkins and was able to make recommendations. My husband loved his perfectly tender rack of lamb and I my zuppe de pesce with lobster. Truly a dining experience.

    The restaurant was way too noisy and even hard to hear the waiter recite the specials. The wine list was not very comprehensive for my guest who only drinks Chardonay (sp?) and didn't care for the house wines. The clams were tough and the bronzino was bland. The service was very slow. I was quite disappointed as I had made these reservations for my out of town guests who are very sophisticated diners. Frankly the only reason I chose this restaurant was for the nearness to my home and the fact that it served liquor which is hard to find in this area. I would not recommend or return.

    We are always looking for new restaurants and I had been here for lunch last year. We came back for dinner and were very pleased with all aspects. Service was outstanding. The menu had a lot of good selections and was not the typical chicken parm Italian restaurant. The wine list was reasonable for the area. The food was well prepared and tasty. We will definitely return.
