    Came for the Salt Lake Dine o Round. We had reservations. After being seated and waiting 20 minutes my husband went to the hostess and asked if we could at least order some wine. Apparently two servers had not shown up. The wait was intolerably long - a couple seated by us got fed up and left and no one seemed concerned about it. One hour after ordering our meal we were told that they were out of one of the entrees we had ordered. I understand that staffing issues can create problems but the hostess should have apologized and informed us up front that there would be delays.

    The food was alright. Not bad, not great. The service was terrible. There were just 2 of us and it took 2.5 hours to have dinner. We'd been seated over an hour before we finally got our salads. A nice, leisurely pace for dinner is great, this was not that. A couple sat at the table next to us and after 30 minutes of waiting and no waiter ever approached them, they left. Also, I wanted lasagna - we had a 6:45PM reservation time, so not late into the evening, and I was told they were already out of lasagna. What Italian restaurant is out of lasagna? The food was certainly not good enough to make up for the service.

    We ordered from the selection of three items. My wife ordered the chicken and I ordered the pork. The chicken was tough. My pork and the sauces for both were excellent. Dessert was fabulous and the dessert wines were most tasty.

    We went to dinner using the Groupon that was offered a few weeks ago. The restaurant had decided to open up a new section, to allow for outdoor dining due to a concert at Pioneer park. We found out later that the kitchen was actually a block away. However, that was never an issue. The 5 course meal was fantastic! The apps were great, as were the entries. The tiramisu, wasn't my favorite, but it was still good. Our server, Elizabeth, was very attentive and knowledgeable. We'll go back!

    After reading the recent mixed reviews from other patrons, we were a little worried, but forged ahead anyway and were glad we did! Every step of the way from arrival, to seating, to dinner and service, was a pleasant and positive experience. We had the Tuscan Tour menu with a Groupon purchase and all the dishes were quality food prepared so deliciously after the Italian tradition of "Quality, not Quantity." The star dishes of the evening was a shrimp and scallop appetizer, gnocchi primi with a spicy tomato-based sauce, and the duck and fig confit secondi. Yummm!!! Our server, Margharita, contributed to a delightful evening for us and the hot chocolate that came with our dessert was a pleasant surprise. We will definitely be back!

    Sure, it's a nice restaurant. Really. But I'm not sure I would pay the price again for the food I got. The place is currently undergoing some renovations, we for some reason, we were seated in a large empty room. The food was delicious, but not the quality that I would pay $35+ for per entree. That being said, the crème brûlée was to die for.

    The service was great and we loved the open feel of the restaurant. We has the Tuscan Tour menu. Parts of it were delicious and parts I wouldn't order again. My favorite menu item was the Tutta Pasta. The gnocchi was smooth and the star of the dish was the spinach and ricotta ravioli. I could have eaten just a plate of those and been in HEAVEN! For the entree I ordered the Vitello in Saltimbocca and found the highlight of the dish was the green beans and not the veal. The flavors were muddled for me. My friend ordered the duck & roasted figs the flavors were great and the combination of the figs and spinach were delicious. We used a Groupon which I appreciate the restaurant offering. I would return for the ravioli in a heartbeat.

    Our night started off with restaraunt calling us to come in 45 minutes earlier than our reservation time... Just to end up waiting for an hour to be seated! When we arrived they acted as though they did not know about our reservation or their call and sat people before us. We watched as two women were so disgusted with the service and the loud atmosphere they finshed their drinks and left. By the time we got seated to celebrate my mother-in-laws' birthday we couldn't hear our own thoughts. We were right across from the kitchen with banging pots and dishes and everyone else in restaraunt yelling to be heard. The servers were running around aimlessly. We tried a different table but ended up leaving as well!

  • Nothing Special
    MainDish
    Dined on 8/4/2014
    We celebrated our anniversary at Cucina Toscana. I had never been here and thought it would be romantic, but there was nothing romantic about it. There was a dining room with comfortable chairs and linens on the tables, but this isn't the room guests were being seated in. In fact, with very few patrons in the restaurant, we were given a large round table - in full view of the kitchen. Not romantic, and not what I'd consider a good table. Our food was very good, but the portions were small and the price was high. When we got our bill, they had added the tip on ($30) which I've not seen happen before for a party of 2. I think for the price, the service and ambiance were nothing special and other local upscale restaurants are better.

    Went on a groupon, we received paper menus as others had nice hardback menus. Waiter was nice but it seemed like we only saw two waiters the whole time even though it was half full. Seemed like a lot more attention was paid to those with the hard back menus. Had to ask a few times for water. It took two hours for dinner and we even took our dessert home because we were already behind on our schedule. We waited quite awhile between courses. The food was not worth the wait. Especially when it made us seem as we were less important customers with our paper menus and all.

    My husband & I have dined here enough number of times for special occasions. We have never been disappointed with the food and service and will continue going back for special occasions. Our last visit (7/29) was a bit of a mixed experience though mostly all good as per usual, our entree's could have been a bit better. I guess they have such a high standard every time we go that a little something being off got extrapolated in our minds. Totally love this place and will go again as well as recommend any day.

    Our party of 5 was looking for a good dining experience and found it at Toscano. We were dressed casually so that the hostess seated us out of the main dining area which was ok with us. Our waiter was very attentive an helpful. We had veal and pork entrees which were outstanding in flavor. Our younger guests had spaghetti al crudo which fit their taste. The best dish of the night however was the homemade ravioli. Desserts were pretty standard but tasty and the complimentary Italian hot chocolate was a nice addition. Overall a great experience.

    As a visitor to Salt Lake City, we were delighted with Cucina Toscana! The Caesar salad, however, is not actually made at tableside and the service was slightly less than perfect, but the food absolutely makes up for it. The homemade pastas are wonderful and such a rare find today. Everything on the menu looked inviting and it was difficult to choose. Wine list is limited but adequate. This is definitely a restaurant to return to the next time we are in SLC.

    The food started ok. Decent antipasto, salad ok, then the ravioli came... which was absolutely delicious, but I only got one. That's right, one single ravioli. I should have just ordered that... They (it) was very good. Then the main course, I had the veal and my wife the pork. Mine was ok, could have made it better myself at home... my wife's meal was so bland, almost no flavor. The flavor that was there wasn't good either... I would compare it to a Salisbury steak tv dinner. Desert was tiramisu, and tasted good. Lastly, they bring you a cup of very rich hot chocolate... but my wife's was served cool/barely warm.
