  • "I'm not a big foodie, but I really love every dish they serve here. My husband and I are regulars here for our special nights out a few times a year. I absolutely love the Rosemary & Fennel crusted Duck Breast! Just devine! The atmosphere is cozy and elegant, the staff is very attentive and the selection of food is extensive! My husband wants the Hot Chocolate recipe!"

  • "The homemade pasta was delicious! We split one of those dishes to make it an appetizer and it was perfect. Service was attentive."

  • "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."

  • "Went with my wife for our anniversary and had a really fantastic meal. Food was fantastic and the service was very good! Will go back for sure."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "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. "

  • "Service was great and the five course meal for two was perfectly portioned and delicious! "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Best gnocchi and ceasear salad ever! My husband had the sea bass with mushrooms, clams and shrimp. He said it was the best sauce he's ever had! My veal was also very good."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "We went really early on a Monday night for a birthday so the restaurant was very quiet. The staff was great and very attentive and knew the menu/food well. I ate the ravioli and it was to die for! This was my second time and I love it. Great food, worth the price if you get the right dish =)"

  • "My partner and I dined at Cucina Toscana to celebrate our birthdays. She had the salmon special and I had the duck breast.... so, so good! The service was friendly and attentive. Of course, the molten lava chocolate cake was a perfect way to end the meal! We will be back!"

  • "My date and I had a fabulous time in your restaurant. The atmosphere was sophisticated, welcoming, and overall enjoyable. The food was incredible and authentic, we will definitely be coming back. We were seated quickly and quietly and our table was ready for us as we got there for our reservation. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Went here 3 or 4 years ago and was blown away by the food and the experience. This time we went very early and with a smaller grouo. The food just didn't seem as good. My friends pork chip was drowning in figs and my veal seemed a bit overdone. The polenta and mushrooms was amazing but really the only standout New management I hear...not sure if that's it or just the day we showed up. Either way a little disappointed but it's still a great place....might be overpriced now based only on this experience...server was great. "
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "Overall I was impressed with the restaurant. However, this place needs some updates to decor, the carpets looked gross, and I would believe for the amount of money I am spending the ambience could be much better, especially when you are taking your significant other here for an anniversary dinner. I would come again, but it won't be often."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "When we arrived the hostess stand was unoccupied. We had to send member of our party into the kitchen before we found the hostess. Yes, it was and early dinner, mid-week but for crying out loud if you're OPEN you should be staffed. The uniform of the busboy and the waitress were both noticeably soiled. Sad, sad, sad for this price range. Food was delicious, wine was excellent."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Food is average, nothing special. Do nor order a mixed drink, they can't make one. They were unable to make a gin martini which is the world's simplest drink to make... Gin, ice, shake, pour. Wine was good. Great difficulty dividing a check."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Did not expect to find off-the-charts Italian in SLC. Seafood was stunning. Delicate, properly cooked, perfectly fresh. Red sauce experience was as good as it gets. White sauces - ditto. Go! This is great Italian!"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Have been coming to SLC since 1980. This is by far one of the best meals I've had the pleasure to enjoy. We had a party of 7, and every person gave rave reviews. From the amazing ceasar salad prepared tableside, to the Cioppino which I had. Service was excellent and our server was open and honest with us. Didn't have dessert as we were all to full. Portions are quite substantial. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Very solid experience and great food as usual. Would have been 5 stars all around but we were seated by window and it was too cold inside. Our server could also not communicate very clearly with us."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "My husband and I were looking to have a romantic meal at a nice restaurant. Although the food was good, it was not spectacular ( other than the barata which was amazing). Our server was either all over us, clearing plates we weren't done with or walking in circles around the restaurant looking angry and bored. We never felt welcome or comfortable, I would not recommend."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "We started out great. The ciopinno was mediocre. Others said about the same. The gnocchi was very good."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Based on other internet reviews, we thought we'd give Cucina Toscana a try. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal -- the food was absolutely excellent. Unfortunately once the evening picked up with more and more diners, the noise of dishes being stacked, un-stacked, etc. became so loud, it was a nuisance. We were also very disappointed with the Monsanto Chianti -- although recommended by the waitress, it was near sour and certainly not worth the price. That said, our shared seafood-sampler appetizer, veal and seafood entrees and desserts were excellent!"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "My husband and I dined at Cucina Toscana as a late Valentine's Day dinner. The service was excellent, and our waiter was very attentive, friendly and helpful. We shared the Caesar salad and Caprese Salads for appetizers while we waited for our food. The Caesar salad was nothing special, but the Caprese salad with prosciutto was wonderful! My husband ordered a salmon dish that was just okay. I ordered the Ossobucco, which was excellent. For the price, though, the food was nothing too special. For dessert we ordered the $12 crème brulee, which was just awful. I've had microwaveable crème brulee from Costco that was much better, and cheaper! Cucinca Toscana has a romantic atmosphere and gourmet Italian food, but be prepared to pay for it."

  • "This was our second time at this rest. and first under the new mgmt. The service was exceptional. The food was also exceptional. I had the short rib which was perfectly prepared. My wife had the sea bass which was cooked perfectly and the flaOr was as good as any I have tasted anywhere. I would highly recommend this rest."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Everything was excellent from the moment we stepped into the restaurant. We were greeted as we came in and all the staff was very kind. Our server was wonderful. He explained the menu, gave us recommendations and was always on time with refills. He also gave a complimentary refill on an Italian soda that I ordered. The Food was amazing. I'm not sure his position with the company, but Scott came by a couple time to make sure our experience was going well. Great place to go for special occasions."

  • "The sea bass special was outstanding, so was the Caesar salad made fresh at the table! Our server, Elizabeth, took excellent care of us. We brought clients back the next night!"

  • "We have dined at Cucina Toscana several times before the change in ownership. Each time the service, food and ambience was excellent. This time was our first after the change in ownership. The service was bad, no one smiled the food was okay, nothing special and not the same quality. we were placed right next to a large party when the restaurant was empty. The hostess was not friendly. Our waiter was Ben, who did not smile, we had to ask for water, ask if there were any specials. We had to ask to have our order taken. Ask for more water. We couldn't find our waiter and had to ask another waiter to find Ben. This is only the tip of the bad service we received. We spoke to the manager and he blamed everything on Valter."

  • "Unfortunately, I will not be recommending this restaurant to friend, nor will I be going back. The service was horrible (we waited 20 min for a wine list), the food wasn't special, and it felt like the staff was more anxious to leave than to wait on us. Our waitress wasn't knowledgable about the menu and kept misunderstanding our order. Overall, a very poor and disappointing dining experience. It left me shocked that this iconic downtown restaurant is named as a Hall of Famer in SL magazine year after year as it certainly doesn't live up to its reputation."

  • "I have dined at C-T several times in the past, and this was by far my worst experience. The "pasta tour" was ok, but wasn't very warm for freshly prepared pasta. The salad was good, but the entrees also seemed like they had been sitting around a while before being served. All seemed more "generic" and rather mass produced. However, the worst part of the meal was dessert. We ordered 3 items that are almost impossible to ruin, yet they managed to do just that with all 3. The cheesecake had a crust that was thicker than the cheesecake, and was so hard we could barely keep it on the plate when cutting into it. The crème brulee tasted funny (like basil), and the vanilla gelato was icy and very generic as well. Not worth the price!"
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Though the prices are not friendly for a true 5 course Italian meal, this place does take us back to eating in Italy. Plan for at least a two hour experience. Fairly descent wine list, but terrific Italian dishes, from Linguine Nere to some Ravioli Formaggi. Great tableside Caesar salad to start the night. Highly recommended (we have been to SLC twice and have been to Cucina Toscana twice) :-)"

  • "Food was excellent and a nice selection for all palates. The pastas made daily were wonderful. The sauces that went with each plate were fantastic. A good selection of wine for all food parings."
