Best Neighborhood Restaurant
This restaurant is a continual delight. The food is always wonderful, the ambiance perfect for conversation, the noise level is moderate (which is hard to find)and I can always rely on the fact that they do pay attention to your request when you make your reservation.
The chef prepares each dish as if it were for a food revue!

Italian gem in San Carlos
Everyone at our table was very happy with what each of us ordered. I had prawns and asparagus with linguine - fresh and delicious. The sea bass was great. Although linguine and clams wasn't on the menu, they made it for one of us. And for the meat lover there was meatballs AND meat sauce with spaghetti, again, offered by our server but not on the menu. Good desserts and bruschetta. We had a booth for the four of us, and it really made for such a nice experience.

Went for dinner with my wife
Went for dinner with my wife and son and we all had great meals. I had a nice veal parmigiana, my wife had passta, and my son had spaghetti and meatballs. Our wait person was very accommodating as we tried several tastes of Italian wines before making a selection.

I chose the restaurant because Nancy Gililard happens to sing on Wednesdays. I didn't expect the food, the wine, and the ambiance to be as wonderful as I found it to be.

Returned to La Tosca for an anniversary dinner. Good selection of items on the menu, service was great and food was great. Very nice selection of wines by the glass. A very enjoyable anniversary dinner.

Excellent of course
La Tosca is one of our favorite local restaurants. The food is always delicious and the staff is always warm and friendly.
The staff gives excellent table service. We were there for Mother's Day dinner and it was a "full house"--which is so good to see at a local restaurant. And even with the full house, our food order nor table service did not lack the usual care.
Do we recommend La Tosca to others? Yes, absolutely!!
Do we dine there often? Yes, of course we do!!

The food was delicious! The service was superb!

We really liked the booths we sat in, and the food was very good. The atmosphere was enjoyable because it wasn't packed, and we could hear ourselves talk! The waiter (from Istanbul) we had was very attentive and he gave us an extra dessert and asked us to critique it. I thought it was a very good idea for restaurant to have patrons critique their food so they would get feed back, and it shows the chef/owner cares what the patrons like.

La Tosca offers the best food
La Tosca offers the best food on the peninsula. The service is above and beyond. The people that work there from greeting to end are the best. They seem to remember you after just a few visits and treat you like a king. My favorite dinner is Veal Saltimboca. I will go back again.

Consistently pleasant dining
We prefer to dine early for a more quiet dining experience. Staff is attentive and pleasant without hovering. Food was served promptly. The server thoughtfully asked if we wanted anchovies on our Caesar salad. Without them, the salad was flavorful and not too heavy on the dressing. The penne with chicken sausage also had a good flavor, and there was a generous portion of sausage relative to the pasta. The veal saltimbocca was tasty, but if you're watching your salt intake, you might want to choose something else. We've dined here a half-dozen times over as many years and have never been disappointed.

one of my favorites
I love LaTosca. I brought a friend with me on a Wed night for dinner who had never been there. She just loved the place, the food and the service. However, not long after we got there, a piano player started playing. Ok...that was nice but it is hard to hold a coversation over a piano in such a small place. Then she started singing. That made it almost impossible for us to hear each other. I think when people are eating at 6:30 at night in a small restaurant, the goal is for them to talk. I think they should get rid of the singing pianist. Just piano is fine but NO SINGING!

Nice service & specials
We enjoyed very nice service and ate their special veal lunch.
Restaurant is well appointed. Wish they were busier on a Monday lunch so they can make more money!

Enjoyed the Meal
First visit, enjoyed the food and service. Plan to return.

Dining at La Tosca was a great dining experience for me, my husband, and two teen-aged sons. Our server did an excellent job checking in with us - not too much, not too little - just right! I had the spaghetti and meatballs, and it was great. The meatballs were just like my mom's. My 16 yr old son ordered a chicken dish and cleaned his plate! Needless to say, he totally enjoyed it. Nothing but positive comments on the food. The atmosphere was pleasant. We were there at dinner, so we got dim lights. We went to La Tosca based on the reviews that were posted, and I'll have to say, the reviewers did a great job! We plan on returning with a few of our friends.

We have been to La Tosca many times - twice in the last week. Always fun, good food, and great service - Luke and his brother are great. The piano player/singer is a terrific plus.

The waiter Luke was very attentive & funny!
They accommodated our dog Jack as we sat outside. It was lovely!

For Ladies who Lunch!
Celebrating a friend's birthday. We both had the special filet of sole. Very tasty with mashed potatoes & asparagus. Waiter was so nice! They presented tiramisu to both of us free of charge to celebrate the birthday girl!
Go there for lunch as they should be busier than they are & the food is better than a lot of the other busier restaurants on Laurel St. in San Carlos.
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Hadn't been here in a while. Still excellent food. Had a great waiter who was friendly, but not over the top. Knew when to show up at the table. Food came to the table piping hot, the way I like it. Will go back soon.

Everytime I eat here I'm impressed by the service and the quality of food. I love hearing the chanteuse while we're dining; it makes for a very romantic evening. And I love their desserts. They're spectacular.
