Gorgeous Tuscan-style restaurant.
Gorgeous Tuscan-style restaurant. Great layout and very open space inside. Outside looks out over a cute grass area and a nice shopping center. The food was great and the service was ALMOST impeccable. We were taken great care of except at the end our server kind of forgot about us. Seemed like he had a big party he was taking care of inside - we chalked it up to one of those things that just happens every so often and didn't let it ruin our great evening. The warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream was outstanding!

Good, needs mid-range priced wines
We really like Toscanova and eat there fairly regularly. Our recent dinner was the first time we've experienced any glitches. Yes, it was Saturday night and on a busy weekend, but we were at an outside table and service was slow. Several times, one of us had to go look for the waiter. Also, I understand that they're an Italian restaurant, but Calabasas is an hour from Santa Barbara and three hours from Paso, and it would be great if they would offer more local wines at more reasonable prices. I was not in charge of selecting the wines, but I felt that they were extremely expensive (close to $100 a bottle), and quite frankly, I didn't care for them. There were a few wines in the $45 range, but the Cabs were pricey.

Not you Mama's Italian
The menu is limited and NOT run-of-the-mill. You won't find Chicken Parm. on the menu, but the Asparagus and Shrimp Rissoto was delectable. The bread basket features several varieties of bread which was yummy. My companion had the White Fish which disappeared off the plate. The service was exceptional. All-in-all, I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Delightful for lunch
This was my first time at Toscanova, based on a friend's recommendation. It is light, cheerful and relaxing, with lots of windows, glass walls and outdoor seating. It has a near elegant feel, yet the prices are moderate. I need to return and check it out for an evening meal soon.

Not kid-friendly, otherwise great.
I love the food, lovely location in Calabasas Commons.. no kids menu though they are happy to order you a half plate of anything for your children. Or split it in two. I will definitely go back.

Great lunch spot!!
I've eaten at both the Calabasas and Century City Toscanova restaurants and have always enjoyed it. Recently met a friend in Calabasas and enjoyed the patio setting. Good menu choices and the service is very attentive.
A large group was celebrating a graduation and it is a nice place for such an occasion.

A Little Tuscany in Calabasas
Dining at Toscanova reminds me of dining in Italy. Authentic dishes that satisfy. Great cocktails too! Don't miss their special Sea Bream that is fileted at the table. Mutto bene!

This was our first time at Toscanova and we really enjoyed it. We sat out on the beautiful patio. Our food was outstanding. I had the Jumbo Prawns special and it was delicious. The wait staff was very attentive and it made for a nice evening. We will be back!

We had a lovely dinner with out of town guests. They loved the food, the service was outstanding. They were out of the wine we wanted, but that was the only snag.

Best in the area
Food is always excellent. Service by Michael is over the top outstanding. Wine is pricey. Pick from their specials.

The dining experience was
The dining experience was very good and our waiter was excellent. He gave great recommendations and was very attentive. The food was well prepared and very good. The only issue I had was that there were several empty tables yet the hostess sat us in a table that was so close to the table next to us it was as if we were one party. The waiter sensed this and we were quickly moved to a better more comfortable table. Toscanova is in a great peaceful location.

Great Italian restaurant
My friends and I dined at the Calabasas location of Toscanova and had a very wonderful dining experience. I can't wait to go back to try more items on the menu. We happened to be at the restaurant when dineLA started on Monday and the restaurant was very gracious in implementing the special menu. We were pleasantly surprised with the large portions so we were able to share our dishes. We had the eggplant parmigiana, steamed salmon with cucumber and water cress salad, grilled octopus and linguine with pesto sauce. Everything was so delicious.

Very good food and service
This is a very reasonably priced restaurant. Indoor and outdoor dining is available. Service is excellent and the food is very good.

Patio is fabulous
I noted on my reservation that we wanted the patio, and reconfirmed when the restaurant called to confirm, Our party of six was given a lovely table. We have been to Toscanova before, as it is close to home, and always enjoy it , but tonight's service and food were superb indeed.

The family wanted to try something new and we were pleasantly surprised. The service was good, the ambience was good, the timing was good and the food was delicious. The food even satisfied the pickiest eaters in our family. The busboy even offered to open the leaves on our table to give us a little more room without having to be asked.

My new spot
Had a wonderful evening, everyone at the restaurant made sure my out of country guests enjoyed their delicious food and attentive service. Thank you to everyone who made it such s wonderful dining experience.

They prepped for my newbie with private rooms chair bf I arrived. The beautiful waitress was personable, accommodating, patient, n made dinner a comical banter with our male companion. Only cons: Mediterranean fish special has small bones still in it n was so overly salted in many areas of that it was inedible, tho we tried hard to enjoy it & chicken parmigiana is thin as a milanesa so it was dry n lacking in texture or taste of chicken. The rest: grilled octopus, calamari, filet, paparadelle pasta...delish!

New at Calabasas Commens
Crowded Friday night... noise level inside was a bit high so we requested a table outside, which was much better. Food was very good!

Food was good, although the lentil soup was bland.
Wine by the glass and specials wee pricey.
Nice experience, but not a great value.

Excellent Lunch Spot
I recently had lunch at Toscanova and it was outstanding. The service and food were both first rate and I highly recommend this restaurant.

A night in Italy
Needed to find a halfway location between Ventura & Pasadena so I decided on Calabasas. Not my usual place to dine so did some research online. Came across The Commons and saw Toscanova. Since we were meeting the day after Thanksgiving, we thought Italian cuisine would be a nice change of pace! The service was attentive (but not overly so), & the food was outstanding! We had the spaghetti scampi. I love my pasta al dente & my favorite is when the sauce is cooked right with the pasta. That's exactly how our dish was prepared! The decor was very modern and the lighting was just right (dinner time). The only issue--the noise level. It was extremely noisy where a table of 5 couldn't hear each other. Other than that, we will definitely be back!

3rs time we dined at this restaurant and again it met our expectations with respect to quality and taste of food and service.
