Awesome dining under the stars
Tosca is a hidden gem in South Beach. Its a really spectacular space that leaves you speechless- awesome gardens. Service was a bit slow between courses but the food was really good- simply prepared but really high quality. They have this crazy pasta dish where they mix the pasta in a parmesan wheel table-side then use a blow torch to melt the edges- never seen anything like anywhere- a step up from table-side guacamole- ha! Will definetly be back especially since they now have a $75 tasting menu which has that pasta dish on it. Prices can be really really high but its defineltly a restaurant I won't forget

Absolutely loved my time at
Absolutely loved my time at Tosca. Was so surprised to have found this hidden gem. First off, the ambiance was beautiful, romantic, and effortless. Perfect for my date night. Upon arrival, we were greeted politely, and the service was great. Although the meals may have been a little bit pricey, the ingredients used in our meals were extremely fresh, that I did not mind at all. Definitely recommending this restaurant to others, and will be returning.

Amazing food and superb service.
Amazing food and superb service. We had the 7 course tasting menu and the fettuccine dish was the most memorable. Love the atmosphere and definitely a cool vibe.

Not over-priced. Under-valued.
Tosca opened many months ago and we were told that it was ridiculously over-priced. We assumed it was just another iteration of failed restaurant attempts waiting to happen in this space, and didn't go there. On a whim we went there recently and were pleasantly surprised to discover that they aren't over-priced at all! There is a wonderful selection at price points not at all unlike other Italian restaurants in the area with far less to offer.
We spoke with Nicolas, the Assistant Manager, at length about our perception of Tosca versus the reality. He told they adjusted their menu and price point to accommodate the local market shortly after opening but word is just getting out. This was an incredible experience.

Chic with substance
Went to Tosca off the recommendation of a friend, but had little insight into what to expect. I felt like a child in a candy store as the hostess led me through the small front bar and out into the open-air restaurant. The entire venue is open to a romantic, charming, garden. Mature vegetation, chandeliers, twinkle lights, and a bubbling fountain transport you to the Italian Riviera. The overall restaurant decor is uber-chic, but in a genuinely comfortable, totally lounge-comfy manner. It was insanely cool, crazy chic, and utterly romantic. The food was surprisingly good --try the gnocci with truffles. Service was top notch. Highest praise to the affable sommelier and delightful manager Danny Pena! Best restaurant I've been to in years.

NIce newcomer to Miami scene.
NIce newcomer to Miami scene. It was kind of empty for a Friday night. The food is very good, service as well. The manager is very kind and knowledgeble. There is something missing to be a hot spot.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere...beautiful outdoor and indoor seating, deejay spinning music that is appropriate for the atmosphere and a friendly staff, especially Danny, the manager. Be prepared to spend here, as it's not cheap, but the ingredients are fresh and from Italy. We both ordered pasta dishes, mine being the $60 fettuccine with mascarpone cheese served tableside. It was to die for, between the truffles and the parmesan wheel. So rich and delicious. My boyfriend had the short rib and foie gras agnolotti and said it was really good. For dessert we had the chocolate mousse (heaven!) & the pineapple flambe. They were both great. You can only order wine by the bottle, so come with that in mind.

over zealous waiter doesn't know wh
Love this romantic restaurant. The food is also surprisingly good. But the waiter has to explain the whole menu to us like we are morons. Another waiter has to tell us how to eat an artichoke thinking we have never seen one. Please give us some credit. I ordered the $60 Fetttuchini with truffles and the waiter has the nerve to shave 2 truffles on top. Yes, you heard right 2 truffles!! You have got to be kidding me. If you are going to charge those prices then deliver. I've been around the block a few times and have ordered pasta with truffles before. We complained and you think we would get a free dessert or a drink, not just a feeble apology. All this aside, we still love the restaurant.

Our experience at Tosca was first class all the way. The service was exceptional and attentive, and the chef's preparations were so unique our group is still talking about it several days later. The fish and the steaks were some of the best ever prepared. We gathered at Tosca for a special occasion and the most memorable part was experiencing such variety of flavors in such a great atmosphere.

We have lived in SoBe for ten years and this is one of the best meals we've had here. We ordered the Miami Spice menu as well as numerous items off the menu. The gazpacho taste was a wonderful beginning. The octopus was fabulous. A little smokey flavor.
The Branzino was terrific. The steak was cooked perfectly and so moist. The fetticuine- that they are known for - was the best we have had. Preparing it at the table was a treat. The chocolate mousse was good. The tiramisu not so great. The tasting menu for two is a huge amount of food - too much for us. The Miami Spice menu is plenty. Service started off great - attentive and pleasant. Then things slowed down in fact our waiter pretty much disappeared. Great corner booth! Will go back!

No explaination of the dishes.
The only thing that we miss to rate this restaurant as excellent was: the waiters brought the dishes to the table and did not explain anything about them.

LOVED the floor plan and decoration of the restaurant. it was comfortable, romantic, and interesting The service was exceptional. However way over priced it was over a 200$ dinner and the food was just OK. That is not acceptable. We had brochette it good but ridiculously small, 2 bites each. Then we sampled some meats and cheeses (gross), the fettuccine was spectacular but not worth 60$ maybe $30 tops. The Branzenio was good still not worth $60 though. had a filet that was horrible, tough, no flavor, and we did not eat it and did not want to take it home to our dogs that is how unappealing the $80+ dollar steak was.They were also out of many of the things on their menu which is unacceptable. restaurants should be better managed then that.

Wonderful food and service
We went to dinner for my fiancé's birthday and I made note that we were celebrating his birthday on my open table account. Normally, whenever I leave a note, it goes unnoticed but the second we walked in, they wished him a "Happy Birthday" and gave us a wonderful, romantic table outside. The service was fantastic. They were very attentive but also knew to respect our space and gave us time to enjoy our cocktails and food so we would not feel rushed. The food was excellent! It is on the pricey side but it's great for a special occasion. We will definitely be back!
