    4 of us went to Toscana's for my Bday get together and everything was delicious. The wine (chardonnay and Pinot Grigeo) were fantastic. We had the bruscetta app with 2 of us ordering Chicken Saltimbocca and the others got Veal Saltimbocca and Braised Haddock .... so good! I would definately go back again!

    Toscana's consistently serves up a delicious meal and a great dining experience. I brought my 85 year old mother and my 27 year old son and we had one terrific meal. The food, the wine, and the energy in the restaurant on a Friday night all combined to produce a delightful evening. The calamari and the veal are as good as any place I've found from Boston to San Francisco. The staff was appropriately attentive - the only way the meal could have been improved was if I had a larger stomach. Toscana's can be counted on for great food at a very reasonable price.

    Went there with my mother and husband at the recommendation of a friend. We made a reservation for 5:45pm and were seated promptly. Our waitress was very attentive. We ordered salads with our meals which were served within minutes. They were very good. During this time the restaurant started to fill up. We were seated next to the fireplace. Shortly before our meals arrived the noise level in the room had elevated to an unbearable level. It was awful. Couldn't hear each other at our own table. This continued throughout our dinner. Now on to the meals..... Veal Parm - large piece, but it was dry with a dollop of what tasted like tomato paste. Fusilli Florentine - soggy, too much sauce. Pasta in Vodka sauce - had an awful taste.

    Met my girlfriends for lunch. It wes our first time at the restaurant. I had the veal marsala and my friends both had the eggplant parm. The entrees were all delicious. For dessert , I had the chocolate torte and my friends had the lemon cake. They commented that their dessert, recommended by our wonderful waitress, was light and delightful. My chocolate torte was lighter than what you'd usually get in other restaurants which was just the way I liked it. Definitely will go back.

    WONDERFUL meal, Fantastic service (Thank you Christine!). The owners are on site and check in at every table - very nice! We especially enjoyed the little things - someone constantly around with water, great wine/beer list, friendly atmosphere - everyone seemed happy to work here. And the food! WOW!!!! Fantastic. We ordered the shirmp brushetta and there was more shirmp then bread. Our meals were huge - enough food for lunch the next day. WE WILL BE BACK! LOVED IT!

    I had only gotten food delivered from Toscana's so I was surprised to see where it was located. The parking lot is kind of dark and deserted. Probably ok in the daytime, but I'd rather not go at night. The inside was perfectly nice, however. The food was good, not fantastic, but good. The waiter was great. Friendly, very attentive.

    This was my first time dining at Toscana's. We had 6 in our party and a 6:15 reservation. Seated in a banquet room with 2 other large tables. Music was blaring a mix between italian opera, national anthem and show tunes. Bizarre! We had to find our server to take our order finally at 7:15. Food came out at 7:50. One dinner was missing the melted mozzarella on the top of the dish. The total dining experience took 2 hours for ordering just entrees. No apps, no salads or desserts. Food was just ok. Not a great experience. Would not go back.

    Picked this restaurant for convenience and solid on-line reviews. We were not disappointed. Our 6:00p reservation was found immediately and we were taken right to our table. Service was friendly, speedy, and without issue throughout. The menu gave us lots of choices, and there were specials offered that evening, too. Everything we ordered, wine, appetizers, entrees, was perfectly done, and a delight to the pallette. I will be back again and will not hesitate to recommend it to my friends.

    After many recommendations. we finally made it to Toscana's. We found a somewhat quaint, outdated ambiance, but very friendly staff.The scampi scampi appetizer was superb. I ordered veal piccata that turned out to be the other white meat, not veal at all. It was promptly replaced with an apology. The gnocchi, was large, chewy and too doughy, perhaps a little undercooked. The veal tower with fresh arrugala my wife had was very good. We then waited for an extended period for our waiter to reappear to get our check (a complaint heard from 2 other tables while we were waiting).

    When arriving to the resturant reservations was at 715 got seated at 730 when I told the girl I had resvations she looked at me like I had 8 heads. Service was not good it was busy but couldn't even ask us for drinks food ect I had to flagged them down for something. Food took like 45 min after the order was taken. So if your hungry come earlier. Food wasn't that great food was bland and cold. At this point I just wanted to leave. Got the check and left. I believed we left around 9 ish so if you have the time to hang out this might be your place with okay food. Maybe if the food was good I could overlook everything but this resturant is a never again

    We had a 8:45 reservation and when we got there after driving 50 minutes to get to dinner the hostess said your table has people at it but it should be about 10 to 15 minutes. Then she left her station for a while and came back to tell us that she is sorry she didn't see our reservation and that a table will be coming soon. She left her station again as this seemed to be the theme of the night. I have never seen a hostess not be at her station as much as she was. It was very loud in there. You couldn't hear the specials as the waiter spoke about them and my husband and I couldn't hear each other talk. I would not reccommend this restaurant not so much of the noise but the time it took to get to our table after we had out reservations.

    Great food but all of the service was devoted to the local diners. Our server was hurried, forgetful, and unable to deliver our courses to our table of 6 at the same time. The food, meanwhile, was terrific. Classic Italian fare with fresh ingredients and excellent flavors. I'll pass on a return trip unless I choose to relocate to the area.

    When I pulled into the parking lot I was unsure of how good this place could be...little road off rt 1 in a strip mall. Toscana's did not disappoint! I had the penne a la vodka, creamy and tasty. My friends had the piccata and veal parm... both very good. It got noisy after a while but overall a very good place for Italian fare. The prices also were very reasonble. I will come back.

    Very good Italian cuisine. Young wait staff, but polite and attentive. Not a lot or room: tables are close together. Bar is within earshot and was packed on the Friday night we were there. Noise was the big negative. Ambience is neighborhood bistro: very informal, large family dining.
