    I have to say that although the evening was nice we cannot give it the top marks as previous visits. There was not the top interest from the start to finish. Somehow there was no management on duty or not visible which reflected in the lack of interest From the entire staff, seemed to be very lackluster.

    We had a lovely dinner and will definitely return. I had the pappardelle Oslo bucco which was flavorful and just the right amount of food. My husbands shrimp scampi was just okay. It lacked seasoning and the shrimp was over cooked. We had the prosciutto and melon to start which was fabulous! Service was very good and the restaurant was full.

    My Los Olas favorite for a relaxing dining experience under the stars . Enjoy sparkling Italian wine, sparkling conversation and a Italy inspired menu that's sure to please . Recommend Mediterrranean Branzino, as a special" that night entree" and the Caprese salad is as good as it gets. My dining partners really enjoyed the Pumkin Ravioli. While dining on weekends, enjoy the sounds of great standards from the Piano Bar. Put it all together for a very affordable evening of dining ,wining,and romancing.

It was chilly that night but they had the heaters out. Our server was knowledgeable on wines and was attentive. From the bread at the beginning to the last bite of my meal, I enjoyed. I will absolutely be back.

    We have enjoyed dining at the Tuscan Grill over several years - our favorite Italian restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale area. Always good to very good Italian food and wine. Service can slip on busy nights but this time was just right for the two of us. Piano player was top notch and aided in the outdoor atmosphere.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    It was Valentine's Day and pouring rain. We were seated in the below ground dining area that was open to a garden and the street above. On a clear night it would have been very romantic. The pianist was outstanding. But the pouring rain was coming in at the side and the folks seated near the opening were getting wet. One man was sitting with his open unbrella over his head and back. They did not to my knowledge offer to move him. The floor which was concrete was wet with the draning water. The food was just OK, the past was very dry and we asked for more sauce and we were accomodated. The experience was just something to talk about. However, I would like to go back on a clear night and try it again because it was very romantic.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 12/8/2012
    Good food, though the puttanesca was lacking in flavor and spice. Not at all what I am used to. I would recommend this restaurant to friends, with the caveat that they not sit at the round table. Though the six of us loved the location of the table, and the fact that it was round and not rectangular (much easier for conversation)it was situated right under two a/c vents that dripped during the entire meal. While we were eating, someone came with a mop-type apparatus and wiped them off. We all immediately covered our food with our napkins and hands, not sure what was going to fall off onto the table. It really didn't help for long, so rearranged our seating so that the drips fell in between us. Sort of put a damper on the evening.

    We are frequent diners at Tuscan grill but this time the service was horrendous and the food just above that. The waiter argued with us about an overcharge. We had ordered ice cream with an espresso to be poured over it...affogato...the ice cream was served and after a fifteen minute wait, because there were no waiters around! we got the espresso . Then we were charged extra for it. The pasta with shrimp was non descript and the Branzini overly peppered. The vegetables were cold. Hopefully the chef who usually cooks was having a day off and when we return the usual high standard will have returned.

    Three years ago we dined at Tuscan Grill. Party of three. Food very good. When the bill came, the tip was added in but the waiter declined to advise us and I noticed it as I was adding a tip in. This time, just tonight......, same experience. Food good, party of three, and tip added in when the credit card signage slip was presented. We were not informed of this and the waiter was pissed when we asked him. Probably did not want the other diners near us to hear because he was intending to do the same to them. WOW. So disappointed. Owners.......if you condone this.....shame on you......If not.......stop it.......took us three years to retry. Will have to think hard before I entertain the idea of returning.

    Loved this place. We went on a Wednesday night of our vacation and we sat down by the water. It was as if we were the only ones there (there were other large tables of familes with kids), but we never really noticed. Our server was very personalble asking about us and spending time sharing his own experinces of Texas. My husband had really been wanting fetticini alfredo with grilled shrimp but it was not on the menu. No worries, the chef made it special for him and it was the best ever!!! He loved it and still speaks of how wonderful the pasta and sauce tasted. We will always return to Tuscan Grill when in Ft. Lauderdale.

    Four of us dined and ordered different items, each entree had issues. The braised short ribs, should have been fork-tender -- they were dry and overcooked like shoe leather. The pasta with it, tasted like BBQ sauce, not a red wine reduction. The risotto with the scallops was way undercooked, if you've ever had uncooked rice -- it's inedible. The Bolengnese was very average. Don't waste your money -- it's too bad because it appears to be a charming dining spot.

Dimly lit and romantic but also perfect for small groups (6 or under). The restaurant features outside seating on Las Olas Blvd as well, which is great for couples.

    What another terrific meal at the Tuscan Grill. So much to choose from on the menu along with the special items, but somehow you still feel like the selections are carefully crafted. Everything from the service, location, to the food quality and creativity is primo! The sales manager, Gabriel, is always there with a huge warm smile to greet each guest and ensure they're accommodated for their every whim. The food, outstanding. This time I enjoyed the short rib ravioli with porcini mushroom sauce. With the garnish of just a little truffle oil sealed the deal. Unbelievable. The Tuscan Grill is always in my rotation for a special evening of terrific ambience and outstanding Italian food!

    Nice out door dining on the river. Our waiter was very attentive. Portions are ample. Enough to split unless you have a huge appetite. We split Caesar salad. (Just enough dressing ) and pumpkin ravioli with sage butter and pine nuts. Amazingly good. Garlic rolls and eggplant, olive tapenade are complimentary and great for a starter. The wine list could have more choices from places other than Italy. All in all a very enjoyable experience.
