    My wife and I stopped at Toscano Ristorante after attending a lecture. We were very pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and the food was terrific. We even had enough food to take home and enjoy the next night - it was still very, very good. We shall be back!

    Walked in and was seated right away and we were half hour early. Waiter was very attentive and greated us with fresh bread and olives. Food was very good although a bit pricey for being a small town resturant were there was no parking walked 3 blocks to get to the front door. The resturant was loud so wouldn't recommend for a cozy romantic dinner. Would go back again but not often because of the price.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 2/19/2011
    Excellent food, with a presentation that rivals some of the more expensive eateries I've visited. Toscano certainly holds their own against any of the other upscale restaurants in the area and raises the bar with a friendlier-than-average staff. The wine list, while not as extensive as I would have liked, covers the necessities and offers some interesting options. I felt that the service was less than brisk, which is forgivable for a busy Saturday night. I wouldn't say that anything felt slow or delayed, but rather, relaxed and casual. The food itself was fantastic; cooked to perfection with a delightful presentation. I will certainly be back again soon.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 2/13/2011
    We dined for the first time at Toscano's. My fiance and I enjoyed the romantic, low-light atmosphere and the pleasant, quiet scene. We much prefer small, familiy-owned settings over chain restaurants that are boisterous with small children, so Toscano's was an excellent choice! Our male host was pleasant, friendly and knowledgable. The service was good. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised at the presentation of the food, the texture, the quality, and the taste! The prices were a bit high, but then, we did order seafood (Tilapia and Crab Cake), and it was the Valentine's Day menu, so that was expected. We plan on returning to try the regular menu.

We have several fine restaurants within a few miles of home but choose to drive 20 miles to this restaurant.

    Toscano is above par for a take-out italian restaurant. Given the some of the truly terrific restaurants in Mercer and Burlington County, I don't understand the "outstanding" ratings posted here. The salads were overdressed and some of the specials missed the mark, ie., chicken stuffed with filet mignon. All of the entrees came with the same garnish that looked like antenna. However, I must compliment our passionate and energetic server. He was the highlight of the dinner.

    The food was fantastic. Our server Debbie was very nice and really was a pleasure to have serve us. The pricing is very good and the portion sizes almost guarantee you will be bringing home leftover (which is a good thing). The mushroom risotto is sublime. Please tell your friends about Toscano. They will be glad you did!

    We first came to Toscano Ristorante for our son's 21st birthday in August 2010. Our experience then was superb, the mood and food were just perfect! So it was a pleasure to return for our anniversary in September. Our waitress was attentive but did not intrude. The food was excellent with servings suitable for an enjoyable meal with no "take home portions". Though the dining room was just about filled, the noise was reasonalbe so that conversation was not a shouting match. A delighful place in a quaint town. I recommend it for any special occasion.

    I was here for a birthday lunch for a coworker. The atmosphere allowed us to conversate and enjoy each other company confortable. The food was awesome: the soup special was crab bisque...WOW...and the lump of real crab garnish was perfect. I'm a Baltimore crab lover and i'm usually not impressed by what is passed off as crab cake, soup, etc in this area. I ordered Chicken Marsala for an entree and I was not disappointed. My coworker were equally impressed with there choice of entree: filet sandwich, scallop special.

    What an amazing find! My date, who lives in Bordentown, never knew this restaurant existed. We were both very impressed with Toscano's. The atmosphere in Toscano's was perfect. Just the right amount of lighting for a romantic evening. The food was excellent and presented in such a way that you just wanted to look at it and not eat it. It was a work of art. The wait staff was attentive without being overbearing. We look forward to our next visit.

    This was our first time to Toscano after hearing many friends and family rave about it. We tried a little bit of everything (appetizers, meats, desserts), and we were truly blown away. Of not for the price (expect to pay between 50-75 per person if you plan on having a drink or two), we would probably eat all of our meals here. We eat out a lot, love trying new places, and have never walked away from a restaurant so impressed before. Awesome place!
