    The service was amazing, the food delicious, ambiance and lighting amazing, good music and the bar and drinks awesome. Only complaint is frozen drinks very light on the alcohol, other than that great place. I can recommend a hundred times over and know I've provided a service for someone.

    always too noisy! Not sure why management here insists on catering to a younger crowd and blasting music during dinner hours.....some adults actually want to enjoy the company of their dinner partners and have a conversation without yelling across the table...here's a thought...maybe, they could start music after 10:00 PM when nightlife starts!

    MUSIC WAS TOO LOUD AND NOT CONDUCIVE TO A ROMANTIC DINING EXPERIENCE. I DON'T SEE WHY A DJ IS NECESSARY AT 1PM. WHEN I ASKED ABOUT THE MUSIC, I WAS TOLD THE MANAGER SELECTS IT. I THINK THE GENRE IS CHOSEN MORE FOR THE YOUTHFUL STAFF THAN THE CUSTOMER. OTHER THAN THAT, A VERY NICE SPOT.

    Chicken scarp was terrible I had to send it back and I ordered penne instead which wasn't terrible but wasn't worth 15 dollars, it didnt taste fresh like it does in other italian restaurants. The only thing I really enjoyed was my drink. Pretty disappointing visit I don't know if it was because I went earlier in the day but it wasn't what I expected. The waitress was fakely polite. I won't be returning here anytime soon.

    I planned a surprise birthday dinner here for my husband. We were accommodated so well! I asked if my party could be sat before we arrived and we had no issues with that. Other places would have disagreed. The hostess was great with keeping it a surprise. The waiter did not realize we had a cake, but as soon as I asked the hostess, they jumped right on it. Everyone was very nice! No complaints here at all! Thank you Toscas for everything.

    I took my family out there for this past mother's day and boy was it something worth wild. We arrived 15 min early before our reservation time and it wasn't much of an issue, we were sat right away with a waitress on deck within the first two minutes of our seating. The food was absolutely delicious and it couldn't have been any better. My only con for this would be since it was a mother's day dinner, they had a pre-fixed menu with not many options and most of us at the good ol' chicken Parmesan with a side of penne reggate. Overall, great food, great dining experience, wonderful customer service, and just a plain good ol' time.

  • Patron's nightmare
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 5/10/2014
    This was the first time we visited the restaurant, we we're greeted by a hostess who told us the "next time we made a reservation on a busy day we had to leave a deposit", not to mention they had called us and I confirmed we would be there and we arrived 10 min prior to our reservation. It was unprofessional to greet patrons in this manner, they should really learn a thing or two about customer service. The table they provided was good, since it was away from all the noise. Since it was a busy day the hostess had problems servicing us timely, we waited a long time for drinks/apps and entree's. The food was good, nothing out of the ordinary , oh I forgot to mention they messed my father in laws dinner, which they tried to charge him for.

    Went on a special occasion for dinner. Food was OK. Prices are a bit high. I don't think you get enough for what you pay. I also don't know why they would charge 18% automatically to the bill for a party of 5... I've never experienced this before. Will not go back. Many more places I can go for better food and prices. This place is overhyped.

    My dinner came up to $105.22, which i found to be great for 3 adults. The only problem was that, my waiter was training a waitress and she charged my card $183.10 for someone else tab. So now itz a waiting game for my refund in the difference. Anyone in training should not be alowwed to check people out without the supervision of a regular! Other than that I will visit again. The setting is always nice, the music always welcoming and the staff overall are always professional

    We went here for Father's Day and I was so happy we chose Tosca! I read the reviews and look at pictures before going there. I chose penne a la vodka and it was DELICIOUS!! Definitely a must have. It was a bit busy and the waiter was running around but he was attentive. The front desk lady was friendly and walked us to our table. The menu has something for everyone! Go check it out :))

    What a great find in the Bronx! The food was delicious and the drinks were AMAZING: creative, seasonal cocktails perfectly concocted! It's so great to know that there's a neighborhood gem right in our backyard -- I no longer have to trek to Manhattan for great food and drinks, in a contemporary restaurant with modern, understated, tasteful decor. BTW, we ordered the Osso buco, lobster ravioli, and a cod/seafood special and we walked away stuffed and overly satisfied!

    I've been coming for years but this first visit for dinner was not what I expected. We ordered penne ala vodka with shrimp, lamb shank over spinach fettuccine, sirloin steak, and grilled swordfish with an asparagus,onion, olive hot salad. It wasn't all that great-- Steak came already cut up and that says alot about the knowledge of cooking. Not one restaurant that can cook a steak will serve it to the customer already sliced. Pizza's good and sangria is delicious( nice and strong with wine and not sweet) Overall not impressed and will only be returning for sangria and pizza, nothing more.

    A group of us went to Tosca for lunch. The drinks were delicious and out of the usual fare. The foos and service were also very good. Everyone enjoyed the appetizers, entrees (mostly salads) and desert. I found the gelato unappetizing (eggy tasting), but others who had it didn't notice the issue. I would definitely return for a different meal; I've heard brunch is the highlight!
