    Meal was outstanding. Best meal I have had on the South Shore. No complaints only admiration for the freshness of the served food and its tastiness. After 35 years in Europe my wife and I were dying to try the steak tartar.....It did not disappoint. Super freshly ground beef with all the classic seasoning. Well done! The pasta dishes were freshly made, freshly served and full of bold taste. We had single glasses of wine which were very generous portions and lasted the whole meal. We were accompanied by a handicapped member of the family in a walking frame which was very easily accommodated by the staff. We were very thankful.

    We had 8:00 reservations and our waiter didn't come over to our table until 8:30. He didn't even introduce himself. He took our food order at 8:45. My girlfriend ordered a pasta dish for dinner. Our waiter didn't ask if she wanted to make the dish a main entree and just brought her the appetizer version. He only filled our waters once - and that was after we had finished dinner. It was clear that he was busy throughout the night but the service we experienced at Tosca was one of the worst we have ever had. The food itself and the wine were actually delicious. We came to Tosca at the recommendation of friends but with the slow and poor service we had, we would never recommend anyone to Tosca. One of the most frustrating dining experiences.

    I've heard great things and I was looking forward to my first visit- the atmosphere was lovely but the service was lacking and the food was good but over-priced. It was downtown Boston prices without the downtown or the quality of food.

    We are frequent diners here. Usually great service, great ambiance, and good food. We have noticed in the past year that the service quality has diminished and in this time was terrible. We had an 8pm reservation, and checked in with the hostess when we arrived around 7:45pm and said we would be over at the bar and she indicated she would come find us when our table was ready. 8pm came and went and so I checked in again, 8:25 came and went checked in again, she never came and got us, finally seated around 8:30 with no apology. They seemed very understaffed and waiter barely gave us time of day and seem put off by requests for bread, water etc. Food not great either, service bad. May look for new favorite spot.

    very disappointing. We had the worse table in the place... It was sooo crowded I had to tap people on the shoulder and ask them to move because they were on top on our table. We ordered a bottle of wine before dinner...finished that and ordered another one. It took 20 minutes for it and they brought the wrong bottle. I do not expect that from a restaurant like Tosca. The waiter came after 15 minutes and told us after we had drank the first glass. Never offered to comp it or anything. Three out of the four of us ordered the special (ribeye) and they all complained about how tough it was. We have been there several times before but I will not be in a rush to go back. It is very expensive to leave and not be happy!!

    We've been going to Tosca 2-3 times a year since it opened. The remarkable thing about it is IT GETS BETTER WITH EVERY VISIT! This restaurant never takes things for granted and seems to be pushing to get better all the time. Great food, classy room, good wine list (special kudos to the half bottle wine list) and nice people. Thanks Tosca!

    We have been going to Tosca for years and always had a great experience there. The food is consistently very good and the service is usually great. Our most recent visit was not as positive for our party because our server kept trying to "sell us up" to more expensive wines, more appetizers, etc. Our friends had never been to Tosca before and by the end of the evening, we were feeling disappointed and a little "ripped off."

    Make reservations and bring your wallet fully loaded but worth the money. Long wine list and very knowledgable staff but wine is very expensive. Our server said she had been there 13 years, she made recommendations and let us know about splitting larger portion dishes to get the most out of the food. We both had filet and the sauces were delicious. Sautéed mushrooms were the best dish on the table!

    Should have guessed that a Friday night in mid-September could mean Rehearsal Dinner. Our server was informed, friendly, and attentive, but the kitchen was overwhelmed by the RD crowd in a private dining room. Pizza crust ordinarily thin and toasty didn't get enough time in the brick oven, risotto was al dente, one in our party didn't get her entree until 5+ minutes after the others had been delivered, the wine glasses aren't as nice as they used to be.... We'll go back, because this visit was out of character, but Tosca has been in business too long to flub a busy Friday night.

    Our kids enjoyed the calamari and steak tartare as much as we did. Cheryl our waitress made the wise decision not to offer us a kid'so menu, but quietly checked with me first. The only disappointment was my meal: I ordered the special, pan seared halibut, which was dry and uninteresting for $35.

    The interior is beautiful, the waitstaff knowledgeable and polite, the food quite good. We ordered three dishes, which the waiter (Chris) served to us on separate plates, which was an unrequested bonus. We started with the porcini mushroom pizza (Chris suggested the food sequence). I was glad to be looking at my date as she took her first bite, because her face melted with foodie-joy unlike I've ever seen before. We then had the butter lettuce salad which we agreed was a disappointment. Either too much vinegar in the vinegrette, or too much vinegrette. This was followed by the pan-seared scallops, which my date loved and I thought quite good. It was a very nice night, and we will return.

    Had a great dinner as usual at this restaurant which is why we drive all the way to Hingham from Lexington several times a year. Questioning however why my ledger indicates that I only received 100 points for the reservation that night ,August 23rd, when the selection clearly indicated that it was a 1000 point night. Didn't take away from the evening or the restaurant by any means. We will return.

    Perhaps we ordered wrong, but the food was a huge let down and very expensive. Its sad that obviously hand made pasta and tasty short rib meatballs can be served in a sauce that looked and tasted like a puddle of water. We ended up dumping out the water and taking this dish home. Later, I made a proper marinara sauce and had a second dinner, as I was starving from not being able to eat at Tosca. I also ordered the 'liver and onions' which came with exactly two, microscopic, pieces of liver, drowned by a sauce that would be more fitting in an overly sweet dessert. The Pizza was not bad, but i swear they drizzled the same nasty sauce on it as well. Luckily, they used it sparingly this time. Our waiter was a sweetheart. Two stars for her!

    It is probably my third or fourth time at Tosca and I love it. It is big and can get loud, but I love it! :) Pizzas are great, hug portions (the appetizer size portion of the pasta dishes is usually enough)! Wine is on the pricey side. I wish they had more $30-$45 options in the menu.

We were running late I called to let them know we had a reservation. Even the hostess was so pleasant and nice. Our waitress Robin was a 10 just loved her personality and her expertise on the the menu. It was really refreshing to have a great waitress that was sincere. Hats off to your chef the food was fabulous. We have not stopped talking about it. Thank you for making our dinner worth everything we went threw to get out. Can't wait to visit you again.
