    The decor is nice. The staff was pleasant. The food was good. This was a nice dining experience but not great or spectacular. I overhead a server say the owners are opening a tapas restaurant next door - I would try that but I don't think I'll be back here.

    Our family decided to look for someone else to cook Thanksgiving dinner for us this year then we saw on FB that Toscana was doing it so we decided to go there. It was fabulous! You can just tell that everything was homemade. The turkey excellent, so tender, mash potato was great and last but not least, the Pumpkin cheesecake! It was soooo good I usually don't like pumpkin that much but this one was delicious so I had to come back today for another slice. The restaurant was also packed on a Monday night. We were so glad we got to get our turkey dinners. Thank you Toscana, you never disappoint.

  • Thanksgiving dinner

    Deciding not to cook the turkey this year, 3 of us went looking for a restaurant that served a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. This was our first experience with Toscana. Probably Toscana does a good job with Italian food, but the turkey dinner was disappointing. We were hoping for real turkey carved from a whole bird. We were served slices of seasoned turkey breast roll , drizzled with what looked like cranberry syrup (no whole cranberries in sight). The mashed potatoes were cold and lumpy. The dressing, vegetables and pumpkin cheese cake were all done well. Our server was pleasant and attentive. If we go again, we will try something Italian!

    This was our first visit to Toscana Italian Grill. The service was warm and friendly, the food tasted great and the serving sizes were perfect. We made our reservation with Open Table and I was greeted by name. We weren't rushed out after finishing our meal and we enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. We will definitely come back again.

    This was our 4th or 5th visit to Toscana Grill, every one very good. Due to health issues my wife has dietary concerns, and our server didn't hesitate to offer to check with the chef to identify ingredients, and exclude the same from my wife's entree. The tiger shrimp was delicious, as was everything we ordered, and the staff welcoming and friendly.

    Toscana is the best Italian restaurant in their area. Service was very good - from the man that greeted at the door, to our server who even though she was busy, always made sure our water glasses and coffee cups were full. Their special for that night was pasta w/lobster in a tomato sauce. The pasta was cooked perfectly, and the lobster was plentiful - we thoroughly enjoyed it.

    The meal and service were excellent. The only flaw I found, and I know it's just me, I went for an enjoyable dinner and I really didn't want to have to tolerate some noisy annoying children. It would be nice if there was a section that there were no children and not in the bar, but the overall meal and service were great.

    We were a group of 5 adults for a Sat 6pm dinner reservation. 1st time eating there. Entrees were all cooked to order and super fresh. Their pastas and sauces are best anyone in our group had in eaten in awhile. Restaurant was about 2/3rds full, but it was first decent weather in weeks so understandable that it wasnt totally full. Bar was out of stock on a couple of beers and waitress was lost when it came to bar menu, but she was otherwise great. Bar section is small but looks like its worth trying on next visit. Will definitely go back.

    Toscana was excellent from the second we stepped foot into the door. Friendly waiter and waitresses that tended to our every need. We were very surprised at the speed of service. We had the calamari for an appetizer and it was to die for! Best I've ever had. For a main I had the special which was Mahi Mahi with a grilled pineapple salsa, veggies and rice. It was simply amazing. Good sized portions too. The waiters name was Gino and he was very kind and customer oriented. You definitely have to hit up this restaurant! I know I'll be going back 100%!

    We booked reservation through open table which went seamless, we reached there, the ambience was good, we ordered juice for kids, they did not have a kids cup, food was very cheesy, u can get much better italian food anywhere in the city....so food was ok ok, then the waitress did not mention that there was gratuity included in the bill for a group, so we ended up double tipping and felt cheated.

    Four friends went to Toscana and one asked about the daily soup. Because it sounded so good, carrot and ginger, we all decided to have some. What a wonderful taste sensation. I would have ordered another bowl, but I had already ordered some pasta. This was a delicious lunch and everyone loved the food.

    My favorite restaurant by far. Atmosphere is quiet and romantic. Food is excellent. The owner greats you at the door and remembers you, something not found at other restaurants. Online reservation booking works flawlessly. I have sampled most of their menu to date and have yet to find anything that didn't live up to their very demanding standards.You must try their chocolate cake. It is to die for.

    We have dined at this very friendly restaurant at least twice and have enjoyed all our selections. The food is fresh and tasty, and is well presented. We have tried their desserts once and have decided to continue having their creme caramel and tiramisu at every meal! The creme caramel was the best I've had in Calgary, silky, light and not too sweet. A beautiful meal.

    Very early Friday dinner. Really good food and really good service. My first visit found the food 'average', and in all honesty, this was about as good, BUT - the previous time was a late night visit, as opposed to earlier. We had a great server (Manny) ans al the dishes were good. I loved it and will definitely be back.
