Diner Reviews
  • "Strange title, but on a very rainy Saturday this restaurant defied our GPS and then we had to walk quite a distance in the rain to reach the door in an inner courtyard of a small shopping center. Valet parking with umbrellas would have been a classy touch. Once inside the atmosphere was warm and the food good. Veal Picatta, grilled salmon on greens, a traditional Caesar salad followed by light Italian custard with berries all were very good. Wines by the glass had a generous pour."

  • "Pasta was wonderful and cooked al dente to perfection! Wine was overpriced and served in a large glass. The wine did not even meet the halfway mark of the glass so I needed to order to glasses. $18 for 2 glasses of wine is too much, in my opinion and I ordered the least expensive one at that. I could have bought 3 bottles of great Italian wine at Trader Joes for that price. I thought that the wait staff was a little "stuffy' and unfriendly which made me a little uncomfortable. The outdoor dining area was very nice! I would only go there if we could eat outside. Bottom line is that it is great pasta and great outdoor ambiance. Not cheap! We spent $100 and we did not even get desert or coffee."

  • "Food was excellent....Service was a little slow as the outside dining was full but all if all a wonderful and enjoyable dinner. Can't wait to go back as the food is always good."

  • "We have been visiting Charlotte annually for the past 20 years and Toscana is always on our list. Lively ambience with consistently good food and an excellent wine list. The receptionist is cool ( not a warm welcome) and the service although impeccable can be aloof. The restaurant is always full."

  • "Toscana is my favorite Charlotte Restaurant, so my expectations are high. The food is awesome and did not disappoint. We had the Veal Chop and the Halibut. The wine was also great which was recommended by the manager. We ended the night with Tiramisu which was very nice. The service was not quite up to our expectations, however, still very good. We went on a warm Saturday night in March at about 8 pm. There had the outside area open which increases the number of tables over 50%. The staff and kitchen seemed understaffed, and timing was not perfect. The manager spent more time with us than our waiter. Again, did not distract too much as the setting is nice, the food great, and we will return."

  • "I really enjoy the food at Toscana Ristorante Italiano. This was my second time there but I will admit my first time was much more enjoyable. The server we had last summer was amazing. Very friendly, outgoing and eager for us to love the place (in a good way). When I couldn't decide what to get, she gave me her opinion but also brought us a small sample of the other item so that we would have the opportunity to taste it. AT NO COST!!!. The server we had this time was courteous and professional but that was it. He just did his job and didn't go out of his way to chat or be warm. Food was great, service was moderate."

  • "Toscana is our favorite restaurant...always full of life, quality food, great selection and outstanding service. Go-to restaurant for special occasions, treating out of town guests or whenever you want a great meal."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "The grilled octopus was fantastic. Would like less salt in the angel hair pasta with clam sauce. Panicotta for dessert was perfect. Since the space is small and cozy, the noise was "energetic" and we were there pretty early. Would love to go back for same dishes."

  • "Toscana is a special occasion place. The food is superb every time. But the service during my last visit ruined the ambience you would expect in such a high caliber restaurant."

  • "Italian cuisine is my favorite and this was the best Italian meal I've had in some time. The food and service were excellent, and I found a hard-to-find favorite Italian wine on the list. My wife and I had a great evening, We'll be back."

  • "We were running late and though the restaurant was half empty the hostess said they had given away our table. We had to ask for the owner and then the maitre'd came over said he'd set us. The food came out cold since they must have had 3 of the plates ready and were waiting for the fourth. They did come take the food back and only did they remake 2 of the 3 plates. The third one came back with where half of the food that had been cut was returned. If it hadn't been for restaurant week we probably would have protested the bill. Not a very happy experience."

  • "I was part of a party of three which arrived to a 6:30 reservation. The restaurant is small and was already 75% occupied. The atmosphere is good, partly due to its size. The food was good. Service was appropriate. Could have perhaps used some overview of the specials that were listed but none was offered. The noise level became uncomfortable as the hour approached 8:00 which prompted our departure. There's very little sonic padding in the place - mostly ceramic, glass, and metal. Overall, I would recommend, particularly if you like a lively atmosphere."

  • "You just can't beat Toscana! It always has Phenomenal Food, Wine & Service. My Wife and I don't get out as much as we used to since we had a child, but when we do we always have dinner here. We just love it & its perfect for our date nights."

  • "Another night at Toscana with some friends that were first timers and had a great time and service was Excellent. the entire staff from the front till you sit and eat are always a pleasure and professional .the chef was nice to make a mushroom risotto which was delicious and a side of grilled asparagus . Other dishes included risotto with scallops,Mare and Bruschetta as the appetizer. Great time with with groups and great for date nights . Before I forget save room for desserts hint Tiramisu is the best in Charlotte I think ."

    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Quaint restaurant with good energy. Great location too. The food was pricey for the portion size. We were very surprised that the Chicken Parmesan didn't include pasta. All side items are ala carte and small. The waitress was "rough around the edges" - she didn't seem to fit with the upscale experience. We would give it another try although now we know what to expect."

  • "the place was very loud, and the tables were very close together. I had the special and it had a very strong fish taste and very salty. My husband had the sea bass and it was OK. I had been there before, but ate outside and had a simple pasta dish. I would not return because I felt for the money we spent we did not have a great meal. Service was adequate."

  • "Nice established place with good food. I will return for lunch, but at recent Saturday dinner it was hard to hear a thing. Six of us were at a center table. ( I requested quiet table and a booth might be a bit quieter but maybe not suitable for 6) Lobster risotto was good, not excellent. Bean dip with bread always a great complimentary appetizer."

  • "I took my husband to Toscana for his birthday as it is a favorite of ours. Not only was the food exceptional, a special bottle of wine they recommended (that was not on the menu) was superb. When they learned it was my husband's birthday, they went out of the way to make it special. First, they presented us with 2 complimentary glasses of prosecco and then surprised us with a tasty appetizer to split. A fabulous evening thanks to a great staff and a talented chef."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "If you want food the way it is really prepared in Italy this is your place. They don't try to reinvent the food or put their spin on a recipe. They prepare classic Italian dishes perfectly. The Osso Bucu (sp?) and the mushroom pasta were both terrific. The service is old world without being over the top. Really well done!"
