Diner Reviews
  • "It was raining, but you make "this" reservation. Why? They truly remember you, Maria, the charm. Our booth is always waiting, and then, even though our bartender/waitress was on vacation we enjoyed the same attention from Ms. Las Vegas, our waitress, who was on her way there. I'm not good at names. Thank you Toscana!! The Earlton's"

  • "Had been to Toscana several times and thought it one of the best in the city. Saturday night we invited out neighbors who had never been there to join us and we were disappointed. The ravioli was bland and not quite hot and the mare seafood was overcooked. Our waiter who we had not been served by in the past was more interested in one of the lady diners than us. Our theory is that since it was the Fourth weekend we got the "B" team instead of the regulars. We will give Toscana one more chance because it was so good in the past."

  • "From start to finish - fantastic! First had a drink at the bar. Once seated for dinner, we enjoyed the warm bread with beans and Toscana salads. Then had the halibut special, salmon, ravioli, and buttera; all fresh and made from scratch - delicious! Whether you eat inside or out, just a great experience and ambience! One of our favorite places in Charlotte!"

  • "Judy and I went there Saturday night to celebrate our 39th anniversary. It is a "go to" restaurant for special occasions. Food is excellent. Only drawback - lot's of large groups in the restaurant that night. Noise level was high..... Next time maybe a quieter table? Excellent meal!!"

  • "We always enjoy Toscana - the food, service, and personal treatment. Whether dinning inside or outside the accommodations are excellent. The veal dishes are something special. We can hardly wait to get back."

  • "I went here for a work dinner, nice setting, drinks and wine were great. I ordered a pasta dish that was on their specials menu, the sauce and pasta were really good, but the steak that was in the pasta was a little tough. Overall the dinner was pretty good, but the steak could have been a little more tender."

  • "The Salmon was perfect and the Carpaccio done nicely. Very nice wine list. It was a bit hot to sit outside, but it has a lovely ourdoor patio as well."

  • "Usually a great dining experience - but NOT on a Saturday night. They are obviously trying to maximize profits at the expense of food quality and ambience. Their lovely courtyard was packed with tables on a Saturday night - trying to cram in as many people as possible- it ruined the experience of eating outdoors there. Our waitress was very inattentive and there were very long lapses between courses. She didn't ask how I wanted my salmon cooked, my salad was tasteless. By the end of the evening we left feeling very annoyed. This is too bad as we've always counted on Augusto's restaurants for great food."

  • "Toscana is by far the most authentic Italian food. Being from up north and Italian, this is a true find! The outside seating is my favorite, but inside is great too."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We tend to forget about Toscana and are always pleased to find it again. Longstanding gem close to the Marriott in Southpark. Excellent food, professional service. Pasta with beef ragout was outstanding, meat tender & flavorful. Grilled branzino delicate & flavorful. Cannolis were the perfect sweet culmination. The night we dined the place was jammed with businessmen enjoying the quality food. The perfectly prepared martini took the edge off the noise."

  • "Found the wait staff to be excellent and attentive. We gathered around the bar for drinks then were seated in a cozy corner which made socializing great for business. Our 6:00 pm reservation was fast filling up around 7:30ish and included outside seating. Nice we dined earlier. We were hesitant about booking for our first visit to this restaurant. After reading some previous negative reviews this restaurant was booked. Found no problem with the service. The establishment was tucked away in the back of the mini-shops - no clear visibility. Quaint. The group determined it would be a place to return for dinner. A little high priced would be the only draw back if you were a couple on a set income."

  • "We had a wonderful meal! The food here is just wonderful. Excellent service complements the outstanding Italian cuisine. I highly recommend Toscana for anyone looking for a delightful dinner in Charlotte."

  • "Toscana has been one of our favorite dining spots, but something seems to have changed in the last 6 months. For the last 3 dining experiences, we felt like we didn't have a designated server. There seemed to be a lot of servers standing around but no one owning our table. In one case, my wife's meal was not prepared according to the way it was ordered, so went back to the kitchen. We both ended up eating alone. No one acknowledged this or made any attempt to make the situation (or the bill) better. If the restaurant is using a new staffing system, I suggest it be scrutinized before other loyal diners make the same decision we have. The great food and lovely setting is just not worth enduring the poor service."

  • "This restaurant has a nice outdoor area. The food was good, but nothing spectacular. Our server seemed very annoyed and did not want to be bothered the entire evening. There are enough good restaurants in the area, that we will not return due to the poor service. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The Mare pasta was phenomenal. I was kicking myself that I had never ordered it before. The wine recommended when we asked for a special bottle was excellent. Service was also great even though they had a party of 30 and some other tables on the patio as well. Lovely evening."

  • "This restaurant is a favorite of ours but we were disappointed this visit. My husband's pasta was excellent. But my mahi-mahi was a bit overdone and was served with a very large portion of broccoli. Might have benefitted from a different, or additional, side. Service was slower than usual this visit also."

  • "As always the food was amazing and the venue, especially sitting out by the fountain, was the place to be on Friday night. Ever the charming host, Augusto goes the extra mile to make sure his guests feel at home and are comfortable. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to spend an evening feeling special. You also never know what famous celebrity you might see! Judy Hovis"

  • "Toscana is our all time favorite Charlotte restaurant. Dinner selections are impressive & highlight outstanding specials. Ambience is lively, people are friendly, accommodating & wine list is very good. Food is prepared perfectly, stylistically & with mouth watering goodness. A special restaurant for a romantic night & for entertaining guests."

  • "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."

    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "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."
