Diner Reviews
  • "Good food for a reasonable price. The service has always been very good and the food as good as one would expect even comparing those in the North end."

  • "When we first arrived, the waitress came over quickly with our water. We asked for a few minutes to look over the menu. Then we waited and waited for about 15 minutes. Finally, we flagged down somebody to get our waitress. She took our order and we were told the bread was in the oven & they will bring it out as soon as it was ready. About 10 min. later, the bread arrived, cold. I had send my meal back because I asked for the veal picatta, but was given chicken. There was a large party in the room we were in. They were having a grand boisterous time. We have been to Toscana a couple of times before and we always had great food and great service. Definitely an off night for them all around."

  • "Had the pleasure of dining there Friday night. The food was delicious, delicious. Chilean Sea Bass was outstanding and the veal was extremely tender and plentiful. Will definitely return. Ended the night with fantastic entertainment. Great night out and very reasonable."

  • "My husband and I love trying new things, but this won't be happening again. The noise level was incredible, and I actually left there with a headache. Our waiter was very nice, but we couldn't understand him with his deep accent and noise level. Our food was nothing exceptional. We were very disappointed. If you decide to go to this restaurant, try to get a table in the bar area, it was much quieter!"

  • "We love this restaurant so much it's the place we return to time after time. We have tried other restaurants but nothing so far has come close to Toscana's. It is easy to get to, the food is always fresh, and the service is always friendly."

  • "This is a North End resturant in Peabody. Skip the drive, and get the same great food as if you were on Hanover St. The service might even be better than the North End. Pizza is Very good as well!!!! Low cost bar menu and great drinks.....I would say Toscana's is a must try!!!!!!"

  • "Had a drink at the Bar--nice & friendly staff --female bar tender -very personable --- Waiter- middle age man/ very hard to understanding him / not friendly at all / one meal was sent back and taken off the bill-it was the Carbonara --very oily--pile of oil just sitting in the bowl- meals were basic / veal parm -basic-chicken parm-basic . Restaurant was very highly recommended --not impressed for the price ----------homemade fusilli--not sure that is true ? "

  • "Went to Toscana's on a whim. Parking was tough if you did not want to valet park, and the waiting area is real small. Our wait was about 1/2 hour after our reservations which was not so bad but what would of made it better is if we could of got to the bar which was crowded. We waited about another 1/2 hour before anyone acknowledged us and it happened to be I think the manager who took our drink order. (Still waiting for waitress and bread) they said the kitchen was backed up and it was going to be a little slow while they catch up! Now that is not my problem and when you go out to a restaurant you expect timely service. Food was good and it's worth a try, I would go back again!"

  • "the calamari appetizer is incredible- perfectly cooked- not chewy! the pork chop was a generous serving, salmon dish was delish. seafood tortellini was a small portion for the price- better choice for a smaller appetite. "

  • "Best fried calamari I have had. Delicious artichoke appetizer, wanted more. "

  • "Service was marginal at best. Waiter not very attentive. Often we sat with empty drinks for 10-15 minutes. Noise... very loud in the entire restaurant."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The beefsteak entree was good. My ladies eggplant was decidedly average. The kemp cello martini was as advertised. Limited citron vodka choices which would limit my interest to return. All in all, it was average "

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed the bar atmosphere. Very friendly, fun, and the bartenders were very engaging. Made the experience very enjoyable. Oh yeah and the food was really good too. Can't wait to come back."

  • "Very noisy and asked for table in other room. Told that all were reserved. Many still unused when we left. Charged for items offered by waiter that were not identified as upcharge. Charged for premium wine when ordered house. Waiter did not tell us what specials were. Desserts seemed to be commercial offering ... not great. Would not go again. Entrees were actually quite good."

  • "We had read many of the reviews posted via OPEN TABLE and while almost all were either 4 or 5 stars, we were concerned to see a few low ratings. That being said, our first time at Toscana's was very enjoyable. Our server, AJ, went out of his way to accommodate our every need. The food was great! I ordered the pasta Bolognese which was done al dente- PERFECT!! My wife enjoyed the Salmon entree. The wine list was the only negative. I would grade it at B-. I started with a NZ sauvignon blanc which was underwhelming. I then asked AJ to suggest a pairing for my entree. His pinot noir choice wasn't satisfactory, but I bit the bullet. We were too full for dessert. All in all, not a bad first time at Toscana's "

Reservations are suggested on weekends. Food and service are great and always consistent. The specials are never a disappointment."

  • "4 of us went to Toscana's for my Bday get together and everything was delicious. The wine (chardonnay and Pinot Grigeo) were fantastic. We had the bruscetta app with 2 of us ordering Chicken Saltimbocca and the others got Veal Saltimbocca and Braised Haddock .... so good! I would definately go back again!"

  • "Toscana's consistently serves up a delicious meal and a great dining experience. I brought my 85 year old mother and my 27 year old son and we had one terrific meal. The food, the wine, and the energy in the restaurant on a Friday night all combined to produce a delightful evening. The calamari and the veal are as good as any place I've found from Boston to San Francisco. The staff was appropriately attentive - the only way the meal could have been improved was if I had a larger stomach. Toscana's can be counted on for great food at a very reasonable price."

  • "This is a great dining experience. Food was outstanding. The Service was even better. We have been a couple times and have always left making plans to go back and try our next meal. This time it was a group of 6. Last time 10. Food always comes out all together and everyone gave it a thumbs up. The drinks are great, the bar tender Teresa was GREAT!!! I would 100% say If you have not been yet, Get here soon!"

  • "Went there with my mother and husband at the recommendation of a friend. We made a reservation for 5:45pm and were seated promptly. Our waitress was very attentive. We ordered salads with our meals which were served within minutes. They were very good. During this time the restaurant started to fill up. We were seated next to the fireplace. Shortly before our meals arrived the noise level in the room had elevated to an unbearable level. It was awful. Couldn't hear each other at our own table. This continued throughout our dinner. Now on to the meals..... Veal Parm - large piece, but it was dry with a dollop of what tasted like tomato paste. Fusilli Florentine - soggy, too much sauce. Pasta in Vodka sauce - had an awful taste."

  • "Met my girlfriends for lunch. It wes our first time at the restaurant. I had the veal marsala and my friends both had the eggplant parm. The entrees were all delicious. For dessert , I had the chocolate torte and my friends had the lemon cake. They commented that their dessert, recommended by our wonderful waitress, was light and delightful. My chocolate torte was lighter than what you'd usually get in other restaurants which was just the way I liked it. Definitely will go back."

  • "WONDERFUL meal, Fantastic service (Thank you Christine!). The owners are on site and check in at every table - very nice! We especially enjoyed the little things - someone constantly around with water, great wine/beer list, friendly atmosphere - everyone seemed happy to work here. And the food! WOW!!!! Fantastic. We ordered the shirmp brushetta and there was more shirmp then bread. Our meals were huge - enough food for lunch the next day. WE WILL BE BACK! LOVED IT!"

  • "I had only gotten food delivered from Toscana's so I was surprised to see where it was located. The parking lot is kind of dark and deserted. Probably ok in the daytime, but I'd rather not go at night. The inside was perfectly nice, however. The food was good, not fantastic, but good. The waiter was great. Friendly, very attentive."

  • "This was my first time dining at Toscana's. We had 6 in our party and a 6:15 reservation. Seated in a banquet room with 2 other large tables. Music was blaring a mix between italian opera, national anthem and show tunes. Bizarre! We had to find our server to take our order finally at 7:15. Food came out at 7:50. One dinner was missing the melted mozzarella on the top of the dish. The total dining experience took 2 hours for ordering just entrees. No apps, no salads or desserts. Food was just ok. Not a great experience. Would not go back."
