  • "Always excellent...thoroughly enjoyed our dinners...many interesting choices."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "I met my fiancé there and last night we went back for our one year anniversary. What a great place!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "we had the porterhouse steak for 2 (special order - not on menu). It was pricey, but excellent quality and quantity. Rosemary and thyme flavored with au gratin potatoes and salad. Came in sizzling plate that could extend heating for those wanting additional cooking time. Attentive and courteous service in crowded but relatively quiet atmosphere."

  • "I went here with my family for my birthday and ordered the linguine with clams and it was absolutely delicious. I'm a fan of several restaurants in the area, but we had never been to Toscano Ristorante so we decided to mix things up a bit. And, we loved it! My parents aren't big foodies, but even they said the food was fantastic (they ordered the hazelnut-crusted salmon and the tilapia w/ shrimp). There aren't many windows, so the seating area is a bit dark inside, but it was still a great atmosphere."

  • "The food was not as good as we had on previous occasions. Our server was indifferent..."
    Dined on 6/14/2014

  • "I met my Niece for dinner. I had not seen her in a while and wanted it to be special. This restaurant, its service, the food, and the atmosphere, made that happen. We both loved it but she felt really special! I am so happy I found it and we went. You should go too!"

  • "As we all love to cook, our gang seldom go out for our Dine Arounds. We chose Toscano based on several of the group's prior experiences there, but we were amazed that they could handle our large crowd so easily. And the place was full. The food, from the appetizers served family style for our gang, through the main courses and desserts were all outstanding. And the service was top notch. Kudos to the folks who have made this neighborhood gem such a success. And if you go, you have to try Emma's Meatballs Salad! Everyone says it sound strange when I describe it, but there was a table full of converts on Thursday night."

  • "This was a wonderful find in Bordentown. The food was fantastic and service was perfect. Michelle was a great server and the rest of the staff was attentive as well. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Consistently great food. Tasting menu is an excellent value. There is no need to open the menu because there are many specials every night that are just too good to pass up"
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Food delicious! We could have used a little more attention from our waitress. We were not asked if we would like another drink, or how we enjoyed our food. But we understand sometimes there are a little "off nights". Definitely would go back. "

  • "The atmosphere reminded me of dining in NYC. Great menu."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "What a find!! Picked Toscano Ristorante based on it's location (it was half way between us and our dinner partners) and the reviews on open table. I will definitely return. The food was outstanding. My wife ordered the soft shell crab special. Perfect. On a last minute decision I chose the Chicken Toscano, bring your appetite. The plate was overflowing with chicken and sausage. Our dinner guests both had the salmon which they were very please with. Overall a great choice and a great experience. "

  • "Dining out on a holiday is rare for us; but, this Easter brought the opportunity to visit Toscano's for an afternoon holiday dinner. The experience was absolutely lovely. The bar out front is very cozy although we were promptly shown to our table by Toscano's owner. Service was friendly without being intrusive. There were many holiday specials that the chef was offering...all sounded wonderful...and one of our chosen entrees was from the specials list...a pork tenderloin with a maple influenced sauce...our other entrée was the scallops with risotto...the scallops were sweet and tender and the risotto very flavorful. Tiramisu delightfully ended our dinner. This restaurant is a gem...find it and enjoy a great dining experience!!!"

  • "I went to Toscano's with two of my girlfriends for Bordentown Restaurant Week. The restaurant was crowded when we arrived but never had a problem with the service or the food. Our server was very attentive even though he was quite busy, he made suggestions and was very friendly. The three of us all ordered the same food and we really loved everything we ate. I have been to this restaurant several times for both lunch and dinner and it never fails to produce excellent food. Will definitely be returning."

  • "I still think this is the best place in the Trenton area. This last trip cost me a fortune. Some of the specials are very pricey. My bad I should have asked. Every thing was spectacular!"

  • "The Italian Egg Roll was an international triumph, a diplomatic marriage of ingredients and presentation."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Went to dinner at Toscano's to celebrate a birthday. The food and service were both very good, as was the ambience. The only complaint I would have is that the pricing is a little high. A lot of the dishes were well over $25. Would recommend this place for special occasions and romantic evenings."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "I have been coming to this restaurant for some years now and I have never been disappointed - the food is absolutely fabulous - its all done with precision and presentation of food is also stupendous. Its a bit pricey but I dont mind paying if I know I am getting a good meal and that has always been the case. Keep up the good work Toscano's - :)"

  • "First time at Toscano and what a great find! The food was delicious and portions very generous! The menu is extensive-- lots of choices! They also had quite a few specials. Our server was excellent--so pleasant and knowledgable. She spoke slowly so you could really here everything she told us about a dish or clarified ingredients. We will definitely be back and want to try one of their steaks. They smelled great and come at sizzling from the kitchen."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Wonderful for that special occasion! Presentation and taste were right on spot. Tentative wait staff. If you enjoy calamari the Bacon Dusted Calamari is the best. Steak perfectly aged and prepared. The veal and shrimp bellissimo was just that "Bellissimo'!!! Highly recommend this restaurant!"

  • "Historic Bordentown City presents almost three centuries of American history while offering some of the best dining in New Jersey. Toscano makes any visit there even more special. It's a beautifully appointed restaurant with a knowledgeable and helpful staff. Ingredients are ultra-fresh and are part of a very creative array of nightly specials. From the regular menu, the house-made pastas and sauces are not to be missed. The wine list is not long, but presents some outstanding choices at some affordable prices. For a very special day and evening, take in the special history of this little City and cap it off with a visit to Toscano. You'll be glad you did."

  • "The food is unbeatable and the creativity and presentation is outstanding. To have such a great chef in this area is a blessing. If you don't see something on the menu, just ask and you may be surprised to have a dish made for you. I can't say enough about the food - the best and freshest ingredients make everything delectable. The staff is so friendly and focused on providing great service that you will always be treated like royalty - from the minute you walk in the door. Toscano is an A+, top restaurant that should not be missed."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "I love to dine at Toscano. I have areal problem when a special is double the amount of the usual menu items and they dont tell you or post the price. My friend and I both had the Veal Oso Buca special. After getting the bill and feeling it was more then it should be we noticed our special was 48.99 each Ouch I have never paid that much for Veal Oso Buca even at 5star rated NYC resturants. It might be a while till I go back to Toscano but l'm sure I will one day."

  • "Amazing food prepared with fresh ingredients / this place know what they're doing. Excellent wine list. Staff was amazing. Avoid the back if they have large parties - get's a bit loud. However - nothing else to complain about. GREAT EXPERIENCE - 3 separate times now. Must comment on the EXCELLENT STAFF. Great synergy and unselfishness - water glasses and bread basket always filled. Multiple staff stopped by to see how we were doing - but not to a point were it was annoying. Watched the staff clean and prepare a table - took 9.8 seconds ;-) Kudo's to the management (and of course to the chef's and preparer's - mise en place)."
