  • "Food, service and all was good! Thursday nights the Commons has music outside which added to the very nice evening meal!"

  • "Let me start by saying that I was raised in an Italian American household, so I might be a bit more discerning than others when dining Italian. I started off with a mozzarella caprese appetizer, which was quite good. Following, I had the gnocchi. While palatable, for certain, it was slightly bland. I'm not a huge fan of an abundant amount of sauce, but there was very little presented with the dish. Also, the pasta itself came to life only after asking for Parmesan cheese to accentuate it. After growing up in a city where amazing $5 spaghetti dinners at the local curch were the norm, paying nearly $20 for average pasta is a bit of a let down. Spice...add a little and your meal will come to life."

  • "We experienced a lovely dinner with friends while enjoying outdoor dining during a warm summer eve. Service was a bit slow but the restaurant was quite busy. This is the second time we have here...the first time was not a good experience....service and food not up to par so I'm glad we gave it a second chance. I had a veal chop and had part of it bagged up to take home and then I forgot to take the bag. I was back in 10 minutes but they had already thrown it in the garbage. They could have saved it for at least 20 minutes before tossing it. I was looking forward to finishing it the next day....as it was quite expensive! Our server was looking for it but the manager could care less."

  • "Came for an easy casual dinner. At first, the service was acceptable. Unfortunately, it took a REALLY LONG time to get our food; just two entrees. I will say, once our server and management realized our food was talking a long time to arrive, they were apologetic and handled the situation effectively. The food came out hot, tasted good, but wasn't anything stellar. We'll give it another try, but not rushing back."

  • "The food was good - we took recommendations from the waiter. They forgot my dinner salad and it took 10 or 15 min to get it to the table! We were sat in a crowded area in the center while there were open seats in less crowded area. The octopus appetizer was excellent. The service was fair to good, just a bit slow."

  • "Toscanova was a good dining experience. The only thing we didn't care for was the Gnocchi, too dry. Otherwise the service was great and so were the short ribs!"

  • "My experience at Toscanova was positively outstanding. we arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and the table was ready. Service was fantastic. My server spotted me looking around the patio (I was just looking around) and he promptly ran over to our table to see if I needed anything. Bread and olive oil that is so good it's probably cold press is included, and they don't charge for bread, so go nuts on it. We got the salmon carpaccio, cold cuts (prosccuito, sopressata, and coppa,) mixed mushroom pizza, linguini with clams and zucchini, chocolate souffle, and late's. The food is simple, and delicious. If you're looking for avante garde stuff, go somewhere else. If you want perfect, simple, soulful Italian food, come here."

  • "Service was awful. When we mentioned something about the delay, the waiter callously said "We're busy." How embarrassing, as we were there for a business lunch meeting. Most likely we will not return."

  • "My friend and I met here for lunch for our birthdays. We enjoyed our omelet and salad and found the service attentive. They even brought us a nice complimentary tiramasu for bday dessert."

  • "Really wonderful pasta dishes. But it's extra $ for anchovies on a Ceasar Salad? Really? What's the definition of a Ceasar Salad? Pretty basic really. So what if most Angelinos don't care for them, they should be there. (My 2¢) "

  • "Nice family-style casual italian venue. Waiter had authentic Italian accent. Great food, reasonable prices, not too fancy. Plenty of outside seating, weather permitting. Typically loud lively experience."

  • "I asked for the sea bass and instead was given the white fish. I told the waiter that I know what sea bass tastes like and what I had was definitely not sea bass. He kept insisting it was. The fish was over cooked. It took forever to get our food. The waiter was nice and polite but not very attentive despite the fact that they were not that busy."

  • "The service here was positively horrid. Truly the worst I have ever experienced. Food was mediocre and portions were small. Obviously this is the perfect place to dine if you enjoy all of the that. "

  • "Fantastic dinner with the family! Every item we ordered was seasoned perfectly and delivered piping hot (usually a pet peeve of my picky Mom). The service was impeccable as well, very attentive and friendly. We love this restaurant that rivals any on the West side. "

  • "I've been here a few times, and I was on the fence the first couple of times, but Calabasas is restaurant challenged, so I didn't have many options. Toscanova improves on food and service everytime I go! It's now one of my favorite places. "

  • "Pleasant Friday night dining experience. Lauren was our server, and she was delightful. (If you get a server named Christian, ask for someone else - he's haughty and condescending.) We shared the turbo-fish - nicely prepared with asparagus and grilled perfectly. My only criticism was that when we were informed of the specials (which do not appear on the menu), there was no mention made of the price. I was a bit surprised to find that the tab (for the fish ALONE) was $80 - yes, EIGHTY dollars for a fish! Total tab with two starters, one shared entrée, one shared dessert (crème brulee) and two glasses of wine was $142 (remember, that fish was $80!) plus $25 tip made a total bill of $167 for the two of us.

  • "I love the activity of Hollywood, West Hollywood, mid-city, Santa Monica, and West L.A. And we don't get much of that in the valley. So this pretty and hip place has been a welcome addition to this pretty sleepy community. Some style, adorable Italian (and some American!) waiters, good food (if a bit pricey), and it's, all in all, a great night out. Most recently, we sat out at the fire pit on yet another glorious SoCal day and munched and sipped for hours. Love this place."

  • "Everything about this restaurant was a 5 star experience. Generally you either get good food OR good service, but that night we got both. Billy our waiter was attentive and friendly. We'll be going back. This was my first experience with Open Table and I have to say, making a reservation was quick and easy and I love the sending of the invitations part!"

  • "Beautiful patio dining in park like setting. Relaxed atmosphere of casual elegance. Food is the best. Steamed salmon was wonderful. Good portions. Wine on the high side for $10. I can buy a bottle of same for $8. Cost should be less at lunchtime."

  • "I met a friend for lunch. She works near the commons. We were seated outside and it was a lovely afternoon. She had the salmon salad, which says in her favorite. I had the Ceasar salad with ad chicken for $4. The salad was a little under-dressed and I had to ask for anchovy, so they were brought on the side. The chicken was nicely roasted and sliced and remained tender. They did charge me $3 for a few anchovy, which I thought was kind of petty, but whatever. I guess they're hard up because it was kind of slow in there. The place across the way was very busy and I guess they are feeling the pinch. Our waiter, cannot remember his name, was very professional and very calm. Nice guy. Thanks! s"

  • "The food was good and the waiter very nice.The layout in the restaurant was not attractive to me. It appears to be a large room with many tables (much like a cafeteria, although I know it doesn't equate). The noise level is also akin to a cafeteria. Luckily we were seated in the rear room where there were only 4 other tables. The noise level was much quieter in there, so thank you to the management for understanding my online request of a "cozy" booth to mean I wanted a cozy/quiet dining experience."
