Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed our dinner with excellent service, garlic bread, olives and tomato free appetizer followed by excellent wine list with many by the glass available. Various sauces were yummy as were the ravioli and other pasta. Our attentive waiter from Florence explained all and gave good suggestions."

  • "We went to this restaurant after reading other reviewers. The reviews were good and deservedly so. The food was very good and the service was okay. A larger table had his attention but it was still okay. restaurant was not overpriced although not a level 2. But I would definitely have used a price level 3. The parking was a bit hard to find but once you know where it is it's okay."

  • "Piano player was great as was ambiance outside. Menu sounded and looked delicious but lacked flavor. Need to make food more tasty. We eat out 5 to 6 times a week. Place was beautiful but food was boring. "

  • "What a find! Great service--our waiter recited 12 specials beyond the menu--each sounding better than the last plus he was attentive. This is a gem of a restaurant when it comes to delicious food and good service. If the drivers cruising Las Olas would turn down their obnoxious stereo systems and motorcyclists stop showing off and calm down a bit, it would have been perfect. This is a regular stop for people living in the neighborhood!"

  • "Our waiter was superb. Great reccomendations, quick service. Food was very good, all 6 of us loved our entrees. Best carpaccio I've had in some time and the lamb with truffle sauce.... Awesome Will come back. Heads up, pricey. "

  • "Great service, delicious food, nice apnesphere. Would definetly visit again. Both my parents couldn't stop raving about the wonderful afternoon they had at Tuscan Grill. The mothers day special menu was perfect. The reason for the 4 and not 5 stars is they added gratuity to the our check. It makes sense for large parties but, for 3 people I don't think it's necessary. It kind of put a damper on the great lunch we had. Keeping that in mind for the next visit."

  • "Ate there last week, started with an appetizer that the waiter said was to die for. Not what I wanted. The bread and olive plate were outstanding. I had Pasta with a Bolognese was OK my wife's is better though. My wife had the Pasta Carbanora the sauce was to die for very rich with the hint of the Panchetta was perfect. My wife had dessert and we both had a double espresso.Overall I think the food was good but overpriced. The service was very good."

  • "I thought the Tuscan grill looked like a great Italian restaurant. Unfortunately, it was overpriced for what we got. The shrimp scampi claimed to have "Jumbo" shrimp but for $35, all was 5 medium sized shrimp with some linguini. Disappointed"

  • "This restaurant was not worth it. From the point you enter the restaurant, your are being played. The service is all about trying to extract money from your pocket. The maître de purposely moves you to the bar to have cocktails even though there are open tables. The cocktails are way overpriced and poor to say the least, and you need to settle up at the bar, more to do with getting more of a tip because you can't transfer your tab. Throughout the table service you are being up sold. Eventually after a mediocre meal, you get the bill and are subjected to a set 18% service charge without being asked. Definitely won't go back!!!"

  • "My wife and I enjoyed a great dinner at Tuscan Grill Friday evening. Food was excellent, (pasta e fragioli soup, rigatoni bolognese, veal parmigiana, affogato). Great wine list. Service was great from the initial greeting from the hostess, to the waiter and wine steward. Great ambiance. This was our first time here. We will be back!"

  • "My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner in a most lovely atmosphere.The weather being exceptional, thus conducive to dining outdoors. We had an exceptional waiter and his service and personality enhanced our dining pleasure. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Food was good but certainly not great. Waiter was a bit too friendly and after stating the many "specials" returned to take the order. He voiced his displeasures that no specials were ordered. Not so friendly thereafter. I was aware that some people claimed that the "specials" also contained a special high price so I stayed away from them. Restaurant was very small but had outside dinning which was fine. I was expecting something very good to great based on other reviews but it may in fact be great Italian food for the area."

  • "This excellent Las Olas spot was suitably busy but the waiter was attentive and the food was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the Branzino. The menu was shortened for the holiday but the presence of my partner's favorite pasta dish made up for it. And, the wine list was, as usual, superior."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Service was very slow and the waiter was very inattentive. Seemed we were putting him out every time we asked a question or simply to get the check. The food was very good, and maybe it was just a bad day- would try it again."

  • "In area for 4 days and was told to go to Los Olas Blvd for great shopping and dining at night. My husband and I walked up and down the street on both sides to window shop and preview restaurants. At recommendation on YELP but also overall ambiance and outdoor seating, we chose Tuscan Grill and have been talking about it since. Have recommended it to several locals and others at hotel! The italian meal was suburb and Urie on the piano was absolutely outstanding! Highly recommend!"

  • "The octopus is really good take care, the web site is not updated and some prommotions on menu does not exist. Also, they have a bunch of plates outside the menu and you can stay suprise about the cost."

  • "Even though it was a coooool evening the patio was warm and cozy. Food was beautifully presented and tasted great. The seafood specials were excellently prepared. Our waiter knew we had theater plans so he was careful to get us out in time without making us feel rushed. Would highly recommend Tuscan Grill."

  • "My husband and I chose the Tuscan Grill for New Year's Eve because we wanted to eat at a good restaurant and then walk to the city festivities being held in a park about a mile away. The food exceeded our expectations. I figured from the reviews it would be comparable to some very good Italian restaurants I've eaten at in New York City and other large cities, but it was at a level of excellence that surprised me. The ingredients were fresh and the seasoning was subtle and delicious. We sat in the outdoor covered patio area. A fine pianist played instrumental music which added to the festive atmosphere. The prices were raised from the usual because it was New Year's Eve, but we felt like it was worth it! If we lived there we'd go back!"

  • "Atmosphere was cozy and romantic! Service was very good...not too fast or slow. Food was way too overpriced and just okay. I would go again to try something else on the menu, but found the linguine and clams on the dull side, clams had an odd taste. For a big amount of pasta and very tiny clams, it was very overpriced!!!!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The food was fantastic. On the other hand, we had to wait about 20 past our reservation time. The biggest drawback, however, came when we got our check. We ordered a veal chop special expecting it to cost about what the most expensive items on the regular menu cost (about $35) but we were very surprised and disappointed to be charged $59 for the veal chop."

  • "Restaurant been around for years and is an excellent local restaurant. Has a great patio in addition to the restaurant. Very good but not outstanding food and good service (note the automatic 18% tip added). Fish dishes are excellent. Usually have numerous specials."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "We were very pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was...Haven't been here since it was Rino's (which we did not like at all). Everything, from the calamari and grilled octopus appetizers through my husband's ricotta cheesecake was excellent. So happy to have a wonderful Italian restaurant in the neighborhood!"

  • "We were vacationing in Fort Lauderdale and went to Tuscan Grille. Everything from the food, service and ambiance could not have been better. David, the manager, is an outstanding host and made you welcome. It was a wonderful experience and will be sending family and friends who will be visiting this winter."

  • "We needed a restaurant that was easy for a group of us to meet at.... found a gem in the Tuscan Grill. Waiter was attentive and helpful. Knew his wines as well as his food! We ordered the grilled octopus and calamari as an appetizer.. both were delicious. We were not rushed between courses which these days seems unusual in a restaurant. We each had something different for our main courses, and each one was thrilled. Even the "Sally" in our group. Look forward to going back."

  • "Right on Las Olas - but outside seating not for us on a really windy day! Very attentive service from the server Roberto and the manager, who spoke with us at length tableside and at the desk - clearly, everyone here want to make the diners happy. Started with one of te BEST burrata and prosciutto salads EVER. I had great tortetllini, and two companions had veal - of the two slices each, one was more tender than the other. Very good and generous salads - everyone waned to share (they just wanted a bite of my *burrata*!) We will eat here again when we return to Ft. Lauderdale."
