    It is overwhelmingly necessary to make a reservation. A party of 3 at 5:45 on a Saturday night were given a wait time of approximately and hour and a half. The service was great and the food was even better. Definitely a good place for a romantic evening or just a nice night out. Recommended too all for sure!

    We had to wait little bit even though we had a reservation, but the wait was worth it. From the time we sat down till the end of our meal, our waitress was the best. She explained everything and had great patience with us as we could make our mind up. She knew her stuff. Kudos!! I just wish I could remember her name. We sat at the kitchen bar. Now to the food, the best Italian food I have had in a long time, so fresh and yummy.

    The week the Burlington location opened, I went in for a takeout sandwich. The eggplant was great the bread was so average I tossed it. The chips were pretty good. On Saturday we went for dinner (again to the Burlington location). Bread was ok, oil was fine. You could tell the wait staff was still trying to figure out what they were doing, what the table numbers were, who was going to do what etc. Caesar salad was very good. My mother hand a veal pasta dish. Half was good, the other half was all fat and gristle. My gnocchi was pretty good. Truffle fries were average...the truffle and toppings were good, fries were so so. They need to step it up to compete with other great restaurants in Burlington.

    We ordered the calamari appetizer, filet entree, cod entree, and a creme brulee. The dinner was absolutely delicious. Service was so-so, we were left hanging on several occasions and didn't place our dinner until after our appetizer was done. Also, I accidentally left my left over cod there and no one came running after us which was too bad. Otherwise, food has always been on point here!

    Enjoyed our dinner. Food ,wine, service, atmosphere are fine. Disappointed, however, to have spent that much money while sitting adjacent to others not dressed appropriately for such a fine establishment. Tuscan kitchen should identify to whom they want to market.too much an Applebee's crowd atmosphere.

    I stopped coming here because there's no way I will wait for two hours for table. So was very happy when I went on Open Table and found Tuscan Kitchen. Four of us went on a Saturday night. The food was good, so was the service. We sat upstairs, which was a little cold, but, despite the noise, (and not the place to go for a romantic dinner), we had a good time. We will definitely go again.

    As its name suggests this is the place for a great selection of well made Tuscan style cooking. Home made pasta and slow roasted meats. Everything is good. Service and ambience is good. The only negative is the noise level. It is a bit high. This place is very popular so make a reservation.

    Our server forgot our wine, she took a very long time to wait on us. It was a busy Saturday night, but appeared not to have enough staff as she was NOT attentive to us. We asked for a refill on water & it never came. The first time she poured our water glasses. She constantly rubbed the spout on the water pitcher w/her fingers ECH! Our special birthday cake arrived with chocolate after I special ordered a cake with NO chocolate as my guest is ALLERGIC. Last time!

    My wife and I frequent Tuscan Kitchen and I would say in general we love it. About every 5th trip, they seem to lay an egg with either food or service. It was food in this instance. I had the Steak Florentine with the huge tomahawk. Unfortunately, there was so much rosemary on the steak it tasted sort of like a pine cone. Underneath all that rosemary the steak was great, but this was either an error or the menu needs a little work. Most people don't like rosemary, nevermind this much of it. You would have to LOVE it for this to be palatable. My wife had the scampi. The shrimp didn't taste right - I'm not sure why but they were just off. Everything else was good. We'll come back, but I don't think I'll spend $44 on the ribeye again.

    Have always loved this place and coveted every meal. I feel slipping in quality and certainly in portion size. Our appetizer came out cold, my pasta dish way over salted and though I ordered a full portion (so I could have lunch the next day), it seemed more like the half portion that I've ordered in the past.

    Found the restaurant on my phone navigation system on our way home from "leaf peeping". It said $$ for price but its more like $$$$. ( Dinner for the 2 of us was $200). Other than the sticker shock, the food was outstanding. Its a little noisy and that led to some confusion with our orders (water versus tonic water and beet salad versus caprese salad) but everything was corrected quickly and effortlessly. We would definitely go again but probably for a special occasion and not just a stop on the way home from a long drive!!

    My second visit here. This time we were upstairs, which is a bit quieter than downstairs. The food never disappoints. Had the calamari for appetizers and the salmon for dinner. Both were excellent. One in my party had the eggplant tower, which looked amazing and he said it tasted the same. Tuscan Kitchen now has a location in Burlington, MA so I'll be glad to have one closer to me.

    We have enjoyed several meals here, including my husband's milestone birthday party last year. The staff are always friendly, courteous and attentive. We usually opt for the pasta dishes, and on one occasion when we couldn't decide, had the option to order a couple of small plates which is a nice way to resolve the dilemma of what to have! Tuscan Kitchen is one of our favorite places to dine, whether it's a spur of the moment dinner for two, enjoying a dinner with friends or a celebration with family/friends. Can't wait to go back!

    We went for our 5th wedding anniversary. Glad we made reservations. Dined downstairs near the fireplace. Too loud to be able to have a nice dinner. Table was not set correctly. Server spilled honey on the table and my wife's arm. The loud music didn't fit the restaurant theme. College football on the TVs also didn't fit the theme. Food quality and presentation was very good. With the exception of the truffle honey running off the sampler cutting board. Falls short of expectation and hype. Suggestion for you if it's your first time going. Many dishes are available as half size. Try two per person and now you can get a taste of 4 different dishes. That makes finding a favorite that much easier.

    The food was terrific - though I caution against having an appetizer and salad and a main dish! The portions are TOO BIG for all three [smile]. The salads tend to have a bit too much dressing so be sure to tell your server to go "easy" on the salad dressings. Loved the ravioli [mushroom and lobster] - both were terrific. Beware the wine by the glass - $10 for a glass of chianti is WAY overpriced.

    Tuscan Kitchen is a large building and you might think it is a run of mill Italian place (Olive Garden, Carraba's) but it is much better than both of them for people that know Chicken Parmesan and Caesar Salad aren't even real Italian fare. The quality of food and ambiance is comparable to a fine Italian restaurant that you would see in Boston or New York but it is much bigger and can accommodate more people. The items on the menu are well thought out and never drenched in heavy cheese sauces so they look toward the southern portion of Italy and everything is made in house or at the store next door. That might be the best part: after you eat, take a walk over to the market and buy the ingredients yourself or watch them make the pasta.

    The Tuscan Kitchen is a step above the standard Italian restaurant. The attention to detail, quality of the furnishings, well trained staff, and beautiful architecture all make the Tuscsn a superior dining experience. The menu is innovative, with unexpected dishes and traditional favorites. The wood fired oven is put to good use, with many dishes tasting much more intense cooked in the oven. The pizza is great, the crust gets a smoky, crunchy texture from the oven. The service was good, checking in and anticipating drinks.

    The bread-delicious.Restaurant-beautiful.Oysters- perfect. Calamari-just ok.Cheeses-yum.But not everything blended well. The oil we asked for, never came. Oysters didnt come w/ cocktail sauce & waiting to ask someone was a drag. My fiancé never got the side marinara he ordered w/the calamari. Waiting for entrees-too long of a gap. When we got our entrees they weren't hot, or tasty. My pasta and shrimp-sticky & overcooked. My fiancé looked so disappointed & irritated! When I tried to communicate to the server that this night was special to us, and ask for the menu to select something better, she sent the manager over to harass us and make us really uncomfortable. She's lucky I tipped her as if we spent 100$. We left as soon as we could run.

    I wasn't impressed. I'm a plain jane so it was too fancy food for me. I had shrimp scampi and I didn't like the sause or whatever was on the spaghetti and it was clumped together. I would have preferred just butter. I should of asked for it. But the waitress was wonderful. She explained things if we asked and I heard her telling other people how to order if they didn't understand. Everyone was so friendly. I probably wouldn't go back. The desserts were great and so was the bread. I just didn't care for my meal.
