Food is all fresh made and everything is perfect. Great Happy Hour specials, too.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and ServiceGreat Food and Service are one of the many reasons I frequent this restaurant. The veal chop is superb as well as many chicken, steak, seafood, and pasta dishes. Toscana West is truly a great place to eat, celebrate any special occasion, and just to have fun and have a couple of drinks at the bar. All overall, a great place.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Authentic Italian CuisineI throughly enjoyed my experience at Tuscana West. The food was amazing, the service was delightful and the decor is beautiful. Our food was piping hot. We took pictures and you could actually see the steam rising from the plates.There is something for everyone on the menu including amazing vegetarians (if you still eat fish/seafood) and perhaps options for even the pickiest eaters. Great location for a first date, or quiet drinks at the bar during the week. Located conveniently close to the Mc Phereson Square Metro. Vast variety of selections on the wine list. Be sure to try the almond cake. Its life changing! If you want to propose to your girlfriend, take her here!!!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Italian FoodI had never been to Tuscana West and understand it has been in business for over 20 years. I can understand why. It is a lovely restaurant with great food and wonderful, old-world service. Noise levels were moderate, so pleasant compared to many restaurants. Next time I will try the pasta, always the true test of good Italian food.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLast minute selection fromLast minute selection from the reviews on Open Table.

Service was very good , with the order taken quickly and served hot. The wait staff constantly checked on us to see if we needed anything during the meal. We would surely return here when we agin visit Washington.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were on vacation in DCWe were on vacation in DC with our 2 kids and found Tuscana West on our way, it was great for all of us, delicious food, very kind staff, great location4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional Service, AwesomeExceptional Service, Awesome Food...We will definitely return4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough we had been hereAlthough we had been here for lunch before, this was our first dinner experience. The personal attention by the staff was tremendous, the selection of food was excellent, and the cuisine delicious. The fried calamari was tender with a great marinara side sauce and the bruschetta appetizer was very tasty. The waiter allowed us to substitute pasta for the risotto on the seafood entrée which was cooked to perfection.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Flavorful!Two collegues and I went for lunch and the food was outstanding. We really enjoyed the choices we made from a great menu. We will definitely return for lunch and maybe dinner.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice dinnerThere appears to be a lot of mixed reviews regarding this restaurant, particularly regarding the service. We almost canceled our reservation but I am glad we didn't. Overall we had a very nice experience. The food was good and the service was excellent and appropriately attentive. Our visit was during the Cherry Blossom Festival week which is a very busy time of the year. Despite this our waiter did a very nice job. We also attended during a Sat opera night. Unlike a previous reviewer we enjoy opera and found this to be a delightful treat. For those that do not I suggest you avoid Sat as the performers certainly make themselves heard. As to the question of whether this restaurant is overpriced my only response is what in DC isn't?4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVisiting from out of town.Visiting from out of town. We had great food, great service, and reasonably priced.
Would go back again on next visit to D.C.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found this near the hotelWe found this near the hotel we stayed at in Washington. I had an excellent seafood ravioli, husband had salmon, daughter had pizza. All very well made. This particular night they also had some opera singers for entertainment. Too cold for outside but a big patio overlooking beautiful park will be wonderful in warm weather. Very good! If we lived in Washington DC would definitely go back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for dinner on a FridayWent for dinner on a Friday after work as my office is nearby and we were going to an 8 pm show at the Kennedy Center. The location being so close to McPherson Square made it easy to get on Metro after dinner to go to the Kennedy Center. My husband had veal and I had pasta. We both had salads and we got dessert as it was my birthday dinner. The service was attentive and the food delicious. We thought the portion size was just right. The piano player started when we were partially through our meals. After having walked past Tuscana West for years, I was glad that I finally went in to eat there. Would definitely go back.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and atmosphereHuge fan of this restaurant. For overall experience it is my favorite Italian restaurant in DC. The gnocchi with bolognese sauce is delicious! The gnocchi melt in your mouth.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLike a dream of Italian delightsFrom the very fresh and tasty Ceasar salad that is prepared in front of you to the amazing flavor of their raviolis. The free appetizer bread was a bit disappointing and although service was a little slow at the start, once the salad service began, everything was smooth. My $19 ravioli meal (chicken with veggies in herbs and butter sage sauce) was divine but only came with four on a plate. That's almost $5 per ravioli. Just saying. The panacotta dessert was dreamy. Best to not come hungry here and with a pocket full of cash. Overall a great experience not sure need repeating.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMTuscana West is a beautifulTuscana West is a beautiful restaurant! Live piano player who is amazing and plays lots of recent top 40 hits. We walked past him and saw that he didn't even have sheet music! I was very impressed. The service was amazing. The guy who was coming back to refill our water glasses was there maybe every 15 minutes. My glass was not empty one time. The food was well cooked and very well presented. I definitely recommend you stick around for desserts as they were the best part of our meal! My husband tried the lobster bisque soup and said it was the most heavenly soup he had ever tasted. This place is wonderful for a nice romantic date with your significant other and a quick walk away from the Mcpherson Square Metro stop. Wonderful place!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a gorgeous restaurant!Such a gorgeous restaurant! Loved the live music. Great happy hour specials. Wonderful service at the bar (though not at our table, unfortunately). Such good food!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friends and I go thereMy friends and I go there because we love the food, the service is excellent, and it is in a convenient location between all of our offices. We try to meet every couple of months and have always had a good time and good food. I would certainly recommend it to anyone.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was excellent andOur waiter was excellent and it reminded me of a restaurant in my hometown of Hamilton, Ontario. Old style with great ambience and service. No one was rushing you out. Its our second time there and we'll definitely go back.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a good option forThis is a good option for a business or family group. The menu is varied. It is not steakhouse expensive. The decor is attractive. Service is professional. I have been when it was quiet, but usually has a buzz.
My complaint this time was the wine list: they were out of the $40 and $50 choices and the "specials" offered as replacements were in the $80 range.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTuscana West is a great placeTuscana West is a great place for fine wine, delicious food and excellent service. I look forward to trying different menu items and I'm never disappointed.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PMWe were in town for a special,We were in town for a special, outdoor event with a large group. We were unable to dress as nicely as Tuscana West's ambience deserved, but the staff was friendly, warm and welcoming nonetheless. The food was delicious, and the service was quick. I would visit again in a heartbeat.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
