    This is a great Italian restaurant, great food, good wine list, and very excellent service. The Eggplant Parmesan was the best I've had in a long time (hint: have them sprinkle lots of grated Parmesan cheese on it). My only complaint was they have entertainment at night (on a Sunday night at least), that's just too loud and distracting for a restaurant of this caliber. However, they did move us into another room that was much quieter after I asked for a quieter table than the one we had originally. Other than that, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    WE come often there. The main courses are usualy very good and service is attentive but this time the steak was overcooked probably because too many people came in at the same time. Appetizers are a little too expensive relative to what you get on the plate. Pastas are cooked properly but you have to mention to the waiter that you want it a little "undercooked" so you get it el dante! Wine list is good and the corckage fee is only $15. Reasonably priced. Strongly recommend.

    I found this little gem while looking for a nice Italian restaurant close by. We were not disappointed. The service is excellent. The ambience is very nice as long as you get a table in the back away from the bar which can be noisy. We prefer to try the specials instead of picking from the menu. We were very pleased with the daily specials we chose. The dining is very nice with white tablecloths and low lighting to enhance the mood. The one thing we would like to see added is a bottle of vinegar and a bottle of olive oil to pour onto a plate and dip the bread in. Overall a very splendid place to dine

    Overall Tuscany met my expectations, a really good Italian restaurant, traditional and home made meals with a 5 star restaurant touch. However, the place wher the restaurant is located is going under construction that forced the restaurant to close 2 hours before their regular time. We found out about it until we got there but the manager let us enjoy dinner with out canceling our reservation.

    Wow! What a great meal & dining experience we had. Our waiter, Sergio, made our experience very positive and enjoyable. He didn't hesitate to make suggestions, when asked, and even shared which soup to get that would enhance my meal, even when I was leaning toward something different. The food was cooked perfectly, presented beautifully, and wasmore than adequate in amount. Highly recommended.

    Wow! That sums it up. Please try it because you won't be disappointed. We finally had the night to ourselves without the 3 children. With many choices before us, my wife suggested Tuscany. It had been 10 years since we had dined there and it was just as good as we remembered. From the food (specials included three small filets with various sides and braised short rib ravioli), to the service (tag team waiters, attentive assistants), and management (Jacopo rocks). We don't normally order desert, but the Lemon cake with white chocolate flakes was great. We will be back soon!

    This restaurant is very dependable, serving excellent Italian food. I chose an unusual, but delicious pheasant with sour cherry sauce the other night -- pheasant breast was prepared perfectly; moist, juicy -- great dish. For the first time ever there were some service issues. He was a bit aloof or distracted and just not up to par for the restaurant.

    Unfortunately, we wanted a quiet relaxing, great food experience... While we did get a great food, and service experience... They had a local singer in singing your not so favourite hits of the 60's and 70's! While he is talented... It was SOOOOO LOUD! it was hard to enjoy anything at all. It was our first time there, quite possibly our last, if that music is every night! To the restaurant, what are you?? Fine dining? Or a bar, with food??? If you're fine dining... Fine, have some music, maybe a violinist or cellist, in the corner quietly playing romantic classical pieces, maybe turn the lights down, make the place more intimate... Too bad, the wine list has some hidden gems on it for VERY reasonable price, and the good is awesome!!!!

    OK, it's in a strip mall and looks utterly unremarkable from the outside (especially during construction). But this is an outstanding Italian restaurant with far more than the standard Italian choices. It's possible to eat healthily here, and the seafood choices are excellent. There were a lot of great specials, and the service is impeccable. We loved it.

    Tuscany has been a staple in Westlake Village for many years, and I can truly say - I have always enjoyed their food. Everything is prepared carefully and the service is wonderful. The only downside for our Anniversary night, was the noise level. That is no fault of the restaurants, but when couple's are trying to enjoy a romantic evening - maybe don't seat them near a party of 8 that are straining their voices to make sure everyone at the table can hear them. Between the party of 8 ladies, and the lady that came in with her date to sit at the table next to us - my husband and I couldn't wait to leave to get home and have a conversation. The food took our breath away, so we didn't need to talk and just enjoyed our food.

    We have lived in the area for twelve years (Camarillo) and missed several opportunities to eat at Tuscany but for one reason or another opted for other experiences--what a mistake! We missed out on a really fine dining experience--won't let that happen again. The young woman who seated us was understanding when we asked for another location and put us in a very wonderful spot and in the care of Morgan, a bubbling, efficient, professional server. Tomaso (sic?) the owner checked in to make sure we were satisfied. From the first sip of the parsnip ginger soup to the final cappuccino, we never had a moment's displeasure. For us, and our guests visiting from Washington, D.C., the Tuscany was a great, solid five star experience.

    We had not been in at least 5-7 years. Maybe now I remember why. We had an 8PM seating and they rushed us from soup to entree with no break at all. As soon as we took our last spoonful, they took our bowls & placed entrees in front of us. The food is rich and tasty but eat too much & pay for it later! They did comp us dessert for our wedding annivsry & that was kind (they even switched it out when we told the waiter we did not care for what they planned to bring us). Great wine selection. Service was attentive, but again- too rushed. The carrot/ginger/parsnip soup puree-excellent. Chilean sea bass was a little too fishy for that fish variety. Filet mignon strips served in the pasta was tough-most likely leftover pieces from nice filets.

    Considering the fact that there was lots of construction being done to all the shops and restaurants in that area, we were delightfully surprised to find the restaurant humming and buzzing with a full house and excellent vibes. The food was absolutely delicious. The menu was filled with creative dishes. The service was very good with a very pleasant wait staff.
