    Visiting from the New York area on business, I have been to this restaurant over a dozen times in the past six or seven years. The menu and wine list are very good and they typically have a nice variety of specials. The wait staff is polite and helpful. The ambiance is suitable for a business dinner or casual dining. Good bar.

    Crab cake appetizer ($15) was four small cakes the size of a 50 cent coin that were frozen and then deep fried. Very poor. Fresh salad was good. Tonight's beef special tasted like pot roast.

    We've been going here for many years. The construction is terrible! I hope they don't leave the restaurant in the shape it's in now. Very unfriendly atmosphere. We had to change tables because of the noise. Food was great as always, and our server Nicole was excellent. Please fix the interior seating arrangements.

    I would have considered my experience here a 5 star rating. However, the ongoing construction outside looked like a war zone and really took what should be a good first impression and made it less than appealing. Walking from the parking spot (not enough spots BTW) was and adventure stepping over fallen branches, muddy water streaming across the lot and construction debris! Otherwise, the service was excellent, ambiance nice, and food was fantastic!

  • Best Italian in Thousand Oaks
    whocareswhoiamVIP
    Dined on 10/3/2014
    Tuscany has been in this location for years and is the "staple" upscale restaurant in Thousand Oaks. Generally it has a vibrant bar scene and is busy, especially on a Saturday night. Due to the strip mall owners remodeling the center, parking is a challenge these days. The mall owners are taking their time to reinvent the shopping center and it really makes it difficult to find parking near the restaurant. Apparently the mall owners don't care if it is difficult for patrons of the existing businesses to find parking, it is a challenge to negotiate driving through the center and steering clear of nails, materials etc. Having said all that...it is a fantastic dining experience and once inside you forget that you parked a center away!

    First time back after many years. The food and service are still good, but the atmosphere is very different now. It used to be a dressed up place, but now they have customers in jeans and shorts. And the hostess was in shorts. Two big screen TV by the bar and people at the bar were noisy. Just like a sports bar.

    Yes, another "Kids UN-FRIENDLY" restaurant for a romantic and enjoyable place WITHOUT SCREAMING BABIES, TANTRUMED TODDLERS and RUDE, NEANDERTHAL FAMILIES!! The food was GREAT and moderate prices. Mostly Italian dishes, amazing pasta specialties. Full bar, superb service and a peaceful, "fine-dining" ambiance. Great for couples or just out for relaxing dinner WITH OUT THE KIDS!!! The bad part is the parking due to major construction. This will be improved very soon. It's difficult to find nice places like this anymore. We avoid any "Family Restaurant" that caters to spoiled brat kids that I blame it on the ignorant, poorly trained parents.

    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.
