Diner Reviews
  • "Haven't been there before. Overall I was pleased with the service and quality of food. They have a pretty good menu with many different tastes. I had the veal osso buco. It was quiet good but not the best I had I have to admit. However I would go again if I am in the area."

  • "Tuscany is my favorite restaurant for so many reasons. Great location. Great menu. Attentive service. Fabulous wine list. Delicious food. The mushroom risotto is incredible! The chicken picatta is fantastic. You cannot go wrong with ordering anything. I love, love, love this restaurant. The new owners have outdone themselves and it shows!"

  • "The pizza and Caesar salad was the worse we ever ate. Plus we asked if the salad came with anchovies. We were told yes in the dressing but they can add mo. We were charged extra on our bill."

  • "Once again, another fabulous meal at Tuscany. I took a client there and we had the most incredible meal. She had the eggplant torte with gnocchi which she raved about and devoured the entire dish. I had the wild mushroom risotto which is by far the best risotto I have ever eaten. The bread is hot and delicious. Wonderful menu with many choices. This remains my very favorite restaurant and I never have to worry about not being happy with any of the wonderful choices."

  • "Immediately at tine of Rez. Very loud inside, not an intimate evening. People yelling to talk over one another and live music. Octopus Salad was not very exciting. Truffle n mushroom pizza was A+. Ribeye was a B. Water was professional, nice and thorough."

  • "Overall, for a Friday night, Tuscany was good. The restaurant was crowded and noisy but the food was good. They try very hard to replicate an Italian experience but it is just a good local restaurant that is a bit pricey but in an area that can afford the extra cost."

  • "We are fairly new to the area, and we wanted to find a local place that has good food that would we come back to frequently. Tuscany was a pleasant surprise. The restaurant is located in a small shopping center, but once in side the place it feels quaint. The bar area is moderately noisy but tolerable. We saw on child in the restaurant, but it does not appear very kid-friendly. On the Saturday night that we were there, they had live piano music. The appetizer, salad and entrees were all prepared nicely and seasoned well. The service was timely and the waiter was friendly. We are somewhat choosey when it comes to food/restaurants but we will return to Tuscany and will recommend it to friends."

  • "We were a group of 6 celebrating a birthday. The service was great and our waiter Giuseppe was wonderful. The food was excellent and at the end when the birthday cake came out the waiters sang and served the cake for us. We had a great time with the live entertainment and it wasn't too loud which helped hear everyone speak."

  • "I met a friend here for lunch yesterday and we had a fabulous meal with great service. I had the wild mushroom risotto which was incredibly delicious and full of flavor. She had the pasta special which she proclaimed to be one of the best meals she has ever eaten. The service was flawless and we had a great visit with the new owner Joey who is dedicated to delivering a wonderful product and he is doing quite well! We love this little restaurant with a great bar, fabulous Happy Hour and friendly service."

  • "This place had gone a little bit downhill, then it changed owners. The menu is now updated with many interesting choices, mostly Italian but also continental. On weekend nights it gets very crowded but is not overly noisy. The over-40 bar scene is hopping most nights, and the service is great. A very pleasant neighborhood gem, nice place for a romantic meal as well as a family scene. The stuffed squash blossom appetizer is small but delicious, the steaks are good and so are the salads. Lots of daily specials."

  • "I wouldn't call it a vibrant bar scene...just a noisy one. The place is really loud due to the bar crowd...the food is basic Italian fare but not inexpensive for a strip mall location. Dinner for 4 plus wine(100) plus tip was $360. If we go back it will be for happy hour, seems that's what the locals do. There are many better dining options around Carlsbad. For Italian try Vivace at the Park Hyatt...just up the road."

  • "We returned to celebrate my birthday with friends and family and we all loved it! The service was great, the food was divine and we all had a wonderful evening. The mushroom risotto was over the top fabulous as was the Bolognese over pasta. The Caesar salad is incredible as is the calamari appetizer. The wine list is great and prices are normal. Be sure to get a reservation as the restaurant was totally packed by 7:30 PM. New ownership has made a few changes, all for the better. You will love the food here!"

  • "This was our first visit since the change of ownership and we were not disappointed! Joey greeted us and seated us. The new menu is great. I ordered the salmon salad and it was incredibly delicious. We are returning for dinner tonight! Love the new look and the food is outstanding. Highly recommend!"
