Diner Reviews
  • "We had a great time recently at Via Toscana for a date night. Wine and food were both excellent and service was outstanding. They offer an excellent combination of traditional or more inspired Italian dishes with a fun atmosphere and outstanding deserts. We had amazing soups, well paired wine, and excellently prepared main dishes. We'll be back soon!"

  • "Toscana has come a long way from the pizza and calzone restaurant we visited in Louisville in 2002. Wonderful energetic atmosphere. Good variety and excellent service. We will return."

  • "Not being a very busy night , all of the patrons seemed to herded into the same area , which made it loud and not very inviting ."

  • "As always, the mushroom risotto is great along with the stuffed mushrooms. We ordered the lamb this time. Unfortunately, it was a bit dry. Next time, we'll order the rabbit ragout. It's always a winner!"

  • "My Italian friends love this restaurant because it's the genuine article. The food is outstanding Italian, and the place is such a delightful surprise, tucked in the corner of a strip mall. It's not at all expensive, but the food is top of the line, and the atmosphere is charming. (even romantic for some) It looked to be a hit for Friday afternoon bar gatherings as well. A super Louisville treat!"

  • "One of the best Italian meals we've had in a long time. Quiet, great service, great wine list, and everything we ate was wonderful. I'll be back on a regular basis!"

  • "This was my fourth visit. The service was good as usual. The ambiance is always great, clean, well-lighted facility with a great layout. The wine list is impressive. The noise level has been reasonable half the time I've been there. This time we had a loud talker next to us and she was obnoxious. An occasional loud laugh makes good atmosphere; constant cackling is a problem when you have to raise your voice to be heard. I ordered the Risoto de Mare but got the Wild Mushroom Risotto with asparagus & crispy parmesan by mistake. I had a chance to send it back and I'm sorry I didn't. It was mushy, the parmesan was not crispy and the asparagus was horribly stringy/chewy. The chef needs to taste more and select better ingredients."

  • "We were looking for some good Italian food close to home, so decided to try Via Toscana. Don't let the strip mall location deter you. They have very good tasting food. Service was kind of slow at first, but they recognized it and comped us an appetizer for the wait. All in all a good find, we will be back."

  • "So nice to find fresh flavor Italian food as opposed to cheap, oversalted, out-a-can pasta. I had the polenta, which was full of veggies and cooked perfectly. My daughter had the kid's penne alfredo and it must have been good because not a noodle was left. She had a scoop of salted caramel gelato which was to die for! I didn't see much for dessert because I need to keep it light on dairy."

    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Having read a review in our local paper, we had been wanting to try Via Toscana. Denver Restaurant week gave us an opportunity to sample several selections. Everything we had was very good to excellent. The chef's teaser to start (before the 3 courses) was a tasty risotto and a nice treat. Wines by the glass are offered in the standard pour or twice that much for less than twice the price. We looked at their extenisive Happy Hour menu of a large varietty of small plates and intend to return to sample that selection. I highly recommend Via Tuscana."

  • "We dined here to find a nice restaurant for a wedding rehearsal dinner and we were very pleased with the menu options, extensive wine list and accommodations for a large group. Sean did an excellent job of welcoming us and explaining what was available plus a wonderful flexibility with the menu & drink options. He provided us with several selections of wine to choose from which fun for us to sample & determine which ones we liked. We ordered some of the salads, entrees & desserts and all 4 of us were very pleased with our selections. Tyler and the other wait staff were attentive and accommodating to all of out requests. We think this will be a perfect choice!"

  • "We have not been to Via Toscana in a few years because it's a long drive for us. We went on a special occasion and were not disappointed. It's a beautiful spot with fabulous food and a moderate price.Who could ask for more."

  • "We always eat here for Valentines Day and New Years Eve because the do such a great job with their set menu's."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It's been a few years since our last trip to Via Toscana. It's gone through a renovation during that time creating seating that's less intimate and drastically increasing the noise level. As always, the food is delicious but it was difficult to hold a conversation. The next time we'll go later as things started to die down some after 7."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Everything was very good, from food to service. It would be nice to have more on you plate, I.e., I had the rabbit and there really was not that much. But it was good."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I made this reservation just a few days prior to Valentines Day. I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. I wouldn't say it is the best but it was still much better than average and offered an intimate atmosphere. The food was decent, I didn't care for the caesar salad as it looked brown and way too tangy of a taste. I ordered mahi mahi and it was delicious (maybe slightly overcooked) and my wife ordered steak medium well. I prefer my steak medium rare but tried it and was impressed by the tenderness and flavor of the steak. Dessert was to die for I had the tiramisu and it was delicious. Overall this was a very good restaurant but the service could have been better. I recommend it to anyone else that wants an intimate romantic dinner."

  • "The Price fix menu was well thought out. All of the choices were fantastic. Our only complaint was that a few of the dishes definitely seemed premade and kept warm. It did not effect the flavors but, it was a little disappointing. We have eaten here before and that is not something we have run into before. I suspect it was done because of the amount diners they were anticipating. Also, the 1st 3 courses seemed rushed. But, again, it was so busy we understood."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I have been wanting to try this restaurant for awhile now and it did not disappoint. We went there for my daughter's birthday dinner. It was a little louder than I had hoped. It was extremely busy in there but they did have our table ready when we got there. The wine suggested by our server was spot on and delicious. Prices were reasonable as well."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "I don't know why I keep forgetting about Via Toscana as a place to enjoy well prepared Italian food. Maybe it's because we live in Boulder and have so many good choices here, but Via Toscana would hold its own in Boulder too. On this visit, my wife had shrimp and scallops with penne and she rated it outstanding. I ordered the beef tip bolognese and found it to be excellent too. We enjoyed a nice bottle of Sangiovese, which was reasonably priced and matched our meals perfectly. The waitstaff at Via Toscana are always well trained, helpful and clearly want you to enjoy your meal. We've eaten at Via Toscana maybe five times in five years and enjoyed it every time. We need to go there more often......."

  • "We had a wonderful experience at via Toscana last Saturday night. We were seated at a nice and comfortable corner booth on the porch. We all loved the easy visiting at this table. Our server was Jameson and he had the right amount of chatting and right amount of leaving us to enjoy our time. I really liked the pace and felt like we were able to fully enjoy the time without being rushed Lastly Sean spent good time helping with our wine selection with a generous amount of knowledge to share. Our friends were very pleased with everything. We will be back!"

  • "Our service was TERRIBLE per our waiter, many mistakes, delays and poor communication. Never ONCE did we hear I'm sorry for the delay, mistake, etc (in fact at the end we heard about his aggravation with the night - unbelievable)...... If it weren't for the people who run the food it would have been bad enough to never go back. The food was good but would probably eat in the bar area next time in hopes of service that doesn't make you cringe. Would it have been asking a lot to comp something for all OUR aggravation, especially for an $80 meal for 2!"

  • "Party of four enjoyed everything about their dinner here. Will definitely return for dinner in the future. Very large wine and craft beer list. The only disappointment for us was the desserts."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "The food was excellent as was the service. The tables are a little close together and the noise level was high on a busy Friday night. It is priced appropriately. We will return!"

  • "I continue to be amazed at how consistent Via Toscana is in their food and service, just impeccable. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Plus the noise level is not atrocious like so many "upscale" restaurants. Keep up the great work!"

  • "I have been wanting to try this place for awhile. I went for the New Years Eve 4 course dinner. Food was good, but nothing special. I did like the atmosphere. The wine and beer list was very impressive as well."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We have eaten here many times over the past five or six years, and have never been disappointed. Via Toscana is a quality organization. The menu s diversified, creative and interesting. One of the most impressive Italian wine collections in the State, as well as many other choices with a wide price range. Service is always friendly and professional--a well-trained staff. We will be back again and again."

  • "We have been to Via Toscana before - excellent happy hour. Unfortunately the New Years Eve special event was not very special. We made reservations at 8pm which I didn't think was that late. However, they ran out of the most basic mashed potato side dish, servers seemed to disappear for long amounts of time once the 6-7pm rush was over, and they ran out of "party favors" - a sack of biscotti we saw others walk out the door with. In addition, they lie paper on top of the table cloths. While cleaning, the bussers were constantly crumpling those paper table cloths up. There has to be a better/quieter way to clean the tables. The scallops seemed overly soggy for an additional $10. I believe they may be best on non-busy/special nights."

  • "Went for their new years eve dinner, special menu by chef. The salmon was the BEST!!! We had a wonderful meal and the service was really great as well. It is a little crowded for my taste, the waitress kept bumping the chair as she would pass by. i was disappointed in the cannoli dessert, it was extremely hard to cut through, it actually became comic able because the table next to our had the same and was doing the same thing trying to cut through it to eat it."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We had to wait a long time to get our entrees, but believe that the restaurant staff was overwhelmed by the success of their New Year's Eve marketing. Perhaps less complex menu items would have helped and speeded up the flow of the dining experience."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The New Year's Eve dinner special was very average and overpriced. I ordered the lamb. The portion was small and the server didn't know what cut Iit was. I still don't know. I asked the server several other questions about the menu and she didn't know the answers. I have had great dinners here before but was disappointed this time."

  • "Took my wife to Via Toscana for her birthday. We both had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and service. Our server, Alyssa, was very attentive and good-humoured. I personally didn't have any wine (my wife had a glass), but the sheer size of the wine list and my wife's reaction to it was enough to impress me."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "I would have rated this restaurant much higher after my first visit, but the service was not as good the second time. The food is REALLY GOOD, so I will definitely give it a chance with a different wait staff. The food is definitely worth going back. We just had to prod our server for nearly everything this time, whereas last time the server was perfectly engaged."

  • "We have been patrons of Via Toscana for many many years and have recommended it as a great place to meet friends from everywhere. Never disappointed and our friends always walk away with great reviews."

  • "Very respectable and well thought out wine list. The menu choices were very good as far as selection. The food preparation was very good. Tried the snapper and some pasta. The homemade cannoli was very good. Prices were reasonable. It's easy to recognize a restaurant that is run by private owners who care. Via Toscana is is one of the good ones. Beautiful decor'. The service was excellent! Recommended. Will return."
