Located in the heart of Brentwood, Bar Toscana is an intimate cocktail bar situated next door to storied TOSCANA, a longtime home for Hollywood’s elite.

Bar Toscana’s simple, yet elegant menu is composed of small plates, or stuzzichini, an array of hand-crafted cocktails and an Italian-focused wine list.

At once relaxed and stylish, this neighborhood lounge is ideally fashioned for unique cocktails and sparkling conversation..

We heard so many great things about Bar Toscana and had to try since we just moved to Brentwood from Manhattan. While the service was incredible-- our waitress was so kind and attentive-- the food was not very good. i just kept waiting to think something was really amazing and it wasn't. I think Pizzana down the street is ten times better and far more inexpensive.

Everything was great. Bolognese and Trio Bruschetta are some of my favorites. Can get pricey if you let it. Love this place

We made a last minute reservation and honestly “settled” for Toscana due to the noise. I was delighted to find we were in the quieter “bar” toscana. My husband and son were happily surprised by the tv with the game on and the food was toscana- fine and had an extra bar menu to boot. It was wonderful and the staff was attentive and warm.

Great neighborhood bar, if your neighborhood is Brentwood! Not at all inexpensive, but high quality food and drinks that are fairly priced for what you get. Real cocktails (no mixes), nice wines by the glass, excellent food and first-rate, unpretentious and very friendly staff.

The artichoke salad is excellent. I was very disappointed with the calamari pasta dish I ordered. It sounded as though it would be tasty however it was beyond bland. It was as though the calamari were steamed and added to plain pasta with a couple leaves of sage. I ordered chili flakes and olive oil in an attempt to have some sort of flavor but even that didn't help.
My friend's eggplant parmigiana was just ok.
The noise was deafening . We all felt exhausted from attempting to have any sort of conversation.

The wait staff and hostess are impeccable. No complaints there. I have had very good meals in
both Toscana and Toscana Bar and hope this was an off night. Still won't go during peak hours if I want to speak with my table partners.

We booked the restaurant but was seated for the bar. Totally different experience. Bar was noisey and hectic we wanted a nice high end, quiet birthday dinner. Service was 5/5 at the bar, so that worked for us.

I always love the food at Bar Toscana. Much more my style of dining and casual when you want great food. A favorite location to meet friends. Good service and reasonable prices for the quality of the food.

Bar Toscana has a great variety of menu items in which you can order from both Bar Toscana, and Toscana which is across the hall from each other. The service is top notch, and the food and beverages are amazing! A great neighborhood place in Brentwood with a well planned out menu!

First time. Hadn't been to Toscana in long time. Great place for casual sitting without the "frills" but yet really good food and wine.
