As always, the food is excellent at BV Tuscany. Their specials are always fresh and delicious. Our mushroom risotto was packed full of flavor, and we were very happy that our waiter suggested it as an appetizer.
It was our anniversary, so we were treated to a song and a panne cotta dessert. Had we known, we would not have ordered desserts, but the sorbetti were also delicious.
We we always come here when we have something special to celebrate, or people from out of town. It is like having a NYC meal, but only minutes from home!

We are on our way home to Western NJ from JFK and I found BVs on Trio Adviser and Open Table. They seated us a bit ahead of their official open time, which was nice. The Black Tagliatelle was amazing, martini delicious and generous and the server was attentive and fun. The strawberry, pepper, balsamic over gelato was an incredible dessert A shot of grappa on the house at the end of meal was a treat. Wonderful find!

Coming from an Italian home cook this restaurant allowed me to not be disappointed that I wasn’t cooking. The food was very good, and the wait staff was phenomenal. You could tell how much they all enjoy working together. The atmosphere was warm and inviting which was amplified by the staff.

One note there is not a ton of space so strollers can be tight but they took ours and held it in the back room for us. Generally I would say they have a lot of tables that it should not be an issue to get a table but we came on a Friday and had reservations just in case.

I had gotten the black squid ink tagliatelle and although I hadn’t realized it was a pesto dish (I was expecting red sauce but I just didn’t read the description closely enough) it was very good.

We had brought our son who’s almost 1 year old and everyone was very accommodating. One of the waiters even hugged him and sang to him after my son lunged toward him while my wife was holding him. It was very cute haha.

The desserts are all homemade except for the ice creams (gelato or sorbets I forget which one) my tiramisu was very good and the Italian Riccota Cheesecake was amazing. One of my friends got the chocolate mousse and he said it was to die for.

All in all I will definitely head back. It is one of the best Italian restaurants around the area!

BV Tuscany REMAINS my family and my first choice in the REGION for authentic, excellent, not overly done, perfectly prepared and sumptuous Italian food. The ambiance is so beautiful in this small, neighborhood DIAMOND! Starting with their inventive appetizers -- always excellent, homemade quality, to the craft cocktails, their salads are supreme, HOMEMADE PASTA fit for all foodies and purveyors of great food alike. Entrees are tantalizing to the palate, and we have yet to order off their fantastic menu. We always get mesmerized by the specials! THERE ARE NO WORDS TO COMPLIMENT THEIR SIGNATURE DESSERT. You just must go there and try it. Just think strawberries.... and tell them Celeste and Mike sent you. BUT, be sure to order your own dessert... you'll be sorry you shared it.

I came the first time this past Mother's Day and my recent return visit was just as great as the first. Fresh food prepared with sophistication but not "stuffy". From the great homemade pastas to the delicate touch with what has to be freshly caught fish to the amazing deserts this place is a real find. I live in NYC and visit my mother in NJ every week so its great to have a place like this to go to. I usually pay at least twice as much for this quality in NY. I cannot leave out the great staff that are professional and friendly. If BV Tuscany was in Manhattan I'd be eating there at least twice a week

We make it a point to eat here 5 or 6 times a year, especially for special occasions. The service is always friendly and professional and the food is outstanding. In the past I have ordered veal, chicken, eggplant and fish dishes and various appetizers, all to my satisfaction, but on this occasion I ordered a pasta dish (Penne Stracisate) and they accomodated my request to add filet mignon meatballs. To die for! The pasta and sauce were perfect and the meatballs were great. The sauce was so thick you could eat it with a fork. My wife had the filet of sole - she usually has that, pistachio crusted salmon or Chilean Sea Bass when it's on special, which is frequent. The restaurant is a treasure

From the gnudi toscaccio appetizer, tre colore caterina salad, Agnello all chianti off the menu selections as well as the braised pork chop dish and short rib/veal tortellacci special were all ample portions, plated beautifully and served timely. A definite win, win, WIN! And the tiramisu, perfection! BV Tuscany is a WOW-

This was a perfect birthday surprise for a guy whose favorite food is Italian. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Maybe a little broader wine selection for by-the-glass would be a tiny improvement. We had an amazing time, loved the friendly and helpful waiters and the food was over the top good!

Second time a this restaurant (a Friday). First time (a Saturday) service was exceptionally good, not so much second time. We had to request for the bread basket to be brought to the table after waiting more than a reasonable amount of time for someone to notice our table.
