Have been there many times before and enjoyed the service and food. This time, they got my order wrong. When the waiter finally brought my food, it was very disappointing. The waiter was obnoxious and condescending. We were 2 couples and no one was thrilled with the food.

We always debate our selections because the favors are thoughtful and subtle. This creative cuisine far outstrips expectations for "a neighborhood gem." I am lucky that this jewel is near my neighborhood.

BV Tuscany is a neighborhood gem, a favorite restaurant that offers consistently excellent food and service.
I took a friend with a very restrictive diet there, and they were most attentive to her dietary needs. It was a tasty and enjoyable dining experience for both of us.

Almost everything about BV was 5 star - the service was attentive and excellent, pretty restaurant with comfortable seating, menu choices great and everything we ordered was terrific - loved the lobster fra diavalo special and the chicken with brown sauce and mushrooms. Our only complaint was the bread - thin slices of very mediocre bread. A restaurant of this caliber can do much, much better on the bread front! Come on guys - how about some nice crusty thick slices of warm sourdough?!

I found this restaurant browsing open table. I couldn’t get over all the positive reviews so had to see for myself. BV Tuscany did not disappoint! We were welcomed and seated right away. Our waiter Andy was not only knowledgeable but he was hysterical too! We loved our food and drinks and will be back for sure!

WE HAD ANOTHER ENJOYABLE MEAL. DESPITE BEING A LITTLE LATE WE WERE NOT RUSHED.
THE WIAT SERVICE IS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND ATTENTIVE WITHOUT BEING OVERBEARING.
AND OF COURSE THE FODD CONTINUES TO BE FINE. IF YOU LIKE SPECIALITIES SUCH AS
TRIPPA YOUR WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. MY SQIUD INK PASTA DISH WITH ROCK SHRIMP
WAS EXCELLENT AS WAS THE BRONZINO.
THIS IS ONE PLACE YOU CANNOT GO WRONG!

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
