We went to Osteria Toscana for Valentine’s Day with an 8:15 PM reservation. We were not seated until 8:45 PM. We have fined here numerous times so I immediately realized that they swapped out some of the regular seating and added small folding tables. With our luck we got the small table in the back left side of the restaurant. There were 5 tables all on top of each other. We all could hear everyone else’s conversation. When the waiter finally made he way over I asked about the seating and was told they do this for every holiday. What was supposed to be a romantic evening turned into a horrible experience. Unfortunately at 8:45 PM there was no other choice. We didn’t even see a Manager or Owner come by to ask how everything was going. This just goes to show the greed rules. The owner of this establishment should be utterly embarrassed for last night. He has lost us a customer for good.

Osteria Toscana is our go-to destination for all special events, and even just a “night out”. We love Josh, one of the servers there. In fact, all the servers are so attentive and lovely. And, they make killer martinis! Food is always amazing. Our kitchen away from home.

Table for 2 was right near the door. Reservations were backed up and people were hanging over us. Not really the romantic setting we were hoping for on Valentines Day. Disappointing.

Was first time there and all else other than my meal was good but I was disappointed with my dinner which was the steak special this past Saturday, it was tough and for the price ($50) was definitely not worth it compared to other places I dine for the same amount.

This was my go-to place and one of my favorite restaurants however I made reservations days ahead of time and said it was for an anniversary. I was hoping to get a nice quiet and romantic area however we were put in the tiniest table where I was on top of everyone around me, the noise was like a club scene and there was so much traffic going by us that we could barely hear ourselves think. The food was very good and our service has always been great but as a large guy I was very uncomfortable and could not enjoy my meal. As the night went on there were so many people filtering in they wrapped around the front area and stared at us eating. I need to rethink were we go every year for our anniversary.

We enjoyed our meals, wonderful food, and the bread is exceptional! I would have given 5 stars on everything , but our waiter couldn't answer a question about an item on the menu and told us incorrect info on an app, however he was very attentive.

Server was horrible. She spilled oil all over my husbands menu and got it on his pants.
Brought him a cup of club soda to sop up the oil in his pants.
My pork chop was over cooked and the rabe broccoli was tough and oily.
The pork chop was 29.00 (overpriced) and they charged an extra 2.00 to substitute the mashed potatoes for the vegetable.
Very disappointed.

Went for my birthday dinner. It was excellent and our server was great. I am ashamed I forgot his name. The food was delicious. I have no complaints. We shared one dessert and they brought it out with a lit candle which was a nice touch. Second time to restaurant and won't be last.

The main reason for our great lunch was Dan, the manager. He aims to please and accomplishes the task completely and with class. I hope his supervisors appreciate his knowledge, patience, experience and extraordinary personality.
With Dan on the premises, Osteria Toscana is a guaranteed success!

Had only been there once prior. Remember food good. This time food was excellent had bolognese-honestly best I've had. Waiter Carl was very good - attentive and personable. Prices were mostly comparable to RI restaurants- but a little
More pricey. Only negative - tables MUCH to close to each other. Wasn't bad when we first were seated. Then staff added a table of 4 that totally took away any room between tables. Not very safe if quick exit was necessary. Bottom line very good experience will definitely come again.

What an AMAZING dining experience!! The host was so friendly, and we discovered we were both from the same area of Massachusetts. We had a reservation, we were a bit early, but they had our table ready in less that 3 minutes of us checking in. We had 2 servers and they were BOTH PHENOMENAL!!! We were NEVER left to want for anything, they always came back to check on us. We didn’t have to ask for anything, they always offered.
I ordered a Bellini, and I have never gotten one that was what it was supposed to be...but THIS BELLINI WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! The food was amazing! I cannot say enough about how beautiful it was sitting down and seeing the beautiful holiday lights on the tree in the dining room. Everything was perfect! The only problem I had (and it wasn’t a big one), was the table next to us was grandparents bringing their young grandchildren and they LITERALLY were playing games on their phones (with the volume all the way up) throughout the entire meal.
Aside from that...perfection from beginning to end!!
I would recommend this beautiful establishment to EVERYONE!!!

Food was very good. My lamb was slightly overcooked, but still very good, otherwise I would have scored higher on the food. They did offer to replace, but didn't want my hubby to wait for me. They gave us a table in a nice quiet area for our anniversary dinner and the staff was over-the-top friendly.
