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.

I had luncheon special of rolled veal over risotto. The veal was over cooked and hard to cut. I didn’t say anything because I was enjoying my time with an old friend. The service was excellent. I have eaten there many times and always enjoyed it. Just an off day.

Have been here many times; however slightly disappointed in service this visit. My husbands appetizer never came out, he requested no cheese sauce on his cannelloni but when it came out there was cheese sauce...(he just scraped it off), and all other tables were served the typical plate of fresh veggies... they skipped that for us.
Food portions generous and very very good. Great atmosphere. The service we received on Saturday night is not typical so we will definitely be back

This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. We went for our 51st-anniversary dinner. The service was great the atmosphere was beautiful and the food was outstanding. We went on a Sunday afternoon and I can't wait to go again. I have already recommended it to several of my friends.

First time I've been disappointed here. The special was over-priced and just OK (mashed garlic potatoes were like paste). I requested a quiet table for an anniversary dinner and was seated in a room with a containing a table with a large party. Service was just OK.

Excellent service by Mara. Food was outstanding. The only downside was the bread pudding. Not as good as the trattoria in Lincoln. Should be improved. Will go there again with friends.

Excellent. Waitress never told us there were specials. She said because we came at 430 they weren't printed yet. She should have been briefed and been able to recite them to us. We heard the waiter at next table telling his customers after we had already ordered

Birthday celebration for my daughter. This place is amazing. The owner Pauline, we love. She can over chatted we with. Made us feel like VIP. The place is beautifully designed. Must sit in the main room with the lighted tree. The food outstanding. Fresh. Hot. Delicious. Stuffed squash blossoms. Stuffed mushroom. Grilled peach and buratta. Love. Love. Love. Oh almost forgot the drinks. Must have the sangria. My favorite is the champagne. The seasonal harvest is delicious too. We were there on a Friday. There was a live keyboard player. Nice.

Been there multiple times. The food and service is always incredible. This was, however, the first time I made reservations and had to wait a bit to be seated. Just shows you how high demand this restaurant is, but don't let this deter you from eating there... the food itself is worth the wait

Excellent food. Service was very courteous and efficient. I had the VITELLO BOCCONCINI DELLA NONA AL VIN SANTO, which was fantastic. It was a healthy portion that left me comfortably full. My wife and kids also enjoyed their meals very much - MAMA’S SUNDAY GRAVY, COTOLETTA DI VITELLO ALLA PARMIGIANA, SEAFOOD OVER SQUID INK PASTA. Excellent night out and I will definitely be back.

This was not our first time at Osteria Toscana and as usual the food was delicious. Great choice of additional appetizers, which we tried and the entrees were delicious. The food tastes like it was home cooked just for you and tasty. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable with the questions we asked. An overall great experience.

Per usual, our food was fantastic. The only disappointing part is that I had put in the opentable notes that we were celebrating our friends’ 20th anniversary, so anything special would be appreciated. However, there was no mention of this by the waitstaff. 😔

I normally frequent this restaurant and have never had an issue. Unfortunately this was not the case on Saturday night. My veal parm had a very odd and off taste to it, as if it were frozen and then microwaved. I took 4 bites and could not bring myself to finish it, it was that bad. My mother said her gnocchi's were rather soft but she's not one to complain. We took them home and I tried them... complete mush. Just rolled up dough. I got angry with her for not telling me they were that bad because I would have called the manager over to taste them, as well as my veal. Because we frequent there often is why I didn't make a fuss, and I DO like this place. Sat night was just a terrible food experience and thankfully it was just my family and not business guests, as I would have been completely embarrassed.

As always the food here is great. Starting with the peach and burrata app with prosciutto which was a great combination, and finishing off with one of the best scallop dishes I have had in a very long time. Between all of the Trattoria owned RI locations, I probably go to one of them at least once a week. Never disappointed, but I really don't want people to know about this place because I hate the thought of having to compete for a seat.

My husband, father, and I went to celebrate my birthday. First, they seated us and after about 6 minutes asked us to move to accommodate a group of ten . We were told he forgot about the group of ten.
So, we moved. Well, they moved us next to a group of women who were doused in cologne. I am allergic and coughed all night. We ordered the squash flower special, which we were quickly informed they ran out of them . However, squash flowers were brought out yo the party of ten. I guess they had reserved those too.
Our food came out and my sold was awful. My husband had the Mammas Sunday dinner and that was bad, too. The waiter was surprised that we said no we didn't want to take our leftovers home.
I was so sick from the cologne worn by the group of women that I became very suck all.over my brand new 2 week old 2018 car.
We will never go there again.

Everything was freshly prepared. Salads were generous and crisp, dressing not over powering arugula. Entrees were piping hot, perfect. Moulten lava chocolate cake was shared and not overly sweet. Our third visit and we'lol definitely return. Always pleased but will know to request table away from bar, in diningroom.
