Cucina Toscana Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately we went to dinner on Valenties night and the restaurant was not at all prepared. After 3o minutes of eating for menu's we were finally able to order a bottle of wine. They did not have the wine we wanted and said they would get something comparable. So what they did was went and found a more expensive bottle. I figured that out at the time of paying the bill. They also set up extra tables since they wanted to get as many reservations as they could. So my wife and I sat at a table foe 6 people however there was only two of us. And we were sat next to the restroom so it was entertaining watching people coming and going from the restroom. Food was plain not all that great.
Restaurant decided to let us know the day before they had a set menu for Valentine's day. I let them know I choose them because they didn't have one since we are on a strict diet. They let me know they can accommodate any dietary needs, yet when we were there nothing worked with what we eat and they would not accommodate our needs.... Not to mention the cost per plate was easily double their normal cost!
My son's family and I were very pleased with this restaurant. Great food and attentive service. The only negative was that we were seated by a big bank of windows and it was February. When we mentioned that we were cold, the staff immediately got a portable heater to place by the table. We will definitely go again, but we'll wait for the warmer weather.
Food quality has declined since Valter left. It used to be an authentic Italian experience, but they’ve turned the place into a “trying to be upscale” after actually being upscale. $30-40 for frozen gnocchi & undercooked ravioli (clearly not freshly made like it used to be) is ridiculous. Search for Valter’s new place, you won’t be disappointed there.
Both food and service were outstanding! We had lemon chicken piccata with mushrooms and artichoke hearts, tenderloin medallions in red wine reduction, and parmesan chicken -- and all were outstanding. Perfectly prepared and presented.
And our waiter brought complimentary bruschetta appetizers and tiny cups of chocolate latte, which started off and finished the meal perfectly. The red wine we chose was conservative in price but very good. We will return.
We hadn't been to this restaurant in years, and it has changed a great deal, all for the better. It's a very comprehensive menu, and everything was really delicious. Portions are large, and ingredients are very fresh and plentiful, justifying the prices. My friend had a special seafood dish with sea bass, shrimp, clams, and a small lobster tail. I had veal with oyster mushrooms in cream sauce. Both large and scrumptious. Also asparagus soup and eggplant parmesan appetizer were very good. Will certainly go back.
What an experience. Thoroughly pleased with the dining experience offered from Cucina Toscana. The staff was attentive but not invasive. The food, oh the food. Gnocchi made fit for royalty. Flavors that just take over your palate with pure joy. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting authentic and delicious Italian food.
First visit November 29, looking for reasonable Italian [being an out of towner] and found it in Cucina Toscana. Staff were attentive without being over-powering, knowledgeable on both food and wines. Appetizers and Entrees were varied and served well presented, tasteful and hot! Have them down for another visit next trip through SLC.
This place is a gem. I reserved this location for 8 people who were all visiting SLC on business for a conference. This may have been some of the best Italian food we have had in a long time. Everyone was impressed by the quality of the food and the service! I really can't say enough to praise the great job Cucina Toscana did, and I really wish they had a location near me in Massachusetts so I could take my wife out for date night. We were served a decadent hot chocolate with biscotti after dinner, on the house, which was a great surprise. Since we enjoyed dinner so much, we had to try dessert and we shared this amongst the group...again, delicious.
One note, I think on Google or Yelp reviews they had 4 stars, this place is definitely 5 stars. Prices might be high for the area (just an assumption), but the experience is definitely worth every penny. Gratuity was included (20%) and the service was worth every %.
Had a terrific time at Cucina Toscana!
It seems like I've eaten my way through Salt Lake City these last few years since relocating here from the Midwest. For some reason, Cucina Toscana had never made my hit list until now. Boy, what a mistake that was. We are already planning our trip back!
We had family in town so I used my $100 gift card. We felt very taken care of. A little pricy to go often, but were pleasantly surprised by the fresh tomatoes on bread at the beginning and awesome bread basket. Was not a fan of dip, but could have asked for butter or basalmic. Also, we were pretty full to order dessert but was delighted by the mini cup of cocoa with cookie biscuit. It was a lovely dining experience. Thank you!
We went for a birthday... food was good, but portions are extremely small. The service was good, once it got going. It took a while for them to get moving. I was running late for my reservation... called 3x... no answer... they honored my reservation which I was grateful for them doing so.
Overall, it's lost a lot of it's feel since i went almost 10 yrs ago. I wouldn't go back.
I made a last minute decision to dine there on a Tuesday night. It wasn't busy so the staff wasn't too stressed. Still found it interesting that my waiter would disappear for stretches. The food was good but at the prices charged I thought it would be better.
The ambiance was very cool, the white tablecloths and the dark gray-colored walls were quite striking. Staff were very attentive, refilling water glasses without being asked, offering more bread without any hesitation––they were terrific!
The wine list was impressive, but the by-the-glass list was too short; I would have really liked to have had more options. We enjoyed the meat and cheese plate to start, very good flavors that complemented each other well. Next, I had a small Gnocchi and Ravioli plate. They were very delicious, tender and perfectly presented. For entrees we had the Chicken Piccata and my partner had the larger Gnocchi and Ravioli plate. The food was quite delicous, but unfortunately the portions were small for the price.
A lovely, hip restaurant and a good place to celebrate a special occasion.
The reviews on OpenTable were great so I decided to give it a try. I was disappointed. The prices were high for the quality of food. The ordering was difficult. We ordered cocktails before dinner and they didn't arrive until it was time for the main course. Very disappointed. I won't return.
