One of the best Italian food we ever taste in the US. The service and preparation was excellent. The portions just right. Strongly recommended.
Seriously good service, knowledgable wait staff, authentic and fresh cuisine
Great restaurant with wonderful, friendly service. Excellent food.
Jonathan's suggestions were spot-on, great cheese tray to start (not on menu) and very attentive service. All food top-notch, left full and happy. Only tiny gripe is chairs are too low--feel like eating at the kids table.
Service was very good, food options very good, food Wes excellent. Thinly recommend
My woman and I really enjoyed it. Will definitely go back.
We were seated by the kitchen and bathrooms. Is this related to booking through Open Table. Also happened two nights later at Caffe Molise in SLC as well.
We stopped in Salt Lake City as part of our trip back to Colorado and spotted Cucina Toscana as we were checking out the neighborhood around our hotel. We looked it up on YELP and decided to give it a try!
We were not disappointed! We were warmly greeted by the hostess and seated promptly. Water, bread and a superb light vinaigrette were brought out right away. Our order was taken promptly and the dishes came out as we were ready for them! It was great! No piling up of dishes! We were able to enjoy each one❤️
We had beef carpaccio, the pasta duo, a shared Cesar, my husband had Saltimbuco (sp) and I had the pork tenderloin, it was amazing!!!
For dessert we shared a Tiramisu and ordered warmed cognac. It was clear that Margarite wasn’t sure what we meant so she went the extra mile to make sure our snifters were warm enough and that everything was perfect!
Margarite and her colleague, I’m sorry we didn’t get her name, were attentive and quickly responded to our requests even after a large party came in.
When we come back to Salt Lake City we will definitely come back!!
lasagna was awesome, waiter was great, definitely would recommmend.
We went for a Father’s Day dinner and Cucina Toscana is the best Italian food we’ve had in Utah. Great food, great vibe, and a great experience.
The food was really great but this time for some reason the service was a bit slow. We were there for over 2 1/2 hours for four of us which seemed a little excessive. Otherwise it was really good.
This is a “go to” restaurant. The service is first rate - Margarita is one of the best ANYWHERE. And the food is superb - truly excellent pasta, inspired seafood, and the Asparagus Soup is delicious! And… CANNOLI!
Service was excellent. Charcuterie plate needs more fruit.... halibut slightly overdone.
Service was not very good and waiters wait staff seemed confused. Food was average for price
Our waiter last night was very charming and attentive, thank you!
The food was incredible. It wasn't very busy, but we had to wait a while for our server. However, it was a perfect date night spot. We loved the charcuterie!
Luís was our server and honestly we had the best service I’ve ever had. He was so friendly and courteous and always had a smile. If I owned a restaurant he would be the first person I’d ask to work with, he is fantastic. The food was incredible as it always is and overall it was an amazing experience.
Love the restaurant and the service was great. They didn’t have any fish dishes as they were short staffed in the kitchen? (What the server said). The food was very good - my Marsala was a little salty. My son got the duck and it did not come with any vegetables or potato - just a plate of cut up duck in a sauce. All in all a good meal! Thank you!
Was actually disappointed with the quality of the food. Some things were very good and others not good at all. The soup was horrible. And bread not the best. Plates were good but very expensive. There are better options for Italian food in Utah.
Food was good but Waitress was not attentive. She did not come to table much to check if everything was ok. I wanted pepper for my salad, but she never returned. She also dropped our dinner off and left- husband really wanted salt. He finally got it when he was half way through his meal.
It was too hot, noisy, and very smoky. The portions were extremely small, 3 ravioli and 12 gnocchi for $28, really?!
Diners beware!! This restaurant uses what I consider to be unethical practices to increase the size of your check. In our case, our server asked us if we wanted to participate in their diners' "tour," which he described as a chef's-choice appetizer, a sampling of their most popular pastas, and then we each choose our entrée. So you might think that this is a sort of a prix fix model. Nope. It was NOT that. It was basically a way for them to lard up our bill to the tune of almost $200 for two people -- and we did not get alcohol. The chef chose to send us TWO appetizers, one of which was the most expensive on the menu. We were charged full price for both, even though we did not want both. The pasta dishes comprised tiny (approx two mouthfuls each) servings of gnocchi, angel hair, and one raviolo. They charged us $28 each for this. Then we were charged for our individual entrees. Did they lie and tell us the meal was prix fix? No, they didn't. Did they tell us they were giving us the second appetizer at no cost? No, they didn't. They never actually lied to us. But they definitely use what diners expect (like hospitality, value, and structures like prix fix) to trick their customers. Now, I'm not opposed to spending $200 on a special meal, but I want to know exactly what I'm spending and how much my ticket will cost. In this case, when compared to the food, experience, and ambiance, we felt completely ripped off and disappointed. Finally, I'll note that my husband and I both lived in Italy for an extended period of time. Cucina Toscana used to be one of the best Italian restaurants in town. That is no longer the case. SLC has some awesome Italian restaurants now. I would say spend your money elsewhere for a great meal and a price that feels honest.
The restaurant is lovely, the cocktails were great, the service is top notch, but the food was just average. My lasagna was mushy and over cooked. It didn’t have the usual layers of ricotta, sauce and meat. And there wasn’t a speck of basil in it or on it. My husband’s gnocchi wasn’t anything special and way too spicy and he loves spicy food. The gelatos are heavenly! The staff were awesome and provided excellent service. It’s worth another try because the restaurant has great ambiance.
Very good variety an not the normal American Italian rather good Italian...will go back whenever I have the opportunity. My wife loved it as well.
Awesome food and service!!
We never be dining at Cucina Toacana. Had a reservation later this month with our entire family but after our experience Saturday night we’ve gone ahead and cancelled our future reservation.
Bar doesn't make Bloody Mary's. Had Diet Coke, but not regular.
Lasagna does not have much meat inside & was soft, but overall good flavor.
The Veal Saltimbocca was the best I've ever had. For the first time, the prosciutto complemented the veal, & the veal was nice & tender.
The servicer was stop on....water glasses topped up without asking. The food was amazing, served correctly and - a big bonus - on hot plates. This was our second visit in less than ten days - I think that speaks for the excellence of this restaurant.
Not good food or service. Much better restaurants in the area
I enjoyed the experience overall, not nearly as great as I had been led to think by others, I would consider going back and giving it a go again but would certainly try other places first
The best is still the best!! Love this place. Cannot recommend it highly enough. Best Italian in Utah without a close second, and top five best restaurants of any category.
The meal was exceptional. We ate EVERY morsel, start to finish. Everything was so good!!!
Excellent food and service.
We were celebrating my father's birthday and the staff was so attentive and kind. The food and wine was delicious. I would definitely come here again!
What happened to this once amazing restaurant? I was so disappointed. I know Valter is no longer there and hasn't been for a while, but at least the food was still pretty good for a while. No longer. Overpriced for a mediocre meal, at best. Won't be back.
Food was delicious. The ambiance was great. We loved it.
We had friends in town and wanted to take them to a great local restaurant. The food was good and our server was great. They were short handed so it took awhile to get our food. We would give the restaurant another chance.
Horribly overpriced and terrible quality food. Service was mediocre at best.
Very nice restaurant but not worth price. Probably of going again is very slim
Food was as phenomenal as we remembered and are happy we returned while we were in town visiting. This was a favorite when we lived here and glad we could enjoy it again.
