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.

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.

Nice ambiance.

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.

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.

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.

The appetizer arrived before the wine. The manager that gave the wine service opened the bottle, set it on the table, and walked away without offering a taste or even pouring our glasses. We promptly asked for the check.

They gave us a table far away from natural light, it was a dark area, It was too dark to the point that my friend makeup and her evening gown did not look good, the lighting made her wrinkles more noticeable. So if you are on a date and want to look your best ask for a table close to the windows, beside that we had a great time and the service was outstanding.

The burrata was fabulous, the tomato was warm and made the appetizer one of the best I have had. I had veal Milanese and my wife had veal al limone and both were great.
