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.

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

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.

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.

Slowest service I’ve ever experienced at a fine dining restaurant. Took over half an hour to get our drinks on the table and the rest of the meal was the same story

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.

Very nice place to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. They made it a very nice experience. Food was fantastic, and the ambience was quiet which helped the romantic occasion. It was a very nice evening. The price is right for the food quality, the service and environment.

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.

Excellent restaurant. The wait staff was a well oiled machine. The caeser salad prepared table side was quite good. The manager made multiple rounds to inquire how everything was going. And finished with a large molten chocolate dessert erfect chocolate gelato. We'll be back in April when we visit Salt Lake City again.

Love this place, we’ve been 6 times and the food and service is always great and consistent. Best Italian in SLC, and it is definitely better than Valter’s Osteria! We love that they started doing specials off the menu, everything here is delicious. Great wine selection too!

We made reservations and was seated on time. The wait staff was attentive to our every need. The water never ran dry, which is saying something after a day of skiing. We had the Carpaccio appetizer which was magnificent. My wife had the Spinach ravioli and I had the Veal Picata. Both were excellent. We had the Tiramisu for desert and was treated to a demitasse cup of delicious hot chocolate. It was an awesome meal and experience!

The BEST Italian food we've ever had! The waiter was very knowledgable about the best items on the menu as well as the wine selection. Sometimes we felt wait staff was pretentious, but the food was well worth the experience and we're coming back already in 2 weeks!!

Food was fair at best. The caprese salad had tasteless, underripe tomatoes (I could pick better ones at the supermarket myself.) The “table side prepared Caesar salad was prepared somewhere else and was overdressed. The entrees were (in general) underwhelming because they were under seasoned, but if good size.

Service was poor to fair.

We took our daughter who lives in SLC here out to dinner; she is 21. Even after showing her ID for a cocktail, waitress gave us all a hard time about serving her. Then, we waited 15 minutes for our wine., which arrived after our salads.


Ambiance was poor. Lighting was bright like a dining hall. Tables were stark and clean. There is nothing charming about this restaurant.

I grew up near Boston. A special night out with my mom and dad was to the North End. It didn’t have to be fancy, but great food, service and a warm
atmosphere could be found almost anywhere. Toscana management needs to take a road trip to Boston, NYC, Chicago or Philly and see how it’s done! Such a missed opportunity in a city that’s redeveloping itself and new clientele seeking GREAT food. Your old stuff is not cutting it.
