Cucina Toscana Ratings and Reviews
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.
This restaurant is top notch, and the best place I've been to Salt Lake. The service is excellent, which pairs well with a vast number of specials available. The menu is properly sized, comprising of dishes composed with careful attention to detail. I highly recommend the cheese sampling plate, which is composed of some of the best cheese I've had. Pair that with a proper wine from the vast wine list and you're in for a treat. Drinks do not disappoint, and the New York Sour I had was simple perfection. I highly recommend this for a upscale occasion.
Great dinner! For our foodie family, it was perfect. We have wine lovers, healthy eaters, and kids with developing pallets. They met all needs, graceful accommodating ages ranging from 3- >60). I would highly recommend (unless you're looking for chain restaurant food).
We went to the restaurant with the reservation and they were closed. No sign no nothing. I even received the confirmation earlier in the day for a reservation. Thankfully we found Valters Italian restaurant which was amazing. We've eaten at Cucina Toscana before and it was very good but unfortunately they were close.
First time at this restaurant. When we first enter it has a fancy feel, with tablecloth and furniture (casual dress code). Host was very friendly, as well as the waiter. Offer different specials as well as explaining the Italian menu (need to read the description). Capesante appetizer was great need extra great to dip and soak up the butter sauce. All our entrees were very good, would recommend thee Veal chop special and the lobster seafood in a similar cause as the capesante. Both mixed seafood special was also good. Definitely leave room for dessert. The custard, lava cake and the gelato are a must. Bottom line is the everything we had that night was all great. My kids wanted to lick the plate. Plan on going back soon..
My wife and I only go here for special occasions as the price is quite a bit more than your average dine-in restaurant. However, I have yet to get a bad dish. Each time I go I get one of the specials and have got something different almost each time I've been. I've been here about a dozen times and have seen the decor change twice. Service is usually very good but you never know. This last time it was a bit under par. I don't go for the service, I go for the food which is always meets or exceeds expectations. Pretty sure the menu was written by Valter Nassi who now owns and operates Valter's Oysteria. They have a very similar menu. I have been to Valter's several times and while the service and ambiance there is nicer it comes with a larger price tag and I feel the food is not as consistently amazing as Cucina Toscana's. I know this sounds funny but for high end dining value this place beats Valter's IMO.
Business dinner on a Tuesday evening. Good options, I really liked the smaller Italian appetizer portions you could get in advance of the very filling primary meal. Wine was a little "blah" on options, I would have expected more by the glass Italian wines (it is an Italian restaurant), but all in all everyone agreed it was a repeat for next time we are in Utah.
We always love coming here! The food is amazing! I always get the 3 pasta sampler and this time I got the tiniest serving of truffle capellini, it's my favorite, so I was a bit disappointed. It was also very stuffy and warm. Need some ceiling fans for air circulation! Never the less we were more than pleased with our experience! Delicious as always! Love the extras they provide on house like bread with dipping oil, bruschetta and hot chocolate with biscotti! It's a really special place!
Wonderful food. Respectful staff. The downfall was how small our table was, it barely fit all of our plates. Also, the staff makes fresh salads for you in a bowl, and it is very noisy. Every time the staff made a new salad for a table near to us, our conversations were taken over. Otherwise the food is top notch. We come here on our special occasions.
Our evening from beginning to end was fantastic. Because of 2 accidents on the 15
( we live in the Lehi area) we were running late. The hostess assured us our reservation would be preserved., and it was. We also asked for a romantic table than first chosen and that was also
not a problem. Our hostess was friendly, professional and accommodating.
To be honest we used to frequent Cucina Toscana when the manager/ maitre d was a man
named Valter. He was so involved and proud that most of us thought he owned the establishment. He'd come to each table, make sure all was right and treat everyone like family.
He started his own restaurant which is very overpriced , especially for it being in Salt Lake
and we decided to try the restaurant after 2 years of waiting and see if it still had the magic
they had when Valter was manager.
We were not disappointed at all. The room is elegant but not stuffy, the clientele was hip but
not where we felt as over 50 we didn't fit in. The staff ,,,every single staff member was attentive and friendly.
Our server Javier was fantastic. He came and greeted us, got to know us a little , our food
likes and dislikes. He seemed proud to tell us about the night's specialties.
When he came over to the table to personally mix the Caesar dressing we could really see
what a pro he was ...so delicious , perfect.
My date had the halibut special , that was cooked perfectly , with a sauce that you just wanted to dip the delicious bread in.
I had the Chicken Parm which wasn't like the dish I grew up on in Long Island New York
but was magnificent. Even the side of spaghetti was cooked perfectly , which seems
to be so unimportant to other "Italian" establishments in and around Salt Lake.
We were very happy with the meal, the restaurant and the entire experience and plan to go back again and again.
We actually thought we were making a reservation for a different Italian restaurant, and realized our mistake when we arrived. What a wonderful error! The food was absolutely amazing and the service was first rate. We will be making our next reservation on purpose!
