I reserved table INSIIDE since I’m 91 & can’t tolerate heat. When we arrived (on time 6:45) we were told there weren’t any tables inside.I went inside to sit at tiny table near the bar. I could not stay outside any longer. My son—in-law waited for host to clear up situation. He finally said it was ok to stay at the table where I was sitting. As I rated the food tops, service excellent! Could have been a more comfortable setting!

We have dined at Il Toscano for years. Sunday's dinner, however, was a total disappointment in every way.
THE STAFF WAS RUDE. When I asked if the AC could be turned down "a bit", because a breeze was blowing on me, I was told the AC was not on, but the front door had to remain open due to Covid restrictions. When I inquired if the table across the room, in a corner, was available, I was told, "No, that table is reserved for 6. Would you like a blanket?" In another comment, I was asked, "Would you like to see us closed down like the restaurant up the road?"(BTW, that particular table was not occupied that night.)
SERVICE WAS POORLY LACKING. No one approached us to ask if we would like a beverage and when our waitress came to take our order, she said, "I think you heard me tell the next table tonight's specials". Although pasta was ordered, it was not followed by an offering of Parmesan cheese, as is customary.
THE FOOD TASTED LIKE LEFT-OVERS FROM SATURDAY NIGHT. The bread was stale, Our salads were unrecognizable. My shrimp were hard and did not taste fresh.
We have not frequented restaurants often during the past year and were looking forward to our dinner at Il Toscano with great joy and anticipation. It seems, however, that Il Toscano is a out of practice and needs to bring their "game" back to their past glory. However, for us, we will wait a while. Sunday dinner was disappointing.
Thank You.
