It’s always my favorite place. The food is superb and they really care about the customer. They have the best lobster in garlic sauce. Enjoy!
Cosistently excellent Italian cuisine in this neighborhood gem

Fabulous dinner and service as usual.
Food is delicious as always.
Awesome restaurant, have been going for decades and never disappoints.
We’ve been coming here for years but not since Covid. Have taken out a few times but tonight we dined in and it was spectacular. The lobster special is always a treat. No one comes close
My favorite restaurant! Delicious food. Always love the specials. Excellent service. They have amazing outdoor dining as well.
I haven’t been in years but was recently told by a friend that it was really good. I was taken about 20 minutes after my reservation time so we didn’t start out good. We sat outside, they have made a very nice area in front of the restaurant for outdoor dining. Water and bread came promptly. The device was very good. I ordered an off menu special of chicken scarpariello, I wan not impressed, there were no garlic, lemon or rosemary flavors. All traditional scarp flavors. I had one small slice of a potato and 3 what looked like breakfast sausage links. This was a miss. My wife had the branzino filet which was prepared very well. Some mixed vegetables under two filets. I had a glass of wine and a Caesar salad. $114.00 with tip. I found it to be a little on the high side for this level of food preparation.
Still, the service was good and the menu varied with many daily specials. I do recommend the restaurant, just not the chicken scarp.
Was once a special place now quite ordinary . Outside is nice. However put us in a very busy spot by the door said nothing else was available , so were heard everything. Within 15 minutes 2 separate sets of people who walked up without reservations were given better tables .
Love it here will always return
The linguine vongole was not what I expected as there was sand in the clam meats. The pasta should be a garlic, lemon and white wine base but it did not taste like that. I am not sure what vegetables were added to the pasta but it did not complement the dish at all. I was very disappointed with this dish as I had higher expectation for it.
I’ve been coming for 30 years since i was a child with my family . There is a reason it’s still a fave.. the food, the staff and quality all around
It was a fabulous meal! Great service! Delicious food! A truly beautiful dining experience! We can’t wait to go back !🎉
Food is amazing! I had the branzino filets!!! Mouth watering!!
I keep coming back

Dine 4-5 times year and always get a great meal. In addition to menu rher are specials. Staff very friendly yet professional. Never had a bad meal. Or experience. Suggest reservations
We are blown away by the kindness and hospitality. But especially the amazing food. You must get the mozzarella. Definitely out of this world! Outdoors is beautiful!
We ate outside on a very hot evening. The food was excellent, service great, and always interesting specials. The zucchini flowers were fabulous. With the heat and the zucchini flowers , I might have felt like we were in Italy, except for the annoying train noise. It was some kind of slow moving maintenance train that ruined the ambiance. Otherwise, dinner was excellent
Amazing food and service!
Perfect menu, excellent service, wonderful food. A real jewel
This is one my most favorite restaurants.
Always looking forward to dine there.
Food is amazing and consistently great, so is the service.
Exceptional Italian food, great waitstaff, and pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommend for a special night out.
I do not understand the negative reviews. Last night was perfect. Greeted by the owner and all of the waitstaff. Every note was hit. So many wonderful choices that you could never go wrong. A romantic experience for all. Thank you for the wonderful dinner.
Always reliable, always attentive staff and you can count on fresh and innovate foods. Not to fret you will find lots of favorite standby's as well. A don't miss if you are in the area.
Food was excellent.
My Mother Angela had a wonerderful 87th birthday Dinner with my wife and me at your great restuarant ! (Miller and sam were fantastic)
My favorite restaurant ever! The food is delicious and the staff is so kind and gracious!
Wonderful as always!!
Very enjoyable evening. Food was delicious and atmosphere was very pleasant
Food excellent as usual. Mediocre service which was a shame and detracted from the overall experience.
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!
Il Toscono was excellent. My wife and I had the grilled ribeye Steak, and the lobster with Spaghetti. Absolutely Delicious!!
