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.

My absolute favorite restaurant. Love, love the food which is consistently great.
My favorite is the lobster, the semolina crusted jumbo shrimp, lasagna bolognese, ribeye steak OMG, practically everything. And desert is the Napolian. My mouth is watering just writing this.

They have the most elaborate outdoor seating that I have been to yet. wood floors, fans, heater, thermostatically controlled. despite having a reservation we had to wait almost 30 min for a table. as we wanted to sit outside we had to wait outside. Both the owner and the waiter said it would be a few minutes, it was 28. there was no apology offered. I never understand how a good businessman doesn't appease customers with a bit of goodwill like a drink, or dessert, etc. It basically costs close to nothing but shows customers that they care that customers were put out by the extended wait. Goodwill does much to show, in any business, that the customers are appreciated.

They need to stop that main door from slamming each time a waiter exits to serve the customers outdoors. After a while, that’s all I could hear.
