                                  The lobster Toscano was DREDGED in garlic, I couldn’t get past the third bite, my husband tasted it and agreed, when I complained to waiter, he was rude and said “we’ve been doing it this way for 20 years, our customers love it”. I said “well I can’t even eat it” He bagged it for me and said “go home and sauté it in more butter and wine”. He was truly rude. I’ll never go back. Plus….we had 7:15reservations, there were no tables available inside, we had to eat outside, it hit 90 degrees that day. Hot and uncomfortable.

                                  The food was excellent. We had a great chopped romaine salad. Lasagna Bolognese was very good with a nice balance of meat, cheese and pasta. We also had lobster out of the shell prepared in a very flavorful sauce. This dish was excellent. We finished with some very nice home made ice cream(chocolate chip and cherry) Highly recommended

                                  Lovely meal at a long time favorite. They have tons of nightly specials that are usually the best options although some menu standards (such as Lasagna) are legendary. Nice wine list, friendly waiters.

                                  We at il Toscana last night for my husband’s birthday dinner. It’s been one of his favorite restaurants for 25 plus years. We sat outdoors and had Miller as our waiter which only added to the experience. Wonderful meal and service as usual!

                                  We love Il Toscano. We go for my birthday and our Anniversary every year as well as other times with friends. We always have a great meal whether we get the famous lasagna, fabulous lobster with garlic sauce or any of the fish dishes or special mushroom ravioli. Can’t say a bad word about this place, which is rare for me. Lol

                                  We have been going to Il Toscano for special occasions for many years. While it was never inexpensive, it is now priced as if it was a Michelin Star restaurant. The food never disappoints, service is decent by $80.+ entrees is a bit much for this establishment. Don't think I 'll go back. Be prepared to spend $150. per person for dinner with 1 drink and no wine.

                                  Great place. Food seems better on weekends as opposed to mid week.
