A great local spot for inventive Italian food. Fish was expertly prepared and creative use of vegetables. Steamy garlicky lobsters kept coming out from the kitchen! Everyone at our table loved their food. The noise level was high on a Saturday night and service a bit too slow for my taste.
The food and the service were absolutely fantastic until the end of the meal when the waitstaff was clearly rushing us out of our table. It was past 9 and there were only a few people waiting at that point. The check was delivered without being asked. Our napkins and everything else on our table were taken away until there was nothing left on it. I could understand it if we where there for an inordinate amount of time but that was not the case. I will go back but never again on a Saturday night.
Food and service was excellent
Long wait. Unusual. It took 30 min to get a seat despite our reservation. It took 45 min to get our food. Service and food are excellent. Just a very long wait for food. Not their usual.
The waiter was terrific, and our food was prepared perfectly. Great food! Great company!
We have patronized Il Toscano for years and find it very people-friendly.
We especially like the small, private alcove (just big enough for four),
where we can relax, chat, enjoy the food. It is like a small private dining
room, away from the hustle and bustle. and we always find creative,
new dishes on the menu
Il Toscano is a long time favorite and we welcome the chance to dine here when we can. We were a party of 7 and recently visited on a Sunday night. The Sunday night dinner special is a hands down steal at $42.95 for a 3 course meal. Ample choice of appetizers and entrees and portions are substantial. We all enjoyed a varied selection of appetizers (the fried calamari portion per person could've served the entire table) and we all opted for the Lobster Il Toscano with large, meaty chunks of lobster. Il Toscano has maintained its high standards of service and delicious food for decades and never fails to deliver!
We have never been disappointed with the fabulous food offerings at Il Toscano. Our favorite is the lobster special and is a dish that we rarely pass up when we have the opportunity to order it.
The restaurant is a busy place with a packed bar, filled with eager diners who are waiting for their table to become available, but, needless to say, it is always worth the wait!
Plan to dine early or late . . . just avoid an expectation of sitting down at 8PM for an 8PM Saturday night reservation. It is nearly impossible to achieve, but we continue to come back over and over again.
Food was delicious, as always. The specials, asparagus soup and Halibut were exceptional. Lobster signature dish & rack of lamb were also excellent. Their Napoleon is my favorite on the planet! Also splurge on the gelato - chocolate chip with cherries! Our waiter was funny, pleasant and helpful! Love this place!
We were there on a Saturday night. Food was delicious but we felt a bit rushed. Had a 6:30 reservation, so they were probably anxious for our table.
Never disappoints...the food is delicious and Alex is a wonderful waiter.🤗
We've dined here several times and have always been very pleased with the food and the service. The staff is very attentive and pleasant. I would recommend this to those who are looking for a nice Italian meal.
Great selection sat down right away a little cramped but what the heck it’s a great place. Loved my meal as ALWAYS!
Coming here over 25yrs never disappoints!
The food and service are always wonderful here! We had a fabulous dinner and were never rushed to leave the table. Great atmosphere. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was wonderful and the service excellent. Graciously offered sample hors d'oeuvres. We had a nice meal with friends from Manhattan who came by LIRR and easily walked across the street! Always worth a visit.
The food was exceptional. We had an 8:15 reservation and arrived around 7:45 knowing it would be busy. Much to our surprise, we were seated within 10 minutes. The service was outstanding and only outdone by the food. The entire experience was first class and we look forward to going back again!
Always enjoying being there!
We Love this place! We come here for every special occasion
Whilst it was an acceptable dining experience it wasn’t anywhere near outstanding. I ordered a rib eye which wasn’t to my liking. The other entrees were fine. The service not so much.
First time and won't be the last. What a great jem.
Had a delicious anniversary dinner with our family last Sunday evening
Everyone was happy with their food
Staff was attentive
Food was great
Terrible service very loud very expensive and not that great won’t return
Service and food were excellent. Reserved small private room for 6, felt like we had restaurant to ourselves. We do a yearly dinner with friends there and it has never let us down!
Received a GC and heard good things about it so we planned dinner and movie. Arrived at about 6 pm and we were brought upstairs to a nice comfortable table. Ambiance was nice. Reminded us of a restaurant we dined in in Venice a few years back. Service was crisp and friendly. Food was excellent and well worth the higher than average prices. The whole experience was a perfect 1-1/2 hours and we never felt rushed as the dining rooms filled up around 7pm. This is a great place for a date and they also accommodated large tables for special occasions. We Dine out often and will definitely be back to Il Toscano.
Consistently great food. Everything we ordered was delicious and the waiters are excellent.
The food is excellent, and the service is top notch, far exceeded our expectations.
This was our second visit and it was just as wonderful as the first time, the food was delicious, the service was wonderful, and the atmosphere was great!
My husband and I went to Il Toscano with another couple for cocktails and dinner and had a wonderful evening from beginning to end! Can’t wait to revisit for another fabulous experience!
My now fiancee' and I have been to Il Toscano many times. The food has never disappointed and did not on this occasion. Miller, our waiter, is very knowledgeable regarding the wine list and he has never steered us wrong. It was the perfect setting after our engagement. Reservations are a must on the weekend. The maitre d' should look more closely at the reservations. I'll give him a pass this time since it was such a busy night. I highly recommend Il Toscano.
Beautiful and authentic Tuscan cuisine where the food and service is outstanding! The seared foie gras for starter was incredible and their lobster dish for main course is amazing. Recommend to order the lobster out of the shell - either way it's fantastic. Great wine menu as well. The Nero D'Avola Feudi del Piscioto from Sicily is amazing if you like heavy full bodied wines. Great dining experience - highly recommended
The wait for the food was more than 20 mins. At the end the waiter chases out the door because he wanted more tips. No reason for that.
Food always great service VERY slow maybe they were overbooked
The food was okay., but very overpriced. My main issue was the service. It was SO SLOW. I waited 25 minutes to get the check. This place is a one and done. I won’t be returning.
Service was not up to par. Waiters did not deliver food to proper customers.
Food was excellent, service was professional. Can't wait to go again.
The food here is always superb, as well as interesting--always something new. The scallops appetizer was exceptional, as was, as always, the calamari fritti.
Foods and service are excellent!
Never disappointed by a meal at Il Toscano! Impeccable food and service.
birthday celebration. good food. good service. i enjoyed it a lot. will go back anytime.
