Italian
Il Toscano means “The Tuscan”, and is a perfect representation of everything I am, and all that I love about my home land in Italy.

My name’s Matteo – head pasta maker, chef and owner of il Toscano. I was born and raised in the countryside of Tuscany, and although I’ve now lived in Australia for over 9 years, my passion for all things Italian has never been stronger.

Nor has my passion for sharing it with Australia and the Central Coast. I noticed that while there are a lot of outlets serving Italian food up here, they’re largely not hitting the mark when it comes to quality, authenticity and traditional local Tuscan food.

Our mission is to bring people together for an amazing Italian experience with good food, wine and good times and share with you my strong passion and our local traditional cuisine as if you were in Tuscany.

    The place is small, warm and winter cosy, nicely decorated and the lighting was very comfortable. Table for two was perfect in size with lovely table cloth. The food was nice in flavour but found the pasta a bit too soft for my liking and the portion was good for women but I think my husband would have to order entry, lucky I went with a friend for her birthday. Service was excellent, very friendly with plenty of attention to give you updates when your dish is supposed to come.

    Service was great. Was relatively busy and food wait times still remained short. The bruschetta and 2 pasta dishes we ordered were delicious. Had a bottle or red too 🤌🤌. Restaurant has a good feel and we enjoyed our night. Would recommend for a date night.

    Found the pasta dishes ( all 6 in our party agreed) very salty and gluggy. Way too noisy and tight indoors. Couldn’t justify the prices because the value wasn’t there. The waitress was charming but a tad impatient. The idea of the place sounded perfect but just didn’t deliver. First and foremost when you require credit card guarantees for bookings, and have fairly high prices on wine and food and no option to BYO, your food has to be delicious. It just wasn’t. Hope the criticism helps…
