The food was lovely, standard Italian fare cooked well. Unfortunately it was very cold and windy sat outside, and when we asked for an empty table closer to a heater we were informed that this was booked. As it transpired this table was not occupied for a further hour. In addition to this the staff spent half of our meal carrying tables and chairs over or past us to continue to set up as they hadn’t done this prior to the start of the dinner service. Hopefully these are just teething issues and they will be resolved as they did have a negative impact on the experience. In terms of value for money the restaurant is about 20% over priced. £60-70 each for a local Italian which could easily have been £100 each if we’d had some more wine.

We arrived early evening and were ushered into a table not far from the door with the restaurant virtually empty. Staff seemed to find it difficult to close the door on a cold night.

This less than auspicious start continued for a while, it was difficult to get an apéritif and order whilst it was made clear the table was ours for only 90 minutes. Despite these difficulties the first courses were both very good, although the capesante was a little too overladen with garlic.

The second courses were also very well presented and tasty, in particular the osso buco with saffron risotto. The crisp Sicilian white wine was reasonably priced and served without undue ceremony, an adequate accompanying libation.

I passed on the dessert where the choice was a little too limited.

All in all a most agreeable occasion, staff had a simpatico nature which more than cancelled an earlier échec.

We had such a good evening. The food and wine was delicious. The staff were so accommodating and lovely; we sat outside due to the covid restrictions but never felt forgotten about at all. Will definitely be going back as soon as possible! Thank you!!

I dined last week for my birthday and had the most amazing evening! The food was delicious and such good value, along with the wine list too. We both managed 3 courses and the staff made a fuss for my birthday which was so sweet. Our waiter was very attentive too and offered limoncello! Will definitely be revisiting and recommending! Thanks all! Xxx

We were able to sit outside in the sun, a good start for a Mediterranean meal. No problem with traffic/passers-by.
The staff were helpful and polite, nothing too much trouble, and the food was so fresh and delicious.
Would really recommend the sea bass and vegetables, with huge prawn on top, it melted in the mouth. Recommended wine complemented meal too.
Looking forward to the next time.

Toscana was very nice, good interior, tables well spaced out and the service was excellent, albeit we visited during early evening when it wasn't full yet.

Food was great, prices reasonable for the area.

A great night for a party of eight people that presents some challenges. The staff were courteous, prompt and quick to identify the guests who required some extra special attention (my mum and brother) making every one feel special and cared for. A great night. One of the best restaurants I have ever been to.

The uneven service was surpassed only by the poor quality of the food. From the starters, which were over seasoned, to the main course which was so undercooked it was inedible. This was our second visit, hoping to improve upon our previous visit, but this experience was worse. They will not get a third try...

They owners were kind enough to accommodate a booking late on a Saturday night and for one member of the party to arrive even later. Nonetheless the service was impeccable and the food very good as always.
