    Excellent Excellent. Started with excellent cocktails and Avocado grilled starter which was excellent. I never had it prepared this way and was excellent. Pizza and Angel Hair with shrimp is a Must! I normally do not order Angel Hair spaghetti but the Server who was Outstanding suggested it. A Home Run! The tomato sauce was perfect! Outstanding service and staff. I must highlight the Host , at the end of our outstanding meal and evening, I had a WiFi issue and I was in need of a way back to my destination. I went back and asked for assistance assuming she would help me with a taxi or a service and She went OUT of her way . We are so grateful and thankful. Excellent staff, service and Food!! Thank you

    We’d used them for catering before and take out. Hadn’t been to the restaurant in a while. Went there for a family dinner before my daughter went back to school. Great meal, really unique options in their menu. Great atmosphere. Nice but not too fancy. Will definitely go back.

    Great local place. Nice menu and really good food. Nice wine selection. Service was great. Eaten here a number of times over the years and always very good. This last time the house salad was disappointing as it had some old wilted parts but overall dinner was good.

    Quiet night at Toscona as it was a Monday evening reservation. Enjoyed cocktails in the bar and then moved to dining room for dinner. Calamari ap was great, octopus would be better described ad cous cous salad with a little octopus in it. Entrees were well portioned with more then enough risotto or base sauce. Will return on a weekend and see how it is.

    Ahi tuna was amazing!!! The heirloom tomato salad was tasty, but not 14.00 worth of tasty… I should have had the Caesar salad… that said, dinner was delicious, Jamie the hostess was as sweet as can be… she’s one of the reasons ( her, and the grilled octopus) that we eat at Toscana 3-4 times a month… wonderful dining experience…

    Even though we arrived early, were seated immediately. We ordered an appetizer along with our drinks and it was quickly delivered and very good (Grilled Avocado). The food was delicious, hot and delivered at the appropriate time. Our server, Cortney, was very informative and helpful as well as timely. We had a great experience.

    As always, the food and service were excellent. Jamie was sweet as can be getting us seated and settled, and Connor was very attentive and efficient. Food came out perfectly presented, and extremely delicious… Toscana is a favorite restaurant… we eat there several times a month… my only challenge ever is finding entree sized dishes at an 18 to 20 dollar price point… I usually have an appetizer ( pulpo is a particular favorite) and a salad… but a little more variety at that level would be nice… we’d be in even more! And for the record, the lamb special tonight was amazing…

    We have frequented the restaurant for several years and have never had a complaint until now. Our standout issue with the experience was the music! It was obnoxious and poorly chosen. Ambient, wordless music is what restaurants should play. At times we felt like the music was on par with kids bop and lyrics competed with conversations. Next gripe, have your servers wear one color or consistent uniforms. It just felt unpolished and too casual. The hostess (or bartender - couldn’t tell which position) was in a totally inappropriate outfit for work which was an Incredibly revealing onesie that left nothing to the imagination - time for a managerial meeting and dress code.

    We always have a great dinner at Piccolina Toscana. The wine pours are some of the most generous we’ve seen locally. The food arrived at the table piping hot. My husband and I shared the grilled avocado appetizer and eggplant side. With our entrees, this was more than enough for dinner. We both agreed each dish was excellent. It was nice to be in a restaurant that included families, couples, small groups and large groups. All seemed to be having a great time.

    Wonderful service from our lovely server Grace. Started with the pulpo appetizer and even our dining companions tried octopus for the first time and liked it. Our entrees were all excellent from the hefty and juicy porkchop, to the the delicate butternut squash filled ravioli, to the branzino. We brought our own birthday cake and there was a $2/person plate charge. The dining room was quiet when we were seated at 5:15 but diners continued to arrive. However the atmosphere was subdued enough to have a conversation. Highly recommended!

    First time back to this restaurant in about ten years. The menu has a large variety of foods I usually enjoy. The preparation and taste were enjoyed by all. Look forward to going back soon. I give this restaurant an A+. The service was impeccable. Our server, Grace, was gracious and a pleasure to be served by. She answered all our questions regarding the menu entrees. She made our visit enjoyable and pleasant.

    Ran out of core menu items before 6 PM, pizza took a bath in olive oil and service was a bit slow. Not the best showing for one of our go to places. This was the first time I looked at the Check and felt we received less value than was reflected in the total. To sum up our experience last night, we left disappointed.

    The restaurant was featuring a three course dinner for $35. The choices were limited but covered a wide variety of palates. I had the meatball appetizer, bucatini with seafood entree and tiramisu for dessert. All three courses were great and delivery was perfect. Two of us had dinner and wine for under $100 with tip - a rare occurrence these days.
