So my review should be taken with a grain of salt... it was Valentines and maybe the crowd was part of the issue. My salad was missing elements as described. The main course was strangely constructed. The dessert was not well thought out. I have always been a fan of this place and Dan, but this was not a great experience.

It was a great meal but they really need to update the decor. The leather on the booth is cracked and dry rotted and for a fine dinning meal I don't want to have to sit on old cracked leather

My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful meal before going to our school's winter formal. We were able to eat filling meals and reasonable prices that left us full and satisfied. The restaurants lower lighting made for a more intimate setting for nicer conversation while we enjoyed our meal. The waitress serving us was lovely and happily split the check three ways even though it left her dealing with some odd numbers. Overall, I had a great dining experience and would recommend Piccolina Toscana to everyone.

The service was very good and we didn't feel rushed. My husband said "it's like being in Italy where you take your time eating, talking and enjoying the moment". The food was very tasty. Big difference when it's homemade. Best of all the portion sizes were proper. The apple tart dessert was fabulous. A great finish

Restaurant was rundown and I took the waitresses recommendation of the ravioli for my entree. It was horrible. My husband didn't care for his bolognese meal either and he can't stop talking about how he will never go back.

Food was great my only complaint is that there aren’t any gluten free options. I would eat here again of they had gluten free since I have a sensitivity to it. Also, they need to put new locks and knobs on the restroom doors! A man walked in on me and talk about embarrassing and uncomfortable! If they want to come off as up scale, fix that issue!

Celebrated Christmas Eve ... have done the special 'Seven Fishes' option now for past several yeas. Always enjoy it!! Dan does a great job with his dishes. We especially like that he is present and with his staff!!

And the service has always been very good ... even with a rush. Our waiter, with his extra special Christmas suit and pleasant smile, made the evening more enjoyable. And while the tables were a bit tight, we had pleasant guests on either side and great conversations resulted.

Will be back!!! And not just for Christmas by the way!!

We were disappointed comparing to the Feast of Seven Fishes menu we had 2 years ago. The first three courses seemed rather mediocre. We did not care for muscles prepared with so much bread crumbs or the fish sticks made with baccala. We felt they were sub-standard for this restaurant. The pairing wine did not appear with the meal either. We understand it was crowded and the wait staff was very busy. We were nearly finished eating muscles when the wine came at last. Then the fish sticks came while we were still eating muscles. However, the last two courses were delicious as we expected. The dessert did not go well with the previous courses, mint chocolate covered peanut butter. We would prefer something light and refreshing rather than the dense peanut butter.

We had a great Xmas Eve dinner with the family of four. Service was great and they were super helpful with my wheel chair bound mother. I had s cold so could not taste much but there were good reviews of the tortallini, braised beef and salmon. My daughter with Ciliac disease was happy with the choices.

Sunday brunch is wonderful. Lovely presentation, plenty to eat, all delicious. One of us was lucky enough to have the tortellini which is so good I am sure this is the way its originator intended it to be, light as a cloud and brimming with flavor. Everything we ate was just fabulous. I highly recommend it.

I always forget how great Toscana is. And then i go again and wonder why it's been so long! There were 3 of us and we all shared. For apps, we shared caprese salad (mozzarella was light and airy and coated with pesto), tuna tartare (fresh big chunks of tuna with avocado and wasabi) and polenta w mushroom ragout (best polenta i've ever had!). We also had a di parma pizza and short rib raviolis. Everything was absolutely scrumptious. Service was fantastic! I'm sorry I've ignored you and taken you for granted my dear Toscana.... It won't be so long again!!

We had our holiday lunch and were excited to be there. However, the service wasn’t good since we walked in the door. It took over 15 minutes for the waitress to come to the table for drink orders and even longer to place our order and get our food. When we arrived there was one large group and two other small parties- so four tables altogether. The food was great

When we sat down we were told that on Sunday's it was a buffet and a limited menu. Not one to particularly like buffets, I was a little disappointed. We took a look at the buffet and decided it looked pretty decent. I'm so happy we went that way. Everything we had was really good - especially the beet salad and mac & cheese - I went back for seconds on both! The petite desserts and delicious coffee topped off the meal. Very happy and would definitely return.

Had an absolutely fabulous meal last Saturday night. The lobster soup , my starter was beyond delicious and so flavorful . Large pieces of lobster were swimming in a tomato broth instead of the typical white cream soup. For my entree I ordered the trout which was served over small potatoes morsels, peas and mushrooms. It was a fabulous and memorable dish. And I even had dessert which was the apple crostata. Thin sliced apples were nestled in a light and buttery pastry and topped with vanilla ice cream. Dessert was well worth the calories
Head to Toscana for your next restaurant dinner. You will be glad you did

Where do you start? The glasses were dirty and broken, the drinks were made incorrectly, the furniture was shredded and stained. The Caesar salad was wilted and brown. The raviolis were tough. The waiter disappeared half-way through the meal. We had to ask for the check multiple times. A very poor experience overall for what used to be a great restaurant.

If you're going to be an Italian restaurant then you need to serve the classics. The menu is way too limited. Food was good but should be outstanding for how limited the menu is. The service was very attentive without be annoying. Would have given a higher score if the menu was better.

Less than stellar evening. Put aside, however, the broken table, access to only one menu for table for 4 and gritty Caesar salad, the food was acceptable. We all decided this was a one off evening and plan to not give up on Toscana.

Run down since our last visit. The seat coverings were peeling off and unsightly. The food was below expectations and past visits. Nothing special and overpriced. Gone are the veal specials and fresh vegetables. The server was pleasant and tried her best but the place is not what it used to be.
