Tosca serves Northern Italian cuisine in a
lovely elegant dining room setting a few blocks south of city center. Expect the best pastas and fresh seafood selections. Sophisticated international crowd and locals make for an interesting and lively Evening at Tosca. Request Angela or Yodit ...,.
Both excellent servers with full knowledge of menu
and somehow manage to make the evening move along effortlessly despite restaurant at full capacity. It’s truffle season and you are in for treat. Chef Rinaldi is at the the top of his game at Tosca. Enjoy!

We had a fantastic evening by reserving the chef's table which sits in the kitchen, off to the side, with a full, unobstructed view of everything going on. Chef Rinaldi then came out and welcomed us and made an 8 course, custom meal for the 5 of us. Amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to do something very special for someone. A unique experience, and not just for foodies. A class act all around with excellent service from the main floor staff. It wasn't noisy, the kitchen crew worked tirelessly and never argued or yelled and our whole conversation could be heard by everyone at the table. Almost all restaurants I go to now are FAR more noisier than this experience. Kudos to Tosca for creating such a wonderful experience.

This was a wonderful dinner and perfect experience! We had excellent service! I ordered the swordfish and my hubby had the veal chop. We added a half serving of one of the pastas to share as well. All of it was beyond wonderful. Would highly recommend!

Tosca never disappoints. The food consistently is a standard deviation above other high-end restaurants. It is expensive but worth it every time.

Tosca was a lovely start to our theatre evening with our daughter and son in law. We enjoyed the prix fixe option and the choices were diverse and interesting. One of our party has a gluten allergy and had absolutely no difficulty choosing an appetizer, entree and dessert. The wait staff was very helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating. Dinner was excellent and we felt very comfortable with the seating arrangements. Thank you Tosca for a wonderful dining experience!

Tosca has a very welcoming atmosphere. Knowledgeable wait staff, efficient service, suggested wine was excellent. Grilled swordfish was moist and well seasoned, also excellent. Our desserts were spectacular. Even when the dining room was full, it was not noisy. Very good acoustics. I recommend Tosca with 5 stars.

Everything was superb
The veal chop was outstanding and we decided to add the alba truffle to it which I would recommend
The smoked paprika cauliflower soup with crispy radicchio chips awed me
Service was world class
Thank you Tosca!!

Overall an ok experience. But when you order a filet medium/well and you get it medium rare, complain about it and you just got “oh well” I don’t think that’s the service level you expect at a restaurant like that!!

A friend recommended this restaurant and they were on target - elegant ambience, attentive service, and amazing food. Will come back next time we are in town. Reminiscent of our recent trip to Tuscany without the 9 hour flight.

I live in San Francisco where we have 5000 good restaurants to choose from. (When I say “good” I mean good, because the bad ones don’t last!) However we don’t have an Italian restaurant that comes close to equaling Tosca from location, ambiance, service and, most importantly, the food. Tosca is far and away my favorite restaurant in DC.

Nice well appointed restaurant in DC. Authentic Tuscan menu. Pricey wine list. Great service. Food was good but not on the level of higher end NYC restaurants.

Always truly amazing and authentic polished Italian cooking. There is a great wine list compiled by a very good wine expert (John) who was good to confer with on wine choice, which was outstanding. We believe that this is the best Italian restaurant by far in DC.

Tosca exceeded out expectations. The white truffle risotto was outstanding. All the dishes were excellent. Great ambience in smart surroundings. Very happy with the Sommelier's wine choice. Excellent service and would certainly recommend. It is costly but not expensive bearing in mind the quality of the food.

Delicious food, wonderful ambiance and excellent service. We had reservations for 5:30 and took advantage of the pre-theatre menu. I had the branzino and my friend had the scallops and they were both amazing. We had the gelato with the berries for dessert. We will return!
