Efficient impersonal service in a boring space. Imagine dropping $ 125 pp to eat at the airport. The menu is available online, so no surprise that everything is a la carte. But come on, five button sized pieces of zucchini and a smear of root vegetable paste to accompany a $52 steak. A side dish of pasta finally showed up after half of the meal was eaten.

The food and service was excellent . We were placed as a table of 2 across from each other and if we did not scream at each other we could not be heard because of the table of six behind us . It appeared he who buys the most wine can speak the loudest .

We had an early dinner at Tosca before a theater performance at Ford's. This was an excellent choice. The food and service were excellent and our server was mindful of our time commitment. Highly recommend Tosca, especially if you are going to Ford's Theatre before or after dinner.

I often dine at Tosca for lunches and am always very impressed. I chose Tosca for dinner as it was my wife's birthday. Outstanding food and service. We were provided with a great booth and Pavel was helpful and entertaining. Tremendous food and service will keep me coming back.

Tosca is the place for refined Italian cuisine! It's a bit pricey, but worth it for a splurge evening. Love their pastas--and you can get a half-order as an appetizer. If the ravioli stuffed with short ribs is on the menu, go for it!

Best Italian restaurant in DC- hands down. Great intimate atmosphere, perfect dimmer lighting ... and the food.... it’s out of this world. Italian chefs and staff make you feel like you are eating authentic food in Italy!! Hard to find in DC.

High end Italian, but well worth it both in terms of food and service quality. Perhaps best pappardelle ever. Many pasta and meat and always fish choices. Wait staff has excellent knowledge and training. Relax, enjoy.

Tosca's has changed for the better since my last visit in 2017. No more rude Maitre d', no more mediocre pre- theater dinner. The menu is classy and the well served. My only complaint is the lighting. It is not low and romantic; it is not bright and cheerful. It is simply dull even after the renovation.

Consistently good food. I go there fairly often for lunch for special occasions, but had never been with my husband. He really enjoyed the Fois Gras and pastas.

The tiramisu is ok. It has changed over the years (was off the menu for a bit). The new version is not as good as the previous one. We felt this one has too much liquid.
