Tosca was outstanding! Every bite of every dish was delicious. We order three handmade pasta dishes, all of which can be ordered in half sizes to try more, and we would recommend the lobster ravioli, the tagliatelle rabbit ragu, and penne lamb ragu. You really can't go wrong. The scallop appetizer was also delectable. And finally we ordered the branzino, which was delicious. If I had to do it over, I might get all pastas because they were just too good. Try Tosca for a special occasion!

Spectacular meal, excellent service, and lux but friendly atmosphere! We enjoyed a relaxed pre-theater meal and had no problem with our ala carte order being synchronized with the prix fixe order. Our waiter, Jose, was everything a professional should be! The food was as luscious. Highlights of the evening: the generous portion of prosciutto di Parma with a burrata that rivaled any we have had in Italy and the chef's specialty ravioli filled with shortribs. We'll return soon and regret not visiting sooner!

Excellent choice for a pre-theater dinner. The menu had a nice choice of selections. Price was reasonable and service was prompt, but not pushy. There was a private party in the area adjacent to our table which increased traffic around us.

I had dinner twice at Tosca this past week. The first time I ordered the pasta with white truffles, the pasta served to me was not tagliatelle . The second time we had a guest invited to dinner who ordered the whole wheat pasta, she was served a half portion ( had ordered full portion) and we were charged for a full portion.

Love the place.

This restaurant had been recommended by our hotel. We were not disappointed. The food was well presented and tasty and the wine by the glass good if not remarkable. However, the coffee was the best we have had since being in America.

Excellent service, great taste.
I like her ravioli much. As specialty, grilled tuna was served by market price, reasonably. Although afogart is not on the desert menu, they made it upon my request, and her demonstration to finalize it was also enjoyable.
We enjoyed the visit very much.

The evening started out well. Seated promptly, water served, waiter came up to introduce himself and tell us about the specials. He had some good suggestions; ordering 1/2 portions of an appetizer, and the primi pasta. Secondi was the fresh halibut (boring). Second diner had the scallops for the appetizer (B+) and black lobster ravioli (B). Items were fresh, but not exciting. Just as we were finishing up our meal, our waiter was given a party of 7, and we were completely ignored thereafter. 15 minutes later we ask the host for our check, never having our waiter return to our table, although he passed it several times. No tip was left.

Tosca is a high-end Italian restaurant that does an impeccable job in its execution of menu items. The pastas are fantastic. And this visit I enjoyed a braised octopus that was outstanding--perhaps the most tender octopus I've ever eaten. The only downside is the price-tag and the smallish portions! It'll be an expensive night out--but definitely worth it for a special occasion.

I had heard that Tosca had white truffles in season, so went for that purpose. The waiter could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and the truffle risotto was wonderfully memorable!

This place is great for a business lunch or a great dinner. It is quiet, the food is excellent, service is very good. It is not the cheapest place in town, but for a special occasion or if you have that company credit card, it is a great choice. The apple turnover for dessert was off the charts!

Place was very nice and elegant!!! My only downfall was that we asked one of the busboy a question, and it seemed like he didn't understand, and when I looked at him he went to another busboy to talk to him and it seemed that he was talking about us that we did not know what we were saying. Also at the end of our dinner I felt like we were rushed to get out.

Food was good as was the wine. Service was excellent. I loved the salmon. My friend was not too fond of the Halibut. We both loved the ravioli appetizer which we shared. Restaurant was very noisy (this was a Wednesday night) and continued to become even noisier as time went on, which made the dinner experience hard to enjoy. We thought the dining experience here was not worth the $250 tab (tip included).

Dinner at Tosca,
The 8 of us had a lovely dinner at Tosca Restaurant for my husband and 3 classmates and their wives at 50th anniversary for the medical class of 1967. The food was great and the staff was wonderful. We shared the arugula salad. Then I had Fettucini with Bolognese sauce and my husband had Ravioli del Plin, both of which were great. One of the other members of the group had Alaskan salmon which came with peaches, and braised corn, which she enjoyed. We had two great wines a FONTERUTOLI and ARNALDO-CAPRAI Grecante which we had with the meals.
