Superb date-night dinner before the theater. Wonderful, attentive service - careful without being obtrusive. Excellent menu and excellent advice from the waitstaff on selections and wine. We will go back to Tosca!

Tosca is a reliable choice for a great meal and the ability to have a quiet conversation. The service is also top-notch. This visit, I enjoyed the branzino crudo and cavatelli with a rustic lamb ragu--both fantastic! The wine list is also noteworthy for some reasonably-priced wines with lots of character.

Food and ambience excellent.
Servings a bit on the small size.
Service very good although a bit over zealous in clearing table before dinner plate
was finished

Came for pre theatre and everyone
Thought food was good. I asked
Waiter if music could be turned down
As it was too loud. He did so, which was good. I think another dessert
Should be added beside two gelatos
And Tiramisu....they need something
Else more interesting.

The food was delicious, but our server was a bit impatient and had an attitude.
Also, we didn't appreciate attempting to seat us at the worst table when a number of good tables were available (we had a reservation)

My husband and I had tickets to a play at National Theater and decided to have dinner at Tosca before the show. We were very pleased with the choice. The ambiance is very pleasant and comfortable - not frenzied like so many restaurants these days - so it was a relaxing experience, and we could easily have a conversation without shouting. The service was outstanding — friendly, helpful, and attentive, without being intrusive. The delivery of the courses was timed well, so that we were able to comfortably finish our meal without feeling rushed. We both had the 3 course pre-theater diner. The food was delicious and attractively presented. The grilled barramundi we had for the main course was particularly nice - grilled to perfection and served over a bed of vegetables. It was filling, but did not leave us feeling stuffed. Prices are a bit on the steep side, but we felt the pre-theater dinner was very good value for the meal we had.

A classy downtown restaurant just two blocks from Ford's Theatre, serving three-course early bird dinners at 5 pm, allowing diners to easily finish by 7 pm, and take a five minute walk to Ford's Theatre, arriving at 7:10, easily making the 7:30 performance. Use valet parking, but when you leave the restaurant, do not retrieve your car. Instead, retrieve your car at 10 pm, after walking back from the theatre. So, just ONE parking fee all evening, instead of two. A no-brainer - unless it is raining, of course.
Only downside. Average first and third course. Very good entree. But worth the $45 for three courses. Especially if looking for a convenient, upscale dining destination near Ford's.

Service was fantastic. Food was terrific. Wine list was pricey and a little intimidating because there are so many Italian wines on it but our waiter helped educate us and we ended up with a magnificent bottle that paired perfectly with our meal.

Tosca is the perfect combination of great food and a relaxed, quiet atmosphere for good conversation. The pastas are exquisite--and you can order half portions as an appetizer! The wine list also has some reasonably-priced selections.

Nice place, but the quality of their meat needs improvement. My wife's venison chop was so tough, she had to send it back, and my veal chop was good, but very fatty. The appetizers and pasta were outstanding as was the service. I recommend this restaurant for the service and food with the exception of the meat entrees.
