Tosca is now back in full swing with some of the finest Italian appetizers, entrees, pasta and desserts. My gnocchi was outstanding and the veal chop ordered by my partner was tender and perfectly prepared. The wine list is ample and the prices are excellent. Martinis' were cold and dry. Some excellent redecorating and remodeling and same great service and cuisine.

Every meal at Tosca is special. The salad misti was just perfect, with sweet nectarines rounding out the crispness of the vinaigrette. We all had branzino which was simply grilled and embellished with white beans and brown butter which is all perfect fish ever needs. I ordered the sundae which was the best I’ve ever eaten and I’ve eaten a lot of ice cream and gelato in my time. The goat cheese gelato was smooth and mildly sweet and studded with amarena cherries and bits of lemon peel. It was served with a delightful wafer cookie and a beautiful design of dark chocolate!!!

One of the great restaurants in DC is open again. TOSCA took the time during the pandemic to totally redo its interior into a calm and luxurious setting to enjoy gourmet food. The restaurant also took the time to bring on a new chef who has raised the original outstanding menu to new highs. The Italian flare remains with new dishes and new interpretations. It is like going to Italy when you dine at TOSCA

Really a fabulous treat to be pampered by the excellent waitstaff at Tosca. Also the seating was great with a perfect noise level. Food was very strong--the pasta special with fresh truffles is a must try.

The food and service were incredible! The restaurant was a little cramped and loud; we had to move our chairs to let people by. The cacio e Pepe was truly amazing even though it was not 100% authentic. I highly recommend keeping it on the menu. We will definitely be back.

Tosca is my "go to" restaurant when I want exceptional Italian food that expertly prepared served in an atmosphere of quite elegance (without being over the top). Each person encountered within the dining experience performs as they have only you in mind.....I love the "welcome" appetizer that we get was we sit down (this time it was stones of Tuna Tartar).....the wine list is big enough to accommodate any taste with an ample numbers of wines in the price range where I do not suffer any pain.

My wife and I went there with our long time friends for out 52 anniversary....we started out with the Panzanella and two orders of the Aged Prosciutto and Heirloom Melon.....moving on we had a second course of Agnolotti del Plin (Braised Beef Short Ribs), Gnocchi, Pappardelle (Classic Veal & Pork Bolognese Ragu which is one of my all time favorites) and an appetizer portion of the Charred Spanish Octopus. A red and white wine was paired for us and each provided a delicious compliment.

We had intended to get a third course but the servings were such that we decided against it and opted for desert, cafe, and an after dinner wine.

My family loves Tosca and is glad to see them open again!!!

The food here is really exceptional. Subtle flavors with well designed presentations. We went with my younger kids and were underdressed - I would recommend collars and socks at least. However, the staff remained cordial, attentive and just the right hint of playful in their interactions with my kids. It’s a really solid evening out.

I expected a higher quality in my taste experiences. I dine routinely at other restaurants in Virginia and Maryland for a third of the price and receive better quality of taste experiences. The wine and espresso were the only items that met my expectations.

Willingness to please customers is not what it used to be, (for years!) For example, it used to be possible to have the veal chop done “alla milanese”. On two recent visits I requested it and the reply from the kitchen was, “No, too much trouble to flatten the veal chop.” I used to be able to get chocolate sauce for the gelato. Reply, “Non c’è.”

Mid-week lunch with a dear friend was lovely. The restaurant looks beautiful and the food was delicious. Pasta with clams and grilled branzino with spinach, both dishes perfectly cooked and presented. Plus we could talk easily in a calm and quiet atmosphere. Very glad Tosca is back!
