Long an important part of the DC fine dining scene, Tosca has returned in style. The staff is gracious but not obsequious, knowledgeable but never interrupting. The kitchen still kicks it. Welcome back!

Tosca was outstanding! I loved this place before the renovation but it is truly spectacular now and very "refreshed". Paolo and Lisa at the front desk are always accomodating, remember names and treat everyone like royalty. The food is elegant yet simple Italian. Our waiter Guilia was witty, fun, knowledgeable and professional and delivered excellent service with a smile.

This was our first return to Tosca and we were delighted to find a renovated restaurant and a new chef and some of the same familiar faces. The chef did not disappoint. The service was attentive and on point even though most of the wait staff is new and has had only two weeks to learn. The buratta was silky and just the right amount of pesto to accompany the tomatoes. The pastas, are we think the star of the show and the half orders of short rib pasta and the clams vongole were just delicious, we thought that the short rib pasta would be too heavy for a summer menu but were pleasantly surprised to find this not true. The clams were fresh and delicious although a bit salty. The crispy duck and the branzino were outstanding and simply plated. We look forward to our next dining experience. So good to be able to dine in this wonderful restaurant again!

Tosca has reopened and is poised to be the next big hit in Washington's growing culinary scene. Seriously good Northern Italian cuisine from new Chef Phil Marzelli, a second-generation Italian-American who previously served as the executive chef at Fabio Trabocchi’s Casa Luca and Sfoglina Downtown. The impressive newly renovated dining room and chic bar and lounge is a welcome change and with close proximity to the vibrant City Center shops it's the perfect match. Many of the original seasoned staff have remained bringing knowledge service at a very high level. Tosca should be commended for their staying power and willingness to keep changing offering exceptional Italian cuisine.

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.

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.
