    We found this on Open Table so decided to try it. Great choice. The place is a bit too noisy but service was excellent. I had the beet salad and the garganelli pasta with mushroom pesto. My wife had the misticanza salad and the cavatelli with basil pesto. Both were exquisite. Some gelato for dessert topped it off. Expensive but worth it.

    I have been to Tosca a few times pre-COVID. I was served by Julie who was very good & raised my expectations for the evening. My starter was fine, as were the aperitif and wine. However, I regretted ordering the veal chop. It was tasty and perfectly done in parts but uncooked nearer the bone. This elementary failure was very disappointing as this dish was touted as being one of the specials of the day. There was nothing wrong with the veal as such but the chef did this meat a disservice. Although I was given a discount on the main course, it pained me to see (and taste) such a beautiful cut inadequately cooked. This is an expensive restaurant and should really have done better. The cheese course salvaged something of my dinner but I may need to be persuaded to return.

    Everything at Tosca was well above average. The service and food were exceptional- the tasting menu is an excellent way to just sit back and have an incredible dining experience. The wine list is not ridiculously oversized and is priced fairly.

    First time visit and the food was fabulous! Couldn’t have asked for a better meal. Everything was fresh and flavorful. Will be back for sure! Wish I took photos of the rest. Foccacia, prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella were a nice start. The Budino was my favorite, but the cheesecake did not disappoint.

    Not worth the money. Food good to ok. Hit and miss. Beet salad was exceptional. Burrata salad - mediocre. Focaccia - overpriced and tasted like pizza doe. Pasta - way overpriced, but high quality. Smaller portions. Tiramisu tasted like grocery store diet pudding. Good gelato though. Service - ok, occasionally good, but not excellent. Nice hostesses. Table service was slow, timing of the dishes off, had to ask for some items repeatedly. It was cold and drafty where we sat in the dining room. Overall, DC has many much better options for dining.

    I usually come here for dinner with clients every quarter or so. Last night I got the pasta which I typically don’t eat, and it was delicious! Perfectly cooked al dente and the filling was so flavorful. The tiramisu was good, not great, a little sweet for my taste, but I still ate every bite. Service was impeccable as usual. My client also got pasta and it was delicious and perfectly cooked. She got the cheesecake and it was amazing. I wish I had gotten it.

    The food and wine service was very good and attentive, and the seating was very comfortable. The style of the chairs does not support hanging a purse, so it’s the lap or floor. The food itself was excellent, and good cocktails and wine by the glass options. The noise level was very very high, requiring us to lean in a lot - but we were happy to see a full dining room on a Saturday night in downtown dc. Also, for those looking to dress up a little for a Saturday night occasion, there is virtually no dress code so very mixed visual experience.

    Love Tosca. The food and service is always outstanding. The waiter sat us at the back of the "special events" room because it was quieter. However (unfortunately) there was a very noisy table behind us. We were so thankful when they left and the noise level went down to "normal". Otherwise a memorable experience.

    Continued excellence. I’m often asked why don’t I venture to other restaurants? I respond, are these places you recommend better than Tosca? Their response - silence. I’ll keep coming back though I don’t live in the immediate area.
