It was great to experience the new interior with the same incredible food and impeccable service. The Gnocchi just melted in my mouth. Just wonderful.

Everything about our experience was exceptional. The maitre di’s welcome was warm and gracious. Our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. The setting was elegant. Best of all, the cuisine was exquisite. Refined. Imaginative. Full of flavor. Beautiful. I live in San Francisco, one of the world’s best culinary capitals. We would be blessed to have Tosca in our city.

It was fine - the food was good as always. But our server was extremely rushed and curt with us the entire evening. Her comportment was very disconcerting.

A real pleasure to dine at Tosca, great atmosphere, great service, awesome food. My wife had the burrata and the spaghetti with clams, I had the salad and stuffed pasta, all were delicious. If you go make sure you get the focaccia, they come as little rounds rather than the traditional squares from a big sheet, they were awesome! Really nice Nerello and a nice chat with the Sommelier. Highly recommended, if you want some great Italian, this is the place.

If you are looking for a delicious dinner served by attentive waitstaff in a beautiful restaurant downtown this is the perfect place. The whole evening was fantastic, especially the prosciutto appetizer, the ragu, the veal chop, and the chocolate tart. My husband’s Manhattan was also especially yummy. Great special occasion spot. Enjoy!

Still just the definition of excellence. A few menu changes (I do wish the Chitarra was still on the menu), as well as some modest remodeling to expand dining space. The food is simply fantastic: incredible quality, inventive, and cooked to perfection. Service is attentive and expert. Not overly loud, so perfect for important business meals.

Had not been to Tosca since before the pandemic. I was excited to return and I was not disappointed. Same excellent service, same wonderful food. The waiters were attentive but not at all intrusive. They offered helpful suggestions and then waited patiently for our party to decide. Everyone was pleased with their entrée choices which were cooked to perfection and plated beautifully.

The food was very good but my fish came out luke warm &
side beans & veges were cold.
Sent it back & they warmed the plate. Food was still not ho
Did not do anything else because the rest of the table were finishing their meals.
It puts people in a very awkward position.
Unacceptable for a $40 plate.
Waiters are very attentive but we felt rushed.

I go out to eat alone a lot when I am traveling for work. This was one of the best solo dining experiences that I had. Everyone that worked here was so nice - which was so refreshing because I had a very bad day prior to dinner. Everything was perfect and my server, Djoko, was very attentive and kind. The entire staff was attentive and kind. The atmosphere was great, I got the Burrata, ribeye, baby carrots, and chocolate tart - all of which were amazing!

Ordered half servings of Chef’s special cheese stuffed tortellini and Cavatelli along w focaccia to start. Very tasty. Then the group of women with an infant in a stroller and a three year old got seated directly behind me. The cartoon on the phone behind me, while it kept the child occupied and quiet, ruined the ambiance for me. Then we enjoyed the Branzino and Brasato di Manzo and added a side of Brussels. I would have enjoyed our experience more if we had a table of adults behind us.

Cavatelli and focaccia were my favorite dishes.

Tosca is a DC jewel!! The staff is excellent, friendly and always helpful. The ambience is incredible. But the food is simply incomparable. The dishes are prepared with excellence, love and artistry. If you could only choose one restaurant to have an incomparable meal, you must choose Tosca. Always great, never disappointing!!

This is the experience I was hoping for after reading reviews. My husband loves Italian. It was our first time in DC and I wanted him to have a truly wonderful dinner that was memorable experience. First off the service was on point. We arrived way early for our reservation and we’re still seated with little wait. There was a small seating area next to the bar that was comfortable and intimate. Then our waitstaff met our every need and we’re friendly and helpful. The food. Oh my. The food. Best gnocchi ever! The risotto was good/great. My husband’s veal chop was perfectly cooked and generous portion. Honestly I have had a lot of octopus and my preference is for it to be highlighted within an entree. Unfortunately the sauce overpowered the octopus instead of elevating it. But the pistachio sundae was so complex with so many layers! Thoroughly enjoyed the light delicate and complex flavors of the ricotta, ice cream, pistachios, cherries, crumble, dark chocolate, etc. Mind blowing and perfect ending to a wonderful meal. What a gem of DC! Five stars!

Tosca is back and does not disappoint.
Paolo, Jonathan and Lisa welcome you at the door with a friendly smile. Unlike so many dc restaurants Tosca feels more local and unique. The menu changes and evolves but always fresh and beautifully presented.
The Chic new design spares no expense and feels young and current. Can’t wait to go back for more.

The music played and the noise level coupled with no table cloths hand changed the dining experience. While the food quality was good the Friday night vibe was not one of fine dining.
