We had a great evening at Tosca. The food and service were outstanding, and we were so happy to see Jonathan again. So glad Tosca is back - better than ever. Bob M
It was a great dinner overall. The service was top notch. Wines were delightful (Chianti and Barolo). The burrata, Dover sole, and agnolotti were delicious. The salmon was good but served in a red sauce that overpowered the dish. The star of the desserts was the Sicilian sundae altho the tiramisu was also good.
Food was superb! Service and atmosphere fantastic! Can’t wait to return.
The staff made it a very special occasion. Will suggest to others
Great food, service, and hospitality. Look forward to going again
Excellent service! Delicious Food!!!!
Outstanding experience. Great for special occasions.
Pasta is amazing the short rib pasta , the soft shell crab appetizer was exceptional and the duck was superb
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!
Food and service above and beyond most dining g experiences!
Overall great experience! Food was on point and hospitality was their main priority!
The food was incredible. From pasta to dessert, it was just wonderful.
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!
Everything about dinner was A+ from beginning to end. Food even better than we remembered from prepandemic days.
As always, Tosca never disappoints! It is wonderful to have our favorite restaurant back and as delicious as ever.
This restaurant never disappoints! Exceptional food and service. They also have one of the best Italian wine offerings in DC.
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.
So glad Tosca open again. Truly excellent service and food and a great place to have a conversation with someone. Still one of the best in DC.
Back and better than ever
The new reinvented menu is exceptional and original...The service was impeccable and the new decor is very chic!
Wonderful to see one of the city’s best restaurants cooking again. The redesigned dining room is quite beautiful and the quality of the food was 5-star! Jonathan and the rest of the team are awesome
Service was great. Decor is a little dated.
It was so nice to be back at Tosca. One of the best Italian Restaurants in Washington DC. Great service, good food and finally more tables taken. I hope it will be back to the good old days soon!
Fantastic food, wine list, and wonderful staff, loved it so much we went back 2 nights running, both wonderful experiences
Always the best. Never had a bad meal. This night, however, it was even more exceptional.
Excellent- Mille grazie 😊
People need to go back out to their favored restaurants. Tosca deserves more clients. Such an amazing place!!
Excellent service, excellent food.
Terrific lunch - wonderful service - beautiful presentation - attentive staff - thank you!!
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!
The service and food is extraordinary moreover they will willingly create a special meal if you simply request it. This is one of my go to business restaurants in DC
Paolo greeted us at the door graciously. Angela was a wonderful waitress. John gave us great recs on Wine. A wonderful dining experience from top to bottom.
Splendid experience. High level Italian restaurant.
Tosca amazes every time. Food and service are just spectacular. Cant wait to return....
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
Food was excellent and a bit different which was nice. Service was impeccable
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.
If you love pasta this is your place absolutely fantastic!
when my office was nearby Tosca was my hands down favorite. It was great to have a revisit. The food was superb (my swordfish was perfectly prepared) , the service likewise.
