Started off rough due to a table restaurant. The hostess and manager had a mix up for the table for us and I lost my cool a little bit. He and the staff more than made up for it and turned out to be an amazing evening. We will likely return again. Did was amazing. It was like being in NJ again for one night only. Met a great family that was entertaining. Experience turned positive. Thank you.

Quiet until four LOUD women came in at 7:00p and then you couldn't even hear yourself think.

From start to finish it was amazing. The fish special and chicken parmigiana were fresh and delicious! The owner came over and talked to my husband and I for the longest time. Our martini’s were equally as good! Only problem, we live 2 hrs away 😔

My friend and I had reservations at 6:15 we were seated promptly at a cute little table outside near the fountain. we have the fixed-price menu for Queen's feast and there was nothing on the menu that we didn't just want to get all of it . The capellini was delicious and the blackened halibut over the shrimp risotto was about one of the best things I've ever tasted it was a great evening!

We very much enjoyed Toscana, in large part because it was a nice evening and we could eat outside. (Inside is small, tight, and extremely noisy; I would never eat there.) The Restaurant Week offerings were interesting, service was good, and the experience (first time there) was quite good. Seafood salad was excellent, followed by Alaskan halibut (nothing to get too excited about), and a very good tiramisu. Parking is easy at Toscana, which they might mention on their website.

The restaurants was very nice. The staff were great and attentive. The manager personally catered to us. His name was Chafik El Maghri. He made us feel warm and welcomed. He helped us choice the best dishes. The food was so yummy. We went for restaurants week and to celebrate my girlfriends bday. I would recommend this place to friends and family. Thank you for excellent service.

Love this restaurant, but hard to have a conversation if seated in a table because it's so loud and the tables are close together. Food is outstanding, as usual!

The atmosphere was very relaxed but very nice. Dress code says business casual but saw people in nice shorts which was fine and would have worn them had I known. It was HOT that day. The service was excellent. We weren't sure where the entrance was but they saw us coming and opened the door to greet us. Immediately took our names (reservations) and sat us. Waiter was calm, courteous and patient to allow us time to decide on the menu and gave good suggestions. They have a team approach to serving your table so water was never out, empty dishes were removed promptly and courses came out in a timely fashion. Everyone was pleasant and made you feel comfortable. Never had to wait too long for anything. The food was authentic and excellent with adequate portions for upscale menu. Menu was a little pricey but what you'd expect for a high end restaurant of this sort.

Queen's Feast menu was fantastic and we enjoyed eating the PDR.

The menu had a $25 corkage fee listed, which turned us off, but we ordered a bottle anyway. We were pleasantly surprised that fee was not added to our tab. Perhaps that was for carry-out wine only? The way the menu described it was not clear.

We have loved this restaurant but we had very good and also mediocre meals. No consistency.
Service has become very poor. The “ manager” or “ owner” should stay in his office, too moody for handling service.

Ginger provided terrific and friendly service, knowledgeable about all dishes and ready to serve and always caring, attentive, and patient. The Italian food is always fresh, home-made, and piping hot. My favorite remains the Pasta Buttera, sausage in tomato cream sauce, preceded by a just-right caesar salad. My wife's halibut was thick and cooked precisely as she requested. Our dinner partners were equally pleased with their entrees. We are occasional guests, remembering the wonderful ambiance of the original brothers who served there, now just the one, who is effortlessly kind, considerate, and full of good, old world charm and good humor. When we want great Italian and well-crafted cocktails, this is where we go in Charlotte!

My husband and I had dinner here on Saturday night. We made a reservation, they seated us inside, and it was unbearably loud. We decided to move to an outdoor table despite the temperature - it was still 90 degrees outside. The outdoor experience was better from a sound standpoint, but in the end, just too hot. The food was good and service very good but overall dining experience was just so-so.

As soon as we walked into the restaurant, we were greeted with a smile! We made a reservation before hand so my friends and I were seated immediately. The table was set beautifully and the service was amazing. The atmosphere was also nice and quiet. The food was impeccable and although we did not order dessert, we were given some “on the house!” If was such a sweet surprise. We will definitely be heading back for another dinner! :)

Not as good as in the past. Good place to sit outside and enjoy the nice evening, but food has been better. Menu is tired. They need to change it up. Add Octopus to the appetizer list, etc.

For the most part we had a great experience. However initially our table was delayed in getting seated and it seemed as if they did not have server for us and ended up being served by the bartender. We had an initial waiter/host who was started taking our drink orders but ended up just disappearing midway through taking our order and never came back.

The restaurant was nearly empty at 8:30 on a Thursday but our food still wasn’t delivered to the table until 9:45. Appetizer and salad took a long time as well. Service was awful and she didn’t check on us or offer an apology for how long we waited. Food was good but not worth the prices.
