There was a birthday component to our visit so the experience might be skewed by that but overall, the personnel here are the consummate professionals. They don't ask if you are finished if you leave your knife and fork in the 4:00 & 8:00 positions but picked up your plate if they are both in the 4:00 position. They do not take your knife off your plate and leave it, they provide a new one. It's the little things like that help create a wonderful dining experience. The food is excellent, no surprise there, as is the wine selection. The owner visits each table periodically to ensure your are taken care. This is truly a fine dining experience.

another great meal, as expected, wonderful service, and glad to see they are busy, this was on a thursday evening, we had a nice quiet table early, then a party came in-so noisy-people, keep your conversations down so everyone can enjoy themselves, and hear what the people are dining with are saying, but up until a lovely meal

This was the perfect place to celebrate my Dad’s 85th birthday. They had a card ready for him; and at the end of our excellent meal, brought a complimentary dessert with a candle. This restaurant never disappoints!

The mussels were so tender and exceptionally tasty in a flavorful broth perfectly seasoned and accompanied by grilled bread. We had two different pasta entrees which were both cooked perfectly al dente. My ravioli was stuffed with a heavenly, cloudlike ricotta and my husband’s tagliatelle Bolognese (a special order they graciously accommodated) was again, delicious. Service was excellent. Atmosphere always upbeat and friendly. A lovely night out. Well done!

We had such a nice meal. 3 ladies out catching up. Had a delicious special grilled avocado and beet salad with salmon. One of the staff chased me down in the parking lot bc I accidentally left my debit card behind on the table. We sat outside bc weather was great.

The food and service here are great. A table in close proximity to the bar area can be noisy, making normal conversation difficult.

It was our second time eating at Toscana and came back because of the quality of the food. Unfortunately, like the first time the service was less than desirable and by the same server (Ryan) and Mitre D was not very helpful either. So sad, Good food, great setting and mediocre service.
It is as if were abandoned to our luck.
There won't be a third time.
We hope owners paid attention to this.

I wasn't sure they got us confirmed for OpenTable, so that is a bonus...as I forgot to tell them. Toscano's is always consistent and very, very good! We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.

The restaurant was so good that we ate there two nights in a row. The ambience is wonderful. They have indoor dining but we sat outside in the patio dining near the beautiful fountain. The crêpe myrtle trees also have a little white lights in them. We highly recommend the restaurant and the food. The wait staff were very pleasant and efficient. The owner came to our table both nights to check on us. I had the pomegranate martini both nights so I can’t tell you anything about the rest of the drinks but it was fabulous.
We highly recommend this restaurant. Also right next-door to it is the Renaissance French bakery. It is open for breakfast and lunch and it is fabulous —a truly French bakery. You must try both!!!

I was pretty underwhelmed with the dinner. We hadn’t been to Toscana in several years but I remember it being a special date night place to go. The outside atmosphere was really nice, despite me being bitten by a few mosquitoes. However, the food was good but nothing incredibly special. We ordered the raviolis and the sauce was a little bland while the Penne with shrimp was better. I think if you are going strictly for the atmosphere, it’s a winner. However, in my opinion, there are many other great Italian restaurants in the area where the food really shines.

Amazing food, as always. They were sold out of the halibut (which is a Charlotte favorite!) but actually was a blessing cause it forces me to try the scallops over risotto, which was unbelievable! The patio is absolutely delightful. Service is impeccable. Seriously would not change a thing!

We had a table outside and it was delightful. Food and service both were quite good. We thought the meal with only one glass of wine apiece was a bit pricey, but not exorbitant.

Overall a very pleasant experience

Toscana continues to be the go to for fine Italian Dining in Charlotte. The service delivered is fist class/outstanding/attentive and not rushed at all. The food is of the highest quality, fresher pasta and seafood.
