I have always loved Toscana and have eaten here multiple times. It had been a few years. The food was excellent. Great flavors and perfect sized portions. Our service was very slow. It wasn’t that the food took a long time- that part was fine- it was our server who just seemed to forget we were there. We were there at least 30 min before ordering. He just seemed to not notice. But overall we had a nice evening and will definitely return.

We had a wonderful dinner out on the terrace. We were celebrating an anniversary, which was asked about at booking but not acknowledged in any way. It is no big deal not to acknowledge, but weird one would ask if you were celebrating anything special and then ignore the answer.
Food, service and wine all very nice.

We visited on a Wednesday afternoon and sat outside. The beautiful weather was matched by a wonderful meal; from appetizer to dessert was perfect! We brought our daughter and son in law who have proclaimed it there new favorite in the Charlotte area. Small tables, excellent service and phenomenal food-wish we had one in the Charleston area!

Toscana is a very pretty, nice decor and ambiance but the actual service was off and food gave my brother food positioning. When we arrived, me and my husband were a few min early for our reservation, we walked in and no one greeted us or said anything at all even though 3 servers were just standing at the entrance talking to one another. After a good 10min someone who worked there finally talked to us and seated us at our table. We never had anyone introduce themselves as our waiter/waitress just seemed odd like we were an inconvenience to them. The rest of our party showed up a few minutes after we were seated and still no one asked us if we wanted appetizers or had questions (normal stuff at a restaurant). Overall it was a very weird dining experience, I had to ask the hostess who our server was or who we could order from and when we actually ordered the waiter was just rude about our questions since my dad had some dietary restrictions. After all of that my brother ended up getting food positioning later that night. We will probably not be going back.

I am a huge Toscana's fan for over 15 years. Lunch, dinner, special occasions.. One of my go to restaurants. This was the ONLY time I did not like to meal and the food was not up to their high standards. I am chalking it up to the big crowd on Mother's Day and the end of COVID lockdown. I will be back but I am not sure my extended family will since they do not have the history.

Food was simply outstanding. My wife and I have been to many Italian restaurants in Boston and NYC. This is right up there in the top group of them
Service was attentive and quick yet he did not hover over us. The place had out door seating. Indoors had that upscale Italian restaurant vibe. We live in Greenville SC and have been here 4 times. All were fantastic. Veal piccata, eggplant parm, burrata with prosciutto, cheesecake were all highlights. We will be back the next time we are in Charlotte

The food was good but quite expensive for what it was. We had reservations and sat inside which is quite outdated and ok but the outside area looked very nice. I would have rather been outside but the wait was long as
It was first come first serve. The service was ok, nothing special and it did take a while for our food to be served. I’m glad we tried it , overall we enjoyed our meal but there are better Italian restaurants with better food, nicer ambiance that cost less.
