We sat outdoors and the weather was perfect. It was a birthday celebration and the restaurant was very acknowledging with a card and dessert.

Toscana has been my Charlotte favorite forever, so it was a delight to return this week after moving out of town. Food always perfect, service so delightful. Can’t wait to go back again!!

This is one of the most consistent Charlotte restaurants for many, many years and brings authentic Italian fare that makes you feel like your in Italy. Do not miss the light and decadent Tiramisu!

Toscana is one of the best if not the best Italian restaurant in Charlotte. The food and service is excellent, the wine list is pricey and occasionally you get a real noisy crowd. There are also several spots in the restaurant that have steps which can catch you unaware and would be easy to trip and fall.

Overall a great dining experience.

I am a foodie and make my Italian home in Parma the center of gastronomia. After forty-four lengthy trips, I have a good handle on food from Sicily to Trento. The Tuscana cucina was on target and authentic. I only had one complaint. The price (in my opinion) was $$$$$ when it should have been $$$$. Would I return? Only on special occasions and for this reason I doubt if there will be much of a wait line on a regular basis.

We just moved to Charlotte, NC from New Jersey. We were a little concerned about finding a good Italian restaurant. Well no need to worry, Toscana is fabulous. Authentic food, generous cocktails and friendly service. We love Toscana so much, we ate there three times in our first week in town. Enjoy!

This is our favorite Italian restaurant when we travel to Charlotte. The quality and presentation of food is consistently excellent - we enjoyed the Branzino (evening special) and the veal picatta. The sommelier recommended an outstanding Amarone. Sandy is a terrific server! Thank you for another amazing evening!

The manager or owner was very nice and accommodating to our strict dietary restrictions which are vegan and my wife also has to limit salt to a minimum. Everyone was friendly and took excellent care of us plus the food and ambiance were exceptional! Will be back and definitely recommend to my friends, family and colleagues as well as clients!

The food here is excellent, tasty, and attractively served. My husband and I split the Ensalada di Giorno, which was an exquisite mix of arugula, beets, and burrata. Don’t miss it! He ordered the Mare, which is our all-time favorite mix of fresh seafood with pasta. Delicious! I ordered the veal piccata, which was a bit tough, although still tasty. The sides it came with—sautéd spinach and potato wedges were very nice. We ordered two lovely desserts and enjoyed the best cappuccino ever to cap off the meal. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Charlotte. The food is always good, the service is nice and there is a pleasant local feel to the restaurant. The only drawback is that it is excessively noisy.

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.

Toscana is one of my favorites restaurants. The service is consistently good and the food is always delicious, no matter what I order. We sat outside on the beautiful patio next to the fountain. Our waiter recommended a wonderful wine. I had the Branzino which was so light and fresh and my husband ordered the pasta Positano. I highly recommend Toscana Ristorante Italiano.
