The Bronzino special was wonderful. The steak we ordered was very dry and the potatoes with it were also very dry. The Calamari appetizer was over cooked. We ate outside which was lovely and the service was wonderful. Other than the wonderful Bronzino the rest of the dinner was not that great.

It was a particularly busy night. The waitstaff wasn't really able to keep up with the crowd. We were seated right away. We were provided water right away. It took a long time for our server to take our order. I asked for olive oil container to be refilled or replaced, he unfortunately forgot. The servers bringing out the food seemed to be confused about which table they were supposed to be delivering food to. The food was delicious. We'd eat here again, maybe on a less busier night.

The ambience of the restaurant was very upscale. Considering the location, this was very fitting. My wife and I felt the food did not meet our expectations. The effort wasn’t placed into the quality of the food. This was disappointing.

Food was good, not as good as prior meals. The mushrooms in my parpadella were not cooked well and were tough. Very disappointing. Service was very good and ambiance was very nice. Somewhat noisy.

I am very picky about my Caesar salads and I always ask for light dressing and the salad with the fresh shaved parmesan was excellent. My husband had the steamed clams and he said the broth was perfect - I had the tuna tartare and it was very good. We finished off the meal with the apple tart and it was very good. However, what made the experience awesome was the server, Stephanie. She was so nice and gracious.

The restaurant is lovely, staff courteous and respectful. The food: eggplant parmigiana was tasteless and I sent it back. My husband’s bolognese sauce was nice but not remarkable. Beef carpaccio was excellent. (They brought me the salmon version by mistake, quickly replaced.).

When the reservation was made I made a comment that it was a birthday celebration.
Upon our arrival at the restaurant I again informed the hostess of our birthday celebration. It was completely ignored by the restaurant! When I mentioned it to the hostess as we were leaving all she could say was "sorry". We are not one time customers,
but it will be a long time before we return.

An unusually large area of outdoor seating and we were placed way on the far edge and after about 15 minutes of being ignored had to go ask the front desk to send a waiter over. Once we got their attention service was pretty good. Not servers fault, way too many tables for the too few waiters. The serving area is huge and interrupted by kids playing and serious amounts of people mingling at the restaurants next to the Toscanova area. Be prepared as this was on a Wednesday night, forget the weekends. Food was still good though like we remembered.

Beautiful patio, tables are nicely spaced apart. Very pleasant efficient service. I didn’t eat my fresh Halibut because it was a little over cooked to my liking. I am use to the server coming back after a few minutes of eating to check if everything is ok. This didn’t happen so I took it to go for a salad.

The place was packed. I’d even say overbooked and really loud. Impossible to have a conversation. Server wasn’t overwhelmed. We had to flag him down various times to order bottles of wine. Food was so so. Nothing special. I’ve been going to Toscanova for years given we live in Calabasas. But recent visits are declining in satisfactory.

Beautiful outdoors and quiet, all staff properly wore masks. Food was alright. Service was horrible. We were forgotten about and left many times for very long periods of time. We sat there with no drinks or food for a very long time and our waiter was not very friendly, not knowledgeable about food or drinks/wine, and inexperienced. Brought us something other than what we ordered. Very surprising for what seemed like such a nice restaurant.

This review is for an outdoor seating reservation at 6pm on a Saturday.

The setting was lovely, and both the server and manager were very attentive and apologetic - they knew the restaurant was striking out last night, doing their best to make up for it.

First, the dinners were brought immediately with the salads. We sent the dinners back - besides being too early, one of the dinner orders was wrong and one was missing - but the third salad didn't arrive until after the dinners, with some prompting. Servers continued to arrive with other tables' orders. Confusion ruled the evening, but everyone has an off night.

The food, however, left a lot to be desired. Chicken parmigiana was fairly tasteless and lacked any salt (server and manager both acknowledged that the kitchen used to oversalt and now wasn't adding any at all). Ragu sauce for gluten free penne dish tasted burnt/ bottom of the pot, and the portion was surprisingly small.

Lovely setting and staff, but three dinners with salad and one round of drinks came to $200, which is overpriced for what it is.

The server was absolutely terrible. He did not know what he was doing. he did not introduce himself. He just walked over to the table and started talking about the specials and interrupted my conversation with my business partner. he did not bring a spoon with the pasta he had to be asked. he did not offer grated cheese for the pasta which I had to ask. Overall this server should not be serving or should be trained to do a better job at his job. By the way his name was Brian.

I used to love Toscanova & its delicious food. Since Covid & since June 15th when we re-opened in LA county - I found the menu completely changed. Not very many interesting items. The food we had for lunch (one arugula salad & 2 different types of pizza) was just blah. And, the carpet around our table was filthy with food droppings as well. Disappointing. We were there at 12:30 & the restaurant was almost completely empty. Sad. I will say that our server was great though. Please bring back your great menu & excellent food!!! It is such a lovely restaurant setting & I dislike seeing it go downhill!
