Toscanova Ratings and Reviews
Truly great Italian food at the remodeled Westfield Century City Mall. Authentic Italian cooking from a wide selection of appetizers to entrees. Best Risotto Milanese I've had since my grandmother made it years ago. Short ribs are also amazing as is the lasagna. A perfect spot for a casual or business lunch or dinner anytime.
The receptionist needs to be trained to be welcoming and to listen, including following reservation requests. We were very pleased with the service and our food choices which ranged from soup ton salads to calamari. The wine choices added to the enjoyment of the food.
This was my second time to this location, the first time was excellent, this time was the opposite. Our waiter Mustafa, was very impatient and rude throughout our meal. There were a group of 5 ladies and we were enjoying our conversations and every time he came to the table he was rushing us and trying to upsell us. The food was good but it was very noisy and we felt like we were just a table and not customers. We won't be back.
BOYCOTT THIS RESTAURANT! I had a business lunch with a good client of my law firm. He ordered grilled chicken and it came extremely dry; literally like cardboard. I ordered the Dover Sole and it was fine. He pointed it out in a very friendly (and almost apologetic (he's proper British)) manner to the waiter. The waiter took his grilled chicken dish away. It took literally 20 or more minutes of waiting, and his meal did not come as I had no choice to but eat my Dover Sole while he stared at me (and trying to make polite conversation), while his place setting remained empty and bare. I finished my entire meal by the time the manager Christian (aka "Cristiano") (whom we had called to the table) came over. We complained and insisted on my client being served and that h is meal be "comp'd" for the embarrassing wait. Cristiano brought over a Dover Sole (twice as expensive) and REFUSED to comp the meal. He became belligerent, aggressive and loud, waiving his hands about and continued to refuse to do anything whatsoever to ameliorate the situation. We explained that I had to finish my meal "alone" and now that my client is being served, he will have to eat his meal "alone" while I stare at him and try to act polite in this awkward situation. The manager, Cristiano, did not even offer my client a dessert or coffee "on the house," for the troubles. Horrible and abusive service, and I will NEVER bring my business to Toscanova again. I was a long time customer and they have lost my business and that of my clients and business associates.
The gnocchi was served immediately and delicious. However, our entree was mistakenly served to the wrong table. The couple decided to keep the osso buco and the branzini. As a result, we waited at least
another half hour or forty minutes for our entrees to be served. The waiter and matte d’ kept coming
over and apologizing. The entrees finally did come and were excellent. The waiter gav us desert on the house because we had to wait so long for our entree’s . We sat on the patio which was it as noisy as the restaurant. We will return but not for awhile,
We had a bad experience with the service Food was fine but, waiters were absolutely rude . When you asked for a glass of wine and the waiter forget and he brought the wine just after all the food has been remove because mostly all of us were finished with our meal and they didn’t thinks there was not a big deal and the waiter talked back to you ..,.,,
There is something wrong with the service.
We will not be back
I’ve eaten here a million times, but they missed the mark badly this time. From no one to fill water, to slow response, to a special osso bucco that was rubbery, not much good to say about this visit. I should have gotten the short ribs, which are consistently good. Ce la vie.
I have been going to Toscanova for many years including the use of their private room. The food has always been good and the service friendly and efficient. However on Saturday we had a bad experience. Due to the increased traffic and parking issues at the newly renovated Century City Mall I would recommend avoiding it on weekends. Parking was impossible and service was deplorable. We had a very innattentive and rude waiter who paid no attention to the fact that we told him we were going to a movie and actually made us late for it. If you’re going for the food go midweek and go early.
The service from the waiter was awful. We were sited but were never acknowledged by the waiter. I had to raise my hand and asked who was our waiter as I’m accustomed to have a waiter introduce himself in a 4-5 start restaurant. He had a really stuck up attitude and said in a very sarcastic manner “I am”. Really rude arttitide and not professional at all, all night he ignored me and would only acknowledge my wife! Very childish... would never come back here nor recommmen to anyone.
The waiter was so busy , after we placed our order 35 minutes later he came back and told us one of our dishes is no longer available , we were 4ppl . We were sitting outside and we asked him to turn the heater on , he was annoyed ... we asked him again , he finally did it with an attitude . We will not go back.
The worst dining experience we have had in years if not ever! We arrived on time for our open table reservation and after 15 minutes wait we were seated out side, which was fine. It took 20 minutes for someone to offer us water. We ordered our drinks at the same time and my husband was served the wrong tequila. The waiter apologized saying that the bar was shorthanded and making a lot of mistakes.We , ordered appetizers, and nearly 25 minutes later received the appetizers along with our first course all at the same time. We asked them to take back the first course so we could enjoy the appetizers. When our soup and salads were brought out we had to ask for silverware. As for dinner, my husband seafood pasta came out with a fishy smell and my lasagna was not quite hot. The manager and waiter came over to apologize profusely, again, explaining how they were shorthanded and the manager offered to take 30% off of our bill and offered free coffee. Really?? We won't be back!
