We were treated to a wonderful dining experience. Dean, our waiter, extended a personal "welcome" to us upon our arrival and then the wine list, dinner and dessert menu provided selections that made for a great evening. Dean's service was excellent! He was professional but friendly and very accommodating. The after dinner, homemade Sambuca was a real treat. We will be back to the Tuscan Bistro!

Our dining experience was perfect from beginning to end. Waiter and service was excellent. My meal was one of the best I’ve had all month. The signature Grilled romaine salad was amazing and so delicious- I’ll be back for that again! Can’t wait to come to Tuscan Bistro next April.

Despite staying in the neighborhood for many visits we had not visited the Tuscan Bistro because of its former use as a joke of a place. We found friendly, attentive service and excellent food. All in my party enjoyed their dinners. I selected the clams casino, which were delicious. My Osso Buco entree was a delicious treat—rich, tender and very flavorful. The gnocchi served with it were a great accompaniment.

We visit Naples annually and will be back. We will also tell our friends who visit to dine at Tuscan Bistro.

We haven't been here in several years, and we think it has changed owners since...the meal was pleasant and not overpriced. The server put in a special request on my choice so it wouldn't be too spicy, but I wouldn't order it again. It was their signature chicken entree, but it tasted sour to me. My husband enjoyed his veal entree. The atmosphere is pleasant, and the restaurant was full while we were there. The bar was full too, which means it may be a popular local gathering spot. The server never checked back once the meal arrived - a small but important omission. We will go back; it is a good everyday meal kind of place.

The Tuscan Bistro has been a favorite of mine for years. Whether it is dinner for two or I host a night for 16 with my Food and Wine Group, food and service are always fabulous! Evening meal on Easter Sunday was no exception - We loved it!

We could not have been more pleased with our dinner at Tuscan Bistro. Our friends ordered the calamari for an appetizer and I have found this dish to be disappointing in most places these days. However at Tuscan Bistro the calamari was light and not at all greasy. The accompanying sauce was just right and the portion was plenty for 4 of us. 2 of us had the cavatelli bolognese - real bolognese, not meat sauce just named bolognese. Another had the veal chop and the other the tortellini. The veal chop was tender and cooked to perfection and the tortellini was delicious. We had spumoni for dessert and were delighted to see a unique presentation right for 4. All in all our meal at Tuscan Bistro was one of the best meals we've ever had in Naples (Bonita Springs.) We will definitely go back and spread the word about this fine spot.

Wonderful meal. The grilled Romain salad is what we look forward too. I had a fish dinner that was a special and my husband had the noodles with scallops and shrimp. both meals were delicious. You must try the lemoncello cake, out of this world. Service was excellent.

The Tuscan Chciken was outstanding, especially the dark meat. The Osso Bucco was tender and very flavorable. The only criticism is we couldn't have separate checks for the two couples.

Excellent, friendly, knowledgeable service. Casual, romantic atmosphere. Food was outstanding, veal shank, chicken piccata, veal saltibocco, cavatelli bolognese, all delicious and well presented. Waiter very helpful with wine selection. Prices were good, a bit less than other establishments, with much better food. Oh, and the limoncello cake was amazing! There were 4 of us, separate checks by couple. Dinner for 2 of us , with appetizers, 4 glasses wine, 2 dinners, coffee, dessert and 20% tip came to $140.

I'd driven past Tuscan Bistro many times but never eaten there. But it was on the way from the movie theater to my condo, so I made reservations for after the movie. My friend and I split a house salad. She had veal piccata and I had veal pizzaiola (which was what I'm used to seeing listed as veal cacciatore). Both enjoyed our meals very much. The veal was done just right and the sauce was very tasty. Our server was outstanding, with just the right level of attention and a friendly attitude and smile.

WE WERE AT THE TUSCAN BISTRO EARLIER IN MARCH. . WE SAT ON THE LEFT SIDE AND HAD A WONDERFUL MEAL AND A FABULOUS SERVER, THE SPECIAL , THAT NIGHT, WAS BRONZINO. IT WAS EXCELLENT!!!! O WOULD HAVE RATED THE EVENING WITH 5 STARS.

When we first arrived at 5:30 the parking lot was empty. We thought hmmm.....did we make a mistake selecting this restaurant? We stayed and I’m so gladwe did. By 6:00 PM it was full and the food was excellent. Waitstaff was courteous and knowledgeable. We took our time enjoying our dinner and never felt rushed. The reviews I read before selecting this restaurant were accurate. Great choice.

My eggplant parmigiana was ok. Don’t think we would go back.

The food was very good. The service was confusing. It didn’t seem as if there was enough waitstaff, yet we had 2 different people waiting on us. Staffing seemed to be a bit frenetic within the restaurant-all over the map. Overall the food was good but make a reservation.

Service was poor. Waiter provided minimal service and interaction; did not pour the carafe of wine. Did not come to each of our party of 6 to take our order.
Nightly special of Sea Bass was luke warm. It came back hot but fish was tasteless and covered in a sour, green pesto sauce.
Told waiter my wife could not eat and said he would take off the bill but never apologized, ask what was wrong, or, never asked her if she wanted something else. Finally, got the bill with 20% automatically added for a party of 6. The service was not worthy of 20%. All in all, 5 out of 6 dinners were very good but experience was ruined by the service and my wife's dinner.
