Service was slow. Pasta options on the lunch menu were very limited. This was disappointing considering the fresh pasta makes this place standout.

Overall, our large group had a good experience. Our waiter was very attentive and personable. The space is light and bright. Decor is a little chain restaurant-y. The food was good in general. The calamari and cheese/salami player were great. I ordered the fusili and rock shrimp dish. I like al dente but felt it was a little too al dente. The sauce was good but nothing to write home about. It was missing some zest, I suppose.

For starters, there were 3 hostesses at the main entrance who started visibly bickering over who would have to go seat us. Not a great start to what was supposed to be a nice dinner out. While the ambiance was nice, the food could not have been more bland. For the price, there are far better Italian restaurants in and around the city. This was by far some of the worst Italian food I’ve ever had. Cheap chain Italian restaurants far out perform Tuscan Kitchen in all aspects except for ambiance. Very disappointed.

The presentation of the food was excellent but the food itself was not well seasoned. The desserts are amazing

Duck was delusious, chicken was good, filet mignon was also good. My halibut was overcooked and dry. Purées squash was nonexistent. Sauce overpowered the lentils.
The atmosphere and decor was very nice.

The ambiance was great. My food was not cooked. I ordered the pasta and it was extremely hard. By the time they brought it, my lunch hour was almost over.

Great lunch - outstanding caesar salad which they split in the kitchen for us. Two excellent pasta entrees for lunch. Attentive but not obtrusive service.

We went to Tuscan Kitchen the Saturday after Valentine's Day, so we anticipated a vibrant setting. However, we had to wait a bit to be seated and were seated in the bar area, which was disappointing. Our server, Nicole, was excellent. She was personable yet professional and accommodating. And the food was delicious.

It was fine. Trout dish of the day was good, salmon was very good, rabbit dish was just ok: yet broccoli rabe was bitter (should have soaked it first in ice water before sautéing) and just steamed with no sautée imparted flavor, rabbit seamed just boiled or stewed with no dear or caramelization. Needs work. For the price and expectations based on other reviews, I was disappointed.

My lady and I enjoyed ourselves. Although it was a little pricey, it was well worth seeing the smile on my Lady Valentine's face, and I'll be back.

I ordered my steak medium and it was red. Had to wait for the waiter to come around and send it back... only for it to be returned 2 minutes later, still red, and without all my sides that were on my plate, so then I couldn’t eat those at all. He never came back around to ask if it was fine. Couldn’t eat my uncooked steak, lost my sides to the kitchen, and had to wait forever for the waiter each time. For what we paid we’re never going back!

It was a wonderful place to dine at for Valentine’s Day. The food was excellent, our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. They also had the privilege to hold our bags for the evening. I would recommend this place for any other occasion.

We had a wobbly table upon getting seated but the server moved us immediately to a better table, upon request. From that point forward, food & service was fantastic.

Way too overpriced for what you get!! Mushroom ravioli without mushrooms (what the heck??!!), parmesan asparagus without parmesan (a total joke!), ordered a Etna Rosso wine and received an Aglianico!!! Sooo disappointing! The tuna tartare was really good, but not enough to justify the bill.

For starters - the food was excellent. From the apps, to the entrees, to the dessert.

The service on the other hand - eek. The moment we checked in for our reservation, the hostesses were not friendly. A few of us arrived early so we sat at the bar for drinks - our bartender was excellent! After all the guests arrived, we sat at our table and our waiter promptly brought water over... and then was gone for about 20 minutes. He hadnt asked if anyone needed drinks even though about half the table didnt have cocktails/wine/etc. Overall service seemed to be rather slow. Two of our guests had ordered a drink at the bar and then the same drink later while eating dinner - and it was made completely different. Our waiter and (I assume) a manager tried to tell them they ordered something different at the bar (they did not).

Bottom line - absolutely go for the food. Don't expect much from service.

Disappointing at best. The plates, (we ordered grilled salmon, 1/2 roast chicken and lobster ravioli)although nicely presented came out dry and tasteless. Very expensive for very ordinary food experience.

Every part of our experience at Tuscan Kitchen was superb. Prior to our reservation, we had two extra people join us, and upon calling, they were extremely accommodating to extend our reservation. We had a great table. Taylor, our server was extremely helpful, efficient, and friendly. All of our appetizers, wine, and entrees were excellent. We loved the food. Great restaurant!

We had to wait for 20 min, despite having a reservation. Hostess was not having a good night, and was rude and abrupt.
We were seated and forgotten about for 20 minutes before someone came by to ask if we had been helped. Once engaged, the server was friendly and helpful, despite being obviously busy.
Wait time for food was longish, though it was a busy Saturday night. The food ranged from bad to great. Gnocchi with short rib Ragu was excellent, as was the bread and pizza. A grilled filet mignon was average, and grilled jumbo shrimp were so tough no more than 1 bite was eaten. (They were taken off the bill)
Very hit and miss, but overall better Italian food can be found in the city for much lower prices at other establishments.

Sat in the high top chairs infront of the kitchen. Val our server was amazing and recommended the Frutti di Mare it was delicious. The manager came over and asked how our meal was . 10/10 would recommend.
