Overall the food is alright, i have tried better places, the service is really poor, my server was checking out on me every 35 minutes and i did not have more wine or water, i finished with the appetizer and it took like 25 minutes to get the main course that it was cold by the way, it was not even busy, I don't know it was not horrible but definitely not something that i will try again, do not get the spaghetti eith clams literally is like eating plain pasta with 10 clams on top thats it

Great food and service. Excellant happy hour. Service was amazing and the decor is beautiful, cant ask for much more. Although it's a bit loud. Wish they would open upstairs it may be a bit quieter for those who want conversations.

I brought my girlfriend here for Valentine’s Day last on a last minute reservation. They were very accommodating and got me in at a decent time! I was sat in a long line of table next to each other where I was about 1-2 feet away from people sitting to my right and left. My girlfriend and I were very uncomfortable since we could hear their convos and they could hear ours. I felt like I was imposing on other people’s dates almost... haha. We asked our server immediately to seat us in a booth if he could and he was more than happy to do so. We had to wait 30 minutes at the bar but got served free champagne while we waited. Probably because it was Valentine’s Day. Anyway, great food, great service, ambience is wonderful, and perfect for a date!

My wife and I went to Tuscan Italian chip house for valentines dinner .. they put us in a table on top of others we requested a nice little booth .. my wife order Filet mignon. She ordered it medium. It came out rare not once not twice but three times .. there was a set menu that we were unaware of . They up charged $20 on the already $75 per person price for my steak which was on their limited menu. The manger did not even come back to check on us or offer to buy my wife a glass of wine .. my bill was $270.00 and not worth it... this was our first and last time .

My first clue should have been reading the negative reviews and being able to book a table on Valentine’s Day when everyone else was booked. My first surprise was a special set menu at 75$ each I wouldn’t usually care about price if the meal was good and had decent service We were seated right away for a 7 pm reservation 25 minutes later we finally received our first drink. After both ordering filet and lobster tail our appetizer arrived my wife had the arrinci and I had grilled oysters. Mine was cold and hers was barely warm. The same held true for the rest of the meal. Our filets were ordered medium and came out medium rare. And cold the whole plate was cold. Unable to get our waitress back we ate a few bites. The flavors were good but it’s a shame the meals were cold. Such a nice place. But took 2 1/2 hours and we took desert to go cannot recommend this place

Good cold waiter gone for a while as they had a meeting. Oysters served in a bed of salt looked nice but salt covered the food. Meat had no taste. And mashed potatoes needed salt they were tasteless Place nice and waiter nice.

Monday nights is the Happy Hour pricing for appetizers, flatbreads, drinks, and oysters. But it only applies if you eat in the bar area. So make sure you advise the hostess, otherwise you will get hit up with full pricing. The skirt steak is the best I have had in town. Service was excellent.

Tuscan was highly recommend by a friend. From appetizers to coffee, the food was horrible. Calamari was rubbery, the Risotto special was one big clump of cold rice and the tiniest of seafood was sitting on top - the 1 shrimp in the center was good. The salads were fine and my daughters veal was fine. We order coffee and it arrived thick and murky and cold.

The waiter did take the calamari and coffee's off the bill but it was truly one of the worst meals I have had.

The bread and eggplant spread were superb.

It's hard to call a restaurant this big a hidden gem, but it really is! It hasn't been open that long so Google Maps doesn't recognize it yet. Everything about our meal was terrific. We shared a salad, and then the cauliflower crust flatbread and the chicken piccata. They were very accommodating to being gluten free. The dessert looked great too, but we were too full from the main course! Our waitress, Sarah, was incredibly nice. Can't recommend this place enough!

Piccata should have lemon juice and capers. Their dish had neither. Chicken was deep fried brick. Clearly this restaurant won’t last long. No one there when other places are full nearby.

It’s smelled very badly when we walked in, so we just left, couldn’t even sit at the bar the stench was that bad. Didn’t understand as we were told it was a very good restaurant. Possibly no one cleaned up from the night before but very bad

Happy Hour done easily and correctly. On monday nights the happy hour is all night on starters, flatbreads, and oysters at $2 each. Half off of drinks. we had a feast for half price. The meatball, and flatbread was delicious. Service was excellent.

I had the veal saltimboca. It was made with a cream sauce and was served over mashed potatoes.. The places I know serve it with a tomato based sauce and pasta. I wasn’t fond of their version. My wife had gnocchi she enjoyed it. On the plus side, they do pour an excellent drink. Server was outstanding

Sat outside. Good music. Service was great. My date said it was the best Lobster Ravioli she had ever had. My chicken parm was very good also. Valet parking right next to the restaurant made it very easy to get in and out. I will return.

Our first experience there in early November was awesome so we booked New Years Eve based on that. The server that we had was clueless about how to wait a table. Had a 9:30 rez and waited 20 minutes to be seated but there were lots of open tables. The owners were seated at a table with several patrons. They never acknowledged any of their guests. It was obvious that they were very disorganized that night but did not appear to be over crowded. The real killer was when we were informed at 11:30 pm that they ran out of Skirt Steak. We (3 of us) had ordered it at 10:15 pm. We then ordered Veal Marsala in place of the steak. It was over cooked and short on flavor.
I also received an email from the restaurant on the day of our reservation stating a "new head chef" had just been hired. Not a good sign. The last chef was awesome. So what seems to me to be the message is that the place, as beautiful as it is, is too large for the kitchen to handle and the management needs to pay more attention and train their staff.
Went in with high expectations and left very disappointed.

We had a really bad experience in Tustin Prime Italian. First we were given the worst table in the restaurant and then when we called this to the attention of the host she gave us the second worst table in the restaurant. Our waiter didn’t stop at our table until about 20 minutes after we were seated and got all four of our drink orders wrong. The appetizers and salad we ordered were really good. The tomahawk steak (@ $135) we ordered arrived cold and overcooked. The two filets we ordered were fine but the potatoes and carrots that came on the side were umdercooked. Our sides, asparagus and brussel sprouts arrived greasy and flavorless. We won’t go back to this restaurant.

Maybe because it was New Years Eve the food was prepared in masses and let sit. Side of potatoes was brought with our salads. Asked our server to take back. Steaks and lobster were dry. I had to turn my filet on its side to cut into. Silverware arrived a couple of minutes after our plates were brought to us. I live in Texas, not really certain if I would recommend to others although this place came highly recommended.

For the price food was mediocre - server was pleasant and tried but may have been overwhelmed with the number of people he has to attend to. Bartenders were slow and aloof

New Years Eve. Very nice restaurant. Service was good but, 1. everything was rushed. We weren’t done with the appetizers and the salad was sat down in front of us. The same with the salad, entre served way too soon. 2. We were talking and I didn’t realize we received no bread. By this time it was too late. Every other table had bread, maybe the waiter thought we didn’t need it. It did look like it might of been very good.
