Italian
Tuscany Ristorante Italiano is a classic favorite among the locals and tourists alike. We are located at the corner of Longhill Road and Olde Towne Road in Williamsburg. We are a fine Italian restaurant that offers our guests a taste of true authentic Italian dishes. The restaurant is co-owned by Aldo Bertuglia and Kate Huff. Aldo is responsible for everything in the kitchen and Kate is responsible for the guests and front employees.
We offer a magnificent selection of the finest authentic Italian dishes. We do not take short cuts. All of our dishes are made to order, which means that you can expect to have a dish where the ingredients and sauces are prepared and made on site after you place your order.
We offer more than spaghetti and meatballs. So do not be afraid to explore beyond your ordinary pallet. Have a glance at our menu and photo gallery (currently under construction) to see what tempts you.

This is one of our favorites here in Williamsburg.
The house salad is always cold and crunchy. House dressing is delicious. Garlic knots buttery and flavorful.
We love their calamari!
Excellent value. Wait staff are always friendly and devoted.
We have never been disappointed!

Our dinners were very good. This restaurant's food is consistent and the service is very attentive. One critique, however, are the wine selections by glass or carafe. While reasonably priced, they are mediocre at best. Plus, they seem to run out of choices. Considering they are likely jug wines, it doesn't make sense to not have all of them available.

Don't be deterred by the strip-mall location. The food and service were outstanding! The lasagna serving was delicious and huge, and the the triple parmesan was tasty and satisfying (chicken, veal, and shrimp).

Highly recommend.

We were meeting another couple from New Jersey for a 6:30 pm reservation on Thursday evening. I called ahead to inform them I would be bringing a bottle of sparkling wine which would need to be chilled in an ice bucket as soon as we arrived. But when we got there they did not have any ice buckets and our server told us she did not know how to ice the bottle down. I had a small Styrofoam cooler with ice in my car so I retrieved it to keep our sparkling wine iced down. I also brought a bottle of high end red wine vintage 2010 and asked our server to decant it. She seemed perplexed and finally told us they do not have decanters. They have an extensive menu and a separate menu of specialties of the day. We started with appetizers for sharing and they were fine. But when our wives ordered one of their specialties our server returned from the kitchen and informed us they did not have it. So our wives ordered another appetizer which reached our table at tepid temperatures. After dinner we asked for cappuccinos but their cappuccino machine was broken. Their food portions are large and prices typical of an Italian restaurant striving to offer a fine dining experience. But they were far off the mark.

Food was excellent and the portions were large enough to take some home. Service was very efficient and attentive. Good value on wine and house wine was good quality.

Outside dining is available if you desire to dine in the open air.

We were pleasantly, surprised wit the delightful experience. We chose Tuscany at random and found the quiet environment was a perfect compliment to the wonderful bill of fair. The portions were ample and even the bread was an experience. the Ciopino is not to be missed. Bar service was quick and efficient with healthy pours of wine. Overall a wonderful evening with great personal service.

We chose Tuscany Ristorante Italiano for our 39th Anniversary dinner based on a prior visit. Due to COVID, we stayed stateside (we were booked for a Jamaican vacation). For 30+ years we've made Williamsburg a twice a year visit (Spring and Fall)...a 6 hour drive from NJ. So it was our short getaway during the pandemic. We had numbers of choices for a celebratory dinner, but chose Tuscany for its food, menu selection, service and décor.

It was extremely convenient that Tuscany was an Open Table member and under COVID conditions, acquiring reservations fortunate with limited seating. My request for quiet and intimate seating was honored. The staff fully observed COVID policies with both masks and gloves, and we felt comfortable in the environment.

The server was attentive and responsive. Only one communications issue arose having to do with a request for Caesar salad. She did not explain that the salad was prepared for the entire table in a single bowl, so when a request for plain lettuce with Caesar dressing was made, she replied "We won't do that." When the salad (large bowl, ample and well made) arrived we appreciated why our request was 'unusual'. Had she explained, we would have immediately understood. Aside from that one hiccup, all else was wonderful.

Wine and Beer were ample portions, and the meals much to our liking. My wife had Chicken Francoise, and I had a Seafood Risotto Special that included chicken, sausage, mushrooms and oysters (which was extremely good). Both were large portions.

I highly recommend the Tuscany.

The waitress was very kind and friendly. I really like the fact that I made a reservation and was able to change it 15 minutes before I was supposed to be there. The portion of food was a lot and the prices were nice.

My wife and I ate at Tuscany on Friday, 9/25. It is one of the true hidden gems of Williamsburg. Fantastic food and service in a discreet location. We shared the mushroom appetizer (shown)—amazing. My wife had the eggplant parmigiana and I had the parmigiana trio special. We shared berry cake for desert. Everything was amazing. And the waiter was very professional and attentive. A great evening.

Great little neighborhood restaurant. They serve the freshest salad with your entree, and main courses are very, very good, also their garlic knots are the best. We love going there.

My friend and I had a very enjoyable dinner at Ristorante Tuscana. I had creamy risotto with scallops and a crab cake. It was delicious and the portion was huge. I took half home and enjoyed it again the next day.

The server was attentive and I enjoyed the salad and bread that came with the meal.

Our first time out since March, Tuscany proved to be a enjoyable evening food-wise. We ordered an antipasti that was well prepared and generous and the salad and rolls were good. We both ordered pastas and they were huge and very tasty. The person that took our name (certainly not a greeting) asked whose birthday it was but nothing further was said. We waited for a drink order for almost 10 minutes but that was quickly followed by our waitperson taking the food order. Overall, it was an acceptable evening but we do not have any sense that we need to return.
