We hadn't been to BV Tuscany for several years. I can't recall the reason, but in any case, we decided to try it again a few weeks ago. We were very happily surprised by our first visit and so decided to go back a few days ago before an 8 pm show at the Bergen PAC. Again, we were made to feel special and welcomed. Service was lovely: knowledgeable and personable without being obnoxious. The food is prepared with an authentic but delicate touch. We appreciated even the Caesar salad, which was the "real" thing. The specials were creative and described beautifully. Any questions were promptly answered. Some Italian restaurants are heavy handed, especially when it comes to garlic, cheese, and sauces. Both of our meals so far at BV Tuscany were delicious and light enough to be truly enjoyable. I was also happily surprised that unlike most local restaurants in Bergen County, BV Tuscany has a liquor license. My husband doesn't like to drink alcohol, so for me to bring a bottle of wine for one glass usually doesn't make sense. At BV Tuscany, I could enjoy wine by the glass, which is just right for me. It is highly likely that BV Tuscany will be our "go to" restaurant, especially when we want to stay local.

Veal alla Benny (weird name) was delicious. Portion was ample. Octopus appetizer was perfectly cooked.

Shrimp Napoleon did not work for me although the shrimp was cooked just right.

The lobster fea diavolo could have used more lobster.

Italian cheesecake was delish

All in all it was yummy and well priced.

We took my parents to BV Tuscany for their 62nd wedding anniversary. The staff was knowledgeable, gracious & patient as we tried to decide from among their many wonderful specials! They were attentive & professional, which on top of the truly delicious food, made for a wonderful overall experience. This was our first time here - chose it based on Yelp & other reviews - & we were definitely not disappointed! Top quality ingredients, thoughtfully prepared & served. We will most certainly be back!

We go to BV Tuscany 4-5 times a year and are never disappointed. The service is spot-on and the food is well presented. I had an appetizer (spinach and ricotta dumplings) and the Veal Scallopini Picata as an entree. The veal was so tender and tasty - you could cut it with a butter knife. My wife had tri-colored salad and a special that night of Atlantic Sea Bass. The fish was outstanding! I am not a big fish eater but after taking a taste of hers I was sorry I hadn't ordered it also. Desert was also delicious. The restaurant is a little pricey but the quality and preparation of the food makes it worthwile. I have written several Open Table reviews of BVT in the past and always felt comfortable giving it high grades

Good food, nice sized menu, really warm decor/atmosphere - but the most distinguishing factor here is the service: aware and attentive without being too much, friendly in a way that adds to the experience, knowledgeable.

Have been there many times before and enjoyed the service and food. This time, they got my order wrong. When the waiter finally brought my food, it was very disappointing. The waiter was obnoxious and condescending. We were 2 couples and no one was thrilled with the food.

Almost everything about BV was 5 star - the service was attentive and excellent, pretty restaurant with comfortable seating, menu choices great and everything we ordered was terrific - loved the lobster fra diavalo special and the chicken with brown sauce and mushrooms. Our only complaint was the bread - thin slices of very mediocre bread. A restaurant of this caliber can do much, much better on the bread front! Come on guys - how about some nice crusty thick slices of warm sourdough?!

As always, the food is excellent at BV Tuscany. Their specials are always fresh and delicious. Our mushroom risotto was packed full of flavor, and we were very happy that our waiter suggested it as an appetizer.
It was our anniversary, so we were treated to a song and a panne cotta dessert. Had we known, we would not have ordered desserts, but the sorbetti were also delicious.
We we always come here when we have something special to celebrate, or people from out of town. It is like having a NYC meal, but only minutes from home!
