Once again Toscano did not disappoint. This is our go to Italian restaurant that has delicious authentic Italian food. We have tried everything from the pasta dishes, seafood dishes, various salads. John/owner/chef focuses on using fresh vegetables and fruits that are locally sourced and in season. Some of our favorite dishes include the calamari appetizer done in a broth, the gnocchi Bolognese, many pasta dishes, the fish dishes, and the fresh salads.

The restaurant reminds us of a little quaint restaurant in Italy. My husband says the biscotti is the best he's ever had (and we've been to Italy multiple times and have eaten at the finest restaurants around the world). I like the Italian cookies which are soft with sprinkles. This week he made homemade plum gelato that was a perfect combination of sweet and sour - very unique. This restaurant was our go to place during Covid and is a hidden gem in our backyard. We are lucky to have it.

Look at his weekly specials onlune. You must try!!!

Discourteous upon arrival.
Food poor quality
Ambiance & cleanliness well below average

Considered leaving while waiting for the table. Staying proved d to be a poor decision

Service was on point - very kind and knowledgeable- menu had all the favorites - it was peach month- so way too many peach options in every category - pasta was delicious - somewhat cluttered atmosphere - fun organ player - place looks kind of sketchy from the outside - but cozy on the inside.

The food was good not great. the best thing about the evening was the service. Our waitress Stephanie was phenomenal! it was our first time there. We have many other places to chose from. I think this will be one and done unfortunately. Not cheap either.

The roasted pepper and mozzarella app was really good. My flounder entree as well as my wife's basa fish with figs and pears was delicious! To finish it, the decaf cappuccino and limoncello cake were outstanding. Our server was Mary, who was very helpful in answering our questions and was very attentive to our needs!

We are hoping that more people realize what a find this restaurant is. Not because we don't enjoy the attention and service we received, but because we hope that business picks up for the very deserving owner/chef. We have become regulars.

The food and service are always top notch. I am concerned about the terrible condition of the front steps. I always picture someone tripping on them and getting hurt before they have the pleasure of eating Toscano's fine food.

The special ravioli was frozen and just drowned in a bland sauce. NOT worth $20+. My father's lasagna hardly had any cheese. Very disappointed.

We had a wonderful dinner, when we arrived we met the owner, John, we related a story to him about another customer, the reason we came since we live out of the area. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful and he came by several times to discuss the meal choices with us. It was a delightful dinner.

Was a random find on Yelp as I am not from the area. Overall was very pleased. Authentic. Had some unusual food pairings for specials that were very delicious. A little cramped for space but didn’t mind. Kudos to our server who memorized a novel worth of specials. A man played the piano the entire night. Was quite lovely.
