My book group met at Ristorante Toscano for dinner. John is so accommodating-made our group feel comfortable. The menu is interesting and varied, and always features many nightly specials. My husband and I have eaten here many times, often with friends, and each time is a great experience.

2nd time here and the first was far better than this experience. The service is fantastic, cute local place. Had a reservation and requested a special table and they were ready and fulfilled this request. Again, service is fantastic.
Had the eggplant appetizer and it was delicious. My disappointment came with my meal, I had the chicken picante and my chicken was overcooked and dry and the sauce was tasteless. The bread was soft and on the table when we arrived as they were expecting us, but unfortunately cold.

I loved the relaxed feel of this place while listening to the lovely live piano music. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The lasagna was amazing and enhanced with a side of fra diavolo sauce and the caesar salad was refreshing and lightly dressed. Service was excellent, well-timed and friendly. Chef personally came out to see how the dishes were received.

I went there with my parents after my mother had a difficult medical appointment. It was nice and quiet and the food was really good. The gentleman who served us was very kind and helpful. It was very quiet, but we went on a weekday. It was a great experience and I will go back. It was also nicer than some of the other places you will find in the area. The building looks old on the outside, but it is really nice on the inside. And it is family-owned, not a franchise. You can tell the difference in how great the food is.

I would recommend this place any time, but especially if you are looking for a quiet dinner during the week.

When you walk in, there is no hostess to greet you so it's kind of odd. We had to wait a few minutes for a table to be set but no issues. Sat down and was greeted by our waitress who rattled off the long list of specials by memory. She disappeared for about 10 minutes. Enough time to eat all the bread, and for another server to ask if anyone had been over to greet us. Our waitress came back and we ordered. For an appetizer we ordered the mushroom caps that were on special. They were very small. Lukewarm. And were definitely not cooking the whole way through. When our food came out, it was piping hot. I had the shrimp scampi. Nothing special. Very buttery. Pasta was a bit over cooked. My friend had the chicken Marsala. She had to order a side of pasta because it didn't come with one. Very odd. She commented that the sauce was good. While waiting for the waitress to come back to ask if we were done, there was a large party going on. Since it was all in the same room (no private room) it made it a bit awkward when the bride and groom gave a speech. Needless to say, we couldn't wait to leave. Didn't bother ordering desert or hearing the menu. Would not recommend or go back.

My boyfriend and I had driven past this place a few times. We were looking for a place for a nice date night but hadn't planned ahead with reservations anywhere. Luckily, when checking out OpenTable this place had an open reservation. I'm glad we took it! The food was delicious and it was BYOB. It is a small place, easy to miss but we didn't find it overly loud, even with the live pianist. Our server was a little slow and forgetful but she was overly pleasant so we didn't feel the need to complain. It was a little pricey but the food was delightful and perfect for the occasional date night. We will be coming back.

There were four people dining. Everyone was satisfied with their food. It was sufficient in quantity and tasted fine. However, the food was not the best, especially considering the price.
I have linguine and clams in reds sauce. There wasn't one whole clam in the dish. Just chunks of clam. It cost $18.00. Our local Italian restaurant charges a few dollars less and gives you 6-8 clams in the shell. The bread was very good. The service was excellent.
