This is our second time going at Toscano’s and we absolutely love it. We came for the first time a few days prior and were excited to go back and try what else they had on the menu. Overall we have had the cavatappi and sausage, the chicken linguine, the piccata and the spring vegetable risotto. Our favorites were the piccata and the spring vegetable risotto (I feel like I could eat the risotto every day it was that amazing) but everything we’ve had here is delicious. Great wine. Fair prices. The green dipping oil with the bread they bring to the table is phenomenal. Both servers were lovely and we will definitely be back again and again!

Went for lunch on a Saturday at 11:45. Weather was sunny and we had an outdoor table. Service was excellent. We both had the half and half combo. My sister had French dip and chowder. The soup was on the salty side. I had turkey club w summer harvest salad. They brought me the wrong salad but my server caught the error. He had them bring out the one I ordered. The summer seasonal salad was mushy and did not taste good. The super house salad (which was the mistake) was a better salad. I was glad they gave me the wrong one bcuz the one I had ordered was not appetizing.
