We enjoyed a welcoming, charming host. Great service from our server. Delicious cocktails. And the food was outstanding. We had the chicken, some steak, the charcuterie board and a salad. All absolutely wonderful. We can't wait to go back. Unique and comfortable ambiance.

If you don't eat pork, then your choices are pretty limited. Plenty of choices using pancetta, bacon or pork in the appetizers, pasta's and main courses. The roasted chicken seemed an option, but it is only for two and states that it takes an hour (i think). Wine list pretty expensive. Did not see much below $50 and most bottles $60 and up. Overall the service is attentive, food quality is very good, portions are reasonable. This is at least my 4th dinner here in the last 12 months.

We had a great Valentines experience at Tosca Cafe. We enjoyed a special kale salad with unique beet dressing, focaccia bread, seafood saute and veal pasta. Not only that -- we had their famous cappuccino served since 1919. We topped the dinner of with sorbeti and gelati desserts. They are all delicious. Gianni gave us a house tour. We rate this restaurant 5 stars on food and service.

Service was all over us too quickly and filling our water over and over...or missing completely and we waited 15 minutes to order our first round of drinks.

The pasta dishes in particular were exceptional. I thought the service was a bit scattered.

Every dish we ordered was fantastic! Shared a few pasta dishes among two people and were full. Even the focaccia bread appetizer was great. Will be coming back someday for sure.

most dishes extremely salty, meatballs were terrible. However the foccacia and whole chicken marsala were standouts. Other than that the meal was entirely forgettable and overpriced....
