Went to Tosca for supper on a Friday evening before going to a show at the NAC. The staff and service was welcoming from the moment we walked in the door until we were on our way to the show. Our wine was served in beautiful crystal glasses. The portions are quite large. We shared an excellent Caesar salad and then thoroughly enjoyed our cannelloni and veal main course dishes. Highly recoomend this wonderful venue!

We went for my sisters bachelorette party and we had a private room which was nice. The waiter was friendly and funny. The food was delicious! I had the linguine al pescatore with a rosé sauce. I plan to return with my boyfriend and will order that dish again! All the party goers enjoyed their meal. Thank you Tosca Ristorante.

The food was exceptionally good. I had the veal piccata and the white wine butter sauce was excellent and the veal was nicely thin. Also, the veggies on the side were asparagus (done to perfection) along with yellow and red bell peppers that were the perfect consistency. Others at my table had the pizza and they really liked it - especially with the fresh basil. Overall it was very good.

Nice to try new places in the city, however, I think there are better and worse Italian restaurants around. The accommodated a big group easily and their wine was good. The servers were very polite but the food was a little basic for the cost.

Amazing food and service. Escargot to start as a toss up to the garlic shrimp. Garlic shrimp looked amazing. Pizza, angel hair pasta with oil and garlic wonderful, seafood risotto was wonderful and veal with shrimp tender and succulent.

Excellent restaurant! So consistently good in menu, wine and service. Love their fettuccine domenico and cannelloni. Best veal dishes in town. Getting smaller on their proportions over the years.
