Tosca Ristorante - Ottawa
As soon as you walk in you will be greeted with a combination of traditional Italian color ways of patina, stone, and rich wood. This essence has been incorporated in every detail of this charming and sophisticated restaurant and bar; from Tosca's creative Italian menu and selected wine list, to the inviting interiors providing for a comfortable, intimate and memorable experience.
scallopini with marsala wine and mushroom, served with vegetables and potatoes
Lightly fried calamari served with our house cocktail dip
Romaine lettuce with our superb caesar dressing, bacon, croutons and parmesan cheese
Great food, good service. Only disappointment was that a number of the wines on the menu were not available
It was awesome! Great food and very nice service!
Very good, fast service and great ambiance!!!!!!!!
Really nice atmosphere with friendly service. Food was amazing and fairly priced. At first I was seated by the washrooms and the door to the kitchen so it was loud but I asked to move and they accommodated. Will definitely go again. Would recommend the veal with shrimp in the cognac and peppercorn sauce for sure.
This night, the Chef was clearly out of his mind. The food was horrible. They served us a "soup of the day", it's not ajoke, it tasted like a Lipton Soup Base. THe Main course was so-so too. That's strange, because this restaurant have a very good note on the web, but like I said, this night was a nightmare in the kitchen.
Bon repas , service excellent et sympathique malgré les restrictions COVID 😉
Location very quiet on weekends. Food quality needs to be higher for price point.
Service was great, food was delicious!
Very nice meal.....and we were very pleased that they offered us a nice dessert ....
Very friendly staff, good service.
Food was slightly salty.
Excellent service, great food for an amazing price! One of my favourite restaurants! Where I had my first date with my wife. Some of my best memories are at Tosca. Highly recommend the Veal.
Very nice place . Good service and food. Will go back for sure.
We only had the appetizers so cannot comment overall. The escargot was delicious, as was the shrimp. However, we were disappointed with the calamari. It was chewy and rubbery and did not taste fresh. It tasted as though it came from a packet.
We do want to try their main courses though so we can get an overall opinion.
Great meal, with amazing service, the ambiance was more of a family restaraunt than an upscale place
We had an amazing evening celebrating my bf’s birthday. The restaurant were great in keeping notes on all my food allergies as well as surprising us with dessert on the house. The service we received could not have been more perfect. The food was excellent and no complaints on the scotch either. My bf and I are sure to make this on are come back and visit list when we visit Ottawa again. Thank you for being part of our magical evening.
Food could have used more flavour. Music did not fit the atmosphere. Everything else was amazing.
Birthday dinner, great service. The pizza and cheesecake are the best things in the menu.
Great experience! I love coming here.
Excellent place for a nice dinner date. We arrived early and had the whole place to ourselves. The service was top notch and everything was delicious, we will definitely be back.
Great food, amazing wine list and friendly staff. Would recommend
Amazing service, food, wine and environment. Had an amazing evening
Service was great, food was good!! Had a really good time!
We had a colleague birthday lunch celebrated there . All 14 of us really appreciated the food and ambiance of this restaurant. However, it took about and hour to get our plates which was decieving to say the least.
I was visiting Ottawa for the weekend from Barrie On and we were looking for an authentic Italian food with a modern flair and found it on trip advisor. Everything was terrific right down to our waiter. He did everything to ensure we were more than satisfied with the service and the food!!
Inattentive service, food was average, not sure what the hype is about in the ratings. We went by open table ratings, average experience, nothing memorable.
Incredibly bad service and seating. The waiter was rarely at our table and despite a reservation and empty tables elsewhere they seated us in the middle of an aisle where waiters continuously bumped our elbows spilling our food. Also apparently pop refills aren’t free which they don’t tell u till agter
Un accueil chaleureux ! Souper de St-Valentin, belle ambiance et lieu convivial!
There were 30+ people waiting in the lobby for reservations on Valentine’s Day. We waited for 25 minutes and never got seated. We ended up going to a different restaurant. Needs better management.
They severely overbooked the restaurant after waiting for a while, they sat us in a crowded booth next to the door.
I wouldn’t go on Valentines day again, but I would definitely go during a regular week evening again as I’m sure it’s less busy
Service was very fast. Knowledgeable wine advice. Lasagne and cannelloni were superb.
Small portions and large prices. Four shrimp cocktail was 19. No, they were not of the giant tiger variety.
Service was extremely fast and waitress was polite and professional. Veal was a little overcooked, but overall it was good.
One of my favourite restaurants downtown! Always good service, good wine, and great food. The penne fortunato is my fav.
2nd time there. Share plates and seafood soup terrific. Grilled calamari superb. Bread dishes and pasta fait
Wonderful evening. 12 people in our group. Attentive service. Food was very good. Wine list great. Value for money. Lovely room with large windows.
Food is succulent, service is excellent.
Very good experience for a romantic evening. The tables for two are very small thought. If you are taking the antipasto platter, the board hangs out of the table. You have to move everything to fit a bottle of wine. You will feel cramped. It's the only negative point.
We were there for winterlude.
