Food and service great. $45 corkage outrageous. Never spent that much, total rip-off.

I thought the environment of this restaurant was great… sure, you could hear conversations from other tables, but it wasn’t too loud to where it would be an annoyance. The food was very good—we got the bolognese and a filet—all tasted great. Service was prompt, and I’d highly recommend this restaurant to a friend.

Second time here. The food is just amazing! Last time had the bollegnese and Bransino. Both out of this world but the bollegnese is the best we've ever had. Since our first visit we have been trying bolognese every restaurant that serves it and still nothing compares to Toscana. Will come back every time we are in LA. And the Super Tuscon selection is wonderful.

Just fabulous! We have been there many times and always wonderful. The waiters are extremely helpful and attentive. Don’t see what you want on the menu? Just ask and they will probably make it for you! The pasta and grilled dishes are all the best you will find anywhere!

The place is lovely and very busy. The hostess did a great job getting us sat a little before our reservation time. Unfortunately it went downhill from there. The waiter was very nice but overwhelmed so the service was slow and the food took a long time to come out. The ravioli got good comments at the table but the specials were nothing...special. The halibut was overcooked and bland. The short ribs were so-so and the presentation lacked any kind of pride. It was a business meeting so we didn't send anything back. I know every restaurant has there off nights , maybe we'll try it again. I don't like giving a bad review but for the price point, the service and food should be better than this.

Toscana is a classic and a first rate, authentic Trattoria. It's the goldilocks experience. Not too gourmet, not tired or boring. The food is just right no matter what direction you want to go with your choices. And the wait staff are simply the best. Add a nice bottle of Brunello and you're happy to pay.

Loved the bowl of carrots, celery and crisp radishes on the table when we sat down. Such a great idea. Ordered calamari but it was really chewy so they took it back.. instead we ordered the arugula and parm salad, great choice. My husband had the veal chop. It was his best ever, cooked perfectly. I had penne rigate which was delicious. My nephew has the pizza with prosciutto, excellent. Service was superb. It was a wonderful meal and experience. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

The food was excellent however the service was questionable...I was with a friend from NY and
really wanted the evening to be special...We were offered little...no appetizers...no wine selection other than what we ordered by the glass...no desert...and 4 different times we were approached to remove our plates while we were still eating...The food was wonderful but it was
almost as if they really really wanted our table and quickly...Maybe they don't like customers who reserve thru Open Table?

I have been coming to Toscana for decades, and it never fails to meet my expectations. The staff is attentive, the food is always perfect, and the desserts are delicious. I never feel rushed when I dine there (but I also make sure that I don't linger too long, so that others can get in and get seated!) A little pricey, but worth the money!

16 years and NOT one single bad meal or a day the service was other then terrific. Love the food , eating at the bar is a great timesaver and drinks next door at their Bar is a nice touch.

Not much of a wine person but have loved the selection and what they have in glass when the occasion called as well
