Nestled in the heart of midtown Manhattan’s east side, a stone’s throw from New York City’s finest hotels and Grand Central Station, Toscana49 offers a serene and elegant retreat from the bustle of the city. We offer classic Italian dishes, and fresh homemade pastas that are made daily in our own kitchen, using time-honored traditional methods. Our welcoming staff is ready to assist you in choosing wines from our extensive wine list, introducing you to our specials, which change daily to include the freshest ingredients available from local markets, or mixing you the perfect cocktail.

We are open lunch and dinner seven days a week and serve a special brunch on weekends.

What an amazing restaurant. It was my first time there & my wife & I were completely blown away at the simplicity of the restaurant & the high quality of the ingredients. I highly recommend this restaurant. We sat indoors & it was very safe & friendly. The owner & staff go above & beyond to make their guests feel comfortable. Thank you for such a wonderful dinner & we will definitely be back!

Sadly, after sending back my steak once because it was overcooked, they returned a new steak to me that was raw and cold on the inside, clearly rushing a new steak out to me that had not been thawed from frozen. At its most raw, the steak was downright cold. I did not have either the interest or time to send it back again, so I ate around the raw part. I do not have much patience for restaurants who have a $38 mediocre steak on the menu, being the most expensive item on the entire menu, but then cannot cook it perfectly. The service staff was very nice and poured a little wine into all three of our glasses, but I would not recommend this restaurant, nor would I go back to it again. It's a shame - New York City needs everyone to try their hardest to rebuild the atmosphere in Midtown, but alas some restaurants that have survived this long may not survive in the long term. Toscana 49 is forgettable, mediocre in my experience, and might not be around very much longer if it can't step up every time and deliver an outstanding customer experience. I hope I was the exception, but I doubt it.

Given the circumstances of eating outside (no ambiance) it was a great meal. Very good Italian offerings - especially the home made pasta.

Appetizers were good but really not impressed with main courses. Not Italian for sure, my pasta came swimming in fat and oil. I think it’s way overpriced for the food you get.

Given the Covid-19 restrictions, Toscana 49 has risen to the occasion with comfortable outdoor dining. They have done all they can do to make a diner feel safe with Plexiglas between tables and appropriate distancing. The service and food are as ever -- attentive and excellent. Toscana 49 is succeeding during these difficult times.

No problem eating in the street with what is going on. One dish was very good but the pasta dish was too lemonly to eat. The vodka tonic cocktail was missing the vodka.

We enjoyed a delicious meal from appetizers to dessert and coffee on Saturday evening. We sat outside with a gentle breeze and views of the sunset. The service was excellent, just like the food. We will be back again soon.

My main concern with ALL restaurants, including this one, is the placement of menus on napkins, plates and silverware. The menus are filthy, handled by hundreds of diners. Need I say more? Even in the best of times, this horrible tradition is unhealthy but with the coronavirus, restaurants have to wake up

We came in at a busy point, so being small table, we were a bit ignored in the beginning.
We sat at a table missing a fork, we ordered a salad to share as first course, and no one came back to check on us, so we ate the salad sharing a fork. Luckily we are married and able to do this. We were served more by the server assistants than the actual server. Husbands drink ran empty and we had to ask for another, rather than being offered. Basic service touch points lacked. While the Manager/owner sat at the bar laughing with the team..

We met some friends from Europe who were staying in the neighborhood. We were seated immediately in a nice section by the wine wall. The servers were gracious though the server refilling water was a bit overzealous; he frequently interrupted our conversations to reach over to refill a glass that was still half full. The salads and soup came our quickly and the entrees — mostly pastas — were not far behind. One of us had the grilled calamari and said it was perfect. The rest of us had lasagna, ravioli, or linguini. All were delicious and in perfect portions — no leftovers. I wish the table bread was a bit better. We had coffee and dessert and were done in about 2 1/2 hours. We didn’t feel rushed but did feel that we were not comfortable lingering to talk.
