Toscana 49 is the real deal Italian restaurant. Small, intimate and friendly, with the best Italian food we've ever eaten in the US. The veal scaloppine was perfect. Don't miss the red snapper.

Classic New York Charming Italian Restaurant. Quiet neighborhood, but a good crowd.

Great service and a variety of choices, I would imagine if it's not on the menu they might even still make it for you!

We lost all our usual haunts to the pandemic, unfortunately. I walked by Toscano by chance last week and knew we wanted a place for a celebratory dinner. What a perfect choice. Delicious food, attentive staff and a charming ambiance. A new haunt, for sure.

It was our second dinner at Toscana and we enjoyed it as much as the first time. The servers were very friendly and pleasant, the food was good and although the cocktails were a bit expensive we will return.

We sat on the patio. The food was great and so was the service! Kudos to Toscana!

One of the diners brought along a very noisy badly behaved dog that kept barking - other than that, it was a great experience.

The food was excellent, especially for the money. We were there for a late lunch and there were only a couple other diners in the restaurant. Despite not being busy, the service was friendly, but somewhat slow and inattentive. Despite this, overall it was a pleasant dining experience.

Ok. Food was average (soup under-seasoned, a little greasy). Crowded and in a low-ceiling space, with no vaccination status check and haphazard masking requirements. Won’t hurry back.

We were in town from Memphis to buy my daughter a wedding dress.
The food was spectacular and the service made us feel special. At 10:30 I asked what time they closed and he said 10pm but we were never rushed and in fact they told us to stay and enjoy as long as we wanted. Prices were reasonable and the deserts were decadent. We enjoyed it so much we were going to go back for a second night but decided just to eat at the hotel because it was storming.

We had a special birthday lunch at Toscana 49 and it was absolutely lovely from beginning to end. They took very good care of us; our server was attentive and friendly, the food was excellent and we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon. Highlights include the pork chop, spinach pasta cascia de pepe, tiramasu, chocolate mousse cake and extensive wine list. Outdoor and indoor seating available. Highly recommend!

Nice atmosphere. Food was ok but not quite what we expected. Staff was great. Squid ink pasta was not black as would be expected but green. The sauce was ok. Chef did accommodate a request for a special dish. This was greatly appreciated.

We had the nicest experience at Toscana 49. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Everyone at the table loved their meal. We never felt rushed. We were celebrating a retirement and they let us linger. Definitely save room for dessert…traditional creme brûlée and cheesecake were wonderful. We’ll definitely be back.

Lo encontramos buscando en google los mejores restaurantes de New York, nos aparecieron varios, y escogimos este, nos queda cerca donde nos hospedamos, la comida excelente, la atención muy buena, hasta volvimos a ir, y nos encontramos la sorpresa que tienen brunch sábados y domingos, pero nuestro regreso es el sábado, ya no pudimos saborear el brunch. MUY RECOMENDADO

The salad was tasteless and it was VERY loud. They desperately need some sound baffles. We could barely hear each other. On the other hand, the entrees were delicious.
