We had a business dinner there, and they were 'very' accommodating. John, the waiter, was outstanding.. Food was excellent and the prices very fair, especially for NYC..!!

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.

Celebrating our birthdays we started with the shaved artichoke salad and melon with prosciutto. Delicious and very generous portions. For dinner we shared grilled octopus and haystack pasta with peas in a cream sauce. Super tasty and fresh. Service was perfect. The waiter treated us to limoncello after dessert. Every aspect of the meal was perfect!

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.
