Great outdoor seating on a beautiful night. Server was very attentive telling us the specials of the night. Food was excellent and drinks were too!
Always a great place to go, feel comfortable and have a great meal.

Small dining room separated by dividers. The small bar was full at 6pm with no dividers at bar if that is a concern for you. Food and staff were great as usual.

Love Toscana! But-Please may attention to requests( i.e. no black pepper on entree) Also, pay attention to keeping the water glasses full ( or leave water on the table) and if you make a mistake show good customer service and comp something

We have eaten at Toscanas many times, and also taken food out.
Apparently they have changed the Chicken Marsala recipe to one with a lot of herbs. I much prefer the sweeter sauce they previously had.
Also, some of us DO NOT like kale, and wish they still offered romaine Caesar salad.
Finally, I ordered fusilli because I have always enjoyed it there. but last night it was really al dente, which, once again, is not how they used to serve it.

Please return to the way you used to be.

wonderful food, efficient but non-intrusive waiter, very calm and quiet atmosphere. previously i had been seated indoors, but this time we were outdoors - a really good choice because the seating was kept fairly separate. the waiter was particularly polite and helpful.

I and one other at my table found our meals, although delicious, a little on the salty side.

I had been to this restaurant for quite some time and always enjoyed it bit was rather disappointed in the quality of the food this time. We dined outside on their patio which was very nice and the service was quite good. Disappointed with the food however.

Comfortable atmosphere, delicious food, well stocked bar, attentive and upbeat wait staff, and the option to dine sun and rain free under their good sized tent. It’s a sure bet you’ll love Toscana in Beverly.

Food was amazing. Busy place, that’s great. Waited 45 mins after an 8:15 reservation to be sat and was told the kitchen was closing as we sat. Also great, we get that. But the whole nature of our dinner was completely rushed. We were rushed for our second round of drinks because last call is 9:30. And to top it off, “closing time” by super sonic played at 10:01 for the perfect cue to get out as they closed up the patio around us. Why have an 8:15 reservation if it doesn’t work in your schedule? I didn’t think this was the type of dive bar to shoo out diners. Again, food was really really outstanding. Bummer we couldn’t sit and savor it more.

Started with arancini in a sausage cream sauce, delicious. My meal was Carbonara and I added grilled chicken. Sauce was decent, not the best I’ve had and chicken and pancetta seemed to be a bit hard (as in twice cooked). Drinks were on the small side with the exception of the espresso martini, which was delicious. All in all, good experience. I’d go again

every thing we had was just done perfectly! Calamari, wedge salad, Eggplant Rolitini, and a pasta dish. We split everything and took enough home for another dinner! Waitress was great! Sat outside but she was still attentive and yet gave us time to relax. Perfect dinner!

This used to be a pleasure, but no more. Still no ramp on the front steps to help the elderly and infirm get inside. As for the food, just terrible. Undercooked and oversized portions, and decidedly revolting. Such a shame, after all those years of fairly decent meals there. The only good thing about the experience were the martinis, spot-on. Don't expect fine dining at this place, as yet another moderately fine dining experience goes down the drain.

Blown away by Toscana again. Their patio is just beautiful - the staff from the moment you walk in are attentive and friendly. But... the FOOD is over the top excellent. I had the bolognese and my husband had the chicken parm. Just amazing. Thank you for a wonderful experience

Make your own choice based on what you feel not what people suggest in reviews alone .
The place is pleasant and i’ve dined there before with happiness but this time around it was a disappointment in terms of food .
Servers however were very courteous and willing to accommodate us .

Food, drinks, service were all awesome. We booked outdoor seating on a hot day. Our portion of the tent was enclosed, which made the heat worse and kinda defeated the purpose of taking a Covid precaution by eating “outdoors”.

The food here was delicious and plentiful. The outdoor patio was cool and comfortable. The service left a little to be desired but I understand that is the way it is most places due to the shortness of help.

I would definitely go here again and also go to their sister restaurant in Peabody.
