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!

Toscana is consistently good. It is my "go-to" local restaurant...Convenient, courteous parking which is a must...food excellent. Service from management and staff excellent. I can't recommend it highly enough. I'm always ready to schedule lunch or dinner at Toscana

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

Service was poor. The waiter forgot our pizza but was kind enough to comp it after I told him he forgot it when our main courses came. He then digit our roasted potato order and a salad. We got the salad but didn’t ever get the potatoes but it was charged for. This place is a staple for me but I sometimes feel they think they are doing me a favor instead of realizing the value of a regular customer. Lately they have lost that living feeling.

The place had no ambience at all. The staff was scrambling to get tables together. They were laughing with each other and were very loud. The tables are tiny and the place is super bright. The food was good but a very limited menu. First time i’Ve ever been disappointed in the reviews for a place. This was so off, I will make sure I never go back there.

The more I go to Toscana the more I like it. This was a get together with a friend/client I had not seen in years. She drove all the way from Long Beach. The weather was awful. Toscana perfect for a rainy daylong lunch and good talk. We each had pasta--delicious. Service perfect. Lunch much more quiet than dinner when there are too many tables with kids, but still like Toscana.
This is my go to lunch place now that Bouchon Beverly Hills is gone. And it is closer to home. Win-Win.

Had an early supper on New Years Eve, service was excellent. I liked that they allowed wine tasting even for a glass of wine order. Having been to Tuscany I felt the food was authentic to the region. Overall good food and service so I will return. The restaurant is in a nondescript building so minimal wow factor from the outside.
