Got to the restaurant 30 minutes early and they sat us down right away. The food was phenomenal and the lighting was perfect. We never received menus and found out that there are extremely small QR codes on the dessert menu located on the table. Not a lot of places do the QR scan so I think the code should be larger for people like us that don’t know about the QR code menu.

Once again great family meal. Everybody enjoyed the Limoncello martini. Ricardo was especially attentive and good to see Amanda orchestrating.

Food is good. Desserts are not with the money. Overall, it was good but very overpriced. The $60 steak was mediocre at best and unfortunately overcooked. Service was good and the atmosphere was nice but overall there are much better options for less money.

This is our favorite place to eat when we have large groups. The food is amazing and it's so easy to make a reservation. From appetizers to main dishes to desserts--so delicious! And they have gluten-free pasta you can substitute for almost any dish.

The waiter was excellent and very attentive. We were seated in the patio area. Most of the food we received was very good. The sliced pork loins however were dry and over cooked.

Our server was truly pathetic. He didn’t bring us our bread. He never refilled our drinks and hardly ever checked on us. We had to hunt him down to get our check. He didn’t ask if we wanted dessert. The list goes on and on with the pathetic service that we received from the server. Our food was delicious but my serving was like a child size serving of lasagna.
We ate here three weeks ago and it’s amazing the difference a server can make. She was outstanding and very attentive. Our experience last night was nothing like our first experience there. They also sat us right at the front door where people were coming and going and it was very cold as the door was opening and closing. Lousy experience last night very disappointing…

Been a patron for 10+ years. The food is authentic Italian, made with quality imported ingredients. The variety allows diners endless options suitable to any dietary restriction. Ambiance & staff are always kind and courteous. And by far, the best Gelato you will find anywhere in Utah, hands down. You can’t go wrong with Tuscano when looking for an affordable, yet, high-end Italian experience.

The food came out lukewarm and the waiter seemed rushed in everything. We sent one meal back to be reheated and it came back without the sauce. No manager ever came over. Not impressed by this visit.

There is variety on the menu but the quality was subpar at best. The pasta was gummy and starchy. The cream sauce was runny. The portion size was inconsistent: one pasta bowl was filled to the brim while anither barely covered the bottom of the bowl.

The food was tasty and outstanding, it was our waitress that was just awful. She acted like she was either drunk or high on some thing. She took 45 mins to even take our orders, and my sister asked for some wine that the waitress didn't even bring her the wine until she brought our checks, and we even saw it was sitting on the counter for over 30 mins before that. She kept getting everyone's checks wrong, and even after explaining who had what 4 times we were all frustrated, and just paid what was on our receipts. Will go again only cause the food was amazing, but will request another waitress if we get the same one. Also the waiters there kept breaking dishes, I've never heard so many dishes shatter in one sitting

Our waiter was so attentive and professional felt bad for him. He had to serve poor food. Cioppino was tomato soup with store bought canned garlic, no salt/pepper or any seasoning. Sauce not cooked at all no depth. Minimal seafood and taking bites of small broken pieces of mussel and clam shells. for 36$??? Carmelized nuts in beet salad were stale and the signature drink was all pineapple juice. Server added extra gin then charged us $5.50 for it. Been a bartender and would never do that to a customer! Will never go back. Suggest changing the music from massage studio to Italian..... Just a weird ambiance with very poor food. Don't waste money...drive uptown.

I was very happy with Toscano for my girlfriends birthday dinner. Their food was great, prices were good, and our service was excellent. My only two gripes were the ambience felt closer to a Chili’s with the noise level and multiple TVs on the wall, and it wasn’t a very romantic setting. I would highly recommend this place for a good dinner out, just not a special occasion.

They were understaffed, so we waited a while for service.

The appetizers were salty, over seasoned and the bread was dry.

The meals were mixed, half of our party had good meals, the other half terrible.

My fish was so dry, I could hardly eat it. The edges were burnt (and I did NOT order blackened).

The desserts were also mixed, the Keylime pie was good, the gelato was old and tasteless

We got very excited after the potato croquettes because they were so delicious as was the marinara. Unfortunately, neither mine or my husbands pastas were too impressive. I ordered the cacio e Pepe and it was sat in a pool of oil and there was almost no flavor. My husbands crab linguine also had a looser sauce and it was not super flavorful. The service was very nice though.

I am always underwhelmed by this restaurant. This place is a perfect example of the shortage of quailty Italian restaurants in Utah. This place would not survive in any other major metropolitan area except Utah. Their menu is so large now, they don't do anything well. Next up their menu will be sushi!
