Food rating 4 because the chicken marsala was just ok and very small portion for $26. The butternut lasagna with steak on top was amazing. You have to eat it there bc taking it home is a terrible left over. It's a big portion so be hungry!

Service rating a 2 because we made the reservation under the notes that it was our anniversary. I didn't need a special Entourage or anything, but a comment from hostess saying happy anniversary, or maybe the waiter could have been notified to acknowledge it, anything. We did have a coupon the waiter showed manager about our anniversary, and STILL nothing. We walked out of there and my husband didn't care but i felt just that - nobody cared.

Food was pretty good. Service was great. Server was very attentive to us. He kept checking on us every few minutes. Because of that we were in and out very fast. Have a good kids menu.

We had mixed feelings about our experience as Toscano. Some meals had generous portions, but some had meager portions. Especially given the price of an entree, we did not think this was good value for the money. For example, my son ordered Chicken Parmesan, and his meal had a very large piece of breaded chicken on a bed of pasta. My wife and I each ordered Chicken Marsala, and we received a small chicken breast - 1/3 to 1/2 the size of what my son received - and a huge pile of noodles with three asparagus spears. The Chicken Marsala dish cost $25, which is high compared to other restaurants, and the portion was very disappointing.

On the plus side, the waiter was very attentive, made good suggestions on the menu, and offered to bring the children's meals out at the same time as the appetizers. The appetizers (baked brie and cheese bread) were good and well-sized.

While we were at our table, we heard another patron loudly complaining to the manager about poor service and some incorrect dish. Our conclusion is that we will explore other restaurants before returning to Toscano.

The food served was good however, half the meals that were served to the table first came out warm at best. The food should have been placed under a heating surface to keep all the meals hot.
Also I was mislead on the menu with the salads that were ordered along with the meal. We were to assume the salads were part of the meals ordered. Instead I was charged for these salads that had little to no dressing on them. I requested additional dressing be brought to the table for the salads.
With the amount of the bill being almost $500 I would have expected more from the restaurant of that caliber.

The entrance needs more lighting and better signs. It is very easy to pass it and then a bit complicated to turn around to get to it again.

Great service from our waiter. Food was okay but bland tasting. Don't order the cocktails because they don't give you enough to justify the price they charge. Also the wine by the glass was a joke and pretty much a couple sips. We all wanted to try it out but now know and won't be coming back.

Love the Chef’s Favorites. The Salmon Caponata was superb. My husband and son raved about the scallops. My son and his girlfriend enjoyed the cannoli. Our tiramisu wasn’t the best. We liked the previous recipe that Toscano served.

I'm a foodie through and through. I was raised in a catering family as well as seek dining experiences everywhere I travel. I've done a fair amount of travel for business and pleasure. The food here was very good, it was among the better Italian restaurants that I've been to. I had the 4 Cheese Ravioli and the Chocolate Lava cake. The Ravioli was very good and the Chocolate Lava cake was a 10! The texture, flavor, and moisture level was perfect. The only down side to our experience was that our waiter had too many tables. He was spread really thin and barely checked on us. When he did, I was able to get a couple words out before he was off and running without getting to finish what I wanted. I very much dislike places that I have to beg to take my full order.

Nice place, service was excellent. Food was different than expected and my pork was over cooked but I do like mine rarer than most. Still overall very tasty. My wife had the salmon with red pepper sauce which to us tasted like marinara. She's not a big red tomato sauce fan but the salmon was cooked perfectly. Despite that we will be back to try different items.

First time dining there. The only reason I would consider not coming back? Our waiter just had no fine dining experience. (Might want to iron your shirt) He spoke to fast, his actions were rushed, and because of that ... it makes for rushed and hurried feel. He was also assisted by others who did not take our order, to deliver our dishes, therefore it was a guessing game around the table as to who ordered what? A little stingy with the bread, and had to ask for the dipping oil.

Front desk hostess had no idea how long the wait would be. Food was so bland, the fruta di mare tasted like plain tomato sauce and one of the mussels wasn't even open. Terrible dining experience and horribly overpriced.

We celebrated our Anniversary at Toscano Friday night. Our waiter was very attentive and our food was amazing (as always). They do need to teach their bartender how to make a mojito. One little sprig of mint floating in the drink does not make a mojito! Overall, we really enjoy Toscano for special occasions.

Toscano has a lovely welcoming space with excellent service and thoughtful, well-executed food.
The two of us shared the cappellini alle vongole (angel hair pasta and small, tender clams) in a white wine, butter and cherry tomato sauce. The pasta was seasoned and perfectly cooked, the clams gave the sauce a wonderfully briny flavor and the staff was great about plating the dish for two. We recommend this dish and this restaurant.

Our kids were at Toscano with a group of friends before their homecoming dance. The staff was awesome!! I stopped in a couple of hours before the reservation and they were able to accommodate their group adding a few extra kids that joined them at the last minute. Table in the garden area was so fun. Report from the kids was that the food was fantastic, too. They had a great time and were treated so well by the staff. What a wonderful and memorable experience for the kids! Thank you Toscano!

The food was decent but not as impressive as I would have hoped. The ambiance was excellent, but I felt like the quality of the chicken parm and the salad we had were lacking. Not bad, just not great either.

Service was excellent. Everyone was polite and met all our needs/requests perfectly

Our server was attentive, and the staff very pleasant, but the ambience of the building is poor, it looks and feels run down. The bartender DOD NOT know how to make me a proper mojito, or my wife’s peach bellini (unacceptable to not have a competent bar tender working on a Friday night, especially charging $10 each for the drinks. Our entrees were good, but the tomatoes in my wife’s salad were shriveled and moldy, and the whole salad was drowning in dressing. For the price I was very disappointed in my experience.

We have been bringing clients and friends and family to Toscano for about 10 years. I was very disappointed in our experience this time. First let me say the service was exceptional. However the food was below expectations. One in our party ordered the salmon caponata. The polenta was tasteless and the salmon was overcooked and dry. The meal was inedible. The mussels and meatballs that we ordered for appetizers were very good. The tuna special was also very good. Another in our party ordered a salmon Caesar salad and the salmon was dry and over-cooked. The paparadelle was just average. It seems as though the prices have gone up and the food quality has gone down. It’s too bad. Now there are several good restaurants in the area to choose from which has not always been the case. Competition is getting stiff and restaurants need to be on their toes. It seems like something is slipping.

The atmosphere and service was really good. The staff did a great job and were very attentive.
Overall, the food was good but not great. my Veal Saltimbocca was way over cooked and dry. Almost like shoe leather.
Some of the food items had missing elements mentioned that the particular course was supposed to have based on the menu description.
