It is legitimately terrible food. Atmosphere is cool, and service was fine, but the food sucks. Worse than Olive Garden

The restaurant is quite lovely with window on 3 sides. We were seated in a nice booth. They were out of bread, but “found” some just as our pasta dishes were coming out. One of our orders didn’t go through, so we had to wait extra time for that, but we thoroughly enjoyed the appetizers, & it was a pleasant dining experience. We will dine there again.

Our waitress seemed high on drugs, they were busy when we arrived and even when the rush was over we were still waiting for our food , took an hour and 20 min to get our food on the table and we saw the waitress 3 times. Had to constantly ask other employees for refills, the bill, everything. We will not be going back.

The food was great, The Gelato is not great. you could tell that none of it was fresh, and all of it was too frozen and icy, not smooth and creamy as gelato should be.

From the moment we were greeted, we felt as if we were not being treated as guests in a restaurant should be treated. We asked for a booth, and we were placed in a huge booth. It took about 15 minutes to even get water, after we asked the hostess. We finally was waited on by a very nice young woman, whom made up for the frustration that we had experienced. WE both felt the food was not up to par, and were looking forward to a new Italian restaurant close to our house, but, for $118 there was no service, value of food and service and the food frankly was blah.

Online reservation form asked if our visit was a special occasion. I indicated it was a birthday. No mention or recognition was made. The pre-entree bread and butter was good. We both ordered the special of the day - Salmon with asparagus, baby carrots and mashed potatoes. Both plates arrived cold. We sent them back and the replacements were slightly warmer but nowhere near hot. All but ONE of the asparagus stalks had disappeared from my plate, and the carrots had noticeably diminished in number as well. The bill was 'served' to us without having been asked if we 'd like to try a dessert. I ordered Tiramisu Gelato, which was sticky, gooey, tasted old, and contained one LARGE unbreakable, chunk of what must have been badly freezer-burned, scraped-from-the-side-of-the-carton, gelato. The whole experience was extremely disappointing and I will be discouraging others from trying this restaurant.

We had reservations for a party of 9 on a Sunday night, restaurant wasn’t crowded. Drinks took 20 minutes and a recovering alcoholic in our group was served a gin and tonic instead of the tonic and lime he ordered, we had to flag or server down for appetizers orders and water refills. When we finally ordered everything was an up charge, I had the lemon basil salmon, that comes with potatoes and grilled vegetables for $23.00, I asked for a salad instead of the potatoes(up charge), no vegetables were on the plate and the salmon was 2” X 4”. All the food came out at different times, so by the time my nephews pizza came out(after being dropped once) everyone else’s food was cold. Fatty steaks, small portions, average drinks, poor service. Overall 9 of 9 were not impressed, the pork chop did get a thumbs up, in defense of ore server, my family is hard to wrangle.

Empty tables waited 5 minutes to get seated and it took the waiter 10 minutes to acknowledge us. 1 of the meals wasn't properly cooked. I feel if they worked on the service it could make the experience better. We lost our appetite and ended up leaving after getting undercooked food. I expected a better experience based on what I've heard.

Food at Toscanos was great. Our waiter was very good.

However, my problem with Tuscanos, was the overall management of our experience. We reserved a table for 2 for my wife's birthday. They put us on a tiny side table in the corner when there were plenty of booths available. When we asked for a booth we were told they would check and they never came back to follow up so we just gave up on that.

Second they brought our meals out about 2 minutes after they brought our salads out. I don't know about you but we don't eat salads that fast and on our tiny little table for two there was hardly room to fit all of the plates. The food was great but PIPING hot when it came out to the table...Just seems like a lot of missed management problems and when you're paying $80-90 for a dinner you expect a bit more.

We thoroughly enjoyed eating at Toscano. I love the decor. The food was delicious. Our server, Tarah, was so attentive and kind. The manager came by and greeted us. It was a lovely evening overall and it's located in Draper where we don't have a plethora of fabulous restaurants. Kudos to Toscano. We'll probably go back this weekend.

This was a "Date Night" for Kathleen and I as I was leaving town for Christmas. We sat in the bar area, had wonderful conversation and ambiance, the bruschetta had bacon on it and was wonderful and our evening with you couldn't have been better. And, Kathleen's lemon martini's were the best she's had!

The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. The restaurant décor is also nice, but don't sit too close to the door in the winter as there is a draft when people come and go. We had lunch for 7 and one of the lunch items was not delivered. The staff did not notice and I had to point this out to the hostess, who was nearby, that there was an issue. It took quite a while for the waitress to come back and figure out there was an problem and I had to ask for her to bring the salad while the meal was being prepared. By the time the meal was delivered, it went with us in a "to go" box. The restaurant did not charge for the meal, but there did not seem to be any ownership or urgency on the problem.

Delicious food and great service. Appetizers, entrees and desserts were all wonderful. Large portions, but quality as well. Server explained the sweetness of butternut squash lasagna upon ordering. We appreciated her honesty and knowlegde of the menu. Happy that Toscano is open on Sundays. We will be back.

Whenever we go to an Italian Restaurant for the first time, we always order the calamari and lasagna. We assume that if those two items are great, we'll come back again and again.

Unfortunately, on November 30, 2018, those two items were mediocre - not bad enough to complain, but not great at all.

Also, because of the pricing, we expected the ambiance to be "Classic" or "Fine Italian", but the restaurant gave off more of a "sports bar" vibe (that's all that was playing on their 5 wall-mounted TVs; nothing else was observable to us. . .and we were looking/hoping for more).

We don't plan to go again.
