Toscano Harvard Square
Need to book at 9:45 AM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Toscano Harvard Square goes up and down, and sometimes is better at lunch than dinner. Just now, it seems to be in a not so good phase for lunch. My Tagliatelli Boscaiola seemed to have canned mushrooms in the sauce.
This is one of my favorite places to take friends. The menu is very good and the food outstanding. The Service is always top notch
Great food, great service and convenient to all that is happening in Harvard Square.
My dear friend have a lovely luncheon each month to celebrate friendship. we have tried many restaurants and find Toscano's the loveliest. We will be their next month Rosanne
Good food and service BUT ridiculously low chairs requiring one to fold up one’s coat as a booster. I hadn’t been to Toscano’s in a year and had forgotten how uncomfortable the seating is. Makes one feel like a child again
We went for New Years dinner and it was great as always
We had a lovely lunch eating eggplant parmesan which was delicious. The service was excellent as was the ambience.
We really wanted to like this place as the ambiance was so nice but unfortunately the server was very destructive. He poured tea in my boyfriends lap and barely apologized. The food was also fine but not impressive.
We were five people around a round table meant for 6 -8 and it was therefore very difficult to hear across the table. In my view, we should have been placed at a much smaller table; this would have felt cozy and we could have had one conversation. Some of us enjoyed our meals more than others. Two of us got the shrimp and it was overdone and not all that tasty. While our service was very good, our dinner overall was disappointing.
best place to eat when going to ART....also, love the location on Beacon Hill
Great for dinner before the A.R.T. It's just a block down the road.
The seated us early - wonderful risotto. I look forward to my return dining!
Excellent food. Great service. Very attentive but not overwhelming. Lovely place.
Always a great experience. We enjoy both locations. The consistency in the food and service keeps us coming back!
The food is not so good anymore. My partner’s venison was seriously overcooked, and accompanying carrots almost raw.
My veal was just so so. Made a reservation months ago, and they seated us in the bar area, with bar tv and two reflections of bar tv staring me in the face all night.
Great dinner after the theater! Food was delicious and service was excellent,
Toscano Harvard Square never disappoints. It is a place we can count on to have a lovely dinner with nice service and terrific menu options. We love Harvard Square, but many places there are more suitable for a quick lunch. Toscano provides a lovely setting for a more elegant meal. Everything about its presentation is a cut above.
Always a pleasure to dine here before theater. This time the staff went above and beyond, calling me to let me know I had left my credit card. They cheerfully offered to mail it when they discovered I was too far to return and pick up myself. Service plus outstanding food....what more could one ask?
Our food and service could not have been better. To make things approach perfect, find a way to dampen the sound. It was very hard to carry on any conversation with my companion without shouting!
Great dinner before a show at the A.R.T. They gave us a 10% discount too for attending the show, and easily accommodated a gluten free diet. Everything was superb! Always has been one of my favorites in Harvard Square.
Decided on one of the specials. Porchini mushroom raviolis with prosciutto in a cream sauce. Molto bene!!! Appetizer was bruschetta and finished off with a blueberry white chocolate torte.
Excellent food, as usual.
Always a good go to in Harvard square where the sit down restaurant options continue to disappear. Good food generally as well as device. Felt a bit rushed this time but in the whole continues to be a good dining choice.
As a former employee of Toscano its always amazing coming back here. The food, ambiance, and quality service always meets what needs to be expected with my trip here. To all my amazing past managers and collegues you guys rock!
great spot for pre show dinner. good food, great service. was seated in the restaurant but after seeing the bar area would have preferred sitting there. Had a great vibe!
Very poor service. Service was slow, waiter was missing for large portions of the evening, food was ok. Certainly didn’t live up to its billing as a top Boston restaurant. Won’t be back.
Service was great. They nailed the birthday dessert I requested through OpenTable so I really appreciated that.
Outstanding dinner. Great menu with a wide range of dishes. Very nice atmosphere and excellent service. Great overall experience.
Always a great experience!! Wonderful food, service and ambiance. Love it!
I've been many times before. I love the place and food. Two small things: It was my anniversary, and they brought out a piece of cake while I was in the ladies... coulda waited till we were both there. And it took a long time to bring our entrees, and I only ordered pasta w/ red sauce... But overall, a nice restaurant for special occasions.
I went last night with my wife, 21 year old daughter and her boyfriend. Everything was absolutely perfect and deserves 5 stars except one thing(or should I say one person—the hostess/Maitre ‘d. She was unpleasant from the moment I walked in the door (early) and said we were waiting on the other two and could we get a drink at the bar which we did. Before my drinks came and still on time for my reservation she came over to the bar and asked if we hadn’t already ordered drinks could we move on to our table. At that point my guests had arrived and we were simply getting a drink for a toast before moving to the table. Before I could even pay the bartender she started whisking my daughter and boyfriend to the table. My view is that her attitude was her problem and not mine but management needs to address this ASAP to get the consistent 5 stars it absolutely deserves and yes I will go back. Too good to let one bad person spoil it.
The food was delicious. The waiter was wonderful. We were not rushed in any way. I would definitely return to try another dish. The osso buco was wonderful, but there were so many dishes that I wanted to try,
Wonderful food , wine and service !
Hostess was NOT accommodating. Waiter was outstanding ( Peter). Food was very good.
We very much enjoyed our Harvard Square dining experience at Toscano. We love the Caesar salad.
All of our food was wonderfully prepared. Service was excellent nd we can wait to go bac
Always a joy to dine at Toscano. Staff and service are excellent, as is the food. We have some food allergies in our party and they are also very solicitous and accommodating.
Food was very good and the place is beautiful but i called and asked ahead of time to bring out a desert for my girlfriend’s birthday and i waited and waited for it to come and it never did. It was really upsetting for it to not come after being assured that it would be right before we arrived.
I ordered the veal and was not blown away. I was expecting something outstanding. Also I ordered sautéed spinach which did not arrive with the meal but It was quickly rectified. The venue was great. The service was pretty good. I would return yeah.
The wine was amazing and so was the dessert. The pasta wasn’t anything unusual though. Service was very good
Very very noisy
