    The food is delicious. Waiter suggested we do a half and half, allowing us to partake of two different entrees each. I was able to get my favorite, rigatoni, but also try the mushroom risotto. Both very very good. The prices are reasonable and cocktails are inventive. Love their panzanella salad.

    Our waiter William was charming, attentive and amazing. He made the experience even better than it would have been had he not been with us yesterday evening. The food was also tasty and interesting. We enjoyed the bustling atmosphere in the bar area.

    We love Toscano. The waiter missed a beat last night. We were intending to split a pasta entre as a second course and they brought us pasta with our main course.... a little awkward and it would have been better to separate these courses, which, being an Italian restaurant I would have thought I did not have to spell this out.

    Room is absurdly dark . I ended up having to brace my iPhone light to shine on my plate so that I could see what I was eating. I am architect who designs restaurants, and I could find no understanding of they were trying to achieve. Dimmers were under control of Maitre d', a mistake. Once I got some light, the food was excellent (medium rare steak crispy on the outside through to perfectly just past pink on inside), good veg, great appetizers). Creative help with changes in wines as we developed our order. But until they solve that problem, and can provide a glow to the table for intimacy, and develop enough ambiance. (sitting in the dark does nothing for you), I would recommend NOT going there, which is stronger that merely not recommending.

    There were four of us for dinner. We could not have been happier with our dinner at Toscano. Every item was delicious - the service was impeccable. Daniel our server was wonderful. We had a nice corner table and we felt like we were in our own little world. Toscano has a great variety of choices - especially for vegetarians. The pastas were great. The grilled swordfish was cooked perfectly. It was one of those delightfully memorable dinners. I highly recommend Toscano to you!

    Always happy dining at Toscano. It is a very well-run establishment with the highest quality food, service, and ambiance. We shared the salmon affumicato and the beet salad as starters - both were excellent. For entrees, we chose the grilled fillet of beef and the lemon sole. They were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Finally, I enjoyed the blueberry white chocolate tart for dessert - delicious without being too heavy or overly sweet. Cocktails and wine were also top-notch. Something else I really appreciate is being able to peruse an actual physical menu rather than having to rely on a QR code and smart phone menu. Toscano gets it right on all counts. Highly recommended.

    In addition to everything else I love about Toscano, with a varied menu they are still more than willing to graciously accomodate requests for changes. My last visit, I switched out salmon for extra shrimp and scallops in my dish. It worked out fine. Cozy while at the same time elegant and relaxed, it is the perfect place to dine and my favorite restaurant in Boston.
