I always refer to Toscano’s as the best. I have never had a bad experience there. Actually everything from the greeting, service to the quality of the food is excellent. They offer a nice choice of appitizers, entrees and great steaks all at a reasonable price.

My dinner guests and I were delighted with everything. The atmosphere is charming and warm. Our server, Peter, was very professional and very friendly. The owner, Richard, was very attentive to us. Most importantly, the food was fantastic. It was my first visit to Toscano but it will surely not be my last.

My husband and I went to Toscano about 6 weeks ago and it reminded us that we had always enjoyed Toscano, it had been a decade. We decided it's time to add it back into our "go to" places even though we now live in Chestnut Hill. All was wonderful, from the service to the food and ambiance. If you're lucky as we have been you can also get on street parking.

We were there for Easter Sunday Brunch and the seafood was unbelievably amazing.
The service and atmosphere was so classy yet not pretentious
Truly loved the flourless chocolate cake and sorbet in a martini glass was the perfect happy ending plus we reserved parking with spot hero on Charles st
Have walked by so many times glad we finally made a reservation

A few to many tables make for a less than intimate environment, but everything else is spectacular--food, service and attention to detail. Super Italian restaurant!

THE FOOD WE HAD (THREE PEOPLE) WAS WONDERFUL. HOWEVER, THE TERAMISU WAS NOTHING LIKE THE TERAMISU I'VE HAD DOZENS OF TIMES. MAYBE THIS DESSERT WHICH WAS OK COULD BE CALLED BY ANOTHER NAME AND YOU COULD CONSIDER TRADITIONAL TERAMISU.

OTHERWISE, I'M AN ITALOPHILE AND FELT RIGHT T HOME. TH DECOR IS RIGHT ON!

A birthday dinner for my 79 year old mother - it was fantastic. Food was great, service was great, ambiance was nice and cozy with a bit of surrounding energy.

The only bummer was that we came early thinking there was a bar at which to get a drink before dinner and there wasn’t - my mistake for not checking

Very disappointing. Haven’t been for a while and we were looking forward to our dinner. Last time there was very good but can’t say the same for tonight. I had the shrimp with leeks over spinach and my husband had tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms. My shrimp were evidently cooked too long because they were tough. The tagliatelle was tasteless and dry. No much else to say. The food was not even average and we probably won’t return and certainly would not recommend to friends or other family members.

I went to Toscano's as a recommendation from a friend, since I was visiting Boston with my wife and 17 year old daughter. The food and service was exceptional. The ambience and location was charming. We all enjoyed our delicious appetizers & meals and when the bill arrived I was pleasantly surprised for the quality and the overall experience it was tremendous value.
