    We had the best experience at Toscano’s. From the minute we walked in everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Our server (I believe his name was Daniel) was knowledgeable and gave great recommendations. Everything was AMAZING. We will certainly be back soon!

    You can tell it used to be upscale. The service and setting remain that way, as does the price. The food, though, was really disappointing. Not at all worth the prices. I got the sense that they cut some corners to save a few bucks, but it tastes that way. I wish we would have chosen another restaurant in the area.

    A meal before a concert ….as always the service was incredible but the best part of the evening was the food, we all liked what we ordered. I had one of the specials which was sole with a dessert wine, lemon garlic…a different and excellent preparation. The prices are very reasonable. A truly great restaurant.

    Food was okay, not spectacular given the price point. The cheese starter was lackluster, the server forgot the toast and we finished most of the cheese before she finally showed up. The Branzino was very good but expensive given it was two small fillets and three pieces of potato. I will try it again but maybe sit at the bar.

    We had a late afternoon reservation and were seated promptly; our waiter arrived quickly to take our drink orders.He was fairly abrupt and did not take time to tell us about specials. The Caesar salad was very good but my entree of veal scallops pizziaola was mediocre at best —a piece of veal with cheese on top drowned in red sauce and a few roasted baby potatoes (also drowned in red sauce). This was unfortunate since I had previously had many excellent meals at Toscano. While there were plenty of empty tables in the restaurant we felt rushed to leave — not a good experience.

    My husband and I had a fabulous casual dinner. We opted to have just pizza and salad. The pizza was some of the best we have ever had. Oh my, the crust was crisp and delicious. Service was warm and friendly. Really pretty setting with a lovely ambiance. Looking forward to returning.

    Enjoyable meal. Service felt extremely rushed, even for early week night dinner. There was “zero” time between courses. Buratta was delicious, however grilled calamari was chewy, thus overcooked. Cod in crazy water lacked any hot spice. Lack luster. Cod special that evening was piccata style and was excellent, just exceptionally small cod portion. We are frequent diners at Toscano and definitely fans of the restaurant, but this particular evening , with new friends fell short.

    Toscano is one of our absolute favorite restaurants and has been for 7 years, since my (now) husband and I first went: we were dating and needed a restaurant where we could have our parents meet one another for the first time. It was wonderful (from the impeccable, knowledgeable, and attentive service to the delicious foods and lovely wines). We became engaged and had our rehearsal dinner at Toscano. Another incredible event. We have since gone regularly, taking the opportunity to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries here. It always feels special enough for a special occasion but welcoming and unpretentious so it is never uncomfortable. I cannot recommend it enough.

    Overall an excellent dinner experience! I had the penne with meat sauce and my boyfriend had the chicken Parmesan. Both were delicious! Very attentive waiter (I forgot his name) and great service. We were seated at a corner table with was perfectly cozy and romantic. 10/10 would recommend and go there again. Thank you for a wonderful dinner!

    It’s a wonderful experience all around. The staff truly know the food and wines. I had an amazing meal, probably one of the best filets of my life paired with an excellent wine recommended by our waiter (and it was not costly). I did not have room, but I sacrificed and tried dessert. The white chocolate and blueberry tart concoction is amazingggg. The blueberries make it sweet, somehow the white chocolate isn’t sweet at all. I am looking forward to my upcoming reservation!!
