Our experience at Toscano was fantastic. It was our first time but hopefully not our last. We started with a meat and cheese antipasti that was simple but delicious. I had the cod special, and the cod was so fresh I swear it had to be caught only for me.
Cooked to perfection with a sauce that complimented but didn't overpower. My husband's chicken dish was loaded with flavor. Peter our server was the absolute best. There when we needed him, even to recommend the perfect white wine for my fish. The white chocolate cheesecake and espresso finished a most excellent meal. Considering that we choose Toscano only because they had the time we needed we lucked out.

Delicious meal, attentive service, beautiful restaurant and excellent price point esp with the wine. Much better than most North End high volume tourist-y restaurants serving industrial strength Italian. This place is fantastic all around. The Osso Buco was phenomenal and risottos were perfection!

My salmon was cooked to perfection.

Staff was perfectly attentive and not overbearing.

Toscano is always my first choice for a restaurant on Beacon Hill.

My pasta was undercooked (not al dente, but actually crunchy in some places) and the sauce tasted like canned mushrooms cooked in margarine. Need I say more?

We had a lovely anniversary dinner at Toscana. The interior is beautiful and romantic. It can definitely get noisy though during busy dinner hours, which was the only reason I removed a star for ambiance. Other than that, our service was so thoughtful and attentive. The food was amazing, we had the mussel appetizer, the zucchini risotto special and the pork tenderloin. The restaurant even treated us to a dessert for our occasion! It was a lovely experience I would recommend to anyone looking for a lively quality meal in Beacon Hill.

My wife and I went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and everything was perfect from beginning to end. The food was the absolutely delicious. We had a fantastic time and was surprised by a complimentary dessert to help us celebrate. I can not say enough good things about this place. We will definitely be back.

The food was delicious but very large portions. Unfortunately the noise level was extremely high which made the experience less than delightful. We did ask our server to turn up the lights as it was too dark to read the menu. He did.

From walking in the door, to saying good night and thank you, it was a near perfect experience. The noise level, in the full room was a bit harsh; but even that did not detract from the evening. I am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch.

So glad Toscano is back. We missed you. This was the BEST service we've had since before the pandemic: prompt but not hovering, not pretentious, always there if you need them. A bit noisy in the center tables--ask for the smaller room toward the back. We always love going to Toscano for special occasions, and this experience reinforced that belief.

Pretty restaurant on charming Charles Street, had outdoor seating and indoor seating with front windows open to the air. Service was quite good, unfortunately the food just isn’t inspiring at all, just overpriced average spaghetti. Still had a nice time, just wished for a better culinary quality for the price.
