Toscano Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We celebrated New Years a night early and had a fantastic meal. I had the scallops and leeks on the menu, which were delicious. I ended my meal with creme caramel which hit the spot. We shared four appetizers, polenta, eggplant, grilled vegetables and a caprese.
We had a very enjoyable evening and will go back again when in Boston. Loved the ambiance, food was great and our server was very friendly and accommodating as was the host when we first arrived. Ask for Table 19 - it was great - comfortable and somewhat private.
Whenever we’re in Boston or Cambridge we’ll go to the Toscano’s in Beacon Hill or Harvard Square, depending on where we’re staying. Wonderful food- great menu- reasonable prices. Service always is top-notch and the servers always are knowledgeable. Both restaurants have great ambiance. We highly recommend either of the Toscano’s.
Food was excellent. Our waiter had only been working there for 3 weeks. Perhaps that is why he never came by our table once we had our food until we were done eating. Maybe that is why he never came by to pour our wine, which we had no problem doing but expected better service for the price.
I have been past Toscana numerous times and always wondered what it would be like to eat there. I finally made it this week, as we had a gift certificate. I was surprised. I had no idea the overall experience would be this good and the prices are not "off the charts." I would definitely go again. The wood carved doors and the lighting pieces are special and add to the ambiance. The service excellent and the server had a good sense of humor - he helped us find the perfect dishes to savor and enjoy.
Toscano is the go-to restaurant for great food and outstanding service in our Beacon Hill neighborhood. Everyone is treated like family and it shows in the number of familiar faces who return again and again for exquisite dining in a friendly atmosphere. Can't say enough about the staff. They are the best.
The atmosphere and service were excellent. I had a sidecar as a cocktail and it was delicious. I started with the veal/pork meatballs and they were absolutely terrific, among the best I have ever had. My wife had the polenta with porcini - that was good, but the polenta was softer and not as crisp as we would have liked. We shared a beet and gorgonzola salad with arugula and that was excellent. We then shared the veal Milanese. The first time I ordered this it was outstanding. This time, it was somewhat overcooked with some burning on the outer crust. Still, one of our favorite restaurants in Boston.
Perfect dining area for couples or friends, older family. Food is great, priced reasonably, excellent server (we have had Becky 2 times so far, and she is wonderful along with the team that works with her). We sat a round table for 5, and it was great to have interactive conversation while eating. A new favorite spot for us.
This was an all around positive experience. We had apps through dessert and the food was absolutely delicious. Everyone in our party of five raved about their meal. The service was impeccable, and very attentive. We were there to celebrate the birthday of one of our group, and although we didn't mention it to anyone, our very-observant server picked up on it and brought his dessert with a candle and then we learned that the dessert was being comp'd.
Toscano's is what I would describe as a classy but not stuffy restaurant. I would recommend making reservations, as we did, to avoid disappointment.
