Tuscano never disappoints! It is one of our favorite restaurants in Boston. The only bad thing I can say about it is its popularity and difficulty getting a last minute reservation

The staff were very lovely and wished my partner and I happy anniversary multiple times! They gave us our space but were not under attentive. Would definitely recommend for anniversaries!

Classy yet comfortable, Toscano is a gem on Charles Street which is not to be missed by visitors to the city. If you're staying at the Liberty Hotel, take a five minute walk down the street and visit the happy locals enjoying the quiet ambience, dark wood, fine Italian wine and food and professional service. Do not miss Toscano.

Food was outstanding as usual. Venison medallions was the special and they were cooked perfectly. Pasta always out of this world. It is always a treat to dine at Toscano’s.

Toscano is consistently fabulous experience and is loved by many in the Beacon Hill community and beyond. Diners come from all over to enjoy an AMAZING meal with exceptional service. It never disappoints! From Richard and Amy to the bartender to the servers, this is the best! So thrilled to have it here in my backyard but would travel from afar if it wasn't!

Probably some of the best pasta I’ve ever had. Our service was absolutely amazing and filled out wine and water cups consistently the whole meal. Very friendly too. We were a bit early to our reservation and they say us right away. The restaurant is beautiful as well. Will definitely be returning in the future.

Toscano never fails after all these years. Impeccable pre-Christmas dinner out with my dad (90 but kicking!) and two kids (11 and 13). Service stupendous (thank you Peter) and the food just rockstar. I live in the UK so it was lovely to be back home at a favourite haunt and see it is still as perfect as memory serves.

I live 40 miles outside of Boston, so traveling to eat in town is a rare treat. Toscano’s is always worth the trip! The dishes are well-thought out, the flavors are amazing, and everything is prepared to perfection - consistently! It’s one of the rare places where everyone can go and every one of us have the same fantastic experience.

I’m a celiac, btw, so even though I can’t eat half of the menu offerings, there is still plenty for me to enjoy. I highly recommend the Taste of Honey cheese tasting, and the scallops with leeks!

Fantastic meal. Grilled calamari was terrifically tender and the trio of greens w anchovies was a delightful start. The steak was cooked perfectly and the cacciucco fabulous—so full of fish we couldn’t finish. Sorbet was hard but the selection of grappa terrific and the wine list both extensive and accessible. We enjoyed dinner and hope to return when in the area.

Toscano's has been on Charles Street for many years, and still delivers the best in food quality. Best of all was the impeccable and professional service (not always easy to find in Boston). Daniel, our waiter, was prompt, friendly and helpful with wine and food recommendations. There are many choices on the menu, in addition to daily specials. This was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences we've had in years.

We had made reservations to celebrate my husbands birthday and I had requested the window seat - and was so pleased! It only got better and better from there. The service was awesome with Peter - he was nice, funny and so professional with us all. The food was delicious and I was so happy to experience such a beautiful night to celebrate with family ~ over 28 years ago we lived in Beacon Hill and would always walk by the restaurant and peek in the windows - and would only go in for something very special - because we were young and had limited funds. So nice to come back and have an amazing time with great drinks, wine and delicious meals! Thank you!
