We had a lovely dinner with great service and a fantastic meal. Just slightly noisy because of a very loud table seated at the same time unfortunately

Food was tasteless. Mac and cheese was soupy and disappointing. Flies in food.

The restuarant had soft lighting and great ambience. On a Monday night it was packed so that was a good sign for our first trip. The food was very good. We did not get the steaks but they looked amazing as many people in the restaurant ordered steak. Our server Samantha was personable, helpful to us newbies and very knowledgable about the dishes. Highly recommend!

The waiter told us at a 4pm reservation that we had 2 hours to finish our meal and needed to order after driving 1 hour and there is no parking to be found. Have never been treated so rudely and the food was below par. Veal chop was tough and streak is over priced. Nothing was mentioned on site about a 2 hour table limit and the waiter was rude to mention this after we ordered. Would never go back here again, for some reason they think they have a Manhattan but forgot they are in Bordentown NJ.

A special occasion w: several work associates. Celebrating a 15 yr work anniversary. Menu was amazing! My only thought was to include a written “special” menu, no one at the table could remember all of the specials! Food was incredible!
We enjoyed the following items from the menu:
Onion soup w/ short ribs, lobster bisque, ahi tuna tacos, burrata w/ fig jam n arugula. Incredible! Seasonal cocktails were so nice! Our entrees were spectacular. Bone in filet as a special, tuna special, shrimp franchise & salmon were delightful. Pappardelle w/ bolognese were delightful. We are never disappointed here. Our only comment was they were so busy we had to wait to enjoy our Pinot noir w/ our dinner. The bar was slow w/ all of our cocktails. I thought that’s were restaurants make their money?
Menu is so wonderful here & our server was spectacular. We will definitely be back.

Dinner was outstanding as always but service was lacking. Was never asked if we wanted coffee or anything else with our dessert I understand it was a Sunday evening but for the cost of the meal service needs to be top notched. Also disappointing that owner or bartender never said thank you as we left.

A lovely meal. Food delicious, well presented, service outstanding. Gene was diner oriented without being overbearing. Cocktails delightful.

Suggestion: bread on table without being requested.

Outstanding food. Great porterhouse steak. Generous drinks. Service a little slow due to staff shortage but well worth the extra wait. Outdoor seating was very comfortable.

Enjoyed lunch tremendously! Everything was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent. Sorry to say I forgot our server’s name but it was only his third day. He was very personable and really helped us make our selections for appetizers and entrees. A very cozy, intimate spot makes it enjoyable for conversation. Party of 4.

This is probably our favorite restaurant in NJ. For us, it’s definitely a special occasion restaurant, but they never fail to impress. Specials are always out of this world, but the daily menu is amazing as well. We got the oysters on the half shell and the Burratta special for appetizers - the oysters were fresh and delicious and the Burratta with arugula, apple jam and prosciutto was a perfect bite. For dinner I had the dry aged NY Strip cooked to perfection with the mashed potatoes and the best Brussels sprouts I have ever had. My wife had the delicious Linguini Carbonara - my sons had the Chicken Parm with gnocchi and the Ahi Tuna appetizer (as an entree) - all were incredible delicious. I also must say, their desserts are always incredible, but I have to get the zabaglione - custard perfection!! The boys got ice cream and my wife got a delicious bread pudding.

All in all, you can’t go wrong here - I’m always conflicted because their pasta is sooooo good, but I HAVE to get a steak - can’t pass it up!

Thank you for a wonderful evening!

very polite, professional and helpful waitstaff...dinner was very good.

only problem for me (hip and knee surgeries) were the steps to upper dining level
and to the rest rooms.

otherwise a very good "white tablecloth" restaurant.

Everything was great. Highly recommend. But do ask what the “market price” is on those menu items. My husband’s 6 raw oysters cost $22!

Toscano never disappoints. Our group chose the mixed green salad, calamari and zucchini blossoms as appetizers. Recommend them all. Dinner entrees all terrific. Brought a candle in some ice cream for our birthday guest, but the service was the best! Thanks!

We love Toscanini. The food is amazing, service is great and wine selection is good. The only downside is that it is very noisy in the dining room. We try to book later so that the crowd noise may subside a bit as it becomes less crowded. I highly recommend though.

Another Incredible Meal!! Toscano’s is our favorite local restaurant. We are fortunate we live close by. We celebrated my sister’s birthday with our 3 children & we had another fabulous meal!
We started with cocktails, martinis, old fashions, Manhattans which were all perfect. Appetizers of lobster bisque, calamari, clams casino & truffle fries. We moved onto entrees of filet, pasta w/ crab, bone in filet & 2 specials of a veal chop w crab, shrimp & a Marsala sauce over mashed potatoes w/ asparagus! Outrageous!! The special -veal chop was huge & enough for an entire dinner the next day. We all agreed it was the best entree. We enjoyed a nice Pinot noir w/ dinner.
Service was perfect. Professional & attentive. We ended our meal sharing a lemon bluberry creme brûlée & expresso martinis.
Thank you Toscanos. You continue to impress us w/ delightful eating experiences without traveling to Philly.
Bravo
