We went to celebrate our anniversary and it was a wonderful dinner. The service was on point and our waitress, Kim, was friendly and informative. The atmosphere was romantic and elegant without feeling stuffy. My husband had the dry aged steak and said it was one of the best he has ever had!

Absolutely perfect! Most restaurants fall short of excellence when handling a holiday or special occasion. Toscano’s steps up their game and exceeds their normal level of outstanding. The shrimp cocktail appetizer was beyond excellent and the veal tomahawk was perfect. My daughter’s mussels were the best we have ever had. The osso buco/pasta special was superb as was my wife’s chicken encaroza.

Toscano’s is by far the best restaurant in New Jersey.

Toscano is one of my favorite places to eat, so I was glad to finally use a gift cert from Christmas. We usually get a fantastic server, Kathy I believe, but this time we had the misfortune of getting Matt. After he read the specials (like a robot), I asked if they had the gnocci osso bucco, which all regulars know is a regular addition to the menu. He says, " oh yeah we can do that for you", as though its possible to whip up a ragu of osso bucco in 10 minutes as some kind of favor when no osso bucco is on the menu ( it wasn't). So, he made a mistake, no big deal. After being MIA the entire meal, he pops over with the dessert tray, which didn't look great, and we passed. 2 seconds later the table next to me is getting served bread pudding and another dessert not on the tray we were showed. When I asked the food runner if they were possibly out of bread pudding, she said no, they hadn't run out of anything. I then asked her to find out every dessert that was on the menu that night, and let me know what they all were. (I know, I just couldn't let it go) She went in the back, had a word with Robot Matt, and then I never saw either one for the rest of the night. Next time you want to rush your station out the door and go home early Matt, just stop over and tell me so. It would be less insulting than rushing me out like I'm an idiot. As for the food, apps and pasta course we ordered were good, not as good as I've had here. My stuffed veal chop was good, with a tasty preparation of spinach, fontina cheese and prosciutto, just not very tender. My wife had a chicken and shrimp fra diavolo that was not edible and swimming in sauce. That is a recurring theme here and at the sister restaurant Ravello...too much sauce. This indicates that there are not Italians doing the cooking in the kitchen, because no Italian drenches food and especially pasta in sauce this way. Really disappointed to have such a bad experience at a favorite spot.

Steak came out on a nice sizzling plate but was barely warm ! How does that happen? Steak was less then good quality.When your paying 47 $ for a steak you want to enjoy it,and not have to complain.My husband thought it was awful and the waitress said the chef would want to prepare another one to his liking;however the replacement was undercooked and my husband was just over it by then and I had been finished with my dinner for some time.CONCLUSION ,don’t expect steak house quality even if your paying steak house prices!Poor customer satisfaction.

As usual for the most part the food was excellent. We enjoyed the tuna tartar special, the mussels fra diavolo, the cowboy ribeye, the scallops special were are excellent, but I most say this was the first time I didn't enjoy the porterhouse for two. We ordered medium rare and it came overcooked, when sent back the steak that did come out was then under cooked ( a first though, Usually it is cooked to perfection) It was tough, hard to chew and we ordered it medium rare.
Our waitress (Sabina) was fantastic, bubbly and very attentive. Despite, we won't hesitate to go back. One of our favorite restaurants!!

Really enjoyed the flexibility of the menu. Went out with friends, our wives each prefer Italian and the men preferred the steak. On the bone Ribeye special was outstanding, calamari was great with a sweet glaze which I didn't think I would like, but it turned out it was a hit. The meatballs were unbelievably good. Our server was amazing super friendly and well informed, place was a little loud but the server was prepared and made sure everyone heard everything she said. I will return, it was a little more expensive than I expected but worth it.

My wife had the seared tuna special and said that it was the best meal she’d ever had . I had the stuffed veal chop and it was out of this world. The tri-color beet salad was absolutely the best salad I have ever eaten.

As has been the case in previous visits , the service was average. The waiter spilled half of my wine on the table cloth. When this was pointed out in a very polite way, he shrugged and walked away.

Go for the wonderful food and not the service.

Our waitress was the best! Professional, friendly, knowledgeable... the food was beyond good. The calamari appetizer was absolutely delicious. The bone marrow wasn’t as good as expected. We prefer it with more of the marrow and just roasted with less sauce or no sauce. Everything else was excellent and we cannot wait until the next time. Even our dog enjoyed the dinner (see bone from the tomahawk ribeye)

Service was excellent and the food was amazing!! We had the calamari for a appetizer witch was excellent and my wife had a special Day Boat Scallops that she loved and for me I had the Allen Brothers NY strip and was absolutely delicious! With that I had Truffle Parmesan Fries in which I could not finish so we bought them home for the next day. We warmed them up in a low broil the next day and they may have been even better the night before!! Will definitely visit there again this was our first time there and it was a home run!! I highly recommend Toscano to everyone if you love fabulous food!!
