We dined outside in front of restaurant as we love watching the world go by! Service was excellent and food was delicious! I had spaghetti carbonara w homemade pasta and smoked bacon and prosciutto (I think- 2 kinds of diced meat were in it) and topped w a poached egg. It was so good! No heavy cream or gobs of garlic- just fresh, tasty and light! Nice sized portion- I couldn’t finish it. Not enough for two on its own, but could share w a salad and an app or soup. Very authentic!

This was our second time at T/Grill. I asked for a "quiet table" away from the bar because the first time we were there the noise level was alarming and my husband said "never again".... It was a Saturday nite. Monday was a different story and they even called to explain about the "quiet table" business. We were out doors and noise wasn't an issue. The food was excellent again, the service was, also. Yes, we shall return, but maybe not until fall, as we head north for six months!

We have been going to this spot for years. The food, ambience, and service are wonderful. The garlic bread is the best. We had a wonderful, patient waiter named stanley who was great. Great Fort Lauderdale spot with an acceptable noise level. We'll bre there again very soon.

I would return if just for the grilled octopus salad. Amazing dish. Truffle pizza was very good. Eggplant parmesan was mediocre imo, and the carbonara was too oily for my taste. Average service. Nice waterfront area to eat in.

Great food in a large outdoor space! Service was pleasant and attentive. Lots of evening specials - which we selected. All well prepared. The Sea Bass piccata was excellent. The shrimp appetizer - 2 huge shrimp was well prepared, but a pricey ($24). The salad and gnocchi selected by my companion was excel. Nice choice of Italian wines.

A great find! We love Italian food and Boston provides us great opportunities to enjoy some of the best so we can be picky. Tuscan Grill was delicious, well prepared Italian food. My experience is that is hard to find outside of the cities with large italoAmerican populations. The service was good. The room was a bit crowded but worth it for sure.

On a busy Saturday night, we were seated promptly for an 8 pm reservation. It took a few minutes for the waiter to give us his full attention, but when he was freed up, he was on it! All 4 of us enjoyed our meals. We had spicy seafood marinara, lamb chops, red snapper piccata(5*) and sea bass. We shared a piece of light cheesecake for dessert.

We have been coming to the Tuscan Grille before Luigi Pizza became part owner. The food is always 5 star. It is one we trust to go to when out of town guest visit and we walk from the house. We have never been disappointed in the many years it has been there. We have lived in the neighborhood for 16 years and I believe they have been there for most of those years. Put it on your list of consistently good food and experience.

Valentine's day found 4 of us dining at Tuscan, an Italian eatery on Las Olas. A couple of months ago my wife and I took two out of town friends to dinner on Las Olas. Our original goal was to dine across the street at the wildly popular Louie Bossi's but the wait was way too long so we crossed the street and got seated immediately at Tuscan Grill. Because of that good experience we made reservations at Tuscan Grill for the big date night. We were not disappointed. We arrived on time and were seated immediately. I had requested an outside table and they walked us downstairs to an outside table by the river which was very nice. The noise level was moderate making for a very enjoyable pre-meal chat. We started with calamari and an order of meatballs. The calamari could have been a little crisper but was still very good. The same held true of the meatballs, very tasty but they could have been warmer. Then on to a salad for the table which was rather pedestrian but satisfying nonetheless. My wife had the putenesca, not a dish I care for but she enjoyed it. Our friends had a chicken dish that they raved about. I enjoyed my spaghetti carbonara as much this time as I did the last time. I think I will have trouble ordering anything different, I like it that much. Dessert was chocolate lava case for the table with a vanilla gellato that was the star of the night (the gellato that is). We only got one order for the table so as to leave room for our after dinner walk to et gellato cones just down the street. All in all the dinner was very good, priced reasonably, served reliably and good enough to come back again!

It’s kind of tight outside and noises but very nice. I prefer outside than inside. Near the water and pretty lights. Food is amazing, service is good, and parking garage near the restaurant. They took a while to give refills and pizza isn’t that great. Pastas, bread, everything else is amazing in this place. Wine and dessert is excellent as well

Dining on the outside patio is very pleasant. Service is excellent. The pizza and pasta were very good. Their website or Open Table entry should be more helpful for parking. There’s a structure with direct access but it’s not easy to find. Still, highly recommended.
