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.

I had a fantastic time at Luigi’s! Between the food, the service, and the beautiful patio, it was such a pleasure! I would recommend the pumpkin ravioli, there amazing bread and their fantastic pear Aperol spritz with elderflower! Great place, will definitely be back! xox

Michael our server did an awesome job. Flawless. Also, the pianist was exceptional. A beautiful evening. Great New Years Eve. Thank you so much.

Disappointed in the location to where they sat us, party of 7. My friend and I had our side & backs to the hostess stand and we were hit in the head several times, not only by servers, but other patrons and even the manager.
Terrible location to sit in! The food runners would bring the apps and salads and throw the food on the table without plates. Our server was good. Food was good. All 7 had never been in before and not sure it left a lasting impression to return.

Delicious food, not pretentious, excellent service, very good wine list and delectable specials! Garlic bread did not spare the olive oil or Parmesan cheese! Noisy. Enjoyed the delicious rose’ special wine which appealed to all ages at the table. One guest broke out into an Italian-accented version of “Oh, Holy Night” on this Christmas evening and was received with loud applause by patrons. Just lovely. Pretty lights on the outdoor patio. My swordfish was charred perfectly from the grill. Pasta with olive oil and bechamel sauce was not very flavorful. Excellent buratta appetizer with prosciutto and pesto, and very fresh cannoli for dessert. Would return!!

The staff is very friendly and could not have been nicer. From the start everything was fantastic especially the garlic bead they brought to the table. The calamari fradiavolo was incredible. We also had the Chicken piccata and ricotta and pear ravioli which was very flavorful. Will make this restaurant one of our regulars.

Went for the truffle festival meal. It was disappointing because they were not actually using grated truffles in any of the dishes. However the other menu items we settled on were quite good. The carbonara was not traditional, but had a poached egg on top of the pasta which was unsettling at first, but when mixed into the pasta made a nice thick sauce after all. The servings were large.

Everything but the waiter was very good. He wasn’t rude or anything, just not very attentive...never offer fresh cracked pepper or cheese, never asked how meal was or if we wanted more drinks. The restaurant was not crowded either so I can’t give him a pass because he was overworked....I was watching, he didn’t seem to have anymore tables than other servers. But the food, ambiance and everything was great!
