Tuscan Grill - Fort Lauderdale Ratings and Reviews
Great experience. Really loved the patio. Service was a little slow but my wife and I were not in a hurry. Appetizers and meal was excellent. We had calamari, meatballs and shared a Rib Eye for dinner. The steak was prepared VERY well with minimal seasoning. We would go back.
Me, my husband and brother-in-law went on Christmas day since our families were scattered around the Country this year. It was our first trip and I found them by googling places open on Christmas. It was a wonderful surprise. Everything from food to ambiance. I have already recommended it to many people and will definitely go back. It is not a large place by any means but I think that's what made it even better. But they do offer both patio/sidewalk as well as waterfront seating. Plus you get to walk Las Olas after a nice dinner, if you so choose. It was all in all a very nice experience.
The food and service were excellent. Fresh, homemade pasta and excellent grilled entrees. The ricotta and pear ravioli was incredible and was recommend by our waiter. I do not typically like sweet dishes and feared that this dish would be a bad choice but boy was I wrong. And the veal chop was incredible. Nice evening with great service. Definitely returning.
Great meal. Our server Nazir was attentive and on top of things. The fried calamari had a light batter and the marinara with it a bit of a bite of spice. We both had the bucatini . Mine as the special with shrimp and my friend had his Amatriciana style. Dessert was the lightest ricotta cheese cake I've ever had. I've dined where Chef Luigi had cooked before but this is his best venture by far and manager Gabriel makes sure everyone feels welcome.
Met friends for dinner -we had a reservation. First table where we were seated was next to the Service Table. Moved to an outdoor table - much nicer for a warm evening. The service was good, but disappointed with the food. We have been there before, and liked it better. Nice location. Also, if you want Happy Hour prices for drinks, you need to go the bar - the server doesn't have Happy Hour prices - seems strange for a small place.
Service was excellent, as was the atmosphere...a bit of old school Italian mixed with a modern vibe. Bread was amazing, and salad special was excellent (bib lettuce with blueberries, strawberries, almonds, etc. Chilean sea bass special was very good, but the papparadelle was just ok--Found the ragu/sauce just ok. Very good wine list.
Tuscan Grill has a lovely, full menu with many daily specials, particularly fish. With both indoor, outdoor and bar seating, there is a spot for everyone in this nice casual, Italian family atmosphere place where talking is possible, unlike its raucous Italian neighbor across the street. A very nice alternative with wonderful food. Buon Appetito!!
This was one of our local favorites. We loved the Pappardelle. We went this time as make up, per the new manager to make it right after a horrible experience with friends a couple days prior where one dish came out with Brilo pad particles in it. The other four, our gloated about Pappardelle only this time came out with Bolognese instead of the normal cream, mushroom, and spicy Italian sausage sauce. The waiter even tried to convince us that it was the correct sauce. We were offered one desert then. On the second visit the manager, came by and introduced himself and that's it. His make up was just a ploy for us to come in and spend another $250, horrible experience and will not be back!!!
Unfortunately, looks like the quality of the food is declining. We ordered the short rib over risotto This used to be my favorite dish but the meat was very fatty and not nearly as flavorful as it used to be. They, also, no longer bring out the plate of tomatoes and olives with the garlic bread.
Food was delicious. We had an issue when our kid spilled a water and a wine. We had some slowness with help to get it cleaned up in that we kinda had to clean a lot of it ourselves before service helped. The wine was nearly full when it spilled, and didn't get an offer to replace the wine, but we still enjoyed ourselves and plan to return.
This was to be a special evening reciprocating five friends generous hospitality while I was in town for the holidays. Unfortunately, after having called to confirm on more than one occasion, we were kept waiting for 35 minutes for our table. This is a restaurant which, when the street is busy takes walk ins.
The "assistant manager" offer an after dinner lemoncello to placate us over our wait. I suggested a comp-ed cocktail or appetizer! Neither was offered. Either would have gone a long way to overcome pent up disappointment over our wait.
The food, I hate to admit was quite food.
But......your choice.....is a long wait, with a reservation worth the wait. I say no!
We cancelled our reservation for two nights later.
We were lucky enough to have a seat in the courtyard by the water on a beautiful Florida night. Our waitress was excellent. We did. It feel rushed at any time. The food is as excellent. I had a perfect veal Milanese. The rest of the table enjoyed the eggplant as beet pastas- also delicious. The prices were reasonable as well for the atmosphere and food quality
