                  Tuscan Kitchen was awesome. The service was outstanding. Only complaint would be that the bar area doesn't lend itself for gathering. While standing at the bar have a drink, while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive, there was a table having dinner which I felt like we were intruding on.

                  Our server was fantastic and couldn’t ask for anyone better. The food was outstanding. I had the salmon and my friend had the haddock dinner and both were delicious. I wish we had room for dessert, but we were both full. Highly recommend!

                  Place was nearly empty on a Friday night; now I know why. Appetizers were pretty good. Service was good as well. The place is clean and attractive. But the entrees were not good at all. I would not eat here again.

                  The hostess service at the front of the house was about as bad as it could possibly have been. Rude and thoughtless would have been an upgrade. Everything else was very good; food and waitress service excellent. But a bad first impression took the shine off the evening.

                  We usually love this restaurant. It appeared that staff could not handle extra business yesterday with it being Mother’s Day. Sent back 2 of 3 meals, very slow service from waitstaff as well as kitchen. Manager tried very hard to make amends, but will think twice before returning here.

                  Being Mothers Day, it was busy. However, the food was not hot and it seemed to take a very long time to get our order. Our server asked us to order everything at once because it was busy, and I knew the food had been sitting there for sometime before it was brought to us. Not our typical experience. We do love Tuscan Kitchen< we just won’t go back on a special Holiday.

                  Wonderfully responsive when we asked for a table away from a busy area. Waiter Edgar was attentive yet gave us time in between courses to socialize. We did not feel rushed. Food was good but not outstanding.

                  Excellent food, excellent service. But the ambiance was so loud that my companion and I could barely hear each other talk, even though we were seated right next to each other.

                  The food was fantastic, the best calamari I've ever had. The golden beet salad had the most beats I've found in a salad and they were perfectly cooked. The only negative is that the service was a little slow. It took 45 minutes to place our food order, but many places are short staffed now so it may have been beyond their control.

                  It took the staff about 20 minutes to remember we were seated there and to get a wine menu and bread. The food was not good. We have eaten at other Tuscan Kitchens and we were surprised by how drastically worse the food was.

                  Food and service were very good. The major disappointment was the molten lava cake dessert. A few people got it and they were all cold in the middle - not molten at all. The mushroom ravioli was excellent; the special scallops risotto was disappointing as it had only about 6 small scallops that were seared a little too long.

                  I used to dine at Tuscan Kitchen a lot, however after tonight, it is safe to say I will never eat at this establishment ever again. I ordered chicken parm and it was absolutely disgusting. The pasta sauce tasted like Ragu jar sauce, pasta was not cooked fully, and the chicken was gray looking with cheese on top. The cheese didn't even fully cover the chicken, and it had an odd smell to it. The service was terrible. Our waitress skipped over us many times and didn't even check up on us when the food was delivered. Maybe if she did, I could have sent it back to the kitchen for the chefs to get it right. I do not recommended this place anymore to anyone. DO NOT EAT HERE.

                  Food was very cold when arrived. We personally don’t like complaining but this was very disappointing. We got the chicken parmigiana and we got barely any pasta. It was more like overprices pieces of chicken. There was not even enough marinara sauce.We felt as if our waiter was not giving us enough attention. People that came in after us ordered before us and even got our bread after our appetizer. We came here on multiple occasions and this was supposed to be special for my mothers birthday. But most likely will not return again.

                  Service was outstanding and the food was to die for.

                  Great food and service, same as on past visits. Disappointed that they ran out of the lamb special early in the evening.

                  Tuscan Kitchen in Burlington has wonderful ambiance and fantastic service! Ordering off menu is best! Much preferred over holiday "specials". Been here 3 times and rate 4.5 overall!

                  Reserved counter seating- got seated at table. I’m sure they were short staffed as is often the case- no one came to the table for 15 minutes….then it was to ask if anyone had helped us! No offer to see if we wanted anything to drink or appetizers….waited another 5 minutes or so. Sarah, our waitress was very apologetic and introduced us to another employee who she was training. Sarah was very good and tried the best she could to make up for the rough beginning. Overall result was nice effort- just ok overall rating.

                  Food delicious and fresh. Service excellent, attentive without overbearing. Staff worked well together. Birthday celebration and asked in open table request for a dessert with candle, They provided seamlessly no reminder to staff necessary. We commented later that we always have a great food. Service is usually good but this was outstanding. Sean is a terrific waiter. Great experience

                  Love Tuscan Kitchen food. Always so delicious. Service is wonderful. Have noticed the Appetizer portions have gotten smaller but prices have remained same. Especially the charcuterie board.

                  The wait for the host and server to arrive was a little long. The staff was great once they arrived. We suspected that we may have arrived during a shift change.

                  We were a bit disappointed. The Burlington restaurant does not offer a lunch menu so the prices were very high. I expected a better experience, I had to look around for the salt and pepper. Not going back anytime soon.

                  Food was mediocre across the board and very overpriced. Cold when should have been hot and entrees tasted reheated and without much flavor. 3 adults (two drinks each) and two young kids (ate off Children’s menus) and meal was $340.
