The tradition of Tuscany lives on with the comfortable trattoria featuring mouth-watering Northern Italian specialties. The beauty of the restaurant is the perfect compliment to the enticing cuisine. Homemade pastas, gourmet pizzas baked in a wood-burning oven & tender veal grilled to perfection are just a few of the Tuscan favorites awaiting you. An incredible wine selection complimented by exceptional service creates the ultimate dining experience. Tuscany truly captures the warmth of North Shore dining.

Celebrated my birthday here because we’ve had positive experiences in the past. Service was the worst we’ve had in a long time! The waiter disappeared regularly and was not attentive to our needs.

My husband ordered rack of lamb from the menu. It was supposed to have a wine sauce and veggies. Instead the rack was plopped on the plate with a side of potatoes and no sauce. Very disappointing. Shrimp and scallops special was excellent!

“Side” salads are ridiculously expensive.

We won’t rush back.

We haven't been here for a while and wanted a cozier Italian dinner place for our farewell dinner for a close family couple who were going back home after a vacation. We were pleasantly surprised with the great ambiance, food and service. We had great attentive service from our wait staff - Mario was very helpful to our guests in speaking Spanish with them and explaining the menu items. We will definitely return for dinner again soon.

My husband and I love this restaurant. It's the best food we've eaten outside of Italy. The service is always very sharp. There's always a good mix of people in here having family dinners, romantic dates, group dinners and business dinners. This is a sophisticated place to eat that won't blow your budget too much.

My wife and I had dinner and started with vodka on the rocks. The chef went off the menu that night to make a breaded artichoke dish that is sometimes on the specials appetizer menu...it was delicious. My wife had a beautiful salad and I had angel hair pasta with arrabiata gravy. Great food and atmosphere with friendly servers and managers. It is a neighborhood gem.

Prices are climbing to the point where it will no longer be a good choice at the next increase Our server however was excellent. He took care of our family matriarch first, then the rest of the ladies and finally our gentleman. He was attentive but not overbearing. Her split the calamari app for us which was nice but it covered up the fact that it is way overpriced now at $15 for basically four small piles (maybe 22 pieces max.)
Veal Marsala with housemade fettucini was sublime with tons of mushrooms and compared to the calamari a much better value at $30.
Chicken Valdostana was good but not great - it was missing dome salt and unami.
The free birthday cake for one of our group was a nice touch.

It was just ok. Nothing really special to bring me back.

There were 4 of us and spent an average of $50.00 per person. For that price I want to love my meal.

Dry egg noodles with mushy eggplant will not get me to return.

My wife and I decided to come here for our 7th anniversary as this was the restaurant we came on our first date. I based my overall score on the fact that the value of the meal for what we paid was not equal. When we first came here, I remember it being more of a special moment, food was better for what you pay. The service and ambiance was very nice, they sat us early and everyone on the wait staff/team were attentive and friendly.

Party of 5 at 6:30 pm on a Saturday...table was ready, service was timely, food was awesome! I always recommend the grilled octopus and the wild boar ragu. I wasn't disappointed, nor were my guests. Excellent wine selections as well. A few choices for the vegetarian in my group, which is nice. Will be back!

Honestly not good or bad. Food is definitely overpriced for the quality you get though. Service was iffy at the start, but became consistent after ordering. I would have expected better from a basically empty restaurant at the time for dinner.

Service was terrible. We had to literally find our waiter to take our order. A different waiter eventually took it. The original waiter still took forever to come back to our table for anything after that. Not the best experience. Very disappointed.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary. We started with a nice glass of red wine and great Italian bread for dipping in olive oil. For entrees, my wife had eggplant Parmesan and I had black Sea bass on a bed of vegetables. Both of the meals were wonderful and cooked to our taste. Service was excellent. For dessert, the chef prepared a chocolate tort in a beautifully decorated plate. It was a lovely night to remember. Tuscany is truly a neighborhood gem.

Sat at the bar this time and Danny the bartender was very attentive and poured perfect drinks. Mondays are 1/2 price bottles of wine so that was great. Food was outstanding and the Manager Mike was a class act and noticed that he greets and say's good bye to all of the customers which is what every Manager should be doing at all restaurants unfortunately that just does not happen. Will definitely be back. Thank you, Tuscany!!

We made reservations well in advance for my wife's and mother in law's birthday and came early (5:15) so as not to deal with crowds as we also notified well in advance that we would have an infant.

The service was incredibly slow and they got an order wrong so that by the time they got around to the cake, my granddaughter was so wound up that we just had to leave.

I had great intentions but those problems basically ruined the evening.

The server didn't even offer to comp the meal delivered late.

Very disappointed. We were here a few years ago and I remember it as quite good. Not this time! I had the margarita pizza. Lots of noodles and lots of cheese, but a sauce with almost no meat, no tomatoes, and no spices; flavorless. My friends each had a margarita pizza, which should have had fresh tomato slices and slices of fresh mozzarella; had neither. What they got was a basic cheese pizza. My wife had shrimp and broccoli over penne pasta with marinara sauce. Again, they "forgot" the spices in the sauce.

Initially, we were happy with our waiter. He was personable and on task. However, when about half way thru our meal, he got a table of about ten and we were basically "forgotten." We waited...and waited for dessert and then after dessert, we waited another almost ten minutes before we could finally get his attention for the check.

Not going back.
