The al fresco setting here was very pleasant. We had a very nice pizza (pollo e pesto) and a good and elegantly-presented dessert (strawberry cake), but the chorizo pasta had a minimal sauce and a chunk of the pasta was clumped together and undercooked. Unfortunately, the service was also consistently poor. We had made a reservation in advance, and there... More

We decided to come here because it seemed to be the only place other than the pub to offer a dinner menu. We had to wait a while for a table and while waiting noted a number of young kids bussing tables and making pizza. The waitresses were also clearly poorly trained and there were not enough of them. We... More

We went with friends who raved about this place. It was a beautiful day and the place was busy. We were a large group and felt fortunate to have the table assigned even though it was cramped. It was also very hot being on the second floor. I had been told that the pizza was excellent but the truth is... More

I know Tuscany Restaurant very well from having dined there numerous times over the years. The past owners Christophe and Julie were very congenial and their food always excellent. After a long sunny day at the beach, why not going to the patio of Tuscany to complete this warm and friendly evening with a glass of wine and a meal?... More

This was not to be. First, they did not answer their phone even though they were taking carry out orders. After three attempts we decided... More

Mussel and Clam appy w focaccia for the table, really tasty white wine sauce, ordered an extra bread to finish it, too good to waste. Mushroom in truffle cream over ravioli, one of the... More

We had both lunch and dinner at Tuscany, the service and food were excellent. Pizza's for lunch and pasta for dinner, the mushroom ravioli with truffle oil was rich and oh so delicious.
