Great food and service!

After a week in Bordeaux we were craving some pasta and booked La Toscane. We were glad we did. Very simple format - 4 starters, 4 mains and 4 desserts for that day, written on a blackboard and then explained with great enthusiasm by our waiter. The food was rustic Italian and very tasty.

Most of us reviewing La Toscane emphasize the quality of the food. Quite rightly (and I would recommand their mixed salad as a starter). What I particularly enjoyed though is the care they have in offering a small but original variety of Italian wines. So when/if you are looking for an alternative to Bordeaux wine for one meal, this place... More

Although we had to wait half an hour to order, the food was worth the wait! I am vegetarian & was accommodated without complaint. My food was very good, although the buratta wasn't the best. My boyfriend though said that the meal was one of the best he had ever had. He had scallops that were beautifully presented & a... More

I've been here countless times and have never had a bad experience. Try the truffle pasta. The lunch menu is an absolute bargain. Good Italian wine list too.

I have been to this restaurant 6 times and it has never failed to impress. The staff are professional but friendly and they make you feel really at ease. The food is always superb and the wine list offers lots of choice. All this at an extremely affordable price. Wow.

Visited Toscane last year, and was delighted to find that it had moved to larger premises. The restaurant is charming as are the Staff. Cedric in particular is very helpful regarding both the food and wines. The cold meat starter with artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and fresh capers is amazing. The gnocchi main was an interesting change, and very tasty.... More

I've been a huge fan of this restaurant since its humble beginnings in a much smaller venue. The new venue is beautiful, with neo-classic styling. The tasting menu (menu de dégustation) is fantastic, and something to be savoured. Bear in mind that you'll need a little time to get through the huge range of mouthwatering dishes. The buffalo mozzarella starter... More

I am rather surprised by the superlative reviews here. I have been to this place twice, and the cuisine is rather heavy and unrefined. The wines are generally big, powerful wines, which doesn't help balance things either. The atmosphere is nice and the staff are professional, but I wouldn't return. It is very hard to find good Italian in Bordeaux.
