The staff was very nice and welcoming but I did not enjoy the food. Maybe I'm just hard to please with italian food as I'm italian, but I found food to be poor, it really needed more seasoning, I had to add salt on my started and on the main course. I should probably have ordered pizza as the pasta... More

You pay for what you get, and then some. As stated in most of the other reviews, the service is terrible, spaghetti was a tasteless mess and the vegetarian Calzone was out-of-this-world awful. Avoid!

Crossing a bridge over the Prinsengracht Canal a family was walking by and we asked them for their recommendations on where to go for dinner. They suggested Restaurant Toscana on Haarlemmerstraat and we took their suggestion. We ate pizza and pannenkoekje-cheese and spinach. Both were very good as well as affordable. Service was exceptional and wait time for food was... More

Toscana is an Italian pizza/pasta restaurant in the Jordaan district which is a bit quieter and more residential than Dam Square and the more popular tourist areas. The restaurant is fairly basic but popular with a mainly Dutch clientele. My wife and I chose pizzas which were both good value and tasty with generous toppings. The staff are friendly and... More

We dined here as it was recommended in Steve's' book and we generally find his advice to be good. The service was slow and indifferent, a group of young women who seemed to be bored with the whole idea of working. We shared the avocado and shrimp salad, which turned out to be shrimp mashed in with avocado and thousand... More

She served 3 other tables around us on a tiny terrace ....until after 40 mins she clicked .... well too late...we were already sooo fed up waiting... She apologised offering us... More

Can’t rate this restaurant highly enough! We were a group of 5 who dropped by on a Friday night without a reservation, and were given the option of waiting for an indoor table, or else taking an outdoor table. We didn’t want outdoor as none of us are smokers so we opted to wait at the bar and drink the... More

After a cross-Atlantic flight I love good Italian food to fill me up and ensure a good night's sleep. Toscana delivered (also was a bit ill with a cold and went there again for comfort food). We tried both pastas with salads and their delicious pizza. Salads were enough to share and full of fresh vegetables; pastas were traditional and... More

Ate here with another couple. Made reservations, and had a nice table, but it took us a very long time to get our dinner order in. The man (possibly the manager) who took our order seemed to be in a rush and he also forgot my drink. My salmon with pasta and a cream sauce and capers was very good.... More
