We are from Houston and were looking for an Italian restaurant near our hotel, The Willard. It was an easy walk. The food was excellent. Not traditional Italian as we expected when we chose this restaurant, yet exceptional in every way. But even better than the food was the service. Our server's name was Grace. We have never had a...

Old World service, great food and a nice atmosphere in one of the few district high-end restaurants that has a pre-theater program. In and out in 90 minutes to the Warner with absolutely no sacrifice of quality and service. The PT menu had plenty of options and we sampled an excellent celery root zuppe, nicely presented prosciutto w/arugula, an outstanding... More

The service and ambience are outstanding. Paolo, the manager, makes you feel very welcome. Of the courses we ordered, some were great, others were only fair. One of the main course options, the veal, was small and very fatty. In fact most of it was fat. However overall, we had a great time at this restaurant.

Took my spouse here on a date night before we went to see a show downtown. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful. I felt like it was a pretty fancy place, though there were a few tables where people were dressed down. The food was very well prepared and ascetically pleasing. The serving portions were not huge,... More

My wife booked a table for us on Friday night for my birthday. She has searched for a place that would have fresh Italian truffle as this is really what I felt like for my bd. When we arrived the hostess directly said "oh you asked for truffles". Great they knew what we were there for. Their truffle past dish... More

Excellent food, very tasty, excellent service. One small observation: a bit noisy. Good wine advice. Small portion but full of flavour. Excellent dessert. Restaurant took our last minute reservation.

I have eaten at Tosca numerous times, the latest during December. I love its so grilled octopus, and was not disappointed. A good sized portion, tender and with a bit of char. My companions enjoyed the ravioli and broiled fish. Even during a busy time, everything was perfect, including the generous and tasty bread service.

This place is really special. Everything is sheer perfection - from service, to ambiance to the food, it's immaculate. I have been there several times - once i did the seafood tasting menu. Another time did the pre-theatre menu - which by the way is a fantastic deal. Every dish is flawless and delicious - they just don't seem to... More

I can't believe we've lived here so long and just found this restaurant. From the time we walked in the door everything was excellent, the host, the service and most importantly the food. We were a party of 5 and had the three course pre theater dinner and every course was wonderful! Some of the best food i've ever eaten... More
