Excellent Pre-Theater

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... read 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

From the minute we walked in and were greeted by the hostess to our exit from the restaurant 2 1/2 hours later we were treated as special guests. Our server was exceptional, she knew the specials and the menu and answered all our questions about the food we were interested in ordering. She even helped us pick our wine, which... More

After reading so many positive reviews, I was expecting an exceptional anniversary dinner for my wife and me. While the atmosphere was great and the service attentive, the food was only average. We had the nightly specials - a veal chop and a pasta dish. The veal chop was dry and wasn't served with any sauce or garnishes,making for a... More
