Wonderful Italian Restaurant

We had a great meal here. We loved everything about it. The wine list was excellent and the prices reasonable. We had the special pasta, which was wonderful. Service was great. A great evening.

The photos are beautiful, but the taste is not. All of our dishes missed the mark. My husband ordered the sea bass. It was absolutely raw on the inside. Where is the chef? The pasta was just average. Don't order the short rib ravioli. It is served in a horrible muddy brown color sauce with no garnish. Looks like a... More

We loved this restaurant! We had a birthday dinner here while in DC and it couldn't have been better. The food and service were great. We had the beef tenderloin fillet and veal chop and both were cooked perfectly. We shared an appetizer and the kitchen split it for us without us even asking. Some places can be a little... More

Italian owner, Italian Chef, Italian cuisine (as opposed to American Italian, i.e., cheese and tomatoes paste), superior service, superior wine list, a true delight! After finding this place on TripAdvisor, we walk in for late lunch and are seated immediately at the table of our choice. Crisp white linen all over and flowers on the tables make the place look...

Excellent food (salad, entree and dessert) and excellent service in a central DC location. Tosca has a pleasant ambience where it is actually possible to hold a conversation without shouting. This is an unusually good restaurant. A bit pricey but like my wife and me you will find it worthwhile. Go.

Tosca is a great restaurant in the Capital City! Reservations where very well taken care off. Very properly escorted to our table for 7 people that was very well situated. Orders were very confusing to the waiter for so many guests of different ages and food preferences; but they were superbly handled by our waiter, Djoko. His suggestions (which were... More

It is the beginning of morel season and to start we had them stuffed with foie gras---WOW and later stuffed with a soft cheese. Tosca is like the Italian restaurants in Italy. Something doesn't have to be on the menu for the kitchen to prepare it for you---Just ask. My wife had a wonderful simply grilled rock fish, something the... More

The attention on arrival was courteous and prompt. Even though it was late we had an unhurried. very pleasant dinner. Food was very well prepared and savory although I would have liked a little more on my plate. Wine and desserts were perfect. The service was truly excellent.

As one enters Tosca one is pleasantly surrounded by Waiters with white jackets, nice table's covered in white linens and presented with tasty food, but very small portions ( guess we should have ordered an appetizer ( but we are small eaters and at lunch time we tend to pass on appetizers) with that in mind I ordered the Roasted...

Marry outstanding food with a great wine list in a good location with old world professional service and you will have Tosca. We were a group of five and all of our food was five stars: burrata, lobster risotto, breast of duck, crusty bread, the delightful bread pudding (budino) and a fine Gaja Ca' Marcanda. Waiters in white jackets are... More
