I have been here several times and have never been disappointed. The food is great (do the party menu if in a large group), the sangrias are pretty potent and the atmosphere is very chilled. Been here for birthdays, law school meetings, farewell parties and each time - it's been amazing. The paella is to die for!

We had a Fun time for my birthday with my family. Everyone was willing to try new dishes. Everything was delicious. We ordered the tapas for a party and Pallas and salads. Great chiros and birthday cake for dessert.

I've been to La Tosca a few times over the years, and I just do not like this place. Mediocre Italian food that they think they can overcharge for because they're in Chinatown. The most recent time, I met my friends out for a drink. It's basically only tourists in this restaurant. La Tosca goes for the whole Italian vibe,... More

The food was delicious but in order to be satisfied, you need to order at least 3 selections. Food is pricey for the amount served. Service was good. Personnel were friendly and very helpful in describing the food.

If you love Sangria, La Tasca offers many choices, including seasonal specials. Super deals during happy hour!, which is why the bar is packed. We ordered a pitcher of Sangria from the bar (at happy hour prices) then enjoyed it at the table with our meal. Love ordering and sharing small plate tapas. Seafood paella was wonderful.

Had an amazing experience at La Tasca while walking around China Town. We were seated promptly, and right by the window. The decor was very comfortable and upbeat. The server was outstanding in his descriptions of everything, and perfect timing. The food was incredible. We did not stop here for a meal - rather, it was an alternate to going... More

Many many choices and all of them were tasty. Be prepared, the place is noisy, but you'll have a fun and delightful meal. A bit pricey but still worth going

I was in town with a group of five students for a high school journalism convention. After a long day of touring the city, we ended up at La Tasca at around 6:30 on a Saturday night. We had reservations to eat there for lunch the next day, but we decided to try it for dinner instead because the other... More
