Nice place to meet for lunch or dinner, cozy atmosphere, good service. Pasta was cooked just right, veal & chicken dishes were well prepared & tasty. One of my favorite places to meet a friend.

The place was a little busy but they sat us in what looked like a new section in the back of the place. Two problems, they use the florescent blue lights which is not condusive to restaurants and...

Antipasto - very good; bread - the best anywhere; soup - good,; manicotti - good; prices - very good. Went for lunch on a Sunday. We had not been there in quite a while and found good food and excellent service. Is it the best Italian food I have ever had, no, but it is good. Only complaint was I... More

This is my favorite Italian restaurant. My husband and I go there every so often and every time, we are not disappointed. On this visit my husband had ordered their salmon and said it was the best he ever had. Their menu has so much to choose from and they do have specials written on a board at the back... More

Had dinner two nights in a row at Toscana. The first night was awesome, we had the Scallops Caruso and lamb shank. Both meals were fabulous. The bread was warm and yummy!!!! The salad was just basic, however the garlic dressing was amazing. One of the best meals I have ever experienced. The next night's dinner was as awful as... More

My wife and I found this place by accident. The name is Italian but being of Sicilian descent I am very critical of Italian restaurants. We enter and see olive oil on the table, always a good sign. Immediately, a bread basket appears; some hard crust bread and thick Sicilian bread with a smear of tomato and tomato sauce. Just... More

We've been going here with friends for years. The food is always fantastic with a "large enough" menu plus many specials to choose from. The prices are very reasonable and the service is impecable. Immediately walking in, the bar is on one side and the restaurant tables in front of you. It gives the feeling of being cramped, but they... More

I ate dinner with a friend on a Tuesday night. We were seated immediately - water and a bread basket arrived not long after - the focaccia bread was very good. I ordered the lamb shank special while my friend had the eggplant parmigiana. My lamb came with good roasted potatoes and a great veggie assortment - the only negative... More

We discovered Toscana about a year ago and now dine there about once a month. It's not the absolute best Italian food I've ever had but it's very good and reasonably priced. Sunday night our party of six had the Chicken Marsala, baked lasagna, chicken Parmesan, and chicken limone. Everyone was very happy with their dinners. Portions are generous and... More

My husband and extended family have eaten at Toscana many times with mixed results over the years. But tonight was an all time low. I don't think we'll return any time soon. II ordered Tilapia and was served a very small piece of fish covered with soupy spinach. My husband ordered pasta with a Bolognese sauce. It was salty, more... More
