Very good Italian at a decnt price

Hidden away in a mostly empty strip center, Toscana has very good food at very reasonable prices. Service is very attentive. Meals start with a basket of bread and pizza bread at your table. Portion sizes are big. They also have a kids menu. Beats the chain Italian restaurants by a mile...

My go-to Italian spot in Arlington Heights. Great service. Really good food and a great value! The location is somewhat obscure in a semi-vacant strip mall, but that hardly matters once inside. Large menu too. I recommend this spot for good food at a good price.

We usually come here every couple of months. The minestrone was better tonight than usual. One thing we can't stand is under seasoned soup and it was spot on tonight. Chicken cacciatore and the chicken limone were good as well. Give this place a try.

We've been going to Toscana for dinner for years, especially for veal dinners. However, the 2 times I've ordered veal, I'm not sure it really is veal - it almost tastes like ground chicken. Every veal dish is covered with a sauce, so that helps to mask the meat flavor. I'm all for paying extra for quality meat, but this... More

A small place with Italian entrees. The service is a bit slow, don't go if you are pressed for time , have had friendlier staff. All was forgiven once the food arrived! (Rated solely on food.)

Toscana is one of our favorite local restaurants. We often visit with family and friends to indulge in the wide variety of pasta choices and other Italian dishes. The atmosphere is friendly and the food is always good and we enjoy the complimentary pizza bread. Recently, one of our friends ordered the shrimp salad for lunch which looked very nice... More

Located in a small strip mall. Doesn't look like much from the outside. Had the steak sandwich and pasta salad for lunch. It was excellent! My friend had the caprese salad, which she said was very good.

This place is a bit hard to find and located in an unassuming strip mall. The outside of the building looks plain and simple but the inside is decorated very well and truly in Italian decor. The menu is diverse with daily specials and the food was fantastic! I went with a group of 5 others and no one was... More

The restaurant is located in a small plaza. Most of the seating is indoors, but they do have about 5 tables on the sidewalk as well. It's a medium-sized restaurants, so there is no place for kids to run around. There are Italian themed murals on the wall. The food is actually better than many upscale Italian restaurants. Everything is... More

This restaurant is in a sort of unappealing strip mall (with the Arlington Heights Senior Center), but the inside is lovely. There is a beautiful mural of an Italian scene that reminds me of the murals in Greektown depicting Greek scenes! I went for lunch for my birthday with a friend. There is a nice variety of options on the... More
