Good brunch deal if you can get it

We enjoyed a nice Sunday brunch here with a travel zoo deal. Mixed feelings about whether we would go back otherwise for a full price meal. The discounted coupon makes this a decent brunch spot. Our omelets were good, but the bottomless Mimosa deal was even better. The server was friendly and... read more

A very pleasant place for brunch! Not very crowded, nice ambience, and good food. The jazz musician was very good! We used a travelzoo certificate, which saved 50%.

Attended a large birthday party held in the back room. The staff was very friendly and prompt meeting everyone's needs. The 3 course options were all very good, food came out hot and fresh, often hard to do for a large party. There was a band and a dance floor which was perfect for the evening. Overall everything from start... More

The new ownership has really cheapened the quality of the menu items. The portions are considerably smaller and the taste is less than acceptable for the price they charge. The last two times I visited I had MSG allergic attacks. Not saying that they use MSG but I had allergic reactions the last two times I went there. The mixed... More

We went to Tuscany Ristorante for the Jazz Brunch. We had reservations for 1:30pm, but it really wasn't too crowded at that time. The ambiance is very modern, not old style Italian, but nicely laid out and comfortable. The waiters are all Italian and were very efficient and pleasant. They all looked elegant in black pants, black button down shirts... More

Tuscany Ristorante has been located in The Vons Shopping at the corner of El Camino Real and Aviara Parkway for many years. The menu has many interesting pasta and fish entrees as well as pizza and salads. They have live music in the bar. We enjoyed the veal parmigiana and the swordfish special on our recent visit. They have a... More

This is near our home and it's a great place for locals to pop in to. We love the eggplant stack and caesar salad. They often have live music and TVs for sports lovers.

It remains In a time warp. If you are a happy hour person it's your nirvana. It's an "experienced" crowd, very familiar with happy hour prices and small bites. It's improved a bit over the last couple years, but essentially it's mediocre good that's Italian. Although they do have a good meatball and pomodoro sauce. But just good not great.... More

I used to love going to Tuscanys to see Howie and Pino. But unfortunately Tuscany's was sold to a man who is rude to his regular patrons. I have had so many people tell me he is rude and disrespectable. So we are hoping and praying he sells the business and become a prison guard or IRS accountant where he... More

The owner/manager of this establishment is the rudest most condescending individual we have ever met. We were told we could not eat there without a reservation because we had a Groupon and didn't call in advance. Although, they accepted walk-ins standing right in front of us without reservations. I have no idea how this owner/manager is still doing business given... More
