stayed in hotel & not knowing the town we ate in the hotel. Waiter young & very nice but didnt really have much of a clue - 'do you guys want bread or something?'. I had pizza which was nice but the base was so thin that the mozzarella didnt have time to melt properly & ended up as rubbery... More

Before we were able to park, my employees/guests were questioned by management and told to move our service van for the convenience of other customers... NOT COOL... So we are at the all you can eat pasta station when Chris the executive chef comes out of the kitchen and reprimanded the person preparing our food for putting too much chicken... More

Less expensive than other options, but more than a fast food place. The atmosphere and service were terrific and the food was excellent!

We ear here for the lunch buffet about 4-6 times a year. The quality is getting worse over time but its the only place to find a soup and salad buffet at lunch. The servers are not friendly. The pasta bar was gone this past visit; instead they had pizza that could use flavor and a longer cook time. We... More

I had a lunch interview here recently and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and great service at this hotel restaurant. The only thing I would change is that there is really nothing on the menu that is "interview friendly". The last thing you want to do is to try to eat spaghetti and meatballs with manners while your prospective... More

First off, let me say I didnt eat dinner here. I did have a breakfast once and it was decent. The girl that waited on me was pleasant but in a bit of a snarky way. I couldn't tell if she was being nice or being "nice." No matter, that wasn't my biggest issue with it. The bar was nice... More

We went dinner time. It was old, low quality bad tasting horrible food. The artichokes were double fried and burnt. The ravioli had stuff on the bottom brown colored, god knows freezer burns or spoilt. Tasted non-fresh and yucky. The bruschetta was edible but not so good in taste. it is one of the easiest dishes that nothing can go... More

As noted by other reviewers, Toscana is in the Holiday Inn and near several other restaurants downtown. I had lunch with a friend on a Tuesday. Arriving about 11:30, there was no one else in the restaurant, and only 8 or 10 others were there during the next hour and a half. Nevertheless, Toscana is a pleasant place for lunch... More

We first came to this restaurant in September of 2012, while staying in the hotel in which this restaurant is located. We ate several different times over the course of a week and had a wonderful dining experience every time. We returned this weekend, again staying at the hotel and had dinner last night. There were four of us. I... More

Having enjoyed the buffet and the freshly prepared pasta in the past I was looking forward to it at lunch. The salad and mushroom soup were very good, like before. However, the cooked to order pasta had a major problem. Shrimp was added too late in the cooking process and turned out to be raw after sitting down to eat.... More
