Seeing as this is the highest rated restaurant in Wilkes-Barre, we figured we would give it a shot. The food was run-of-the-mill Italian. Good, but nothing special. The service however, was the worst service I've ever had at a restaurant. We were seated and then waited 30 minutes for the waiter to give us water and take our order, he... More

Cafe Toscana at 1 Public Square in Wilkes-Barre is one of the best restaurants around. It sits across the square from the Kirby Theater, 3 short blocks from a 14 screen movie house and real nice shops. However, the food is what we go for, the rest is gravy. The fare is fine dining Italian style. The wait staff is... More

This was the first time visiting this restaurant in Wilkes Barre. Just picked it on a whim. Service was great as was the selection and quality of the Italian cuisine. This stop was a lunch stop and I can highly recommend it.

Outstanding restaurant in Wilkes Barre, Pa. Bruschetta is the best around, served with complimentary olive spread and freshly baked bread. Recommend the fried calamari and any of the veal dishes. Fine decor...service is excellent. You feel welcomed by the staff and are not rushed through dinner. Parking can be a challenge, suggest parking in nearby garages as on-street can be... More

Bruschetta complimentary along with an exceptional olive spread for the bread. I had veal marsala with mashed potatoes and broccoli. My wife had veal sorrentino and same sides. Oh,... More

Not being from the area my husband and I were cautiously optimistic that the food would be passable Italian fare. What a pleasant surprise! This restaurant is absolutely fantastic! The service was wonderful and friendly, but not oppressively attentive. The meals were delicious and the dessert was over-the-top. There was nothing that could be faulted - just perfect!

Ambiance was perfect from the music to the decor. The service was great, timing of the staff check on how thing are to providing time as not to feel rushed was nice. And the food .. Salads are very fresh ingredients with attention to presentation that carried on through the entrees into the desserts. Really was amazed on how good... More
