Dined at Cafe Toscano this afternoon for the first time and was delighted with the food, atmosphere and the service. I would definitely go there again. Tables set beautifully with linens, very clean and nicely decorated. Loved it!!!!

We are staying in Lake Harmony and were looking for some good Italian food so we decided to drive a small distance and try this place. So glad we did! Our food was wonderful and the staff was very attentive, someone was always there to refill my water. The best part was how accommodating they were. We wanted to try... More

I have dined here many times and I have never had anything short of a great meal. The staff is so friendly and the wine choices are also excellent. They also have a prix fix menu that is extremely worth it. Enjoy!

I go to Wilkes Barre fairly regularly and make sure I stop here for dinner when I can. Very fresh salads and some dishes are outstanding like the angel hair with mushrooms. Wine selection is great. Remember in context of being in a poor city, this place is fabulous.

A wonderful, real Italian restaurant not dumbed down and Americanized. On the square in downtown Wilkes-Barre. My wife and I enjoyed a romantic time with a delicious meal. We both wisely selected the “Prix Fix” option- which is a four course meal for $30 a person. I felt that was a little high, but by skipping the wine- it stayed... More

Good food and nice portions. We arrived about 5:30, and the place was packed by 6:00. Service was excellent and the servers were knowledge about a variety of wines. I will eat here again on the 4th of July! Did I mention the pricing is reasonable. Don't know much about Wilkes-Barre, but this place is a hit!

We arrived about 8 and there only 3 or 4 tables occupied. We ordered the calamari fritto which arrived quickly. However the calamari had the texture and taste of rubber bands, accompanied by a tasteless sauce. My penne pesto with shrimp had no hint of basil or garlic in the pesto which was a mess of added cream. The shrimp... More

We opened the door and were almost in an airplane hangar, with seating groups here and there and bars here and there--this is a facility that can handle a huge crowd and it would not feel crowded. It was, in fact, not busy at all. Dinner is advertised as Italian, but you can have any of your favorites. We shared... More

Great ambiance and food ... I particularly enjoyed the bruschetta that is brought out along with the Italian bread. The frutti de mare was delicious with a decent amount of seafood. Service was attentive and old school (a good thing).
