There is a 3 course price fix menu that is a marvelous value. You may pick an appetizer, entree, and desert for like$30 something. The atmosphere is charming.

I've been to Toscana three times since 2014, thanks to my cousin. I hesitate to review restaurants on one visit and this third time demanded a review. One: the food is outstanding. The quality, quantity and variety is unmatched. Two: the wine list has something for everyone, even spoiled Californians (us). Three: The wait staff is extremely attentive and accommodating....

We've tried almost everything on the menu including the specials. They make a great martini and the wine list is good too. The only thing we've never tried is the desert because we never have room!

My first time here and I was thoroughly impressed. Very good food, excellent wait staff and and quick turn around time. Comparable to feel of Thai Thai on the square, just italian. I certainly was not disappointed. I would highly recommend the grilled calamari salad as an app!

I have eaten here before concerts of the Northeast Philharmonic Orchestra, which is a walk across the Square. Park and you're set for the evening. Their menu consists of regular meals and nightly features. Besides very good food, they make sure you finish in time to get to the concert or evening's entertainment.

As this is a fairly popular local restaurant we were lucky to get a table as walk-ins. The service was a bit slow and unprofessional: we had to ask for bread plates and the server used my spoon to sprinkle grated cheese on our food then plopped it back down next to my knife. The food was ok - you... More

We recently tried Cafe Toscano for a dinner with friends and were very pleasantly surprised.

We have already visited a second time and will be back again. Thanks to some other... More
