We visited here on a Monday evening and had a wonderful experience. The bread and bruschetta provided were extraordinary. Other restaurants should definitely take a page from their playbook. The calamari was fresh and light. We enjoyed the Chicken Verona and the penne with vodka sauce. We also enjoyed the cannoli and crime brulee for dessert. Service was good as... More

Excellent fine dining Italian food. All their dishes are wonderful. I especially enjoy their fish entrees. Service is professional, attentive, and unintrusive.

The food was in general okay, some food tasted off. Water was filled up once and after never refilled. The place looks elegant, but the food and service is not. The only part of the meal we enjoyed was dessert and the wine.

Fine dining and great service. Lovely dining room with really attentive waiters. Nice and quiet so you can have conversation with your dining companions.

Small but elegant. Quite. Great food. Walking distance to the Kirby for an event. One of the better options for downtown Wilkes Barre.

What a perfect restaurant! Wonderful ambience, great service, and the food is outstanding. The bruschetta and dipping oil with bread to start your meal is to die for! And the entrées are fabulous -- love the salmon! If you have never been to Toscana, you must go!

OK, it's not up to Manhattan's top restaurants, but if you want polished service by attentative waiters in a reasonably priced restaurant, spend an evening at Cafe Toscana. My wife and I went there for diner one weekday evening. We were seated promptly, given our menus along with a complimentary bruschetta appetizer. Both of us ordered the 4 course pre-fixe... More

The service in this restaurant leaves much to be desired. The waiters were not attentive, example - Ice Tea, water was never refilled.The presentation of the food was very good. The Insalata della Casa is Excellent as well as the Bread. The Vitello Saltimbocca was Terrible! I wanted it to Jump Out of my Mouth rather than Jump In my... More

We came in town passing through and liked the look & smell of this restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised to have both home baked bread, but also free bruschetta, which was tasty. We both chose the very reasonably priced prix fixe meal, which offered appetizer, soup, entree, dessert, and coffee. My partner enjoyed the calamari, while I enjoyed mussels in... More
