Excellent Tuscan food

We love the Capellini D'Angello al Fruti Di Mare - excellent mingling of flavors and a pretty presentation.

Nice setting for a quiet evening with attentive staff and a wide choice of items. Food was good but not memorable.

When we first walked into the restaurant we thought it was empty, but when they took us to a table they actually took us through the first room and into a back room that was packed full of people. So we dined super close to other customers which i found to be an uncomfortable set-up. The food was good and... More

The food and the service are excellent. Staff is professional. They are efficient and friendly but do not overwhelm guests with conversation. There is a true understanding, it seems, that guests come there to enjoy each other and the exceptional food. The menu choices are authentic, far from Olive Garden fare. The experience you will have here is special. The... More

Great service and great food what more could you ask for, how about great prices. Compared to similar restaurants offering some of the same items their prices cannot be beat. Salute!

With excellent service and delectable homemade pasta, this little gem in downtown Wilkes-Barre is worth the trek into town! Only a short drive from the traveler's hotels near I-81, you won't regret passing up the fast food and chain restaurants and taking the time to enjoy an authentic Italian meal in the public square. Try the stracciatella soup for a... More

Great food, good service, just do not go on a night when there is an event at the FM Kirby Center - the restaurant is overwhelmed. The pastas are home made. The scallops are exceptional - equivalent to what you would get on the Pacific coast.

From the freshly made bruschetta appetizer through the luscious tiramisu, we enjoyed deliciously prepared and attractively plated authentic Italian cuisine. My favorite is the chicken Marsala, and my husband's is the seafood pasta. This is our go-to place when entertaining friends and family while visiting W-B. The decor features muted tapestries and fresco painting of soothing Italian scenes. The frosted... More

My wife and I recently tried Cafe Toscana for the first time a few weeks ago, after seeing the rating on TripAdvisor, and looking for a new place to eat in the area. All I can say is, "wow". Walking in, you get a little bit of a "fancy restaurant" feeling, between the setting and the service. Our waiter was... More
