"Home Made" just like Mama did it!

We tried the Tuscany for lunch and based on other trip advisor ratings and were Not disappointed. We had Eggplant Rollatine appetizer and it was just GREAT! My wife had the Ravioli Marsalla and Shrimp lunch special and the shrimp were just great. The ravioli was a little too al dente' for me. I... read more

Manager was rude, and refused to give us her name. I left a message for owner to contact me about the poor service. The owner never called. Food was okay, but, as a fine dining experience you would be better off ordering a pizza from 7-11! What a bust this dining experience was for my family!! I did file a... More

The atmosphere is family friendly. There are table cloths and cloth napkins but this place is not too uptight to accept well-behaved children. The food was plentiful and wonderful! We have some food allergies and the staff and chef were VERY careful to prepare the food to suit our needs. Most sauces and dishes are made-to-order so they were able... More

Very authentic little restaurant tucked away in strip mall. Staff was very pleasant and our waitress wasnt too over zealous (which I hate). Those are the main reasons for the 3 rating. I asked for a Pellegrino for my drink, but they don't offer that. Hello !? This IS an Italian restaurant correct ? My wife and I tried the... More

Review written by my wife. After doing some research online for an Italian Restaurant and reading the reviews on Tuscany Ristorante Italiano, my mother and I decided to give it a try. We were greeted by the hostess and sat in the main dining room. We started with the mussel appetizer, Cozzes Posillico, which was very good. I could have... More

Hadn't visited Tuscany in a while and my friend wanted to go there for lunch. I'm big on "second chances" so I agreed. This time the service was very good. Atmosphere was OK. Food was average. (I had pepperoni pizza-mediocre at best. Sauce didn't taste fresh, cheese was skimpy.) My friend had a special of the day: chicken breast with... More

The staff at our hotel recommended the Tuscany and boy did they point us in the right direction. Fantastic services and outstanding food. We'll be sure to dine/visit here again!

After much deliberation we chose Tuscany for my birthday celebration and I am SO glad we did!!! Food was absolutely delicious, staff was very welcoming and accommodating, and they even brought me a complimentary birthday cannoli for dessert! Great experience and can't wait to take my friends & family back!

Delicious! Yes, I had the veal parmigian and it was very good... Excellent in other words. Staff was very friendly. Atmosphere was quiet and comfortable. Prices are reasonable for the quality and amount of food. Would visit again!

Take your money somewhere else, anywhere else but here. Server was very unattentive, & preoccupied, had to ask 3 different times for straws! I ordered the veal parm and it was soggy, not fully cooked, no crunch at all to it!! GROSS. I asked for the tiramisu & it was slopped appearing all messy in a little cup. I took... More
