This is a hidden gem we keep returning to the food is tasty and the prices are awesome. I usually order the chicken or shrimp Cappelini Pomodoro but thought I'd venture to try a dish with the chefs house sauce on it, great choice. I have since copied it and made my own rendition of it. We've never been disappointed... More

During a recent business trip to Franklin,Wis. decided to try La Toscana for dinner. We had the pizza special which was very good, and our waitress was fantastic. I will be sure to try this place again on my next visit to the area.

It's date night and my husband and I decided on La Toscana. We were seated immediately and our server was very knowledgable and answered my questions. I ordered Chicken Marsala and my husband had the Italian sausage dinner. Both were good but not great. You do get a lot of food for the money. The prices are very reasonable. I... More

We arrived early on a Saturday afternoon for supper, using our Entertainment book coupon. Because we were so early (barely after 4pm) we asked if they were serving and they were. At that point we had the restaurant to ourselves. We had an attentive waiter. The menu looked amazing with the many choices. We ordered Veal Carbonara and Shrimp Toscana.... More

Went to La Toscana for dinner tonight and we had delicious meals. Son ordered a veal pasta and daughter-in-law had shrimp pasta, I had shrimp Toscana and husband had ground round steak and we all thought our dishes were amazing! The waiter was very attentive and accommodating. They were having a two for $15 dinner special which is very reasonable.... More

Went here today with friends. All had different entree. We all were extremely pleased with our selections. Service was great. No one rushed us out when we were done eating. Would definitely go back here.

We have been coming to La Toscana's for about 7 years. It is our favorite restaurant. My husband has had just about everything on the menu. I have to watch the peppers. We love it! People are extremely friendly, going out of their way to help you. Small restaurant, but have always had fantastic service. Would highly recommend to anyone... More

Toscana was one of our favorite restaurants and I've recommended it to many many people. but lately it has been terrible. Late, totally wrong take out orders, with very rude girl on the phone who puts you on hold and doesn't reconnect. When eating in the restaurant, we waited 20 minutes for sodas and then the male waiter totally ignores... More

Hoping that it was a new cook in the kitchen tonight as the front of the house was all new faces tonight. Two out of three entrees were huge disappointments tonight and Lasagna was just O K. Caesar Salad was swimming in dressing and just arrived looking less than appealing. It was begrudging said to be O K and no... More

Received a BOGO coupon for La Toscana and definitely wanted to try it out after reading the reviews on here and other online sites. My first impression was that it looked like a little dive that certainly can't serve decent Italian food. I even said to my GF "should we go elsewhere" after having been burned a few months earlier... More
