“A real Italian treasure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Staying overnight with my family, we were looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled upon Tuscany. It seemed fairly quiet, which was what we wanted, so we went in. Immediately we were welcomed by the lovely Angelo who seated us, got us drinks and served us with complimentary bruschetta.
While we waited for our food, Angelo entertained our children (ages 9 and 10) talking and performing tricks for them. The food was delicious and the whole time we were there we felt very welcomed and at home. We would definitely eat here again.
Thank you Angelo for a lovely evening!

“Good food but be patient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

We ate here a couple of weeks ago, a table of ten. The food was fab, and we were looked after well by everyone, just waited longer than expected for our main course but it wouldn't put any of us off going again or recommending the place.

“very nice meal but was overcharged!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

The Tuscany was just a little way from our hotel where we were staying overnight and despite having no customers I in(tues night) thought we d give it a try! The owner Angelo was very pleasant and charming,bringing a heater over as quite a chilly night and we were given complimentary very tasty bruschetta while we looked at the menu which we thought was a nice gesture. I chose sword fish which was on the specials and my husband had fillet steak ,both dishes were delicious served with vegetables along with a good house rose wine. Then we finished off with tia maria coffee and irish coffee I noticed Angelo taking the spirits from the bar in two glasses which I thought was good as you see the correct measures being used. Over coffee we had chat with Angelo whom was telling us about his acquaintance with Dickie Bird whom often pops in when in town and showing us a postcard he d received from him thanking him for his hospitality. So all in all we really enjoyed our visit until we looked at our bill later and realised we cheekily were charged an extra £2.50 twice on the bill which I can only assume being charged for the complimentary bruschetta! For this reason we wont return!!!

“Saltier than a seadog”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Over priced dreadful food. Microwaved lasagne that was hotter than Magma and main courses ruined by sauces so salty I could still taste the salt the following morning.

The front of house never asked what we thought of our meals. Not seen that in years. One can only assume that he knows how poor the food is.

Avoid like the plague unless you have a medically diagnosed sodium deficiency,

“disappointing meal”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

We should have heeded other remarks on Trip Advisor....The food lacked flavour and seasoning.The Avocado was unripe in the Prawn and Avocado starter.The Pizza bases were soggy and the vegetables served with one of the main courses were that hard it was as if they had not seen boiling water or a steamer. The wine we ordered came to the table already opened.When we complained to the waiter all he could do was to shrug his shoulders, no apology was forthcoming. We paid the bill but for the first time ever we did not leave a tip.We will never eat again in this restaurant.The friends we were with feel exactly the same...
