“Good specialty Italian cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We were a party of 5. Ordered a panini, a couple of pizzas and a fettuccine Alfredo. The fettuccine left a lot to be desired, but the seafood pizza more than made up for it.
The specialty drinks were also quite nice.
The prices were steep though even counting the brilliant chic laid back ambiance of the place.

“Interesting Italian restaurant hybrid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We have eaten here twice and while I enjoy the food, I find the menu selections bizarre. Its not really Italian in that while pizzas and pastas feature on the menu, as they also have stuff like fish and chips. In any case, the restaurant has good ambiance and it is a good addition to the Islamabad restaurant scene. Seems to be popular with the locals. The ambiance is unique; it attempts to emulate an Italian style piazza. Live music was playing when we last visited, a nice plus.

“Lovely ambience, great food!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Went to Tuscany Courtyard with family for a celebratory dinner. Everyone from the youngest 3 year old to the eldest 73 year old enjoyed their meal, atmosphere and service.

Steaks were excellent as were the pizzas and panninis.

Looking forward to returning there soon!!!

“good thin crust pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

I would suggest one try the gardeners' pizza...a nice mixture of vegetables with a bit of a kick. Others are very fond of the chicken tikka pizza.

“Good thin-crust pizza, the rest is uneven”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The patio is nice downstairs but if you wish to bring wine, they'll put you upstairs which has no charm and too much light in the evening. I like their thin-crust pizza (very thin); they are expensive by Pakistani standard: 600 to 700. Ilike the frutti della terra (vegetarian) or the smoked salmon, you can also do your own as you wish. I The rest of the food is uneven, some good, some very average. We were a group of 10 so we were able to sample several items. Entrees are 800 to 900. It is very crowded on Fridays and Saturdays, so either book or come early.
They add taxes at the end so you pay more than what you saw on the menu (rare in this city) and they don't deliver pizza even next door which is annoying.
