“A hidden gem tucked away in Valencia, CA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

This restaurant is located in a non-descript part of valencia within a small shopping center tucked in between a municipal golf course and apartment complexes. It is easily missed but glad we took the time to find it. The exterior decor is benign and appears more like a bar than a restaurant with its neon beer signs peppering the storefront. Once you get beyond that, the interior is quaint and cozy. The waiter and possibly owner, i'm not sure, greeted us in a faded t-shirt. The food is really the draw for this place. We had the caprese, tequila chicken pasta, seafood pasta with mussels and clams, and the pear and gorganzola cheese ravioli. All the food was good to excellent. We complimented the affair with a $22 bottle of cabernet, which was better than the price would indicate and finished with a shared desert. We were the only customers at that time as we decided on a early dinner. But it became obvious that this was the place for locals and regulars when customers started to arrive greeting the owner with more than a glancing hello.

In short: good to great food, reasonably priced. not the place for a first date but great place for regular visits

“Trying is not Good Enough”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2011

I have eaten here 3 times in past month. I have tried to like it, but the food is so chain-like and bland that I cannot. SCV Valley is full of chain places pushing huge portions, so any alternative should be better, but Toscana is not. Best exmaple of this place is that they seem to have a loyal happy hour crowd that comes, drinks and then goes elsewhere to eat.

“Perfect, lovely Italian evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2011

Perfect place for a Friday evening with friends. Great food, service and even live music on the weekend. I love places that aren't a regular "chain" restaurant and this is definitely a place we'll frequent. Can't wait to go back.

“Nice find....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2011

First of all, they deliver, which is a nice feature for a nice local restaurant which is not a chain nor a fast food type place. The owners are very nice and the food (pizza included) is very well done. We love their vodka penne and pizza. Even the garlic knots are great as well as their tira misu. We probably eat here about 2-3 tmrw a month and have never been disappointed.
