“Good happy hour and friend staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The happy hour is very good for the prices and the appetizer selection. The bar area is nice until 5:30 when it gets busy and crowded. But you can find room for your friend or small group.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Sometimes I forget to go off the Main St. when I go out- No more. Met friends at Tuscany this week and thought it was perfect. Drink menu is amazing and if you can't find a dish on their menu that sounds good you just aren't hungry. Tuscany's has something for eveybody.

“Really interesting drink menu and great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Met a few girlfriends here for a girls night out. The bartender was very friendly and helpful. She walked us through the drink menu which has some very interesting martinis. I ended up with a fig martini which was amazing, and one of my friends tried a martini with gingersnap cookie crumbs on the rim. She liked it so much, she had two of them! We just snacked a little on appetizers - a bruschetta with sliced steak on it, mussels in a spicy cream sauce, and some portabella mushrooms stuffed with spinach and gorgonzola cheese. All were very good and I'll definitely be going back to Tuscany with my husband for dinner very soon!

“Not awful, but nothing great either”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

I have never really understood the popularity of this place. The architecture is odd and interesting but the food is generally just mediocre or perhaps very occasionally just a notch above average. Over the years the staff has wavered between utterly pretentious and mostly indifferent, with a few nice exceptions thrown into the mix. There is just nothing here to be pretentious about. The cooking isn't creatively inspired but it's not terrible either. There are so many other interesting restaurants in Middletown and around the state.

“Poor service & worse food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Their menu is is outdated and poor executed. The staff was young and unprofessional, no management presence, and the place is just run down. Had to send back my pasta twice for it to be cook properly and hot. No one came by to apologize. The place needs a lot of help if it going to stay in business.
