“wonderful italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

excellent food with little atmosphere. Bar conversation took over the small dining room. Would definitely go back for the food.

“Consistently Great Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

If you are looking for quality Italian, you should try Toscana's. We frequently order take out (once every 2 weeks) and you can't beat the quality for the price. The Eggplant Rollatini is the best around as is the Penne Alla Vodka. Every meal comes with a salad, and the dinner rolls are delicious. We occasionally eat at the restaurant but haven't been impressed by the service so we order in. The restaurant can get busy as well and can be kind of noisy. But we love the food so we keep going back!

“Fantastic Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We had a great meal at Toscana's this week. The service is always good and our meals (Eggplant Rollatini & Shrimp Fra Diavolo were fantastic as usual. Add in a great bottle of wine(14 Hands) and a Bruins playoff game and you can't miss.

“A Lot of Hype for an Average Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

My friends and I ate at Toscana's at the recommendation of someone at our hotel who steered us there instead of Bertucci's. In the end, there was nothing at all impressive about this restaurant.

The service was glacial, and the steak that I ordered medium rare was served medium well. The wine list was disappointing, and the server confused all of our tickets.

There are too many other good places to eat in Peabody to waste time here.

“tutti de mare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

my favorite restaurant just continues to get better, went there on my birthday and we all thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. appetizers included calamari in a red sauce, mozzarel and tomatoes and crab cakes which were incredible, seriously have to be the best i have ever eaten. our server was Tricia and she was Fabulous and Fun. main course for me the tutti de mare- 1/2 a lobster, mussels, clams, scollops, fish in a light red sauce over a perfectly cooked bed of linguini. i'm telling you this dish was exquisite it was so good it brought tears to my eyes. if i could change anything it would be the wine list, but other than that i give them five out of five stars.
