“Vinny is "the Man"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I am a consistant user of Tripadvisor. We visited Toscana Italian Bistro on March 1 based on the reviews and they were absolutely dead on. This small hidden secret is one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever experienced. I promise that you will have to be in in New York or Italy to find equally authentic Italian dishes. Vinny, the owner and chef, made sure that our dishes were prepared to perfection and he succeeded at every level. Appetizers, soups, salads and entrees were absolutely "WOW". The bread....Oh my god!! The lemon cello cake and cannoli's to top off the meal were perfect. I am an avid food lover and home chef. Italian is my favorite and you will give yourself a huge treat by visiting Toscana Italian Bistro. You will be planning what to order your next visit before you walk out the door. Hey Vinny, I hope to meet your mom our next visit when she returns from Italy. Thank you my new friend for a great dining experience and thanks to Asia for her great service.

“Amazing Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

I discovered Toscana Italian Bistro 2 years ago in one of my trips to Myrtle Beach. The decor is modern, the atmosphere serene and the staff professional and warm at the same time. The food so delicious, I was pleasantly surprised. I am really picky when it comes to Italian cousine, especially the pasta. It's really hard to find restaurants that know how to properly cook pasta. This is not the case at the Toscana Bistro. The pasta is perfectly cooked - al dente. The various sauces are done to perfection and the salt is to taste. Food quality didn't change if they cooked for two of for a party of 18. I highly recommandTsocana Italian Bistro for a great experience of Italian food. Deeply impressed and have returned every time I visit Myrtle Beach.

“Excellent Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

We looked thru the ratings before coming to Myrtle Beach and couldn't get into the #1 restaurant on here so went to #2 but this place was great. The decor and presentation of the food was great. The food was terrific too the best Italian restaurant I've eaten at while travelling. The place is sorta hidden too and if not for reviewing it here first we probably would have driven right by it. It truly is a hidden jem and recommended. The staff was very friendly and helpful too. I would recommend not siting near the entrance if the weather is cold out thou, you get a breeze when the door opens.

I decided to take my wife here after seeing the high reviews on here. Our meal was nothing short of amazing & they were so sweet to our kids! I've already picked out what I want to order our next trip to town!

“BEST ITALIAN I'VE EVER HAD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

We stopped here on our last night in Myrtle Beach. It was ridiculously good! The credit card machine was down at the time & the owner was extremely apologetic. She even gave us a cannoli on the house (which was to die for!) She didn't even mind when I had to breastfeed my baby while my husband went to the atm. I can't wait to go back the next time we are in town!!
