“Best Lobster risotto ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

I had my birthday dinner with my boyfriend at Toscano and we were very surprised. I wanted a lobster risotto, which they have as a side plate for the whole lobster main course but not as a main course itself, and they did it for me when I asked. The portion was huge, and there were real pieces of lobster, making the taste wonderful and soft. The rice was perfectly cooked, and the texture was amazing. My boyfriend had a pizza, which was also crusty and delicious. Great variety of wines.
Great price-quality. I would definitely recommend it and I will keep going.

“Great spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Had a wonderful meal. Hardest thing was deciding which of the many gems on the menu to have. There were 7 of us and the waiters were great as two in the party were quite late. The meal was fantastic but there was quite a but if time between courses. We were having fun so it didn't matter but if I had somewhere to be it would have been upsetting.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

As Figs had a 45 minute wait time, we ended up at Toscano. The service was professional, quick and swift. While we entered the main dining room it had an odor that was not very pleasant. I was quite hesitant at that point. As my nose adjusted in time for the food came out, my taste buds took over and they were very pleased with the food being served. The portions were generous and all three of us left very pleased.

“Rude service - do not Go!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

I was in vacation with my family and we went to this restaurant. Since the time we arrive at the restaurant, the waiter behaviour was really rude! I went to several good restaurants in the area, this was simply the worst service, i do not recommend to spent any time there
