A quick business lunch in Therwil and Cantina Toscana served us a nice lunch in a friendly traditional atmosphere! Tasty food, no modern stash, nor style, but good traditional food. Roast cut potatoes and nice beef in a nice brown sauce. Nothing to complain about, nothing to brag about either.

I had the worst experience at this restaurant. I ordered the menu 2 which includes beverage (vine and water), a starter and the main meal. I asked the waiter (and owner) to skip the starter and bring us water without gas. The food was good and the waitresses tried to give us the best service they could, however they haven't... More

We eat here regularly with the family. Real Italian kitchen owned by Italian family and a lot of ditto guests. Good antipasti and main courses. All fresh and simple, honest taste. Ambiente and service also simple but pleasant. And the price.....once you're used to Swiss prices, OK.

We were here on a Friday evening and the place was full. There were only two waiters and the service was slow and surly because they were visibly frazzled. We had the grilled vegetable platter that came with burnt bruschetta and the steak florentine which was underdone - even for us who like our meat rare. I've eaten here several... More

I was told this is one of the best Italian restaurants in Basel Land and according to Trip Advisor it could be one of the best, but it is not. If you compare the prices with the dishes you get and how they are presented, you should request a reasoning from each contributor who says this restaurant is one of... More

Fantastic Italian food - even my ultra fussy foodie husband from Italy agrees! The truffle ravioli are to die for! I recommend the menu - great quality price ratio (for Switzerland) Service is very friendly and pretty much all are / speak Italian

As Italian I have often been disappointed with Italian food outside of Italy. This restaurant really surprised me. The atmosphere is authentically Italian and the food remarkably so, with excellent ingredients. Service is very good and they really want to ensure that their guests are enjoying their evening there. I have been there few times now and never been disapppinted.
