I've dined twice before at Tosca as someone else's guest. I didn't realize how expensive this restaurant can be. Fortunately, I came during restaurant week where a 3-course meal was only $35. Since my 2 friends and I selected similar dishes, there wasn't much variety at the table. Among us we had 1/2 pastas for appetizers (gnocchi and braised short... More

We were visiting DC for a conference and couldn't find a table to have dinner anywhere for a group of 4 during Restaurant Week. While walking around we were trying almost every place with no luck but when we asked at Tosca they were really accomodating and must have had some other diners not show up. They were very happy...

We did the Chef's table for 6 for my parents 50th anniversary. Massimo and is crew took great care of us and gave a food family one of the best meals we have ever had. 7 courses plus desert over 3.5 hours. It was well paced and well prepared. Wine pairings we excellent as well. Thanks

This is always one of my favorite spots when I am in DC. I love the rabbit Ragu (although I preferred the carrot pasta that they used to serve), but this version is excellent. The veal chop is also something that I regularly order.

Tosca has been around for 15 years, and its longevity is a reflection of the quality of its food. Not an overabundance of choices here, but those that are available on a daily basis reflect the freshest of ingredients and extremely competent cooking. You get the feel that this is a business-oriented expense account establishment, but the advantage is that... More

How to describe near perfection. Our reservation was at 5:30, we were seated promptly and greeted warmly and professionally. We ordered the prosciutto board appetizer and it was excellent. Our son had spaghetti with Bolognaise sauce and he loved it. We had the New York strip with grilled Rosemary fingerling potatoes. This steak was one of the best I have... More

Almost strictly business clientele or so it seemed. Not the typical Italian restaurant as has very large selection of seafood choices simply grilled. Had the octopus which was highly recommended by waiter. Somewhat disappointing as was very rubbery and chewy. Maybe result of too big pieces. All appetizers were very good especially the sashimi style. Worth a visit
