We live nearby but rarely go here. We went recently for a friend's party and our prior opinion was confirmed: Food was just standard Italian...nothing to write home about.

I just reviewed cafe Milano in la jolla. This meal was so disappointing after that one! The cost alone is almost double what I paid for. The food was bland and uninspiring. Got the chicken parm and my wife got some penne with something. Let's put it this was the best part of the meal was the waiter and the... More

Well, we just go back from Tuscany (Florence, Italy) and had to head to our favorite Italian restaurant in our (lucky us) neighborhood - Tuscany. It never disappoints us and while it wasn't the cute little places (see reviews) we dropped in on in Florence, the food is authentic and well prepared. Actually I like this restaurant's pizza better than... More

The service is so European, I forgot I was in CA! Wonderful dishes---anything is good and that's saying a lot... Live music some nights so call ahead if you don't like that.

Been here twice and it's just is not working for us at all. This last time, it took 20 minutes to get any attention from the wait staff, and another 15 minutes to get drink orders we made (ie, wine and water) filled and food orders taken. In the meantime, Signore Lothario seemed to have plenty of time to attend... More

Oh YUMMY! Great Service! Welcome greeting at the Door! Flat screens too. The menu had a variety of delish Happy Hour dishes! I will definitely return.

It sure seems that there is at least one Italian restaurant in San Diego per capita. While I know that's not true, there are plenty in the area. Some of them are ok, but once in a while one finds a restaurant that has a special aura about it. That's Tuscany! I've always felt that Italians have a special talent:... More

When we first moved to Carlsbad, and were packing boxes, we decided to get takeout from here....BIG mistake. I've never had shrimp scampi where the shrimp were dipped in egg batter first - talk about nasty. The veal piccata was so ordinary and bland, we've never been back. I see the place does get packed - I can only think... More

Bought a coupon for Jazz Brunch from Travelzoo and had some trouble getting a reservation early in day. Took two weeks and when I arrived they told me my reservation was "first come first serve" which concerned me, but I got a high table with my daughter and it was fine. I was concerned that they kept going over rules... More
