We have now been to Toscana twice over the past month and both experiences were praise-worthy. The food was very good...from the Italian wedge to the Veal Marsala. And the chocolate mousse was extraordinary. The ambiance is charming and intimate. The first time we ate...inside...small-ish but comfortable. The second we ate outside. The outside felt comfortable...not a makeshift set up as with some restaurants. I can certainly recommend both inside and outside for dining experiences. And shoutouts to our servers. Sophie on the first visit and Drake on the second. Both were top-notch in terms of service and very personable.More

The boscaiola and saltimbocca were excellent! Homemade pasta with each dish was superb! Mini cannoli was excellent choice for dessert and wine selection was top of the line. This is a fabulous restaurant dining outside or enjoying your meal choice inside. Servers were professional, friendly...and made you feel welcomed. Thank you all for making this such an enjoyable evening!More

Great meal in a nice spot. The scallop risotto was delicious and the portion was huge. Took half home for another dinner! Seating during pandemic was good: they had igloos set up outside!

My husband and I had dinner with my adult son here. We all Had different entrees and were all top notch. Quality and quantity which rarely happens. We had the calamari appetizer and it was the best we ever had. After dinner we were told...that we were the last customers as they were closing tomorrow due to the Coronavirus . Glad we able to have that last night, and wish all of the servers , cooks & hosts the best off luck through this mess. Excellent restaurant- delicious food and warm cozy setting. Def going back when in the area. LaurieMore

Amazing food. I had been here once before but couldn’t remember the name and it was driving me crazy because they had the best arranchini ever. I finally remembered the name and it lived up to my expectations i had from my previous visit. The...arranchini is a must have. The gnocchi and the vodka sauce pasta is delicious. Flourless Chocolate torte was a cherry on top. So delicious! Would go back in a heartbeat.More

Toscana Bar Italiano should be on anybody's short list for fine dining. The restaurant is somewhat small so make reservations. Sitting at the bar is a great experience. Mike the bartender is tops with cocktails and guaranteeing that you will have a memorable evening. The...food is Italian but not your basic fare. Sal the chef is one of the most creative people in the kitchen ever. For very fine dining, from appetizers to desserts, cocktails and wines you should try Toscana!More

From the atmosphere to the last bite, all was wonderful! Greetings at the front door were inviting as was our server and their knowledge of the menu. Warm olive appetizer is a must to try.

This was our first time dining here and all in our group were pleasantly surprised. To start we ordered the antipasto, a wedge salad and a kale Caesar. The portions were huge and the quality was excellent. Following that we had monster sized chicken parms,...and an equally impressive chicken Marsala. A dinner for 4 with drinks, 3 apps and dinner for under $100. Pretty impressive and we’d go back! Go...you’ll enjoy yourselves!More

Really like this place. It's small, so I'm sure there are times it's tough to get in, but the pasta is very good, and the service is generally terrific. Portions, I think, are a little large, but that's probably typical for this kind of place.

While visiting Beverly to see a show at the theater there, we decided to give this place a try. Let me tell you that the food is amazing and made us feel as though we were back in Italy. We started with the sausage, vinegar...peppers, and potatoes and the taste was out of this world. For our entrees we had the chicken parm (my go-to at a new Italian restaurant) and shrimp risotto. The chicken was fried to perfection and the risotto cooked perfectly. The homemade fusilli pasta complemented the chicken parm very well. We did have a slight issue while at the restaurant, but the manager, Matt, could not have been more gracious or professional in how he handled things. It felt as though we made a friend during our visit to the restaurant! As frequent visitors to the Boston area, we will certainly be back and I can't wait to have that appetizer again!More
