Since our last visit we again went to Tosca's for a pre show dinner (Phantom of the Opera) and it was as good as ever. The reastaurant was full and from the conversation it seems as though much of the clientel were regulars.
Once again we were not disappointed.

“AMAZING”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Used this restaurant prior to a show at the Mayflower Theatre. We arrived at 6.00 as per our booking, the place was absolutely packed but our table was waiting for us. The courtesy of the staff allayed our fears that there might be some delay. The menu had changed since our last visit, with an accent on Pasta and Pizza, there were the usual starters however, and some special dishes were offered. We chose these, Salmon in Filo Pastry, Port Roulade and Beef Stew with Dumplings. The Mussles (starter) were some of the best I have ever eaten, with lashings of sauce, which nearly doubled as a bowl of soup. A wonderful meal. Would you believe it, the whole of the restaurant were paid up and left before the performance began at 7.30. Just amazing. All for about £27.00 each including drinks.

“What a gem”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Whilst visiting the Mayflower Theatre we popped into the neighbouring pub for a quick Saturday lunch but it was heaving so we checked outside saw Tosca's and initially thought oh well it's better than nothing. Wow it was fabulous and a real find. Great food, superb service, excellent value and the loos are top notch too. I would visit Southampton just for the restaurant. Well done xx

“Quick lunchtime visit”
Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Called in as our usual pre-theatre pub was full!
Good value main courses - very tasty pasta dishes.
Drinks a bit pricey.
The waiting staff were friendly and very Italian!
Would def go back next time we are seeing something at the Mayflower theatre.

“Freshly cooked beautiful Italian food”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

During a recent stay in Southampton, I stumbled across this very pleasant restaurant, where even though it was busy, I was made very welcome and as a single diner was not made to feel a spare part, the food was delicious with menu and special board with excellen attentive servce, so good ate here on the following night as well.
Excellent value for money and well worth it.
