I ate here alone at one of the outside tables. The waitress made me feel very welcome. The food was excellent.

“Very good Italian in Altstad”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We had dinner here twice in 2 weeks ... second visit was influenced the wonderful grilled Orata and the Linguini Vongole they served us on first visit. Quality of food on second was just as good, despite a small ordering error which they quickly remedied without any question.Wine list has great Italian selection and a wide price range, although the under-CHF65 selection, with very good wines, was somewhat limited in selection. Service was terrific and friendly - no problem with English when we needed it. Location is very convenient - 50 meters from Limatquay on a small lane and easily accessible by foot from the Hauptbahnhof or center city. 2 levels - compact but pleasant space. I wish they'd opened the windows though - we needed the evening air. We ate at a few Italian places on the visit - Toscano was the least formal but with food and service that matched the best.

Excellent Italian restaurant. I had the raviolini and really loved it! It's pricey, but so is everything in Zurich...

“Pricey but tasty”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

First, don't come here expecting pizza. There is none. That said, Toscana has some delicious, albeit pricey pasta dishes. All the pasta is clearly made from scratch and the presentation is good. But the average cost of a vegetarian pasta dish is approximately CH27. The service was friendly. Overall, good but not great. Value for the money is poor. For CH27, you expect more than a plate of 6 pieces of ravioli. That said, it is Switzerland, and you have to get used to everything being 2-3 times the cost of what you find in many American restaurants. Deserts also good, especially the chocolate soufflé cake. Note that we did not make reservations, but arrived within 5-10 mins of restaurant opening time for dinner. Had no problem finding a seat,but it was also the day of a major Zurich Festival so people were in the streets and not as much in restaurants.
