“Food very good, Location...eh”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I had seafood pasta and it was excellent. The bruschetta was good but not anything that I had not had before. Their soups were tasty and pizza looked very good.
Downside: the restaurant is basically in a gas station parking lot. To be fair, the gas station is in front of the restaurant but we watched many cars fill up while we ate. If the restaurant was anywhere else it probably would be rated higher. So to avoid this scene sit inside.
The service was slow and unresponsive. We arrived early and expected to be told they would open in 20 minutes. They said they were open but we sat for nearly twenty minutes until I finally asked for menus. I had to ask for my food, and finally for the check. While we were finishing our meals we saw our waiter crossing the gas station on his return from a local store.
They should do better.
My rating is based on the food but downgraded based on service and location.

“Good family-run joint!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Situated in Tirrenia, which is a sea-side resort just off Pisa, Il Toscano was a natural choice being one of a handful open for business over Easter. The food was good. My wife and I started off with a Ribollita Toscana and Fiochetti alla Pera. For mains we opted for meat. I had filetto Chianti and my better half opted for a Filetto Griglia. To compliment the meal we had a Chianti Classico. Price, including coperto (which I find quite irrational) and a tip, came to EUR40 a head.

“Average beach area restaurant”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Entering in later in the evening in May, the restaurant was still quite crowded, maybe due to the fact that all the restaurant were not open yet in Tirrenia. No highligths with the food, fried seafood with french fries, maybe we missed something in the menu. You get the dinner and can continue whenever you want. Cannot be easier.

“Good food, good ambiance”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This restaurant came highly recommended from a friend. Unfortunately, it didn't completely live up to the hype. It was good. The food was good, but not spectacular. The ambiance was good, although it was a little confusing between restaurant and art gallery.

The dessert left a little to be desired. The tiramasu was too creamy, which in turn made the wafers soggy. And there was a little too much cocoa on top for my taste. Not horrible, but not worth the money, at least to me. The creme brulee, on the other hand, was delightful!

Overall, a good restaurant, but not great. Eat there, but don't make a special trip.

“Good food but not as great as Lo Squalo next door”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Nice ambiance and the service was pretty good. A nice platter of grilled squid but the taste was not that special. If you like kareoke, they have live kareoke the whole evening.
