Great food and great service, traditional European portions so go for the starter and main but the menu is accommodating to this. Well stocked bar and staff are very pleasant

Great spot for catching up with friends. We shared Salads. Pasta trio. Excellent Berkshire chop. Great wine and you have to get the fig desert! Service is 5 Star. Pricey but worth it for a great evening

Tosca is usually highly rated but that doesn’t really indicate how superb this eatery is. The pastas are simply fantastic, homemade and with sauce that will haunt your tastebuds and drag you back.

Yet while I taste the pastas, I cannot pass up the fish and meat. Artistry in fish is difficult to find and it only begins with the fish being flaky and silky, but somehow they coax out unreal flavor in the cooking before saucing, if any. The Branzino on my this occasion was grilled with a mouth watering char. But the same artistry is brought to beef, pork and the best veal chop you will ever eat.

The service is superb, often lacking, in other restaurants and if you’re not treated almost as family then the fault was probably you.

When you love a restaurant as much as I adore Tosca, there is a tendency to idealize the experience setting up for a letdown the next time. That has never happened in the many years I have dined here. I just love this place.

The service and food were great. Though the menu was somewhat underwhelming, we enjoyed the food. The dress is business casual and at lunch on a weekday this place is full of business lunchers, which makes sense. The curtains are drawn on all windows, and the decor is that of a slightly outdated hotel, with stiff fabrics in warm tones. I would not go back, given the plentiful other options in the city.
