Love the new decor! Very pleasing improvements made to the dining room decor also seem to help with the acoustics. The service is good, the food is good, it's an easy local spot frequented by "regulars".

We have gone here for years, and I reviewed them a long time ago. But then their food and service went downhill. We stopped going for about 2 years. We went back recently and what an improvement! The salad was absolutely delicious, fresh and alive-the pasta tender, the bread so wonderful with excellent quality olive oil and vinegar. Service was fast and courteous-no hassle about my special requests. Good pricing on wine list (this was an issue before, too). We are so happy to be able to visit them again when we are in the area! Hope you will go, too.

This year our anniversary fell on a Monday. The two restaurants we like the best are closed on Mondays. We had passed by Toscana many times but had never eaten there so we decided to try it. The ambiance is so-so. You enter through the bar and into a large room which on Monday night had few diners. In spite of the lack of diners the service was mediocre. My meal, salad and veal picatta, as OK but nothing special. My husband began his meal with a beef carpacchio which he enjoyed but he was terribly disappointed with his clam spaghetti. The clams were full of grit and he left most of his meal. We did not bother to stay for dessert. Toscana has had some fairly good reviews but maybe they were just having an off night.

We ate here last night for a birthday celebration. The dining room was not very busy so service was attentive and we were well taken care of. I enjoyed an excellent tradition preparation of Canelloni with a stuffing of veal, chicken and pork in two house made crepes and a light bechamel tomato cream sauce. The portion size was generous and I would order again. Next time might go on a Wed night and take advantage of the 1/2 price bottles of wine and free corkage for any wine you bring in.

We had a lovely dinner, with a nice wine selection. Spaghetti and meatballs were excellent.
Lamb chop salad was different and tasty, as was the chicken caesar salad. Other pasta dishes were delicious. Service was attentive.
