After our first choice restaurant was busy, their hostess suggested Tuscany. Not far away, we decided to take her advice. We'd have done better to wait the hour for a table there. Tuscany 's interior isn't kitchy, more an homage to the owners. Probably should have had clue when a highlighted celeb guest was RHOA's Kim Zolciak: Tuscany is flash but no substance.

Good selection but nothing to be excited about. My Pappardelle Bolognese was bland although the serving size was good. My husband's recommended Sangria tasted like cough syrup. The surroundings were nice save for multiple TVs looping advertisements for laser treatments and real estate. The bill for 2 adults and 2 teens hit $100 (one ordered from the kids menu). The meal was not worth the money but the entertainment we derived from trying to figure out if our server's exaggerated accent was real or fake at least gave us a laugh.

Don't spend your money here. Tuscany's food is on par with nearby Carraba's - you'll do just as well there with more value for your money.

Fantastic! I was in town lecturing with a group from the office. This restaurant was selected to accommodate our group of approximately 20. We were warmly greeted by the Owner (or Manager) and served family style. Due to the family style, I was able to taste numerous entrees and appetizers. Everything was good: the calamari, salad, lasagna, spaghetti, tortellini, etc. The servers seemed to be actually Italian from Italy. The ambiance was pleasant and romantic. Upon a return to the Destin area I would most definitely return.

Had dined in this restaurant and my experienced from service to food had been excellent. Thought it was just a one time deal, so, i came several times and started my orders from the top of the list to the last one. Never had a bad meal. So, i'd say, you do not have to go to Italy to have an excellent italian meal. Just drop by at Tuscany at Destin, Fl. And may i add, i am not even an Italian.

We really enjoyed this place. From the great wine selection to the shrimp pasta and nice desserts. We'll certainly revisit.

I have been here 2 times, this year. Not the best, but certainly not the worst Italian restaurant. Service was slow at times. It could have been that the restaurant was pretty full and our waiter was "bouncing" between tables. I could eat spaghetti bolanaise every day and Tuscany's was no exception.
