“Over priced mediocre food.”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Dishes have potato sides instead of pasta. Nasty charge to substitute pasta. Why would I go to an Italian restaurant to be forcefed tasteless potatoes?

“Bella Toscana Ristorante”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

What a great addition to our culinary choices. This new restaurant is located where La Crepe was for many years. Sadly, La Crepe had gone slowly down hill and Ormond Beach was the less for it's demise. Toscana although a different cuisine more than fills the bill. A wonderful job was done on the decor and it has a warm and elegant feel to it. Our regular dining companions joined us and we were each delighted. Mario, our server, was knowledgeable, attentive and great fun. The ladies had the Chicken Piccata and loved it , I had the Scottish salmon filet sautéed with black olives, capers, onions, vine ripened plum tomatoes with a splash of white wine on the advise of Mario and was very pleased. Overall , just a great veining made better by two bottles of Pinot Noir and great company in wonderful surroundings. Light background music and good acoustics (I hate noisy restaurants ).We will certainly become regular diners at Toscana and based on our first impressions can certainly recommend you try it. It joins the tradition of fine dining in Ormond Beach and believe it compares well with Rose Villa. Oh, they have several dining rooms, a bar and seating outside on the balcony and regular wine tasting events.

“Delicious food, elegant setting....”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

This was a lovely restaurant tucked away a bit. The setting is elegant, beautiful china, candles and finely dressed staffed worthy of any special occasion. The only thing I didn't like was the mirrored wall which my table was up against. The food was very good - perfect portions. I would call the service moderate - while everyone was friendly requests were forgotten; we asked for a bottle of still water and never received it. When we asked the second time a bottle of sparkling appeared - not really what we wanted but we drank it anyway. I did feel the prices were very good and would return with the hopes of improved service. *I didn't realize outdoor seating was available until we left - it was a lovely night and I wish we had been offered that option.

“Great Food, need to work on service and customer satisfaction”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

after reading the most recent review, February 10 2013, we couldn't have said it better. For the price points of their specials, over $35, to not allow for potato/vegetable substitutions makes no sense. service was fine in the beginning, but once it got busy, we were quickly forgotten and when we asked for a check, were treated rudely. Intend to keep this on the list of possible destinations because the food was excellent, but will be quick to remove from list if treated equally as poorly on a return visit.

“Review”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

The food was excellent. The presenation was wonderful. I did not want potatoes with my meal and wanted a side dish of pasta. There were no exchanges. It cost $6.50 for a side order of pasta which was a thin spaghetti. It tasted like a store bought pasta. It was not the $6.50 that bothered us, but the idea -- why potatoes in an Italian Restaurant?? If they are trying to aggravate people they are very successful. Why wouldn't they allow separate checks for further aggravations of customers?? The food is excellent, but they do not make you feel that the customer is # 1. It seems that it is there way or the high way!! The customer is not # 1 which is shameful. We will still enjoy this restaurant, but not as often. Are they sending patrons away??? We think so!!
