“St. Pete's Best Kept Secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

We found Toscana's on Tripadvisor and are so glad we did. We have had the Eggplant Parmigiana, Pasta Primavera, Eggplant Parmigiana and Fresco Subs. The Eggplant Parmigiana is the most tender and best we have ever eaten. The Italian bread is delicious and made from scratch. Salads are made with romaine lettuce and fresh. The service is great and everyone is very appreciative of your business. A great dining experience and prices are very reasonable.
We have enjoyed all aspects of our dining experience each time we have been there. Make it a point to go, you won't be disappointed. We will miss eating here when we are up north for the summer, but looking forward to coming back in the fall.

“It doesn't get any better than this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

We found this restaurant by luck, but it is a gem! We have eating there for about 3 months and have nothing but good things to say!! Food is comforting and delicious! We are treated like family when we dine. Our favorite items are Tocana Pizza, (consistently fantastic), Fish sandwich, Calzone, Pasta Faggioli and Chicken soup, (both made from scratch), and Stromboli (another personal favorite). I have to admit I have never ordered anything here that I did not like.

“Terrific Food, Reasonably Priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Boy, you can't judge this book by its cover. This Italian restaurant on a non-descript street housed in an old Pizza Hut looking building has terrific food. I had linguine with clam sauce. The clams were small and very tender and sweet and perfectly spiced. It was super delicious. My mother had the special eggplant dish with sausage and a side of spaghetti. She loved it. The portions were very large. The salads were fine, nothing special except very fresh with nice romaine lettuce. No iceberg here. Oh, and they brought us hot bread - rolls and a very fresh, delicious focacia with olive oil and herb dipping sauce. None of this sounds particularly special, but it was all very nicely done. If I lived near there (and not 500 miles away) this would be a favorite family place.

“FIVE STAR FLAVOR!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I am a local. There are a few good places for authentic Italian food here in St. Petersburg but NONE better than Toscana's! Everything that I have tried on the menu is excellent. If you are particular about veal, this is your new favorite place. Nico is a Master at Italian cuisine at every level. From Pizza & Stromboli to Lobster Ravioli, Toscana's does it BEST!!!

“Simply the best Italian in Tampa Bay Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

I'm a frequent "Flyer" at Toscana. Not sure what is best, the food or the people.
My favorite is the Stromboli!
