“Quiet, romantic, delicious!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Eight of us had a wonderful dinner at Toscana. The service staff was super, the ambience was great, and everyone gave thumbs up for their food. As we are a bit on the other side of 60, it was nice to have a quiet environment where we could actually hear each other. Price was on point for northern Italian cuisine. Some of us just ordered a couple of appetizers as an alternative to a main entree. Linen tablecloths were a nice touch - too often lacking in restaurants of late. You can review the menu, etc. on their website - http://toscanadowntown.com

“A nice continental restaurant”
Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Toscana is in downtown Fargo. It is a hopping downtown where Toscana occupies a corner location only one block from the popular Hotel Donaldson and the Fargo Theater. The decor is traditional. Some may find it outdated but it works for them. It isn't large so reservation is needed especially on weekend where it is full. The menu choices are staggering. I don't know how they do it. It isn't really all Italian. There are many French items. The service isn't your authentic Italian either. It has more or less confirmed to an international/continental format. Pasta choices are full main-course size rather than the Italian primo size as a first course. There are also steaks. National authenticity isn't all that important when the format works and it tastes good. The chef from Lucca does a good job managing this vast menu. Everything comes out looking good, fresh and hot. The service is attentive and swift. When you ask for something special to be done, it gets done and quickly. All of our dishes were good to excellent. This isn't haut cuisine. Presentation is good but not fussed about. Most main courses are priced at around $20 with just a few at the upper $20's. The wine list is extensive with an international offering. Most are at twice of retail which isn't bad. For fine dining, the price/value ratio puts this restaurant in solid competition with the best in town.

“Not what I thought.”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Italian Restaurant.
The food is pricier than I have have come to expect from Italian restaurants. Especially the seafood dishes.
The meals are ok.

However I have had better for the same price. And I have had better for less.

“bella”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We had a fabulous dinner, drinks and dessert. very authentic to us. Our waitress was great, attentive without being intrusive. The restaurant was not overly crowded but we did not feel encouraged to stay and relax, but that was more the overall feeling in the restaurant and not the fault of our waitress. We will still go back when we are in Fargo again.
