Everything was very good starting with the bread and Italian dipping sauce. The pasta was cooked to perfection and all the food was fresh.

Have eaten here several times and the food is always good. They have traditional Italian that we always enjoy. Convenient in downtown Wilkes Barre.

We were visiting the area and discovered Cafe Toscana. Cafe Toscana is privately owned Italian restaurant in downtown Wilkes-Barre. We had a reservation on a Saturday night but there were plenty of available tables and we were seated immediately. The food is authentic Italian and very good. They also have a wide selection of wines and craft beers. The wait staff is very attentive and the service was excellent. The prices were on a par with other up-scale restaurants in the area. Parking in the downtown area is usually a problem, but meters are free after 6PM and we able to find a spot on Public Square. For someone who is used to the crowded restaurants and high prices in the big city, finding a restaurant with authentic Italian food, good service and reasonable prices with a small town atmosphere was a pleasant experience.

Cafe Toscana was suggested to a friend when a group of us were looking for a restaurant on a recent Friday night. None of us are locals and we were at a loss as to where we could find a good meal. Cafe Toscana turned out to be a great suggestion. The decor is fine, not particularly special but open, spacious and nice. The service is spotty--the waiters were eager but a bit inept. They forgot one drink order, never delivered requested tea after dinner and seemed a bit confused most of the time. I can forgive all of that because the food was delicious. Each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I had linguini with red clam sauce and it was excellent--just enough spice in the sauce and plenty of clams. The bread was warm and fresh and served with a nice olive oil/herb mix. This will be a "must dine" when I'm back in W-B. If they get the service problems fixed, Cafe Tuscano would easily move to an "excellent" rating.
