I had the papardelle with the beef and vegetable ragu and she had the eggplant parm. Both meals were excellent. We also had soup appetizers (pasta fagoli and minestrone) and 2 glasses of wine. The food was excellent. The place was cozy. The bill was $57. Nice.

We had the opportunity to dine at Cafe Tuscana tonight and have to say this restaurant is the best in all of my experiences. From the atmosphere, to the appetizers, the soups, the main course, and the service, everything was beyond spectacular. The cuisine was top quality absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend anyone who appreciates quality and excellence in culinary to stop at Cafe Tuscana. Thank you.

This is a nice dinner venue in downtown Wilkes-Barre located across the square from the FM Kirby Center. The atmosphere was upscale and the decor was clean and attractive. Most poeple were in casual dress attire with a few in ties and dresses. We were going to a show at the Kirby Center and arrived a few hours early to look around. There is not much in this area of town (an early Boscov's department store that will return you to the era of downtown department stores instead of malls if you are feeling nostalgic), some bars that seem to be marketing towards King's and Wilkes college students and a few eateries. It is probably a busy weekday banking/business area but it was very quiet on a late Saturday afternoon. We walked in at five (when they opened) and were only able to have a table by the bar at the front door because they were booked with reservations until after showtime. The front staff indicated they were booked since Thursday. The waitstaff was courteous, but not hovering. When it began to get busy, they seemed a bit rushed. I had the scallops special which was a bit too salty, but my husband had the salmon which was very tasty. The bruschetta was very nice and the pyramid chocolate mousse dessert was fantastic. Serving size was generous but not too large. This was a nice meal. The food was quite good, but not phenomenal. As there seems to be little else in this level of eatery in that immediate area, I would definitely recommend it. They have an accurate website link with a listing of their menu items.I do not have experience with other restaurants in WB. We enjoyed our visit.

Northern Italian cuisine, excellent service, reasonable prices, large portions, I'd love to go back, if ever in W-B. Recommended by our hotellier at the Best Western Genetti, and it was a great tip!
