“Great meal!”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

We had a great meal at this authentic Italian restaurant. The service and food were first rate. I had the Pollo Verano and it was good, but my wife's shrimp scampi was better. The best meal at our table was an Italian sausage with pasta that had a unique and excellent flavor. What a shame that we were too full to try dessert. Glad we didn't miss the martinis. ;)

“First Rate Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I come to Wilkes Barre a lot to see our son and his wife. We have been looking for a great Italian restaurant and we can now say we have found a gem! We have been to Tuscany, Italy many times and Cafe Toscana is just as good as any cafe we restaurant in Italy. What is even more amazing is the quality and attention to detail all of the entrées have. Also the prices are very reasonable. We will definitely be back again and again!

“Terrific Food”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Five of us booked for dinner prior to evening at theater. Food was wonderful, we all sampled appetizers, different entrees, dessert, coffee and, of course, drinks. Everything was really great. I had steak that was cooked to perfection. Staff were very accommodating when a sixth friend joined us at the last minute. Atmosphere was great. We did ask for butter three times, which never arrived, but all in all a wonderful time. Would definintely recommend this place and will go again.

“Food, Service and a Great Bartender”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Last night we had another "pre-concert-dinner" at Café Toscana. And once again where the simple unimposing exterior ends, a great restaurant begins. On busy nights, reservations are a must, but the bar was filled with happy diners as well - those who insisted on being there even without a table. And no one is disappointed. The special appetizers for each day are creative, delicious and generously portioned. We should have stopped there, but the entree's are all excellent. As is the service. We were never rushed - in fact we were given all the time we wanted for pre-dinner drinks and after dinner coffee. Another great experience in a consistently excellent downtown restaurant. Worth a 90 minute drive for us.

“Great find on the square!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Lovely little place...perfect location. The menu is quite extensive and everything sounds fantastic. Hard to pick only ONE appetizer and ONE entree! Nice atmosphere. Went for dinner with another couple before a show at the FM Kirby Center. Staff is very aware you need to make it to the show and accommodates accordingly. Next time, would like to have a drink at the bar and take time for dinner. Will definitely go again and every time I'm at the Kirby.
