5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

I can't come to the bistro and not write about it. It's again very very good. The mozzarella caperse so good with the fresh Basel and perfect sauce, the seafood we both my husband and I had the limoncello and tiramisu as always delicious!! If we need a quite evening and want to enjoy a delicious food that's where we always go. The service is great also and you feel right at home with the attention you get from the staff and the family.

“Best Italian in Myrtle Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Have been visiting Myrtle Beach for over 40 years. Best Italian restaurant in the area by far. A bit higher priced, but great food. Delicious entrees (my wife had chicken, I had seafood) with great sauces. Pasta was best homemade pasta we have had in years. The ciabatta was served warm with olive oil for dipping and was crusty and delicious. A good wine selection was available by the glass. Service was prompt and efficient, and chef was accomodating in modifying one of our dishes. The san marzano sauce was outstanding. The place is clean as a whistle. I talked to Vinnie, the chef, and told him the food was excellent, and he explained how they go the extra mile with imported foods and homemade pasta.

“A visit to Myrtle Beach is not complete without dining at Tuscano Italian Bistro!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

We live in New York but have been to this restaurant four times in the last year and have never been disappointed in fact we are amazed that each time we go it only gets better. The bread and dipping sauce is to die for. I wish they bottled the dip and sold it. My husband is diabetic and was so happy to have homemade whole wheat pasta with his meal. I savor their food and never give a thought to calories. We were the first customers of the new year and were graciously welcomed by Mama and treated to delicious tiramasu for desert. What a way to start the new year!!

“Average Italian”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We went based on ratings from tripadvisor. The bread was burnt. My husband got fettucuni alfredo,which was bland. I got one of their specialty dishes, and it was very good. We ordered tiramisu for dessert, and it was average. It had a great atmosphere in the resturaunt.

thank you for taking your time to write a review, i appreciate your busniess. I am sorry about the bread i wish you would have told the server it was too dark for you she would have givin you more since you can habe as many free refills as you want. the aldredo sauc eis made fresh daily with plenty of flavors and so is the tirimisu. i wish you would have said somthing at the bistro and we would have fixed whatever problem you had. if you ever decide to come back please dont hesitate to let me know what you would like i can make anything you would like or change things up a bit for you

thank you

“Christmas Eve dinner a major success”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Our party of 19 came to Toscana on Christmas Eve and put Chef Vinny to the test. We ordered an assortment of dinners, and appetizers, some made to order, not on the menu. He worked hard and to our amazement, every single dinner was made to perfection. We are not the easiest crowd to please! We are a spoiled bunch, used to the best food. We have an assortment of Italian, German, Irish, Brazilian and Portuguese heritage and his cooking pleased all of our pallets. We come to Myrtle Beach 2-3 times a year and this place is definitely on our list. When we come here, we only visit certain, non touristy restaurants, and Toscana will be a new tradition for our family.

In addition to the excellent, fresh food, the ambiance is very cozy, the wait staff was friendly and it seems a very experienced "overseer" is on the watch to make sure everyone is smiling.
Thank you Vinny for a very special holiday for our family. You are the best! Check it out everyone! You will not be disappointed.
