“Absolutely Outstanding”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

There are some very good Italian restaurants in the Myrtle Beach area , including Valentinos 2 , and Villa Romana . But I think that Toscana is the best in the area . The entrees , the appetizers , the soup , and even the bread were fantastic . Second time here , so it wasn't just this visit . Will look forward to many more dinners here . Highly reccomend it .

“Perfection!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Stumbled onto this little bistro by accident while searching for a nice birthday dinner spot for myselt. Wonderful atmosphere, twinkly lights and linen table cloths. The chicken picatta was intense layers of flavor. The wine selection perfect. The owner brought me a slice of the most perfectly light and delicious creme cake with a candle (brought a tear to my eye!). Overall, a perfect evening and I can't wait to return here. Don't miss this!

“All White”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We found this place while riding down kings Hwy. As we entered all I was greeted with was WHITE everything. We were the only ones there to eat that night so the service was A1. The wine we wanted was not available but they did sell us a more expensive bottle for the price of the cheaper one we wanted to start with. The calamari app was very good and fresh. I had a chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese and red peppers that was just ok. The chicken was very thin an not much meat. It came with pasta and red sauce. My friend had the lasagna that she said was good but not the best she had ever had. Her husband had a pasta dish with vodka sauce the he thought was to dark to be a vodka sauce but he said the flavors worked well. Not sure I will be back but my friends might.

Veney M, Owner at Toscana Italian bistro, responded to this review, January 30, 2013
Thank you for dining with us, we appreciate your business like we do for all our customers. The reason the chicken was thin on the chicken veiniciana because it is a stuffed chicken with peppers and the goat cheese. If the chicken is not thin it is impossible to stuff and cook it. And also the reason on the penne alla vodka for being a little dark on the sauce is because we sautee the procutto really really well to get more flavors. We are a family owned restaurant, Im the chef and owner, we buy the best product money can and make our own pasta fresh daily. And all our other ingredients are all homemade. We work hard day and night sorry that you were not impressed, everybody has different taste buds and if you ever decide to come back, we will make you anything you would like.

Thank you, Chef Veney

“Great Italian veal”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Had dinner in this quaint little strip mall Italian eatery tonight, not very big, cream colored decor, but well recommended. I ordered the veal parmigiana with salad and bread and shiraz. The veal was GREAT! The pasta was very good and the salad was good. Service was attentive, and cost was not cheap, but ok. Overall, great italian food.

“Anniversary Dinner”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Good, but not top 10 worthy for Myrtle Beach. Small, mainly because it is located inside a small shopping plaza. This made it a little hard to find. The food was rich and authentic Italian, so if you are more of a Olive Garden person, be careful of what you order. I thought the decor was beautiful, yet slightly on the gawdy side. Excellent service. Overall a 4 out of 5.
