This was our first visit to Toscana's, outstanding beginning to end. The bread with the dipping sauce was an excellent start. Appetizers, soup, salads and entrees were all very good. Our small group had a variety of items, from veal, chicken, and fish to spaghetti and gnocchi. The gravy was delicious, tasty but not overpowering. If you still have room after dinner, try the lemonchello pie or the cannoli.
The server was attentive and right on top of his game. As a "heads up" this is a smaller restaurant and I would strongly recommend reservations. Coming this way via Little Italy, the North End and Federal Hill, I can safely say this is probably the best Italian in Myrtle Beach.
We will definatly return next year.

“Good good and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

We arrived at 6:35 on a Wednesday and was asked if we had a reservation which we did not. They still graciously found us a table. My recommendation is to definitely make reservations.
Henry R. was our waiter and he was pleasantly attentive to us despite having a large table and another small table.
The restaurant is small and noisy but has an elegant decor.
I ordered the Zappa di pesce, the majority was disappointingly calamari with 2 shrimps, small pieces of grouper, 2 clams, 8 mussels and a small piece of lobster claw over linguini. It was good but pricey at $28.95. My husband ordered the veal parmigiana and he said the meat was tender and very good.
The warm bread with olive oil dip was good also.

“"B" Minus ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

My family & I chose this place because of the reviews, we made a reservation for 7:30 and weren't seated until 7:50, perhaps because the reservation was under "Amanda" instead of Walt, how the confusion happened, I have no idea!! Anyway, we eventually got seated and waited a while before a waitress came to take our drink order. We asked for some bread and Alfredo to use as dipping sauce, I must admit the Alfredo was amazing!! We ordered the chicken Marsala, gnocchi with meatballs and spaghetti and meatballs. The chicken Marsala was good, tasted fresh, gnocchi was okay at best, the meatballs we added to the gnocchi saved the dish! Come to find out, they were some of the best meatballs we've had, the spaghetti was bland unfortunately.. At the end of our meal, we got our check and I realized that our 6 year olds spaghetti and meatballs were $14
Instead of $6 as the kids menu stayed.. I asked our waitress about it and she just said "I'm sorry, you didn't have a kids menu so I charged you for the regular" .. We actually did have a kids menu.. After clarifying this with her, I had to ask to have the price changed on our bill, this was disappointing. Overall, it was an okay experience, just wish the customer service was better.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I dined here during our recent vacation and it was excellent! It was definitely the best meal that we had. We arrived at opening without reservations, but were seated quickly. We ordered the bruschetta as an appetizer and it was not only delicious but elegantly plated. My husband had the lasagna and I had the crab stuffed chicken. Both were amazing, full of flavor. The bread and dipping oil were easily the best we have had anywhere. After eating here, I can see why this restaurant is ranked so high on tripadvisor.

“Simply delicious ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is definitely one I'll go back to. My fiancée and I visited to celebrate our engagement and everything was simply wonderful. I ordered the chicken Romano and was not disappointed. The chicken was delicious and the sauce was exceptional. My fiancée ordered the lobster claw fra diablo which he also loved (it was spicy, just how he likes it lol) the bread was also very good and I believe homemade (I believe everything is made from scratch) we had soup before our meal which was also really good. The restaurant was beautiful and comfy it wasn't a place you had to whisper in or feel uncomfortable. The staff was also very nice and accommodating. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone at myrtle beach it's the best italian I've ever had.
