True Authentic Italian Food. Seafood plus classic Italian dishes cannot be better. Run by Italians and nothing is done in a microwave like the chains. I would Highly recommend this restaurant for an outstanding meal. You better make reservations early or you will not get...in!!!More

Horrible service. We had reservations but the hostess sat people she knew that came in after us. There was about 20 people lined up out the door there’s no place to wait inside. A woman rushed by to get in and almost knocked over my...90 year old mom. It was chaos and we left.More

The first time we went to the Tuscany, we had the most delicious Italian meal we had ever had except for one when we were in Italy. It was the night's Special -- Grouper with scallops and shrimp in a delicious sauce. The restaurant was...not crowded, and we had excellent service. We returned the next week with friends and again ordered the night's Special, which was the same Special we had the week before. This time almost all the tables were filled and they were short-staffed. (We were told a waiter had called off.) Service was understandably slow and while our meal was still good, it didn't match the delicious meal we had the week before. I would still return to the Tuscany but if it didn't measure up to the first time, we might try other Italian restaurants.More

Am disappointed. Tonight, I walked into Tuscany Italian Bistro Emerald Coast Parkway Destin Florida. I felt so not wanted. The host was making reservations for the order lady table of five. She ignored my present. I ordered to go salad at the bar. The bartender...hurried to get me out. I tried small talk, but he was not interested. After, I took my order, walked out, and because I did not look like the people dining. I was treated as less important. I wonder when will we come together as a human race. Not judge on skin color. Lastly, I pray the day love will overrule hatred. God bless the business.More

We stay in the Sandestin area so we decided to give the place a try. Made reservations for 4 people. We were seated right away. The downside of this place is the ambience is nothing great, so we have learned in Destin you can't have...it all with a few restaurant exceptions, you either have great food and no views or mediocre to poor food with a view. So this falls into the no view or ambience category, it's located in a shopping center and we were sat by a window to watch people carrying to go pizza away. Our waitress Carly was very nice but not overly attentive and seemed scattered. The bread here is great but only one basket is free which at a nice restaurant to me seems cheap. We had the fried ravioli to start and they were good but these are pretty standard. No salads come with your meal either. I had the RIGATONI ALLA CIOCIARA, it was delicious and everyone tried it said it was th best of the 4 dishes, One of our party had the spaghetti & meatballs, which they said was good but the sauce was a bit to sour and not sweet (so that really depends on your preference) Both of these portions were a very nice size. My husband had the RISOTTO ALLA TOSCANA, the grouper was barely blackened and he said it was pretty bland. Someone else had the INSALATA DELLA CASA Salad w/ Chicken, this portion was so small it was just a very small dinner salad with some chopped chicken. So this place can be 5 stars depending on what you get, I would recommend getting a pasta dish as the consensus was these were good and good portions. Prices are fair here also, we would come back next year.More

My husband and I live nearby but have never tried this place. We decided to go on a Saturday night in tourist season, but thankfully, they take reservations, so we were able to get in and seated with no wait. They have indoor seating with...a lovely ambiance, but we chose to be seated outside in the pretty courtyard near the fountain and herb garden (basil and rosemary are two I was able to identify). Our server was prompt and very personable, even with my British husband, who is quite the comical handful! We were given a basket of freshly baked Italian bread rolls, garlic olive oil, and butter. So yummy! We started with the toasted ravioli, then my husband had the Linguini Pescadore (pasta heavily laden with nearly every seafood you can imagine), and I had the blackened grouper, scallops, and risotto. The wine list is not overly extensive but includes some really nice Italian selections, especially reds. I had a Chianti Classico Reserve, which was delicious! In fact, everything was perfect. My husband raved over his seafood pasta and how fresh and flavorful it was. My grouper and scallops were among the best I've ever had, and the risotto was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We can't wait to go back and try everything! The price was reasonable for fine dining. Highly recommend!More

We have been going to Tuscany Bistro for 25 years… , first as Guglielmo’s, then Tuscany on Rte 98, and now the Bistro. It was my wife’s favorite restaurant in Destin area. As she was dying, she asked us to visit again.. The food was...fabulous, as usual, and we got to speak with Guglielmo again. The wine selection is excellent, fabulous food, and great Italian atmosphere…More

The food was excellent and the service was superb. I had the Lamb Alla Tuscano which was the best lamb I ever had. If you like lamb, give it a try. My wife had the Ravioli Pomodoro which she loved. The salad, bread with oil,...and the Tiramisu were delicious also…everything we tried was great. Staff and management were charming and attentive. Obviously a group of talented people who enjoy their craft and take pleasure in what they do.More

Picked this restaurant based on reviews and it didn’t disappoint! Authentic Italian! My husband had the lasagna which in my opinion was enough for 3 people. I had the seafood special over vermicelli which included mussels, clams lobster tail, shrimp and grouper. Watching the other...tables, you get plenty of food & will not go home hungry. We also had the calamari which was very good (fresh) & loved the marinara. Special thanks to our server David who made our evening one to remember.More

Went to Tuscany Bistro and we were surprised how large it was - lots of outdoor seating and indoor air conditioned. It was pleasant so we ate in the back. Looking at the restaurant from 98 - it's on the left side of the strip...mall. Ordered the house red ($11) and it was great -light and not too dry. I got the rigatoni with Italian sausage (mild) and mushrooms. It came with a pink sauce that was so good I probably would have eaten gravel with that sauce on it. Serving could easily serve two people ($25). Spouse got the salmon with asparagus (large serving size again). We tried two desserts: Spumoni Bomba ($10) which was strawberry, pistachio, and chocolate gelatos wrapped in chocolate (enough for two) and homemade tiramisu ($10) just to try it out as a sense of duty). Service was excellent. It was the best meal I've had in years. Make a reservation by phone. We went early to beat the crush. Dedicated staff has been there for years. Wow!More

These guys know how to cater to a good sized group. I was there for a business trip and the Bistro was our spot one night for dinner. It was amazing. The service was very good and all the food delicious. We had so many...courses I lost count, but I imagine that the regular menu would be amazing too. Full bar and a nice wine list.More
