Arrived not long after opening hours without reservations and was given a table, very kind staff, lovely menu and tasted even better. Very impressed with the choice of non alcoholic drinks. Will 100% return when back in the area.

We visited Tuscany Bistro, Ballina last weekend while on a family holiday. On arrival we were greeted by the manager who was super friendly, checked our Covid vaccination certs and then led us to our table. Our waiter for the evening couldn’t have been more...helpful, offering dish & drinks recommendations when asked. Myself, my mother and my sister all agreed our meal was the tastiest we had eaten in a long time. The cocktails were pretty amazing too!!! We will definitely be back!More

Had a wonderful experience last weekend getting take away from Tuscany. Having had a very tough mom day with a sick child (not Covid related) I decided to opt for a takeaway. We were late-ish as they were 5 minutes from closing. The girl who...answered literally couldn’t have been nicer, my kids were being fussy and asked for something that isn’t technically on the menu, she offered to ask the kitchen and came back to say no problem. I explained that I didn’t really feel like popping in and she offered to drop the take away out to the car. She asked what I would be driving and kept an eye out. I pulled up outside and a very polite young man dropped the food to the car (less than 2 minutes after I pulled up) Now I used to own restaurants in a past life, and so know what 5 minutes before closed on a weekend in the summer is like… I cannot recommend them highly enough for the service. 10:10 The food was awesome.. Really really excellent. We have eaten here many times prior to lockdown and it never disappoints, but I think how the staff are dealing with the takeaway menu in conjunction with all the restrictions being reopen is remarkable. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a night off once in a While.. no dishes or clean up.. and no guilt ….. and it truly tastes homemade anyway ( you could plate it up and not say a word) 😉🤫 Well done Tuscany, we love you guysMore

I ordered takeaway pizzas on 2 occasions and both times I experienced significant delays after arriving at the pickup time. The second time I had to cancel the order as after waiting 25 minutes beyond the pickup time, I was told they had to redo...one of the pizzas and it was going to take another 20 minutesMore

Ate here with family and friends whilst on a staycation. Food was excellent as was the service. It was so good that we got some takeaway the following evening.

I ordered the cannelloni. It really isnt suitable for outdoor dining. I mean it was messy. It has way to much sauce and it was really salty i could hardly taste the tomato. The salad was average to. It is however a lovely looking restarant...and maybe indoor dining might be nicer. My husband thought his pizza was ok.More

This was my first time out for food since the begging of lockdown (and my last as lockdown was announced as we were eating). This place is 10/10!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t rate the staff and the quality of food more highly. Felt super safe with the...auld covid procedures. I’ve been thinking and telling everyone about this spot for the last week!
