A group of colleagues and I went here for dinner. The meatballs we had as an app were good. The antipasti plate was unimpressive in presentation and selection. I had orecchiete with broccoli rabe and sausage for dinner. The sausage wasn’t great and the dish...More

I had a social/business dinner here on a Wednesday evening with five other guests. I rarely order pasta at a restaurant but the waiter made the pasta special (rigatoni) sound good. I am glad I ordered this dish because it was the best tasting pasta...More

Pedestrian Italian/American food. Desultory service. The portions were large and adequate. The tiramisu was so-so. Would not go out of my way to eat here.

This is a great Italian restaurant with a seasonal menu located close to Highway 101 across the Golden Gate Bridge. The service is exceptional and the food is carefully prepared and delicious.

Toscana is a nice, friendly Italian restaurant. The bartender made my martini exactly the way I like. The veal scalloppini was so-o-o-o tender (but NOT mushy) and tasty! Looking forward to a return visit!
