The entrance to the cafe seems a bit odd since you enter through the convenience store attached to a gas station. But once in the restaurant you are met with a pleasing atmosphere. Our table in a room with a fireplace was at a table by the window that looked out on a fish pond. The menu gave several choices... More

The restaurant is attached to a convenience store. Once you are inside, the restaurant is actually pretty nice. The service was good, but my chicken Parmesan was average. Several people in my group enjoyed their meal, so maybe I ordered the wrong thing.

Great business lunch- big portions! Try the lettuce wrap appetizers- excellent. Great service, tasty lunch, good prices...still shocked at the location. Had locals not told me about this place, I would have missed it. Great choice for a meal in Pocatello. About 3-4 minutes away from Idaho State U campus.

I went there on the recommendation of the Holiday Inn Express staff. Decent (Americanized) Italian food. Weird entrance, which is through the convenience store attached to a gas station.

After driving for almost 10 hours, we stopped to get gas and saw this little cafe, so decided to get some dinner. This is the fanciest gas station restaurant we've ever seen. Lovely sit down place with great service, nice ambiance and WONDERFUL food. The portions are HUGE so I asked for a to-go box straight away. It was nice... More

Road-weary after driving nearly 500 miles, it took us a couple of minutes to figure out how to get into the restaurant--you go through the convenience store to discover the attractive, attached lounge and dining room. Cafe Tuscano is small, but the service and food are "king sized"! The dining room has a large window overlooking a pond with a... More

I read all the reviews listed plus we are house/dog sitting for some friends and they said it was a good place as well. The entrance is in a gas station. I first thought it would be an older type station but it is relatively new. Basically this restaurant is just off the interstate and near many hotels so most... More

This is some of the best food in Pocatello. You will be shocked to see this restaurant is in a gas station. The food nd drinks are great and the wine list is really great.

The pizzas and the pastas are great. Being next to the gas station store is very bizarre, but it is possible to find a nice table. I believe this is the best Italian food in town, bar none. I definitively recommend this restaurant.

Upscale decor and landscaping make you forget we are part of a Shell station. We can seat up to 99. Accommodate up to four groups at a time in private. We are extremely quite and love it when people linger over their meal. Our wine cellar offers a selection of 300 different wines from the world over.
