We enjoyed a very tasty lunch here, but especially appreciated the surroundings. What a fun eclectic mix of furnishings and accessories. We had fish sandwiches--a grilled tuna for one and a salmon for another. The buns were huge and the fish portions generous. The salmon had a uniquely smoky taste and the tuna was fresh and very large. Both sandwiches... More

Fantastic! Very surprised by the food in small-town Iowa. Special was scallop wrap with goat cheese, greens, balsamic vinaigrette. Excellent. Great salad and soup. Atmosphere was also delightful.

We ate here for lunch and was very good ! Prices are reasonable , service was outstanding and the food was amazing. I did get cheesecake for desert and was by far the best I have ever had! When in the area I will definitely go back.

The service was a little slow this particular day but the food was well worth the wait. We each tried something different and all three meals were delicious. Highly recommend the crab cakes.

Tuscan Moon is a favorite restaurant-fine food, great service, and atmosphere. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. We have lunch there often, it is worth the short drive.

This place is definately worth a visit. The food was great. I was in a group of 7 and we all ordered something different and everything was wonderful. They were busy and our server did great even with the number of large parties. It's a but more expensive than maybe a family restaurant or bar, but the food is well... More
