My dad and I came here for lunch and had a delightful time. The steamed mussels were very tasty! I had the tagliatelle bolognese and my dad had the mushroom cavatelli. Good service and good food-can't beat that!

We have been coming to Tuscan Bistro for years. The best veal scallopini around and the bolognese is consistently top notch. Warm ciabatta with with pesto oil always great. Tiramisu also outstanding.

Staff was friendly but not what I expected for the prices. I really hate to say it but the food was simply not good. Menu choices were odd. My girlfriend didn't like it either. Very bland.
