My first time to this Metro style cafe in the square in Wilkes Barre was a total delight. We were celebrating my son's college graduation as well as his girlfriend and her brother. Two families with a total of 18 guests. Place was clean, accommodating...More

Seated quickly and wait staff was very attentive. The chicken was a bit dry and the vodka sauce was very salty. This is my first visit. Willing to try a different dish.

Food was excellent from Caesar Salad, Bread with seasoned olive oil, bruschetta, and entrees. Reasonable pricing and full bar. I walked in without a reservation ( I would definitely suggest), luckily got the last available table. Restaurant was packed by 7pm. Would definitely return.

Great authentic Italian food. Been there twice now and not dissatisfied either time. The complimentary Brushetta and dipping sauce is worth the trip in and of itself. Had the asparagus ravioli and the veal toscana and both were very good as well as the desserts....More

Cafe Toscana is a great Italian restaurant located on the square in Wilkes-Barre. I've had dinner and lunch there a few times and for the most part the food has been great. The chicken Marsala is on of the few that is done to perfection....More

Unfortunately, I'm not sure. I know they have items on their menu that are gluten free, such as chicken etc, but I would recommend giving them a call to be sure.

They do not have a private party room. They have discrete areas. But depending on the number you could rent the whole restaurant.
