This is my "go to" place on a Friday night. The bartender knows what I drink and orders up the best steamed mussels in town. Really hungry? Ask about the specials. They are always better than what's on the menu. Not just what the chef needed to unload. Want to stay awhile? Head out with your glass of Sauvignon Blanc... More

6 of us ate here tonight. We had all been to the restaurant before. The wine selection was good and the salad were good. The entrees fell far short. My chicken piccatta with a pasta side was not at all good. My husband's veal marsala with pasta was worse. Two of our friends ordered the pasta carbonara and said it... More

Having been the very first person ever to review this restaurant on TripAdvisor (I literally "put them on the map") and with this being my most favorite restaurant in my general area, my husband & I went here with friends to celebrate our 20th anniversary, but it was a near-disaster. As soon as we were seated & ordering drinks, the... More

Very average Italian food and little ambiance. Servers did not seem to care. Disappointing as we were told this place was "good Italian"

La Trattoria Tuscany has always been one of our family's favorite. However, we've noticed lately that it seems to be going downhill. Yesterday we visited for an early dinner around 4:15PM. Only one other customer was in the restaurant. We walked in and requested a booth. Our hostess led us by at least 4-6 empty booths that were filthy and... More

My colleague asked if a dish was spicy, and was told it wasn't. It turned out to be very spicy and the dish was inedible. The waitress still charged for it, and it was only when threatened to have a manager come over, did she remove it from the bill. The minestrone soup tasted canned. Bland, with no herbs or... More

Most everything in the Woodlands is premade junk. This place stands out as one of the best foodie stops in the world! Everything is made with heart!

I visited La Trattoria Tuscano for my birthday yesterday. It was fantastic and the service was pretty good as well. We ordered a bottle of the Moscato Di Aste (Taste amazing, but was overpriced compared to what we pay for it in the store). Next, we tried the calamari, meatballs and crab fingers for appetizers. My favorite was the meatballs!... More
