We have eaten here several times when visiting Smith Mountain Lake. Reasonable prices for traditional Italian dishes and some nice seafood options. Wines by the bottle or glass. A great place to gather with friends after a day on the Lake. Kid friendly.

This was our third visit and once again we were not disappointed. We both had pasta dishes and the quality of each was excellent. Always fresh, hot and tasteful. Highly recommended.

We have ordered pizzas several times from Tuscan Tavern and have always been happy with them. This time we ordered 3 pizzas to go, and they were ready on time. This restaurant is near Halesford Bridge on the Bedford County side of the lake.
