We had dinner at Ristorante Toscano this past Sunday. Very nice setting with very good customer service. When we were first seated, we were given a table next to a very large group of 16. The noise level was bad. I asked the hostess if she could move us to another table away from the noise. She moved us without... More

The staff here is friendly and attentive. We made a last minute impromptu decision to dine at Toscano. They took a reservation for a Saturday night 30 minutes before the requested time; very accommodating! Each dish that we ordered were just right and delicious. The pistachio gelato was delightful; the portion is individual portion, so each person should order their... More

Great leafy salad with various olives- fresh and plentiful. Perfect service. Water glasses always refilled. Gluten free spaghetti option. Who's who sort of clientele. Understandable - food and service is consistently reliable. Worth a stop followed by a stroll through this historic neighborhood. A window seat is always a plus on a pretty day.

A very popular place that requires call-in or OpenTable reservation. We were able to get a 5PM early Sunday dinner reservation. Other open dining slots seem to be for late evening. Friday and Saturday require must prior reservations. We were not disappointed in our choice. We received a warm greeting and prompt seating at a table in the back of... More

Ordered 5 items and loved almost everything that I ate, except the seafood stew. The French seem to have perfect it with the bouillabaisse. House focaccia was slightly dry and hard for me. Nonetheless, very solid execution and knowledgeable bartender made the dining experience very memorable. Highly recommend!

Lovely, authentic Italian cuisine. Not too pricey. Service a tad slow but the food was worth the wait. Three starters, three mains, one dessert, two coffees, plus two glasses of prosecco and two glasses of Pinot Noir €170.
