Loved this place as a pre theatre venue - Tosca's was gorgeous for food and service! But then it changed its style - and as Casa Italia it is now soooooo different nowhere near as good as it had been in terms of service or quality of good ..... Such a shame ... Limp, tired salads, dried out pasta dishes,... More

Now Casa Italia, this is a "gourmet buffet" only plus meats/pizza brought to the table from a rotisserie. The quality of the ingredients - particularly the meat -seem very poor. The salad tired with dried up cold meats that had seen better days. The cream based pasta very cloying, tomato based pasta very dry. £16 a head for a very... More

If you went when it was Tosca's we think you will be disappointed with the revamp. Can only be classed as very average now. A buffet is a buffet and food dries out no matter how fresh it is when put out. Not much for vegetarians to choose from and very little pasta we assume because it does not "stand"... More

Went here for first time. Now under another name. Buffet style with pizza and other meats brought round at intervals. This was a Sunday evening hence they closed at 9pm. We were aware of this as at 7.30pm umbrellas from outside and dishes holding all salad items, pastas, were started to be cleared away while we were still eating. The... More

Our meal at Tosca's Ristorante Italiano was very good. Service was excellent and prompt. The restaurant is modern, bright and clean with a good view of the street and passers bye.

Really enjoyed the buffet style lunch....I always want a bit if everything on the menu, so this was perfect and I could help myself as many times as I liked. A really lovely selection of salads, cold meats and hot dishes on offer at the buffet, also enjoyed the little extras such as pizza and chicken wrapped in bacon that... More

The food is served buffet style and the meats are served by bringing skewers to your table where they slice off a portion. Many of the buffet items were good, particularly the cold dishes such as mozzarella and tomatoes with basil. The pastas on the buffet were awful. The pasta dishes are served from warming dishes and no pasta is... More

Have been before when it was the old style of ordering from the menu and although it was good, this new buffet style is superb, great choice of food and eat as much as you like with extras such as Pizza & chicken bought to the tables until you make it clear you don't want anymore. One of our party... More

This has now changed to a buffet style restaurant and you are brought pizzas and meat on a skewer. The buffet was good and had a fair selection but the meat on the skewers was dried out and hard and they were keen to push the pizzas rather than the meat. The roasted pineapple was only brought round once and... More

Tosca's certainly takes advantage of its setting near The Mayflower Theatre in Southampton, treating pre and post-show diners to a wonderful menu with theatrical flair. This is the place for a gorgeous array of pizza, pasta, steak and seafood dishes, whether seeing a show, enjoying a delicious meal out or simply looking to enjoy a drink in the wine bar. A part of The Italian Dining Group.
