We recently enjoyed a great meal at Osteria Tosca. We had pizzas although my wife and I shared a pizza and lovely salad. The service was really good and friendly - for once - and the Square by Puccini's birthplace is a lovely setting. We...More

Osteria Tosca came highly recommended. The location outside was beautiful and the Lucchese soup was tasty. The Sangiovese house wine was nice. Friendly service.

This little restaurant is right near Puccini's house. It is in such an important tourist area I wouldn't think of eating here, until I asked a local!!!! This is not a tourist restaurant at all, but a local place serving local food. (You can get...More

The square with the great Puccini statue has four restaurants and we reckon this is the best. Good tables overlooking the square, helpful service, local wine pleasant, and a very good meal. The very rare and very thinly sliced beef and cheese was exceptionally good....More

The food was very good. I tried the local soup and fried fish - it was too much! It was too cold to eat outside - the decor inside is a big bright but still nice. Very friendly staff.

We ate dinner at Osteria Tosca after a performance at the Puccini center (it is nearby) and were rather rudely shown a table and ignored for some time. However, the food was good and interesting, the wine (generic Sangiovese) was excellent and quite a bargain....More

We wandered into this place when a restaurant recommended by the guidebook was full. How lucky we were! Tuscan specialties recommended by the staff were excellent. The steak evoked a backyard BBQ in the best way, with perfect char, seasoning, and internal temperature. The potatoes...More

Excellent food and service. A variety of Italian dishes well prepared too. Tried several dishes in the number of times I have been there and it was always up to high standards. Charging the cover charge is old fashioned and cheeky though.

We stopped here as 5 years ago we had Carbonara that was AMAZING! They didn't offer it this time so I chose a risotto with broccoli and sausage. It was bland and boring. I was so disappointed!

Description
Located near the Puccini museum in a quiet plazza, off the busy streets. Excellent food, the best sea bream ever taste. All the dishes were well presented. Small restaurant with limited number of tables (6) for outside eating. The service was excellent. My steak was over cooked, they quickly took my plate and prepared me another steak which was delicious. Would definitely recommend this place to others and go again.
