From the warm greeting at the door to the sincere show of concern by the head waiter, our evening was wonderful from beginning to end. The selection of wines by the glass was top shelf, which enabled us to avoid purchasing a full bottle to get a quality wine. The servers were attentive and professional. The food was delicious and...

I'll start with the food... I've been to Italy many times and this restaurant tastes just as good as the food I've had in Italy... there's definitely authenticity here. I had a pasta special for an appetizer and a fish special for my entree. The fish was very fresh I love that they leave the skin on... and it was... More

I have eaten here a few times in the past year - each time was because a physician client wanted to go to il Toscano so we accommodated. Prices are high for the area. The owner (the son - it is a father/son ownership situation) barely acknowledges me as he walks around even after I have been introduced many times... More

If you have an issue with claustrophobia do not go to this restaurant. It is close quarters from beginning to end. When you check in to the restaurant you have to slither past hordes of others to get to the receptionist. When seated the tables are so close together that you feel like you are dining with the entire restaurant.... More

My wife have been going every Valentines day for the past 17 years. It's a special to- go restaurant for family members. The owner and son are always warm and welcoming. Mostly Northern Italian so don't expect baked clams. The angry lobster is a staple as is the rack of lamb. The napoleon can't be topped and they are not... More

I had my son's baptism party in the upstairs room and the food and service was excellent. When inquiring about booking the party, Alex took care of us, asked what we were looking for and delivered. Everything we ordered from Antipasti, pasta and entrée choices of filet mignon, salmon, chicken were all delicious and the Napoleon cake was baked on... More
