VERY authentic Italian cuisine and drinks, atmosphere, etc. We had an extremely great value of fluffy house salad, bread & EVOO, and pasta meal for $10 for lunch!! Really easy parking for a change - they have their own lot - hard to come by in downtown Raleigh. I'm coming back for a romantic dinner with hubby! Owners there and... More

Friendly, warmly atmospheric, and some of the best, authentic Italian food we have ever eaten. Also, the menu is very reasonably priced. I can't wait for our return dining experience.

The atmosphere is wonderful, and the food is authentic and really delicious! In fact, the putanesca sauce was the best sauce my husband and I have ever eaten -- sorry mom. Also, the portabello ravioli are excellent. When visiting Raleigh (which we plan to do often), the Tuscan Blu will be our first choice for lunch or dinner, and the... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at the bar. We were welcomed by the owner, a true Italian gentleman from Livorno, Italy. The seafood dish was outstanding. Great location in the warehouse district, with outside dining in warm weather.

Our Italian family went here for the first time on Saturday and had a spectacular time. Every dish was delicious, the service was great, and the house chianti was quite good. I can't believe it took us so long to try this place. We will be back!

My review echoes what many others say... the service is so bad that you feel uncomfortable. Food was so-so, which is a shame because the atmosphere is great. Go to Caffe Luna instead if you want quality Italian food, good service and nice atmosphere.
