I am from Boston and eat in the North End for Italian food. This place is a combination of Greek/Italian and man does it work!!! My wife had the salmon/shrimp kabob which was served over rice. She absolutely loved it. I had the “grilled chicken...parm” (grilled, did you see that?? Not fried then baked) served over pasta. The chicken is seasoned with a traditional Greek seasoning then served on top of the pasta which has been parmed. Very untraditional but man is it good. We both had salads which were fresh and crispy. Gabriel was our server, this man was not only friendly he was professional and quick, he was very attentive and refilled our drinks as they were getting low without asking. I do have 2 critiques for this place. Raise the price of chicken parm $2 and put just a little more chicken on it. The 2nd is for people like me that prefer to have cocktails with dinner to expand to a full bar. Otherwise this place is perfect!!More

My friend and I grabbed an early dinner after exploring Shelby. We were promptly seated and our waiter came quickly to get our drink orders. He returned with our drinks and I ordered the small super sub and my friend order with gyro platter with...grilled chicken. The small sub was HUGE. I can't imagine how big the large is. The small sub was enough for dinner and enough to take leftovers home. The food was very good and came out quickly.More

Nice location downtown across from the Earl Scruggs center. We ate outside because it was a nice day. The server was nice and very helpful. I got the Italian sub which was OK. The wife ordered the Moussaka, but they were out so she got...the Chicken Pasta instead. She did not like it and only ate a few bites. The server took it off the bill. We will try again next time with different menu items.More

Busy Friday night, but great booth seating for family of five. Good atmosphere, not too loud so conversation was easy. Decor was bright and appeared very clean. Wait staff was superb, friendly and attentive. Menu covers both Greek and Italian cuisine well, but with dishes...one would expect to see - good menu choices, but not as broad as they could be. A tad disappointed waiter didn't ask about dessert as we forgot to order baklava to go. I had combo lamb/chicken gyro with salad and was happy with it. Mom had pineapple pizza and was pleasantly surprised. Other family members finished their meals with no need for takeout boxes, so I'd say each meal was a hit. Beautiful location in town, right across from historic courthouse in a small town that obviously takes pride in itself. Would definitely return.More

Arrived in Shelby at lunchtime and wanted something to eat before we visited the Earl Scruggs Center. Friendly place that obviously needed more servers, but who doesn’t these days. I had expected the gyro platter to have freshly shaved lamb, but wound up with the...ubiquitous gyro slices that Costco sells. They were OK, but had I known, I wouldn’t have made the selection. The accompanying Greek salad was very good and the house dressing complemented it well.More

My Spanakopita was soggy and gooey with way too much ricotta, really unpalatable. Pasta dish had little sauce and lotsa cheese. Portions were large, prices were good, but I would not return

Stopped into Toscanos for a tranquil and relaxing late lunch on a Friday. We were greeted and seated immediately in the darkened and comfortable dining area and enjoyed the light instumental jazz playing from the sound system. Our waiter was prompt and got our drink...orders while we considered several very reasonably priced lunch specials as well as the full menu, which offered Greek and Italian dishes. We selected a ravioli and a chicken pasta alfredo entree; each was accompanied by a fresh chopped salad served with a cracker assortment. We chose the house dressing, an oil & vinegar with herbs that was very good. Entrees came out very quickly, very hot and were generously portioned. Flavor was excellent for both. Our server remained friendly and helpful, refills came without asking and his menu suggestions made for good choices. A cabernet sauvignon was a nice accent to the meal. Soft drinks were Coke products. A slice of red velvet cheesecake was a sweet and rich dessert. Total for the meal including the two entrees, soft drink, the wine and dessert (we split it) came out less than $40, an exceptional value. That included a fresh order of garlic toast, too. Toscanos represents an excellent dining chouce in Shelby; we consider it the best Greek/Italian in the area.More

Got a late dinner in and food and service was so fast. Great wine to go with the pizza and Greek salad. The place was very clean and saw how they really did it well with disinfecting. Such a cute little down town.

The food at Toscanos is amazing and so is the customer service! I highly recommend the Toscanos chicken pasta! We use Toscanos to cater events at the office quite often and they are always on time and prepared. If you need catering for a meeting...or event I would highly recommend them.More

We were in the area and looking for a good place to eat. Someone recommended Toscanos and I am so glad they did. We ate the meatball sub and the eggplant parm sub. Neither of us were disappointed. We ordered the kids Mac & Cheese...and it was a small portion so next time we will second guess that but it was on us and not the restaurant. We plan to drive the hour drive as often as possible to eat hear often.More

Toscanos is very good Italian restaurant on the square right across from the courthouse. Great service, great quality, great value. We’ve had lunch and dinner several times. Our favorites include the pastas: spaghetti, ravioli, and ziti; lasagna; and the Greek salads. The only item we...have yet to try is their pizza, but it looks great. Be sure to try their homemade dressing. Another option is hamburger Mondays when select options are offered. Limited seating outside in front is nice when the weather cooperates.More
