Italian

Il Toscano means “The Tuscan”, and is a perfect representation of everything I am, and all that I love about my home land in Italy.

My name’s Matteo – head pasta maker, chef and owner of il Toscano. I was born and raised in the countryside of Tuscany, and although I’ve now lived in Australia for over 9 years, my passion for all things Italian has never been stronger.

Nor has my passion for sharing it with Australia and the Central Coast. I noticed that while there are a lot of outlets serving Italian food up here, they’re largely not hitting the mark when it comes to quality, authenticity and traditional local Tuscan food.

Our mission is to bring people together for an amazing Italian experience with good food, wine and good times and share with you my strong passion and our local traditional cuisine as if you were in Tuscany.

    We have been to Il Toscanno in Terrigal a number of times and always amazing. This time we went to Long Jetty to get the Fiorentino Steak... and it was INCREDIBLE! The food, the staff, the service is all just amazing. Highly recommend to anyone and everyone. Love this place.

    First time visiting our new local Italian restaurant. It was busy for a Wednesday night and hence quite noisy. The restaurant offers predominantly pasta with some entrees available as well. The pasta is made in-house and was very tasty. The service was efficient and the staff were attentive. It’s a shame it’s not BYO as the individual glasses at an average of $13 were not cheap. We will definitely return and try the range of pastas and sauces on offer. A great new addition to our local restaurants.

    Wow! Pasta here is fantastic, delicious and authentic... Italian wine was beautiful... Sitting outside on the footpath is something I wouldn't do again as you are so close to the road which was very noisey and didn't give you the full experience of being at a lovely restaurant. I look forward to returning however sitting inside only.

    A few teething problems with food, one meal delivered and eaten before other arrived 20 minutes later. Food was tasty but overpriced, especially garlic bread at $16 for 4 small pieces of bruschetta with garlic oil. Not a lot of meat in meat pasta dishes either mostly cream and pasta. $16 for a small glass of wine also seemed excessive. Owners friendly and a nice cosy atmosphere although very noisy and hard to hear across the table. We may go back, skip the bread and wine but not in a hurry.

    We eat out at restaurants frequently and Toscano Long Jetty was expensive for the style of food with high priced wines, entree cold and average, main course seafood marinara was spot the seafood. The scauce and pasta good. This is a BYO location being a low economic area unlike Terrigal. The venue small and noisy.

    Il Toscano Long JettyResponded on 4 June 2022

    Hi John, thanks for your feedback, and sorry for the cold arancini. This is a pasta bar. We make fresh pasta everyday. The pasta is made with organic durum wheat four 100% and pasteurised egg yolk. We have a range of wine from $35 to $89 and they are all imported from Italy. Is there really high for a restaurant? I am sorry but when we buy our ingredients they don’t look of the areas. We love people who understand what we deliver… Thanks again 😊

    Friendly and attentive staff, great atmosphere, however food was a disappointment. Underwhelming flavours and the pasta was undercooked, which is a pity as they specialise in pasta dishes. We had such hopes being a new restaurant in Long Jetty.

    Il Toscano Long JettyResponded on 29 May 2022

    Hi Sue, thanks for your feedback. It is a shame you didn’t enjoy the pasta. However, as we make everything fresh and express, sometimes, it could happen the pasta doesn’t come out “al dente” and tasting as should be. In that case it would have been a pleasure to make a new one for you. Unfortunately we didn’t hear from you on the night. I am quite confident next time it will be much better. Our goal is to make you happy. Thanks again for your feedback. Ciao ciao 😊

    Il Toscano Long JettyResponded on 24 May 2022

    Hi jenny, Thanks for your beautiful feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your melas. I am sorry we have two items not available. However, this is s traditional Tuscan "trattoria" ( no classic restaurant) where we make our food fresh every day. It could happen sometimes we might run out some item because they have been sold quickly. All our wines and beers are imported, well selected and great quality. that's why the price is high. Thanks again
