We are hoping that more people realize what a find this restaurant is. Not because we don't enjoy the attention and service we received, but because we hope that business picks up for the very deserving owner/chef. We have become regulars.

The food and service are always top notch. I am concerned about the terrible condition of the front steps. I always picture someone tripping on them and getting hurt before they have the pleasure of eating Toscano's fine food.

The special ravioli was frozen and just drowned in a bland sauce. NOT worth $20+. My father's lasagna hardly had any cheese. Very disappointed.

Chef John makes the absolute best pasta in red sauce! Tonight I had 4 cheese purses in red sauce and they were outstanding, as always. His salads are creative and delicious—often farm to table. Great dinner choice!

We had a wonderful dinner, when we arrived we met the owner, John, we related a story to him about another customer, the reason we came since we live out of the area. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful and he came by several times to discuss the meal choices with us. It was a delightful dinner.

Was a random find on Yelp as I am not from the area. Overall was very pleased. Authentic. Had some unusual food pairings for specials that were very delicious. A little cramped for space but didn’t mind. Kudos to our server who memorized a novel worth of specials. A man played the piano the entire night. Was quite lovely.

Everything about the dinner was first class and prepared hot and nicely presented. The waitress was so helpful and knew her menu completely. She was also very helpful in packaging our left overs so that they would not leak on our way home. It is a very pleasant place to enjoy a great dinner.

The food is absolutely amazing authentic Italian. The chef is fabulous. On my most recent visit, I mentioned wanting lobster or crab ravioli and even though it wasn’t on the menu, he prepared it for me. It was excellent. The service is great, as well. They often have piano players during dinner. Lovely place for dinner or lunch.

Food was very good. No liquor license so no drinks with the good food. Too bad. Outside not marked well so a little tough to find.

Food is great and the waitress was excellent, very attentive without being annoying. Prices are reasonable. Could absolutely do without the organ player. It is too small a venue for that but will definitely be going back.

Took my girlfriend here for our 5 year anniversary dinner. Was surprised to see it completely empty, but the place looked nice and I had read the reviews saying the food was good and just assumed it was a slow night. Service was good, but being the only two people in the restaurant that's to be expected.

The food was possibly the worst I've ever had at a restaurant. It tasted like it had been sitting in the freezer uncovered for months. Both sets of pasta had clearly been cooked in the same pot, as both of our dishes had some of the other's pasta in it.

If it was busy, this might be understandable, but we were the only people there for the duration of our meal. The pasta and sauce were both flavorless, I could only finish half before giving up and did not take the rest home with me.

Not sure where all these good reviews are coming from. Certainly will not be returning and would not recommend it.
