Only ever eaten there for jazz Wednesdays in the outdoor tent and it?s been great. Good food and great music with a friendly bar staff. Went yesterday and the jazz had been canceled due to heat. Understandable, but there was nothing indicating it was canceled prior to arriving. We decided we?d try eating in the restaurant, but they said the wait was 45 minutes unless we?d like to sit on the patio. We opted to sit on the patio rather than wait. We were the only ones out there. The hostess sat us and said a server would be over shortly. We waited about 20 minutes and no one had even brought us waters, greeted us or taken a drink order. So we decided we?d been forgotten about and left. I?d go back for jazz nights, but probably won?t try eating in the restaurant again. Also this is just me being extra, but the restaurant was way too cold. I get that it was hot outside but it was so cold you would have needed a sweater to sit inside. Also the inside of the restaurant has that old fryer oil smell which is a bit off putting.
My wife and I ate dinner at Tuscan Kitchen. The service was excellent, attentive, but not hovering. The food was somewhat disappointing. I ordered the Salmone Alla Griglia with my salmon cooked medium rather than TK's typical medium rare. It arrived perfectly cooked to medium. Other than that there was nothing special about it. My roasted sweet potatoes were overdone bags of mush and the asparagus was completely limp and had a few pieces that had not been properly trimmed of their fibrous bottom parts. Asparagus is such a delicate vegetable, it needs very little time on the grill to cook. I also ordered the calamari appetizer. It was excellent and some of the best I have eaten. It was lightly breaded, perfectly prepared, and tasted as if it was fresh from the sea. A black coffee after my meal was full bodied and delicious. Also excellent! My wife ordered the Caesar Salad with shrimp which she enjoyed. Her shrimp were lightly cooked, tender and delicious. She also enjoyed caramel brulee dessert. So why only 3 stars? For one, the over cooked vegetables with my Salmon. I also thought the wine prices were a bit overpriced for wine that was good, but not special. They are easily $2 to $4 over what other restaurants charge for the same quality of wine. Lastly, the bathrooms were terrible. The trash was overflowing onto the floor in the mens room and my wife described the ladies room as "disgusting". They were obviously not getting the attention they needed for a three dollar sign rated restaurant. I do not enjoy giving TK only 3 stars. We sat at the pasta bar and watched the hard working appetizer chefs making Burrata Casa and other plates, straining the mozzarello curds and creating the cheese burrata by hand. They are artists! And the grill manager was on top of the orders making certain food went out hot to the diners. But sometimes the managers and chefs need to eat some of the food they are preparing to check the flavors and textures to make certain that what they are preparing is good enough to serve in the dining room.
Went there for our anniversary and had a wonderful dinner. Hubby got filet mignon and it was a generous size and cooked to perfection. I got the lobster ravioli and it was amazing. We started with the mozzarella and it was so fresh and delicious! I got the cheesecake for dessert and it was scrumptious. Hubby got the tiramisu and let me try a bite, if I wasn't stuffed I would have stolen it from him, it was so good! Our server Hailey was attentive and friendly and made great suggestions for our cocktails, which were also stellar. It was expensive (for us) but worth every penny, it was the best dinner out for us in a long time.
Came to Tuscan kitchen on a Sunday night for a late dinner. We were unfortunately those people who showed up at 8:37pm when they closed at 9 but they still sat us at a high top in the bar area. Table was comfy, restaurant was empty, TVs on with the celts game playing. There?s outdoor seating. The bathrooms are a trip down the stairs and a hallway. Put out order in quickly because we knew what we wanted. Onion bread and olive oil came to the table while we waited for our meals. I got the Toscana salad no ricotta, can?t wait until I can eat cheese again because it would definitely compliment this salad. I also got a side of brown butter sage sweet potato, amazing!
6 pieces of ravioli that doesn't fill a plate with no side. Bread was still partially frozen and dry with plain oil barely any flavor. Way over priced for the food here. Atmosphere was all they had going for them. Will not eat here again.
I've been here a few times and always enjoy the experience! The food and service are phenomenal and sometimes they even have live music. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area.
Absolutely one of the best restaurants in NE!! Coming here is for special occasions. 1-2 times a year. Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? 150%!!! The quality is TOP, the atmosphere is TOP, the staff is TOP. Would you like a $14 cocktail that's the size of your face? Yes please! The value & quality you get from the price is the best I've had, period. I'm smiling ear to ear all the way back home. I've visited Tuscan for about 8+ years now. They have not skipped a beat! You need to go and you'll always come back.
Cute atmosphere. Cute date night spot. The food is just okay. There's nothing that stands out unfortunately. I am 100% Italian first generation and the flavors unfortunately miss for me. The desserts do not taste authentic. Very small portions, prices are a bit high. Staff is very friendly
