We went after the woman's march. The restaurant was very crowded and that might have been reflected in the spotty service. The menu is traditional and focused on pasta. Prices are quite high and I didn't think it was worth the extra price. Also be forewarned if they call to reconfirmed a reservation and you don't call them back before... More

I go here every year with my family and it never disappoints. Even when the menu changes, they always have new dishes that are just as appetizing. Very friendly waiters and although it's a little pricey, is worth the money spent. If you're looking for an entree, i would recommend getting octopus if it is available, and if not then... More

We recently had a family dinner at Tosca's while touring DC. In a nutshell, we had excellent service, although our waiter tried to "upsell" us on our wine selection. He was knowledgable and helped with our selections including giving his favorites and helping us choose between options. The wine list is plentiful but expensive. The salads were excellent (Cesar and... More

Service was outstanding. $10 Valet parking in front was convenient and well priced. I had two glasses of wine....$18 per glass. Small pours. Get the bottle next time. I ordered a pasta for an appetizer.....they do 1/2 a pasta dish as an app for about 1/2 the price. It was terrific. My lamb was boring and overcooked. Nothing comes with... More

I had lunch at Tosca last week. The quality of service and the food was impeccable. I dined very simply and the quality of my pasta dish was excellent, as was the interesting dessert which seemed to be a combination of a tiramisu and zabaglione. Different and interesting, but it worked well. Good wine list with a reasonably extensive selection... More

We did the pre-theater menu. I got the cacio and pepe app, my wife got the mixed salad. We both got the squash tortelli entrée. The cacio and pepe needed lots of extra pepper and it was way too rich. The salad was nice. We liked the tortelli, except, once again, it was a bit rich. There is no reason... More

We'd been here before, and based on our latest experience, would enthusiastically come again. "Tosca", an up-market (therefore expensive) Restaurant, is on F Street NW, a very short walking distance from the "Metro Center" station on the excellent Metro System. The dull, modern exterior of this Restaurant is quite unimpressive, but things improve significantly once you get inside. We were... More

Attractive by the name and by a "typical menu its", that is all what this one can offer. High price, that is sure, and a medium quality that is also certain. This restaurant moved from the lower city side to the "high" street area , but has forgotten to move the quality as high as they moved the price list... More
