We usually visit Toscani a couple of times when we come to KK on our 6 monthly holiday trips. This time we found they have a new menu and reupholstered seating inside. The new menu has lovely photos so helps you to choose the best meals. Food as always very much to our taste, I had the lamb cutlets and... More

This is a decent little restaurant situated near the tourist market in KK. The interior is a little dingy but the terrace has great views of the bay and was busy when we visited. The service was good, friendly and efficient and the food was generally good, although one dish was missed off our order. The pizza was pretty authentic,... More

We visited Toscani Restaurant during Xmas. Food served still excellent. Too many people passing by & i feel uncomfortable. Reasonable price. The most important is seaview from the restaurant.

I ate here three times during my week-long stay in Kota Kinabalu. The seafood was great, the service friendly, and the setting beautiful.

We eat here on a number of occasions and get there early if you want to get one of the tables on the balcony for watching the sun set as it's extremely popular. The restaurant has an varied menu and a wide range of beers and wines (and an extended happy hour) The food was served quickly by friendly staff.

We always go to Toscani whenever we're in Kota Kinabalu and thoroughly enjoy the meals we have, unfortunately we usually only go for a starter salad and a main meal and miss out on desserts. Today we went for the tapas and had desserts. We now realise we've missed out greatly, I had the creme brule and my wife had... More
