Use to be one of my favorite restaurants, but my last visit, was very disappointing. I took out of town guests there and they were not impressed. My Calamari Dore was soggy. I think the size of the portions have gotten much smaller and the...More

There is another Italian restaurant literally around the corner. So of course we had to try them both. Really - they both are delicious and you can get a very filling meal at either. La Toscana is quieter but the service is not as quick....More

The restaurant was very busy, but within a short time they seated us, which was very nice since we didn't have reservations. Service was a bit slow, but the busser made up for it. He went the extra mile to help. The food was delicious...More

We were a bit reluctant to go to La Toscana because it has been around forever and usually those places are not very good. The bar was really nice, with comfortable seats and many tables for Happy Hour people! We had the meatballs and eggplant...More

La Toscana continues to serve some of the best Italian fare in Marin County. They have been a local staple for a long time, and continue to serve delicious food and drink. Veal scallopini is fantastic.
