Cafe Toscana is a great Italian restaurant located on the square in Wilkes-Barre. I've had dinner and lunch there a few times and for the most part the food has been great. The chicken Marsala is on of the few that is done to perfection. The only disappointment was in my last visit. I had the shrimp over pasta and... More

Patronized based on TA reviews. Cross country road trip with a stop in Wilkes Barre. Wife was sick with major symptom uncontrolled coughing. Thought it best not to visit restaurant, so ordered out. Excellent food. Would visit again for sit down meal to enjoy nice ambiance.

I travel to Italy frequently for business. The lemon butter veal (Vitello Piccata) is just as good as in upscale restaurants in Milano, Italy. The Lobster ravioli with vodka sauce was amazing. The flan was the best I've ever had. The cappuccino was nice. Large portion with thick creme. The service was excellent. Will go out of our way to... More

I arrived with a friend at 6:15 last night and we were waiting for two more. We had a show at 8pm to get to at the Kirby Center. Our friends were running late due to traffic - so at 6:45 we ordered our food, and then at 7 ordered theirs. They arrived shortly after we ordered and got their... More

We came here on a Friday night and the place was packed - we got the last table. However, most patrons had left by 7:30pm to go and see John Mellencamp at the Performing Arts Centre. We were impressed with the menu which carried a good range of pastas and entrees. But beware, the portions are very large and you... More

Have gone there several times for business lunches and was dissatisfied each time. Service was not the best and food was definitely not up to good standards. Won't go back for personal meals.

The food was delicious -- lots of great choices. I was pleasantly surprised at the portion size, the price and the service. My local pizza joint charges just as much for its pasta but lacks the ambiance and service. The service was outstanding -- the multiple waiters were attentive and we never felt rushed. I would absolutely eat there again... More

Had a good meal and reasonably priced. Portions are generous. Owners are from Sicily and provide a good selection of seafood dishes. Staff is courteous and knowledgeable.
