The service was spot on... but I'm still dreaming of the mushroom pasta, the braised calamari, and the burr Ayala caprese salad. The food was outstanding and priced fairly.

Looking for a great place for Italian food and wine, Toscano's will satisfy the most discriminating diner. The pasta is mouth watering and not low calorie. Portions are appropriate. Wine listing is very good. Service by Jose' and his crew was impeccable. Desserts are wonderful....More

Wow! We had a great Tuscan wine, cheese and italian meat board that were amazing. The most pleasant surprise was our server Daniel. If you're lucky to have Daniel wait your table you won't be disappointed. Must go to restaurant, we all loved it.

If you can make it through the meal and have room, the Tiramisu is worth getting! Menu is very good for everyone one from food snobs to kids that just want pasta with white sauce.

Very nice Sunday Lunch during Boston Restaurant week. 3 courses for $20 can't be beat. Started with the classic Caesar salad with extra anchovies, main course of veal scallopini and finished with the Tiramisu. The Salmon also looked and tasted increasingly. Veal was good, but...More

Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking

Could we see the wine list please?
We will be arriving in Boston in early evening on Friday, May 1st, and wonder if we will be able to get a reservation for around 7 or 7:30 p.m?

It's too bad they are not a part of Open Table reservations. Call when you get into town. The North end is a close 15 minute walk from that area for more choices of Italian foods.
