“Friendly”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Good food and a super friendly staff. Even if you have to sit next door, due to the crowd, they will still serve you food.

“Beautiful view and good food”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

We happened upon this place while walking through the waterfront area. Pizza sounded good so we gave it a try. Had pepperoni, marguerite, and turkey ham pizza. All good with a good tomato sauce flavor. Crust is very thin so not a super filling pizza but still good. Also had a Caesar salad which was delicious! Dressing was good without an overpowering of anchovies. Best part was the beautiful sunset!

“Nice place for a cold beer:)”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

On the waterfront of KK I have been here a few times over the last 7 years.
Friendly service and cold beer which is great considering it's a humid 31.

“Great place to chill out for the eve...”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

One among the string of restaurants on the KK seafront, toscani offers a decent menu of salads and soups and pizzas.The Chef/manager is quite a chatty guy. Being a vegetarian had a bit of a difficulty selecting the dishes and he was nice enough in suggesting options and explaining the ingredients of the various dishes. Overall, a relaxed place for a beer and dinner in the eve by the sea.

“Just another Italian place!”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

The WATERFRONT is a cluster of restaurants lining the seafront with seatings on the boardwalk and also indoors. The sad thing about the outdoor seatings, is that most of the restaurants erected canopies over the seating area thus preventing the sea breeze to flow through. The indoor is not any better with the air screens and ceiling fans blowing.
Toscani's is one of the many eateries here. Daily around the late afternoon the Waterfront comes to live, as workers set up their respective premises and the chefs start to prepare their special fare. By evening the whole place will be bustling with people looking for a great dinning experience from the many restaurants that lined here.

Western, Chinese, and local cuisines are can be found here, and the place is very popular with the tourists as everyone wanted the feel of dining here. Other than fine dining the Waterfront is also a great place for socialising and party, there are pubs, cafes, karaokes and THE BED is one of the biggest dance clubs in town.

The food is better than average Italian, but far from outstanding. A good choice for a change of fare, and much recommended by the locals.

We had to try it out as this outlet which was our second experience at The Waterfront ......we were tired of Asian cuisine and seafood after being in this city for almost a week! We thought it was a bit expensive, but being in a locality where tourists frequent..... you are in control of your choices!

It is located at Lot 14 The Waterfront, Kota Kinabalu and is only a walking distance about 10 to 15 mins from most of the city hotels, and just a stone throw away from Warisan Square and Centre Point Shopping Mall. Opening hours are from 11am to 11pm daily!
