Worst

Very over-rated. The food was ok but at those prices. I will take Valentino's food, service and ambience over this place anytime.

don't go rude expensive and food is just OK, look around you 1/31/2010

we have been there twice the 1st time we came late at night as they were about to close so we thought the rudeness was due to the face that they wanted to go home, so we came in again about 6 months later at arond 6pm they were so rude and treated us like crap the waiter ignoring us we had to order from the cooks, they sat us down at the bar ( there were at least 6 tables open) and just made you feel like they are doing you a favor by talking to you. for the price the charge the food is just OK the place is loud, stinky, expensive and not worth it we are not coming back again, and would not recommend this place to anyone we know , this is the worst place to go to, there are so many great places all around with much better food and much better customer service and for much less Pros: none, if you like being treated like crap & paying for it :) Cons: RUDE RUDE rude, expensive, food is just OK more

Worth the wait 3/15/2009

Visited this restaurant on a Friday. We were on time for an 830p reservation, but weren't seated until closer to 930p. The host, who I can only assume was the owner because of his warm welcomes whenever a regular would show up, was very nice and apologized more than once for the long wait. We were given glasses of wine to tide us over and it was definitely worth the wait. I had their sea bass special and my fiance had their seafood spaghetti special. Both meals were delicious and very flavorful; definitely recommend both. Our server, Savorani, was a very cool guy; very attentive and super friendly. I will definitely go back to this restaurant again. Pros: Free fresh raw veggie appetizer, friendly attentive service Cons: Long wait even with a reservation more

Why when you can go across the street? 9/23/2008

Mediocre food, exorbitant prices, Tracey Ullman at the table next to me. If I cared about celeb sighting, this would be the place to do it, but man, why eat there when there are so many other, tastier, options in the area for less money? more

Not impressed 6/2/2008

I would agree with the previous review from 5/14/08. It is difficult to have any type of conversation at this place. The tables are too close together and the waiters and busboys were constantly bumping our table and invading our personal space. The waiter was a bit rude like we should be honored to have him serving us. There is obviously a regular crowd here that the staff focuses on and the others patrons are not as important and they let you know it. Too small, cramped, and loud. The food was actually pretty good though. I had the pomodoro spinach and ricotta ravioli and my guest had the rac of lamb. Both dishes were good but the wine was just average. I was not impressed with thier wine by the glass. Also, they don't have a bar to sit at while waiting for your entire party; instead you kind of stand outside in the lobby area of the office building the restaurant is located in and watch other people eat. It's a bit degrading. more

food very mediocre. prices too high for the quality of food. seating too close to others. too loud. 5/14/2008

I found that the food is very common and not matching the price. The ambiance is cramped and loud. The waiters are overly helpful and have a slightly snobby attitude. If you want a gormet romantic dinner or an eclectic special menu you have chosen the wrong restaurant. It's very loud and hectic not a restaurant to unwind and relax with a glass of wine and dine on wonderful food. Pros: service? Cons: Flavor, ambience, parking, more

great food, and friendly 10/8/2007

Food is the bomb!!!!\r Softshell crab marinara...the best! The staff is friendly and service is impeccable. Great wine list as well. Not seen a celeb. yet, but who cares...the food is the celeb here! Pros: a bit pricey, but worth all of it!!!!! Cons: parking more

Good service and......nothing more 9/3/2007

This place is a little over-rated and way over-priced. The atmosphere and food here are not worth spending the benjamins. The food was bland and the the restaurant was too loud. Not one of the desserts were good. I'd never go back. Pros: service Cons: entrees, desserts, and too loud more

Toscana is as great as ever!! 2/20/2007

Don't be influenced by the previous review. The food, ambiance and staff are completely unchanged, although the former chef has gone to Caffe Roma This restaurant was never chef-driven. The service continues to be welcoming; the food fresh and beautifully seasoned. Have never had a bad meal at Toscana. Not inexpensive, but prices seem fair, given the location. Ingredients are of the highest quality. Try a whole fish grilled and then put in the wood-burning oven. Simply wonderful!! Simply lovely staff.. makes you feel like family. Closest thing there is to a Tuscan Trattoria. Love it!! Pros: good food, atmosphere and very friendly Cons: Noise level more

It is not Toscana anymore!! 2/15/2007

I used to dine there several times a week: with the new management the place has simply lost all of its charm! I also recently learned that the head Chef has left to open his own restaurant...\r No wonder the food is not the same anymore.\r And what about those desserts out on the counter all night long:\r people can sneeze on it and who knows what else...\r I will never go back! more

reasonably-priced, great food in a relaxed atmosphere 9/19/2006

My family and I have been going to Toscana forever. They wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Great location--in Brentwood you can hang out in a nice area without all the meritless snottiness of Beverly Hills. Food is authentic Italian-not the overly garlic, heavy on the sauce American stuff most are used to. The restaurant is casual nice. Not too expensive if you don't order alcoholic beverages. Pros: great, authentic food, nice staff Cons: none! more

Very average for the price 12/2/2005

Food is somewhat average - lacks flavor, and character for the price. Wait staff and hosts are friendly and helpful. Pros: Service, Viewable kitchen Cons: Uniqueness, Location, Valet for Italian? more

Good! 9/3/2003

Where have I been looking when I wanted to find a good Italian restaurant? Will def. be back. Good food, good service...do you need more? more

Mi Piace ""Toscana"" 4/28/2003

If you love Italy and are anxious for a taste of ""La Bella Vita,"" I highly reccommend ""Toscana."" The authentic thin-crust pizza is the closest I've discovered to the real thing. Even their simple plate of spaghetti marinara is cooked to ""adante"" perfection. Pros: Real Italian food, Great wine selection, Friendly service Cons: Expensive, Crowded, Noisy more

The waiter actually thanked us 9/3/2002

So many times, you go to pricey places that leave you shaking your head in disappointment for days. This place is a definite exception. Some of the best service I have received in LA. The waiter was informed, attentive and truly cared about our experience. It was pricey -- but as close to worth it as any place in this area comes. I would make only one suggestion -- steer clear of the veal milanse. This tasted like a large, breaded, flattened piece of veal with lemon squeezed over it -- and nothing more. But there are few places where I can say I didn't care for my entree, but I will definitely be back. Pros: best service around, something of a scene more

Great experience 8/28/2002

Crudités makes for a fun visual and gets you in the mood to eat! They have great food and service. It's a good place for a date. more
