Lobster IL Toscano

Roasted Garlic Aioli
After 35 years of going there, it continues to be consistently terrific. Food always delicious, service always great.
We went there because the food is outstanding. Every dish on the menu is delicious. They are known for their special lobster dish and their lasagna bolognese. Which of course we ordered. I ordered the salmon special which came with quinoa and vegetables. It was delicious. Another special was the appetizer zucchini flowers, lightly fried filled with vegetables and Ricotta. Also excellent.
Dessert didn’t disappoint. The usual Napoleon, which walked past us to every table all night, and a special pecan chocolate Carmel tart which was incredible.
Topped off by Excellent service and a Covid safe envious and you have yourself a winner every time
First time here ..there was a prefixed menu for the holiday & everything I ordered was great ..Will definitely be back for the lobster pasta special everyone keeps posting about . crowd was older and place was pretty quiet but it was super cute & cozy.
Thanksgiving day 2021 was my second time at Il Toscano - the first time was for Easter 2021. Both times the experience was excellent. For Easter my brother and I ate in the enclosed outdoor dining area set up outside the front entrance, which was comfortable and functional. For Thanksgiving we were indoors in the restaurant itself, which did provide a more distinctive and colorful ambience. It was late afternoon and we were seated in a quiet corner which got only minimally noisier as the tables nearby filled up. The food was delicious - I had the rack of lamb, with the fried calamari appetizer (a good-sized portion) and a side of stuffing. The service was wonderful and the whole experience was very relaxing an enjoyable.
Only negative is that menu is limited
Should have a few more offerings
Also, Sunday Family Dinner should be removed from Open Table website, since no longer offered
Always the best food!
We haven't been to Il Toscano in ages and took my cousin out for her 60th last night. It was perfect, perfect, perfect!!! We had a terrific time, the food was amazing and the service was fabulous. Can't wait to go back!
My Dad and I had a great time! The calamari was perfect and the side sauce was a nice change from typical marinara. We went with two of the pasta specials; both were tasted great and the portion size was great. Desert was a delicious hazelnut tort. Our server, Meghan, was friendly and attentive.
This is by far one of our favorite places to eat, the food is phenomenal and so is the service……Alex is always accommodating and we enjoyed our dinner last night above and beyond…..we as always will be back thank you 🙏🙏
Excellent food and service. Always consistent and never disappointing.
I ordered the Lasagna based on the web page reviews, expecting it would be "The Best I ever tasted". Sorry to say it was not even close. It came out over cooked and so filled with tasteless chopped meat, I thought it was a meatloaf in disguise. So sorry to report this disappointment, but maybe the owner should sample what his kitchen is preparing.
Great food, great service. Everything perfect.
Best lobster dish in my recent memory
It’s always my favorite place. The food is superb and they really care about the customer. They have the best lobster in garlic sauce. Enjoy!
Cosistently excellent Italian cuisine in this neighborhood gem
Always an EXCEPTIONAL meal! The staff, entrees, wines, and desserts
are always incredible!
Fabulous dinner and service as usual.
Food is delicious as always.
Awesome restaurant, have been going for decades and never disappoints.
We’ve been coming here for years but not since Covid. Have taken out a few times but tonight we dined in and it was spectacular. The lobster special is always a treat. No one comes close
My favorite restaurant! Delicious food. Always love the specials. Excellent service. They have amazing outdoor dining as well.
I haven’t been in years but was recently told by a friend that it was really good. I was taken about 20 minutes after my reservation time so we didn’t start out good. We sat outside, they have made a very nice area in front of the restaurant for outdoor dining. Water and bread came promptly. The device was very good. I ordered an off menu special of chicken scarpariello, I wan not impressed, there were no garlic, lemon or rosemary flavors. All traditional scarp flavors. I had one small slice of a potato and 3 what looked like breakfast sausage links. This was a miss. My wife had the branzino filet which was prepared very well. Some mixed vegetables under two filets. I had a glass of wine and a Caesar salad. $114.00 with tip. I found it to be a little on the high side for this level of food preparation.
Still, the service was good and the menu varied with many daily specials. I do recommend the restaurant, just not the chicken scarp.
Was once a special place now quite ordinary . Outside is nice. However put us in a very busy spot by the door said nothing else was available , so were heard everything. Within 15 minutes 2 separate sets of people who walked up without reservations were given better tables .
Love it here will always return
The linguine vongole was not what I expected as there was sand in the clam meats. The pasta should be a garlic, lemon and white wine base but it did not taste like that. I am not sure what vegetables were added to the pasta but it did not complement the dish at all. I was very disappointed with this dish as I had higher expectation for it.
I’ve been coming for 30 years since i was a child with my family . There is a reason it’s still a fave.. the food, the staff and quality all around
It was a fabulous meal! Great service! Delicious food! A truly beautiful dining experience! We can’t wait to go back !🎉
Food is amazing! I had the branzino filets!!! Mouth watering!!
I keep coming back
Real Tuscan cuisine
Always great food
Sam greeted us warmly and chose a beautiful table for our anniversary supper. The food was among the best meals we've ever eaten. Bridget explained all the options patiently and clearly, Ramiro was attentive without interrupting. Excellent all around and delicious food.
Awesome experience, especially for a birthday

The hostess, was warm, friendly and amazing. She is an excellent asset to an already amazing restaurant.
Keep up the good work!
Dine 4-5 times year and always get a great meal. In addition to menu rher are specials. Staff very friendly yet professional. Never had a bad meal. Or experience. Suggest reservations
We are blown away by the kindness and hospitality. But especially the amazing food. You must get the mozzarella. Definitely out of this world! Outdoors is beautiful!
We ate outside on a very hot evening. The food was excellent, service great, and always interesting specials. The zucchini flowers were fabulous. With the heat and the zucchini flowers , I might have felt like we were in Italy, except for the annoying train noise. It was some kind of slow moving maintenance train that ruined the ambiance. Otherwise, dinner was excellent
Amazing food and service!
