    It was amazing! I love this place so much. Their oysters are a must have and I love their pasta dishes. One thing I will say is that I had their Chicken Nocci and it was a little dry and tough. Other than that I give them a 5 star for everything! Definitely a must try place, I will 100% be back soon for more.

    Excellent food, well prepared, flavourful and in the right amount. Service was quick, professional and friendly. Ambience was good - nice lighting although tables were a little closer than I would prefer. Music was a bit loud at first but liked the quieter selections that came on later.

    The ambiance and lighting, decor and set up were nice. Our table for 10 was set up prior to our arrival. We arrived 18 minutes late due to weather and parking. We were told we must complete meal within 100 minutes (given our late arrival). The table was only available till a certain hour. We agreed - stating it all depended on the speeediness of their kitchen as well. Since we arrived a bit earlier than the usual dinner hour, perhaps they were not staffed up sufficiently. Here are some comments of our group of 10: - insufficient attention given to our table, even though we were one of only few in the restaurant. No checks on water levels, long wait for bread, - most felt the food was ‘okay’ not great (pasta dishes, pizza, salmon dishes). Also the quantity was insufficient and unsatisfactory. - The fish soup, however, was plentiful and delicious. Though it would have been nice to have bread to go with it. - No dessert menu was offered. Though we still had 20 minutes available before our time ran out. We asked, some were rattled off, we selected a couple, seemingly much to the dismay of the staff. - Payment at the end was efficient.

    We used the reviews from previous guests who had attended and used their feedback to make a decision to book Tosca. We were very happy with the result. The food was so good and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our waiter was most attentive, but not to the point that it was overbearing. We had a fantastic time and the food and service was excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Was very good! Food was amazing, in good portion. The restaurant is beautiful. We went very early (5) because we had a group activity at 7pm, so the restaurant was almost empty, but service was great, and we all loved our experience.

    As usual, Tosca has provided a wonderful dining experience to help celebrate my birthday. The moment we arrive, Joe greeted us like family. Our booth is the 'special' one and we are attended to the moment we are seated. Gerry was our server last night and always remembers our preferences regarding wine selection. The meal was exquisite with a special surprise birthday cake to finish off the evening. I can't say enough about the food as it is prepared to perfection. We have never been disappointed. I urge everyone to make it their go-to place for any special occasion or even a non occasion because you will be spoiled 'a la Italiano' Ciao

    Food was ok, not as special as its talked about. Service was horrible. Our waiter seemed annoyed to be there. Table cleaner had to get him for us, he forgot our water, didn't refill, we had to wait 15 to get him to ask for dessert menu. Horrible

    My food was not hot when I received it and I found the flavour unremarkable. Other members of the party thought their main dishes were OK. Dessert was tasty. Our main waiter was not particularly friendly but the person who served our coffee and dessert was pleasant. Restaurant is nicely appointed. I won't be returning or recommending this spot.

    A lovely restaurant with great service and decent food. I thought it would be a good date night place but it’s more of a family type restaurant. Just if you wanted quiet ambience, that was a bit lacking.

    Good ambiance and a busy spot which is a good sign. Our group of 6 enjoyed our dinners and the service was very good. The other 5 had no complaints while I found the grilled calamari undercooked, despite the server bringing it back once however in the end it was tasty with a decent sauce. The linguine pescatore was very watery even after adding a fair bit of grated Reggio Parma cheese but also was tasty. The Menu on Open Table is very out of date, many items not available and the prices are 50% higher in many cases. Overall it was mid-range Italian, not the level of Giovanni's but also more affordable.
