American | Harvard Square, Boston

Everyone very friendly. Three of us ordered 2 plates each. First plates arrived in a good time. 2 of 3 final plate arrived a bit longer than expected. Third plate took long time. Had to ask server status of third plate. Food was very good. More

Italian | Harvard Square, Boston

Mitch was amazing. My friend and I were having a farewell meal to celebrate her move to LA, and I made reservations at Toscano because I’ve always enjoyed the food and ambiance. We were greeted warmly by the hostess, and the food and ambience were excellent as usual, but Mitch took things to the next level w/his warmth, hospitality, and superb recommendations. I wouldn’t have had the tenderloin w/that truffle sauce if not for him—neither would I have known to try the flan for dessert. The magic happens off menu, and we appreciated Mitch bringing the magic—many thanks for a superlative meal! More

Indian | Harvard Square, Boston

We were craving for spicy Indian food and the chef did not disappoint us. We went there both for lunch buffet which was less spicy and for dinner where they really catered to our spicy buds. We had malai kofta, biryani, saag paneer, mango and salt lassi. More

Sunday brunch is always good, with enough variety of veggie and non-veggies options. Family atmosphere is nice and cozy. Good value for money. More

Seafood | Harvard Square, Boston

My wife and I like to make a meal of Legal's excellent starters. This time we had tuna sashimi, smoked salmon with brioche bread & steamed mussels, preceded by a margarita, accompanied by a glass of Sancerre and followed by pumpkin cheesecake & espresso. Altogether a very festive New Year's Eve dining experience. More
