Always excellent! Consistently great food and service.
Food is the best Italian food in Queens which is where I live. I am a foodie meaning I like good delicious mouth watering food and it's here in Il Toscano.
Fine food and dining in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
We have dined at Il Toscano for years. Sunday's dinner, however, was a total disappointment in every way.
THE STAFF WAS RUDE. When I asked if the AC could be turned down "a bit", because a breeze was blowing on me, I was told the AC was not on, but the front door had to remain open due to Covid restrictions. When I inquired if the table across the room, in a corner, was available, I was told, "No, that table is reserved for 6. Would you like a blanket?" In another comment, I was asked, "Would you like to see us closed down like the restaurant up the road?"(BTW, that particular table was not occupied that night.)
SERVICE WAS POORLY LACKING. No one approached us to ask if we would like a beverage and when our waitress came to take our order, she said, "I think you heard me tell the next table tonight's specials". Although pasta was ordered, it was not followed by an offering of Parmesan cheese, as is customary.
THE FOOD TASTED LIKE LEFT-OVERS FROM SATURDAY NIGHT. The bread was stale, Our salads were unrecognizable. My shrimp were hard and did not taste fresh.
We have not frequented restaurants often during the past year and were looking forward to our dinner at Il Toscano with great joy and anticipation. It seems, however, that Il Toscano is a out of practice and needs to bring their "game" back to their past glory. However, for us, we will wait a while. Sunday dinner was disappointing.
I’m going do this restaurant For more than 20 years.Very friendly ambience the food is excellent advice you to have special lobster any pasta all of them delicious and fantastic dessert you’re going to have a great time enjoy
Pre-mother’s day dinner was delicious! Comfortable outdoor setup;covered & heated. Wait staff was excellent!
Delicious food, very nice service. They have a fun outdoor tent too which was very comfortable. We’ll definitely return!
My experience at Il toscano was absolutely charming! From the food to the service :)
My absolute favorite restaurant. Love, love the food which is consistently great.
My favorite is the lobster, the semolina crusted jumbo shrimp, lasagna bolognese, ribeye steak OMG, practically everything. And desert is the Napolian. My mouth is watering just writing this.
Always great. Staff and owner are extremely warm and friendly. Old school Italian meal that can't be beat.
Fantastic food & excellent service made us feel welcome.
We ate "outside" in the structure they had constructed. There was heat and it was open as well. The food and the service were wonderful.
Love the food . Always delicious. They have a great menu and delicious specials. So fresh and homemade. Excellent service. The best outside dining experience. Beautiful patio. A must try!
Our first night out since the pandemic. Great wine and cocktails, lobster bisque and pasta with lamb rags. Lobster ravioli and Chicken Scarpariello followed by the BEST Napolean,
Wonderful! Celebrating my birthday with my beautiful lady and a beautiful dinner !
Amazing ambiance. Food and service were exceptional

Highly recommended. The food is fresh and delicious
great neighborhood Italian restaurant with consistently good food with generous portions. Best Foie Gras and Napoleons
They have the most elaborate outdoor seating that I have been to yet. wood floors, fans, heater, thermostatically controlled. despite having a reservation we had to wait almost 30 min for a table. as we wanted to sit outside we had to wait outside. Both the owner and the waiter said it would be a few minutes, it was 28. there was no apology offered. I never understand how a good businessman doesn't appease customers with a bit of goodwill like a drink, or dessert, etc. It basically costs close to nothing but shows customers that they care that customers were put out by the extended wait. Goodwill does much to show, in any business, that the customers are appreciated.
Everything was perfect
Excellent Service, delicious drinks and food amazing!
You can always rely on having a great meal at Il Toscano
The food is ALWAYS amazing. Whether for a special occasion, or a Friday after a long week, it’s really such a great restaurant. Incredibly consistent and yummy
They need to stop that main door from slamming each time a waiter exits to serve the customers outdoors. After a while, that’s all I could hear.
Always a favorite!
Perfect seating delicious food excellent service. Another perfect dining experience at Il Toscano
Always consistent. Fantastic meal. One of our favorites
The lobster was delicious and did not disappoint.
The duck special was the best I’ve had. Perfectly cooked and flavorful
Celebrating the return of indoor dining in NYC! Our evening could not have been more perfect. Great service, beautiful ambiance and of course, consistently exceptional food! It reminded us of what we missed all those months of lockdown!
One of my favorite places ever! ALWAYS an amazing meal! The entire staff is incredible! Simply the best!!!!!!!
Always consistent and the food is so well done. I hesitate to go elsewhere.
We had a wonderful time! Great atmosphere, wonderful service and delicious food. Will definitely be back
Best Napoleon ever
Loved the old school ambiance of the place, both the decor and the service. We ordered a burrata salad special appetizer, the semolina crusted shrimp entree, the veal milanese entree special, and tartufo for dessert. The burrata was very cold, and not creamy, and somewhat flavorless. The shrimp dish was excellent, lightly dusted and fried and served over a well made risotto. The veal milanese was a giant portion, the cutlets thin and perfectly fried. The salad on top was a mix of arugula, endive and radicchio. It needed a little more dressing, it was a bit dry and the salad mix was a bit bland. The dessert selection was disappointing. For us to pick a tartufo is a last resort. It was rock solid, obviously not made on site. I don't know how long this place has been in business, maybe their chef is a bit lazy, or perhaps they are just suffering from this pandemic. Fresher ingredients, a little more pizazz and homemade desserts would make this a solid winner for me. Again, service was excellent.
Great experience, Nice people, great vibe
