My husband and I made reservations to meet our friends from Ottawa. We were greeted cordially and seated in the middle of the restaurant. It was quite comfortable and quiet. The food was excellent and hot and tasty. We have been here several times and would recommend it to any visitor to town.

We made a last-minute reservation and got an amazing private banquette. The food was great. The service started off well but our server became less attentive. Fortunately the staff worked as a team and others stepped in to help out. There was a wedding party which probably caused staff to be extra busy.

Had dinner on NYE and got there early enough to order off the full menu. Lots of variety, service very good and food was excellent. Looked like they were ready for a great party later that night as well - sorry we missed it. Great spot.

Tosca Restaurant in Ottawa is an Italian restaurant with great atmosphere. . We were seated in the corner booth with leather seats. Best seat in the house. . Great service, but the food was uninspired. . Overcooked cannelloni with an abundance of mediocre mozzarella. . We ordered the caprese salad, $15,should have been priced near $9.00 for the presentation and... More

We dined here for our group holiday lunch & were treated with a very extensive menu - not shorted for a group or the holidays - of pasta items. We had a variety of dishes- me the large chicken parmesan - and everyone was very satisfied with their filling meals. Each was served hot & not rushed - We were... More

The restaurant has a nice, cozy atmosphere and the service is very good. The food came very fast - this may be a good thing depending on what you want from the evening. The pasta was very good, but my husband was not impressed with his veal at all. The wine we ordered was okay, but nothing special. Overall a... More

Enjoyed the atmosphere and the starter bread and olives. Tried the diavolo calamari and was disappointed as it was very chewy and overcooked. The sauce was delicious but the calamari was too rubbery. I had the seafood risotto which tasted good and was a large portion but I don't know if I would have it again. My husband had the... More

We enjoyed our evening meal here. When we first arrived it was pretty quiet but it soon got busier and more atmospheric. The service was very good - when they didn't have the bottle of wine that I'd ordered, they volunteered a more expensive alternative at the same price as my original choice which was a nice touch. The food... More

They offer a small room in the back for 10-12 people far away from the restaurant noise. We were able to have a successful meeting. The food was average and the service was good. We were not interrupted many times, however, we also had to wait a fair bit to have our water refilled. I enjoyed my chicken Marsala, but... More
