pizzas are great, with a thin base. Sometimes employees have a slowly attendance to the costumer. Although, it is a restaurant you must try

I lived in Rome so I am quite critical with Italian food.... This is not a superb restaurant in my opinion, but deserves an average mark.

Dear Carolina, Appreciated your comment and review. I visit Italy regurlarly and just been in Rome and Naples this October. Of the many good things Italians do offer some we can easy import to Portugal, some others not. We also did not import the so fashionable Roman features such as, "pay per seat" , sides not included in price, children... More

I would say Toscana´s food could be defined as Italianese , a creative mix of Italian and Portuguese cuisine . Nice smells come from the kitchen as soon as you enter and the owners always make you feel welcome . The atmosphere is great , the staff is nice and gentle and personally I like the creativity of the owners... More

Toscana overall has an admittedly pleasant feel, however our last dinner there turned out to be somewhat disappointing. Their menu is quite ambitious with lots of pretentious (some may say inventive?) names. It manages to combine Italian pizzas with Portuguese 'bacalhau com natas', veal Zurichoise (!) and escalope Bismarck. Having decided to stick with the Italian food, we ordered the... More

Toscana has a "family restaurant" vibe. It lives up to the vibe, providing a cosy atmosphere for a meal with adequate prices. Its main theme is Italian cuisine, with an heavy focus on pizza and meat dishes, which are usually accompanied with fried polenta. The pizza is not overcrowded with ingredients and they have some classic selections available. In the... More

I'm sorry to say so, the atmosphere is great, and service is absolutely nice and gentle ..... but if you employ the term Pizza, to me, you enter a sacred semanticall area. That's not pizza, it's very simple... BUT ! If you're not italian, and you don't know what pizza is ... you might enjoy !

Definitely above average quality, the secret of this family run eatery is that they grow on their farm organically all vegetables served in the restaurant. The theme is italian cuisine but there are some other relevant additions like the extremely well achieved portuguese "bacalhau com natas". The pizza is baked in a wood oven and is as thin and crispy... More
