“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

Went for my wife's birthday and everything was first class. GREAT value for restaurant week. Ate every morsel that was brought to our table. Service was well orchestrated. Prices were reasonable even if not doing the restaurant week special. Not rushed,did not get the feeling they were trying to turn tables quickly. Waiter had exellent suggestions for our dining experience.

“Micky's Review”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

We went for dinner with family and were seated in the middle of the brightly lighted restaurant. I was initially surprised to see the restaurant quite packed with patrons in stuffy dinner jackets. Our server was informative and attentive, yet rubbed some of us the wrong way by not having two of our wine selections and then pushing a more expensive wine he picked onto us. read more http://whatmickyeats.blogspot.com/2010/04/ristorante-tosca.html

“Excellent Pre Theater value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

My wife and I had tickets to the 8 pm show at the Shakespeare theater. We made reservations for 5:30 pm at Tosca to take advantage of their pre theater (early) dining menu. We enjoyed an excellent and relaxed meal. Valet parking was only $5. After dinner we enjoyed a nice 4 block walk to the theater. After the show we came back to Tosca and had the valet retrieve our car. This has to be one of the best deals in DC. We'd do it again.

“Italian with classy ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

i've been to this restaurant at least 5 times, including our pre-nuptial evening dinner in their small party room (great decor including fireplace). This is not your suburban Italian restaurant as the food is gourmet and the atmosphere quite trendy. The wait service is great and valet service for your car is very useful as this is a downtown restaurant. We always like the food, especially the bread sticks. Good wine selection!!

“Exceptional dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2012

An exceptional dining experience from the moment we walked into the restaurant. I found this restaurant on trip advisor and on the recommendations i decided to book for new years eve. What an occasion is was. Everything and i mean everything was just brilliant - the food, the ambience, the service - our waiter so was knowledge. We had a brilliant evening.
The menu offered a great selection of food - something for everyone including vegetarian options. The wine list was extensive with both local & imported wines. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!!
