We have eaten at Toscano a few times. We love the setting. We prefer to eat outside if we can get a table there. The osso bucco has been wonderful but the last time it was a bit salty. Don't know if the chef had a bad night or what. The mushroom risotto is excellent as well.

Slightly amazed by the fantastic reviews this restaurant gets. We visited on a Wednesday evening and were a party of six. The antipasti we shared was fine but nothing spectacular. We had five main courses (our children shared a pizza) and the pasta dishes were good and the children's pizza was fine. However my pizza quattro formaggi was massively overcooked and burnt on the outside and my wife's chicken in a parmesan crust was so overcooked that half of it was inedible.

The owner is super friendly and the waitress was very friendly but it wasn't really enough to compensate for the fact that this was probably the worst meal we have eaten in three weeks of travelling around Colombia, eating out three times a day.

Lots of places pass off as Italian here in medellin and although I wouldn't call this place a hub for Italian cuisine, Toscano in provenza is an amazing family-oriented Italian restaurant. The decor alone makes you feel like you're in Felice's home and his attentive staff provide a warm and welcoming ambiance. Now, the food: their ossobuco is the best I've ever had, their homemade pomodoro is the best I've had in medellin and their lunch menu is ridiculously affordable considering the high-quality items you can find (not to mention delicious). I have brought many friends to this place and all have nothing but great things to say about Felice and his restaurant.
