I had dinner with my husband there; I wasn't sure it was that good since we both are Italians and we are very demanding when it gets to Italian restaurant. Both of us had "fiori di zucca" stuffed ( they were good as in Rome) and then "spaghetti alla chitarra" ( they were AMAZING! I had such a good home-made... More

Atmosphere, decor, service all perfect! But the food takes it to another level. Swordfish was perfect, pasta dish with lobster delicious, short rib ravioli amazing! For sure going again while in DC.

When you want Italian food that is not the usual Sicilian fare, Tosca provides the more northern approach to Italian cooking. Yes the pastas are are freshly made and have an elegance that you find in the more northern regions of Italy. Some people find this to be their favorite steak in the city. The veal chop is to die...

Tosca prepares the pasta in house. Taste is unique and service very good. Decoration is very simple.

We went after the woman's march. The restaurant was very crowded and that might have been reflected in the spotty service. The menu is traditional and focused on pasta. Prices are quite high and I didn't think it was worth the extra price. Also be forewarned if they call to reconfirmed a reservation and you don't call them back before... More

I go here every year with my family and it never disappoints. Even when the menu changes, they always have new dishes that are just as appetizing. Very friendly waiters and although it's a little pricey, is worth the money spent. If you're looking for an entree, i would recommend getting octopus if it is available, and if not then... More

We recently had a family dinner at Tosca's while touring DC. In a nutshell, we had excellent service, although our waiter tried to "upsell" us on our wine selection. He was knowledgable and helped with our selections including giving his favorites and helping us choose between options. The wine list is plentiful but expensive. The salads were excellent (Cesar and... More

Service was outstanding. $10 Valet parking in front was convenient and well priced. I had two glasses of wine....$18 per glass. Small pours. Get the bottle next time. I ordered a pasta for an appetizer.....they do 1/2 a pasta dish as an app for about 1/2 the price. It was terrific. My lamb was boring and overcooked. Nothing comes with... More
