I've eaten at Tuscany Bistro many times and the food and service is always excellent. They've recently updated the menu and it continues to be an interesting choice of meat, fish or pasta dishes. This is not the usual homogenized Italian fare one gets. I recommend this restaurant for anyone who wants to try a different type of menu.

We stopped in recently at this lovely little Tuscany style restaurant, with a cozy romatic bar. We shared a large cold antipasto - very tasty authentic italian type of antipasto's not your typical Pizzeria type of watered down antipasto... They have our vote, the other dishes looked amazing and large portions. We will be making this a regular weekend stop!

We have visited the Tuscany bistro several times. We've always enjoyed the food and the very generous portions. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is pleasant and enjoyable. This is a great venue for family night dinner or a special night out.

The food at Tuscany Bistro is very good. I had a chicken and eggplant dish and totally enjoyed it. The restaurant was clean and service was very good.

Went there today and the parking lot was full. Stayed anyway. Turns out they were having a party so there ample room in the dining area. The food was very good and so was the service despite the party. A suggestion to the waite staff is they look look at the tables when walking through the dining area.

My son and I were in Newton on a hiking long weekend. We just walked out of the new SS Smoke house in Newton NJ unhappy for how we were treated (another story). We were hungry and in a bad mood. We didn't know where to eat. Newton is not known for its epicurean delights. We could not find anything... More

I've been to Tuscany Bistro on numerous occasions. Their food is absolutely delicious! They have a wide variety of menu items to choose from and the best part is you can customize the meal to your liking. Service is usually pretty good. I've only had one dining experience where the service was not up to par. I won't hold it... More

Tuscany Bistro has been a favorite since they opened. Its our go-to Italian restaurant with family and friends. We typically share the calamari which is crisp on outside and tender calamari , never rubbery. Too many favorite entrees to list but my top 3 are Fusilli Brindisi, Farfalle Taormina and Tagliatella Castellamare. The portions are huge so usually too full... More

We have eaten here a number of times both as a couple and with a small group.. the service is wonderful and accommodating giving us lots of space to sit. The food is very good and you can watch the chef cook while you eat.
