Excellent, well presented dishes, friendly, professional service, an upscale ambiance in a cozy cul-de-sac, and free parking at a lot across the street, make Il Toscano a go-to place for fine, satisfying dining in Queens. The restaurant has an upscale Manhattan vibe and the menu offers a number of creative, well-prepared dishes. I had the chicken scarpariello and my wife... More

Burrata appetizer was delightfully fresh. Real tomatoes in February. Others had the oysters, well seasoned. And then all five of us ordered the famous lobster out of the shell. It's that good. We will return for the lasagna.

From the warm greeting at the door to the sincere show of concern by the head waiter, our evening was wonderful from beginning to end. The selection of wines by the glass was top shelf, which enabled us to avoid purchasing a full bottle to get a quality wine. The servers were attentive and professional. The food was delicious and...

I'll start with the food... I've been to Italy many times and this restaurant tastes just as good as the food I've had in Italy... there's definitely authenticity here. I had a pasta special for an appetizer and a fish special for my entree. The fish was very fresh I love that they leave the skin on... and it was... More

I have eaten here a few times in the past year - each time was because a physician client wanted to go to il Toscano so we accommodated. Prices are high for the area. The owner (the son - it is a father/son ownership situation) barely acknowledges me as he walks around even after I have been introduced many times... More

If you have an issue with claustrophobia do not go to this restaurant. It is close quarters from beginning to end. When you check in to the restaurant you have to slither past hordes of others to get to the receptionist. When seated the tables are so close together that you feel like you are dining with the entire restaurant.... More

Salads were good as was the entrees $60 for the lobster out of the shell? A bit excessive. Deserts average.
