Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stumbled across Il Toscano as we strolled along main street in Terrigal. The menu and prices were better than what we'd seen in Terrigal. We decided to book a table for that night. The Italian guy was so friendly as were the other staff. The food was delicious, esp the garlic bread, which we enquired about after we'd eaten it! You'll have to try it for yourself! Looks like it's a fav for the locals too!

This was my second experience here and each time I have come it has been wonderful. The pasta is amazing and coupled with an intimate and cozy atmosphere it makes for a perfect outing. Loving the new location! Will be back!

Dined here very recently and had a delicious meal, as usual. Good selection of wine and excellent service. Lots of pasta choices and very tasty sauces.I has spaghetti marinara and was very impressed with the amount of seafood in the dish.

I visited with a friend for a small celebratory dinner and this place hit the spot! The pasta was very fresh and flavoursome and the serving size was perfect. I was a little nervous about having a table on the street but it was a really lovely atmosphere! I will definitely be back!

This is hands down the BEST pasta I have ever had, and I have had plenty of pasta! Staff were so, so friendly and the food was AMAZING. I literally could not recommend more. The only down of the night was that I went there for the first time pregnant, and could not fit all my meal in. 100% will be going back, I’ve told everyone! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

First time here and booked for an early dinner. First impression was its so tiny and all seating is outside with most on the street curb. The menu is somewhat limited but there should be something to suit. It should be noted their are no cooked meat dishes or desserts. Basically a few entrees and a variety of pasta dishes. The bolognese arancini balls were small but flavoursome. The capricee salad was ok but the tomatoes were sliced too thinly and lacked flavour. It was also flooded in olive oil. A couple of pieces of crusty bread would have been great to soak it up with a splash of balsamic vinegar. The pasta with beef ragu and the pasta with pork fennel sausage was very tasty and generous serving size. The alcohol prices are up there eg. $12 for an Italian lager. Overall, the service was friendly and wait times acceptable. The bill was about $115 for 2 entrees, 2 main pastas, 1 beer and 1 can of coke. We would probably not dine in again but rather order takeaway as sitting on/near the footpath on a busy street is somewhat distracting.

Hi Jan, Thank you for your feedback! I am so happy you enjoyed our food, particularly our pasta and also our service. That’s for us it is the most important thing to know. I am quite disappointed about your unsatisfactory of our set up and menu. IL TOSCANO is a pasta bar. It is not a normal restaurant. We are specialized in fresh pasta and sauces. Therefore we don’t have any cooked meat or desert option. It shouldn’t be a surprise if someone look through our website, photos, menus, social media or even walk pass, before any bookings. The setup of this pasta bar is exactly the same as any pasta bar or similar concept in Italy. However, thanks anyway for your feedback. You are more than welcome to come back for some take away. Thanks again

Walking down the street looking at the menus. Sam invited us in with some friendly and knowledgeable chatter. We enjoyed lobster and salt-and-pepper squid. We don’t like pasta and we didn’t have to have pasta :) Great wine list and spirits. Will go again.

If I’d have to choose what my favourite restraints is .. I’d hands down say toscana. Best pasta on the central coast, authentic flavors that delivers every time. Always welcomed with a smile from the passionate owner who always looks after you. The food will have you coming back time and time again.

Thursday evening table for two. Antipasti plate of cured meats, cheese and breads - nice Spaghetti La Puttoneesca - very disappointing - lacking in flavour - the spaghetti was well and truly overcooked - glutinous - strands glued together without separation - see photos - Fusilli Combo - very tasty - flavoursome. Accompanied by a very nice Italian Pinot Grigio Total bill $140.00 Service similar as previously experienced last visit, friendly, helpful and efficient. Very disappointing - it doesn't need a rocket scientist to cook spaghetti al dente - for a café/restaurant that prides itself on homemade/homecooked pasta - there is vast room for improvement

Hi Vada, Thank you for your feedback! I am very disappointed about your rate and hearing you didn’t enjoy one of our Pasta but you enjoyed everything else. As you know we cook everything express and unluckily it could happen that one pasta doesn’t come out as should be. However, you always have the voice to speck with our friendly staff to inform about anything and we could have been more than happy to make a new pasta for you. It is a shame that we didn’t have the change to improve ourselves straight away. Again I am sorry for the overcook pasta but I found your rate little bit lower considering everything else was pleasant and great. Thank you again for the feedback again. I hope we will have a chance to see you again as I am very confident this issue won’t happen again.

As visitors to Terrigal for a couple days during a month long road trip through 3 states, we found this restaurant walking past and decided to book for dinner. The pasta was delicious. We had the marinara and a pasta with oil, garlic & cheese. So good. And shared a bottle of red from Italy. Happy to say that was the best meal we had over our entire trip.

We have eaten here a number of times now. Tonight they squeezed us in (on a Saturday night!) but you should definitely book. We saw about 10 couples turned away... Gorgeous food, great Italian drinks and great service despite being rushed off their feet. Highly recommended ⭐️

I was looking forward to this but my my dish (amatriciana) was not authentic and a couple of the dishes were very salty. The mushroom pasta was good though!

Such delicious food and wine! An absolute hidden gem in Terrigal. Without doubt I’ll be coming back here next time I’m at the Central Coast. Yum!
