Our server was very attentive and friendly. Host was a bit surly. Good wine list. Pizza was not memorable - salty crust and average toppings.

This tiny Italian restaurant was great! I visited with my 17 year old daughter, who was touring colleges. She is a vegetarian and had no trouble finding great options. The food and service were wonderful, better than in the North End.

One of the best spots in the city. Stopped by for lunch with my wife and still great. Hadn't been in a while. My Caesar Salad and an order of Gnocchi was perfect. A couple of glasses of vino rounded out an very enjoyable meal. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Nestled in off of the cobblestones we found Toscano. We had heard of it over the years but we didn't set out for it so we were happy to stumble upon it. After a long day, we just wanted to relax, enjoy a nice glass of wine and savor a delicious meal .. we got it! We asked for the... More

Trendy, terrific, top-of-the-line! Everything was excellent: wait-staff, atmosphere, service, food. This was our first visit to Toscano's in Beacon Hill, and it was just as wonderful, in every way, as Toscano's in Cambridge. I had the caesar salad and then spaghetti with pomodoro sauce. I added some meatballs to the sauce and the whole entre was delicious. My husband had... More

The service was spot on... but I'm still dreaming of the mushroom pasta, the braised calamari, and the burr Ayala caprese salad. The food was outstanding and priced fairly.

Looking for a great place for Italian food and wine, Toscano's will satisfy the most discriminating diner. The pasta is mouth watering and not low calorie. Portions are appropriate. Wine listing is very good. Service by Jose' and his crew was impeccable. Desserts are wonderful. The swordfish melts in your mouth and the scalapini is scrumptious - Kudos to the... More

We ate dinner here for our son's birthday. The menu was amazing, the food was delicious, the service was impeccable, and the atmosphere was lovely! We were so impressed that we booked our son's graduation dinner here for May!

Standard fare and service for this type of restaurant..... I had a veal chop special and my wife had some kind of truffled pasta. Nothing to rave about but solidly prepared. Service was good. We sat in the tables on the left as you walk in which is not a great location, ask for something different.

Wow! We had a great Tuscan wine, cheese and italian meat board that were amazing. The most pleasant surprise was our server Daniel. If you're lucky to have Daniel wait your table you won't be disappointed. Must go to restaurant, we all loved it.

Neighbourhood Profile

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path.
