Had a fabulous meal here. We were lucky enough to be given a seat in the window. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. The scallop dish was one of the best we have had in Boston.

I'd been here twice before since moving to Boston over a decade ago. Third time's apparently the charm (past visits were quite a while ago before renovations, etc.) The gnocchi all'aragosta was delicious and made for a fantastic lunch the next day (excellent cold, too.)

Toscano was a wonderful find in Boston. Made reservations at the last minute and host was able to find a spot to fit us in. The food was delicious and the atmosphere of the restaurant was warm and inviting.

Wonderful local atmosphere and friendly bar scene with some great Italian wines, reasonably priced. Not too hungry, just ask for a 1/2 portion off already reasonable prices. Be sure to ask for the extra virgin olive oil for your salad and bread...

A taste of Italy at its best...Our experience was a great one from the moment we walked in until the time we finished dessert. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful, and we couldn't have asked for much more.

Beacon Hill
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

It's too bad they are not a part of Open Table reservations. Call when you get into town. The North end is a close 15 minute walk from that area for more choices of Italian foods.
