This was a very romantic beautiful place. The food was outstanding and the wait staff bent over backward to accommodate us. I can't wait to go back in may. Make sure you make a reservation before you go. They are very busy.

Came for a late lunch with couples. Very nice upscale atmosphere, but think the food is likely what makes this a popular option. Definitely some creativity in the menu. Salads were very nicely done. Excellent service. Nice part of town to explore.

I am biased: I was born, raised and fed in Italy. I don't normally like going to Italian restaurants in the US (or actually anywhere outside of Italy), they are normally a disappointment. Toscana was not. Solid truthful food with one of the best Restaurant...More

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.
