Toscano is a Charles Street neighborhood gem. Chris, the maître d and the rest of the wait staff are wonderful. Food is top notch Italian. It's a perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.

I had my birthday dinner with my boyfriend at Toscano and we were very surprised. I wanted a lobster risotto, which they have as a side plate for the whole lobster main course but not as a main course itself, and they did it for me when I asked. The portion was huge, and there were real pieces of lobster,... More

The meal was fantastic but there was quite a but if time between courses. We were having fun so it didn't matter but if... More

As Figs had a 45 minute wait time, we ended up at Toscano. The service was professional, quick and swift. While we entered the main dining room it had an odor that was not very pleasant. I was quite hesitant at that point. As my nose adjusted in time for the food came out, my taste buds took over and... More

I was in vacation with my family and we went to this restaurant. Since the time we arrive at the restaurant, the waiter behaviour was really rude! I went to several good restaurants in the area, this was simply the worst service, i do not recommend to spent any time there

Went in here with the idea of having a pizza. The restaurant was recommended by the concierge at my hotel. She had already given me a good recommenadation earlier in the week, so I thought I would give it a shot here. The location is good and the restaurant looks good from the outside. The options looked good on the... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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 path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
