Beautiful outdoors and quiet, all staff properly wore masks. Food was alright. Service was horrible. We were forgotten about and left many times for very long periods of time. We sat there with no drinks or food for a very long time and our waiter was not very friendly, not knowledgeable about food or drinks/wine, and inexperienced. Brought us something other than what we ordered. Very surprising for what seemed like such a nice restaurant.
This review is for an outdoor seating reservation at 6pm on a Saturday.
The setting was lovely, and both the server and manager were very attentive and apologetic - they knew the restaurant was striking out last night, doing their best to make up for it.
First, the dinners were brought immediately with the salads. We sent the dinners back - besides being too early, one of the dinner orders was wrong and one was missing - but the third salad didn't arrive until after the dinners, with some prompting. Servers continued to arrive with other tables' orders. Confusion ruled the evening, but everyone has an off night.
The food, however, left a lot to be desired. Chicken parmigiana was fairly tasteless and lacked any salt (server and manager both acknowledged that the kitchen used to oversalt and now wasn't adding any at all). Ragu sauce for gluten free penne dish tasted burnt/ bottom of the pot, and the portion was surprisingly small.
Lovely setting and staff, but three dinners with salad and one round of drinks came to $200, which is overpriced for what it is.
Great food and service.
The server was absolutely terrible. He did not know what he was doing. he did not introduce himself. He just walked over to the table and started talking about the specials and interrupted my conversation with my business partner. he did not bring a spoon with the pasta he had to be asked. he did not offer grated cheese for the pasta which I had to ask. Overall this server should not be serving or should be trained to do a better job at his job. By the way his name was Brian.
amazing service!! feels like home when we step into this restaurant.
I used to love Toscanova & its delicious food. Since Covid & since June 15th when we re-opened in LA county - I found the menu completely changed. Not very many interesting items. The food we had for lunch (one arugula salad & 2 different types of pizza) was just blah. And, the carpet around our table was filthy with food droppings as well. Disappointing. We were there at 12:30 & the restaurant was almost completely empty. Sad. I will say that our server was great though. Please bring back your great menu & excellent food!!! It is such a lovely restaurant setting & I dislike seeing it go downhill!
The team that served us were fantastic. Fun, personable and great at pairings and suggestions. We had a wonderful time and will be back
Great service, wonderful food!
We went to celebrate a birthday and it was terrible! Started with busboy accidentally spilling a glass of water across the table but no one really came to clean it up. We had to ask them to change the soaking wet table cloth. Our waiter was nice but since he was also the bartender he was not able to serve us properly. Our food was cold and was missing one main course which then arrived after the others had finished their meals. The Mgr offered us desserts and the cheesecake was very strange with raisins in it which was not described on the menu and the fruit tart was soggy
Overall a big mess!
Overall nice place and no real complaints. Straight forward menu and drink selection. The server was the best part as she was very attentive and pleasant. Did not stand out as a must have spot for date night etc but most certainly will give it a shot again to see if I may have just missed the mark with too simple of a selection.
The service was bad ! We were treated badly . Our waiter was the worst I’ve ever had . Will never return or recommend this place to any of my friends or family . I will encourage them not to .
Wonderful evening with delicious food great service and atmosphere
Amazing food, amazing customer service
The ambiance and buzz in the restaurant is inviting and welcoming. Everywhere you look, people are smiling, enjoying their dining experience and their meals. The service staff is very friendly, accommodating and were helpful and prompt in resolving an order issue. My family and I went to celebrate a birthday and graduation and loved it. We will definitely be back and I would highly recommend this restaurant for just a casual dinner, romantic date night or for a small event gathering- you will not regret it.
Good. Not amazing. Needs a better wine program. By the glass wines are weak. Need better and more options. Never received bottle menu. Menu had an asterisk by certain items, but no mention of what the asterisk was for. Confusing.
Extremely bad service, we were sat 30 minutes after the reservation, food arrived at different times (20 minutes apart).
Excellent food and service as always. Courteous servers, great ambiance.
I hadn't been to back Toscanova for at least 5 years. Now I'm kicking myself for losing track of this gem. If you like upscale Italian, you owe it to yourself to give it a try.
Lovely setting, attentive service, delicious food; what more can one ask for!
Great location and excellent service an food. Very relaxing eating outside and Covid compliance was maintained. Nice selection of Italian dishes and was overall an great experience.
Lovely to sit outside by the grass . Such a great atmosphere. I hope it never goes back to the old way!
Great food and service friendly environment have been a customer over 10 years great 🍷 selection Luka is the best manager
The soup was excellent and the truffle pasta was outstanding. The salad - not so much. The service was excellent - Stephanie who was a delight. Didn't care for the music, and the cheesecake was subpar. Overall we would go back and would recommend.
I had the best calamari salad. It’s light and delicious 😋
Service was poor. Asked for salt/pepper and red pepper flakes twice. Asked for bread one time which never arrived. Never refilled water glasses. Need more staff for busy night.
Great to see things opening up. Their outside expansion makes the place even better. All was good. Prices have gone up alot though.
excellent service; great atmosphere. broad menu. very pricey
I’ve always enjoyed the casual ambiance and great food at Toscanova.
Wonderful Food! Best Waiter..... Nino. Table outside near Fire it. Lovely!
One if the best dining experiences! I highly recommend Toscanova
It was fine. Quiet atmosphere, great waiter.
We eat here frequently. The food is always good and the staff helpful and friendly. Reliable for a good experience.
Booked a reservation to celebrate a birthday. Who pays $50 for an entree at a restaurant whose wine list that offered “red or white”, a total joke
We had a great time. Our waiter was absolutely amazing and I am great full for his suggestions. Flood was amazing
Ambience and service was good but food and presentation of food wasn’t good or upto the standard of what they charge
Well, unfortunately despite the service being good, the food was truly mediocre for the high prices. A $34 plate of spagetti with shrimp, should not leave the diner literally picking shell out of your mouth constantly, leaving a ring of shrimp shell bits all around the plate. When it's nearly $200 out the door and you've had mediocre bread, mediocre appetizer, and a pasta "specialty" that literally had at least a dozen shell pieces in it, and a pretty flavorless dessert? That's a serious drag, no matter how good the service.
Pricy but good
Portions were large enough to share
Calamari was excellent
This was a 90th birthday celebration for my mother and I could not have had a nicer experience. The servers were wonderful, warm and helpful. Our table was just beautiful and we had a perfect celebration. Thank you Toscanova Calabasas!
Authentically Italian cuisine, fresh and delicious.
We waited an hour for our table despite our booking and prompt arrival so it was late by the time we actually got to eat.
Aside from that, great night
