    I always go Tosca, love the service, love the food, Paolo and John always are the best hosts. The veal chop is my favorite in town. The pasta are all great, the scallops are also divine. One of my favorite restaurants in DC

    I can’t remember a meal we enjoyed more. We were seated at the “anniversary table” which is very private and special. As soon as we sat down we were served complicated champagne and the meal just got better from there. Red snapper was excellent as was the delicious focaccia bread. We can’t wait to return

    The food was really delicious and the service was outstanding. The only thing that could be better is a bit more distancing between tables. My husband and I sat between two couples and they were very close to us. We heard everyone’s conversation. Other than that! Really great experience!

    We had the special swordfish - and I am flummoxed as to how the chef cooked it so that it literally melted in my mouth. The pasta dish we had first was also amazing. We will be back soon!

    This is an outstanding restaurant within the heart of Washington DC. The venue was renovated during the pandemic, has a brand new interior with nice noise dampening ceiling panels which certainly keep the ambiance. Service is exceptional with knowledgeable waiting staff. The food is Italian inspired modern dishes including refined selection of pastas, octopus with apple puree, perfectly prepared beef tenderloin, squid ink infused risotto with grilled calamari etc. Their wine list is dominated by an Italian selection complimented with Californian wines. From their deserts, the panna cotta is exceptional. Not cheap, but for this experience, it is worth it.

    It was our first time dining here and we will definitely be coming back. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant until we left we had a wonderful evening. Our food was all outstanding and the service was great. I highly recommend the Veal Chop as an entree.

    My husband and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary on Saturday evening with dinner at Tosca. The host and wait staff congratulated us as we were shown to our window-side table. Glasses of Prosecco arrived as we perused the menu, later followed by a complimentary dessert and a card wishing us a happy anniversary. Of course dinner itself was excellent - I had red snapper and my husband enjoyed grilled octopus, along with a side of roasted cauliflower. Thanks to everyone at Tosca Ristorante for making our special evening that much better! Grazie mille!

    The Food is amazing. The staff was great! We were 35 min late for my anniversary reservation due to tech malfunction of my gps. They were gracious enough to hold our table even though they were busy. They were efficient, friendly, and I hope to dine here again. Thank you for making our anniversary an extremely special one.

    Tosca is a classy spot with very good food and a gorgeous setting. However, last evening my party continually felt like we were being upsold and pushed to drink more wine, etc. The server kept trying to insert additional courses 'for the table' and was too quick to top off everyone's glass with wine. We also felt a bit rushed to order, seemingly to turn the table as we were dining early. While the food is excellent, this was a real turn-off..

    We hadn’t been to Tosca since before the pandemic and it was great to see that our meal was every bit as wonderful as it had always been. Everything was delicious— burrata, spaghetti vongole, squid ink risotto, and the octopus. The service was also excellent and our server recommended a terrific wine to go with the meal. It was great to be back!

    The squid ink risoto was very delicious, however, the grilled squid on it was very salty. It was like putting a spoonful of salt in your mouth. I also ordered the grilled octopus which was very salty as well. On a good note, the beef tenderloin, foccacia bread and desert was really good.

    Restaurant Management was very good and dropped by 3 times to see how we were doing We ordered drinks and our meal was served in less than 10 minutes way before we were ready for them It seems the server ignored us after that for long periods of time. I would have to flag him down for anything

    Tosca is one of our most favorite restaurants in all of DC and we were very disappointed in the visit. The Hamachi was amazing but the other food was "average" and way below the Tosca standard. however, what was most troubling was that our waiter was "selling" us the entire meal... the upgraded expensive wine... the additional food... the extra bottles of water that showed up right before the check and still charged us. The only time i have felt this hard sell is when visiting Mr. Chow in Hollywood. We were hosting investors in from out of town and they could not stop talking about the pushy sale of the waiter. We felt like we were buying a car instead of having a pleasant business meal.
