Short and quick....if you are a wine or sangria drinker, the red sangria is really, really good. Half of my reason for going to Tosca. The other half of the reason of the coal oven pizza, that is always think and crispy....can't go wrong if you like a nice thin crusted pizza. Always a nice crowd there, good for date night, hanging with the homies, or just enjoying family night.

Lost Art

Dined on January 9, 2016

The venue at Tosca is nothing more than relaxing under dim light with great port and delicious fare. The wait staff is attentive without being annoying, their timing is just right. The many variations of food open the palate for return trips. A definite must if in The Bronx!

Christmas Day Magic

Dined on December 25, 2015

I visited Tosca's Cafe on Christmas Day because it was my sister's birthday, at first I was a little hesitant about making the reservation fearing a large crowd and poor service.however when I got there I noticed that although the place was pretty busy the service was attentive and friendly. the food took a little time to come out ,which is understandable because it Was Christmas Day but was excellent and fresh. its Stephanie an environment where I would go back with my friends for brunch or nice night out for some drinks.

Not what it used to be

Dined on August 22, 2015

In previous years went to Tosca quite often. Just returned and was very disappointed with the food. Was not what it was before. Friends that I brought along were not impressed after I raved about it. On a positive note, the service was good, staff very courteous and friendly, the restaurant was clean and nicely decorated and had nice outdoor seating. The food on the other hand was not what I remembered --- sad to say. I hope they make improvements.

Dined on May 3, 2015

Overall, a very disappointing experience. First of all, I had made a reservation through Open Table specifically letting them know we were a party of 10 plus one infant coming. When we got there, the hostess said our reservation was not in the system and proceeded to seat us at a table near the bar despite there being 5 children aged 10 and under. Our appetizers came out cold and the entrees were below average compared to what we are accustomed to at Tosca. While our waitress (Raquel) was friendly and attentive and provided good service overall, it took a very long tine for us to get the check after we had finished dessert.

Disapointed coming back home

Dined on April 4, 2015

I grew up in the Bronx and came back home. I wanted to try a new location and Tosca's came up so I tried it. I typically go to the Pines (F&J) or to Authur ave. Toscas service was very poor and unorganized. The appertizers, salad and dinner all came out within 5 minutes of each other . I didn't even finish my appertizer when the salad came out. The main dish came out before I could even eat the salad. The waiters answer to me when I protested the food coming out too fast was to leave it on the empty table next to me. It was totally unacceptable for the waitor to do what he did especially when the buffet was over and the early dinner crowd didn't come in yet. There were several waiters standing around doing nothing. I would never go back or reccomend the place. I especially went after the buffet so I could try ordering off the menu.

Reservation

Dined on March 31, 2015

Upon arrival I was informed that the restaurant did not have a reservation on file for me. They were able to accommodate my group due to the fact that it was not crowded at the time of the day.

Food

Dined on March 21, 2015

I was a very disappointed with my Entree'. I ordered the Lobster Ravioli. I was looking for perhaps lumps of Lobster but instead it was like a lobster puree. No lobster favor what-so-ever. Very bland in taste. Someone else in my party ordered Fettuchine Alfredo with grilled chicken. She recieved very little chicken and a bowl full of Fettucine noodles.

Cold day inside Tosca's :(

Dined on February 23, 2015

Our experience was good, but if not only for the fact that we could not enjoy ourselves because the restaurant inside temperature on a very cold day was even colder inside once our coats were off, so it was a bit too cold for my taste, will return once the weather warms up. Other than that food, ambience and wait staff was excellent. Will definitely go back once the weathers improves..

YUMMY!

Dined on February 14, 2015

It was my first time in Tosca; it was y niece's 18th birthday. The waiter was so kind as to get a candle and sang Happy Birthday for her. The food was good. We all had a different dish so we could sample all. I had the lamb chops ...when the plate was placed in front of me I could not believe my eyes! No only did they give me more than enough lamb chops, but they were as I wanted them and delicious! My guests had chicken parm, also good. Someone else had the veal, also good. I will definitely be back!

The service was ok. I saw the waiter 3 times including when he brought the check. That was actually the quickest I saw him come to our table that night. The food was really good and so were the drinks. It was a fun girls night and was thankful for the valet especially with the cold snowy weather we had.

Not bad for a date

Dined on January 17, 2015

It has a large menu that fits everyone and a long wine list. Plus a full bar so anythings possible. Oh did i mention the Italian cafe has a sushi bar. So its great for a quick bite or something more intimate.

Excellent Dining Experience

Dined on January 11, 2015

I enjoyed the people, the service and the food. I would definitely returned to this restaurant and try other dishes. My favorite dish thus far is the chicken Francese! First time trying out the clams casino it was a delight. The Red Sangria was exquisite my Fiancée is not a drinker and he had the entire glass. I love the music and the energetic feel of the place. Looking forward to going back very soon.

need better service, food was dry with no taste

Dined on December 7, 2014

Called me the day of my reservation to put down a $50 deposit, when I had booked a table months ahead. What an inconvenience. The food was dry with no taste, it was like it just came out the freezer and thrown in the microwave, I had Lobster Ravioli. The Calamari had no taste and the dipping sauce was nasty. The food wasn't even hot.... The only thing I liked was the drinks!

Great around the way spot

Dined on October 5, 2014

I seldom dine in the Bronx (where I live), just prefer to Dine in Manhattan however I have been dining and taking out from Tosca's for over fifteen years and its truly good Italin food and a great price and a nice setting for the Bronx. I've done brunch (which I'm not too keen on because of the crowds) but I love dinner at Tosca's. A great place for drinks and pasta without havng to travel to Manhattan.

The service was amazing, the food delicious, ambiance and lighting amazing, good music and the bar and drinks awesome. Only complaint is frozen drinks very light on the alcohol, other than that great place. I can recommend a hundred times over and know I've provided a service for someone.
