This is an amazing traditional Italian restaurant. The service is amazing, everyone is so nice! The food is absolutely delicious and you should try the spice olive with bread! I had the lasagna and it was simply amazing.

We had had a big lunch so we're looking for somewhere to have a light dinner. While they were a bit off-hand at first, we went on to have a lovely dinner. The service was great, and their English was very good, which made it easier.

Fantastic tiny restaurant which has been in business for more than 25 years. Live piano playing Thursday, Friday and Saturday. A bit of classic and some classics from the movies. Not loud just extremely atmospheric and romantic. Good menu and great, attentive service without being claustrophobic. Diverse and good wine menu. Best spaghetti carbonara since I went to Rome 5...

We booked this restaurant through something called "the fork" that at least claimed to be associated with tripadvisor. We received two confirmations - one by email, one by SMS. We arrived at the restaurant to be told by the waiter (I think - my portuguese is not so good) that we did not have a reservation and to wait till... More

Came here the first time following a recommendation, and had such a pleasant time, which included great service, and excellent authentic Italian food. Following our first visit, came for a second dinner two nights later. Enjoyed a very warm welcome (as well as the first visit, and even more) and a great evening once more!

On expensive pasta restaurant your not expecting to have 'supermarket' over cocked Spaghetti, any Italian would be quite offended with that (we actually ask specifically to be 'aldent'). They had generally Good service and a sad piano player... When the bill came I couldn't believe how much I was going to pay for the Starters, were good but way expensive.

We have been to a few italian places during our time in Porto and I must say that this was the most disappointing Italian that we ate at, and somehow the most expensive! To start we were provided the usual bread rolls as a starter. I obliged, thinking that there would be a charge per basket. However there I later... More

I was invite for a friend to visit Toscano, when I realize it's a Italian Restaurant, I'm feel uncomfortable because I don't like too much pastas. But my friend relax me saying there is many others options besides pastas to eat. The restaurant its small and very cozy. A piano guy playing Italian classics and waitress's was nice and kind...
