Trendy, terrific, top-of-the-line! Everything was excellent: wait-staff, atmosphere, service, food. This was our first visit to Toscano's in Beacon Hill, and it was just as wonderful, in every way, as Toscano's in Cambridge. I had the caesar salad and then spaghetti with pomodoro sauce. I added some meatballs to the sauce and the whole entre was delicious. My husband had... More

The service was spot on... but I'm still dreaming of the mushroom pasta, the braised calamari, and the burr Ayala caprese salad. The food was outstanding and priced fairly.

Looking for a great place for Italian food and wine, Toscano's will satisfy the most discriminating diner. The pasta is mouth watering and not low calorie. Portions are appropriate. Wine listing is very good. Service by Jose' and his crew was impeccable. Desserts are wonderful. The swordfish melts in your mouth and the scalapini is scrumptious - Kudos to the... More

We ate dinner here for our son's birthday. The menu was amazing, the food was delicious, the service was impeccable, and the atmosphere was lovely! We were so impressed that we booked our son's graduation dinner here for May!

Standard fare and service for this type of restaurant..... I had a veal chop special and my wife had some kind of truffled pasta. Nothing to rave about but solidly prepared. Service was good. We sat in the tables on the left as you walk in which is not a great location, ask for something different.

Wow! We had a great Tuscan wine, cheese and italian meat board that were amazing. The most pleasant surprise was our server Daniel. If you're lucky to have Daniel wait your table you won't be disappointed. Must go to restaurant, we all loved it.

If you can make it through the meal and have room, the Tiramisu is worth getting! Menu is very good for everyone one from food snobs to kids that just want pasta with white sauce.

We ate at Tuscano recently on a cold Friday night. We arrived about 5:20 before the crowd and were seated at a great table in the dining room. By luck, it was restaurant week in Boston and there was a wonderful Prix Fixe Menu. We started with the smoked salmon and mushroom pasta primi plati. Both were excellent and beautifully... More

I recently had lunch at Toscano on Charles Street while staying in the Back Bay. I was blown away with the ambiance, diversity of menu, service and value for the money. I have no idea how I have missed this place for so many years and always end up at Beacon Street Bistro. I will most certainly be back and... More

Very nice Sunday Lunch during Boston Restaurant week. 3 courses for $20 can't be beat. Started with the classic Caesar salad with extra anchovies, main course of veal scallopini and finished with the Tiramisu. The Salmon also looked and tasted increasingly. Veal was good, but sauce could have been more flavorful. Tiramisu was outstanding and made more like a mousse... More

Staying in Beacon Hill

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.
