We splurged on Toscano with our surly teenagers on New Year's Eve -- showed up in jeans and t-shirts and they treated us like royalty. By the end of the meal, everyone was happy. Daniel was a terrific server, personable, knowledgeable, and efficient. Didn't steer...More

great place for a casual italian dinner after-work. living in beacon hill, tocscano is a great neighborhood resource. loves the soups on a cold winter evening. indulgent pasta seems a great luxury that makes falling off the anti-carb wagon worthwhile.

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

It's too bad they are not a part of Open Table reservations. Call when you get into town. The North end is a close 15 minute walk from that area for more choices of Italian foods.
