“Amazing Italian food!”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

We ate here on the last night of our trip and it was a great way to end our stay. The food was amazing, the bread, salad, everything! We both enjoyed our meals. You can really taste how fresh the pasta is. I'm glad others commented on where the location is or I would have driven right by! This place is a hidden gem!

“Best Italian Food I've ever had, taken by surprise”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

This being our first time in Myrtle Beach, we tried to find an outstanding seafood restaurant, and failed three nights in a row. After burning ourselves out on mediocre seafood I really wasn't expecting much coming here. The reviews were good, but I still wasn't expecting much due to the low rent exterior looks of the place and location.
What a lesson on judging a book (or restaurant) by its cover!
First of all they make their pasta fresh in house. I've always thought any mid or high priced sit down Italian restaurant that cares at all about their food quality and customers should be making their pasta in house, not pouring it out of a cardboard box, but the sad truth is most of them don't bother because their customers don't demand it of them, and it's more profitable to take the easy way out. This is especially insulting when it comes to ravioli because aside from the sauce, you just paid for them to boil something you could have bought at a store all the same, mark it up 400% and put it on a plate.
Sorry for the rant but I want to emphasize that Toscana is not taking the easy way out here and we greatly appreciated the effort in our entrees, which were bar none the best we've ever had at an Italian restaurant anywhere before.
I had the Crema Di Gargonzola con Aragosta with veal and it was incredible. Certainly not healthy but worth every calorie in it. I would have a serious weight issue if I didn't live several hours from this place!
Their soup and salad were both very good - maybe not the best I've ever had but close enough to it... both freshly made, and a solid 9/10.
Also, the complimentary freshly baked bread they bring out first with the roasted red pepper and olive oil dipping sauce was unbelievably good - again the best I've ever had and I wanted to keep eating it long after I was full.

I want to emphasize that this is a place you should come and take the time and effort to really experience the smell, taste and texture of your food. Savor every bite and develop a deeper understanding of what Italian food should actually taste like. The problem is if you're just vacationing here, you may never feel the same way about your local Italian restaurants again!

“On a scale of 1-5, it was a 10!!!”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

We had a party of 8 including some children and New Yorkers who are picky about their Italian food!!! It was absolutely perfect!! Food was amazing--we were told that there was no fine dining in Myrtle Beach--this was fine Italian dining for any city. Dont let the fact that the restaurant is between an Eagles store and a dollar store fool you!!!!

“Outstanding! A real treat in Myrtle Beach”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

If you are looking for really good food and something away from the fast food chains that cover Myrtle Beach, this is a place to come. The food is outstanding. As good as any we have had in Italy. The service is excellent and it is nice to eat in a relaxed atmosphere. Every dish we tried was exceptional. One note, make sure you get reservations. We noted several folks come in without reservations and the wait was up to an hour and a half. Don't miss this one.
