overpriced mediocrity – When you over salt a simple red sauce you are in trouble. What is it about the casinos that they try to pass on great food to us because THEY tell us it is supposed to be great. What a disaster our meal was... our server was out to lunch and actually delivered half our appetizers with one of our entrees and the wrong bottle of wine. Not just Tuscany, but we've decided never to return to the casinos. Every trip has been a let down. And the smell of smoke that permeates the place. YUCK
Terrible will not reccomend – We took a day trip to Mogehan sun to have a great night of gambling and having a nice dinner. When we arrived to Tuscany there was a long line but the host insured us it would only be 30min as 30 min go by the host comes over to inform us they are setting up the table and it should only be about 5min 5min later the host returns to us again insiting it should only be a couple more min (we only waited this long because it looked nice and the menu looked delicious) as we were seated outside next to the waterfall the seats were comfortable but that was about it. Our waitress was friendly we recieved our drinks and since we were starving for waiting so long we were hoping for a basket of bread. We ended up having to ask for it even though the table of 4 next to us who came AFTER we did already had there bread. So the men ordered ceasar salads (which were 9 dollars a pop) lets just put it this way I have seen better Friendly restaurant salads before it was just one thing of lettuce and you had to cut it up yourself (we all had a laugh) Then after waiting a hour and 10min FINALLY our dinners came out (the waitress apoligized due to having larger parties) ANYWAYS I ordered the chicken carabrese, the dinner was average and after a couple bites I could not eat anymore I felt so sick to my stomache. Everyone elses food was just alright you would think paying almost 30 dollars a dish the food would be excellent WRONG! our bill was $150 I will never recommend this place to anyone and I defianlty will tell my freinds and family and never return.
Terrible service with decent food – We were excited to eat at Tuscany as all of Todd English's restaraunts seem to get such great reviews. When we arrived we were told to stand in a first come first serve line to be seated, although there were plenty of open tables. We were told that there were not enough servers so we would have to wait.
When we finally were seated it was next to a waterfall that was so loud we could barely hear each other speak over the small table. The waiter brought the $60 bottle of Shiraz we ordered and broke the cork in half while opening the bottle. Presentation was awful.
We put in an order for Calimari appetizer, which did not arrive after 25 minutes nor had our orders for entrees been taken. Our waiter walked by numerous times and seemed to be completely ignoring our attempts to get our attention. Soon after our appetizer and entree arrived. Food was decent, but my boyfriend was sick all night from the food. Overall a large dissapointment, okay food with HORRIBLE service. For a fairly expensive dinner there are much better choices than Tuscany.
Worst gnocchi every – I looked forward to Todd English's Tuscany because we have no good Italian food were we live. This was about a 45 min drive. We started wtih the frito misto which was calamari with a tasty and spicy sauce.
The caesar was "deconstructed" : an uncut set of romaine leaves with dressing and cheese and croutons on the side. The diner had to cut the cut the romaine into edible-sized pieces and was able to eat only a few of the croutons, because they were too hard to spear with my fork. The caesar also lacked anchovies.
I had ordered the gnocchi because this is a dish I love and don't get very often, unless I make it myself. It was so bad I sent it back. The wads of dough were cooked into mush and not even shaped into gnocchi so the sauce, which tasted less than fresh didn't cling to the pasta. Todd English should be embarassed to have his name on this restaurant and to even call this potato mush gnocchi. We defintiely will not erturn to this disaster.
big disappopintment – We took a small vacation to Connecticut and went to Mohegan Sun. They had a hotel package that included dinner at Tuscany (located in Mohegan Sun). We were looking forward to a nice romantic evening and a great dinner. It certainly looks like you can expect that from the location of the restaurant.
Tuscany was a big disappointment. The hostess and manager were rude and initially refused to seat us, despite the restaurant being nearly empty and them having very few reservations. The table we were finally seated at was so uneven, that my wine glass nearly tipped over when our entress were placed on the table because the table rocked so badly. My boyfriend's dinner was cold, and my gnocchi was poorly prepared (not even shaped into gnocchi!) and overcooked to inedible mush. The waitress took my boyfriends entree back, and he got the spaghetti and meatballs instead ("They can't screw up spachetti and meatballs, can they?") But screw it up they did - the meatballs were so overcooked and hard, neither one of us could even cut into them. The waitress was cold, rude and condescending. The manager on that night was equally unhelpful and unavailable. We finally decided to just leave and eat dinner somewhere else.
Because this was part of the package offered through the hotel, we complained to the front desk about our experience. We were suprised to hear from them that another couple had complained about the same thing the previous night!
Not recommended under any circumstances. Todd English, you should be ashamed of this one.
