Greatest Restaurant – Been to II Toscano many times and always had a great experience. Food is excellent and the staff is so wonderful. Wine menu is fantastic and they always recommend a wine that goes with what we order which we always enjoy. Love the mussels and the lobster also the desserts especially the napeoleon delicious.
It is one of my favorite places to eat and you will not be dissapointed ever it's excellent
A Great Find in Douglaston! – Don't let the negative reviews fool you, this place is elegant with great food and excellent service... a top notch place in Northern Queens. Go see for yourself, you will not be disappointed. Valet parking available.
Exceptional food in a beautiful atmosphere, – If you are planning to visit NYC area, you must try the exceptional food of Il Toscano Restaurant (42-05 235th Street, Douglaston, New York 11363, tel: (718) 631-0300 fax: (718) 225-5223).
Average Italian food, horrible service – I do not recommend this place for vegetarians. The service is horrible. I ordered a beer, waiter brought a cup that was 1/4 full with water which he poured into my drinking water. Food was average, have had better italian food up the street. If you plan on parking, bring exact change or get there early (no free parking besides street parking). Would not recommend this place because of the horrible service.
Editorial Review – Experience and taste the flavors of Italy at IL Toscano Restaurant in the Flushing, New York City area.
fresh mozzarella made for you while you wait! – I was told about this great restaurant near the LIRR train station in Douglaston, and took my wife there for dinner on a rainy Saturday night. I walked into a warm and beautifully appointed room with smiling faces and instantly felt that I was a regular. Great service, and great food were of course expected, and we were not disappointed! When the waitor told me that there was fresh mozzarella, I asked "how fresh?" I was told...we are going to make it for you. Indeed, warm mozzarella that left the taste of milk in my mouth transported me back to the Italian sausage shop from my youth growing up in Brooklyn. And that was only the beginning! My wife is a lobster lover, and she was told to order the "lobster dish" which while not on the menu, is available. I ordered the lasagna. We were both blown away! The lobster was cooked to perfection, and with the waitor's desire to make sure that it was taken out of the shell for her, it allowed her to enjoy the dish without having to do the work. For me..I had never tasted melt in my mouth lasagna -ever- but that was what I got, complete with all the cheeses, sauce and meat that is supposed to accompany a well made dish. It was almost like dessert. And since I brought up dessert, when you go, you must try the Napolean! Lighter than air, and wonderful to enjoy, it finished off the meal perfectly. And, we are not the only ones! Looking around the restaurant, (we dined in the upstairs dining room the last time, so there is plenty of room for big parties) we saw that everyone else felt the same way. The last time we went it was my wife's birthday and the manager introduced himself and bought us an after dinner drink. I cannot reccommend this restaurant more for people who want great food (try the veal!), great drinks, and great service- all in a winning atmosphere!
The Best Italian Resaurant in New York! – My husband and I go to Il Toscano regularly. We don't know what we like best; the food, extensive wine list, or the personal service we always receive. The food is always fresh and delicious. The fresh mozzarella is a MUST and you can never go wrong with the Lasagna. Make sure you save room for the Napoleon afterwards. It is Heaven on Earth!
Just as good as the food is the service you receive, the staff is always warm and inviting and very knowledgeable about the food and menu. I can't say enough about Il Toscano but I will tell you it is my favorite restaurant!
Best Lasagna and Napoleans i've ever tasted. – This classy Tuscan Italian has the best lasagna, great fish and wonderful specials. The wine list is extensive and priced for every pocket. We have never had anything but great food in the 30 years we have dined here.
Phenominal – I took several clinets to Il Toscano and everyone was blown away by both the food and service. I would highly recommend trying it if you can get a table.
You have to have their Fresh Mozzerella appetizer & their Napolean for dessert! – I've been to the restaurant on various occassions and felt compelled to write about it! I usually travel to the City with my friends but someone suggested Il Toscano and off we went. I think my first visit was 3 years ago and I keep returning. The reason is very simple, the food is always fresh and delicious and I've never been dissapointed. The food is not typical italian style cuisine and really, it is outstanding. The waiters are always helpful and the service is very good. They have an extensive wine list and if you need a suggestion they can guide you in the right direction. I would suggest going on a Thurs or Friday night. Saturday for me, is just too busy. I could go on and on but i'll stop now - go see for yourself!
