    Menu was very limited—much more than it has been. Ok for me because I always order 1/2 pasta and fish. Harder for my husband. We sat where special events are held and it was quiet. Main dining room was noisy. Service was very good.

    Tosca has been around for a long time now - 20 plus years, I think. But, somehow, the quality has not only stayed top-notch but it's gotten better with age. I have never had a bad meal at Tosca - was there last night and the food was just superb, matched with fun and outstanding service. I've lived in Washington my entire life and to my mind, Tosca is simply the best restaurant in the area.

    We had a lovely evening dining here. The entire staff were lovely and the manager came over and checked on us. We started with the burrata and heirloom salad and then one of us had the risotto and the agnolotti which were both delicious. The restaurant decor is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience

    Tosca was our choice for a friend's birthday dinner, while we were all in DC for a conference. We were a party of four, and we all had a great experience. The service was outstanding. The menu made it difficult to narrow down our final choice. The wine list was exceptional, and I found one of my favorites. The presentation and the tastes were fabulous from beginning to end. And, they even made for the perfect, discreet birthday dessert. This was a special meal for a special night, and my search for the perfect restaurant was fulfilled.

    We hadn’t been to Tosca in several years and we were delighted to find that it was just as wonderful as we remembered. The renovated space is beautiful. Do not miss the focaccia! We went for a pre-concert meal and didn’t have time for a full bottle of wine but their wine by the glass selections are not your usual house wines - really special! We had both seafood and beef dishes as well as pasta and every bite was memorable. Truly one of the best restaurants in DC.

    Wow!! I had not been in several years due to the pandemic. It was also the day after my birthday. The restaurant realized I was a repeat customer and celebrated my birthday without any prompting. I was blown away by that level of service. The food was divine. Fabulous fresh taste and elegant presentation. The waiter who took care of me was warm and engaging. One of my best meals ever and I travel all over the world!!!!!

    Tosca is always outstanding....the new Tuna Appetizer was incredible and the short rib pasta is always amazing. Paolo and team are always the best....we did have to ask for our drinks and olive oil twice....but just a little unusual glitch.

    Absolutely fabulous food! Great service. The space has been redone to make it less open. We are fortunate that it survived its 19 month closing during the pandemic. The only complaint is the noise level to too high.
