Restaurant Review

Ristorante Toscana is popular with diners who enjoy BYOB Italian food with rustic Tuscan ambiance. A good place to come to celebrate a special occasion.

Ristorante Toscana is a family owned restaurant that serves a large selection of both traditional and non-traditional Italian dishes influenced by the latest trends in Italian cooking.

In the mood for an unusual taste of one of their tasty non-traditional Italian specialties? Start your dinner with the Warm Crab Cheesecake appetizer. Cheesecake for an appetizer? Yes, it’s a crabcake with a blending of cheeses, jumbo crabmeat, chopped shrimp, roasted pepper, & cucumber fresco.

Other non-traditional appetizer dishes are the Crudo (Italian Sushi) with several tuna and shellfish selections.

Many of the pizza and beef menu items are cooked on a their wood-burning stove. They offer a good selection of well prepared thin crusted brick oven pizzas.

While the decor is attractive, it tends to be a bit overdone with it's attempt to create Tuscan ambiance. The spacious, ornate interior features a wood-fired oven, faux-stucco walls, chandeliers, walls adorned with large pictures, and tiled flooring.

For a summertime dining treat, eat outdoors in the attractive courtyard with Tuscan ambiance complete with overhead grape vines, flowers, and a waterfall. It's one of the top outdoor patio dining restaurants in South Jersey.
