Restaurant Review

Toscano Ristorante, located in downtown historic Bordentown, nestled into one of the older buildings, is a "Hiiden Gem" in a town with many good restaurants

Toscano Ristorante is popular with diners who come to celebtate a special occassion, or to enjoy an "Old World" culinary treat complete with bar service, and an excellent Italian & steak menu

The restaurant is owned and operated by John Antinoro, with Antinoro's nephew Zack Melker, serving as executive chef.

The ambiance is elegant but not imposing, having a pleasant vibe with soft lighting and tables set with faux candles, and white table linens.

The entrance opens up to a small bar on your way to settling into the bi-level dining area with seating for  20+ tables.

They offer an extensive selection of standard menu items and daily specials. The menu is well executed using fresh, quality ingredients with mostly traditional Italian classics and a few creative selections.

Save room for their sumptuous desserts, they are made in-house.

They serve a value priced Prix-fix menu on Monday and Tuesday. Thursday is Steak Night!

There is street parking and a large public parking lot across the street next to Farnsworth House.

Toscano Ristorante is open seven days/week: Mon 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm, Tues, Wed & Thurs 11:30 am - 2:30 pm & 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm,
Fri 11:30 am - 2:30 pm & 5:00 pm - 9:30 pm,
Sat 5:00 pm - 9:30 pm, &    Sun 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Reservations are recommended, especially on high demand weekends.

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
