Default Toscani's - WOW!

If you want flavor, garlic and Italian opera - this is the place to go!!! We had about 5 of us at their "new" soft opening. By "new", I mean tablecloths, white dishes that show off the color of a variety of pastas and sauces of YOUR choice. More garlic? They gave it! The staff is competent and they are excited about their NEW table service. Fresh salmon and pork chop was the special of the day. The pizza? LOTS of toppings and generous. The aroma of this place is great. I will definitely return, especially with extended family coming in. What kid doesn't like pasta and pizza???? Hats off to the three owners of this place!!!

WOW - Nice review. I'll have to put that on my list of places to try.

I love pasta but the salmon is a great choice too.

BTW - I thought Pia Toscano was a WOW contestant on Ameriacn Idol.

They will also deliver. We're in Hadley and have had several deliveries since moving here. They just charge us a little extra because of the distance we are from their restaurant. Unfortunately, we've cut back ordering from there because their Taramasu is simply just too good to resist ordering!

Quite frankly I can't answer that question. I probably wouldn't know authentic from "their" version if you explained authentic to me. I only know that I like it and I didn't like tiramisu when I first tried it way back whenever, and that was well into adulthood. You probably got to try it to see for yourself. They price it by weight so you can probably try a small amount at first. They pack it into a small styrofoam container (like a takeout dinner salad) that I'd guess would be about 4-5" square. You could try asking for it to be roughly one quarter or one half the capacity of the box. If you order for delivery from there, ask for their latest menu be delivered with your order. There's no online menu that I know of.

Yes, I've also had Toscani's deliver. I had a large gathering...and thought...gee, 3 extra large pizzas! Ordered a clam pizza..which is to die for and two other different ones. I made my own Caesar salad for the crew and they were happy as "clams". LOL. By the way, regarding tipping, these guys drive 20 minutes to get to my house. That's 40 minutes shop time and I give a generous tip. They are using their own gas ya know.

If they are doing it by weight it must be reallllllly good. Real tiramisu is made with ladyfingers, marscapone cheese sugar, cocoa and espresso. There is just nothing like it.

TB, do you order bird seed pizza for yourself? BTW, I too give the delivery person a nice tip!
