I am so very happy that we found Cafe Toscana!!! I read many reviews and went on their website to view their menu. I had never eaten there before, but I am so glad to have celebrated with family for our son's graduation this past Sunday !!!! I can not say enough about their fine menu selections. A very nice...

My first time to this Metro style cafe in the square in Wilkes Barre was a total delight. We were celebrating my son's college graduation as well as his girlfriend and her brother. Two families with a total of 18 guests. Place was clean, accommodating and festive. Had drinks, appetizers, dinner and desert. Service was spot on and every morsel... More

Don't let the "on the square" location discourage you from visiting this little gem. Service is impeccable. The food is well prepared. Pricing is reasonable.

The location is great when traveling, close to hotels, gas stations, convenient stores as well as other restaurants. The drinks are tasty and the food menu offers a pretty good variety. Price wise they're about average for any sit down restaurant. The biggest perk is their "rewards" program. Sign up on your smartphone as soon as you arrive and you... More

Seated quickly and wait staff was very attentive. The chicken was a bit dry and the vodka sauce was very salty. This is my first visit. Willing to try a different dish.

Food was excellent from Caesar Salad, Bread with seasoned olive oil, bruschetta, and entrees. Reasonable pricing and full bar. I walked in without a reservation ( I would definitely suggest), luckily got the last available table. Restaurant was packed by 7pm. Would definitely return.

We had reservations for a preconcert dinner and I'm glad we did as the place filled up quickly! Service was good, with in or two wrinkles when it came to dessert. Main courses were excellent and the choice of wine was good and decent value. Worth a visit.

My husband and I love this restuarant sooo much as do my daughter Tara and husband Erik, also my son mark. The only problem is-- there are so many delicious entrees that we have a hard time choosing which entree to have. We have tried so many different ones and they were all fantastic. Definitely the best Italian restuarant in... More

Great authentic Italian food. Been there twice now and not dissatisfied either time. The complimentary Brushetta and dipping sauce is worth the trip in and of itself. Had the asparagus ravioli and the veal toscana and both were very good as well as the desserts. Try this place if you want really good Italian food.

Cafe Toscana is a great Italian restaurant located on the square in Wilkes-Barre. I've had dinner and lunch there a few times and for the most part the food has been great. The chicken Marsala is on of the few that is done to perfection. The only disappointment was in my last visit. I had the shrimp over pasta and... More
