A "wonderful transformation" of a city "landmark" , this longtime North Beach bar is now owned by Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield (NYC's Spotted Pig) who have "kept the best parts" – the red leather booths, checkered floor and vintage murals – and added a "delicious" Italian menu; "knowledgeable" servers keeps the "vibrant scene" humming till late, and even when it gets "pricey" , fans say it still "feels authentic" and are "so glad it survived."

Too dark. Someone dropped a glass and I was worried the whole time that they didn't clean it all up a guy had to take out his phone to help the guy who was cleaning see. I love dark atmospheres but it becomes a bit of a safety issue. The line cooks work so hard and the whole bar / restaurant is beautiful. Their hot steamer is pretty cool.

This place has the most delicious and flavorful Italian I've ever had. My husband is a hardcore foodie and can be hard to please and he loved it. Recommend this over Cotogna down the road which was more expensive.

I love Tosca. Gorgeous setting, plus amazing drinks and beautiful pasta dishes. Great for a date or late night bite.
