After walking by dozens of times (my dentist is in the building), I finally dined at Toscana last week...for the first, and most likely last time.

While the service and room are fine (and nothing more), the food is truly pedestrian. As I was with a group, we had mixed antipasta, two pastas and a meat dish followed by desert.

The antipasta (incl. pizza) were all unremarkable. The pasta was undercooked, oversauced and dull
The meat was OK - lamb chops, but I could cook them at home with about 1 minute prep time, 5 minutes cooking time.
Deserts were fine - I don't really judge Italian restaurants by deserts anyway.
Espresso was excellent - highlight of the meal.

Another reason to avoid "industry" restaurants.
