REVIEWS OF Tuscan Kitchen IN New Hampshire

T Zirn

The food was amazing.

Michelle Whisnant

The wait staff was excellent and attentive. I found it overpriced for ok food. 12$ mozzarella appetizer was 4 oddly sized 3 bite pieces. 9$ side salad was a handful of greens and 2 cherry tomatoes. I got the half chicken... which was missing half it was a 1/4 chicken half the breast was gone. Portions are small, my asparagus was not trimmed (inedible ends) and not well cooked. Wasn't impressed.

Antonio Magni

The food is really good, fresh imported from Italy.The cuisine is not 100% italian, an american maybe cannot recognize the difference but as an italian i can tell that sometimes they mix flavors that are considered a blasphemy for an italian. They still deserve 5 stars, nothing to say about it!


Had a very nice dinner here, the filet mignon was delicious!!

Reynard The Fox

Had the fried calamari and the Bolognese . Service was fast and food was hot and flavorful.

Paula Baxley

So the food and service go without saying. I had a networking event, left ray-bans on a cafe table... there 2 hours later.

Karyll H

The waitress was very informative. She knew her stuff n the food was really good.

Robert Zeller

Good food, made well. My wife loves it, so I do too.

Sue Dearborn

First time visit. Delicious! Courteous staff, food prepared well with lovely presentation. Decor and ambiance inviting.

Paul Gibula

Great wild boar sauce.

Laina Reavis

Service was great and the food was amazing. We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday and they brought out a delicious peanut butter cannoli. We sat there for 2 hours with friends and never felt rushed to vacate the table. We absolutely love this restaurant!

Hi Batalla

Good food!

Peter Lavris

Good service and great food = expensive menu prices. Waitress was nice and friendly.

Toya Brown

Very, very nice ambiance. The food was just okay, but I ordered steak. I've had better steak from steakhouses

Gina Cruikshank

Went for happy hour. Wine was delicious, food was excellent and service was top notch. Meatballs were on the small side but otherwise everything was wonderful. Will definitely go back.

Cathy Kramer

Pricey but, have a great selection of pastas, breads and cheese. Can not resist the selection of desserts and cannoli. Market side reasonable with some items.

Tim Smith

I get that they are trying to provide a "fancier" italian option to the Seacoast, but man does it feel like a facade. Everything feels over priced, the atmosphere isn't anywhere near intimate, and the flavor of the food isn't anything special to write about. You'll end up paying close to $16 dollars for 4 specialty ravioli and be completely underwhelmed when you get it. This place just feels like a rich, aging trophy wife's equivalent of a dive bar.

A_A_RON Greenwood

Amazing!!! I dont know where to start. From apps to drinks to dinner they exceeded out expectations. And the service was top notch. And the deserts are to die for. Thank you guys for the great food me and my team will be back again!!!

Peter Desfosses

Amazing food, wonderful staff, and beautiful decor!

Brandon Meyers

Expensive for what you get. Okay service.

Mike Williams

Very good Italian food and excellent service.

Linda Gelardi

Great experience. Delicious food, great service, relaxing atmosphere

Jake B

I have not eaten at the restaurant, but I have bought a lot of groceries, so this is only for the grocery side. This is a good place for specialty Italian groceries. They have especially good deli meats and baked goods, but you can find almost anything you might be looking for here, as long as it's Italian. The deli counter also makes really great sandwiches. I recommend the Italian and the prosciutto with fig, in particular. Everything here is excellent quality. The only reason I deducted a star is that I feel like it's more expensive than it should be. I appreciate that specialty stuff is going to cost more, but I think they go a little beyond what is necessary here. But bread here though - prices seem fair to me, and quality is excellent.

Jaclyn Orlando

Not sure why there are so many complaints. Excellent service and the food was very good. The only reason why we will not be returning soon would be the lack of vegetarian options. There are definitely not enough. However what we did order was delicious. Again the service was fantastic. Thank you Michelle!

Dave Runnals

Probably better than olive garden

Daisy Moon

Very nice menu. Great drinks. Meals seemed small, but were very filling. They are actually very appropriate to real portion sizes. Beautiful ambiance. Friendly staff & the market next door is has a beautiful variety.

heide conlin

Wonderful atmosphere and delicious food. Our server was very professional and courteous without being pretentious. Wish we tried them sooner. Owners have not cut corners and it shows.

Clint Crosbie

Food looks like Italian food but tastes like cardboard.

Chris Balloch

Shopped at the market. All the staff were extremely helpful and pleasant to work with. I purchased meatballs at have at home and they were delicious. The 4 star rating is because the homemade take home pasta sauces don't have an expiration date so your not sure when they were made or when to consume them by.

Janice Amabile

Great place.

Paulina Sarao

Was surprised it was empty on a Saturday afternoon. Our waitress was nice but the food was awful. I’ve been to the Salem and Burlington locations and always had a great experience. However, this one was bad. My husband’s chicken wasn’t fully cooked. Sent it back. My dish was mostly pasta with two pieces of chicken. My mom boyfriend’s pasta was not what he ordered. We complained and only received an apology. Not coming back here.

John Andrews

Excellent quality cuisine and super-friendly customer service in a magnificent setting.

Holley Ackerson

Fantastic service, beautiful decor, plenty of parking and amazing food & cocktails. Can't wait to go back!

Dave Clough

Had a business event there. Room was great, staff was great. Their pizza was the perfect nibbles during networking.

Celine Frechette

Awesome bar!

Malcolm Ryder

Fresh pasta!

Andrew Saati

Very good service, very good food, never had a bad meal there. Beef is a little pricey but worth it

Graham Long

Cold cinghiale sauce, poor bolognese, vinegary red wine

Denise Buck

Delighted! Stopped with friends for dinner. Wonderful food, perfect service, comfortable atmosphere!

Paul Scalera

Food and service excellent. No explanation that Italian water was $6. Meal price had to be corrected and was wrong on receipt. (Eggplant with vermicelli $27?!) Thought pasta with meatball was included but pasta was extra $6. Maybe was on menu and I missed it.

Kyla Carter

On the pricey side and was not impressed with my meal. The blueberry lemonade martini was really good though.

Tyler Dubovsky

Had the 38oz ribeye.... Was AMAZING

Meryl Waldo

waiter was fabulous. food didn't have much flavor. very expensive. disappointed.

Andrew Hodson

Went to the restaurant in Portsmouth NH. My wife ordered the smaller portion of the Roasted Wild Mushroom ravioli. $16 gets you 3 raviolis! Pathetic! Tastes good, but 3? I ordered the QUATTRO FORMAGGI RAVIOLI. I got the full size portion for $26. Maybe 5 or 6 ravioli! Again, pathetic! Wines and food are way overpriced. It's a chain restaurant like Olive Garden!! My hard earned cash is better spent elsewhere!! Will not be back.


Disappointing. Salad was good, but pizza was the most basic pizza ever.

Keith Orr

Pizza was soggy and the server brought the wrong appetizer and drink. They fixed the problems, but there are some logistical issues here that they need to fix. Service should be better. The pasta was good. Good offering for both kids and adults. Plenty of space and easy to sit at big bar.

Katie Doyle

My husband and I had our wedding at Tuscan and can not say enough about how amazing Amanda is! I was worried when the original woman I was working with had left, but we really lucked out with Amanda taking over. Her experience in events, and weddings specifically, definitely showed and made the whole day go super smooth. She was always very responsive, accommodating, and kind when working with me throughout the planning. The wait staff was wonderful and the food was amazing! We couldn’t have asked for a better day.

A Cote

The food is expensive and the portions are tiny. This is not a place you should go if you want a filling meal let alone leftovers for lunch the next day.

Stephanie koch

Delicious lunch. Just the right portion size. Excellent service as well.

Raymond Hahn

Always great, food superb...

Nicole Bates

Wonderful service, delicious food, great atmosphere. Get the wild boar!

daniel dielsi

Had a great lunch, service was outstanding. Loved the Tuscan Market, would go again.

bill Cav

Clean, great staff & reasonably priced. Menu is limited but always well done.

Kerri Silverman

Outstanding Italian food, classy atmosphere! The portions are generous, and there is an option to get half orders. Our waiter was knowledgeable, personable, and clearly proud to work for this family. We're on vacation in NH currently and wish we had this restaurant close by to us in RI. Until next time...

Kelly Bisson

The waitress acted like we were an inconvenience. We almost walked out, as we had been sitting there for at least five minutes before she even came over with water. The food was great though!

Mike Pagán

Excellent service, food was great, great atmosphere.

Roberta Surprenant

We had the lobster ravioli and it was delicious! Very nice waitstaff.

Hannah Baum

I really wanted to like this place, but it was just a complete mess. The wine menu is horrendously long, and the food menu is too small. Ordered a meatball for an appetizer, which was roughly the size of a fist. Entree was a margarita pizza. Our server was way too talkative, and gave us a detailed description on the exact things that the chefs do in order to produce bread or cheese or whatever it was he was talking about. We were served a basket of bread prior to our meal. It came with a hunk of Parmesan cheese and honey and then a plate of oil, vinegar and olives for dipping. Oil extremely bitter. Meatball was served to us in what looked like a cooking pot. It had handles on the outside. The marinara sauce was extremely watery and the meatball was piping hot on the inside and cold on the outside, as if it had been microwaved. Pizza was served on what looked like a cutting board and it was lukewarm. On the upside, it was a clean place. Nicely decorated.

Ezra Kovacs

Wonderful place. Waitress Erin was excellent. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Fantastic food and service definitely one of the best places to eat.

Russ S

The food was delicious! Got the margarita pizza and loved every bite. Definitely would recommend

Joel Colodner

Very good, fresh food. Handsome, if corporate atmosphere. Too much Sinatra.

Karin Bulger

My son wanted a small wedding reception, so they chose the Tuscan Kitchen in Portsmouth. It was beautiful ! The atmosphere is absolutely elegant ! The meals were delicious, and the wait staff was so professional !! They made us feel like guests at a royal wedding. I would definitely recommend Tuscan Kitchen for any function.

Kelly .

This was a very nice restaurant in a busier part of town. The wait staff was unbelievably nice and energetic the entire time I was there. I went with a group of colleagues who have no dietary restrictions. The menu was great for them. I am a vegan and there were no obvious vegan options on the menu. That being said when I requested that one of the pizzas be made without cheese and just vegetables the waitress said that was not a problem and the pizza turned out great. Sometimes requesting that a meal be made vegan is met with pushback and hesitation which was not the case here. I appreciate their willingness to make something that was not on the menu and it still tasted great. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to others and hope that in the future they are able to add some vegan options to the menu.

Sandy Pochapin

We held a dinner function at Tuscan Kitchen in Portsmouth NH and the staff could not have been more helpful. They spelled our company's name wrong on the menus they had prepared (a common mistake) but quickly reprinted and redistributed them when we pointed out the error. The wait staff was extremely accommodating and the room was set according to our specific requests which is unusual (unfortunately). We were so pleased that we're going to schedule some of their other restaurants for future events.

Tom DiMartino

It’s very Pricey. The food? Meh. And would not accept AMEX gift cards. I’d seen the TV commercials for the Tuscan Kitchen where they show a hollowed out bowl of parmesan cheese, pasta is rolled around in it and then truffle is scraped over the pasta. It looked great and so I wanted to try this dish. So, I went to the Tuscan Kitchen on Sunday 1/6 with my son for lunch. I didn’t realize that the above is only a Tuesday night special and so I had the chicken parm instead. It was very good although a bit light on the pasta. I came back on Tuesday night (1/8) for dinner with my wife and ordered the truffle pasta dish. Let me state here that it is a small dish of pasta with melted cheese and cost $45.00. Strangely though the waiter told me it was $42.00. After seeing it I was shocked since I thought there’d be a lot more to it than simply a simple small dish of pasta. It didn’t have any truffle flavor but tasted of sage. My wife ordered a salad ($26.00) that arrived with limp and soggy lettuce and was tasteless. The added beef was fatty. The pistachio gelati desert with added shot of biscotti liquer was strong but very good. The waiter was ok. We asked for lemons for the water and they never came. He tried to give me pinot rather than the chianti that I ordered. The prices for a soggy, tasteless salad, small dish of mac and cheese, 3 drinks (2 glasses of chianti and a Sicilian spritz - $33) was $141.00. If they are going to charge these prices the food and service should be much much better. At the end, when trying to pay with my entirely valid AMEX gift cards (I just checked them online again), the waiter claimed that there was a problem with them. Not so. I wasn’t prepared to pay $141.00 (before the tip) on my debit card but that’s what I had to do. Strange that they had no problem taking my gift cards on Sunday but on Tuesday night there was a “problem.” For this level of quality and the high prices, the Tuscan Kitchen (in Portsmouth) is not worth your time or money. I find it unlikely they will be in business long at this location. Best steak salad? Agave in Newburyport or Portsmouth. Best pasta/Italian? Giuseppe’s in Newburyport.

Larry Scott

Great place , fine food , great service , fantastico market too

Joseph Pellegrini

I expected a bit more from this location but i've only been once so far. Calamari was very both good but very salty and the meat dish was not quite prepared as requested although realistically not a big problem. I will need to visit again to better determine. Wine selection was quite large and the attached market was worth strolling through post dinner. Its certainly worth checking out if you have never been before or are just looking for something without going into the heart of Portsmouth. This review is based off a single visit and should not be weighted too heavily.

Mark W

Great food but do not expect it to be inexpensive. Staff is amazing and we were not rushed. Apps/meal timing was perfect. Looking for a nice date night this is one of my go to places.

Janet Richards

Excellent food, great service and plenty of room. Outside seating beautiful!

Laurel Pulsifer

Menu has so much to chose from. We had appetizers, salad, a pasta meal. Each item was beautifully presented, and delicious. Sat outside on the casual, relaxing patio. Loved it all. Went to the market after dinner and bought yummy desserts to take home. Great experience, highly recommend.

Alethea Carr

The dishes here are delightful, and they offer the option of an 'appetizer size' instead of the massive portions that come with regular main courses, which I took advantage of. My single complaint is that while the waitstaff is cheerful and keeps a professional distance, they might be spread a little thin. As the evening grew busier, our water server and even our excellent waiter fell behind. Nevertheless, we would eat here again any time.


Excellent! just a little overpriced.

jayne ercolini

The pasta dish I got was delicious!! The ceaser salad was a disappointment!!!

P Der

Postives: Service is great, bread is fantastic, atmosphere and ambiance are nice. Negatives: The food is mediocre. I've been here 3 times with large groups of people and the food is generally drowned in butter and bland.

Susan Griffith

Excellent food and service.Calm atmosphere,Sunday night!

Michael Scott

Excellent place friendly service and excellent food. Please put one up in the North Conway area!


Food was delicious and our good server enhanced our meal with his fine service and conversation!

Robert Barmore

Great food and service

Stephen Priest

Great food and service! My server was friendly, outgoing and well informed about the menu items and had personal recommendations. I had the Tortelli Al Brasato, braised beef short rib in a ravioli with parmesan cheese, red wine reduction and cioppolini onion. I asked for it without pancetta. For dessert, tiramisu with coffee. Fresh bread with dipping oils and olives. I was offered a refill on the

Nancy Williams

We went on Valentine's Day which always is a busy night. There were 3 couples in our party. Our waiter was awesome and took the time to explain different items on the menu and suggested having several different appetizers verses one entree so you could sample a variety of different food. Everyone was pleased with their meals and appetizers. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was due to the very long wait between drinks, appetizers and the meal. I'm not sure if the kitchen was overwhelmed with the crowd or maybe they were under staffed. We'll definitely go back again.

Brian Stevens

Great place! wonderful environment with friendly staff

Dom Baldassarre

Great food and great atmosphere.

Christina LaRoche

Deee-lish, AND they went above and beyond, as I called it in from the road and it was plated when I sat, just before meeting for a seminar run through.

Bernice Denehan

Great staff and atmosphere. Service was a bit slow for a family weeknight dinner, and the calamari was poorly breaded. Half pasta portions were smaller than what you'd think of an appetizer being. The pizzas were delicious as was the fresh baked bread, so in one word, inconsistent. I will definitely give them another try however for the price they should make sure to bring the same attention to detail they have for the atmosphere to their menu.

Shaylah Gates

Food was ok, needed more seasoning though. Waitress was very kind and apologetic. Two tables left before getting their food. Long wait for food, then our first course was delivered to the wrong table. And my husband's meal was the wrong portion size. We ordered dinner size and received appetizer size.

david hayes

Good menu. A bit expensive for lunch.

Debbie Gossel

Fantastic food, authenticity and quality equal to that when living in Italy. Great presentation and taste from drinks and appetizers, to main course and desserts. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Highly recommend.

Preston Butler

Friendly bartender. Great food.

Mark Henderson

It took an hour for our food to come out to our table. The portions were too little for the price we paid. The soda didn't have any carbonation. We told the server that it had no CO2 in it and she brought back another just as flat. The server brought the check over to the table and didn't ask if we wanted anything else. Just dropped it on the table. We will not be going back there again.

MrJcspar .

Traditional and modern Italian fare. Attentive knowledgeable staff who care about your experience. Will definitely be back.


Finally our first visit. Very delicious, great service and a really nice atmosphere. Tough choosing which size plate to get, glad I decided on the small plate...

James demonico

It's a beautiful place ambiance is great. Food is not. All Italian meals taste like chef boyardee. All tomato sauce tastes awful. Like with most Italian restaurants that have terrible sauce all dishes that come with sauce are terrible. If you like sauce that comes from a number 10 can and microwaved pasta you might like Tuscan kitchen. I'm surprised at the amount of business a restaurant like Tuscan kitchen does. I tried it once. I wouldn't eat there again even if it was free.

Mims Akhadoff

Great seminar!

Joey Thibeau

Amazing food and awesome service!!! Highly recommend, will definitely be going back and bringing more people

Go Compel

Amazing food. Everything taste very distinguished. This might be hard for people used to "Americanized" Italian food. Olive Garden is fake food, this is real, this taste like the quality food I get when traveling the world. The bolognese sauce is amazing and brings back memories of an authentic Italian experience. The breads are all phenomenal, rustic which reminds me of how they did it in days gone by. I really do not understand how anyone could complain. If you go to Italy this is what you will get. If you like American Italian you can find a chain. This is the best Italian food I have found this side of Europe. Service isn't that bad either.

Jay Baldwin

Love the atmosphere and market. I went during a happy hour for beer and apps. I paid the happy hour price of $10 for the calamari that had literally 10 pieces. I can do simple math, that is $1 per little piece of calamari. Was annoyed by that and didn't order more food.

Frankie Inmann-Arbo

This place is a very relaxing place to sit and enjoy a meal or some drinks. I was very surprised with how peaceful of an environment this place is.

Ray Stevens

Yum, excellent service

Jesse Richardson

Possibly the best Italian food in New England? Yeah...I'll go with that

Karen Desmarais

Wow! Delicious food, great atmosphere. Out service Lori was fantastic!

Patrick Ronan

Service was excellent, food was mediocre. Not worth going back unfortunately

Tim Attenborough

Awesome!!! Had a fantastic seasonal lobster roll that was heavenly!! Also the meatball that my son didn't eat was one of the best I ever had, the tomato sauce on it was incredible too!! Service was great also.

Jordan Zimmerman

Great new restaurant! They're a very authentic Italian style restaurant. Everything is made from scratch in house and the quality shows. Our waitress was great! She walked us through the whole menu, otherwise we would have been lost trying to figure out what to order. All our food was delicious. I would definitely come back again.

Penny Holmes

Awesome food

Michael Pinard Sr.

An authentic Italian meal in the true European fashion. From a traditional Arancini appetizer to a main course of Mushroom Ravioli and Chicken Parmesan the taste of Italy comes to Portsmouth. A true leisurely dining experience with a sweet Cannoli ending!

Richard Moore

Good food and great service not worth the high price for the small servings everything is al- cart salad is not even include with my 6 ravioli for 28 dollars

N8 C

Nunzio is one of the best bartenders I've seen in the last 20 years and if you can speak Italian all the better, the food is genuine Italian and served as such. Not only one of the best places to eat but one of the best values all things considered. It really is an escape.

Nicole Lally

Great food. Very pricey

Lise Carr

Food was awesome but a little on the pricey side.

Patrick Joos

1/2 market 1/2 restaurant. The market has popular and common Italian branded food items at much much higher prices than normal. Anything sold here can easily be found nearby at a fraction of the price. After visiting the market. I lost interest in trying the restaurant.

John Bradbury

Food was ok but pricey

Karen C

Good wine and excellent pizza at bar

Karla and Bryan Moulton

Dont like it when the first question asked is "do you have a reservation" especially when 95% of the tables were unoccupied. Food was good but a bit pricey even when ordering their half portions...

Travis Perkins

Very good service and food.

Patti Visconte

Atmosphere was wonderful and the place is beautiful. Service was excellent. Drinks were also made to perfection. However, our meal was subpar. Meat was very tough and potatoes were overcooked on two out of three orders.

EDM guy

Expensive, but you can get a pizza for $13 too. Great if you need to celebrate a special occasion.

Therese O'Brien

Food is fantastic!

Rachel F. R. de Almeida

Atmosphere is Old World elegant. Service is friendly and efficient. We almost always do small plates for variety and were very impressed with the blending of flavors.

Joyce Miller

First time here. Food was very good. Potions were uneven. My chicken dish was plenty but his short rib raviolis left him needing more. Dbl Choc Espresso Cake so rich. Overall, would definitely come back.

Jeff Deming

Consistent and delicious. Mushroom ravioli is my favorite. The small plates and appetizers are all excellent. Great space, but with an intimate feel. Highly recommended for nice nights out.

Elizabeth Braconi

Great experience. Attentive service at the bar and many vegetarian options. I also love that it’s possible to get half portions of the pastas!

Cheryl Coffin

Excellent food and service! Our waiter was great! Definitely will be going back!

Haley Persons

Very nice. Loved the food. Very delicious

Marie Dexter

Had to leave after waiting 2 hours for our meals which we never got. Great atmosphere. Pleasant service. Management never came by to check on us and our situation. We won't return.

Onésimo Muñoz Pirela

Very low quality olive oil, the bread was super hard, the cesar salad wasn't good (lettuce and no flavor dressing) pasta was nice, the huge steak was good but needed more flavors no salt on it. The wine selection is not the best.

Mark Buscanera

Mark Antony Italian chef, pizza and fine dining from Boston to Maine . YOU ROCK!!!

Donald Shure

The hostess, manager was a great lady

Lauren Cummings

Food is great but the design of the building looks too commercial.

Jill Owens

Slipped and fell because there was water or some liquid on the floor. No follow up to see if I was ok. Joe would not approve of how this tuscan kitchen is run for sure.

Lee Irish

Excellent service. Food is very well proportioned. Beautiful presentation. Nice place for a special occasion.

Michael Vaughan

We are 2 for 2 here. Dinner you really need a reservation, we got lucky and sat at the bar last time. Today, we lucked in to the restaurant week menu. Kitchen had an issue, but they more than made up for it. Service is excellent.

William de Figueiredo

The food at this authentic Italian eatery is exquisite, but pricey. The wait staff is very professional and efficient. Had I the means and wherewithal I would be at this restaurant at least weekly. Handicap parking is conveniently located at the entrances. The pasta is all made in-house with imported Italian semolina flour. the bread is also made in house with imported Italian ingredients. Don't pass it up, it is the genuine article. Recently the owner split the Tuscan kitchen and Tuscan market. The Tuscan kitchen is still on Route 1 bypass in Portsmouth and the Tuscan market is being moved into downtown Portsmouth at 14 Market Square. This will be convenient shopping for Portsmouth residence, not so much for those of us coming from away. If you have a special event such as an anniversary call ahead and the staff will make your visit very memorable. We have not yet been let down.

Christopher Wolfe

Nice private event. Great wines from the Tuscan collection.

John Baker

I thought the food, particularly the freshly made pasta, to be very good. Unfortunately the service didn't hold up very well and we had some delays, and a couple of things were forgotten. All in all though a good dining experience

Verthosand Photography

Fantastic place to have romantic dinner. The wine list is extensive. The cuisine was absolutely delicious.

Ken Vivenzio

Party of 3...sent all food back. Pasta under cooked, sauce like ketchup. Drinks good. I challenge Mr. Faro to eat the bolognese and say it's his quality. We've been at the Salem facility and very much enjoyed it..WHAT HAPPEND??

Elliot Pratt

Over priced! Small portions.

Keri Burto

I have yet to receive a bad meal!

Jason Hall

My wife and I went for dinner and were not disappointed. They have an extensive wine list. Apparently, they import a bunch of food like olive oil to give it as authentic of an experience as possible. It's a fairly expensive restaurant, one of those ones where you buy sides in addition to the main dish. It's a cool ambience, and the food was rather good

Dave Houck

Adam, our server, was great. He did a great job of telling us the special and about what he brought out for a starter. The starter was a crustini with a sage butternut squash spread and focaccia with oil and 7 yr. aged balsamic vinegar. He recommended the warn spinach salad and he was on point!! I had lobster and sauteed shrimp ravioli and my wife the wild mushroom ravioli. Everything was delicious!!!

Haley Rines

Amazing food, & amazing atmosphere!! Our waitress was awesome, & i would absolutely recommend :) I will definitely be going back.

nay nae

clean, nice atmosphere, broad selection, friendly and helpful staff

Charlotte Baxter

I have been there 5 times. First time was awful, second and third times were great. 4th time the show was good, food not so much. Went back tonight and it started out good bit went down hill. I ordered a steak, rare it came out closer to medium so I sent it back second one was more fatty, lots of gristle and almost raw. The chief looked upset that the first one got sent back. Not sure if I will go back there again.

Erica Bruce

Excellent service and meat/cheese serving. Great description of food items included and eating options for beginner.

Brett Zola

I was in a private party. Service was excellent. Drinks we tasty. Food was excellent. The private room needs a bigger screen, difficult to watch the presentation on the small tv.

Kam Sakura

The atmosphere was very pleasing, the food had great taste and quality, the staff were enjoyable. The slightly high price can be overlooked compared to everything else.

Brian Reynolds

At Tuscan Kitchen, you will pay $50-60 per person (not including drinks) for a meal that is no better than what you can get at Carrabba's for less than half the price. The food is good, but not good enough to justify the prices. Many people rave about this place. I think that they are only raving because they want to justify the fact that they paid an exorbitant price for a mediocre meal.

Matthew Nixon

I've lived in this part of NH for almost 18 years now and somehow never stopped in at this restaurant before the other day, and I was overwhelmingly surprised! We were seated immediately and our waitress was the definition of a friendly, helpful and informative employee! This is all just before getting our food which was absolutely delicious and served quickly but still timed well for our dinner occasion. This was by far one of the nicest and most easy going dinners we've had in a long time!


Great food with even better service. I find myself continually coming back.

Joseph Patuto

The staff and service were great. However, the food was horrendous. Chicken parm has little to no sauce, chicken was dry and pink inside. The pizza was soggy and sauce was watery with no flavor. Can’t say I will be back.

Ginny Kupper

Spectacular food, but our server was a little slow. Sat at the cheese bar for dinner and a show. Chefs were really fun

Em M

Great sandwiches! Great food!

William Lovell

Very nice.

John Alvarado

Ordered the duck pansotti. It was perfectly balanced. One of the best meals I've had

Steven Rainville

Great food!

maud aldrich

Giovani (John) was amazing. He was attentive, informative, and fun! The food was great. It was definitely an eating experience. The place is beautiful and the seating gave our party of 4 privacy. Lots of variety in flavors in every course. Loved it!

Ernie Maliski

Not busy, and can see why. We've been to two other locations and were excited about it coming to Portsmouth. I ordered a different pasta than was on the menu, they got it wrong. They replaced it with the smallest portion of pasta I ordered. I could barely find it beneath the sauce (bolognese). I'm glad I ordered the meatball because there was no meat in the sauce. Our server was nice, but only apologized for the mistake. Another at our table had to send his raw chicken back. When it finally came, we had all finished eating, so he brought it home.will not be back.
