    When we First heard an Itailian Restaurant was going to open in Place of the Old "Chicken by the Sea", wich was a Disaster!, We gave them a Few Months and Would have Bet Anyone they Would be Closed! Every other Corner in Flagler Beach Claims to be an Italian Restuarant/Pizza Shop. For Those of You that Appreciate Real Old School Italian Cooking, The Tuscan Grille is the Real Deal!!! The place was Packed our First Time There, But they Still Greeted us as Soon as we Entered and We did have to Wait to be Seated.The Staff were Very Polite and Those Guests Leaving Did Nothing but Compliment their Dinning Experience to Us and Insisted the Food was Well Worth the Wait.After being Seated and Looking over the Menu, We Found it to have a Variety of Entrees Not Typical of the Local Fare in Town! We Received the Complimentary Fresh Toasted Italian Bread and Olive Oil Seasoned Dip.We Ordered the Soup of the day, wich was Pasta e Fagioli and "FANTASTIC" !! We asked for Extra Tomatoes on Our salads and was not a Problem or a Charge. I Chose the Chicken Panzanella with a Side of Fettuccine and Galic Butter.My Friend Ordered the Italian Trio, wich was a Combo of Eggplant Rollatini/Stuffed Shells and Lasagna.The Food was Great, the portions were Huge, and the Staff makes You Feel like Family! You Wont be Able to Resist Ordering Dessert When that Tray of Cannolli Cheescake, Cocconut Cake, Toasted Almond CreamCake,and the others i cant remember comes to your table! We would Highly recommend the Tucan Grille to Anyone that Enjoys Great Food,Huge Portions at a Very Reasonable Price.The Quality of their Food Speaks for Itself. Try to Save Room For Dessert, You Will be glad Ya Did!!!!!

    We had our first experience at the Tuscan Grille sitting in the little room in the back, although the food was good the noise level after a party of 6 sat down was terrible. We decided to give it another try and called for reservations requesting to be seated in the main dining area. Not 5 minutes after our wine and appetizers were served our dinner came out which we sent back as we had not finished our appetizer. When our dinner was brought out it was cold so we sent it back. The owner brought it out after it had been heated with an atitude making it seem like it was our fault it was cold because we sent it back, not the waitress's fault for serving it too soon.

    Service is part of the dining experience and if I wanted fast food I would go to McDonalds. Won't be going back, there are to many restaurants in the area with food just as good if not better.

    Comment from at The Tuscan Grille - I would like to apoligize to Karen of Palm Coast for her dining experience at The Tuscan Grille. I do read the reviews daily and was very disappointed that she was not satisfied with her experience at our restaurant. This is not common of our establishment, as you have read from previous reviews and we try to please all of our guests. I am sorry that the wait staff did not time the service of your meal ( which should also be a dining experience) so that you did not feel rushed. I assure you that if you reconsider and dine with us again, you will be satisfied. As you can see from our ratings, we have a 96% rating with FlaglerRestaurants.com and are rated #1 out of 29 restaurants with other dining sites. As for the noise in the back dining room we have corrected that with carpet and less tables. We try to make everyone that enters our restaurant feel welcome and have the best dining experience. To all of our past, present and future diners we thank you, and welcome you to our establishment!

    Went thee last Tuesday with out of town guests. It was absolutely wonderful. I had the lasagna, my cousin had the eggplant parm and my husband had the chicken dish and someone else had veal parm. We were all very satisified with our food. I had the lentil soup which was probably the best I ever had. Next time I am going to try the bean soup because they didn't have it that day but when I was there before everyone loved it. Our server was Colleen and she was great.

    One of my neighbors had a 70th birthday party about 10 days ago and there were 17 of us ladies and not one complaint. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the service was wonderful.

    It sure is about the best Italian food around.

    The place is really nice on the inside and we were anxious to try out this food! First off we had to ask for clean flatware. There was something stuck between the tines of the fork I had. The server seemed worried that her boss would hear and tucked it into her pocket and quickly brought me a new one. The chicken dish I had was covered in deep sauce. I have a feeling it was to try to mask the fact that the chicken had been prepared some time prior to the order being placed. It was touch on the edges and dry. The bread was about the same as any other "family" Italian restaurant. Not good or bad, just bread. The tea that I was assured was fresh tasted old and dirty. I asked for a soft drink instead. I felt bad for our server as she kept looking at who I can only imagine was a manager like she was worried about something.

    The food was not the bottom of the barrel but sure not worth what we paid for it. What wasn't worth it was the wait. Luckily we were with our boss so she knew why we were away from the office for almost 2 hours. The quality of the food did not make this type of wait understandable. I'll just go some place else next time.

    We had dinner here for the second time on 2/11/12. We had reservations and were seated promptly. The owner greets you at the door and is very friendly. There were 5 of us in our party and everyone's meal was delicious. I like that they don't rush you through your meal, you have plenty of time to talk and enjoy. If you want to eat before 8:00pm, make sure you make reservations a few days ahead. If you walk in without them, you will wait up to 45 minutes for a table, that's how good the food is! We will most certainly go back.

    It is all true, I was told this was the best Italian food outside of Italy. Great people, cozy and clean. We did not want to leave after our meal we had a great dining experience. Started, with the best dinner salad I have ever had. Ended, meal with a great cup of coffee and cannoli.

    Saw the reviews for this place on here and thought we'd give it a try. I guess we got there just in time as soon after being seated it started to fill up. I remember this building from when it was he driving license place and it's certainly changed since then! It's kind of plain and dull on the outside but it's nice and welcoming once inside. Our server was friendly and helpful and the food was very good and tasty. Portions are generous and prices very fair. We are glad we found this place and will return.

    The food is excellent and the surroundings are in good taste, but there was one very big problem that I think will hurt this restaurant. The owner (male) has a big attitude problem. We were not served for a hour and a half and instead of simply checking on our meals, we had to be scolded for even asking. We watched everyone around us come in and be served in a timely manner, but we were told that to get good food at his place expect to wait 1-1/2 hours. I don't believe you could make a turn over of customers if everyone had to wait that long. My suggestion is be a little kinder to your customers if you want them coming back and spreading the good words about the restaurant and not the bad ones.

    I ate there with two of my girlfriends a few weeks ago and it was very nice. The Christmas tree was still up and the atmosphere was very nice.

    We all had something different and we all like our meals although I would order something different next time, maybe lasagna or something with a sauce.

    My only complaint was the cutlery. It was thinner than plastic, and hopefully, they will do something about it. We went to a German Restaurant in Ormond a few years ago and the food was good but we had the same complaint and never went back. It may seem trivial but your knives and forks do make a difference.

    Last night my husband and I had our second dining experience at the Tuscan Grille. After enjoying our first meal there so much two weeks ago, my husband chose this restaurant for my birthday dinner. The weather was rainy, but the dining experience was wonderful. Even though it was a Wednesday night, he called for a reservation, and found that only one ws available-a 5:30 seating. When we arrived, we were greeted at the door by the owner, Michael, and even though the restaurant was packed, he still made time to chat and make us feel welcome. Once again, we found the food was absolutely delicious! Over two dining experiences, we have sampled the Eggplant Rollitini, Sausage & Peppers, Seafood Pescatore, and the Chicken Parmigiana - all mouth watering and scrumptious. Try to leave room for dessert. They have a wickedly tempting array of desserts from which to choose. Sadly, we have not been able to do so. However, last night, our plan to hold off on the desert was happily foiled as the staff surprised me with a birthday cannoli, accompanied by them serenading me with the "Happy Birthday" song. Terrific job everyone.

    My sincerest thanks and my highest compliments on the food, the staff, and the ambionce for our delightful dining experience. The Tuscan Grille has become one of our favorite dining spots. I/we can't wait to go back. Thank you Michael, Katherine, and all the staff. Thank you for making my birthday dinner a true celebration. My compliments to the Chef !!!
