This place is the BEST! I come here for happy hour with colleagues during the week bc they have complimentary hors d'oeuvres and great drink specials (plus beautiful outdoor seating when the weather permits)...AND now I just found out they do live Opera and Tango dancing on Saturday nights a couple times a month! Check out the opera, its amazing!! Plus the food is always phenomenal, and the staff treats you like one of the family. GREAT PLACE!!!

My experience at Tuscana West was amazing. The menu has a large variety, which met the needs of the pickest eater I know. The place has a great atmosphere, but the bar is what really stole my attention. It's gorgeous, the cocktails were UNREAL, and the bartenders are really cool! Any professionals looking for a quick and delicious lunch, Tuscana is the place:)!

We look forward to returning to this quiet gem! Selected for its proximity to the National Zoo, we would return simply to enjoy the food and atmosphere. All this at a reasonable price -- a rare combination in D.C.

Got food poisoning on Feb 17 2007. Owner is a rude uneducated person...Wants no accountability.
