A notable trattoria, and a wonderful gathering place for families and friends, Toscana, now celebrating 25 years in business, is one of the most successful Italian restaurants in Los Angeles.

Since we opened our doors in 1989, Toscana, continually sets the benchmark as an influential eatery where Hollywood celebrities, locals, and tourists alike go to enjoy true Northern Italian food.  Amidst our cozy yet lively atmosphere reminiscent of a Tuscan trattoria, along  with our friendly, impeccable staff, every guest --- famous or not ---  is treated like family, from the moment they walk through the door, until we hug them goodbye.

TOSCANA owners, Mike & Kathie Gordon, along with Chef Luca Crestanelli, have recently opened a new Italian restaurant in the beautiful wine-growing Santa Ynez Valley.  S.Y. Kitchen is, in the owners’ description, a California version of a little Italian farmhouse.

Bar Toscana was designed in a sleek, contemporary lounge-style concept inspired by urban Milan.  We created this intimate cocktail bar next door to our storied TOSCANA, longtime home for Hollywood’s elite.  Bar Toscana provides an intimate spot for quiet drinks prior to dinner, a light meal before or after, or an interesting sip of Italian mixology anytime.
