Best of Boston

2007 Best Restaurant, General Excellence, South

Caffe Tosca

Why do we bestow this award, year after year, on Tosca? Simple: No other restaurant in the area manages to be so many things to so many diners, and with such class. Want a romantic evening? Reserve a corner table under the restaurant’s soaring ceilings. Got a big-deal dinner with friends? The unpretentious but professional service will make sure it goes off hitch-free. Seeking a foodie adventure? The bright, local flavors of chef Kevin Long’s menu will wow your palate. All of which is why we can’t—and wouldn’t want to—stop going back.
