Ristorante Toscano's chef and owner John Bruno comes from a family of chefs. John's training comes from growing up in a family rich in Italian tradition and endless hours working in the restaurants of friends in Chestnut Hill, PA.
Family is key to John's vision at Toscano. He regularly visits Cousin Tony's store in Brooklyn, NY for family recipes and secrets and complements many pasta dishes with Nana Bruno's sauce recipes. Come to Ristorante Toscano and let our family feed your family!
Ristorante Toscano is located just north of Main and Broad Streets in Lansdale, PA. Parking is available on the street, or at the back of the gas station next door in a spots marked "213 North Broad St. Tenants".
We hope to see you soon!

The Fall Classic is underway, and the Royals and the Giants are battling it out to see who will be the World Champions of baseball. This weekend and next week at Toscano's, there will be another classic competition - Joe and John will step up to the plate, so to speak, to see whose cuisine reigns supreme in our take on the popular Food Network show. Joe and John have each created a menu based on one of the cities in the World Series, and we need your votes to decide whose is the winner! Come in this weekend and try one of their 3-course dinners for $27.50, or order individual items from their menus. There's no instant replay in our kitchen stadium, so we'll have to rely on your cheers and jeers to see who hit a home run and who struck out. Here are the menus:
We are happy to announce that there is a pianist at Toscano's on the second Saturday of every month: local pianist Jerry Sena is joining us to share his extensive talent. Jerry was inspired to play piano while listening to the pianists at the dance school that his father directed - his father was the choreographer for Philadelphia's opera companies. Jerry enjoys sharing from that collection: opera themes, movie and Broadway musical themes, as well as classical piano and dance pieces. Jerry can also be heard Saturday mornings in Reading Terminal Market from 9 to 10 am.
First Friday is one of our favorite days of the month! On the first Friday of each month, two of our favorite piano players join us to provide an evening of live music. Jazz piano players Tom Linker and Gary Carpenter come to share their talents with us (they are also artists, and their work is on display at Toscano's). The music is always enjoyable, the food is always delicious - it is a wonderful place to be! Come join us for a great way to wrap up the week and kick off the month.
