So Impressed
We had not tried this restaurant until it had been established for quite awhile, we are sorry we waited so long! It was the best food my husband or I had eaten...maybe ever! We then took our teenage daughters back with us two weeks later, they LOVED it as well. I cannot say enough about the food, it was cooked perfectly & tasted amazing! The tri-tip gorgonzola is beyond wonderful! The service was great! I love this restaurant, it is clean and beautifully decorated! I am buying all my family gift certificates to this place for Christmas! I really hope this place is around for a very long time!

John Hiller did not write the previous review! I spoke to him and he knows nothing about it and has never been to cafe tuscano, although he and his wife are going to as our guest in the near future. Not sure why this guy is trashing us on all review sites but it is bogus. You can tell the one's he writes, same tone, illegal immoral and bad spelling. Hope you ignore them and see for yourself. You will love it!

Food was average. Giving the bad score for the way the wait staff conducted themselves. I heard alot of very foul language and seen some very inappropriate touching. I didn't even stay to finish my meal because I was so disgusted. I am appauled and very grateful I did not have children with me. I don't know how or why the manager would hire such people but needless to say I will never go back and will not be recommending Cafe Tuscano to anyone.

Pocatello isn't exactly known for its restaurants. This one, I believe, is on its way to becoming one of Pocatello's best. It's amazing to walk into a gas station into a very nice-looking restaurant, and bigger than you would expect. It wasn't too loud. Atmosphere was casual yet intimate. We had a bottle of Dry Creek Zinfandel, which was quite good: not too fruity or dry, smooth, and very pleasant. We had the Cheese Melange appetizer which was wonderful and our kids ate it as well. My husband had the Tri-tip Fettuccine Gorgonzola, which was excellent, but his steak was more well done than the medium he asked for. It was however, still excellent. I ordered the Ribeye Steak (with balsamic caramelized onions), but I think I actually got prime rib, as I overheard that they were out of the rib eye. Again, it was more well done than medium, but so very tasty. The garlic mashed potatoes were delicious and not over-seasoned, but they were a little cold. Veggies were good. We had our two children with us, ages 4 and 2. They ordered off the kids menu: spaghetti and mac 'n cheese. The portions for the kids were huge. I would suggest you ask for a smaller dish to serve your little kids on as the dish the spaghetti came in was very large. The spaghetti was good. The mac 'n cheese was wonderful. The pasta was penne with a cheese mushroom sauce, and it was pretty amazing. I would suggest that Cafe Tuscanp offer a grown-up version of this dish or offer it as a side because I could have eaten all of it myself. Overall we were very pleased with our experience and will return. I have no need to frequent Sandpiper after eating here. Prices were comparable, the food was as good if not better, and ironically, the atmosphere was better, and quieter than Sandpiper. Our server was attentive and did very well in spite of it being his first day. Thank ou very much. We will be back!

fresh food, great atmosphere and THE BEST soup
First, if you have never tried their crawfish bisque, then you need to stop in immediately. Their other soups are good, too, as are their salads, sandwiches, pizza, pasta and dessert; but the bisque is outstanding. Second, the ingredients are always fresh and the recipes inventive. Third, once you step inside, you would never know the restaurant shared space with the Shell station: it is classy but casual, with friendly, professional servers. Fourth, the cocktails and the happy hour prices are fantastic. Finally, a lot of the dishes favor richness over strong seasoning, so, unless you are going for the salad, make sure to bring your appetite.
