We started with a waiter who recognized our accent (what accent?) and told us he was from Jersey...Here goes the old what baseball team do you support line...needless to say my husband in not into sports at all but he bantered with the guy cordially.

We started with the fried calamari which was excellent! Crisp, light, and very tender. Then the salads. The plate had been rubbed with raw garlic, as customary is some Italian provinces but this was soooo strong it made us wince. It actually made the salad burn our mouths. If you have ever eaten raw garlic you know what I mean. Bread and olive oil to dip accompanied it.

Sy had lobster ravioli that he declared was very good, Paul had Chicken Picatta and he loved it. I asked for shrimp fra diavlo. This is shrimp in a spicy marinara sauce. This dish was SO FRIEKEN HOT it made my eyes water. I love hot/spicy food. Eat it all the time. The cook must have slipped and over peppered it! WOW! Paul tasted it and declared it inedible. The chef was kind enough to make me another void of all spice. The chef handed me a jar of red pepper and told me to go at at it myself... :shock: That didn't go over big with me.

All in all it was fine and the guys loved it. So, I would give it a solid B.

We had eaten here last year and it was good. This year it was fantastic! They REALLY stepped up their game and everything from start to finish was amazing!
We started with fried calamari...excellent. Tender, crispy, and light!
Image

Next came the salad and bread. The salad was delightful in that the dressing was light and fragrant. The plate rubbed in garlic we had on our last visit was long gone and this salad was done correctly! The bread was a warm herb bread with an a herb infused olive oil dip. WOW!!
Image
Image

Four our entrees Paul had the Chicken Piccata and loved it yet again. He said the chicken was so tender he was cutting it with his fork! It came with penne and crispy fried carrot or sweet potato curls (we couldn't tell :dontknow: ) but they were great!
Image

I had shrimp/calamari Fra Diavolo over pasta. The portion was the biggest I have ever seen!! Paul and I ate most of the seafood and left the pasta...it was just way too much. It was really delicious! Not too hot just the correct amount of spice. The shrimp in the sauce must have been caught that day they were so sweet and tender. Just a darn good meal!

Would we return...without a doubt!! http://villatuscanna.com/

Hi Em, yes this place is good, we just ate there 2 weeks ago, and even though
it is not on the menu I asked for Veal Fra Diavolo which they were happy to make.

this is the 2nd time this year we ate here and are pleased with the service and the food.

I complimented the server as she never once said "no problem" to us, that
is the worst thing a server or anyone who gives service can say.

You can find discounts by typing the name of a restaurant or any business, town and word/s discount coupon, I got mine from the Sun News it was BOGO Free.

Great review - glad to see an establishment incorporating feedback....

" she never once said "no problem" to us, that

Feel the same way.... a big pet peeve of mine.

Kirk, I have only 2 things that bug me, 1 is the "no problem" when I ask for something, I know it's not a problem, it's your job! The other is people who drive in the left lanes without passing, this causes road congestion and other problems.

I think it's a generational term - a habit of an age group. They probably don't even realize what they are saying.
To me, it's similar to people who start a sentence with the word 'like.' (Like I was walking down the street and.... Like you remember when we....Like we saw shells on the beach.....)

Do you dig what I'm saying?
Far out, man!
Are we off-topic yet? LOL!

Must be a male-centric generational term since Patrish's feedback is the same as what Jan gave me.... "they're young, they know not what they do".

Geez.... when did I become a cranky old dude ?

I agree it is the same as using the word "like" I use bust on my daughter
and now she has stopped using it.

Yet, I hear many older servers starting to use the "no problem" also,
proper response would be, I'll get that for you right away, I'll be right back
with that for you or something along that line and when they come back my
response is thank you, to which a, your welcome will you need anything else at this time? is going to get a server bigger tips.

Um was the word in use for years before like :)

Dude, I got to get going, like I have to shower and whatnot, man I got me some cards to deliver to pep's that be checking in, what a totally rad way to make living. Um think I'll walk the Boardwalk a bit and get, you know, a beer and watch um people a bit.

Lol, ok great review, Em. We seem to have strayed from the topic though I an certainly willing to continue this conversation in the internet cafe. I can add my two cents for sure.

Went here with a friend for dinner 2 nights ago. He had the chicken parm and I had the eggplant parm. Both dishes were delicious I'll definitely be going back again. One side note it's not very often when I go into a restaurant nowadays and I'm the youngest person there. And it wasn't even close. Not that it's a bad thing just thought it was kinda funny.

Your "side note" made me laugh. I can assure you that every Senior Citizen in the Grand Strand is looking for a deal. Villa Tuscanna runs a BOGO coupon almost every week. It's good between 4:30 and 7:30. So if that's the time range of your dinner, I know exactly how that crowd looked. One of them might have been me! :cool:

Matter if fact, I have it on my coupon page. The offer is good through 3/17 this time.

Hi Patrish,

Was doing some research on different restaurants that we haven't tried yet, and found this review of Villa Tuscanna. Do you know if they still offer the BOGO coupon? I looked on your coupon page but didn't see it. Thanks in advance!

I usually pick up the coupons either from e-mail, the restaurant itself or sometimes other coupon websites including the Sun News.

The only place they seem to post regularly is the Sun News. I will add them to my coupon page the next time they advertise, but in the meantime you can watch for their ad here:
