Dinner before Temptations show in Cohasset: Tosca or Saporito's?

  1. I actually prefer Cafe Tosca before a show. It's more relaxed, and if you sit at the bar it's easy to set your pace for dinner without being rushed. Their menu is smaller but the food is good.

      +1 You can hardly go wrong with this choice.

    2. I would say you can't go wrong at either but be sure and clarify that you are going to the show when you make reservations and take their guidance about how long you will need.

        1. Tosca cafe is a good choice but the best restaurant in that area is The Square Cafe. Biba is not bad either and it's 30 seconds from the tent.

            I agree on the Square Cafe rec. All too often Tosca gets thrown out there and I truly believe it's because of their PR hype. Always in the "best of" articles but I think their fans are living in the past. Add Alma Nove to the list of overly-hyped restaurants that are all show, and no go.

            I'm sure you meant Bia Bistro as a good place that is very close and after a recent dinner there I would agree on it being a fine choice.

              +1 on Square Cafe. Wonderfully executed food with top-notch service (the last time I was there, our server noticed something wasn't quite right with the dish he was presenting, and promptly made sure it was corrected). Reservations are definitely recommended.
